Reese's S'mores Crumble Recipe

reeses recipe
Not many things are better than roasting marshmallows over a campfire and making S'mores on a cold, crisp night. However, if you don't have access to a campfire, there are plenty of ways to make-do. One way being this amazing and incredibly easy S'more recipe! I added a little twist to it by using Reese's cups instead of Hershey's chocolate. 

This stuff is seriously like crack. I've never had crack, but I'd like to think that this is just as addicting. I really can't stop eating it. I left it in its crumbly form and stored it in a Tupperware bowl so I could pick at it throughout the day. If you want it to look more presentable, you can mash it down into a greased pan, let it cool, then cut it into squares. Either way, I guarantee that it will be eaten up before you know it!

ModCloth Gift Guide

The holidays are just around the corner and I have been "window shopping" for gifts a little bit lately. I'm usually bad about procrastinating until the very last minute on shopping, but this year, I'm trying to get a much earlier start on things. ModCloth has definitely made it a lot easier for me to find the best gifts with their 2014 Gift Guide. It's full of fun things for guys, gals, animal lovers, and pretty much anyone else! I picked out a few of my favorite goodies from the guide to share some ideas. How cute are those mushroom salt n' pepper shakers?!

Over the River and Through the Woods... Grandmother's house, we go.

I didn't mean to go so long between posts, but I've been pretty busy lately. Cody and I just got back from Sioux Falls, SD. We drove up there Thursday for a long weekend to visit my grandmother. I haven't seen her in at least 13 years so it was nice to finally be able to visit. We drove 14 looong hours to get there and the same to get back last night. Needless to say, we're pretty exhausted.

We got to do a little bit of sight seeing during the couple of days that we were there. Falls Park was a really neat area to explore. It was so pretty! The Sioux River and its falls cut right through the middle of the park and was surrounded by fun rocks to climb on. Good thing neither of us fell in the water while we were hiking along the rocks because that water was freezing! I will say, I think I did pretty darn good for a lady carrying a basketball in her belly.

That was most of the sight-seeing that we did. Aside from that and visiting with my grandmother, we did some shopping, eating, and of course, took a chilly stroll around their local zoo. I really wish we could've spent more time in South Dakota, but maybe we'll be able to go back soon.
