Ever since saying that I was coming back I haven’t been able to work on the blog at all! Of course the charger for my laptop would break as soon as I decide to come back & I’ve been working crazy hours at work and haven’t been able to bring it in to get fixed.
The weekend of my birthday we went to Boston for the dessert expo and I was super excited because the website made it seem amazing, plus it touted the world’s largest s’mores bar. In my head I was picturing macarons, cupcakes and all kinds of toppings I could include on my s’mores. Unfortunately it took us longer to drive there then it did to walk around the expo. And the s’mores bar had one bowl of graham crackers and chocolate. We also paid for valet parking so we were really disappointed, we were hoping to turn the day around and go over to lawn on D which was right outside the expo but it was closed for the day for a private event. We weren’t the only people disappointed in the expo and I would advise anyone thinking of going next year to steer clear as it was a total waste of money and time.
Even though we were disappointed in the s’mores bar at the expo I do have a great s’mores fudge recipe to share that is perfect for anyone who can’t sit around a campfire roasting their marshmallows to perfection.
- Graham crackers
- Chocolate chips 1 bag
- White chocolate chips 1 bag
- Sweetened condensed milk 14 ounce can
- Marshmallow Fluff ½ cup
- Vanilla extract ½ teaspoon
- First line your pyrex dish with wax paper and then put down the sheets of graham crackers, this will be your base.
- Melt the chocolate chips in small saucepan, once melted add half the sweetened condensed milk as well as the vanilla.
- Once chocolate is smooth, pour over the graham cracker crust.
- Next melt the white chocolate chips, once melted add the rest of the sweetened condensed milk and the marshmallow fluff.
- Once this is smooth pour over the hardened chocolate layer.
- Let this set in the fridge overnight and then cut into pieces for everyone to enjoy!
It’s been a little over a year since I last posted here, and my how life has changed! I never intended to leave the blogging world, but then life happens and you get so caught up in it that you forget to sit down and post it all. To write down everything that has happened since I last posted would take forever so I’m going to give you a quick recap:
- moved into my new house
- got divorced
- sold my new house
- started living my life for me
- started dating a great guy
- got a new apartment
Obviously that’s a lot for a little over a year, but somehow I’ve managed to survive and even live a better life than before. I’ve missed blogging terribly and have even had several people ask me when I was going to start posting again, but the timing never felt right. I made a promise to myself that I would only do things that I really wanted to do and that I really enjoyed so I decided that I would only come back to blogging when it felt right to me.
The other day I got an email from a fairly well known yogurt company asking me to create a blog post using their yogurt in one of my recipes and it made me realize that I needed to get back to what I love doing. On top of that I hadn’t really been baking or crafting since I moved, but then recently I started getting back into the things I loved and that I normally posted about. This, combined with the email from the company, and the constant support from my followers really pushed me to come back to blogging.
So bare with me while I get back into the swing of things, and while I spruce up the blog! I’m so glad to be back and thank everyone that waited for me to come back and also checked on while I was away.
I confess that we move Friday and I am still packing!
Also I have not been to crossfit since Saturday because I have been crazy trying to finish packing and I am seriously just so exhausted by everything going on that I feel like I haven’t slept in months.
I am getting a little sad to be leaving, we’ve been here for 5 years and put a lot into the house.
But I am super excited to be in my house and do whatever I want!
I confess that I was a little bit excited to be home while it was still light out so I could record a little house tour of our current house before we move out. It’s probably much smaller than you’d expect, but somehow we made it work.
This weekend went by way too fast! I need a day to recover from everything. Friday I went to crossfit after work and then decided to come home and start packing as much as I could, but got sucked into a movie once dinner was ready. We went to bed around 2 am and had to be up and at crossfit by 9 am the next morning.
Saturday we went and worked out in the morning which sucked because my knee was being miserable and locking up when I was trying to do things during the workouts. Then I headed home got changed and went to Goodwill to drop off bags of clothes from packing. I never realized how much I had that I never wear or that doesn’t fit me anymore, I’m ashamed to say that a lot of it still had tags on it. Then I picked up my friend and we headed to the mall, I had to exchange a bra at VS and ended up picking up a sports bra from there clearance which honestly still wasn’t very cheap. I also had to pick up all my supplies to make the wedding dress cupcake dress. Then it was home for the rest of the night to make 60 cupcakes.
