Perfect Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Anna is back with pumpkin pie oatmeal. Fill 'em up, Anna. Before I got married, I never cooked. I ate like a semi-health conscious second grader living in a frat house. Bob Evan’s refrigerated mashed potatoes for breakfast, a bag of Steamables brown rice for dinner (it all evens out, right??). I had once been bamboozled into making brownies from a mix while volunteering at a church youth retreat, and my heart nearly stopped from the anxiety of having to MIX STUFF UP and put it in an O … [Read more...]

  Disclaimer: Obviously these are not my top five of all time. I don't think I could ever do that. It's not that I am a music nerd or anything, it's just that I am afraid of commitment - unless it's marriage, or children, or anything in the clearance aisle at Target. I just typed "isle" instead of "aisle." I mean, how amazing would it be if there was a Target Clearance Isle? Moving on. Video Warnings: total swears. Maybe in all of these songs? Just watch all these videos … [Read more...]
