Shameless Derby Plug!

Here I am in my hippie, crunchy, derby mama glory :)
So even though I barely have time to write posts here, I decided to make a blog dedicated solely to my newest obsession, DERBY! Roller derby is an amazing sport and I'm having such a blast. Check out my blog, Life, Love Derby if you're interested in keeping up with my adventures in skating and hitting. You can also check out my Facebook page dedicated to my derby alter ego, Flashpoint (can anybody guess where that one came from, lol). My team, The Upstate Roller Girl Evolution is also actively seeking skaters. Check out their Facebook page if you're interested. No experience required, I can attest to that, lol.

BTW: Above photo taken by Jason R Scott of TN at our last bout against the Little City Roller Girls.

Tasty Tuesday: Corn Dip

This is seriously the best dip ever! I literally eat this with a spoon!

1 bag of frozen corn, or 2 cans (drained)
1 block of cream cheese (cut in chunks)
1 stick of butter (cut in chunks)
About 1/3 of a jar of jalapenos plus a little juice

Preheat oven to 350. Take cheese and butter and stick in microwave for about 2-3 minutes, just to get it kinda creamy. Add it to oven safe bowl with corn and jalapenos and give it a good mix with a spoon. Stick it in the oven for about 30 min, stirring every 10, till bubbly. Break out your favorite chips, or a spoon (lol) and enjoy.

I Suck at New Year's Resolutions

My resolution to blog more has obviously not been kept up, lol. 4 months into it and I suck! I'm sure my followers are wondering if I fell off the edge of the planet or something. Well, here I is! Been pretty busy with my new part time job as a firefighter for West Union, full time mommy, and full time roller derby girl! Whew! I think I sometimes have to remind myself to breathe. I do plan to get back on it and start blogging more, including a separate blog solely for the fun that becoming a derby girl entails. Got Easter this Sunday and I made a couple little goodies for my dude that I will show off once I'm done. I also got an ever growing list of goodies to make for his first birthday (first birthday, OMG!) which is less than 4 months away (cue uncontrollable sobbing). Keep on the look out tomorrow for a post with either a craft of recipe. For now, let me show off my little dude in a current picture :)

Ok ok, so two pictures. Tee hee :)
Here he is smiling for my little sis while I was doing my annual burn training

And here he is exploring with his babysitter. My gosh he's getting huge!
