I Got Some 'Splainin' to Do!

I know, I know. I have been MIA the last few days. Unfortunately, I'll probably be MIA some this week too. We're moving on Saturday, so we're busy busy getting the rest of the house packed up. Between that and taking care of an even busier 2 year old, can imagine that really doesn't leave much time for blogging, or anything else. For example, as I'm typing this, I'm hearing Hudson unpacking things I've already packed up but have yet to TAPE up! Thus life with a toddler. :)
I did want to take a minute to share a few pictures from my MIA period.

There's a couple of amazingly wonderful things about this picture. First, the Haagen Dazs Sea Salt Caramel Gelato. Get some. That is all. And secondly, I made THE BEST brownies ever last week!! Oh, and the only trouble I went to was just adding a cup of Nutella to the batter. (I used boxed fudge brownie mix) I can't even explain how ooey, gooey, & delicious these babies were! I upped the baking time by about 10 minutes. So easy, so sinful!

Exhibit A of moving/packing with a toddler. 

Have you tried these little treats? They're such a good snack when you want something sweet. You can find them with the frozen fruit. If they'd put a layer of peanut butter under the chocolate.....OMG!!! 
I'd buy every pack they had!

The new Chick-fil-A near our house is finally open and I think this could be a really dangerous thing. It's less than 5 minutes from us and it has an indoor playground. Good for occupying Hudson....bad for momma's pregnancy weight gain. :) Of course, we'll have to avoid it for at least a month, if not longer, until the novelty wears off. People go crazy when new things'd think they were giving away a million dollars or something!

I hope you had a great Father's Day weekend with the dads(or moms who fill the role of dad) in your life. We got to have lunch with Joseph's parents on Saturday and they helped us get some things packed, which was super duper helpful! We spent some time with my parents and grandparents yesterday and just enjoyed watching Hudson play with his Russ-man & Papa. 

Y'all have a great week and hopefully I'll be with the program more this week and not totally neglect the blog! :)


  1. omg that brownie looks so delicious!!!

  2. Where did you find the chocolate banana's? I looked at our local Walmart, Publix and WinnDixie but no one seems to carry them. I'm so bummed because I have been craving them since I saw them in a magazine. Good luck packing!


Thank you for reading and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I enjoy reading every single one of them!!
