(A Very Emma Ramey-Themed) Five on Friday

(If you follow me on Instagram...sorry, this is basically just a repeat of what I've been posting all week.  It's become my mini-blog!  But I like keep it on here too to keep it all organized and pretty.)


See that?  That's a popsicle before lunch.

Wanna know why I'm giving a 2 year old a popsicle before lunch?


I haven't been really into potty training yet...mostly because I'm scared to death.  She's ready though.  The past couple of days, she's told us she needs to potty (mostly because she knows she gets a popsicle when she does it now).  I think we might dive into this one in the next month or so!

I've heard good things about the Three Day Potty Training Method - any other good ones out there I need to research?


I just love our local library's story time.  They make a craft pretty much every week, and have such fun activities for little kids.  This is the bird's nest she made this week - it goes along with the book Nest by Jorey Hurley.

And, just in case you were wondering, Emma Ramey enjoys it too.  This is her, getting down with her bad self, during "story-time-ercise."


This one's showing a little bit of interest in the kitchen!  She came up to me Wednesday afternoon and asked to make cupcakes - so, of course, I obliged, even thought I was up to my neck in making dinner.  She loved pouring the ingredients.

Future chef on our hands?


I found this picture yesterday...it's of Emma Ramey's first Easter.  She was two weeks old, and so itty bitty.

Excuse me while I curl up in a corner and sob.


Thought I'd give a little update on our house sale...I haven't updated since I told y'all it was under contract!  Things are going great.  We had the inspection last week, and we're in the process of doing a few small repairs they requested.  As of right now, we're set to close either at the end of next week or early the week after!  Fingers crossed everything goes as planned.  Everything has been smooth so far, but the whole process still makes me nervous.

Hope y'all have an amazing Easter weekend!

Create It Thursday #50 (Plus Features)

Create It Thursday is halfway to 100 this week!  And in a couple of weeks we'll be celebrating one year of your best creations.  Time flies, huh?

Last week held so many great ideas...a lot of which could be put to use this weekend for Easter!  Here were a few of my favorites.  These will be featured on the Create It Thursday Pinterest board too!

How cute are these hard boiled egg chicks and bunnies from Five Heart Home?  I'm not an egg fan, but even I liked this one.  Kids would love this for Easter lunch!

I love this Egg Garland project from The Jenny Evolution.  This could really be done to any colors you need!  (And - him hint - Target has colored twine for a dollar right now!)

Want to impress guests this weekend?  This Malted Egg Sugar Cookie Cheesecake recipe would definitely do it!  This was from Little Dairy on the Prairie.

Speaking of fun egg candy...how about a Cadbury Egg Sea Salt Carmel Mug Cake?  This was from Sweet Haute!

And just in case you needed a non-Easter feature...I'm saving this Magic Dough recipe from I Dig Pinterest.  I know a certain 2 year old that would love it!

Thanks so much to everyone who shared last week!  If you were featured, here's your button:

Buffalo Chicken Tortilla Pizza

A few weeks ago, I found out about the beauty of the tortilla pizza.  It was in one of my eMeals recipe lists, and I fell in love.

How did I never know about this?  Instead of worrying with pizza dough, just slap your ingredients on a tortilla...it makes a deliciously thin crust.  You'd never know it was a tortilla!

I also recently had the opportunity to try out a few of the sauces in Moore's Marinades arsenal.  They sent this fun variety pack for me to try!

I had no idea they carried all of these marinades and sauces.  I mean, I knew about the steak marinade, but they make all of these too.  And they're delicious...trust me...I might or might not have sampled them in my kitchen within about 15 seconds of opening the box.

So I thought I'd combine a couple of my recent revelations for an awesome, easy meal!

Buffalo Chicken Tortilla Pizza


1 cup Moore's Buffalo Wing Sauce, divided
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
8 soft taco tortillas
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1/2 red onion, sliced thin
1-2 stalks celery, sliced thin
1 8oz tub blue cheese crumbles
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped


Chop the chicken breast into 1/2" pieces.  Place chicken and 1/2 cup Moore's Buffalo Wing Sauce in a plastic bag and marinate for 2-3 hours.

Once marinated, cook chicken on a hot grill pan until just cooked through and browned on each side. Remove chicken and place to the side.  Cover grill pan with a little bit of oil (there will be sauce left on the pan...that's ok) and cook onions and celery for 1-2 minutes, just to take some of the crunch off.  Remove from pan and reserve.

Mix together remaining 1/2 cup Moore's Buffalo Wing Sauce and ranch dressing.  Spread a small amount on each tortilla, acting as the pizza sauce.  Spread most of the mozzarella cheese over the sauce on each pizza.  Layer with chicken, onion/celery, and blue cheese.  Sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese on top.

Cook in a 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, or until edges of tortilla and cheese on top is starting to brown.  Remove from oven and garnish with cilantro.  Cut each tortilla into quarters.

Makes 4-5 servings, depending on appetite. :)
