Oyster Cracker Goodness

I like to have different snacks from time to time and recently I have seen this recipe, and really want to try it. Its quick and easy and you can store them for later. there are several out on the web. this one is from the Hidden Valley site.

  • ½ teaspoon of dill weed
  • ¼ cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 bag (16 ounces) oyster crackers
  • 1 packet (1 ounce) Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
  • Optional: ¼ teaspoon lemon pepper or ¼ teaspoon garlic powder


Place crackers in a large bowl. Pour oil over crackers and mix to coat.
Add dressing mix and spices;  and thoroughly mix again until coated.

Bake on cookie sheet at 250°F for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

I am trying this soon! Let me know if you’ve made these before :)

Mishap with Masterlock

Masterlock, why do you play games with me? The combination that is given on the lock should be the one that works, but alas, that was not the case. You are 3 numbers off on the first number, causing me unneeded irritation on not being able to open my lock.  You almost went back to the store to be returned, but my hubby figured out your games. Mess with me againi and you will be replaced.

Watch out for these Masterlock culprits!! They are a sneaky bunch!

Some of my favorite things….t-shirts

I am a t-shirt and jeans kinda girl. I dress up most days for work so when it is the weekend if I am out I am in jeans/shorts, a t-shirt and sneakers.

The “vintage t-shirts” that have been out for awhile are super soft and comfy. So much so that you may see me wearing them over and over (as soon as they are out of the dryer they are on me:)) Once of my favorite places to shop for them is Target (Target takes all of my money), but they can be found almost anywhere.


Below are my 2 favorites for now (always subject to change):

snoopy t shirt

fry guys

There was no  need for me to “vintage” them myself(something I saw on Men’s Health via Pinterest but have not done yet).


Do you have any favorite t-shirts? Have you seen me in mine?

Have a super comfy day :)

Gym humor…December 13

It was a great night at the gym with the girls. We finished Body Pump and two of us decided to stay and do the Step class that was next to get a little more of a workout. The instructor said to do what you can, every week do a little more.

I lasted about 6 songs and then went to put away my step. A classmate came up to me and asked enthusiastically if this was my first step class. I said, “No, I just did body pump prior to this class.”

She said “Well that was stupid.”  and turned and went back to her step.
