Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

This dip is SO simple to make, but trust me, it's delish. I found it here.

In a crock pot, mix:

-One 8 oz. package of cream cheese.
-1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.
-1/2 cup of Ranch dressing.
-1/2 cup of Frank's Red Hot Sauce.
-One 12 oz. can of cooked chicken, drained.

Cook on HIGH for one hour, then turn to low to keep warm. Serve with celery sticks and crackers. Enjoy!

Music Monday

My brother always keeps me in tune with the latest music and for Christmas he got me a bunch of great music to keep me awake during my drive back to Indy.

My favorite is The National's High Violet. Download "Sorrow," I like it because it has some great piano melodies in it.
He also gave me The XX's self-titled album. It's very mellow and a little different from what I'm used to, but I loved it all the same. Check out "Islands."

Here are a few other songs I've been loving lately:

Miike Snow -- Black and Blue
Empire of the Sun -- Walking on Dreams
Passion Pit -- Little Secrets

Mont Tremblant

Last weekend I spent the days snowboarding in Mont Tremblant which is about an hour and a half north of Montreal. My boyfriend, a few of his friends and I were lucky to rent a very nice chalet close to the hills. The skiing there definitely beats anything we have in the Midwest, and I hope I can go back next year!

Here are some photos from the trip:
The first day was -22 degrees on the summit!
