Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!


So far the hardest part of wedding planning has been bridesmaid dresses!  I really want the girls to be able to wear their dress after the wedding.  I am not very traditional!  I would love if all the girls had a different dress!  I want them to get something they think looks great on them.  I have really pretty friends which makes my wedding party pretty much a group of models.  They could all wear trash bags and still look amazing.  I also do not want them to have to pay a lot of money for a dress they may never wear again.  Here is what I like so far......Pewter/Dark Gray is the color by the way!

Found this one at Nordstrom! ON SALE-Taylor

Maggy London from Nordstrom too!

I totally just noticed that there are 7 dresses on here and I have 7 bridesmaids! Maybe that means they can all just pick one!! Oh I wish it were that easy.


So Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday...I am really looking forward to CHEATING ON MY DIET, the commercials and wearing sweatpants all day!  I am still looking for something to make for the party Dave and I are going to....Here are the options I am looking at...of course I will make them as low calorie as possible....sadly fat free cheese just doesn't taste good!

Buffalo Chicken Cheese Bites
 2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded

1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot sauce

4 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

a Sprinkle of blue cheese crumbles (about a 1/4 a cup)

a dash of salt, pepper, and garlic salt.

1 cup all-purpose flour

3 eggs, lightly beaten

2 cups bread crumbs


1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease; set aside.

2. Place shredded chicken in a medium-sized bowl. Mix in hot sauce, cream cheese, cheddar cheese,blue cheese, salt, pepper and garlic salt, until combined.

3. With a small cookie scoop, scoop mixture out and roll into balls.

4. Place flour, egg, and the bread crumbs in three separate bowls, arranged on the counter for dipping. Roll each ball in the flour, then the egg, then the bread crumbs, until coated well. (Your hands will get messy). Place each ball on the repared baking sheet.

5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. Serve with more Frank's sauce, ranch dressing, or blue cheese.

Makes about 2 dozen cheese bites.

*When short on time, you can use a 12.5 oz can of chicken breast, drained. I use the canned chicken from Costco all the time. It tastes great and is a great time saver.

Jersey Cookie Cake

I made this last year for the Colts/Saints game! Basically formed cookie dough into a jersey and footballs then decorated!  This year it will be green!  GO PACKERS!

A friend and I were texting about calorie counting and food shopping today and she reminded me about this quote that I had forgotten!  It helps me put down the cookie :)
