I just wanted to say 'Hi!'

Gosh I have been busy these past few weeks!  I feel like I have been neglecting you guys!

So....what is new with me?

Well, I got a new camera!  Oh my gosh!  I LOVE it!  I got the Sony Alpha Nex3, it is AMAZING!  The camera is SO light and the pictures are just WOW!

I am still learning how it works but I am getting better!

Sorry, I went a bit overboard on editing but I still LOVE it!

Hmmm...over the weekend we went to visit my mom and dad and also went to visit my grandparents.  We took the girls to a little park and let them play for a bit...then someone found a snake.  Yeah, I was totally done at that point!  HAHA!

Sunday was church.  Monday I did laundry.  And MORE laundry.  And even MORE laundry.  I seriously think I did 5-8 loads and folded about 20 loads!  I am not even kidding you!  We have 3 bags to donate and even more laundry to do.  Sorry, not even going to show you a pic of THAT mess.

Yesterday I did a few more loads of laundry, finished a cake and took it to the church for a funeral dinner, came home and got ready to take Mads to dance.

Tonight is church and in a bit I have more cleaning to do.  I also have some FUN posts lined up for Thursday and Friday so stay tuned for those.  Saturday we are going to an Easter Egg hunt (seems SO early for that) and Sunday is church.  OH!  Friday I have a coupon swap!  WooHoo! 

So after this busy week what does next week look like?  Pretty much the same plus adding Easter in and getting ready for MG's birthday.  Life rarely slows down around here and is actually a lot busier most of the time.  When it does slow down I seriously have no idea what to do with myself.

I hope you all are having a great week!

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
