Ritz Crunch Cookies

So the good news is, we already know that Ritz crackers taste good in desserts.  I mean, I kinda always knew that because have you ever bitten a Ritz cracker and then immediate tossed a few chocolate chips into your mouth?  

.....Yeah, me either.  

But I would "assume" it tastes pretty damn good.  If I had to guess.

Day in the life: Photo an hour (ish)

I've seen a few bloggers do a "Photo an Hour" post and I'm always FASCINATED to spend a day in the life of someone else.  I'd been planning on doing one of these posts for months but always forgot to start snapping pics until noon which makes the whole point moot. (Am I using moot right?)  Finally I got my act together to document a normal Saturday.  Have a perusal, will you?  

All pics are taken from my iPhone.  

This is my cocoon.

6 Things Making Me Happy This Week

Oh hey I got a new blog design!  The mood struck last week and 2 hours later, I had me a new blog.  That will likely happen in another 3 months when I decide I hate my current design again.  I'm smart like that.  

1.  The thing is, I don't think these are even the most ridiculous ones.  

2.  Ya know what, I'm into this.  I've been considering a new ear piercing lately or even my nose pierced (...again) but is 30 too old for that sorta thing?  I've got about 2 more months of my twenties left in me so it just feels like now or never!  

3.  This is my ddrreeaaaaammmmm.   I once worked at a salon that mixed its own lipglosses and I did not truly appreciate the magic at my fingertips at the time.  Youth it wasted on the young!  

4.  I was just telling the hubs the other day that I want to make a big batch of fudge to keep in the freezer for some sneaky snacking every now and then.  I mean, it's unlikely to look as beautiful as this but a girl can try.  

5.  I'd like to add one thing to this list: "All bugs extinct forever guaranteed" and Eric's would be "Allergies are no longer a thing anymore" 

6.  Well hey, that's pretty easy huh?  

What's making you happy this week?

Let's Relax

Ladies (and gentleman if you're out there!), let's relax shall we?  

I think everyone has their own way to relax.  Some people want a long bath.  Some people curl up with a book.  Some people even go for a long run.  I'll let you guess which one I don't particularly subscribe to.....

So here's a few methods that I employ on the regular to unwind and relax when I'm feeling a bit harried.
