I was lucky enough to be able to attend Ellen Noel Art Museum Community Art Day this past Saturday. The special guest was UTPB's Pots n' Prints. Pots n' Prints is a mobile ceramic and printmaking workshop and they showed up with a bunch of helpers and all of their materials, machines and tools to help people of all ages create beautiful art work!
Kids were able to make make cards, ceramics, t-shirts, prints with a REAL printing press and all kids of things. The best part is, it was absolutely free!
This was my first time to the museum so I have a lot left to see, but, if you have yet to check out Community Art Day it's definitely worth the trip! The kids and even the adults all had such a blast learning new art techniques. Plus, everyone got to go home with their own custom-made valentine!

Have you ever been really bored and wondered to yourself... Hey, is titanium bulletproof? No? You haven't wondered that? Congratulations! You are probably a sane person who does sane things. The same cannot be said of the guy who runs a YouTube channel that is literally called "Demolition Ranch". Where he basically just destroys things with guns... it is pretty awesome. Well in his latest video he got a solid block of titanium that they use in all sorts of high-quality armor and continues to shoot at it with larger and larger guns with larger and larger bullets. So even if you weren't wondering if Titanium was bulletproof... now we know for sure. I won't spoil what happens but it is definitely worth watching until the very end.
Susan Sarandon stepped out Saturday night at the SAG awards with her beautiful daughter Eva Amurri Martino. Both ladies looked absolutely gorgeous....so what's the big deal?
Apparently many tweeters had an issue with Susan's low cut shirt! KFC wrote, "Susan Sarandon just lettin em hang tonight!" @DougBenson tweeted, "Susan Sarandon looks rack-diculous. #SAGAwards2016." (Pulse of Radio).
I happen to think she looked AMAZING! If I look an ounce like that at 69, I'd consider that a win! Check out her outfit for yourself:
I made this for the first time yesterday and was surprised at how quick and delicious it was. Plus, minimal clean up was required because the majority of the dish comes together in one pan…besides the pot used to boil the noodles. Here is my recipe for One Pan Creamy Chicken Alfredo!
4 cloves garlic minced
4 tbs flour
1 cup parmeasan cheese
1 cup parsley chopped
1 stick butter
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 pack boneless, skinless chicken tenders
2 tbs lemon juice
salt to taste
pepper to taste
red pepper flakes to taste
1 pack pasta of your choice
Cut stick of butter in half and melt in pan. Add chicken, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, 1 tbs lemon juice and red pepper flakes. Cook until chicken is done and garlic and butter is slightly browned.
Remove chicken from pan and set aside leaving excess butter, garlic and parsley in pan.
Add second ½ stick of butter to pan.
Melt down the butter then add heavy whipping cream, 1 tbs lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Slowly whisk in the flour.
Once the flour is whisked in and NOT CHUNKY, add in the cheese.
Pour sauce over pasta of your choice and top with chicken and enjoy!
This little princess is about the most adorable thing ever... Not going to lie, this reminds me of my little girl singing this same song. Makes me remember my husband rocking my little girl & singing "Kiss The Girl"... I might cry now.
In a week, this little mermaid's video has almost 300k views! You go Claire! Pretty sure that I want to grow up & be Claire. :)

This song is so special to me. I really wanted a video that showed the universality of the message of Humble and Kind. Thanks to Wes Edwards for executing this vision and to Oprah Winfrey for lending us scenes of Belief from all over the world. I hope you like it as much as I do.
