Outside my Window...thunder, lightning and rain. The perfect day to stay inside :)
I am thinking...that I'm so proud of myself for sticking to the diet and for having lost 2 lbs this past week
I am thankful for...the wonderful husband and children I have, they make me laugh every day and show me more love than I could ever imagine
I am creating...Fabric purses with some fun summer fabric I have laying around
I am going... to get my driver's licence renewed today
I am wearing...jean shorts, white tank top, slippers
I am reading...just finished Breaking Dawn on saturday night and LOVED it, I also finished "Where Yesterday Lives" by Karen Kingsbury. It was a tear jerker. Now I'm starting "Fame" also by Karen Kingsbury and I have that whole series here at home to read, can'tw ait.
I am hoping...I am actually able to sit at the sewing machine today and get something done
I am hearing... thunder outside, Jasmine playing her game on the computer, Nicholas laughing as he blows bubbles in the living room
Around the house...the dishwasher ready to unload, beds to be made and windows that were supposed to be washed, but with the rain, why bother? LOL
One of my favorite things...Lavender....lavender linen water, lavender body lotion, lavender candles, lavender soap, lavender ANYTHING
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... Just my driver's licence today, the rest of the week we're taking it easy and doing nothing, we're enjoying our last week of summer before kids head to school on the 11th
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...my favorite cake, going to bake it for my birthday on sunday and I thought I would share the recipe with you too. If you've never tried it before, you just HAVE to. Think of it as a birthday celebration with me LOL
1 package white cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare mix
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup milk
1 cup (1/2 pint) whipping cream
1 container (8 ounces) whipped topping, thawed
Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Bake about 35 to 40 minutes or until cake is firm to the touch. Remove cake from oven; cool 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine sweetened condensed milk, milk and whipping cream in a 4-cup measure. Poke holes all around the warm cake, using a wooden skewer or toothpick. Slowly pour milk mixutre evenly over top of holes on cake. Let cake cool 10 to 15 minutes more to absorb all the liquid. Cover and refrigerate cake in pan at least 1 hour.
When cake is completely cool, spread whipped topping evenly on top. Cut into pieces and serve with fresh fruit. Keep cake covered and refrigerated.
