Post Christmas Re-Gift Party

Image
This year, we hosted a Post Christmas "Re-gift" Party. We stole the idea from our friends that did one last year. Each person brings a gift that they've received that they don't need/want or have duplicates. We had 3 other couples that were in town to join us. We had a blast and some yummy eats as well! 
I made a simpler version of LightLife's Mexican Dip using what we had at home, which was the Smart Ground Crumbles, Salsa, and Mexican Cheese. All I did was layer the crumbles, then salsa, then cheese on the top. I baked it at 350*F for about 25 minutes. Everyone loved the dip! It was a hit!
Check out their website for even more delicious recipes! 
We ate the dip with some Beanitos Chips. We also had Pumpkin Blondies and Pumpkin Spice Fig Bars! I always include Fig Bars at every get together we have because they are just too good and EVERYONE loves them!!! Check out their website and order some for yourself! 
On our cruise, we took a genius test and really enj…

Christmas Cruisin' 2015

Image
For Christmas this year, Jared and I went on a cruise! Being in the golf world, we spend a LOT of time apart and this cruise was EXACTLY what we needed. We experienced UNINTERRUPTED quality time to the max! We didn't have to worry about a tournament coming up next week (because Jared finally has about a month off from tournament play) and I was off from work too!
The ship itself CONSTANTLY had something fun going on, so we were never just sitting around. We ate ALL SORTS OF DELICIOUS FOOD (the best part, right?), watched entertaining shows, participated in games and trivia sessions, soaked up the sun, and just enjoyed spending time with each other.




First, here's some food pics, because we all know the food is the best part of a cruise! 




We tried so many new foods and our bellies were very happy, especially eating PIZZA at midnight! :)  We stayed up past 11:30pm EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. If you really know us, that is a big deal, because we are usually asleep by 10pm. We also wok…

If you know me at all, I am obsessed with popcorn and I love trying new flavors and brands all the time! Today, I wanted to share a company called LIVE LOVE POP!
I wasn't compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are my own.

Lighten Up Your Meals with LightLife

With the Christmas season upon us, Lightlife reached out to us and asked if we would try their products that cater to vegetarian guests.
We are not vegetarian, but we don't mind going meatless a few days a week to save money. 
The first night, we made a veggie stir fry with the Smart Ground Beef. 
We sauteed veggies and the Smart Ground Beef in coconut oil and mixed it all together for a delicious meal! 
It tasted very similar to actual ground beef and was very filling! 
Another night, we made a Smart Sausage and Bacon PIZZA, because well, WE LOVE PIZZA! 

We made the Smart Bacon just like regular bacon on the skillet until it got crispy, and we sauteed the Gimme Lean Sausage in some olive oil. Then, we put them on top of our crust with lots of sauce and some cheese and it was very tasty!
