In My Dreams

Do you ever think about what you would wear if you were given the opportunity to attend a huge event like the Oscars? Anyone? No, just me? Ok then!

Well, I decided I wanted to put together a dream outfit of what I would wear if I were going to the Oscars tonight. Of course, in reality I will just be snuggled up in my jammies watching on TV, probably eating a donut or something.

I searched Polyvore.com for the perfect ensemble and this, my friends is what I would wear...

Oscars

Stiletto high heel shoes
$63 - spylovebuy.com

Forever new
$41 - forevernew.com.au


The dress - I love. The shoes - I DIE!

So, tell me (or better yet, show me!) what would you wear if you were going to the Oscars?!

and this is us SOBER!


My BFF and I have these conversations on IM. You know the ones where you are just totally free to be yourselves and not worry about other people hearing you and getting offended...or little ears listening in to mommy's converstations. Those kind. Like the one I'm sharing now. This is an everyday thing for us. If we didn't have each other I don't know how we'd get through most days as SAHM's! And yes, this is both of us stone sober.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

You guys. I don't know if I've ever told you about my love affair. I admit it, I have been having an on-going love affair with Frank....Frank's Red Hot Sauce! Yes, my husband knows all about my affair and he is totes ok with it. You didn't really think I'd cheat on my hubby did you?! I'm surprised at y'all!

So seriously though, I love Frank's Red Hot and I will use it on just about anything. Scrambled eggs? You betcha! Dip your quesadilla in it, heck yes! Slather your chicken with FRH? Yes please!

I don't know about you, but when I'm hungry and don't know what I'm in the mood for I will hop on Pinterest for a little inspiration. The other night I knew I wanted pizza but really wasn't in the mood for the old standby of pepperoni. I hopped on Pinterest and found this



Uh, YUM! So I looked in the fridge and saw that I had chicken breast, FRH, ranch and mozzarella. We make our pizza crust at home so I knew I had what I needed to make the dough. After deciding this was exactly what I was looking for I thought, what do you always get when you get wings at a restaurant? You get blue cheese! Why in the world was that not already included in this recipe?! I ran to the store and grabbed some blue cheese and then spent the next few hours watching the clock waiting until it was late enough to make dinner ;)

Hubby is fantastic and always makes the pizza dough for me. See, we have a little arrangement. He makes the dough and forms it and puts it on the pizza pans and then I build the pizzas from there. This works for me. I don't get covered in flour and he gets to flex his muscles with the rolling pin. That sounds like a win-win to me ifyouknowwhatimsayin' ;)

Anyhoo, so after he got the pizzas ready for me to build I did one pepperoni for Hannah and the other buffalo chicken for us. Can I just say how amazingly delicious this pizza turned out? OMG. I'm salivating just thinking about it now. lol



So, here is what I did - I mainly used that recipe from Pinterest as a guide but didn't follow exact measurements and of course added my own twist by adding the blue cheese.

Recipe:

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Sauce
1/2 cup ranch dressing (the creamier the better)
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles

1. pre-cook chicken breast in a little extra virgin olive oil. when it's rested a few minutes thinly slice it and then give it a rough chop to make more bite size pieces.
2. place chopped chicken in a bowl with your cup of FRH and coat evenly. put it to the side.
3. spread the ranch dressing all over your dough, this will be your base.
4. spoon your chicken evenly over your pizza and cover with any extra FRH (optional)
5. sprinkle mozzarella over whole pizza
6. sprinkle blue cheese over whole pizza
7. bake at 500° for about 13-15 minutes

This, my friends is what you will see when you take it out of the oven. This is by far my favorite pizza I've had in a really long time! I hope you make this and love it as much as I do!

Hair Help STAT!

I am at my wits end y'all. I am in desperate need of a new hairdo but here's the skinny - I can't do a lot of trendy styles because I have naturally curly hair. I am not going to spend an hour or more a day blowing out or using a flat iron to straighten my hair and I don't want to cut any length off. I am considering long bangs and also some long layers to help give my hair some life. Right now it just hangs all at one length which makes it really dull and I just end up pulling it up into a pony or a bun.


This is what I'm working with now. I want to continue to grow out my length, but I have to do something so I'm not just wearing it up all the dang time. That's so boring and I'm over it. So, now I need your help! Suggestions? Ideas?


I really really love this style, but again I don't have the time or the inclination to curl/straighten/blow out to achieve a look like this every day. There are some days I just need a really easy wash and go style that won't frizz out and look dumb! lol

Or do I just go for something like this that doesn't require much change from what I currently have and wouldn't take much time each day to style...


So, whatcha think? Bangs or no? Long layers or no? Help a sista out would ya?!

Oh and we'll talk about my grey's and coloring next time, m'kay pumpkins?! ;)

My Life on Instagram

So lately things have been a bit intense. As in, I was sick from like November up til about a week ago! I have had a cold, double ear infection, strep, another cold, the flu. It's been ridiculous! So, now that I'm feeling better I thought I'd update on what's been going on around here since I've been feeling better.

I am giving #fmsphotoaday another go for February as well as just the random everyday stuff going on in my life....
