My first craft from Pinterest to bring in the new year! Before any of my family members freak out..
yes, this involves alcohol. It's my best friends 21st birthdays (they're twins) and I wanted to bring them a little treat! No, I'm not an alcoholic. No, I didn't drop out of college. No, I don't do drugs. I am 21 though.. so I'm allowed to drink every now and then. :)
Now, without further ado, vodka infused gummy bears and worms!
1) purchase vodka (any flavor preference!) I got pink lemonade and gummy bears or worms!
2) Put the gummy bears into a large bowl
3) Pour in vodka so that it just comes over the gummy bears.
4) Just like this.
5) Cover and place in the fridge for 3-5 days.
The end result: well, that was interesting.. the trick to eating these is DO NOT CHEW!
They're very hard to chew, and after about 6 chews it really starts to taste gross.
So, just swallow em' whole and enjoy. I had about 2 and then was done. They looked cute though!
Four more crafts to go!
It's January and everyone is still in 'New Years Resolution' mode so the
gym is packed before the sun comes up and long after the sun hides for the evening.
I keep telling my friends, 'just wait until after spring break, this gym will be empty!' But not for us girls! I got a team discount on the fitness classes that the Ball State Rec Center offers and we all jumped on that wagon! The fitness schedule is easy to work with, as there are classes almost every hour in the evening! The variety of classes is also awesome, we haven't been to the same type of class twice, except yoga because it rocks. Some of the classes offered are Yoga (my personal favorite), H.A.B.I.T. (hips, abs, butt, inner thighs), Cycling, Piloxing (Pilates and Boxing), and Step. I wanted to join a fitness class because 1) I'll be spending my OWN money on the pass, therefor, I'll actually use it. 2) Working out in groups is wayyy more fun. and 3) I'm more relaxed when I'm active, if that makes any sense. AKA I'm in a much better mood.
Yeah, $75 is a lot for a college girl like me but it's
worth it and I'm happy that I went through with it.
2 down, 36 to go!
What better way to start off the new year than baking homemade cookies with your little sister?!
For those of you that don't know me or my sister, SRD, we don't know how to cook or bake.. at all.
This was an adventure before it had even begun and it only got more funny as the baking catastrophe continued. Enjoy the following instructions on how to bake your own homemade chocolate chip cookies.
Step 1: measure out the ingredients.. the hard way
Seriously? She couldn't just open the box correctly?!
Step 2: mix dry ingredients.. preferably with a potato masher
Look, it's all I had, I'm a poor college student.
Step 3: mix butter.. with hands if necessary
I was supposed to melt it apparently.
Step 4: add butter to dry ingredients.. it should look something like scrambled eggs/popcorn
Not exactly sure how it ended up looking like this.. at this point we started to think about
scratching our plan for baking and throwing this mess out.
Step 5: add 234092834 pounds of chocolate chips
Would you like some dough with your chocolate chips?
Step 6: place cookie dough on pan.. not necessarily a clean pan
Lazy, I know.
Step 7: let cookies cool
This is a true test of patience.
Step 8: EAT
Surprisingly they didn't taste too bad!
