Going gets tough

My mom found out that she has duodenum (small intestine) cancer. I'll be flying home with the girls to spend some good quality time with her. She'll be going to have a cancer surgery and then chemo. It's so hard to believe that this is happening. She was just here a few months ago to help with the arrival of Livy. Now this. Please keep her in your prayers and I'll keep you updated as we go through this process.

Just add the samples to your cart and check out for free! :) The samples cost $3.15/sample, but once you add the code TRYME at checkout, you won't have to pay a thing. I'm trying the Wild Blueberry Green Tea and Chocolate Mint Rooibos Herbal Tea.

Memorial Day Cooking

We went to several picnics this last weekend. I wanted to make something that would be festive, but all I found were a bunch of berry desserts. So, I went with the next best thing....dirt! I knew the kids would love it, Emily could help me make it, and it would be yummy! Here's how you make it.

1 instant choc. pudding (4 serving size)
1 tub cool whip @ room temp
2 cups milk
20 oreo cookies
gummy worms
clear cups
First whisk the pudding and milk together for 2 min. Let it stand 5 min. While you wait, take 20 oreos and crush them up. (I had Emily help with this part. She loved using the rolling pin and crushing with her hands!) After the 5 min, add the cool whip to the pudding. Take 1/3 cup of the crushed oreos and add that to the pudding. Scoop 1/2 cup of pudding into each cup. Top with oreos and gummy worm. I made 8 servings, but could have made 10.
