Foodie Friday

Ok.  I had wanted to do my 1st ever blog giveaway today!  But, that didn't happen.  I was actually going to combine a new fast food item review with a giveaway.  I'm hoping I can do it tomorrow.  Cross your fingers!

It's really actually not that exciting and I'm wondering if it's a lame idea but I think I'll do it anyways and if you don't want to win the "prize," you don't have to play :-)  Anybody have any guesses as to what I might review?  Here's a hint:  Golden Arches.

I titled this post "Foodie Friday" though because I was thinking I may reserve Fridays for food posts.!  Whether it's what I've been cooking or eating that week or a new recipe I found online, you can look for some type of food themed post from me on that day.

My pictures today are pretty plain...I don't cook beautiful food and I definitely don't know how to photograph it well.  But I want to make progess :-->

Last night I "made up" dinner.  I just threw things together that sounded good and hoped for the best.  Ryan liked it, so he said...

With a side of zucchini + squash.

Yesterday afternoon, I made butterscotch oatmeal bars using this recipe.  Don't make these.  I'm warning you.  They're absolutely delicious and I keep going back for more.  LOVE. THEM.  I changed the recipe only slightly so let me know if you want my version :>

This morning I made myself a pancake and egg breakfast!

Not as great as THIS KIND.

Did I mention I added butterscotch chips?  I have a problem. 
Last but not least, I'll leave you with an adorable pic of my baby in her pink monogrammed onesie from Shannon!  I was so glad she got to wear it today.  It's a little big but her newborn ones are getting too small to pull over her head!  :/

It's Friday!  We spent the morning catching up with my co-worker/former boss and her two sweet kiddos.  It was great to get out of the house.  But now our house is a bit of a wreck.  So on that note, I'm out!

I'll do my best to get what I had planned for today up tomorrow!

You're going to review the fruit and oatmeal from McD's aren't you? :)

Your blog makes me hungry.

I really need to go to the grocery store.

As always, Karlyn's a cutie pie!

Shannon said...

The light bulb just went off! I'm hoping your review is going to be about the new oatmeal bowls, I've seen the commercials and they look SO good but I didn't know if that was just tv.

It's either that or a Bic Mac and I just can't picture you eating one of those ;-)

I'd have to say McDonalds oatmeal:)

I always say that the look of the food only matters for my blog and before I eat it! I personally think that taste, at the end of the day, is more important than a pretty picture!

My guess is the new oatmeal. If that is it I am looking forward to your review.
Karlyn is beautiful!
