Kitchen experiments..

Over the past few weeks I've been in a cooking experimental mood.. I don't know if it's because it's cold outside or I just love to do holiday themed things. Either way I had some fun the past couple of weeks.
For the superbowl my family has a party. My Dad loves to cook and go all out with the food and TVs. I decided to make a dessert.. I was reading one of my random blogs I like to read and found a recipe for cream cheese Oreo cookies. I thought doing them football shaped wouldn't be too hard.. One messy kitchen later... we came out with these!
Experiment #2 was some Valentines Day cupcakes.. I wanted to make some to take to our families.. I am not usually a fan of red velvet but it's a red kind of holiday! They were red velvet cream cheese.. (I didn't get a picture of the final product) but they were fun to make.

What is Valentines Day without chocolate covered strawberries?? I love my husband :)

WeDDing BeLLS N' BlinG..

It's been an eventful but GOOD past few weeks! My sister Kandace had a birthday and.. Got engaged! I am so happy for her and her fiance Trevor. They dated before he left on his mission and she waited the whole two years for him. She definitely deserves to be happy. Trevor proposed last week the night before her birthday and just in time for hearts day!! I am so excited to start helping plan the wedding!

Things have been busy for us, school started for Corby and I have been able to do more hair lately. My sister Jennica let me put some BLING strands in her hair. I hadn't really done them on anybody else so it was fun to experiment! She picked purple.. Doing them reminded me of doing hair extensions, which I LOVE to do but don't do nearly enough.

I am so glad January is over, I am a little bit late but have been thinking of some New Years resolutions.. (or new February resolutions I guess).. One of them is to eat more healthy and to keep in shape. I follow a blog/website by the cutest girl, ... Check it out, she is so motivating!!

Another one is to get my house decorated and finally put wedding pictures up! Decor and odds and ends for your house add up fast. I like to make things so I have been trying to think of things I can make..

We'll start with those and see how things go.. :)
