Quick pick me up

I don't know about you all but it has been a CRAZY week for me.

It seems like every day this week I have had at least three or four things to get done or do.  Shopping, parties, babies, shopping, baking, shopping.......oh my!

Today was no different.  I had to get some more last minute shopping done.  It has been such a long week.  I decided I was going to treat myself today.

MG and I on our way to shop till we drop! (notice the bags under my eyes? Told you it has been a long week)

We had to run to Walmart so I decided to stop at Murphy USA for a quick pick me up.

Check out the price of gas!  It's finally starting to come down here!!

There were lot's of options, the prices were great as well!  I have never tried a true energy drink and since caffeine has pretty much the opposite affect on me, I decided not go the Red Bull route.  ;)

Ohh!!  Starbucks!  My fav!

I decided on the Vanilla Frap today, I usually get the Mocha but I have started to REALLY love the Vanilla.

I am so glad I stopped!  We shopped longer than I had planned, it was nice to have the extra pep in my step. 

I don't usually stop at Murphy USA, I don't know is always on my way.  I was surprised at the selection they have.  Coke, Pepsi, plus just about any kind of candy you want.  The cashier was EXTREMELY nice as well.  I told her I was going to be writing this and she promised to read it so "HI!!!!"

I took a few more pics and you can see them over at Google+.

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
