Woooo Pig Soooie!!

Alex always gets up with Amelia on the weekends. He lets me sleep as late as I want and boy do I appreciate it. I woke up this morning to find he and Amelia playing in the living room. He was out of town all week on business, so he has wanted to take care of her all day. He has changed every diaper, given her every bottle, etc. He is such a good Daddy. While he and Amelia played, I enjoyed a cup of pumpkin spice coffee that my S-I-L, Jen gave me. If you have a Keurig, you need to try it. It tastes like pumpkin pie in a cup! So yummy.

I fixed some of our favorite dip before the Razorback game. Heather shared this recipe a while back and I almost always have the ingredients for it in my pantry/fridge. Only 4 ingredients. Cream cheese, black beans, rotel & shredded cheese. Warm through in the oven and serve with fritos or tortilla chips. So easy and good!



Alex chose Amelia's outfit for the game.



I have to admit...I wanted to eat her up with a spoon.



She looked so sweet.



She can't call the Hogs just yet...



But we're working on it. :)



Speaking of the Hogs. WE WON!!! I watched the first half with Alex, before having to leave for my mani/pedi appointment. When I arrived at the salon they were watching the Ole Miss game, instead of the Razorbacks!! I had to get a play-by-play from friends. Once I received the text from Hillary that we had won, I screamed out-loud during my manicure! HAHA! There were only 4 people in the place, so I could care less. Our win made for a good afternoon. :) I ran by Target and Old Navy and then headed back home.

Joy has been telling me about this salad, so I made it for dinner tonight. These are the ingredients you need to make it.



Right before serving, you toss it in ranch dressing & crushed lime tortilla chips. Alex and I loved it! I will definitely make it again.



Several have asked if I'm planning a party for Amelia's 1st birthday. The answer is YES!! :) I have lots of ideas in my head, but have accomplished very little. I've started on her birthday video, looked at cakes, booked the photographer, made a few other phone calls, but nothing is really done. I have to get on the ball. October 22nd will be here SOON. I'll keep you updated as I choose the color scheme, food, cake, decor, etc.

Love to all,

Is Amelia's bday on the 22nd? Our baby boy will be ONE on the 20th! I've been birthday party planning, too! I knew they were close in age but I didn't realize how close!

Love the cheer outfit! And I totally forgot to try my pumpkin spice this morning.... tomorrow. :)

Friday was such fun, we need to do it again SOON! I'm glad you were able to go get your nails done. Alex is such a good daddy to take care of Amelia all day :)

Talk to you soon.

Heather said...

We love that dip so much, too! I am going to have to try that salad---it looks YUM!!! GO HOGS!!!! :) I want to get a cheerleader outfit like that for AK!

Amber said...

Oh my gosh! I LOVE her little cheerleader outfit...SO cute! Have fun planning that birthday party. I can't believe the time is here for that already.

KJ said...

Birthday partys are the best! Its just as much fun for the moms.

Faith said...

That little cheerleader could not be any cuter!! That dip also looks so yummy. Is the cream cheese just spread on the bottom and then the beans and rotel on top of that?

So glad you had a great weekend with your sweet family!

Hi. I came by from Jen's blog. I have/am dealing with infertility and my husband and I just moved from the Midwest to South Carolina so he can preach for a small congregation. I love the recipes on your blog and Amelia is so cute!
