Catching Up With High Five for Friday

I haven't linked up with Lauren @ From My Grey Desk Blog in a while for High Five For Friday so let's do that, shall we?


1.  Chocolate Chip Cookie S'mores-To Die For

Have you seen this recipe floating around Pinterest?  I made them a couple weekends ago when we went up to yet another friend's lake house for the weekend and they were a HUGE hit.  There were actually random people from around the lake coming over to try them.  Okay, fine.  They were random to me because I was a guest there and I'm sure said people were actual friends of our hosts- but still.  They were there for S'mores and definitely not the free keg of beer, I promise you that. It's a chocolate chip cookie with mini marshmallows baked on top of a graham cracker with a bar of chocolate baked into the top of that. Heaven.   The original recipe came from The Girl Who Ate Everything.  Go check it out and make these immediately.  




2.  This sign completely cracked me up!
  

{Sorry for the naughty words-are you over it yet?}.  The lake house we were at belongs to the parents of a dear friend of ours.  Our group of friends spent many crazy weekends up there before we all had children and turned into seemingly responsible adults.  This weekend was the first weekend we were all back in a loooong time but this time everyone brought their kids. 

{Things actually did get just as crazy if not more crazy than ever right around 2 am when the babes were sound asleep but that's another story for another time...I will say this: I may be a soccer mom and I may have crossed over into the abyss of my late thirties, but I kick ass at Flip Cup.  Seriously.  If you are a college kid entering a Flip Cup tournament and need yourself an anchor, let me know. I'm kind of a big deal when it comes to this past time.  Trust me.}  

Our friend's dad left this for us on the mantle.....it's funny cause it's true. 


 


3.  I Love This Photo!


One last high from the lake weekend.  I snapped this early in the morning...I think it's one of the best pictures I've ever taken and I can't wait to get it blown up into a canvas.  It's the three loves of my life relaxing in a hammock by the lake.  I love that I captured such a tender/candid moment between the three of them.  My heart literally bursts when I look at it.
 


4. Supreme Pizza Pasta-Stealth Mama Style


This is a great kid friendly dish I made the other day (I'll post the full recipe later this week).  It's an adaptation of a recipe I found a long time ago.  I jacked it up with tons of fresh diced veggies unbeknown to my unsuspecting family.  They gobbled it up and got like 2 servings each of vegetables in the process, including organic zucchini from the farmer's market!  


For the record I loathe people who feel the need to add the adjective "organic" in front of every food they make/eat/think about just to sound cool and prove to the world that they're all earthy and health conscious. I always feel like shouting: " Ugh!  I get it.  You're better then me.  You only buy organic and your kids have never had a Cheeto. For the love of God, shut up! I'm trying to eat this Twinkie and you're really ruining the experience for me!" 


That being said, I do get all tingly and happy watching my kids and husband eat a healthy meal I made them.  And if I can have the secret satisfaction of knowing I totally tricked them into doing it, all the better.  Also, I hate it when people say "that being said..." and I just did it.  Damn it.  I had a professor in grad school who made me insane and she used that phrase constantly, so subsequently, my skin crawls when I hear it.  But that has nothing to do with anything.  Let's move on.


5.  Changes are coming to FUMC!!

I decided it was time to hunker down and get serious about this blogging thing and get myself a big girl blog.  I've enlisted the help of the lovely Kristen @ From Kristen, With Love to redesign this space of mine.  I know she's going to make it fabulous!  The new design should be live by the end of next week so come back soon and check it out!   Click on Kristen's button below if you want to check out her portfolio!


From Kristen, With Love
 That's it for now my lovelies!  Have a wonderful weekend!



xoxo,
