homemade chocolate ice cream

Happy Friday! I can't believe we are so close to the 4th of July! I feel like after the 4th time really flies by and it will be time to decorate for Christmas! The ice cream picture is a recipe I shared a few years ago. Here's the link. If I were artistic I'd have so much fun doodling with chalk like this! I'm not artistic though!! Here is a great list of summer salads. I'm sure there's something on there for everyone. We didn't get a hospital blanket for Grayson but if we had I would be doing this to it. So sweet! Red, White and Blue drink! I shared a delicious recipe for … I'm not finished reading yet...

Fruit Pizza

fruit pizza

Fruit Pizza-delicious sugar cookie crust, cream cheese base loads of fresh fruit and a fruity syrup drizzled over the top. Perfection on a pizza plate! Fruit Pizza is a great summer dessert ora great treat to make for a shower or party.  There are tons of fruit pizza recipes out there and lots of them are easy semi homemade kind. This one is not semi homemade. The dough is the real deal! Also, the creamy base is delicious and then you top all the fruit with a syrup made from the fruit juices!! Heavenly! I made this fruit pizza for us to have for dessert one weekend and we loved it. … I'm not finished reading yet...

This & That

My sister in law snapped a few photos of us back at Easter. It's taken me this long to edit and share any of them....there's just not enough hours in the day.  Grayson and I spent a few days in Illinois this week. Jason worked a lot of hours because of an upcoming deadline so we are glad to be back home and all together. We had a great time! Currently sipping on some iced coffee I bought at Aldi and it is really good!! Amazon is buying Whole Foods. This could be interesting! These chicken skewers look delicious! Since it's Fathers Day weekend how cute are these BBQ … I'm not finished reading yet...

S’mores Cups

s'mores cups

S'mores Cups-all your favorite s'mores ingredients but in bite size pieces and without the camp fire.  I'm sure I've made it known before, but I love s'mores. If there is s'mores dessert around I am going for that before anything else.  S'mores Cups was something I made for a few get togethers a really long time ago. Like, when Jason and I had only been married a year or two.We … I'm not finished reading yet...

butterfly on flower

The butterfly exhibit at the zoo is really cool! You can't take strollers through and since I had to carry Grayson he wanted to grab the woman's backpack in front of us and play with the zipper and then all the flowers and the butterflies he wanted to grab. Which is a big NO, NO! It was still fun to walk through though though.  The new season of House of Cards is available on Netflix. We … I'm not finished reading yet...

Sparkler Cupcakes

I can't believe I am sharing a 4th of July recipe, but it is less than a month away. I don't know how that's possible...July is also my baby's birthday month. I am about to have a one year old!! Excuse me while I go cry for a moment. Seriously, it's been a great year with Grayson and I'll just write a blog post on it because there's plenty to say. Back to the cupcakes, shall we? I doctored … I'm not finished reading yet...

Grayson zoo

Happy Friday! Isn't funny how a short week doesn't feel any shorter? If anything it feels longer. Womp, Womp! It's a crying shame we don't take any pictures of this boy!!! HA! You'll remember more of your vacation if you do this.  We got our zoo membership and will be visiting very often. Grayson seems to really enjoy our trips so far. On Wednesday when we got there I said, "are … I'm not finished reading yet...

Boneless Grilled Chicken Breast

easy boneless grilled chicken breast

Boneless grilled chicken breast can be juicy and delicious every time with the right preparation and cooking techniques.  Without the proper preparation boneless grilled chicken breast can be very dry, bland and boring to eat. We eat a lot of grilled chicken, and especially now that it's grilled season there's no better way to cook it. A lot of people don't like leftovers but in our … I'm not finished reading yet...

flowers in old tire

Happy Friday! My week is thrown off since we stayed in Illinois until 4:00 a.m. Tuesday morning...Jason had a work thing on Monday and we decided not to drive back Monday evening but we needed to leave early enough so he would be at work on Tuesday morning. Yeah, I think we are still recovering from that! That's my mother in law's tire with the flowers in it that she has on their fence. I think … I'm not finished reading yet...

DIY Patio Table

diy patio furniture

I'm excited about today's post because it means my DIY patio table is done!!  In the early spring I saw a picture of a patio set and I loved the table and thought it would be useful for our patio area. It was around $200 and I thought that was pretty steep for this particular table. So what do I do next? Did a little research and after a few weeks I finally found what I wanted in an outdoor … I'm not finished reading yet...

My grandma use to make chocolate sheet cakes for birthdays and get togethers at church. Chocolate Sheet Cakes are nostalgic for me. I use to get … I'm not finished reading yet...
