Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend....

Or at least that's what they say!
From a very young age I recall always looking forward to going over to my grandmas house. She was just the best and always made me feel so special and loved! Still to this day she knows just how to hug me & the perfect things to say when I am having a bad day.
One of my favorite pastimes was going over to grandmas house and dressing up in her high heel shoes. I would walk around feeling every bit as gorgeous as any movie star out there! She always had the neatest shoes, and I would clunk around in for the entire weekend.
My Girls Truly are My Very Best Friends!
My daughters are growing up so fast and they love to dress up, and go shopping. They love buying purses, rings and everything glamorous and girly! This is super fun for me as I grew up with only Brothers "who didn't enjoy playing dress up very much" so having daughters of my own now is just great! Watching them as they grow, and define there own personal style is amazing to me. My oldest daughter is a trendsetter, and loves to try out different fads and looks. They had so much fun dressing up & showing off these Big Bling Rings!

Today we spent the day up in the Uinta Mountains of Utah Snowmobiling in all the fresh powder from last nights snowfall! It was sooooo much fun, and should you ever get a chance to go snowmobiling either here in Utah, or in your state be sure to take up the opportunity!
I would like to think of myself as a dare devil, but others would just like this think I am stupid....LOL...Luckily I was the one with the Camera today as I tipped my snowmobile over while climbing up a hill sideways. No damage done, just some darn good laughs at me and my skills!
So with that being said I don't see myself as the world next best snowmobiling champion, but I gotta say it was a hoot of fun! There is nothing like getting on a machine like this out in the wide open and just doing your thing...which mine is 55 mph full throttle!

This past weekend me and my husband set off for a fun filled murder mystery at our cabin. We love getting together with our family once a year and totally hamming it up in costume to really get into our part. This year our dinner murder mystery was held at the cabin. All of the couples arrived late on Friday night and we spent the weekend there. Before departing we were given our parts for "MURDER AT THE PITTS" You can buy the plays for the murder mysteries online and just easily download them to your computer for printing.
My role was a Singer from a very exclusive rock band from the 50's. I totally loved getting into character with the poodle skirt and 6 inch 50's style Mary Janes! My husband was Lou Gumbardo, from the Italian Maffia....No that isn't a fake mustache, he grew it especially for this event!
Our beautiful log cabin nestled in the mountain of Utah.

Just us Girls! The funnest people I have ever been around!

For Dinner we ate the best food I have had in the longest time. Each party was resposible for bringing there favorite mexian dish. I will add the recipes for everyone tomorrow! These are some you will not want to miss out on making for your family! We brought Mexican Fried Ice Cream and it was Delectablely Delicious! Super easy to make and so much fun for a change on the regular ice cream dish!

The recipe for the fried ice cream is below: INGREDIENTS
1 quart vanilla ice cream
1 bottle ice cream topping caramel
1 bottle ice cream topping chocolate
3 cups crushed cornflakes cereal
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 can whip cream
3 egg whites
2 quarts oil for frying

Scoop ice cream into 8 - 1/2 cup sized balls. Place on baking sheet and freeze until firm, about 1 hour.
In a shallow dish, combine cornflakes and cinnamon. In another dish, beat egg whites until foamy. Roll ice cream balls in egg whites, then in cornflakes, covering ice cream completely. Repeat if necessary. Freeze again until firm, 1 hour.
In deep fryer or large, heavy saucepan, heat oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Using a basket or slotted spoon, fry ice cream balls 1 or 2 at a time, for 10 to 15 seconds, until golden. Drain quickly on paper towels and serve immediately.

Top with whipped cream, chocolate & caramel drizzles and eat!
