A recap of January’s Recipes on Diethood.

Snowed In Diethood January Recipes Recap + $100 Target Gift Card Giveaway!It’s been TOO long since you and I got to sit back, relax, and chat for a bit. I thought we should remedy that with a little one-on-one, and a recap of this month’s recipes on Diethood. AND! At the end of it all, you get to enter my monthly Target Gift Card Giveaway! YAAAAY!

Did I tell you I moved into my new house? Yes, yes, we did! FINALLY!

Oh! And speaking of the house… the only thing that I’ve had a chance to see outside of my new windows up there in the first photo is that lovely scenery. Except, it’s SO! not lovely. That’s not fog, or some weird photo filter – that’s snow. Lots of it!

I want sun. I want warm weather.
I just want to leave the house! I think I am suffering from cabin fever. It’s been, like, forever since we went somewhere. I can hardly wait for this polar vortex to leave us alone.

On the bright side, it wasn’t this cold on NYE, so the hubby and I got to enjoy a night out with a few of our friends. We had a BLAST! I hope the rest of 2014 is as good as that night was. So far, it’s been GREAT!


NY 2014 Goce Kate Diethood January Recipes Recap + $100 Target Gift Card Giveaway!Last week I went to run some errands, and when I got to my first stop, I realized that I forgot my phone. My PHONE! That’s like forgetting my head! That phone is my every.thing. I want to say that it was the best thing to happen to me, but that would be a lie. I could not wait to get home to it. How in the world did we do life before mobile phones?! And internet?! How did that time even exist?  Anyway – I’m definitely addicted to my phone. And the internet.

Also? Any idea who is going to the Super Bowl?! Fingers crossed, it’s not the Packers. icon wink January Recipes Recap + $100 Target Gift Card Giveaway! Since there’s no Bears in it, I just tuned out.

    All the recipes are tasty looking but right now the Magic Chocolate cake is calling my name even if it’s 3am. And I don’t want any more snow either.
