2) I am not gonna lie - I love pizza & cake - send me to a kid b-day and I am in heaven!
3) I drive a Suburban and I am not really concerned that it is not environmentally friendly
4) I am Pro-life
5) I love "Fight the good fight" 1 Timothy 6:12
6) I flip my pillow during the night to get to the cold side
7) I SERIOUSLY hate public restrooms, SERIOUSLY
8) I am not a shoe person, I wish there was one multipurpose shoe I could where and that would be that.
9) Random movie I sure love ~ In America ~ Irish family moving to NY
10) My sweet husband is a coin dealer, isn't that weird?
I will continue this post just incase anyone would ever care or read! I think these are fun to read about people. Totally pointless at the same time as I am sure I could be sleeping, cleaning, praying, attending to children...you know.

This particular kind is referred to as "Dog Shake" around here. Awhile back my son saw it at Arby's when getting a drink and picked out "Dog Shake". If you cannot read, that is quite the logical guess! I should probably clear things up for him before someone's child teases him...kids can be quite snotty to one another, where do they learn that from...tv?
Anyway, since I am pregnant no caffeine is good and diet as I do not need the calories. I am not thinking about the "artificial sweetners"....
It just tastes quite delicious (cannot even tell it is "diet"!).

Well anyway, I find myself getting tired of the smut/trash on tv, especially Sunday nights. Although the show is called Brothers & Sisters, it seems to have a lack of true "family values". However, to watch Masterpiece Classic - well, it is just that. The season runs untils April 25. The Diary of Anne Frank is coming April 11.
On a completely different note, what is a post without a picture? Well, I do not believe in them!
This guy is wondering why the heck his mom wants to photograph him eating a banana muffin?
And please excuse the coloring, bad camera day and no editing! My walls are really not that yuck of a color, they are actually a grey/green which I like in person, but show up awful in pics!

Lent begins tomorrow. For me:
Anyway, these are the best darn cookies on this side of the Mississippi - I am not kidding! This recipe is from Melanie's blog - love her recipes!
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 25-30 squares)
1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/3 cups coconut
2 cups (1 package) semisweet chocolate chips - (I used a tad bit less)
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, flour and baking powder. In a large bowl, beat sweetened condensed milk and butter until smooth. Add graham cracker crumb mixture; mix well. Stir in coconut, chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 9-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
NOTE: I had to bake 1-2 minutes longer and I think it could have used a slight more amount of graham cracker crumbs.

This book is a far cry from some of the Dora, Princess, Transformer, etc. lit that comes our way at times. For the record I rarely buy any "character" books, they are awful!

Purples turn quite dark - I liked the lighter shades.
Simply place your crayon shavings inbetween the wax paper, fold in the edges about an inch as you are going to take a warm iron to melt the shavings. I placed my paper sack on my ironing board, then the wax paper/crayon shavings, then another paper sack and ironed. Cool a bit and cut. Easy Peasy, right?
Here is Martha Stewart's version: Crayon Hearts
