Sweet Treats for Easter Sunday

Happy Holy Week! 😉

As Easter Sunday rapidly approaches, many people are preparing their holiday menus. My Mom is hosting at our home this year, and while she is hands down THE hostess with the mostest – it’s safe to say that baking is not her favorite pastime. Lucky for her, she has two daughters and a slew of nieces and sister-in-laws who love to do so!

And we always show up!

Blogmas 2014 – Day 13: Busy Saturday

Happy Blogmas Day 13!

It’s been a super busy Saturday, but I wanted to squeeze in a quick post – determined not to miss a day!

So, little side note, last night I finally watched Frozen for the first time & oh my gosh – what an awesome movie!

Pizza too, of course.
Pizza too, of course.

I completely understand this whole Frozen phenomenon/obsession now. Such a funny & adorable story, not to mention, those songs! Loved it 🙂

Tonight, one of my best friends is having a little holiday/birthday party at her apartment, so I’ve been tackling my jumbo to-do list before heading out.

I did a ton of baking this morning, squeezed in a mani (polish = Pure Ice “Free Spirit”) not sure I like it very much, but just going with it. Cleaned up, did some laundry, plucked my eyebrows, took a shower and noww I’m watching Home Alone as I write this. I’m starting to believe that its impossible to watch too many Christmas movies. I wish I’ve kept count!

That’s it for today! I’ve got to figure out what to wear and attempt to style my still-too-short-for-my-liking hair. Ugh lol.

Have a great night!

XOXO

Munchies, Manis, and Manning

While I’m not the biggest Football fan I do enjoy watching the Superbowl. Seeing as my entire family is made of Giants fans, this one was extra special. I spent Superbowl XLVI at my parents house relaxing, eating and enjoying some time with everyone. (I was not going to take any chances watching this game with my die-hard Giants fan of a boyfriend, he was halfway across the state doing whatever it is he does lol).

My Mom, and sister were so cute in their Giants gear! I love that my Mom wore her heeled clogs, I would have done the same 🙂

The girls spent the day  cooking and baking some yummy treats for the family. We had so much food, I had to take some pictures of my favorites!

My Mom made mac and cheese (my absolute favorite), the most tender pulled pork and she totally outdid herself with a serious nacho platter. My sister and I made a dirt pudding (vanilla pudding mixed with cream cheese, butter, cool whip, and Oreos).

We made another special dessert in honor of Eli- seeing as Ange (Mom) is obsessed with him! Every time he’s on screen she says “I LOVE Eli…he’s such a nice boy!” So of course we had to make his favorite cookies! Eli’s Mom makes him “Lace” cookies whenever he visits home, and I can see why- they were SO good!

They are very thin, crispy, oatmeal, brittle-like cookies. We made 6 dozen, and they were such a hit. I honestly cannot wait to make them again!

Whenever I’m home I’m always playing manicurist. I gave my Mom and sister gel manicures- Katherine got the sweetest Valentines Day inspired mani!

We had a really nice time, I love being with my family. Plus the GIANTS won! 🙂

What did you do/eat on Superbowl Sunday?
