1 1/2 c. unsalted roasted peanuts
1 tbsp. peanut oil
food processor (You'll need help from your adult assistant.)
measuring cups and spoons
For smooth peanut butter:
Mix the peanuts with the peanut oil, and pour the mixture into the food processor.
Process the mixture until it's very smooth.
Store your smooth peanut butter in a sealed container in the fridge. It will be good for 2 weeks.
Take about 1/4 cup out of your 1 1/2 cups of peanuts and set them aside.
Mix the rest of the peanuts with the oil, and pour the mixture into the food processor.
Process the mixture until it's very smooth, then stir in the peanuts that you had set aside.
Process a few seconds more to create the chunks in your chunky peanut butter.

You Communicate With Your Body
This isn't as bad as it sounds, it just means that you're a "touchy-feely" person.
You need a lot of affection in your life. And for you, this means both giving and receiving little touches.
Warm hearted, you bond with people easily. In fact, you often feel a little sad when you're not in the company of others.
A little moody, you tend to be controlled by your emotions. But a big hug always comforts you!

Eliza's braclet is made of real pink pearls with little pink swarovski crystals inbetween the pearls with her name in sterling silver block beads. I picked to go with the pearls because I thought they would be a little softer on her newborn skin. The other great thing about these bracelets is that you can add to them as the child grows up and they get bigger!
Now this is the next bracelet I want to get Eliza. Only in a different color.. I mean come on, a girl needs lots of jewelry right?
Not only does Dina make awesome children's jewelry, but she makes the most beautiful women's jewelry too!! Over the past 3 years I have gotten some beautiful pieces - earrings, mecklaces, braclets.... I'll have to take some pictures and add them later...

She makes gifts for all occasions: new baby, new mom, new grandmother, Birthdays, Baby's Baptism/Christening, Communion, Sweet 16, Graduation, etc...She also makes really cute "Big Sister" or Little Sister Bracelts..

Today I am off to my friend Erika's bachelorette party. I am the maid of honor and I have planned this whole event.. I am also very excited that Danielle and Heather from New Mommy Rant will also be attending this party - WooHoo!! Party Time!!
When the lights go down in the city, Harrah's Resort comes alive!Live out your fantasies with us and check your coat and your inhibitions at the door. Xhibition and Eden are their exciting bars located in the heart of the marina.
I reserved a Cabana(they are set up poolside with a flat screen TV, a table, 2 chairs, and a couch. We will also have bottle service in the Cabana so we don't have to wait on the long lines at the bar) for us girls so we can have a nice, relaxing night! What's really fun is that you can bring your bikini and go swimming at night!! There is DJ and dancing... So I'm sure it'll make for a fun night!! I'll be sure to take tons of pictures and post about it after the weekend!!
I hope every one has a fabulous weekend!

“The rules of this award are: SHARE THE LOVE!!! Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. All those that leave uplifting comments on your blog. **All I ask, is that you include a link to this post with the award and ask your recipient to do the same**
As you may have recently seen on my side bar, I have finally created a custom blog award!! I have wanted to do this for a long time but never came up with something that “fit”. I didn’t want just anything. It had to be something that meant something to me. And what could mean more than Sharing the Love by giving you pieces of my heart??
So I created this award in Honor Of The Donor That Saved Noah’s Life. I share this award with those of you whose love and friendship have enriched my life and made my world a better place.
I hope by passing this award around the blogging world we can all help raise awareness of the need for Organ Donation.”

How I love him so......
Blend strawberries in a blender on high until smooth. Place 1/2 cup strawberry puree in the bottom of 4 hurricane or double rocks cocktail glasses. Rinse blender and return to motor base. Place remaining ingredients in blender and blend on high until smooth. Pour pina coladas into glasses on top of the strawberry puree. The puree will run up through the pina colada, making a lava flow effect.
