Mom Uniform

Hey Ladies!

Happy Wednesday!

I thought I'd pop on today to share a typical "Mom Uniform" in Erika world.  :)

This leopard sweatshirt comes in a wide variety of colors, is from AMAZON, and is a great price.  I grabbed a medium {in the camel} and I'd say it looks like a sweatshirt but it feels more like a regular shirt.  The weather is kind of all over the place here in Texas so this can be worn with shorts on warmer days this spring and paired with jeans and fur booties on the cold days.  Oh, and the earrings you're seeing ALL THE TIME!

Another peek at my look.

 On this particular day, I forgot to grocery pick-up so I had to run to the store to grab stuff for dinner that night.  This is us at 4:30 p.m. grabbing something super quick for dinner with my favorite shopping buddies.

Sometimes we find creative ways to tackle the checkout line.

What happens when you send three hungry girls to the store right before dinner time.

One of my favorite quick dinners to whip up in the kitchen are these Steak and Wedge Burgers by my bestie, Shay.  Everyone in our family likes them.   I usually make these on the griddle for a quick meal.  I've got no skills on the grill and that way we're not waiting for Tab to get home from work before dinner can even be made, so my tip is I throw all six burgers on the griddle and they're done in no time.  On this particular night, I grabbed that deviled egg tray because my boys LOVE deviled eggs and I'm only making those on special occasions.  I should tell you after our meal there were only two deviled eggs that didn't get eaten!  

I don't know what has happened to me and Ebby Lee.  The last THREE boxes of brownies we've tried to make have turned out weird...like super crazy chewy.  It's like we keep missing the same step or something.  So, this batch of brownies...well, let's just say everyone fought over the middle pieces because the outside pieces could have broken a tooth.  Aren't you jealous of our baking skills?  ha!

Hope you enjoyed a look at my "Mom Uniform" and a family favorite quick meal.

XO

That leopard top is darling, I love those earrings, and now I want to eat a deviled egg.

Try baking your brownies at 325 for about 30 minutes instead of 350. It saves the edges!

Ghiradelli brownies are the best, quick brownie to get! I learned that from Oprah years ago.

I love a good Amazon find! You make everything look so cute though! And those deviled eggs are calling my name...

I know this sounds funny but I have always had issues with making brownies. Love that shirt and those winter boots, too cute!

Hi Erika...I’ve found that brand to be pretty tricky to bake as well. Just a suggestion...try the Ghirardelli brand (you’ll need 2 boxes for a 9x13 pan). They are so, so delicious! We like the double chocolate. They come out perfect every time—and your oven might run a little hot, so set the timer for a couple minutes less than what the box recommends. :)

Ghiradelli Double Chocolate will make you look like the best baker!!!

I can't make chocolate chip cookies for the life of me!!! Soo annoying.

Yes ^ I remove the box kind the moment a toothpick comes out clean. When you want to bake the best, try this recipe ���� https://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/dark-chocolate-brownies/?printable_recipe=11388

Would you size up in that sweatshirt? Since you got a medium? It looks oversize on the stock photo. Right now my mom uniform is the same workout leggings and whatever random tank and long sleeve or sweatshirt I can find. I just had my 3rd baby and going from 2 kids to 3 is kicking my butt big time!
