Recipes and Wall Hangings

I've been on a diet for the last couple of weeks.  I'm doing Weight Watchers old style because I know how to do it.  I've thankfully lost 7.5 pounds! I need to get off some baby weight.

Tonight was my night to take snacks for our parenting class and I was excited to try out a few recipes I had seen on Pinterest and also make some old favorites.  I totally blew the diet tonight but tomorrow is a new day, right? Anyway - I thought I'd share the recipes in case you are looking for some fun appetizers!

Fruit Salsa
I tried this for the very first time and it was SOOOOOO good! I didn't make the cinnamon sugar pita chips but served it with graham crackers. This is something I think I'll be making a LOT of in the future.
(P.S. Target sells cinnamon sugar pita chips in case you don't want to make your own)
(Picture came from the site because I totally forgot to take pictures)
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
This is SO good - I don't even know what to say. I served it with chocolate animal crackers. WHOA!

7 Layer Dip 
(I borrowed this picture off of google)

Layer a can of refried beans
Next a layer of guacamole
Mix 16 oz sour cream with 1 pkg of taco seasoning - that's the next layer
Shredded Cheddar cheese
Diced tomatos
Black Olives

(That's only 6 layers - so I'm not sure why it's called 7 layer dip - but whatever - it is SO good!)

I have to show you the neatest prints I got for the girls rooms.  I finally got them framed and hopefully before 2012 I'll get them hung up.  I got them on an etsy shop and she does all kinds of amazing Bible verse prints!! You can't have enough scripture in your house in my opinion!
Naptime Diaries is the shop.

This is my favorite verse for girls.  It's a verse I love to remember.  On days like recently where I feel really fat and ugly and just yuck about myself..............the thing I need to remember is I'm created in God's image and HE thinks I'm beautiful. That's what I want my girls to know.  It's not about what is on the outside - God is ENTHRALLED with our beauty. And He made each of us different and He takes great pleasure in that! It doesn't matter what the world thinks - the ONE who made us - thinks we are perfect!

P.S. Remember I told you about those great life planners? Well - on Zulily today - you can get a voucher for $25 that's worth $50 of stuff on so if you buy that - you can get your planner half off! I promised I'd tell you if I ever saw another coupon!
