Hunger Games

Well last night I did something I NEVER do. I stayed out til 3:30. On a week night no less!
 ...To see the midnight showing of Hunger Games. So right now im running on 3 hours of sleep and no coffee. How am I still awake you might ask? Well... I have no idea. Im feeling a crash comin on strong and quick.

So was it worth it? Im still trying to figure it out. I liked the movie but ... I feel like I should see it one more time when I am more aware. And this time I'll try to watch it as just a movie instead of one of my favorite books.

Anyways have a good weekend and go judge Hunger Games for your self!

Okay, I found this recipe on Pinterest and I had to post it!
It looks delicious and pretty easy to make.

Here is the recipe. I'll be making it soon and update everyone on how good it is.
I might even try this recipe with fried pickles some time.. that dipping sauce would be delicious!

Oh man oh man is it rainy. And all i want to do is curl up on the sofa, finish reading the third hunger games book, and bake a load of goodies! But instead I will be at work til 6. Although I do get to have a fun little date with this cute little man!

Also, can we talk about how much we love this site for cute affordable shoes?

AVEDA Botanical Kinetics

By far the best skin care product I have found. And not horribly expensive. For years I was on Proactive because of a few zits... really nothing to get worked up about but when all your other friends have perfect skin... you do what you can. Then about a year ago I got my first facial at E.J. Bain. They told me about how proactive has bleach in it and can destroy your skin. So i switched to Aveda. It took my skin a while to get used to it but honestly I don't think I will ever use anything else.
This exfolient is the best thing that has ever happened to my skin. Its a liquid exfolient that isn't a scrub! You leave it on over night and your face will feel as smooth as a babys bottom. Serisouly wonderful!

Also check out A Cup of Jo. Cute shoes.

Lazy Sundays

Happy Sunday all!

My Sundays have always been filled with family, friends, and food so I thought I would share a few of my (and my families) favorite recipes. 
This first recipe is the best sour cream enchiladas you will ever eat! And the easiest too! I found this recipe on Pinterest and then had the best time looking through all her delicious recipes on her blog.  

Simple Sour Cream Enchiladas
4 chicken breasts, fully cooked & shredded
2 dozen white corn tortillas
1 16 oz. can green enchilada sauce
2 ounces additional green chiles
14 oz. sour cream
4 cups shredded cheese (Jack or Mexican blend)
Mix all ingredients together, reserving 1.5 cup cheese, 2 ounces green chile sauce, and 3 ounces sour cream for topping.  Heat corn tortillas 4 or 5 at a time in microwave on high for 30 seconds, then spoon 3 tablespoons of the mixture into the heated tortillas.  (Heating them helps avoid cracking when you roll them up!)
Spray a large Pyrex or glass dish with cooking spray (you may need an extra dish), then align enchiladas in a row inside.  Blend remaining sour cream and green chile sauce together and spoon over enchiladas.  Top with remaining shredded cheese.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake in oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. 
  Makes 20-24 enchiladas.
Like I said, so easy and so delicious! 

This next desert is my families favorite. Always demanded and gone in 60 seconds. Unfortunately its not the healthiest.. or even close but its too yummy to ignore. One of my friends told me about it first and then i found the recipe again on Pinterest.
