The Hot Mess Life

Pinterest Weekend

It was a food centered weekend around here. Which in my opinion is NOT a bad thing!

I have been in a food rut lately and looking for new recipes, so what is a girl to do?  PINTEREST of course!!!

Home made pop tarts has been on my to do list for a while and they came out super yummy!  It was super easy too!

I also made some chicken gyros.  To be honest, I wasn't sure how these would turn out, but they are fantastic!  The fact that it is pretty healthy just makes it so much better!

I also made my own version of a caprese salad, and made an open faced sandwich.  I used all fresh ingredients we got from the farmers market this morning.  It was delish!

Aaaaand including a visit from grandma, weekly grocery shopping and chores it was a full weekend!  I will post the recipes for these in the following days, so be on the lookout!

This pretty much sums up how I feel!

The Bad Ones

I love taking pictures.  I take tons of them, my 300 gig laptop hard drive is almost full of just pictures and videos
. And Shutterfly.  Aaaaaand Google+.

Mainly because of her...

Not trying to toot my own horn, but I've taken some pretty nice pictures, which I have plastered all over Instragram, Twitter and Facebook.  (You can follow me on Instagram and Twitter, see the buttons on the side! Shameless plug I know).  Although it does help to have a super cute subject.

What you don't see are the gajillions of pictures I took to get that one good shot.  I've decided to show you these, for no other reason except that they are pretty darn hilarious.

A bit Austin Power - ish here. 

Ah yes, such a loving moment between mother and daughter.
She hit me in the nose with her head.  Ouch!


Dayum! This strawberry smoothie is it man! 

Foot. In. My. Mouth. 

Ya, I don't even know on this one. 

I don't take very good selfies. 
So I hope you all enjoyed these.  I've got plenty more so maybe on a slow day I'll break them out.  I know you're excited!

Back From The Weekend

Oh my what a needed break!  Nothing like a three day weekend to re charge and refresh!  I purposely did not make any set plans this weekend just so we could hang out and do what we wanted.  And let me tell you it was glorious!

We took our time, there was no rushing around, no major cleaning, just a good old relaxing, do what we want, when we want type of weekend.

Let's see quick recap, we did a COSTCO run (I LOVE COSTCO, like seriously LOVE)

We also did some Labor Day sale shopping and snagged some very good buys! Scored myself an $11 dress from Old Navy, thank you very much!  Husband made ribs on Monday, yummmmmmm... I made cinnamon rolls.  Your Welcome.  

We also discovered Bubble Guppies and are currently obsessed!  It was just too hot to do anything outside on Sat and Sun so we watched some Guppies and played inside.  Sunday morning surprised us with a thunderstorm, and let me tell you snuggling with a baby and listening to the rain and thunder is just heaven. Like I said, nothing fancy, crazy but it was PERFECTION! 

As you can see, she had a great time!
