Girls' Night Recap & an App Recipe

Can I get a hollaaaaa--
It's Thursday!
Last night Matty hosted our monthly Girls' Night.
It was much needed and so fun!
Brooke decided she wanted to look super stylish
& trendy..
 Sweater dress: ON
Jeggings: Carter's
Booties: Grandma Delle Fave
You're getting me all dressed up 
and we're not going any where for another few hours??
 I dunno about this ma.
I look a little too grown up,
don'tcha think??
 Baby boooooooties!
Yea, I need to rest up for Girls' Night.
 I was in charge of an appetizer 
Bacon-Cheddar Pinwheels
{recipe below}
Kristin made a salad
Alison made dessert: Orange Cake with buttercream frosting
and in honor of St. Patty's Day Matty prepared
Corned beef, cabbage, potatoes & carrots!
We each shared the happenings in our lives and laughed.
They took turn loving baby Brooke.
Alison getting her baby fix:
rocking her to sleep like a champ.
Somehow we ended up talking about bats--
and one thing led to another and well,
Kristin flipped out and asked me to play
"The Booty Song"
to help her get her mind off the disgusting bat talk!
I heard this song the other morning while dancing around
putting makeup on...
Don't tell me you don't dance around too!
Anyway I thought it was a catchy stupid song.
Yes, the title is:
Once again, it was a fabulous night with fabulous friends!
I love my girls!!!!
For my appetizer I tried to go "easy"
Which means, I should have known I'd mess it up.
I suck at 'easy' dishes.
I mess them up.
I don't know why.
Recipe adapted from my free Pillsbury Calendar
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated seamless dough sheet
2 tablespoons ranch dressing
1/4 cup cooked real bacon pieces or 4 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled
1/2 cup finely shredded Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
1/4 cup chopped green onions (4 medium) 
***However, I think it needed more Ranch, more cheese 
and I think the seamless dough would be hella easier. 
I should have had 2 long rectangles, not 4 short
made for odd rolling.
Spread the dough out, pinch together the perforations.
Spread the ranch dressing all over.
Sprinkle the green onion.
Have 4 pieces of bacon cooked.
 Crumble bacon on top.
Add the cheese:
{again, use more!}
Roll up...
Slice and bake @ 350 for about 11 minutes
They don't look too purrdy.
And eat.
 They were good.
Nothing to write home about, but simple to make and transport.
I think they'd be better with more ranch and cheese though.
Next up:
Kristin's in April and I am bringing a salad!


  1. Those baby booties are SO fabulous. Brooke's a little fashionista already (just like her mommy). I dance around to music at home all the time. I also use music when I want to relax or any time really. Your pinwheels look awesome. Sometimes simple recipes are the best.
