Key Lime Pie Kit Kats

Not long ago we had Key Lime Pie M&Ms. M&Ms are made by the Mars Corporation, but Hershey's must have gotten the memo too, because I just found Key Lime Pie Kit Kats.

And now that vaccinations are becoming more common, we're finally able to see people! The kids' cousin Aubrey is here visiting and she loves Key Lime Pie. This is will be perfect! 

I happened to have a couple slices of the Key Lime Pie we made available still, so we'll be comparing it to that. I like that the Kit Kats are a light green color.

Pizza at Home - Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Happy Pizza Day! This week we've got visitors! Aubrey and Rita are here from Michigan! I asked what kind of pizza they wanted today and Aubrey had a special request that I've never made before.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza! I love buffalo wings! Should be tasty!

Rita comes to visit, plus a surprise visitor!

The kids have really been missing seeing family for the past year. Before all this COVID stuff, we would be going somewhere or having someone visit us almost every month! So they were thrilled to learn that their Aunt Rita had received both of her vaccination shots and was going to come pay us a visit! (Forgive the mess, we were in the process of packing up the house and moving).

Fun in the Snow in Colorado

One of the questions Ian had while we were driving to Colorado was "Can we play in the snow?" Driving into the state, we saw that Pikes Peak had a lot of snow at the summit. 

Well Ian, it's almost May, so I'm not sure how good the chances are that we'll be playing in snow before summer. 
Turns out that just 1 week later, temperatures would drop enough that we did have a small snow storm! The kids were super excited to look out the window when they woke up to see big fluffy snow flakes falling down!

We're going on an adventure!

This past year with COVID has been pretty eye-opening for us. It's helped us realize that there's a lot more to life than working, and that we need to prioritize spending more time with family.  

And so, to do that, Theresa and I are leaving our jobs, and we're moving out of California!

Pizza at Home - 8 Unique Star Wars Pizzas for Star Wars Day!

It's almost May the Fourth, which is affectionately known as Star Wars Day. We're in Colorado, for reasons I'll get into in a later post, and we're celebrating with my brother Patrick, his wife, and their daughter. 

Doing a google image search for Star Wars Pizza, I found a few fun characters that people have done before, plus I wanted to tackle a few that I haven't seen any photos of before. I knew there were a bunch of characters I could do, but I think 8 different pizzas might even be a record for me!
Let's jump right into it!

Saturday Morning Cereals - Star Wars Day - Mandalorian Cereal

Happy Star Wars Day! (at least coming up soon, May the Fourth be with you). What better time to try out our Star Wars cereal! 

But what is the name of this cereal? Star Wars? Mandalorian Cereal? Let's call it Star Wars Mandalorian Cereal. 

And look who is on the front! It's the adorable Child! We find out his name is Grogu later, but he'll always be The Child to me. In the background you can see Mando walking towards him. Ian, who has never seen The Mandalorian, was thinking a bad guy was coming to get Grogu, but I explain that Mando is actually the good guy.
