Happy Fridayyyyyy! Guess what I’m doing today? DRIVING TO MILWAUKEEEEEE. I’m sure you think I’m absolutely crazy when it comes to travel, but I wouldn’t have it any other way at this point in my life. No pets, no kids, no house…time to travel! I’m sure once I hit my 30’s it may slow down a bit (MAY), but for now this is how I like it. Honestly even when I have kids in my life I foresee lots of travel. I moved around quite a bit as a kid (we lived in 5 states by the time I was in 4th grade!) and my parents took us on lots of travel adventures. I think this really helped mold me into the person I am today. Side note: I love love and I try and live as open-mindedly as possible. I feel like the world is going bat shit crazy and the best thing we can do at this point is love each other. IS THAT SO DANG HARD?

Speaking of love. I LOVE MY BLOGGING FRIENDS. I feel like it’s been forever since I did a group post and this month the theme is SHREDDED CHICKEN. If I could get each and every one of these recipes delivered to me, that would be grrrrrrrrrreat.

This lightened up Buffalo Chicken Dip is packed with veggies and loaded with flavor. It is the perfect cleaned up version of your favorite hearty appetizer, that can also be devoured as a main dish, too!
