Happy Homemaker Monday 05.23.16

Good Morning!!  Enjoyed the weekend, finally got some warmer weather and sun!! Sunday was our Paint the Town Pink’s Battin’ for Boobies Softball Tournament.  I tell you what, it was the safest place to be in town, since one of the teams were the Firefighters and Police Officers (Guns and Hoses).  Either the ambulance in the parking lot was their ride, or it was on stand by, as the players gave it their all to raise money for Breast Cancer.  One of the players on the Guns and Hoses team did acquire a nasty cut on his leg, as he slid into home plate…wearing shorts…that’s gotta hurt, ouch!!  I guess it was worth it, since the Guns and Hoses are the reigning champs.  Always a good time!!  On to another week, this is our last full week of school!!

Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.



I have sooo much to read, and not finding the time to do so!! I recently received an Advanced Review Copy (ARC) of a book to review as a beta reader, so that is my top priority at the moment, I am enjoying it so far. Plus how fun is that? To read a book and give feedback before it gets published!!


I’ve been saving recipes on my FB page to try. Haven’t had time to do much baking or cooking for that matter, please do not revoke my mom card, LOL. I did make the bread pudding I’ve had a taste for!! My dear friend Carrie posted a recipe of a dessert my mom used to make, Toffee Bars and now I want to make some too!!

Came across this video!! Aren’t these cakes gorgeous!! I have never seen this technique before, absolutely stunning.

You can read and see more about it here.


This guy…he’s protecting my chocolate stash in the fridge, lol.  This was shortly after we saw Captain America (which had Spider Man in it as well).  Always fun with boys in the house!!

  1. Years ago the ex played in the Church Softball League. The local hospital HATED Church Softball night. (Spoiler alert: None of you are 18 anymore.) We had a bank VP do the slide-in-shorts – he basically peeled his leg and ruined three suits while it was healing….

    Our house has a Darth Vader and a Batman that act a bit like that Elf on a Shelf….minus the tattling.


  2. Oh how I LOVE the name of that softball tourney and that team!! Too funny and clever. 😉

    And I adore your funny!! I so remember those days and I don’t miss them! Having a hysterectomy was one of the best choices I’ve made. 😛

    I still haven’t had a chance to make those darn toffee bars – but I’ve been craving them too!! I will get to them one day SOON.

    Go Spidey go! Great shot! Lol And love that quote. Amen.
    Blessings Pumpkin. xoxo

  5. My 16yo daughter has that Spiderman! lol We found him at a thrift store a couple of years back. He’s been in a lot of interesting places over the years. Have a great week!
