Friday Fun Facts

TGIF!!  Are you ready for the weekend?

- Today we woke up to this:
  
 It's 29 today but feels like 20 (waaaay to cold for me)

- Two days ago I walked Layla at lunch and it was 65 degrees- I was wearing capri pants and a long sleeve t-shirt! I'm not sure what is up with this weather in Maryland

- Can you believe it's February already?  Which means: my birthday is in one week and we are one month closer to spring! 

- I've decided to stop doing Friday's Fancies posts because shopping when pregnant is depressing and no fun and it just makes me miss all the clothes I can't buy this season 

- I'm avoiding starting a baby registry.  I'm finding the whole process very overwhelming.  I know that I just need to sit down and start doing research/visiting stores/ gathing all your great advice etc and just start working on it.  

- The nursery on the other hand I'm having no problem with.  That like my wedding theme I've had in my head since before I was pregnant.  (Yes I pretty much knew my full wedding decor about 2 years before getting engaged)

- Boy names? Hahahahahahaha. Yeah that's how I feel about trying to choose names right now. It's too hard so I'm just avoiding it.  Girls names were a breeze for us and we had a ton we could both agree on.  So far we can't really come up with any boy names we both like.  So far Baby Boy H might be his name.   That will sound good on a resume, right?? 

-  Are you all excited for Super Bowl? I live in Maryland and I'm not a Ravens fan but it is still fun following all the hype with the Ravens and their beloved Ray Lewis heading to the Super Bowl.   I like to celebrate Super Bowl but consuming large amounts of food (and usually alcohol) such as my favorite Buffalo Chicken Dip.   I like the recipe from my Junior League Cookbook best- I've included it at the bottom of the post 

- I have been missing wine so badly this week.  We had our first book club meeting of the year last night (our book club is more like a wine club) and my sparkling apple cider just wasn't cutting it.  The wine just smelled so good 

- I joined The Vine because I had to see what it was about and I'm not sure I get it or I'm going to use it.  It's basically like instagram only short videos- I don't think I do anything that exciting that you would want to see.  If you want to find me my user name is: nathend5 


Buffalo Chicken Dip

Ingredients: 
4 or 5  boneless skinless chicken breats (I know some poeple use canned chicken but I refuse to and always use fresh chicken breast)
1 (12 ounce) jar of hot red pepper sauce (I usually use Frank's Red hot buffalo)
16 ounce cream cheese, softened 
1 bottle (12 ounces) ranch or blue cheese dressing (I usually do ranch)
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded 

Boil the chicken in water to cover in a large saucepan for 20-30 minutes or until fully cooked.  Shred the chicken with a fork into bite sized pieces and place in a bowl.   
Pour the hot sauce over the chicken to marinate and let sit for 8-10 hours (There is no need to do it this long at all, I would say 2-3 max is all you really need.  If you have time then do it over night if not don't worry about it ) 
In a 9x13 baking dish layer the cream cheese, undrained marinated chicken, salad dressing and top with mozzarella. 
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  I always serve mine with Fritos scoops but any type of tortilla chip will work.

Enjoy- you will be the hit of the party!

  1. It is fun to live in MD with the Super Bowl. NYers didn't seem as excited about the Giants last year!

    I have seen Hale Navy all over your Pininterest. Pretty sure that is my living room color, but now I am drawing a blank!!! Will have pictures soon!

  2. I HATE the Ravens - so out of spite I'm cheering on the 49ers because I have nothing against them lol And WHAT is up with this Maryland weather?! It was so nice a few days ago - no coat needed now it's freezing and snow is covering the ground. Mother nature is freaking out lol

  3. We are from Maryland (Annapolis), although currently in VA for another 6 months to a year (Blacksburg, VA). It's windy and 5 degrees here and if I've learned anything about MidAtlantic weather....it's completely unpredictable. We are on our 3rd snow day on a Friday and I'm craving the beach.

    I'm sure Maryland has been painting the town purple...not a big pro football fan, but it's fun when your hometown team is going to SuperBowl.

    Have a good weekend.
