Well, it's that time again....

 
My baby of my two babies will be 2 soon, REALLY soon.....this weekend soon!  We have decided to have a Red, Black and White Mickey Mouse themed party.  Sorry, I have this thing against bright obnoxious primary colors.  When I see those colors together it is like nails on a chalkboard.  So I have opted for red, black and white.

We are also going to be telling the girls about our Disney trip.  WooHoo!!  Can't wait to get THAT cat out of the bag!  You know I will let you know how it goes, may even get a pic or two or even a video of it.

No party is complete without some sort of cake.  I have been going back and forth for a month 3 months about the cake.  UGH!  I was first going to do cake pops in the shape of Mickey's head (then quickly came back to reality)!  Then I was going to have my VERY talented friend Kandi make it but she is on a much needed and deserved vaca this week.  So today, 5 days before the party, I have decided what I am going to do!

Growing up when we went to Freddie's I would ALWAYS order a Shirley Temple.  We now order them for the girls when we go somewhere special and fun.  There is a reason I am telling you this....give me a second....

I was searching one of my FAVORITE food bloggers, I just KNEW she would have SOMETHING, and found it!!!

Isn't that CUTE??

Guess what it is??  Well, those of you that are my FB friends already know the answer but for those that aren't and don't.......


OMG!  I can not wait to make them!  How fun!  Her recipe calls for a homemade Grenadine that I also plan to make.  This should be fun!  I will of course let you know about the outcome next week, once I de-stress!

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
