Friday Fives! (Wedding Style) My Answers!!

I am joining in on this fun party over at Southern Inspiration! Here are my answers!

1. What year were you married? I was married June 5, 2004 (in other words 6/5/04) easy to remember! :)

2. Did you watch the wedding this morning? Yes I did! My hubby woke me up early (3:30) so I wouldn't miss it! It was so beautiful! I am really glad I watched it!

3. What did you think of the dress? It was gorgeous! Kate looked stunning! I thought it was an excellent choice!

4. Would you like hats to be back in fashion? Would you wear one? I would definitely like to see hats come back into fashion! I would totally wear one if they do! They look very classy!

5. If you could do a second honeymoon, where would you go? If I had the money to go, I would want to go to London or Paris! I think those would be really fun places to visit!


I am so glad I tuned in today to watch The Royal Wedding and got to see all the excitement! It was definitely a memorable event that I won't forget! It was like looking at a real life fairytale!

Have a GREAT day!

~Chocolate Eclair~

Hello beauties! Thank goodness it has finally stopped raining here in Oklahoma! I was getting waterlogged! LOL I am sure glad to see the sun shining again! Since it is starting to feel warm outside I wanted to share a COOL recipe with you that my Mom has been making for years! It is so yummy and I just couldn't keep it all to myself! LOL



What you'll need:

1 box of Graham Crackers (any kind you want-I like to use Cinnamon)

1 large or 2 small boxes of Vanilla Pudding
3 cups Skim Milk
8 oz. Lite Cool Whip

1 can Chocolate Frosting (1/2 cup)



Line a 9x13 dish with Graham Crackers. Mix pudding as directed on pudding box and then fold in Cool Whip. Spread 1/2 mixture over graham crackers, add another layer of graham crackers, spread on rest of pudding mixture. Add a final layer of graham cracker, then spread chocolate frosting on top. {It is best to heat frosting in microwave for about 20 seconds before spreading-it makes it easier to spread} Refrigerate for 4 hours.





Enjoy! I could seriously eat this whole thing...it is soo yummy!


Stay cool and have a GREAT day!

He is Risen!!



Matthew 28:6 He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

1 Peter 1:3 "Let us give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! Because of his great mercy he gave us new life by raising Jesus Christ from death. This fills us with a living hope."

Death could not hold Him, the grave could not keep Him...He took the nails for you and for me, so that we would have a choice!


I hope everyone had a great Easter and celebrated the true meaning of Easter!

2. Do you die eggs for Easter? I'm sure my niece and nephews will be dyeing some eggs!

~It's a Spring Thing!~

So what screams "Spring" more than anything? BIRDHOUSES! Am I right? I know everyone has seen them throughout Blogland and I knew I had to make a few of my own! I grabbed this cute little birdhouse from the $1.00 bin at Michael's and made this little guy! How cute is he?


I also found this bad boy at a local Goodwill store. He really wasn't a "Springy" color...




So...I gave him a coat of light blue paint and gave him a new leg to stand on and "Viola"! Here he is! I just love how he turned out!




I think these will be a nice addition to my Spring decor! They are very festive!





Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Thrifty fabulous finds!

The other day, my Mom and I went to a local business where they were having a fantabulous sale! Everything was 80% off so we got some good deals that I just have to share with you! I got some adorable shoes, some cute flower arrangements, and a few other things! I only spent $16.00 compared to the regular price which would have been around $73.00 or more! I couldn't believe how well we did! :) Check out my AWESOME deals:



How cute are these? These are some Madeline Stuart shoes I got for $10.00! I can't wait to wear these with some cute capris or a cute little summer dress!




These flower arrangements were originally $7.50 a piece but I got them for 50 cents a piece! I can't wait to put them out with my Fall decor!



The other things I got I can't show you because they are Christmas gifts for some of my wonderful family members and I would hate to spoil the surprise! :)

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my fabulous finds! Have a wonderful day!
