Pigs In A Blanket Recipe

Looking for the perfect party appetizer? Make these pigs in a blanket from www.drugstoredivas.net.My favorite finger food is pigs in a blanket. Invite me to your party and tell me you’re making pigs in a blanket, and you can be certain I will RSVP yes. And then I will eat more than my share of pigs in a blanket because, well, that’s how I roll.

Our New Year’s tradition is having a snack day, and my mom is always in charge of preparing the snacks … which, yes, include pigs in a blanket. This year, though, we weren’t going to see her, which meant I was in charge of making the snacks for me and Pete. Of course, pigs in a blanket were on the menu.

These are also perfect if you’re hosing any upcoming Football Sundays. We host football every week in our garage-turned-home theater, so I’ll definitely be making these again soon.

Tips To Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolution

52 Week Savings Challenge (Free Printable)

A few years ago, I put together a 52 week savings challenge free printable. It’s a printable I like to revive this time every year.

Have you tried the challenge before? It’s a pretty easy way to save a bunch of money. Here’s what you do: Print out the printable below and keep it with your budget. Putting away a few dollars each week will help you save over $1,300 in 2017. You put away $1 this week, $2 next week (week two of the year), all the way until you get to $52 during week 52. That adds up to $1,378 at the end of the year, which is a nice chunk of change to have!

Just follow the schedule for your weekly savings goals. To print the schedule, just click on the image, save it to your computer, and print. You can print it in grayscale and fast draft, so you don’t use colored ink. Look at that. Saving more money already!

52 Week Savings Challenge free printable

Drugstore Divas is filled with tons of ways to save money all year long. We’ve done posts like that since this blog started in 2009, and we will continue to do that into 2017. We are making a few changes though. I want to focus more on ways to life a frugal life rather than ways to get free toothpaste. It’s like dieting. You don’t want to diet, you want a lifestyle change. So this year, you’ll see less coupon alerts and more posts about meals you can cook at home so you’re not blowing money on take out.

I’m really excited about where 2017 is going to take Drugstore Divas, and I hope you are too!

Medieval Times Review

Drugstore Divas received tickets for this Medieval Times review. All thoughts and opinions belong to Drugstore Divas.

Medieval Times ReviewI wasn’t sure if I could do it, honestly. Eat an entire meal with my hands. It just seemed a bit impossible when I thought about it. Soup, chicken, sides, dessert … one napkin. But that’s really what everyone knows about Medieval Times and all I could think about when Pete and I were planning to go earlier this month.

We entered the castle, picked up our VIP Royalty tickets — which meant we got priority seating, a flag to wave, a rally towel, but still no utensils — and sat in the front row. Our host for the night quickly came over to serve us tomato soup in a bowl with a large handle. You could pick it up and sip easily. Utensils really weren’t needed.

Once we got that out of the way, we were really able to enjoy the show. We sat front row center in the yellow knight’s section. He was our main dude, and we were cheering mainly for him, but also for the other two knights on our half of the arena. And cheer we did. There were feats of strength, which were incredible impressive. Six knights were riding on horseback, grabbing rings with poles. It was so cool to watch them and think about how they were actually competing in these games. There wasn’t CGI or stunt doubles around. Sometimes the men would falter, but mostly they would succeed, and that was so much fun to watch.

After that, there’s a full “scripted” portion of the show where the knights joust and fight so one can (eventually) save the princess.

I actually loved it so much that I want to go back again and bring my parents. I know they would love it. Maybe not the eating with your hands part, but they would definitely love the show.

Have you been to Medieval Times?

If you want to go, get adult tickets for $36.95 and children (12 and under) for $29.95 with the code MT3629 through 2/28/17. Get your discounted tickets here.

 

#ad Saturday night fun at #MedievalTimes. Let’s go yellow knight! #USFG

Giveaway: Ornament from Ornaments.com (Ends 1/10)

Drugstore Divas recent this ornament from Ornaments.com for this post.

Win an ornament from Ornaments.comThis is the year where I need a do over. Christmas came and went and, for personal reasons, I didn’t even realize it was on its way. We never bought a tree, we didn’t hang any decorations, and our brand new annual ornament from Ornaments.com is still sitting in the beautiful box it came in.

You win, 2016. I give up.

I think a lot of people feel that same way about 2016 too. It’s the year that will get skipped in history books, ones that parents won’t talk about with their children. Not really, but that’s how it feels! Right? It’s the year we lost Prince and Bowie, our political situation turned our country sideways, and, as someone on Facebook put it, Fidel Castro survived 638 assassination attempts and even he couldn’t survive 2016. So trust me. If 2016 is kicking your butt, I get it.

But 2016 wasn’t all bad. Especially for me and Pete. Our new home was completed in March of this year. We moved in a few weeks after closing, and we have an incredible home now. So that is the memory of 2016 that I will carry with me through the years. And that’s why I picked the beautiful Old Fashioned House ornament. It’s two stories, just like our home, and the banisters match ours too. The ornament glitters, which just is beautiful. We love it. And I can’t wait to hang it on the tree next year.

What about you? What 2016 memory would you immortalize on an ornament?

At Ornaments.com, you have so many choices. You can choose states, sporting events, travel, and more, too. Do you have your eye on a personalized ornament? You’re in luck. We are giving one lucky Drugstore Divas reader a personalized ornament. If you won, which would you pick? Figure that out, and then get ready to enter.

All you need to do is enter via the Rafflecopter form below. The giveaway starts now and ends at 11:59pm EST on January 10. The winner must be a US resident who is 18 or older. The winner has 24 hours to respond to the winning email before another winner may be selected.

Good luck, and happy 2017 too.
