Surf's Up {A Little Fashion}

A Sponge Bob sno cone maker that was a $5 gag gift from the after Christmas clearance rack provided us quite a bit of entertainment last week. You would have thought the sugar covered ice was pure gold! In reality, it was a little treat in exchange for cute smiles. Yes, I occasionally bribe my kids.

This is my absolute favorite FabKids outfit. Cooper was so excited when he saw this one and just had to have it. I secretly love when he picks the same outfit that I would have! I can't wait to take Mr. Personality back to school shopping. His taste in clothes is so fun to see! 

Linking up with Kelly for Trendy Tot Tuesday.

Weekend Wear Out

Last Thursday, I spent about 14 hours straight cleaning my house and going through those last few pesky boxes that had yet to be unpacked. At midnight, I painted my nails and fell into bed, wondering what kind of crazy person agrees to 16 people in their house for the weekend. But when the doorbell rang Friday morning, I was oh so glad I did! 

A few of the families from our old neighborhood in Virginia made the trip down to North Carolina to see us. We really made some awesome friends there and as sad as it was to move away from them, it makes me so happy that we are continuing our friendship. 

Friday morning, a handful of the people got their early and we headed to the lake. (But first...let me take a selfie.)
We spent a few hours trying to flip people off our quickly deflating tube and floating around the lake. 
Oh and beer drinking. 
By afternoon, the whole crew had arrived, we ate great North Carolina style BBQ for dinner and I was glad I had decided not to cook. It was delish! Apparently, I was more tired than I realized, because when I went to take Cooper to bed, I blinked too long and didn't come out till the morning. Whoops. 

Saturday, the whole gang loaded up for a full day on the water. 

Callan did his typical boat nap on a bed of beach towels. 
And when everyone else went to a little restaurant to grab some food, I got a little down time with him. 
We stayed out until the sun went down, ending the night with music, dancing and grilling dinner at 10pm. The hubs and I spent Sunday napping, between loads of sheets and towels. It was an amazing weekend! 

All the guest loved these baskets I made up for each room. I love feeling really comfortable when I go places and I think having a few necessities in your room when you travel is really nice!
I had to show you these downright bad for you dessert that I made when they were all here. Cookie dough, smushed between pretzels, dipped in chocolate and chilled. I would have a better picture except, as you can imagine, they didn't last long at all!

Spinach, Feta and Roasted Red Pepper Pizza {Recipe}

There's not much better to me than pizza. Also, not much more guilt laden. I love this lighter version of a favorite and it definitely doesn't lack flavor.

My father-in-law would probably tell you that this recipe is a complete waste of a perfectly good pizza crust. I think if I could get him to taste it, dreaded spinach and all, that he just may sing a different tune.

Recipe:

1 Pizza crust
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 whole roasted red pepper, sliced
2 cups spinach, torn
1 chicken breast, fully cooked and thinly sliced (leftover grilled chicken is perfect!)
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
Garlic salt (optional)
Parmesan cheese (optional)

Roll your dough out onto a hot stone, or pan of your choice. Spread olive oil all over crust and add toppings. I sprinkle a little garlic salt and sometimes parmesan cheese around the edges of the crust before baking to add some flavor! 

Bake according to crust directions. Typically 425-450 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until browned and cooked through.

There are so many crust options, including whole wheat ones out there. I make my own dough out of unbleached flour and use it for everything from pizza crust to cinnamon rolls. I'll share the recipe soon!
