Oh boy. Where to even begin? Life has been pretty hectic lately - work, brand new cars failing, window leaks, illnesses, C+L’s upcoming styled shoot the list goes on and on...luckily I am surrounded by some pretty great people who keep me sane.
Recipe || Like Ariel, I like to make a lot of things from scratch - especially bread and pizza. We probably make them both every week. With the Super Bowl yesterday*, I wanted to make combining my three favorite things: bread, cheese, and butter. Now I know where my dog gets it….if any of the three are left out, he will find them.
I rarely go off recipes, I just see a picture, briefly look at the recipe, wing it and hope for the best. For the big game, I made a batch of our go-to pizza dough (thanks, Bobby!) and used it to make pizza bombs and pigs in a blanket. For the pizza bombs, I just stuffed little balls of dough with mozzarella and mini pepperonis. Then the pigs in a blanket, I made little strips of the pizza dough, dipped them in shredded cheddar cheese, and wrapped up a little smokie. I’m obsessed with my cast iron skillets so I put those bad boys in there and brushed them with garlic butter. Super simple, but tasty. Ugh, I wish I brought those for lunch today!
Project || I brought up my damn fireplace a few weeks ago. It’s still a work in progress, but we just hid all our TV’s cords behind the wall. If you have a mounted TV, I seriously recommend doing this. It instantly makes the room feel cleaner.
Guilty Pleasure || Catfish. Yes, that reality show where some grown man believes he is talking to Katy Perry for six years. THE Katy Perry. I just discovered this is on Hulu, you’re welcome. Thank you Nev and Max for getting me through last week.
On a similar note, can we talk about The Bachelor. It’s killing me. I’m over this ending the episode before the rose ceremony thing they keep doing. I just want to be at the episode where Corinne tries to get into Nick’s hotel room (because they showed us an intro to this week one), just because I know she has to be going home shortly thereafter. Let’s get there so we can learn more about the other woman!
Recent purchase || Mariah and I went shopping this past weekend for some C+L supplies. Shopping always escalates quickly. We got a few things for our upcoming styled shoot (SO EXCITED FOR THIS !!!!!) and got everything for a wedding day emergency kit. Keep an eye our for more information on both of these.
Song || Say You Won’t Let Go, James Arthur.
My husband and I have never had “a song.” Our first dance at our wedding was to Eric Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight, mainly because it was the song Chandler and Monica danced to after they got engaged (#friendsobsessed) and we couldn’t make up our mind. Well last week, my husband came home around 1 am - he’s a sports reporter so this is completely normal - woke me up and made me listen to this song. It’s adorable and explains our relationship perfectly. It even talks about him holding her hair back as she’s throwing up...which anyone who knows Kyle and I knows that I threw up in his lap (twice) before we even started dating. True love right there.
Cheers to making it through Monday,
*Can we talk about how Lady Gaga SLAYED?! Seriously amazing. Although, whenever she was flying around, all I was think about was how Pink did that first…sorries.
