FunkPops Display! // blogmas day 9

So today, I spent most of my free time catching up on school. But, I realized at 9pm I haven’t written a blog post for the day!

With that, I what to show you guys my new cube organizer I put together all by myself! That’s right no help from the hubs haha! I have been wanting one for a while, but I wasn’t sure how hard it was going to to assemble. I gave in and bought on anyway. This one is from Walmart for less than $30.

It’s a perfect place to display your Pops if you are a collector! Do any of you collect them? I think they are so stinking cute I just want a ton! So far I have Sailor Moon and Luna, Sailor V, Baby Groot, Ana and Olaf, Wonder Woman, Cinderella, Eleven, and BB-8! I’m a little bit obsessed with BB-8 he’s so cute and small. I’m ready for Star Wars to come out already too, I will be first in line lol!

If you don’t know, I am sort of a gamer. I’m on Xbox mostly but I do have a DS as well. One game I am loving right or is Overwatch. I play as D.Va majority of the time because she is the easiest for me. Now when I say I am a gamer, I don’t mean I am good. Haha! I love to play but gosh I’m not the great. I love TitanFall 2 right now as well. Both those games you will probably see me hooked on my days off!

If you are into any game please let me know! I would love to add all of you guys.

I hope this blogmas isn’t too disappointing for you! I promise I will have more exciting post coming along, I got something super duper amazing in the mail I’m itching to try out! And it’s a product I never tried before like at all so I’m excited eeeek!

My Morning Coffee Winter Edition // BLOGmas Day 2

If I don’t have coffee in the morning, I just feel out of place. Even in the winter, I can still drink iced coffee. It can be 30 below and I will have an iced coffee.

I love using my travel mug from Walmart, that says “Eat, pray, slay.” It’s so me haha!

So I put together a couple of my favorite coffee blends I do in the morning before work! (or the night before)

Peppermint White Chocolate (iced or hot)

  • I brew one cup on my favorite coffee, which is Donut Shop Regular mmmm so good!

  • Then, I add me delicious Bailey’s White Chocolate Peppermint Bark Creamer! This creamer is new to me this year, I usual get the Peppermint Mocha from CoffeeMate but I spotted this and wanted to try it. Now I might just buy a couple more to last me the whole winter!
  • After that, you can drink it right away or add a little bit of One Touch Latte Creamer. Seriously, it’s worth a try. I bought it because I had a rebate from my iBotta app (that is worth it too) That is if I am drinking it hot. If I’m drinking it cold, I set my coffee in the fridge overnight and when I am ready to head to work in the morning I add the creamer then.

Caramel Vanilla Swirl (iced or hot)

This is best when cold!

  • Again, I brew my favorite coffee, and then I add 3 pumps of Starbucks caramel syrup I purchased from Walmart for under $6! I can see this as a good gift.

  • I then mix in my Vanilla Almond Milk Creamer. I am lactose intolerant, and I find this Creamer to be very easy on my stomach. If I do use my other creamers, I take my medication.
  • Again, you can have it sit overnight and add your ice cubes or you can drink it hot. I love this cold it’s so refreshing to me.

I add so much Creamer to my coffee it looks a socially like coffee flavored cream lol! But, I hope you enjoy these recipes! I really would love to hear your holiday coffee drinks. I am always ready to try new coffees!

Date Night Meal Idea // Penne With Italian Sasuage

Whoop whoop! It’s date night!

Our town, as I mentioned before doesn’t have a huge selection of chain restaurants. So when we want to be fancy, it always Applebee’s.

Deciding to eat it seems to become more and more of a routine.

Tonight, I am making Penne pasta with Italian sausage! It is so yummy. I usually don’t go for the ground sausage, but I wanted to try something new.

I use the amazing sauce from Sam’s Club that I’m sort of obsessed with. You have to try it, okay?

You can spice up this meal with a side salad or garlic bread!

The sauce stickies right to the pasta and it is so rich with flavor! And I love the spice of the sausage as well. Mmm, perfect combo!


Garlic Bread or Side Salad optional

Penne Rigate pasta

Meat of your choice, we used ground Italian sausage

Pasta sauce of your choice, we used Member’s Mark Romano Pasta sauce

1. First, you are going to want to start to brown your sausage whole you are boiling the penne.

2. Depending if you are making garlicbreqs with it, you will want to preheat the oven at this time.

3. After the sausage is fully cooked, gldrsjn grease and set aside.

4. When the penne has reached the texture you want it to be, drain the excess water. Remove from heat and stir in the sausage.

5. Slowly stir in the sauce with the penne and sausage until it it evenly mixed.

You are done! You can pair your pasta with a nice glass of wine. Or in this case since i’m not 21… Welche’s grape juice!

Don’t judge me lol! Mmm, its so good I even don’t mind eating leftovers. And I hate leftovers. This is a super easy recipe bit it makes for a great romantic meal.
