The Pajama Trend
How do you wear your pajamas? Once upon a time, I wore them to bed.... maybe all day on Saturday, if I happened to get so lucky. But I never ever ventured out in them! Although, I totally could if I wanted to. Even if the pajama trend weren't all the rage in Hollywood right now, I could fit right in at my local Wal-mart in a pair of spongebob pajama pants. I really could. lol
Anyways, do you want to hear something crazy? I accidentally wore my pajamas to work yesterday. See, a while back, I found this super cute Calvin Klein blue gingham shirt at the thrift store. Of course, I snatched it right up! It fit a little weird... it just seemed a little boxy. But I was determined to make it work. And yesterday, I did. =)
After wearing it for a little while, I suddenly realized tha the buttons were a little different and the way the collar was made seemed off. And that's when it hit me. I was wearing a pajama shirt! The fact that I had paired it with a maxi skirt only made it seem more like pajamas. lol
Of course, this little number from Mimi Boutique along with the bracelets seen below made it feel a little bit less like pajamas. =)
I really do wish I had the time yesterday to take real photos, but it was a busy day and all I've got are my instagram shots. They'll have to do.
Have you embraced the pajama trend? I think this is as close as I'll get! ;)
And now for the treat! =)
The Treat - Chocolate Cracker Pops (or Smores Pops)
I was craving chocolate and sugar like made last night. And we had nothing worthy of my cravings. But I remembered seeing a pin on pinterest about smore marshmallow pops. I didn't pin it, but the idea of it stuck with me! So, when I was perusing the pantry for something chocolatey, I saw graham crackers, chocolate meltable candies and marshmallows... and I knew what I was going to make! ;)
These are super, super easy and downright delicious! You'll need the following:
Chocolate meltable candies (or anything chocolate, really)
We cut the marshmallows in half, to make them more of a bite size candy. Then, we stuck the sucker sticks into about 12 marshmallows halves. We popped the chocolate in the microwave for about a minute and I stirred it up, while my kids begged and begged for me to let them eat the marshmallows.
I then rolled the marshmallows in the warm chocolate, while my Little Miss screamed and cried for me to let her eat the marshmallows. You'd think I'd break down and let her have one, right? Nope. It was too close to dinner time and I tried explaining to her that these were for an after-dinner snack!
I crushed the graham crackers and the kids rolled the sticky chocolatey marshmallows in the graham crackers. They then whined and cried for a solid 10 minutes to let me eat the chocolate cracker pops, as my Little Guy called them, until the pizza came out of the oven and then they happily switched gears and devoured the pizza. =)
When we did finally eat them... holy moly, they were amazing! I think I ate about six of them by myself. =)
I'm linking up today with the lovely ladies at Monday Mingle!
