Products I Like 

Standard

I never knew a beauty blender existed until I received an e-mail from tarte. I didn’t want to pay $16 so I ended up finding one at Target for $5 and so far I really like it. I feel like my under eye concealer looks too caked on when I put it on with my fingers but it looks much better using my new beauty blender.

My other awesome Target purchase was cherry scented Batiste dry shampoo. I don’t like how it flaked but that is really the only bad thing I can say about this product. I like the cherry smell and I can actually run my fingers through my hair without that funky dry shampoo feeling. It’s a little expensive for the size of the can but it is well worth it.

Mexican Beef Tator Tot Casserole & Adult Root Beer Float

Standard

The Mexican Beef Tator Tot Recipe is definitely going to be a new staple for me! It was super easy and super delicious! Next time I’m going to cut the red bell pepper into smaller pieces. I added guacamole and sour cream as my toppings.


My cousin told me about making an adult root beer float using Not Your Father’s Root Beer so I had to try it! I kept sipping on the root beer and I finally had to pour it over the vanilla ice cream before there wasn’t any left ha. It tastes exactly like root beer and I actually couldn’t taste the alcohol flavor until I mixed it with the ice cream. Definitely going to make more of these as well.

Highlights

Standard

Sorry I slacked off on posting again so I’m going to give you some highlights!

Phoebe’s 5th Birthday was May 28th and she racked up on presents. I felt guilty buying her treats and toys that she would have to wait for so I had to buy her a just because present lol.

Memorial Day:

I attempted to start walking Phoebe again and she ended up having an allergic reaction to grass I think….thank goodness for Benadryl and itch relief shampoo!! It cleared up after a couple of days and we haven’t had any problems since.

I got some Bob’s by Schechers shoes that have pugs on them and they donate some of the proceeds to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah so it’s a win win!

My co-worker drew me a picture of Mel the Pug from Secret Life of Pets. I can’t wait to see it!

Phoebe and I went to the Secret Life of Pets Event at Petsmart, which was dissapointing because they didn’t have any Mel stuff 😦 Phoebe got some new collars and a new life jacket, which barely fits so she is going to have to lose some weight.

 

I found a Pug Doodle Book with stickers and a Secret Life of Pets lunch box!

We went to my family reunion for the 4th of July and Phoebe was very patriotic for about 5 min then she got muddy lol. It was hot and my Dad had to pull 3 ticks off of Phoebe but overall we had a great time.

 

 

Recipes Part 2

Standard

Tuna Noodle Casserole

I didn’t save the recipe and I’ve deleted the recipe on my Pinterest Board because I didn’t care for it. The penne was hard because you had to bake it and the tuna overpowered the sauce.IMG_4744

Beefy Cheesy Tortellini Bake

This was really good and I will definitely make this recipe again.

 

Next I made Pesto Alfredo Tortellini with smoked sausage….I’ve been on a tortellini kick. The recipe is from Belle of the Kitchen’s Pinterest page.

I tried a Philly Cheesesteak Casserole in the crockpot and it was ok.

The latest recipe I tried was Crockpot Fajitas and it was delicious! I added sour cream and guacamole to mine. I got it from Family Fresh Meal’s Pinterest Page and it was really easy!

Recipes I’ve tried lately

Standard


Chili Cheese Hotdog Caserole!

It’s very good and bad for you at the same time especially if you add more carbs as a side, which I did.

Recipe:

Ham and Cheese Tortellini 


This was ok. The ham flavor wasn’t strong and the cheese seemed to clump in certain spots.


Chicken Crescent Roll Casserole


This was delicious, easy, and I’ll definitely make it again.

I used rotisserie chicken and the recipe calls for crescent rolls, can of cream of chicken soup and shredded cheddar.
