Copycat Pudding Popsicles

TGIF! It is almost time for a 3 day weekend! Yippee! That means some quality time with the hubby! And because it is Memorial Day we also get to see some great fireworks. I love me some fireworks. Any of you have grand plans for this holiday weekend??

Copycat Pudding Popsicles

Have you noticed that the past 2 weeks I’ve been on an ice cream/popsicle kick. I think it is the beautiful 70 and 80 degree days we’ve been having. That combined with all the work I’ve been doing outside, I’m loving me some popsicles! One of my all time favorite popsicles as a kid was Jello pudding pops. I love them. In effort to get back in touch with my inner child, I decided to venture to make these delicious Copycat Pudding Popsicles.

The Easy Way To Hang Your Curtains

I have a confession: when we first moved into the house almost a month ago. I had no clue what I wanted as far as decor and design goes. I know, I know. A DIY blogger not knowing what kind of style she likes!? What!?! Well, it’s true. I have always tried to make the decor of our home work within the confines of where we live. And for the past several years that has been apartments. Boring, beige, standard apartments. So when we moved in to the new house where I could do anything I wanted, I was in a big of a decor shock. What do I want!? I had/have no clue. I didn’t want to be super trendy for fear of hating it in 2 years! So I was afraid to commit to anything {with the exception of paint, I knew I loved gray.. but apparently I didn’t know what shade of gray I loved} and that included curtains.

The Easy Way To Hang Your Curtains

As many people will tell you when you move, you should always make sure you have bedding and bathing supplies available immediately. Most people also tell you to have curtains immediately. I didn’t. I was afraid to commit! I didn’t buy them until we had lived in our home for a week. We would sit in the living room at night to veg and watch a little TV. Suddenly, I knew what it felt like to be on reality TV. Dark night, lights on in the house, and no curtains? Yup, everyone could see our every move. I started calling it the “Fishbowl Effect”. I was imagining all kinds of creepy pervs lining up to stand outside our house. Eww. It was awful.

So my mom and I skipped off to Ikea and bought some beautiful Rivta curtains that are nice and super long! We also bought a nice and long curtain rod. I don’t love extendable rods because they always seem to sag in the middle, but this one was long enough to fit over the window without extending. SCORE! And then the dreaded chore… hanging the curtains. I almost always ended up with multiple holes in the walls. So instead, I figured out the easy way to hang your curtains! And because I’m so nice, I’ll let you in on the little secret.

Oops I Did It Again…

I played with your heart! Got lost in the paint! Oooo baby, baby! Just having a little Britney moment over here. You were all so kind and encouraging when I posted about how I was already repainting… after living in our new house for only 3 weeks. Fail. But seriously. Thank you. You guys rock. You inspired me to power through my failure and pick up a paint brush again.

Oops I Did It Again... Gray Painted Great Room

Anywho, this last week we took 2 days and repainted the living room and kitchen. And all I can say is holy wow. I am in love with the gray we picked! It is perfect! It is exactly what I envisioned for our space. No more suspense. We went with number 2 – a beautiful gray with a touch of warmth. It is called Sparrow by Behr.

Patriotic Ice Cream Sandwiches

Patriotic Ice Cream Sandwiches

So today’s “recipe” barely even qualifies as a recipe. I’ve been crazy busy this week working on some projects {including painting} and I have barely had time to cook or bake anything. Plus Denver has been having the most gloriously beautiful weather the past week. So with Memorial Day coming up and the warm weather we’ve been having, I decided to celebrate with a little treat: patriotic ice cream sandwiches!
