Hello. My name is Mandi and this is my blog. My life may be crazy but it's my life and I love it.
I made this treat today. Can we say...YUM??!! I've been feeling down lately, so I decided I deserved a treat. This is what I came with. And can I just say it tastes as good as it looks! Try some for yourself. Find the recipe here.
My bestie Janee and I took a girls trip last week and we had so much fun! It was an epic trip surrounded by one adventure after another! It was my spring break and I've never been to Seattle. Janee's brother lives in Seattle so we thought it'd be fun to go visit while we have a place to stay. Our trip started out by having to postpone by a few days due to many little mishaps. Janee's brother swooped in and saved the day and our road trip turned into a plane ride. Still a road trip, just a shorter one. Instead of driving the fourteen hours to get to Washington, we drove five hours to Vegas and then flew the rest of the way. It was still an adventure, even though we weren't road-tripping it.
Day 1 involved driving like mad to make it to Las Vegas after handling multiple crisis (me waking up sick, Janee's sister cracking her phone, re-packing to accommodate the airline guidelines, Janee having to meet some work deadlines, etc.) The whole drive there I was textin…
Honestly, I've never been much of a lipstick person. I'm a pretty simple person and I don't like to have to worry about my lipstick wearing off throughout the day. I'd rather just not wear lipstick. For basically my entire life I've chosen not to wear lipstick (except on special occasions) because I just don't care to mess with it. Back in December my best friend and I were going to a big event and she convinced me that I wanted to wear some lipstick. We went shopping and she and her little sister helped me pick out a color that I thought I'd like. The color actually looked pretty good, but I felt like I needed to be worried about my color wearing off most of the night. I was reminded of why I hate lipstick so much. I know...I'm not much of a girly girl.
But then I received some Lipsense as a Christmas gift. I had heard a lot about it over the past month or so at that point, so I figured it was worth a shot. The first few times I wore it were a little…
I've wanted to do this craft forever! I finally sat down and did it and it really took no time at all! I found the idea here. She used an old dictionary to add a little flair to the board. I wasn't 100% set on that idea. So for now I left the board blank. But I'm thinking I might modge podge some cute scrapbook paper on there later. What do you think? This was such a cheap craft. I think it totaled maybe like 6 or 7 $$. I bought the magnetic board frame at the d.i. for a total of $4. I bought a bag of scrabble letters for $1 from the d.i. as well. And the magnets for the back of the scrabble pieces I already had. They are handy little things that I had in my classroom. But they can be found here at Lakeshore. They really are the most perfect magnets for this craft! (I could only find the larger size online tonight. My brain is not really working too well. But I know this is where I got them before.) So what do you think? Should I find some cute scrapbok paper or leave it …
