Hey Everyone,

I thought I'd share today about one of my newest Blog friends, Kala over at My Breezy Room. I "met" her (well virtually lol) during a giveaway on her page for an Urban Stamp Set that I won! It's very cool and I can't wait to use it for some awesome projects :) Kala has an online party going on now through the end of the Month with the company that the stamp set is through, Close to my Heart. Slip on over to her page and check it out, you wont be disappointed! Here is a picture of the stuff you can expect to see!

BLT Egg Salad

Hey everyone! Sorry it's been awhile since I posted. I have been busy with school and this weekend was my hubby's birthday so I didn't want to take away from his time. Everyone give him a birthday shout out in the comments below, he turned 27 on 3/24!

Today I have an easy recipe that can be used in a variety of settings. I made it one night when I was cooking dinner and we had it as a side dish but it could also be easily used as an afternoon snack or an appetizer at a party. The possibilities are endless! I adapted this recipe from this website, Mark's Daily Apple. :)

This dish is simple and quick! Not to mention it's a great thing to make after you get done dying your Easter eggs this weekend!

-1 Avocado
-1 Tomato
-2 Hard boiled Eggs (Boil eggs for 10 min to hard boil)
-4-6 strips of Bacon ( I used turkey bacon, but regular bacon will work just as well!)
-Salt and pepper to taste

To start off, cook your bacon strips until they are at your desired crispy-ness. We like ours right in the middle of chewy and crispy which takes about 5 minutes with turkey bacon. Regular bacon will take a few minutes longer because it is thicker.

Next cut up you avocado, tomatoes, eggs, and bacon and mix it together. You can leave the yellow part of your egg in or take it out, it's up to you. I salt and peppered each layer as I went along but you can wait until the end if you would like.

Seriously, this recipe is that easy..... and it's good! The official taste tester doesn't even like tomatoes and he ate this stuff right up. There is something about the avocado goodness that is just irresistible I guess! Who loves avocados as much as I do? AND lets face, everything is better with bacon.

Here is a picture of your final product:

Don't let your drool get on your keyboard.

Happy Cooking everyone!!

St. Patrick's Day Green Beer

With St. Patrick's Day coming up this weekend, I thought I'd share a lovely little "recipe" with you! Now, I'm not Irish, BUT I love a St. Patty's Day celebration as much as the next girl. I've always thought it was so cool how bars serve green beer, I just never knew how easy it is!

3-5 drops of green food coloring
1 can or bottle of your favorite beer

As most beer is, this is ALWAYS better in a frosty mug so if you have a mug on hand, stick that sucker in the freezer!

There is really only one trick to doing this: pour the food coloring in first. If you put the beer in first you will end up stirring your beer to mix in the food coloring... which will make it flat. Flat beer is gross PURE DISGUSTING. Just drop your food coloring into your mug and then pour in your beer (at an angle so it doesn't get foamy!!).

It doesn't matter if you use light or dark beer, you will just have to use more food coloring for darker beers. I used Leinenkugel's Lemon Berry Shandy since it's pretty much the best beer I have ever had. Seriously, you should try some ASAP. I think it's a Polish beer so if you want to be a little more authentic, you should probably use something Irish (but it's my fav!!!). I also did one with Miller Lite, they both looked the same.

Anyways, here is a picture of your final product.

I didn't have a real mug so I used the one I have from when I visited Harry Potter World at Universal Studios in Florida (hints, the ButterBeer logo). I felt VERY grown up drinking beer out of a Harry Potter cup. :)

These would be great to make at your St. Patty's Day party!

Have a safe and fun St. Patty's Day Celebration!!!

EASY DIY Home Decor

Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is enjoying their week.... and looking forward to Spring Break for those of you involved in the school system (**Happy Dance**).

Today I'm going to share with you a project that is SO EASY. It's seriously 3 steps. I saw this on Pinterest at one time but I have no idea where the original pin came from. If you know, let me know so I can give credit!

Some things you know about me:
1. I love to monogram everything/ put my new initial everywhere
2. I love the color green (see my wedding)
3. I love projects that are easy

SO with those three things in mind, let me introduce you to the easiest project ever.

-Wooden Initial
-Wooden Frame
-Spray Paint

Remember how I said this project had three steps?
1. Buy your supplies
2. Paint your letter and frame
3. Hang it on your wall.

I guess technically you could say buying your supplies is multiple steps because I got my letter from Hobby Lobby and the frame from Micheals..... but thats just a technicaility.

You don't have to go get an expensive pretty frame. Almost anything looks good with a little spray paint on it. I think the frame I used was $2-3.

I didn't include any step by step instructions because I didn't think it was really necessary. Here are some pictures after the painting.

And the final product on my wall. Sorry the pictures are dark, I took them at night!

Isn't that cute?

Happy Crafting!!
