Spring Break! & Dreamy Orange Cheesecake Dip

   The kids are outta school for the WHOLE WEEK for Spring Break! I am so so excited and have plans to………..are you ready for it?


  I want to keep our week free and let them play outside ALL day long!  I want them to run and imagine until their hearts are content, coming in filthy and exhausted for supper and baths.     I want to read with the kids out on a quilt every afternoon, I want to grill Hamburgers and eat out on the picnic table, I have an Easter craft I’ve been wanting to do from Pinterest, and I want to start planting our garden.  But mostly, I don’t want to be busy, I just want to be a stay at home family and enjoy our time together.  🙂   

Now on to the foodie part of all this, fruit dip!  A yummy one!

  This recipe comes from Brandy’s Baking, and it just screams SPRING IS HERE!!!!!!!!!  Which makes me very VERY happy!
