Last week at work we had a company picnic and had some pretty fun times! Hubbs and I even won the water balloon toss once.. Our clothes did not come away dry, but totally worth it :) We even won a blanket in one of the raffles!
This weekend we added a new addition to our family and with it, took our first big step towards Tide Twenty Two (more about that here). We look forward to take more steps into this journey, big things will happening for it soon! You can now like us on facebook as well, just click here!
We also found ourselves at another Cardinals game and had a good time! With Veteran's Day in mind, there were plenty of tributes. One was a card stunt, which was pretty fun (bottom group of pictures). I even managed to get my dad to stand up when they had all of the Veterans stand up to be recognized during the game. That in itself was a victory. We had a great time, and the Cardinals won so it was great all around! :)
Be sure to say thank you to the Veterans in your life! :)
Hey all! I've missed you guys. I guess I've been a little MIA the past few weeks... I don't know where to tell you I've even been... I guess it's easy for a week or two to turn into too many. There's been things going on, not bad things, just sometimes different things need to take priority. For all the moms out there who work, take care of the kids, and blog, I seriously admire you. Obviously I'm having a hard enough time just working and blogging :p I really do want to apologize for being gone so long, although I don't want to promise I'll be posting all the time. I'm hoping I'll want to get back into baking and such now that the weather has cooled down a bit :)
Between all that's been going on, the Hubbs and I have made some life decisions..
First, some of you may or May not know that we've been living with my dad since right after high school. The Hubbs moved in with us after some issues with his parents that I won't get into, but we stayed with my Dad even after we got married. We can never thank him enough for helping us and taking less in rent from us. It allowed me to finish school, put some money in the bank; we were even able to buy a new car. He is my rock and he has helped us more than we can ever repay him for. Now though, we are blessed to both be in stable jobs with a great company and can venture out on our own. We both love my dad dearly but I think the Hubbs and I are ready for our next step. When the lease is up where we are now, we'll be moving into our own place and starting a new chapter for ourselves :)
I don't know what we were thinking when we decided to do this next thing at the same time as moving out... But we did. We've decided to follow one of our dreams and open an online apparel company! Tide Twenty Two will be the name and we have so many things to do before we're in a position to launch but, we will be turning to kickstarter early next year to help us fund our first line of t-shirts, so keep an eye out for that! We will be starting with t-shirts and then hope to expand from there.. Baby steps :) You can follow the Tide Twenty Two twitter here for the most up to date information.
In the next couple weeks I hope to get back into blogging a bit, so thanks for your patience with this recent unplanned hiatus! ;)
We are officially into Autumn months and temperatures are starting to drop.. In Arizona that means going from over 100 degrees, down to the low 80s, so still plenty warm! I wanted something light and fluffy, and seriously, you can never go wrong with apples and Snickers.. am I right?! I also use the term "pie" pretty lightly. When you try to slice it like typical pie, it falls apart a bit, but it's still delicious!
- 1 pie crust
- 1 container of cool whip
- 1 bag of fun size Snickers candy bars (refrigerated, not frozen)
- caramel ice cream topping
- 4-5 green apples
*The amount of most of these ingredients really just depends on your preference!
1. Cut apples and Snickers into bite size pieces.
2. In a large bowl, combine most of your Snickers/apple pieces (Save some for the top of the pie) with about 2/3 of your cool whip.
3. Pour mixture into pie crust.
4. Use rest of cool whip to spread on top.
5. Drizzle with caramel and sprinkle with apple and Snickers pieces.
