lk designs

Layla Kate is forever asking me to do a craft.

For a month or two last year I was REALLY into making jewelery. I don't have time to do it anymore, but I have all the stuff just sitting in the craft closet waiting to be used.

This craft was by far was the most fun for both of us.

I think I have a little designer on my hands!

Viola~~ St. Patty's Day bracelet.

After all that intense work we were hungry for "cheater banana pudding"

I am ashamed to admit that I love me some banana pudding. I have a killer recipe for banana pudding, but I can't make it because I will eat the whole thing by my self in two seconds flat.

So this is what we do:

Cut up a banana, put some pudding in a bowl, break up some Nilla wafers and sprinkle on top. Add the yummyness of whipped cream {spray some in your mouth too} and then top it all of with sprinkles.

Are there any "cheater" recipes you want to share?

Pretty soon Layla's going to need her own blog to sell her designs on!!

Well...I'm not sure if this is a cheat recipe, but in the sense that it satisfies my urge for desserts, you could call it a cheat recipe. But it's actually healthy, too.


1 cup light/lowfat yogurt
1/2 cup Kashi Go Lean Cereal (I kind of mash up the big clumps)
Fresh or frozen berries.

YUM! Sweet, crunchy, creamy and tangy. All my fav's!!

Following via Friday Follow. What a beautiful family you have. I think it's great when I see such crafty moms. My little one better not be disappointed when she realizes her mother can barely cut paper in a straight line!
