DIY Frozen Hot Chocolate

Now I know that most of you have over half these items in your home already, but if you don’t – they are incredibly cheap! You of course can substitute your milk, creamer and coco mix to your preference but I definitely recommend the chocolate Reddi Whip- It’s a deal breaker!! I picked mine up for $2 and the coco mix was only $1.29! all the ingredients listed above make up to 10+ beverages and it was altogether less than $9 for the items you see (That’s less than 90 cents per drink!! – Talk about a bargain beverage. Skip the drive-thru and hefty prices for your next frozen treat, this is totally worth it!

  1. Fill your blender or bullet (what I’m using) with 1 and a half cups of ice.
  2. Pour 1 cup of milk into the blender (or until it’s just above the ice).
  3. Add a tablespoon or so of French Vanilla Cream (To taste).
  4. Place the lid on and blend until smooth – Add milk as needed.
  5. Pour and top with Reddi Whip. – Enjoy! ♥

As If I Needed A Reason . . . Confessions *

So it’s my favorite Blogging day of the week! Why? Because I don’t have to get all creative. I just get to throw it all up and hope you people consider  my word vomit worthy of the internet. If not, I’m sorry. Not really, but I’ll say it anyhow. Regardless, it’s time to confess:

Confessiona.jpg

So our power went out this morning due to a crazy storm. I would love to tell you that this is the reason I’m not posting until 4pm, but it’s not. I confess: I’m just lazy. After a morning spent living like a pilgrim, I decided to finally use a lighter to get my gas stove top going and make myself some hot water the old-fashioned way. Tea was a necessity. I then took it upon myself to completely remodel my daughter’s bedroom. (Because what else are you supposed to do with no internet, tv, bullet blender, and lights?) It wasn’t until about an hour and a half into this ordeal that I realized the power was back on. By mistake. I moved a lamp across the room and turned it on by habit, -TADA-it actually turned on. My dumb ass would have probably spent the better half of another 5 hours before I realized I wasn’t in the cretaceous period  if not for that lamp. Thank God I’m stupid.

I literally watched a full 25 hours of Pretty Little Liars Season 4 in only 5 days. That’s pathetic. Like seriously, that’s the equivalent of me staying up nonstop for an entire night AND day and not leaving the couch for anything. Or just basically doing nothing for like 5 days (5 hours a day) I don’t even care. I was all caught up for the second episode of Season 2 last night. It was like running my first marathon. #ForLazyPeople. I was so proud, until I realized I had to put up with commercials. Aint Nobody Got Time For That. Not to mention, I have to actually WAIT  7 days for the next episode? This must be what coming off drugs feels like. . . . #FirstWorldProblems.

I had to pay $64.00 for the dry cleaning  that I picked up this morning. WHAT THE F. I don’t even have a career that involves getting suits and pants pressed. I’ve not been this annoyed with spending  money on stupid shit for at least 3 months. I left feeling pretty much like this:

Tomorrow is Day 100 on my 100 Happy Days Challenge. I have NO clue what I should photograph to go out with a “Bang”. I could seriously use some inspiration so feel free to leave a comment or two on what you think would make a great finale!

I wore a dress and heels this weekend that would have looked great on a 21-year-old. On me? Not so much. I mean I can pull off leopard heels from time to time, but platform? No thanks, not EVER again. I also rode a party bus and danced at a club that featured half-naked women in platform cages and extremely loud music that I wasn’t familiar with. It became incredibly clear in a short amount of time that I’m officially not a 20 something, even if I’m entitled to another 1.5 years of 2_. It was an awesome night but for the first time in a long time, a bed, any bed, had never felt so fantastic. But seriously, I’m sticking with skinny jeans from here on out. . . .

I can’t stop making Frozen Hot Chocolates (And NOT From Tim Horton’s This Time!! – (See previous post that explains my past addiction). I came up with a homemade alternative (because I’m a frugal bitch) that is so stupid simple it’s just silly not to make 2-3 a day. Or 4. I am addicted already and I only decided to play around with a few recipes last week. So obsessed actually that I’m using my DIY Thursday post tomorrow to feature a recipe you can make with stuff you probably all have lying around your house already. Check it out if you want in on the affordable goodness that is to come.

On that note I’m getting the hell out of here before the power goes again . . . another storm rolling in! But before I run, let me remind you to head on over to Humpday Confessions with Kathy over at Vodka & Soda – the perfect place to air your dirty laundry.

If that’s not really your style (but seriously, who don’t love a good reason to get it all out), get on over to The Hump Day Blog Hop with Liz at Fitness Blondie, another great way to meet new Bloggers and share your simple selfs!

Cheers,
