How’s life going for you? I hope great, and I mean that sincerely!
Life is hard. Really hard. Like so hard that most days I wish I could just sleep and not have to deal with the real world. It’s tough being a full-time student and working two jobs. It is physically draining, but that’s life. Life isn’t supposed to be all rainbows and sunshine, life is going to throw hard days/times at you. & let me tell you, this is a hard time for me. But I have no choice other than to push through the hard time and keep moving forward, because where is it going to get me if I dwell on everything bad that’s happening? It’s literally going to get me nowhere. Yeah, I got stranded on my campus last night at 9:30 at night because my car wouldn’t start, so I don’t have a working car at the moment. I bust my ass every single day to do good in school. I work over 40 hours a week just so I can pay for my expenses. & I have an immense amount of debt I’ve incurred over the past four years due to loans. But you know what? I can’t dwell on any of that anymore, because dwelling on it has only made me feel worse. It hasn’t helped me one bit. I will overcome any obstacle that life throws at me because that’s who I am. Anyone can overcome any obstacle they face if they just believe that they can.
Also, things could ALWAYS be worse. Remember that.
Sorry, I got a little off subject! Let’s talk about what I made last weekend:
Actually there’s a really funny story behind this.
About a month ago, Zach told me that he wanted to make Puppy Chow. I thought he was so weird for wanting to make Puppy Chow because it’s totally something I only ate during the Christmas holiday. I was like, “babe, why would you make puppy chow? It’s not Christmas.” He goes, “fine, when I make some then you don’t need to have any.” Well, I came home later that day to him eating puppy chow he had made, and all I could think was how am I going to sneak this puppy chow without him seeing, because otherwise he will give me so much shit for eating it. I couldn’t’ help myself, it looked SO GOOD. HAHAHA, typical Aub.
So last week rolls around, and I’m like I want to make some Puppy Chow. Then I thought I could maybe do a blog post on it. & THEN I thought how perfect it would be if I threw a little Halloween twist on to it.
+ Chex Mix Cereal
+ All Natural Peanut Butter
+ Organic Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
+ Dash of Vanilla
+ Lots of powdered sugar
+ Peanut Butter Reese’s Pieces
+ Mini Peanut Butter Cups
(The Chex Mix Cereal has the measurements needed for the ingredients and the steps to follow when making the Puppy Chow. It’s super simple!)
It’s the perfect little snack to munch on when doing homework or watching TV. Just eat it in moderation, don’t eat the whole bag in one sitting like I did. Just pour it into a little serving bowl and munch on that! It would also be a great christmas gift for coworkers or friends. All you would have to do is put a little Christmas spin on it. Instead of using Peanut Butter Reese’s Pieces, you could use the Christmas M&M’s that are red, white, and green. Put the Puppy Chow in a cute little mason jar and tie a red ribbon around it. Super easy, super cheap, and super festive!
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I think I’ll be hitting up a haunted house this weekend, YAY.
We’ll talk soon!
& that fashion post should be up next week!!
