Then take around 3/4 of a small tub of ricotta cheese and mix it in. My mom uses the whole tub when she makes this, but I prefer less because the whole thing will start to taste like ricotta.
Then add a whole jar of whatever type of sauce you'd like to use. I use Ragu traditional spaghetti sauce and it tastes yummy! Throw a couple of handfuls of shredded mozzarella on top.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. While baking go comfort your puppy that is feeling traumatized from all the vacuuming...

Max got really sick Thursday night and spent all day Friday and then again all day Saturday at the vet getting fluids, so I've been taking care of him. I was really worried about him and ended up calling my mom Sunday morning crying because I wasn't sure if he would pull through whatever was wrong. He hadn't eaten in 3 days, he was refusing to drink, he was extremely lethargic, and TMI...but his bowel movements were basically just blood. The vet didn't know what was causing it or why it happened so quickly, but he had Max on a ton of meds. My parents came over Sunday afternoon and let me sleep for a little bit (I was up around the clock with him for 3 days trying to get him to eat or drink and making sure he got outside to throw up and go to the bathroom) and my dad finally got him to eat some of Maddy's food. We had tried everything but her food, so I'm glad my dad tried it. Once he started eating, he slowly started getting better and after getting more fluids Monday, he got the IV removed and is pretty much back to normal today! Woohoo! My 10 lb little boy lost a couple pounds, but I think he'll gain it back since he's eating pretty much regularly.
So now that everything has calmed down, I hope to catch up on all your blogs!

'I wish' .... I had the startup funds to build that company I have always dreamt about, and it would be _____! "An office supply store/dog bakery!"
I absolutely adore office supplies:
I just think it's so hard to find cute office supplies in one place. Sometimes you can find them at Target or little boutiques, but I would have everything from file folders with patterns, to fun pens, and binder clips, and staplers, and phones...I could go on and on! I also would offer classes targeted at twenty-somethings like what you need to know when buying a home, the best way to file all your important papers, how to make a budget, etc. I would have loved to be able to go to a cute, funky store with other girls my age and learn about that stuff (especially the whole home buying process cause it's stressful!)
So that stuff would be on one side of my store and on the other would be a dog bakery! I love places that make healthy treats for our pups, but they are so few and far between where I live. I want to get Max a birthday cake, but I only have one place to choose from so I'm stuck with their prices, recipes and designs...
I think this is such a cute set-up!
I totally get that these two themes don't typically go together, but I think it's a neat combo...lots of women my age love organizational stuff and they have puppies, so you could cross two errands off with one stop!
If you want to participate in all the fun, hop over to Kelsey's blog!

I really, really wanted to order a large pizza for dinner tonight. Actually, I still want to order a large pizza for dinner. But instead of giving in to that urge, I made this:
Looks yummy right? And just to prove that I actually ate it instead of sneaking slices of pizza:
I finally mailed out my giveaway prize:

I have to say that I am absolutely IN LOVE with this article of clothing. I wore it the entire weekend and while it's a wee bit too small, I'm still wearing it like there's no tomorrow. It fits fine, but it's a little tight across the girls, so I figure if I drop 5 or 10 pounds, it'll be a perfect fit!
So now that I know the quality of clothing is good, delivery is quick, and it's just my style....here are a few more items I'm tempted to purchase:
