D is for....

Dips! I made two easy dips this weekend and thought I would share them! The first is salsa!
Brookie loves this salsa!!
Here are the ingredients:
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 can of rotel with lime and cilantro
1/2 small onion chopped
juice of 1 lime
1 teaspon of minced garlic (from the jar)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspon of pepper
Blend in the blender! So easy and good.
The second dip is a garlic and herb cheese spread.

Here are the ingredients:
1 8oz package of cream cheese (I use the light or fat free)
2 tablespoons of milk
Beat these two ingredients together with a hand mixer.
Then add:
1 1/2 teaspoon of finely minced garlic (again out of the jar!)
3/4 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon of onion powder
2 or 3 chopped green onions
Mix the rest of the ingredients with the hand mixer.
Next time you need a quick and easy appetizer- you have two to choose from!

My trip to nashville...

Can you tell how much I love this child??? I'm not sure he feels the same about me just yet... :)

Reed laughed and smiled almost the entire time, but I didn't get any good pictures of him! He's a fast little thing! I love spending time with him (and his mom and dad)!


I found these pictures on my camera from April when we went to Memphis to celebrate my Mom and Dad's birthday!

C is for....

a cute little face... (adjectives count, right?) I got to spend all weekend with my nephew, Reed! My Dad and I drove to Nashville Friday morning and got there a few minutes before he woke up from his afternoon nap. (My mom was already there) I took him happies including the shirt he is wearing that I made him. I have other pictures that I took that i hope to post sometime this week. He has gotten so big and has learned new words! I taught him uh-oh while I was there. We didn't do much besides hang out around the house and go out to eat because Reed was running fever and not feeling too well. I love getting to spend time with him- he is growing so fast!
