Nutella Hiatus

Posted on

That feeling of true happiness…I am addicted to Nutella.  Seriously.  When I’m stressed out… A spoonful of Nutella.  Chocolate craving?  A spoonful of Nutella.  Happy or sad?  A spoonful of Nutella.  Walk by the jar?  A spoonful of Nutella.  Why am I gaining weight?  I have no idea! 😉

I can’t buy it anymore though.  I will eat the whole jar within a week.  Or less.  My favorite breakfast, snack and sometime dinner is whole wheat toast with peanut butter and Nutella on top.  It’s fabulous!  But I’m on a Nutella Hiatus for a while.  I must be strong.  I must have Hubby do the grocery shopping so I won’t be tempted!

But that’s not stopping me from sharing these yummy looking recipes I’ve pinned over the past year.  I haven’t made these recipes, but the pictures say it all.  Please, if you try any of them and I’m still in my Nutella Hiatus, tell me they’re horrible.  Be kind.

These aren’t all the recipes I’ve pinned.  If you want to take a look at even more crazy delicious looking recipes, check out my Nutella Pinterest Board.  Enjoy!

Goofy Like Me

Posted on

Sometimes I look at my kids and wonder where they came from.  They don’t look like me at all.  Blond hair, blue eyes.  How did that happen??  But then they do or say something that is so funny, I know it’s their goofy minds that are like me.

My son and my brother are having battle of the cookies.  They each are shocked when the cookies are gone, blaming the other for the disappearance.  My son decided it would be in his best interest if he hid the cookies in his room.  After they were gone, he printed out a message, put message in the empty cookie bag and returned the bag to the cookie cupboard.  So when my brother thought we had more cookies, he got this message from his nephew instead.  “U MAD BRO?”  That’s my boy! I was so proud! 

You mad Bro? Ha!

Then there’s my daughter.  She’s a hoot when she doesn’t even know she’s a hoot and that makes her even funnier!

She saw my Fifty Shade of Grey book on my dresser.  As I’m having a heart attack and nonchalantly putting it away, she asked me what the book is about.  I said, “ahhh, well, umm, it’s ah, it’s a grown up love story.”  She replies “Oh okay, really?  I thought it was a book you got from Lowes.”  Hehehe!  That’s my DIY girl!

Fifty Shades of Grey and fifty shades of gray!
