Monster Munch

If you are on a diet, you may not like me after this post! I found this recipe over at Plain Chicken. She has lots of yummy recipes, but beware she is an Auburn fan! haha! I’m just kidding! Sorta.

This is definitely a fun and easy recipe for any Halloween bash..or you can hog it for yourself. Whichever strikes your fancy!

You’ll need:

1 package Almond Bark(white)

2 bags of microwave popcorn, popped

1 cup of Candy Corn(and I don’t even like Candy Corn!)

1 1/2 cups of dry roasted, salted peanuts

1 cup Reese’s Pieces

Place your popcorn in a large bowl….like super big. I ended up having to split mine up because my bowl was not big enough! Pour the peanuts, candy corn and Reese’s Pieces on top.  DSC_1586Get some help from Reece Piece! Yes, that’s ketchup on the end of her nose. Yes, she was dipping her popcorn in ketchup. Yuck!DSC_1588

Melt the Almond Bark according to the directions on the package and pour over the popcorn mixture. Mix it all up really well and spread it out on wax paper. Give it a little time to harden and then break it up and EAT!!! DSC_1593 xoxo,

Pumpkin Carving Fun!

Sometime last week we carved our pumpkins that we got at the pumpkin patch! So fun and SO MESSY! Yuck.

I think Reece may have stuck her hand in her pumpkin one time…and I don’t blame her! That’s definitely a boys job!

DSC_1569 DSC_1568Pumpkin carving King!! He carved all the pumpkins while I baked seeds.DSC_1575 That was my first time to cook the seeds…not so sure about that. Griffin ate most of them.

And the final product!DSC_1582 I have a whole lotta recipes I need to quit withholding from y’all! As soon as I have a half a second I promise to post them!

Car Show

On Sunday Josh and the boys headed up to Nashville for a car show. Other than having to get up super early to drive up there I think they had a fun time!




They took TONS of pictures of cars but I’ll just post the favorite!


I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! I hope to get our Christmas card pictures taken! :)

Roll Tide!

Critter Creek Pumpkin Patch!

I heart weekends! Especially now that Josh is off on the weekend! I’m trying not to get too attached to it because I know it’s short lived and will be gone soon. :(

On Saturday we went with my sister, Brad and Noah to the Critter Creek Farm. We had so much fun! We fed and got to pet the mini horses, alpaca, goats, sheep, reindeer, chickens, a turkey, a fawn and we even got to feed a couple calves bottles! They also have a few no pet animals…bears, a cougar, an arctic fox(stunk SO bad, worse than a skunk!), lynx, raccoons..I think that’s all.

After playing with all the animals we took a hayride down to the pumpkin patch where we all picked out our perfect pumpkins! Then we got temporary tattoos, played on the playground, played with the animals one more time and headed back home! Josh and I had just as much fun as the kids! I love places like that where the kids just run free! OH oh oh…Reece had to potty while we were there, so on the way to take her to the bathroom I asked the boys if they needed to go. Griffin said, “Oh, well I had to go a few minutes ago so I just went behind that tree over there!” bhahahahaha! “What?!?! Really?!?!” The owner was standing right beside us and just laughed hysterically! I wanted to crawl under a rock! Oh well, boys will be boys!

DSC_1384 DSC_1277 DSC_1278 DSC_1283 I can’t wait to move to the country so that we can have goats! That’s a random fact you didn’t know about me! I was actually feeding the one eared sheep here though…DSC_1292 You see that pipe? You could send cheerios down to the bears in it. Now, look at the end of the pipe…he’s blocking the hole so the other bear can’t get any!DSC_1294 The other bear was sad. Guess she wanted cheerios!DSC_1295 DSC_1296 DSC_1300 DSC_1302 DSC_1309 DSC_1312 DSC_1314 DSC_1323 DSC_1327 DSC_1329 DSC_1333 DSC_1336 DSC_1339 DSC_1343 Favorite recent pic of these two little birds!!!!DSC_1344 Caught him sucking his thumb!!!DSC_1345 DSC_1351 Noah loves his Uncle Josh!DSC_1356 Sweet boys!DSC_1367 DSC_1369 Reece said, “Mommy, you to big fo dis!”DSC_1374 This lynx….he had a MAJOR attitude! The owner told Josh that his name is BK…last part stands for Kitty, you figure out the rest! Freakity.DSC_1381 I heart them!DSC_1383 Do you think it’s evident enough that if you don’t wear your pumpkin garb to the pumpkin patch you MUST wear your gameday attire? Just wondering.

Roll Tide!

Happy 8th Birthday Griffin!

Is my baby boy really 8??!! Gosh, time flies so fast. I love birthdays, but I hate that my babies have to turn a year older to have one! haha!

It’s fun to think back to what Josh and I were doing eight years ago right now! And last night we were thinking that eight years ago we had NO clue what was about to happen! Here’s the story in case you missed it!(I’m gonna have to find it and post it later, check back!)

Griffin’s party was a hit! The kids had so much fun! They were on the move the entire party and we had to bribe them to slow down long enough to open presents and eat cake!
