blog challenge + get fit or die tryin'

I'm a lame blogger and got behind on Kristy's blog challenge. Sorry, Hicks! I'm killing 2 birds here with this one! The one I missed was all about your favorite celebrity crush. My heart gets giddy thinking about mine: Justin Timberlake. I have loved him since 8th grade. I was 13...um, that means I have had this celeb crush half my life! I'm a true fan because I even loved him during his horrible curly, awkward teen, jnco wearing days. (see below and laugh hysterically)

He is beautiful. If I met JT (yep, I shall call him that) I would probably turn in to a blubbering fool. I remember going to school one day my freshman year of high school and 3 of my besties (Alex, Lauren, & Carl) had brought me the *NSYNC board game...I was SO excited! We also got box seats and saw them in concert. Still one of my favorite shows to this day. The boy can dance. So there ya have it, my celeb crush. *sigh...*

Today's challenge is all about sweets! I have a major sweet tooth but am not an avid baker. When I found this recipe for caramel pie I had to try it because it looked SO easy. I made it before Christmas and it was a hit! Ever had the O'Charley's caramel pie? That's what it tastes like..yum!

Here is all you need:
2 cans of sweetened condensed milk
1 graham cracker crust (I used chocolate)
1 container of cool whip

You boil the cans (minus paper on outside) for 3 hours. You have to keep an eye on it because the water will evaporate and you will have to add more. After the 3 hours is up, let the cans cool for a minute or two. Open them and then pour them in the pie crust. It will have turned in to caramel--genius! Refrigerate & then top with cool whip. Voila!

Now that I have shared a very (un)healthy recipe with you, I will share my newest workout video. I just bought the Biggest Loser Cardio Max dvd and I love it! I like that it has 3 different people teaching because sometimes I get sick of Jillian on the 30 Day Shred. It has a warm-up, 3 different levels of cardio workouts, and a cool down. You customize your workout by picking which of those things you want. All you need are 2 hand weights and you're ready to go! I am so motivated to lose this extra weight and tone up. Operation: Get Fit or Die Tryin' is still underway!

I'm totally feeling the love!

Her pie was delish and I don't touch whip cream but I ate it at one of our get togethers! Yum!

I have to give Laura a shout out, she lost ALL HER BABY weight 5 days after having Grayson and she looks amazing in person. :o)

That pie sounds (and looks!) delicious! I will definitely be trying the recipe- maybe as a little Valentine's day dessert.
