DIY Halloween Doughnut Treats

When I was in grade school my Mom was always doing the most when it came to being class Mom. I remember those kindergarten parties like it was yesterday. As class Mom, it’s your responsibility to impress all the other Moms that might show up to the Halloween party. A lot has changed over the last few years and for some odd reason folks are just much busier and busier these days and don’t have time for creating those cute little baked goods for each kid in their son/ daughters class. Moms, Look no further…I have just the perfect, easy, inexpensive and (most importantly) FUN way to do so without breaking the bank (Under $10.00).

It’s simple. We picked up a dozen Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnuts , a set of plastic vampire teeth and a box of eyeballs.

Step 1: Squeeze the plastic teeth shut and insert them into the center of the doughnut.

 Step 2: Push candy eyeballs into the doughnuts above plastic teeth.

Super simple, so simple you could event let the kiddos help out. What teacher doesn’t love sticky fingers?! I grabbed a few sprinkle doughnuts and cupcakes for safe keeping.Who knows, there might be so picky kids in your daughter’s class.

If you try this project, we’d love to see the end results. Use the hashtag #EGCcelebrates when posting your photos on Instagram.

#EGCdoescollegefootbal Part 3

When I set out on my #EGCDOESCOLLEGEFOOTBALL journey a little over a month ago, I never imagined where it would lead. After going to 2 Alabama games within a 3 week period all my Auburn friends were beginning to think I didn’t love them. As soon as V, our summer intern at Evan and Company, saw my first video she immediately invited me to an Auburn game. I thought it was only fair I took my sister along (she’s a HUGE tigers fan). We started our Saturday with a little tailgate fun and tiger walk. I’d been to walk of Champions, so it was only fair I showed my respect to Coach Gus. Sir, you looked fancy in that suit. 2015-11-27_0001 A tailgate party is not complete without custom Auburn Sugar cookies from Liger’s Bakery, right? Did you know Liger’s is over 70 years old. It’s Montgomery’s oldest bakery. Just a little fun fact for ya.  2015-11-27_0002 After we drank and ate our little hearts out, it was game time. I think the coolest part about the game was seeing that eagle fly around the stadium. It was magical. For Real. 2015-11-27_0003  Of course, I would be chopped liver if we left out the cutest mascot of them all… AUBIE THE TIGER. Life Goals, a photo with Aubie. Can anyone make that happen? PLEASEEEEE. I’ll buy you a funnel cake. 2015-11-27_0004 What would we do without our iPhones. So glad we ran into by best bud Jonny and his sister, Emily at the game.  2015-11-27_0005 I can’t explain how much fun we had this past weekend in Tiger town. It was a BLAST. I know what you you’re all intereted in… it’s below, I promise. My video re-cap of my LOVE-HATE relationship with AU/AL  football. Enjoy!Thanks to Mrs. Lori and Victoria for hosting my sister and I. We had a blast! Tiger Town, I’ll see you this weekend. Who’s ready for #IRONBOWL15

Tasty Tuesday: Quick and Easy Guacamole

I have always hated guacamole. I remember as a kid my Dad trying to encourage me to taste it when we would  go to a Mexican restaurant for dinner. The color, the texture– GROSS! Mom recently made some though that changed my mind. It was DELICIOUS. If you’re looking for that perfect game day dip, look no further. I promise you won’t regret giving it a try. I have listed all the ingredients and step by step instructions below.

#EGCgetsfit: I Lost a Bag of Potatoes

Friday was a good day. Actually it was a GREAT day, Why? Because I finally hit an #egcgetsfit milestone. I’ve officially lost 10 pounds. Yes, ladies and gentlemen you’ve heard right– TEN POUNDS!! That’s an entire bag of potatoes.  2014-02-08_0006 If you follow me on Instagram you are well aware of my “almost” weekly #egcgetsfit posts. My friends and I sat out at the beginning of January to get in shape. We were tired of being over weight. So far so good– We’ve been pretty successful. I think I am most proud of the fact that I have lost 10 pounds doing it the right way. Exercise and Eating properly. I have tons of folks trying to get me to try this shake and this powder and this 20 day challenge blah blah blah, but I refuse. EGC is doing it the right way!

For those that are interested, I do at least an hour of cardio a day. The treadmill is my best friends. I run afternoon while watching the Ellen Show. I also rotate 3 days a week with weights. It’s not easy, I’m not even going to lie. Somedays I would much rather eat a cheeseburger and drink a coke (ok! I might have once or twice) but discipline is the key to weight loss success.   2014-02-08_0005 Thanks so much to everyone who has been supportive along my journey thous far. I’ve got a ways to go, but I’m well on my way! I can’t wait to try out some of those yummy recipes you guys have emailed me. A HUGE thanks to my friends for holding me accountable.
