Do you want to know what this picture says..............................

It's 11:00 PM @ nite

If my Mommy would hurry

up & STOP making these

Then we could go to bed.....

And the next day

She wouldn't have this.......

She'll learn to listen to me one day!!!!

Bake Sale

So today we had a yard sale/bake sale for our ladies group at church.   And of course I started like Wednesday night baking cupcakes etc.  And as Im sitting there last night making a beach themed cake....with gum balls for beach balls, fruit rings for floaties & water & sand (graham crackers), I'm thinking WHY OH WHY do I do this every time.  Why don't I just make something simple & be done with it!!!!  I tip my hat to the ladies that make something easy when it comes to bake sales.  And then when the cake is done I'm like YES I ROCK!!!  It might be 11:00 at night....and we get up in 4 hours.....yes my house gets up @ 3:00 am (don't ask...we are alittle off and have issues).....but YES!!! cakes & cupcakes have survived from Hoss & they are all ready to go!!!!!!
And then I'm on my way to the bake sale/yard sale at 6:30 in the morning.....after walking Hoss, and making it away from the house without any disaster happening to the cakes.........AND I rearend the vehicle in front of me.  Cuz don't laugh now.....I'm looking in the mirror thinking Darn I hope I don't have raccoon eyes today after 3 hours of sleep cuz Hoss was a pain!!!  Luckily there was no damage to the other vehicle, I just hit their trailer hitch, scraped up the front of my car just alittle & have a goose egg on my head from hitting the visor that has a bunch of cd's in it!!!!  And as I pull into the parking lot..........head hurting, beach cake smooshed up against the side of the box, 2 cupcakes on top of each other....................................I tip my hats to those ladies that do easy things for bake sales!!!  Cuz they are the ones that get more than 3 hours of sleep and don't have to worry about raccoon eyes & now goose eggs on their foreheads!!!!!!!!

Sink Reflections.....

So I got this book today at the library!!!!  I've been waiting & waiting & waiting for it to come in!!!  I'm super super stoked!!!

Have you checked out THE FLY LADY yet!!!!????  Ok so I've started this book tonight!!!!  First thing is to shine the sink!!  And as we speak it's soaking & after it's done soaking I'll be scrubing the outside & top & then we are done!!! 

******Note this is before the top got scrubed!!!!*******

Nanner Pudding Cake!!!

So this is the start of my Nanner Pudding Cake.  I took a yellow cake mix, which I mixed a box of Nanner pudding into....cooked it per the directions on the box in a bundt pan.  (And everytime I say bundt pan....I think of the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding")

Anyways...after it cooled I cut it in half & made a little well  thru the middle of the bottom layer....which I FILLED with Nanner pudding mixed with Coolwhip & topped it with nanners.

Then put the top on....covered with vanilla icing...and then topped with somemore Nanner pudding!!!


See this nice quiet peaceful creek!!!!  Isn't it lovely!!  It's in our backyard & it's my little peace of heaven!!!

But when you add this to the creek....

Here is what you get........

And the's not to peaceful & quiet any more!!!  But we sure are tired after a whole day of playing in it!!!!
