Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Turkey Day!

This year I have been obsessed with turkeys. These two guys are so cute in my living room!
I am a little sad to put them away soon...

I hope everyone has a wonderful day filled with family, friends, food, and thanksgiving. 
There is so much to be thankful for in my life-my wonderful husband, family, friends, church, job and the list could go on and on. I am a blessed young woman.

Have a happy thanksgiving everyone!!!!

Game Day Munchies

To be perfectly honest I am not a cook and have never really cared anything about cooking. Most people are surprised to learn that I can barely boil water! This is even more tragic considering the wonderful role model I grew up with.  My mom can make something out of nothing in the blink of an eye AND it will taste like the best thing you ever put in your mouth.  Not me though.  Sorry mommy!  Last weekend, however, I had an unusual desire to "attempt" to make some game day dishes for me and the hubs to munch on during the Alabama game. Should I mention my hubs was shocked to say the least? He is such a good sport and very encouraging. Bless him!

Okay, ya'll don't laugh as I share my "creations." A girl has to start somewhere!

A blackbean salsa.
I apologize for the poor presentation. Jeremy had already eaten half of it before I could take a pic.

My next creation was a taco dip.
This was actually really good! It is a hot cheesy dip served with fritos scoops!

I also made warm ham and cheese sandwiches.
These were also yummy.

To finish up the evening we had double dutch hot chocolate! Yum!

And blonde brownies.
Don't get too excited. I did not make these!
Our wonderful neighbor bought them over!

Well those are my attempts to cook. It's nothing special but it's a start. I think I am inspired to continue my cooking efforts. I'll keep ya'll updated!
Hope everyone has had a happy Monday!
