Jeans on Major SALE!

I love a good deal! 

I was reading one of my favorite bloggers and she was doing an instagram roundup. She posted about some seriously distressed jeans and I loved them. I decided to click on the link since she said they were under $60. When I clicked I saw they were an additional 40% off. I knew I needed to have them! I had a little extra time before going to get the DeetDee, so I ran into Nordstrom quick to try on the jeans. They were on the sale rack and a cute little sales clerk assisted me in finding my size. I am usually a 31 because I love bread, so I asked her to give me that size and a 30 just in case they ran big. I ended up with a 29. YES! 

On major sale right now!

They fit great. I love how they don't feel too constricting like other jeans I have. I love when jeans have some spandex in them. I am curvy and have a tummy. I like control in the thighs and waist but to still be able to walk around and not look like Gumby. 

I also picked up these...

I love these sandals on DeetDee. We bought her the brown ones a year ago and she can still fit them. I bought her the white ones for Easter and for a couple of dresses I picked up on major sale at Janie and Jack. These sandals fit so nice. They come with special instructions on how to shape them to your child's foot. We didn't have to do it though since they fit just right on her. 

The hubby picked her up some new tennis shoes for school. She was in a 6 and really could use a 
6-1/2 but the sales associate told us that children don't have half sizes. We went up to a size 7 and they fit perfectly. Most 7's are too big for her. I will try to blog about the new shoes this week along with the dresses I picked up for her.

Oreo Dessert/MUD

My baby brother loves this dessert. We used to go to my grandmother's house for the summer. She would always make this dessert and we referred to it as MUD. We loved MUD and would eat an entire bowl of it in 2 days. It was the best.

I had a craving for MUD this past weekend, so I decided to make it for my family. While my metabolism will no longer allow me to enjoy MUD in 2 days without repercussions to the thighs and waist line, I was able to share it with the family and get in a few bowls. I mean do calories count on the weekends? Oh to be young again......

This dessert is super rich, so a little is all you need. But if you have kids or just want to indulge, then this dessert is for you.


1 pkg. Oreo Cookies
1 stick of butter (melted)
1-8oz. cream cheese
2-12 oz Cool Whip
1 small instant french vanilla pudding
1 small instant chocolate pudding
3 c. whole milk
2 tbsp. whole milk
1/4 c. sugar

Crush Oreo cookies to a fine crumble. Combine 3/4 cookie crumble with butter. Put into a 9x10 dish, patting down to make a crust layer. In a mixer, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add in sugar and 2 tbsp. milk. Once combined, fold in 1-12 oz. Cool Whip. Place mixture over the crust layer. Whisk both puddings with 3 c. milk. Once combined and with a pudding texture, spread over the cool whip and cream cheese layer. Top pudding layer with 1 -12 oz cool whip. Sprinkle rest of cookie crumble over the top cool whip layer. Cover and Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
