A Skillful Sailor

Today I saw this quote on pinterest and I fell in love. We all experience hard things in our lives, but the beautiful thing is that's what makes us stronger. In those difficult moments it can be hard to realize that's what your challenges are doing, but hopefully a quote like this can come to mind. I need hang this EVERYWHERE for those really rotten bad days. I hope you have wonderful day lovelies!

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one...BUT I LOVE FALL! I would have to claim that my hometown is one of the most beautiful places to experience the changing leaves. Devin and I headed up to Park City this weekend, to celebrate my wonderful sister Madi's birthday, my Dad's birthday, and an early birthday for Devin! On Sunday we took a gorgeous autumn walk and were fascinated with how beautiful the colors are. If you haven't, take a look outside and enjoy the leaves while they are still here!

 Apparently we thought me flipping my hair was REALLY funny.
 The sweetest parents in the whole world! We love them so much!

 I didn't edit this at all! Look at how vibrant the colors are!

I was trying to be artistic in this one, I shot it through a hole in another leaf.
P.S. I found out Park City had it's first snow of the year today, so I'm especially happy that I caught these pictures! Have a wonderful day lovelies! XOXO Kinzie

Easy Peasy Pizza

This week I've had a meal planned every night. This quite accomplishment for the girl that used to solely live off oreo cookies and chips and salsa. On Tuesday Devin and I made French Bread Pizza. Holy tolito it was freaking delicious. Not to mention super easy and dirt cheap. That's my kind of meal!
Here is the grocery list
1 Loaf of French Bread = $1.59
2 Bags of Shredded Mozzarella =4.28
1 Bottle of Spaghetti Sauce = 1.49
1 Package of Pepperoni = 2.84
Total = 10.20
 But wait there's more. We obviously didn't use all of it the first night. We cut the loaf in four pieces (it was a REALLY big loaf) and used two the first night and two the second. We used about 2/3 of the bag of cheese on day one, a tiny bit of sauce, and like 20 pepperoni's making it about $1.50 a serving. This amount more than filled us up, but if you have a heftier appetite, add a salad and you're golden.

The recipe if you can even call it that is plain and simple. Put on the sauce, cheese, and toppings and bake for about 12 minutes or until the cheese is golden at 350 degrees. Let it cool off for about one minute and devour!

P.S. Since you have half a loaf of bread and almost a full bottle of sauce, I recommend making spaghetti with garlic bread the next night to use up some of your ingredients!

Sweet and Easy Caramel Popcorn

Lately I have become a huge fan of the blog Pretty Providence . So when I was looking for a caramel popcorn recipe and stumbled upon there's which you can find here. I was completely over joyed. The hubs and I have become big movie watchers and I wanted to change it up with our usually butter and salt snack. For this movie night it was going to be sweet...

To make the caramel all you need is
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cube of Butter
  • 1 Cup Light Karo Syrup
  • 1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk.
Yep that's it. Melt these four ingredients on medium-high and once it's boiling stir consistently for two minutes and you're done. It's that simple.

For the popcorn aspect Devin and I used our Whirley Pop (which I highly recommend if you love popcorn) We used about  1/2 cup of kernels, popped it and then mixed in the gooey goodness. We had left over caramel so I saved it and we've been eating apples with it for a semi-healthy snack.

Doesn't it look so yummy? It was! So go make some!

I love long weekends.

Devin and I had some fun adventures this weekend. Saturday we headed up to my aunt and uncles for a BBQ and the rodeo. I am a rodeo fan. Country music, fire works, cowboy hats. What more could a girl ask for? Unfortunately for the first time in my rodeo attending life we were rained out. We made it maybe a half hour and it started dumping. Oh well. We rushed back home with my parents and stuffed our faces with zucchini bread and hot chocolate.

Sunday after church we decided we wanted to enjoy the cooler weather and changing leaves and took a drive to the top of my parents neighborhood to get a better view. The leaves hadn't really changed as much as I thought but I did get some pretty charismatic pictures of my family!

If you haven't notice yet my dad is a goofball.
