A DFW Blog Meetup + Our Weekend

Friday night I had the pleasure of meeting so many fabulous bloggers in the DFW area!  They were ALL so sweet and I can’t wait until we all get back together again. 
Here we are….gulp.  I don’t know why I was making that face or if I was talking about something…but ya know…I totally photo bombed this photo!
 Our fab desserts
I got a s’more and it was delish!
Thanks to Meagan for taking these great pictures!

You all are just precious!

This weekend we ate dinner at my in-laws house with all the cousins.  Connor LOVES getting together with all his cousins.  It’s so hot outside, but the kids love playing outside.  I am SO ready for fall!!!!

We also got him The Polar Express to watch and he LOVES that movie…but since I’ve seen it 5 times this weekend I think I am going to hide it until Christmas! Eeeeeek! 

Love the weekends with my family….they are my heart.

Olympic Cupcakes

There is probably a reason I’m not a “food blogger”.  I love to eat and bake…but I ain’t the best at it ya’ll!  I just sounded like Paula Dean there….

 Here I was trying to get the the Olympic spirit…so I made these simple cupcakes with M&M’s:

Then…..they started slip sliding away…..
As long as they TASTE good right?
I do not like canned icing so I tried a new recipe.  It tastes great, but was a little runny.
I’d give this tryout a 7/10 🙂
