This weekend my family and I celebrated my husbands birthday. We did the adult thing and had a nice dinner together.  However, even though we are getting older and don’t have traditional birthday parties anymore I still wanted to make his day special for him. Together we decided that a fun night out with friends was just what we needed. We called up our babysitter, called up our friends and I made snacks.

That’s the funny thing about getting older. . having a fun night out now involves snacks.

Because of my blog I sort of have a reputation for making really great food. Everyone always expects me to wow them when we get together. When we called up my husbands friends each one of them asked if I was making food. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love it.

I didn’t want to let anyone down so I got to work on coming up with something that I thought everybody would love and something that I thought would be different than anything they’d had before. Plus, I had to consider my husbands tastes because, after all, it was his birthday and I wanted him to like it too.

I decided that I would make a dip. . because dips are great for parties. . and I wanted something sweet since we weren’t having a cake. My husbands favorite candy is Butterfingers, but butterfingers wouldn’t go well in a dip. . too hard. Then I remembered the big game commercial I had seen about the new Butterfinger cups available at Walmart. Chocolate peanut buttery Butterfinger taste. . oh yes. . I was on to something!

One of the things I am famous for is my crack dip. It’s a concoction of cream cheese, sugars, chocolate and peanut butter. Changing it up a bit to taste more like creamy Butterfingers was the perfect idea!

I was right. It was perfect. The Butterfinger cups were soft enough to blend well into the dip and the taste was dead on. I served the dip with graham crackers and it was devoured in moments. My husband also loved the taste and had a great time on his birthday. Mission accomplished! 🙂

 I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for OshKosh B’gosh. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating.

 I’ll just say it. The kids and I are ready for spring. This winter is forever going down in my book as one of the worst winters that I’ve ever had. We are all just ready for it to be over. Since there really is not much for us to find to  do these days we decided to keep ourselves busy and go shopping. I must say that I LOVE shopping, but I am also quite frugal. I expect to get great value and that’s why I shop OskKosh B’Gosh for my kids clothing. They always run such great deals and the quality of the clothing is superb.

My kids have style (their own style) and OshKosh B’Gosh gets it. We had no problem agreeing on what to purchase. They loved everything we bought and I must admit. . they look pretty freakin’ adorable.

Here’s what we came home with:

 I simply fell in love with these French inspired bicycle pants! They are navy blue and white and perfect for a spring ride in the park. I wish these were available in my size!

I am pretty sure that every little boy needs a pair of OshKosh B’Gosh overalls. There was no question that we were getting these after he saw them.
 “Mama, I want choo choo pants!!”

This sweet little outfit was perfect for my Jane. She loves anything and everything with polka dots.