Sunday I woke up early to frost all of the cupcakes and then headed to my friends mothers house to throw her bridal shower. The shower went perfectly and we couldn’t of asked for a better day. I ran around all day and my feet were killing me by the time I got home. Thankfully Mr. H packed a lot while I was at the shower, but of course he packed things he wasn’t supposed to. We made dinner and then decided to go for a boat ride with my dad and his girlfriend. I get a little sad thinking about how we won’t be able to just walk down to the lake and hop on the boat, but in reality we are only 1 minute down the road and can just drive over whenever we want. I planned on packing more last night, but was so exhausted that I passed out by 9pm.
This week I need to pack everything because we have the final walk through Thursday and then closing Friday and we both took Friday off to start moving everything as soon as we get the keys. I hope everyone has a great week & hopefully I can make one more post before the move!
It’s time for Friday Favorites and I am so excited for this one because I have a huge reveal!
I resisted the Iggy Azalea fan club for as long as I could and then I downloaded her album and fell in love.
Favorite moment this week:
I went to a new hairdresser yesterday, I work out with her. Initially I said let’s take it slow with my hair, but then I got there and we said fuck it and bleached my entire head. I am now little mermaid red and I couldn’t be happier. I am amazed at how soft my hair feels considering what I just put it through.
Least favorite moment this week:
If you follow me on Instagram you’ve already seen this, but during an intense workout I fell on the last set of 10 box jumps and seriously scraped up my arms as well as some nice bruising on both arms. I had to try so hard to not cry, but thankfully I kept it together and we finished the workout.
I found this one someone’s twitter this week and found it very interesting. I have never really been into astrology or any of that, but found this pretty accurate for myself. I’m a Virgo btw!
I know that I shouldn’t really be posting about something that hasn’t happened yet because it may be a disaster, but I have a bridal shower this weekend and I am making a wedding dress cupcake cake! I’m super nervous that it’s going to come out like shit, but also excited to see if I can pull it off.
It’s time for my humpday confessions!
I was a little disappointed with this season of Orange is the new Black, although I did really like them showing the girls before they went to prison.
I wish I liked wine so then I could say I need to go home and relax with a bottle of wine. But then I would be drinking my calories away so I guess it’s a good thing I don’t. But I can’t make any cool projects out of wine corks.
My phone has been dying around noon every day and I’ve basically been bitching about it nonstop for months, well dumbass me just realized that an app I downloaded months ago is constantly running in the background tracking my steps. Here I was trying to figure out how I could trick someone into buying me a new phone!
I get at least one email a day at work that I just want to respond like this. Also Ari Gold is my spirit animal.
And last but not least, I confess that I started this post last week and then just never posted it because I didn’t have enough to confess and I also didn’t have time to search for gifs, which really is the most time consuming part of my posts.
Saturday I started my morning off with a couple a workouts that I had missed during the week thanks to the little stomach bug that I had caught. Then I spent the rest of the day packing and cleaning the house while Mr. H worked. When he got home we filled the hot tub to see if it still worked and we could take it with us to the new house, but unfortunately it didn’t. We headed out to a graduation party at a friends house for the rest of the night.
Sunday I woke up around 8:30 and went food shopping & when I got back my dad was mowing the front lawn. I told him I would mow the backyard and he went to go pick up the rest of his hammock he got as a gift for father’s day. When he got back, I helped him plant in his new divider then we grilled steak tips and corn for lunch and headed out on the boat. We fished and hung out on the lake for 3 hours and got a great tan. I ended the night with more packing. This feels like the project that is never going to end!
I have so much coming up this week and honestly up until the move that I don’t know when I will have time to update again. I have been scrambling to try and stay on some kind of schedule and clearly it is not working out very well for me. I am sorry and once we are moved and settled I should be back to normal as well as finally have some new recipes!
