all kinds of random...

i love my iphone except the typing part.  i've never had a touch screen keypad and i don't care for it all that much.  i know eventually i'll get used to it though. the only other complaint i have is that i hardly ever use my camera anymore! :(  the phone is so much more convenient to just grab and it takes pretty good pictures.  i just think my camera takes much better pics but i'm all about convenience.  the phone makes sharing pics with others a lot easier as well.  last month i had well over 400 pics of C on my camera and this month i've only got about 50 so far and those are almost all taken with my phone. i need to and want to be better about taking pictures of him with my normal camera instead of my phone camera.

i do have to say i love instagram and sharing pictures on twitter with all of you ladies. i also love looking at everyone else's pictures :)

here are some pics from my phone....




i made another wreath for my cousins....
This wreath is HUGE, I think it's the biggest one I've made and i LOVE how it turned out.  We have Christmas with my Mom's side of the family this weekend. I can't wait it's always so much fun!!

 momma's snack from trader joes...
i have to say, i hadn't been to trader joes in a LONG time but i love that place!
i plan to start going more often.
they have such a huge selection of yummy stuff that target/other grocery stores don't have.
i got all kinds of goodies i can't wait to try out!
and that corn salsa is scrumptious, i'm addicted....reminds me of the corn salsa from chipotle.

 super sweet baby C....

i don't have any pictures but i recently made a crockpot recipe i had seen floating around on twitter, cream cheese chicken, it was a hit in our house and beyond easy to make!  here is the recipe, i made a few changes....


  • lbs chicken pieces (i used 2.5 pounds of frozen chicken breasts)
  • 1 (2/3 ounce) package Italian salad dressing mix (i used the zesty mix)
  • tablespoons melted butter (divided) (i only put in 1 tbsp of butter)
  • small onion , chopped (no onion, added minced onion)
  • garlic clove , chopped (i used garlic salt)
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of chicken soup (i used low fat cream of celery)
  • ounces cream cheese (i used light cream cheese)
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth (i used bullion cube and 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup of skim milk)

Directions:


  1. 1
    Place frozen chicken pieces in crock pot and sprinkle Italian seasoning over chicken. Add everything except the cream cheese.
  2. 2
    Cook on low for 4-5 hours.
  3. 3
    Shred the chicken with two forks and add cream cheese and cook for an additional hour.

    Ha, I pretty much did everything differently from the actual recipe BUT it was still delicious and so easy to just throw everything in the crock pot.  We had it over bowtie pasta and we both had two servings and there was more than enough leftover.  It is a meal we will be making again and again! 

Tonight I'm making stuffed peppers!  I've never made them before but I've eaten them a few times and I think they are so good, I can't wait for din din.  If they are a success I'll share the recipe ;)

p.s don't forget to enter my most recent GIVEAWAY and if you haven't already shopped cullen's closet, be sure to check it out. i can't believe how much i've sold already! thanks so very much ladies!! :)

I honestly couldn't tell you the last time I used a camera to take pics! My phone is just so easy and always available! And I can't upload to FB/Twitter/ Instagram from my camera!

I am constantly using my phone for pictures. I seriously think it has been well over a year since I have taken a picture with a regular camera! Crazy right??? PS all that food looks and sounds delish AND I wish I knew if I was having a boy or not because I would so be buying C's stuff up!!!
