What's Hap-Pinning


Wednesday, May 18, 2016

It's Wednesday and we are officially half way through the week. Sooo happy about this. Today I am joining in on the fun with Jessi and Jenn for What's Hap-"Pinning". I have never joined this link up, but I have actually had time to peruse Pinterest, so enjoy.

These yummy appetizers need to make an appearance in my life asap. What's not to love? Bread, brie cheese, honey and strawberries. It would go perfectly with a crisp white wine on a Friday evening.

Growing up one of my favorite meals (other than spaghetti) was sloppy joes. I couldn't get enough of them. I used to make them weekly before moving in with Rory. He is a hater and doesn't like them as much as I do. So I search for new recipes to try out on him in hopes he will come to the sloppy side. I plan to sneak these into our meal plan next week.

I love quick and easy meals. Ones that remind me of boneless wings are even better. These babies are baked, not fried, so I would feel less guilty indulging in them. Pair them with some rice or roasted veggies and you have an amazing meal.

I don't have any idea on where I can bring this to, but I need somewhere to go ASAP. This looks sooo good. I love artichoke dip and this makes it so much easier. Anyone want to invite me over for a party so I can make this?

My girls are almost 17 months. How is that even possible? We are constantly trying to find ways to entertain and distract our toddlers. Toddlers can be monsters and you have to break out the big guns to entertain them. 

While we are not quite ready to wean the girls off their pacis, it is a thought in the back of my mind. We hope to wean them by the time they are 2, so we have some time, but we will need all the help we can get. Avery loves her paci. They don't use them all the time, but bedtime will be the hardest. 

Seriously so much fun pinning, wishing and planning today. And if you are not following me on Pinterest, you should do so here.

Don't forget to link up tomorrow for Confessional Thursday!

  1. Girl, those recipes look amazing!! I make sloppy joes every once in a while and it's Cam who doesn't want them. He's at the age of chosing his food based on how it looks. He doesn't know what he's missing. I'll have a party and you can bring that spinach dip bread. ;) Hope you are having a great week.

  2. Those recipes look so good! I want to try that strawberry bruschetta! I definitely need that paci pin. Jack is obsessed and has anywhere from 6-10 in his crib at a time. I've got to wean him soon!! Happy Wednesday!

    1. Ugh, why can't my husband like them more. I guess I will just make them without telling him so I can get my fix. I am making homemade caesar salads tonight and it isn't my favorite at all. Table side at a restaurant I am all for, but at home, no.

  9. The food looks delicious! My daughter was super attached to her paci and we tried just about everything to break her from it. One day she handed it to me and said no - it's like she was ready to let it go all on her own! -xx Leah || Chasing Texas

    1. That is so awesome. I hope my girls will give it up on their own. They love it in the car, during naps, walks in their stroller and bedtime. Otherwise they are pretty good without it.

  11. I LOVE sloppy Joes! They are one of my favorites and I haven't had them in ages. I'm going to have to make them soon!

    And thank you for the paci pin... ugh, we need to get Olivia off of hers and I'm dreading it. She only gets it at night, but she adores that thing and I'm worried we're going to mess up her sleep when we take it away.

    1. You should. I am sneaking them in next week. I just won't tell Rory until I am making them.

      That is what I worry about with the girls. They only use it at nap time, bed time and stroller rides, but it soothes them when they meltdown. I don't look forward to that time. At least Olivia only uses it at night.
