Hope everyone had a great (long) weekend, and made sure to remember what the holiday really was about.  We have so much to be grateful for because of our troops! A simple “thank you” will never be enough for everything you have sacrificed for us!

We really enjoyed our self this weekend with friends and family!  On Sunday night we had a group of friends come over to play games and snack on some food! The guys,  Clay and Josh,  played X-Box while the girls, Me, Jessica and Andrea  enjoyed a competitive out to get each other peaceful game of Sequence!

Then on Monday Me, Jessica and Josh spent that morning laying out by the pool and just catching some sun… A LOT OF IT!  Then that night, we did it all over again! 🙂  Played more games and had more food! This time we grilled out burgers, steaks, hot dogs, vegetables, and  potatoes! Josh did a good job of not burning anything and making everything taste yummy!

Of course this post would not be complete without a recipe, I made this one this weekend! This is one for the sweet tooth people out there (like me!)

Apple Toffee Dip


  • 1 package (8 oz)  of cream cheese, softened (If you want, you can use the low-fat, i figured, what the heck I’m going full fat for this bad boy!)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package (8 oz ish)  heath bar bits
  • Green apples & red apples cut into wedges (I also had gram crackers to dip with)


  1. In a bowl, beat cream cheese, sugars, and vanilla. Fold in the heath bar bits and serve with apples (or whatever you want)

There is a TON of sugar in this, but OMG its sooo good! If you have a sweet tooth, you are going to love this! I like it best with the green apple because the tart goes really well with the sweetness of this dip.

I know I said there will be some healthy recipes coming soon, and there will be! I am still working on making them 🙂

Hope everyone (in Texas)  got out there and voted yesterday! We did! Yeah!

Have a great short work week!
