Box Mix Caramel Apple Cookies

Posted on

I love anything caramel apple! My favorites being the caramel apple shake from Steak-n-Shake and caramel apple pops. When I saw this box mix for caramel apple cookies  at the store, I knew I had to make them! They have a great apple flavor and a hint of caramel.

Just follow the directions on the box to make these cookies!

Stir together the mix, eggs, and slightly melted butter.

I ended up using a mixer to get it all incorporated into a dough. Then used my hands to make sure it was well mixed into a dough.

Bake in a preheated oven until golden.

 I have a from scratch recipe for caramel apple cookies that you check out here. I love this recipe because it is very easy to make.

Fabric Scrap Wreath

Posted on

Are you college football fans? We bleed Georgia red and black in our house and today I’m sharing this adorable fabric scrap wreath I made for college football season. You can use any team colors, but like I said we are Bulldogs in this house so I went with red and black

Here’s what you need:
a wire wreath form
two or more colors of fabric
scissors
wooden plaque and letters (optional)

Take your fabric and cut it into strips. I didn’t measure mine but if you would like to measure them then decide what size you would like and cut them to size.

I didn’t get a picture of the next step but it is pretty self explanatory. Tie the strips onto your wire wreath form until it is full and fluff it out! This didn’t take as long as I thought it would! I watched baseball on Saturday and Sunday afternoons with Mr. RCGG while tying fabric strips!

Next I painted the outer edge of my wooden plaque red and then center black. The letters were painted white. I also took a pencil eraser and dipped it in red and black paint to make polka dots on the letters.

 

I attached the letters to the plaque with glue dots and separated a spot on the wreath form so that I could hot glue the plaque to it. I’m going to be honest with you! The hot glue didn’t stick very well, so I was going to use some E6000 glue. I didn’t have any. So I used duct tape to attach it. It sticks, but not very well. I still need to get the E6000 glue and reattach the plaque to the wreath.

 The best thing about this wreath is that you can make it for any season or sport! Football, baseball, summer, spring, winter! Whatever you want it to be!

I hope you enjoyed how I made my fabric scrap wreath! I certainly enjoyed making it and I know it will be on our door all through University of Georgia football season and maybe longer!

Blogger Spotlight

Posted on

Over the next few months, I going to be spotlighting some great bloggers. Every week throughout the month I will share a link from that month’s blogger on Facebook and Twitter. This month I’m spotlighting Kira from A Day in the Life of Mrs. T. I’ll let her take over now:

I’m Kira…a Soldier by day, mama and wife by night.  I’m married to my BFF and we have 3 boys (13, 2, and 1 one the way)  We also have 3 dogs who all think their lap dogs (the smallest is 70 the largest is 180).  I love to travel. I lived in Germany for a couple of years several years back and loved it.  We try to travel and see as much of the world as I can.

Over the years I’ve taken up Wogging (my version of running/walking) I’ve completed a little over 25 races (several 5ks, 1-10k, 12-half marathons and 4 full marathons).  I am not fast by any means but for some reason I just like to go out there and do them.  After Baby #2 arrives, I plan to actually put out a little bit of effort just to see what I am capable of…we’ll see how that works out, lol

 Why I decided to blog…

 

There are a million and one blogs out there and I don’t expect mine to be on a top 10 list by any means, heck I just took a month hiatus so I doubt that gets me onto any readers list. But that wasn’t my goal…the main reason I decided to take up blogging is something to fill the time while my husband was/is deployed.  Working all day and hanging out with a 2 yr old and 3 dogs at night…doesn’t spark a lot of conversations and social interaction.  I have been very luck to meet some awesome ladies over this past year through blogging.

So I’m not a fitness,fashion,lifestyle blogger…I’m a jack of all trades master of none J

Thanks so much for letting me spotlight you this month Kira! I hope you enjoy your spotlight month!


Fall Blog Plans

Posted on

The reason for my blog break was to plan out what I wanted to do for Random Crafty Georgia Girl during the fall! I have been planning so many things that now I’m excited about them and I hope you are too!

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. The colors, the cooler temperatures, caramel apples, pumpkins, and Thanksgiving. Plus it leads right into the best holiday of all, Christmas!

So in addition to The Southern Special I am  putting together a little extended fun up until Thanksgiving. Each week I’m going to show you some great fall recipes, crafts, and decor. I have always wanted to learn how to make pies. Last year, I made my first pumpkin pie. It wasn’t the prettiest thing, but it tasted good! That’s what matters right?! This year, I’m making the pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving again, but I wanted to make an apple pie before that! I mean what’s fall without going to the apple orchard. Fresh apples are great for making pies! I’m excited!!!!

So, over the next three months I will be making and posting recipes, crafts, decor, and family fun all with a fall theme! The recipes will be your typical fall comfort foods, like soups, stews, and chilli! Every year, I make chilli for what was my Poppy’s birthday. He had chilli and pumpkin pie as his birthday dinner every year! You didn’t even have to ask him what he wanted because you already know what he would say! Haha!

I’m looking forward to sharing the recipes and projects with you!

The Southern Special 21

Posted on

You might notice something a little different in this week’s edition of The Southern Special. Mandy is no longer co-hosting with us! She decided to take a leave of absence from blogging to spend some much needed family time! She very recently moved to the beach and has realized that blogging is in the back of her mind and wants to spend the time that God gave her with her family! I totally understand that! Family is very important in life and we should always take time out of a busy day to celebrate them! I wish you all the happiness and love in the world Mandy! May God bless you all!

So Dawn and I are looking for co-hosts! Please contact one of us for details if interested!

Blog Break

Posted on

Over the next week I will be taking a break from my blogging! I need to regroup and think about the direction I want to go in my blogging! I have some ideas with what I want to do but I need to clear my head and go offline before I can set them in stone! I will still participate in the Southern Special link up every week, but I wanted to give you a heads up if you don’t see me too much besides that!

 

Here’s a fun Fall 2014 bucket list I made for things I want to do this fall!
