time is flying by!

Oh my gosh, I feel like i haven't written a post or taken a photo for the longest time!
Between graduating, getting a job, moving, family emergencies & whatever else life is throwing around I have had ZERO time for a new post!!!
I promise I will have something yummy or an easy peasy DIY up SOON!!!!!!

During my quick trip to Washington last weekend my Grandpa shared some jokes with me! 
I couldn't help but giggle all day at this!

tasty BBQ chicken & Bacon pizza

I have got a huge crush on the BBQ chicken pizza at California Pizza Kitchen, but they are pretty expensive for a pizza... so, I made my own! MmMMMMmmmmm

pizza dough (Trader Joe's has pre made & it is SO YUMMY)
BBQ Sauce
Chicken Breasts
Parmesan /Gouda cheese mix (if you want)

Cook up those chicken breasts, I popped mine in the oven with olive oil, salt, pepper & some other herbs... however you like your chicken!
Cook up that yummy bacon, cut first... it's A LOT EASIER
Roll out your pizza dough, I had my assistant in the kitchen for this one ;)
spoon over BBQ sauce over dough
Throw all those other toppings on top!
I grated the onion & garlic into little pieces & threw some around... do as much as you like! Some people don't like onion & garlic!
Then top with that yummy cheese & drizzle some BBQ sauce on top!
Follow the pizza dough directions & cook pizza as directed, once it is cooked up top with some fresh cilantro & eat up!!!

fork, wine cork & LABEL

A craft!
I feel like most of my blog has become recipes, which is strange.
Anyhow, how cute & easy are these!?
I combined a few different ideas that I have seen on Pinterest & created these cuties!
What you'll need:
forks, wine corks, hemp string (or yarn, whatever tickles your fancy), hot glue gun (or super glue may work), marker (my mom is one upping me & using a wood burner to write her labels on) & some scissors of course.

Wrap & glue your string or yarn around the forks!!! Tie a cute bow & super glue wherever you would like, first step DONE!
Second, stab your wine cork... I also used a knife to make the holes a little deeper but be SUPER CAREFUL! Don't cut yourself!
Then put your glue on your holes & re insert your forks in!
write whatever you are labeling on your cork...
& you're DONE!

Now hopefully these herbs will grow! Testing my green thumb, yet again!
