Saw it, Pinned it, Did it: Ranch Dip

Original

Mine

Very delicous, truly you can't tell the difference. Used plain greek yogurt, and one packet of Hidden Valley ranch dry mix, and voila! I can't stress enough how delicious it was. Fewer calories, and better for you I feel.


*I also must wish my incredible parents a very happy 32nd wedding anniversary!*

I'll Never Be...

 
   This post is inspired by this Carrie Bradshaw quote: "I know I’ll never be the girl with the perfect hair, or be able to wear white without spilling anything on it, but that’s okay.” Someone in the blog world asked the simple question "Why do you blog?", and it got me thinking. Do I wish I were as cool as Carrie Bradshaw? That's a hell yes. But, I didn't ever begin to blog because of her. I am not that eloquent. My posts are sporadic. My passion for writing doesn't run that deep. To be honest I prefer writing poetry but who wants to read a blog about someones poetry? I blog to escape, heal, and record my feelings. Thus, a tailspin went on in my brain and I realized some things that I will never be. First, I will never be the outfit of the day girl, I will never have a spotless or perfect home (and I am one hundred percent ok with that), I will never not worry about my purchases, I will never have it all together, and I will never look like I did in high school. Also, I'll never be the wife who cooks dinner for her husband every night, the decorator who has everything perfectly matching, or the girl who looks perfectly put together at all times. It's taken me nearly thirty years to realize that I am who I am and I'm ok with that. I'm not perfect.
  I will however, always be the girl who puts Christ first, the woman that loves with all of her heart, the giver of her family, and the girl who tries her best to be happy in any given situation. All I can ask for is His mercy and grace in all that I do and am.

  Are you struggling with whom you might never become?

Weekend Shenanigans





Friday night began with my daily FaceTime with my niece Riley. She learned something new, how to blow her nose and it was freaking adorable! After she showed me that she could she couldn't stop! Thus the night was already a huge success. Blake was on the grill getting the veggies started, we were having family over for some dinner and fun. Before everyone got there, Blake and I had a little goofy photo shoot in the bathroom while getting ready. I decided that I had dressed like an Indian Princess and took some instagram worthy pics. Birdie (our morkie) was outside gathering pecans which I assume was her contribution to the party. You'll also see a picture of my handsome brother, Garren, and his lovely girlfriend, Claire. I can't get enough of my family so anytime they come over I want to keep them there forever.

Saturday was spent watching movies and vegging out on the couch which is nothing new for us. We needed to catch up on our rest as much as we could because of the previous weekend.

Sunday was about the same as Saturday except we watched the Oscars Academy Awards. I personally thought it was lame and boring. Anne Hathaway was my worst dressed, can we say nipples? I don't think I had a best dressed, I wasn't impressed. Maybe Brandi Glanville, I don't know.

My InstaLife


FaceTime with Anna banana!

Lunch with my little brother, James. Mmm, Bums is the best.


A little throwback action for you. That's James, again, pictured in front, smiling even though we are all crying because our oldest sister, Elizabeth, was leaving for college in Virginia.


My little frups (minus Daisy) with whom I cuddled with while sick.

I finally got to meet sweet little Baby H.

Sweet Riley during one of our FaceTime sessions.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend as much as I am. I scheduled this post so hopefully I am still asleep.
