Switching to a New Domain - www.patchesofpink.com

Hey Everyone!

I am in the process of switching my site to my new domain, http://www.patchesofpink.com. Isn't that so cool?! I think it is. I don't think there will be any problems with the move, but if there are they should get ironed out very quickly or feel free to contact me at patchesofpink(at)gmail(dot)com. Keep coming back for more!

By the way, if you try to go to patchesofpink.blogspot.com it will just forward to my new address, so no worries!

Is there anything that you would like me to do specifically? I'm always up for hearing what my readers have to say!

Thanks,

Banana Pudding Recipe

Well, I don't know what its like where you are, but its a very windy Wednesday.  Its a good day to curl up on the couch with some hot chocolate (don't forget the marshmallows) and either a good book or movie.  Today, I prefer a good movie.

Speaking of good things, I though I would post a super good recipe, since I haven't posted one in a long while.  Here is a yummy recipe for banana pudding.  Enjoy!


Banana Pudding

2 boxes instant french vanilla or regular vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
1 container cool whip
8 oz cream cheese
1 package gram cracker crumbs
6-9 bananas

Fold in pudding, milk, cool whip, and cream cheese.  Start with a layer of gram cracker crumbs, then pudding mixture, then cut up a banana and lay the slices on top of the pudding.  Continue layering this way until you run out of the pudding mixture.  Make sure you have enough pudding to have a layer for the top along with a few gram cracker crumbs to finish it off.

Monday: Fish, fries, and salad
Tuesday: BLT's (didn't get to them last week)
Wednesday: Sweet and sour chicken, rick, green beans
Thursday: Beef stew and biscuits
Friday: Pork chops, mashed potatoes, corn, and salad
Saturday: Fried chicken, red potatoes, green beans, and salad
Sunday: Pizza

Get my baby well again, organize pictures online to print, clean the house, and spend time with the family.

Very First Embossed Card!

Well, I'm feeling much better, but now my daughter is sick.  She got a flu shot on Tuesday and has been sick ever since.  We just can't seem to stay healthy in this house.  I am disinfecting daily, though, so hopefully that helps a little. 

A few weeks ago, a friend taught me how to emboss!  I had been wanting to learn how for a while.  Its so easy and it adds great detail and cuteness to a card.  This is how my first embossed card turned out.  Its simple, but cute!



Have a fabulous day!  Happy crafting!!

Halloween Butterfly

I know Halloween is over, but I wanted you all to see just how cute my little girl was in her butterfly costume.  She had such a fun time trick or treating at the mall!  She is such a cutie, but I'm sure I'm a little bias.  Enjoy!!

Monday Menu and Mommy Help!!

Well, after a week of being ill, I'm finally feeling back to normal again.  It's really hard being a sick mommy, but again I'm so grateful for all the wonderful ladies who made us dinner and watched my daughter while I rested.  And since I'm up and moving again, I get to make my family dinner, so here is our weekly menu.

Monday: Chicken fajitas
Tuesday: Lasagna, garlic bread, and salad
Wednesday: Sloppy Joe's, french fries, and salad
Thursday: Chicken fettuccine alfredo
Friday: BLT's
Saturday: Pork chops, mashed potatoes, corn, and salad
Sunday: Pizza and salad

~Weekly Goals~
 Make up on cleaning lost last week, stock up on craft supplies, scrap, and get my daughter to sleep through the night.

My daughter has been waking up 3 to 4 times a night for the past 4 nights.  I rock her and lay her back down but 30 minutes to an hour later, she's up again.  We give her a bottle on the last try and that puts her back to sleep.  She was completely weened a couple weeks ago, but then she started doing this.  We don't want to give her a bottle, but its the only thing that will calm her down.  Does anyone have any suggestions????

So Blessed




~A little sneak peak of just one super cute Halloween pic of my daughter.  There's more to come.  She's the one with the reaching in for the candy. :)~

Hi everyone!  Sorry I haven't posted anything in a few days.  I have been sick with the flu since Saturday night.  It started small, but just got worse as the days went on.  I went to the doctor yesterday and was given a prescription, which I'm glad to say is working great!  I'm feeling a little better today than I was yesterday.  I'm very grateful to my wonderful friends who have offered to watch my daughter while I rest and bring us dinners.  Also to my great family, who maybe far away, but are always thinking and praying for us.  My hubby has been great too!  He came home from school early (even though he is way behind in his homework) to help out.  I truly feel blessed to have so many wonderful people around me!  Hopefully by the end of the week I'll be up and running like normal...hopefully.
