Chili Dog Casserole

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and it looked awesome. I love hot dogs and this was a fun twist on just a normal chili dog. 

1 package of hot dog buns
1 pack hot dogs
1-2 cans chili (personal preference on how much you like)
cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Rip up buns into pieces and place in bottom of 9x13 baking dish.  Cut hot dogs into small pieces and place on top of buns. Cover with chili then cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

I'm a Jamberry consultant now!

Have you ever heard of Jamberry? No? Well, why not?! You will be addicted I promise you that!  They are vinyl nail wraps that come in over 300 designs and you can even create your own designs too.

I decided the other day after hosting a party to just bite the bullet and become a consultant.  Most of the parties are online and they have one of the best compensation plans of all the home party businesses.  So, I figured why not? I could use the extra money for the wedding and honeymoon coming up.

Wraps should last 14 days, sometimes more depending on how rough on your nails you are. The photo above has the Black Lace wrap and nail polish. The nail polish was chipping by the end of day 1 but didn't look awful until day 6. The wrap was going strong for a long time. 

They also have nail care items and all the items you need to apply the wraps. You can watch an application video on youtube. It's so easy.

January Date - Year of Dates

Remember how I told you I gave Mike a year of dates for Christmas? Well, our January date is already here and gone.  

Inside the January envelope was tickets to the movies and a gift certificate to Shoreline Brewery. 

Mike had a beer and a burger at dinner and I had their mac & cheese. It was delicious.  We actually still have a few bucks left on our gift certificate so we may go back for pretzels which we've heard are amazing. 

We saw Taken 3 after dinner. It was a good movie, but I preferred the first two movies over this one. 

After our movie we headed home and opened the envelope for our February date. Can't wait until it's here!

Let them eat cake!

A regular part of wedding planning is cake tasting. My cousin is making our cake for our wedding so we most likely won't be doing a cake tasting. However, a local bakery did a public cake tasting this past weekend. Anyone could go, you just had to pay per person. I immediately signed us up, because one, it would be neat to have a cake tasting during our wedding planning and two, who doesn't like cake!?

There were seven different flavors.  Pumpkin spice, pink champagne, turtle, white with strawberry filling, carrot, lemon yogurt with raspberry filling, and banana. 

We got our cake and sat down and Mike started shoveling it in. I don't think he even tasted it he was just chowing down.  His favorite was the turtle one. 

I sat down and took the time to pose for a picture before I too started shoveling it in. It was so good.  I tried not to eat all of it but I couldn't save any of the pink champagne one, it was too good. 

We brought home a small box of cake for the kids. It was a lot of fun and so delicious.
