140.0…Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Dip

For my Swap Party Wednesday night, I had everyone bring a heavy appetizer to share. The one I made was a GIANT hit (with Alicia and I at least) because it tasted JUST LIKE our favorite food: Buffalo Hot Wings!!!! If you love hot wings, I guarantee you will love this recipe for Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Dip.

I scored a few great things! One man's trash, is another man's treasure, right!?!

Breakfast yesterday morning was toast with peanut butter and half a grapefruit.

After taking the kids to school, I went to the gym. Then it was errands running, followed by Luna Grill for lunch.

Last night my husband and I attended a private advance screening of the movie "Draft Day." I didn't eat beforehand because we thought they would have food at the event but we were wrong. I ended up with a hot dog and some of my husband's nachos. Not the healthiest but oh well. The movie was really cute and I really enjoyed it! I love football and it was interesting to see the ins and outs of draft day. 

This morning after I dropped the kids off at school, I volunteered for a bit, then met everyone at Lisa's house to celebrate Silvana's birthday with a little breakfast! Everyone brought something delicious.
