Creepy Crawlies

We were out in the driveway the other evening...
Doing what we do...
Visiting with our neighbors.
One of the neighbors kind of gasped...
Then slowly muttered

Seeing the look on her face, I quickly turned around to spot this...
That thing was HUGE!
Of course I took a pic and posted it to my facebook wall....
The conversation went something like this...
T-OMG That's HUGE!  Have Kyle catch it... I bet V would like to have that fella
B-OMG OMG OMG I may never come to your house again... SERIOUSLY
V-DON'T KILL IT, I will send Brandon down to get it!
T- I knew she would want it...
V-Brandon said it's underfed, but he will feed it before we let it go...
V-really shouldn't have moved him
ME- It's migrating time... I prefer he migrate on somewhere else...
T- Feed him? How n What?
V- Crickets... we will drop them into the container

That fella was the size of a saucer or salad plate.
I do know it is migration time for them, there was just a big news story on it last week...
He can move along...

SO.... Have you gone to sign up yet?
You should!
I am doing a giveaway....

When it Rains

When it rains, I think people forget their brains when driving.
I promise it's just rain.
I know we have not seen much of it lately, but seriously, it's just rain.
You don't have to drive 10 miles an hour under the speed limit...
It's just rain!
However, you do need to pay attention...
When the light is red and there are 10 cars setting at it...
You can NOT push them all out of your way.
It is in your best interest to stop or your car may end up like this...
Yeah - That is not my car, but it is the car that hit me Thursday morning.
Thus, that is why I have been skipping out on blog land for the last few days...
I am ok and my car held up very well! Only a few scratches on my bumper and trunk.

Before I go... I noticed I do have some new followers...
I have reached 65...
Therefore, I will be doing a give-a-way.
Just not today.

Want to mingle around in bloggy world?  Stop by here and meet many awsome bloggers!

Not So Wordless Wednesday

Here is a picture I took in my flower garden a couple months ago....
Found it while cleaning out my phone.
Dry weather = a ton of grasshoppers!

Remember back when I did my last give away??
I said that every 10 new followers I would do another?....until I reach 105 at least.
Guess what, only 1 more follower!   So there will be a giveaway soon!
I have an idea on what I want to do, I just have to decide for sure.

Today I am joining Welcome Wednesday over at Take it From Me.

Yes, I have been doing some blog hopping lately....
I like making new bloggy friends.

Zeppelin Time

Yesterday, the Hubs and I were watching the news and they were talking about Zeppelin making an appearance at one of the airports just a couple miles from us....
What did we do?  We looked at each other and then both jumped in the jeep and took off to see if we could sneak a peek.
No, this isn't a blimp.... this is a zeppelin and it just happens to be the largest there is!
You didn't think I was talkin' Led Zeppelin now, Did You?

First we just kind of drove around watching this thing.... Then we decided to head to the airport to watch it land.

Several others had the same idea.  To bad I wasn't smart enough to grab my camera.... so I just have phone pictures.
As we were leaving, we kind of actually got a better view from the jeep...

PS- YES I am still playing with my blog and it's design and how I have everything....
I hope to have it all in it's place soon!

Also, today I am following the Blog Trail of Six in the Nest... And Talk to Us Tuesday with Shawn and Impulsive Addict!

Seriously Shawn

Make sure you go go check both these out!

Dip Head

This past weekend I made new items to munch on during the football game. I must say this one was the biggest hit....

Buffalo Chicken Dip or Wrap

1pk of cream cheese
112.5 oz can of drained chicken
1/2 pk of dry ranch dressing/dip mix
1/3 cup Louisiana Hot Sauce

I actually tripled the recipe and used 2 packages of the dressing mix this time and it was great also.

First soften the cream cheese in a large bowl in the microwave. Next mix all the ingredients together.

How easy!

If you like things SUPER hot use1/2 cup hot sauce... if you like things kind of hot... use 1/4 hot sauce.  My suggestion is to add some hot sauce, try it... and keep adding more until it has the correct hot factor for you.

We ate this dip on corn chips, we ate this dip on crackers....
The guys even ate this dip wrapped in leafs of romaine lettuce!

It was some GOOD stuff!

