Easiest Potato Soup Recipe Ever

bacon potato cheese

If you have never had baked potato soup you have no idea what you are missing.  Think thick, creamy, velvety soup topped with bacon, cheese, and chives. It is as if you took the best part of baked potatoes and turned them into soup. So satisfying especially if you are living in the 7 circles of Hell we call "winter."

Plus Size Cinderella Inspired Outfit (Disney)

Plus Size Cinderella Inspired
We are planning a Disney World vacation and I am obsessed with all the Disney inspired outfits on Pinterest. I am trying to put a few outfits together for when we go but I have noticed that there are very few inspiration outfits in plus sizes or using plus sized items. I thought I'd experiment a bit with it and here is my first attempt!  Cinderella inspired, I used pale blue (although my monitor can be a bit wonky color-wise), gray, and lots of silver and sparkle!

I plan on having a bit more fun with this idea of Disney inspiring fashion in plus size so stay tuned!

Conversation Heart Cupcake Toppers (Free Printables)

I have more free printables to share with you for Valentine's Day!  This time I used the soft pastel colors of Valentine's Day conversation hearts as my inspiration.  All you should have to do is click on the link below, print it out on card stock or sticker paper, cut out each circle, and attach a toothpick to the back. Done.

 Conversation Heart Cupcake Toppers

I would have printed some out to test it to make sure the dimensions were correct as it should print out as an 8x10 so 8.5x11 card stock or paper should work. However, our printer doesn't work. sigh. Does it ever seem that NOTHING ever works at your house?  I feel like we could spend every day just fixing stuff constantly. Anyway, if it doesn't work please, let me know and I'll resize it.  I am so far from a graphic designer/techy that I can never be 100% sure I have delivered to you what I promised! 


In other news, we didn't get slammed with the epic snowstorm they had predicted. But rather, we have a lovely soft and light snowfall. The roads are plowed and clear but it is very windy so we aren't venturing out today, not even to play. But it is peaceful to watch from out window.

My dear friend stenciled this for me for Christmas. Isn't it lovely?  It is very apropos today, don't you think?

I hope you are warm and toasty!  Enjoy your day!
