Eureka! I Found My Belt And A Lot Of Gold!

Oh my! What a day we have had. As you know from yesterday’s post I was feeling a bit overwhelmed before we even made it to our dance… I finally found that missing belt though and you’ll never guess where. If it had been a snake it would have bit me… it really would have.

Remember the pile of clothes I had laid out on the bed? Can you guess where it is? Take a closer look…

See it now? I have no idea how it got there even though I am quite sure I must’ve done it before I put away my crinoline. I’ve never done this before so I’m really quite puzzled as to why I did that but it is safe and sound where it belongs now.

Crazy thing is I didn’t really even need it last night as it wasn’t quite the right shade… sigh. Here’s a quick pic of my outfit… I was hoping to get a better pic last night but that never happened either.

Watermelon Cupcakes

I made these for the Chili Dog Dangle Dance that we had on June 9th for the Silver Fox Squares. They were so good and fairly easy to make. Not too mention that they are pretty cute if you don’t tip them over on the way.

For future reference, I will try to frost the cupcakes when they arrive at the location instead of frosting them and transporting them. I did find this idea on Pinterest and you can click here for the original recipe.

The kids can help with this one and make it a bit more fun. Continue reading “Watermelon Cupcakes”

Apple Sonker

This may not be a true ‘sonker’, or cobbler, but this is the easiest way I know to make one. You can also use other pie fillings to make these delicious desserts. Pair this with some vanilla ice cream and it’s sure to be a winner!

The kids can even help with this one. You can use different fruit fillings to change it up a bit as well! Continue reading “Apple Sonker”
