I can’t even believe we’re weeks away Thanksgiving. You guys, how did this happen?!

I feel like I’m behind on planning everything – have you figured out your menu yet?

I forever have that problem where I have so many recipes I want to try but I also want to make all the holiday classics and there’s just not enough room on my table for everything and it’s just me and my 3 boys so it’s not like we need a ton of food.

I do have desserts figured out which, you know, is the most important part.

Hey guys, happy almost Friday! I’ve got your weekend plans right here! Make up a batch before you head to the beach or the pool or whatever

When my mom was here last week, I was trying to sell her on Texas and I was all, “Mangoes are only $.50 in the summer! And avocados are 3 for $1! THREE AVOCADOS FOR ONE DOLLAR!”

Didn’t convince her to move here and help me take care of all my kids but hey, it really is one of my favorite things about Texas.

So yeah, I’ve been buying avocados by the dozen it seems like and then all of a sudden, they’re all about to go bad and I’m forced to make a huge batch of guacamole and then eat it all myself since my kids won’t touch it.

Rough life, right?

Heeeey guys, happy Monday!

You guys. I was sick all weekend.

All. Weekend.

How does this happen to me? I don’t know anyone that’s sick. I have no idea where I got it. But it was horrible and I’m happy to be feeling mostly better today.

The cold did, however, give me plenty of time to binge watch season 2 of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. I’ve never been more excited to get a notification on my phone than when Netflix told me that iy was available. I was obsessed with the first season and then I kind of stopped watching TV a few months ago and forgot about it. But it’s still amazing and I highly recommend it if you’re into weird musical/romantic comedy-type things.

I’m usually not but I love that show.

Heeeey guys! Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? Saturday was my favorite day of the month: our local food truck festival! I don’t know why I love it so much. I mean, I visit all my favorite food trucks frequently but for some reason, it just makes my heart happy to see them all together. So the boys and I ventured to downtown Temple for kimchi fries, brisket nachos, and lumpia.

Anyway, big game’s this weekend, huh? Excited?!

Me too!

Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Peanuts - the perfect party snack!

Happy Monday, y’all!

How was the weekend? We did Christmas on Saturday because I gave my ex the holidays this year. Santa came and all that. So I ate cookies literally all weekend and now I think I need to go on a detox for the next month and a half.

Also, super excited to put all the Christmas decorations away the second I hand the kids over to their dad.

Anyway, our Christmas was fabulous. As you know, this was the first one since the divorce and I had a moment of  “Whoa, I actually pulled this off all by myself” as I watched the kiddos open their gifts.
