I’m on my way to San Diego today. I’m up bright and early to catch a flight. I’ll meet with the Executive Teams of our San Diego hotels, then jump back on a flight so I can make it home before Kelsey goes to bed. I’ll be in San Diego for a total of 8 hours. I hope […]

Yesterday I had a date with my girlfriend, Teri. The plan was to visit the fabric store for “Mickey-themed” fabric for Kelsey’s 2nd birthday. We found this amazing red and white polka dot print (a la Minnie’s dress) that is going to work perfectly for my tables (more on that later). As I arrived at T’s house, […]
For anyone with small children, I’m pretty sure that if you downloaded this free Valentine printable and wrote “I love you more than 8 hours of sleep” – your spouse would 175% understand how deep your love is. Ask me 2 years ago? I would have written, “I love you more than sushi. Or wine. Or red […]
Superbowl Sunday is coming our way, which means tons of dips, chips and people gathered around the big screen. Well, my dear, I have the perfect dip for you. It’s incredibly easy to make (says the girl who can barely boil water) and it’s delicious. Here is my mother-in-law’s recipe for Chicken Enchilada Dip.
Preparation time: 9 min (I chop slow) | Cook time: 30 min
- 2 (12 oz) cans chicken breast
- 1 (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
-4 oz Mayo
- 4 oz sour cream
- 8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
- 4 oz can diced chilies (I buy the El Paso canned chillies)
- 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
Instructions (can you handle how easy this is?)
Mix all together. Put it in a 9×9 dish. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes (or until it bubbles). Remove from oven and sprinkle a little cheddar cheese on top (just to make it look pretty). Serve with tortilla chips.
I’m not lying when I say everyone loves this dip.
I serve the dip in the 9×9, but you could dish it into pretty bowls, like this. Nana’s Tortilla chips are the perfect pairing. Enjoy!
I’m convinced Kelsey’s heart is made of gold. She’s too wonderful. Too giving. Too precious and way too nice to be a normal child, right? She’s a dream. Terrible twos? Nope. Not over here. Well … sometimes.

Spencer won the largest dog ever in Disneyland. He was playing a baseball carnival game when he scored big! Not too surprising to me, Spencer has yet to meet a sport that he can’t excel at. He’s gifted in that way. Want to know how he did it? Look, it’s this simple. First you wind […]
While daddy mowed the lawn and Logan played with his ball, Kelsey and I sailed across the backyard. We went this way, that way, up and down. Not sure what we were searching for, but we were enjoying every moment out at sea. She is the cutest captain I know.
