Five on Friday!


It's Friday! It's also my weekend to work Saturday and Sunday, but at least I was off last weekend when the snow came through. It's the first snowstorm that I haven't had to make my way to work in. Overall, my week was pretty great! So onto my Five on Friday!
I made this crockpot dip for work last week. One of our respiratory therapists is leaving for a new job so we had a pitch in and the theme was "something from pinterest". I randomly picked this dip because it seemed easy, and it could cook while I slept for work. It was so so delicious, that I had everyone on the unit asking me for the recipe. Here it is just for you! PS - I doubled the recipe below to feed everyone, I highly recommend doing so. It's so good that you'll need double!
1 pkg cream cheese
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 jar pizza sauce
1/4 cup pepperoni (I used mini ones)
Put all ingredients in the crockpot and cook on high for an hour.
I stumbled on this while I was perusing pinterest too. Is it just me, or does anyone else think that it would be so fun to do a photo shoot with all your girlfriends?! I think these are adorable, and what a great memory to have of all the friends that have stuck by your side this long. I hope that I can set this up one day :)
These are the hair ties that I ended up making from my post on Tuesday! I am so happy with how they turned out, and the patterns are so cute! Watch out for more elastic on sale at Jane.com to make your own!
Isn't Target the best? I accidentally stumbled upon this bridal robe, which I ended up getting for my sis to use in 4 months for her wedding. Apparently they have a small little bridal section. It was actually really cute. They had this robe, a few cute pairs of underwear with "Bride" on them, etc. If you are looking for bridal gifts that won't break the bank but are still cute, check here!
I also scored this cute pink dress that was on sale. It also hits at a great length - not too short like a lit of sundresses. Maybe it's just me who has this problem since I'm so tall?
Lastly, I have been rocking these super soft and comfy house slippers that my sis got me for Christmas. They are from Pottery Barn, and they are awesome. Not sure how much they were exactly, but I know they were relatively cheap for a PB product. And I think they mayyyy be from the kids section.
I hope you all have an awesome weekend!

  11. Have I been married too long to still rock the "bride" wear? I mean it's been almost 6 years since I walked down the aisle. I know I'm a wife but I was also a bride...... Lol that is too cute!

  12. Love those headbands! I'm going to keep an eye out because I searched high and low at Hobby Lobby this week and couldn't find any printed elastic... tragedy.
    I always have trouble with things hitting me weird. I have long legs so stuff that should be "just above the knee" is closer to mid thigh...

    Have a good weekend!
