A Newlywed and a REALLY Bad Blogger

Hi friends! I'm sure you have all given up on me and this blog of mine, right? Well, surprise, surprise! I'M BACK! Let me give you a quick update, and I promise there is a delicious recipe at the end of this post.

Here's my big update.....I GOT MARRIED!!!!!

Yes! It's true! I now have a husband, and might I add, he's the most wonderful husband a girl could ever ask for. It seriously rocks to be married. You always have a friend to play with, cuddle with, bake treats with, someone to boost you up on a rough day, someone who takes the trash out (It's a beautiful thing, really), someone who drives the car, lifts all the heavy things, turns off the light at night so you don't have to make a mad dash for the bed if you are afraid of the dark (there really are monsters, I swear), and someone who just loves to hang out with you. Tomorrow we will have been married 2 months!! I can honestly say that these past 2 months have been the best months of my life. Cheers to forever with the coolest guy ever!

Here are a few sneak peak photos from the day.

As you can see, it was a perfect day. We were both so happy to finally be married. It is so much fun being in love with your best friend! Sorry about the cheesiness, I'll move on.

Sean and I really like to make treats on Sunday. Don't you think that treats are completely necessary on Sundays? We do. So, a couple of weeks ago we made this delicious popcorn! The recipe is originally called Snickers Popcorn, but we didn't have Snickers so we made Reses PB Cup and Reses Pieces Popcorn instead. We followed the recipe as is, except we added different candy. So, play with it, get creative, and see what delicious popcorn you come up with!

Snickers Popcorn

(I found the recipe at Six Sisters' Stuff, but they adapted it from Cookies and Cups- I love both of those blogs! Check them out. )

4 quarts popped corn (about 1 cup kernels)
1 cup salted butter
2 cups light brown sugar, packed
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup salted peanuts (we didn't add these)
30 fun size Snickers bars chopped up (or any other candy you want to try)
3 oz melted choc chips

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Pop your popcorn and put popcorn and peanuts in a big brown paper grocery bag.
Over medium heat boil butter, brown sugar, salt and corn syrup for 5 minutes (stirring constantly). Remove from heat and stir in baking soda. Pour over popcorn in the brown paper bag, roll closed and shake well. It blends so much easier than trying to fit it in a big bowl and stir. After the popcorn is coated well, spread onto a cookie sheet. Spread chopped Snickers over top of popcorn and put in oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and drizzle melted chocolate over top of popcorn. YUM!

*If not eaten immediately...can be stored in an airtight container.