Friday Confessional

I confess....
I am freaking tired this morning. No matter how hard I try... I always end up in bed about 2 hours later than I want to. Damn Angry birds.... It's all their fault.

I confess....
I am not wanting the temps here in Oklahoma to climb back up into the 80's and 90's next week. It was a wonderful 57 yesterday and that called for a pot of chili and some Frito Chili Pie.
I confess...
Getting up in the mornings is getting harder and harder. The hubs is still home on short term disability due to his foot surgery.  He will be having hand surgery soon. It's so hard to get up when you have someone laying there still sleeping....

I confess...
I am totally ready for the weekend and having time to make a BIG scentsy order of all the new fall & winter items.  Time for an open house!  I also am going to finish "cleaning up" the blog page... it's a bit under construction at this time.  I took out my recipe drop boxes and placed the recipes in a tab up top.  I hope everyone can still find them!

I confess....
I am really ready for my open house because I have two great friends joining me... one will have her awesome jewelry and the other will be selling her Jordan Esscentials and giving free "hand spa treatments".

I confess....
I am ready for some SOONER football on Saturday so I can make THIS.

I confess....
It's been forever since I have done a blog hop... but totally happy to join mamarazzi's Friday Confessional!

Garlic Cheese Dip

First off, I have to say sorry for the rudeness.  Work/Life has been hectic and I have NOT been a good bloggy friend lately.
To all my new bloggy friends over there>>>>  Hello!
Glad you stopped in for a visit!

I recently did a giveaway for reaching 55 followers.  I have decided that every time I get 10 more followers, I will do some sort of giveaway. SO, when I hit 65.... I will do another fun give away.

SO, on with the main event. It's Fall & Football time.  Who doesn't love a good cheese dip?
  Everyone, well most NORMAL person, loves velveeta cheese dip. Here is a new variation that I found.  Trust me, you really want to try this out!! 

1 (10 ounce) container Savory Garlic Cooking Creme
2 cups shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese
8 ounces Velveeta, cubed
1/2 pound thick cut bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1/4 cup beer
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 green onions, chopped

Place cooking creme, sharp cheese and velveeta into a crock-pot. Pour in beer. Top with bacon and onions. Cook on low and stir frequently to combine and melt. Serve with pretzel chips or corn chips!

*Sometimes instead of the red pepper flakes & green onions, I will throw in a can of mexican rotel.
This is cooking creme:
If you have not tried it yet.... you should.  YUMMO!

One of Those Days....

Ever have one of those days weeks...

The last few days have week has been a bit much for me between work and life in general.

Last night I get this phone call:
M:Yes Kobi?
K:(sobbing)Can you come get me?
K:I wrecked my car and I am scared to drive home.

Not something you want to hear. But all is just fine.  Not even a fender bender... just a let's exchange paint situation. There was a girl in front of my daughter at a red light.... Light turned green, she(girl in front) took off, phone rang, dropped phone and hit brakes picking it up.... Kobi did not react fast enough and hit her.

Work has been super dooper busy lately. I couldn't find a clip or a bobby pin in my purse the other day.  So I used a paper clip.
I totally forgot to take it out before I left for home.  Of course the elevator stopped on each floor to pick up another person.  Nobody commented on it though...

Totally remembered it once I was in the car....  Totally a trend setter....

My neighbor has a new set of twins....
I don't care for them though.

Look at that huge a&# creepy thing!  ICK!

Bad enough there is one monster... but TWO?  DOUBLE ICK!

Over The Weekend

So, over the weekend we had a little fun. 
Yes it started again! 
We had to have a party...
Also, was the perfect time to kill 2 birds with
on stone and celebrate my birthday.
I am a theme person... so this ended up as
The White Trash Bash.
A few didn't dress up.... a few did.
My Sister-n-law and her nephew were the best
Notice our lovely red carpet entrance?
The wigs got hot and eventually had to come off.
"the nephew" had the wig on his arm.
I so thought he had went and got my dog out of the house!
I am very protective over my little blind 13 1/2 year old dog!

Does his wig not look like my Jasper?

We had some friends that are a little "behind"...
They had no clue what planking or owling was...
We had to demonstrate.

I have decided, planking is not for those with a larger chest. - You can never really get flat!
