Baker's Review Wednesday 45: Pudding Salad

Pudding Salad

2 3 oz. pkg.instant vanilla pudding
2 cups milk
8 oz cool whip
sliced strawberries
halved grapes

Whisk the pudding and milk together.  Fold in the cool whip.  Mix in the sliced strawberries and halved grapes.  Enjoy!!


These pictures don't make it look like the best thing ever, BUT , it is sooo delicious!  It's a super easy and simple recipe to make and it's yummy.  Yes, you should try it!


By the way, I'm not going to be doing a link party for Baker's Review Wednesday anymore, as not that many people link up, and the people that do link up, I read their blogs anyways:)  But, if you do want to do Baker's Review Wednesday still, you can, and you can put a link in the comments if you want.

Hope everyone has had a wonderful week so far!

p.s. I've started putting my things on my Etsy site again!  Yay!!  :)

Burlap 'n' Lace Planner Cover

So this is a planner cover that I made for myself.

The inside:

And I'm wondering - Do you guys use planners?
Would you like to see these planner covers for sale?  (Of course they'd all be unique, but they'd all be this type of style, with the natural lace and burlap kind of look.)


The other thing is, this could also be used as a checkbook cover.  Just sayin' :)

So what do you guys think?  Do you like it and would you use one?

Rhoades Family Camping

Last weekend we went to our Rhoades Family Camp Out!!  We had so much fun:)  Here's a few pictures I took.

On the way there - We go to my aunt and uncles who live in eastern Washington, about 2 1/2 hours away from home.  We left Friday morning and got there just before noon.
Tara writing in her journal.
Hunter grinning for his picture.
Morgan fell asleep before she really ate her cookie:)
Cutsie-pie Walker!!

Once we got there, we unloaded a few things, then we ate lunch (sub sandwiches - yumm!!), and then we started setting up and finished unpacking.  No one else was there yet.
The girls and dad setting up our girls' tent.
All three of our family's tent in a row (yes, they were all green:)
A few of the kids and some cousins at another tent.

Then it was time to play and have some fun!!
They have a candy store and ice cream for sale, which is a big hit with everyone.  I really enjoyed the ice cream and was kind of a pig, but oh well:)
Tara posing for me.  Before everyone got there we didn't have much to do so we were both taking some pictures.
Clint riding his bike.
Mom, Christopher, and Bronwyn relaxing and reading.

I took some pictures of Walker because he's cute!
Little Kid, Big Plans:)
Enjoying his candy from the candy store!

They have a pool, which makes there place an awesome place for camping!  A LOT of us spend a TON of time in the pool, especially for our family, because it's basically the only chance we get to go swimming.  We always enjoy the pool to it's fullest!

Some of my aunts pretty lavender.

And course I had to have a picture of Morgan with her cheesy smile!!

We came home Sunday afternoon after church.  We all had a wonderful weekend, I'm thinking:)

Hope everyone else had a wonderful weekend!!

Summer Time Happenings

So hey everyone!  I'm still alive:)  I  know, I know, I haven't posted in FOREVER:)

Lately it's been quite busy.  Recently, I started cleaning at my grandma's house, and then the next week I also started cleaning at my neighbors.  Tara is doing that with me.  We do weekly cleaning, so I think we're going to try and do the cleaning on Thursday's and Friday's whenever we can. 

Around Memorial Day, I started exercising.  I've been running and also doing a walking DVD.  I kind of try to do one in the morning and the other in the evening, but sometimes I'll end up doing the DVD both times:)  Hey, it's still exercising, anyways:)  I really enjoy running at Moulton though, if I can get mom to bring us.  To run one way it's 2.5 miles.  For the first time ever, I ran 5 miles, a week or 2 ago.  By the end I was hardly moving, but I did run the whole way, even if I did go slow:)

Our flower bed is just full of pretty, blooming flowers!!  

And tomorrow morning we're leaving to go camping!!  So we've been getting ready for that.  This morning I made huckleberry sauce for huckleberry crepes for camping . . . can't  wait to have them because they're going to be soooo DELICIOUS!!

I actually have done some baking lately:)  Last week I made these cinnamon rolls.

And I actually did some sewing again!  I want to start up my Etsy shop again.  I just need to get  some pictures of some stuff and then start posting it.  This is the bag I just made . . .

Well, hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!
