Cherry Blossoms!

Last weekend we went up the Island and Taya just loved the cherry blossom trees :) The breeze was gathering up the fallen petals in little piles, she called them her "special flower gardens" SO cute :) I could NOT stop taking pix but I'm just sharing one real quick :)

I'll will post those sewing room pix soon :)

Ok Ladies get prepared to see the smallest computer desk EVER. I did it on purpose. As discussed previously, I'm MESSY. I wanted to minimize the space in which to make a mess so I got the smallest desk I could find. As you can see there is room for a tea cup or two and the small messyness has to stay on the keyboard tray underneath :) This is the corner of my....whatever. My place is just one giant room, so this is the corner of my giant room LOL. TV and couch is behind me, that is Taya's armoire beside me and the rest I just use for a play room... it all ends up a playroom anyhow so why not just make it the best and funnest you can right? Ok so as we can see the speakers have fallen on the floor and have been there for 2 weeks actually...yup! I'm THAT lazy haha, who wants to wrestle that mess of wires back there? Not ME! I can hear them just fine from down there;) We have a photoalbum in there that is full of BEAUTIFUL images not taken by me....lets just say I used to work at a photlab...the rest of that sentence would be illegal so we will leave it at that ;) Hmm what I even supposed to be giving commentary on these or???? Whatever I'm doing it anyhow, over to the left we have an awesome headband that Gyl made me to match my awesome Rhembein bag. She is also the kindly lady that tagged me. We also have an adorable hair flower by Geeta of Babette!. Also some "decorating" by Taya. And now you are bored so I'm just gonna shutty :) Who the heck do I tag? Becky? Bwahaha I have seen yours :)

You know you wanna...

...just eat this. I can hardly even look at it without running to the kitchen to make these again. I have refrained for 3 months. No bake cherry cheesecake tarts if it's not obvious what these are. If I make them...I will eat them ALL. Oinker? Maybe.... Delicious? Understatment of the century! If you now cannot controll yourself and MUST make these, don't use anything but E.D. Smith cherry pie filling for topping. It is the best of the best! Now I have to go find something to eat cause I'm DYING looking at that scrumptious little tarteroo. This is just a new post to freshen up the place while I clean up my sewing room to share with you all :)

Ok here is the recipe if you want it :) Smush up 1 1/4 cups of digestive cookies or graham crackers (I prefer the digestive cookies) mix it with 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup melted butter. Press it into a glass..ummm 8x8 I think, 9x9? I dunno whatever the square one is, the culinary courses I took have long left my mind I'm afraid! then bake it at 350F for 8-10 minuts. Or you can be like me and devide it up into 24 large size cupcake papers(same baking time)

So while that is cooking take two 8oz things of cream chesse softened and mix it with 1teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix in 1/2 cup of icing sugar. I run it through the sifter of course to prevent lumps. Ok now go bean 1 cup of whipping cream and fold it into the creamcheese mixture. Plunk that down into the cooled crust(s) and refirgerate for a few hours. I think it's best left overnight, it tastes much more cream cheesie y'know? Then top it all of with one can of E.D Smith cherry pie filling. I know, not rocket science! Easiest thing to make and so quick too :)
So recap:
2 - 8oz pkg Cream Cheese
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Icing Sugar
1 cup Whipping Cream

1 1/4 Crumbs (digestive or graham)
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 sugar (totally optional, but It's so fattening who cares, just go for the sugar man!)

Ahhh the onset of spring :) I am trying to FULLY enjoy the spring time now that it is finally here :) After months upon months of rain and mud, I welcome spring with an open sunroof and sandals galore. Boy was I tired of wearing shoes! I HATE shoes!!! They make my toes clausterphobic, who knows if I even spelled that right, but that's what they are when I have to wear shoes. The piggies have a mind of their own. They like fresh air and they wiggle around like they just might DIE if they can't get loose immediatly! As for the sunroof, I love it. I have a black Honda and it gets HOT in there, I also have no air conditioning and each year I don't think I'll make it another day in that blistering ovenmobile. At least the sunroof lets the heat excape, but then I have the sun burning my skin right off. I dont wanna be wrinkly so I wear my pink Jimmie Johnson cap, but hten I get sweaty and that is gross. I can't win, lets face it, I need air conditioning!!! (See what I mean about the complaining? Story of my life...)

Don't know how I got to toes and sweaty hats but my point of this post was to share these pics of Taya. With the onset of spring comes her rejuvination of her love of bubbles!!! She'll take any bubble in any fashion at any time of the day. These were Miracle bubbles with a wand at about 2pm ;) I love her bubble blowing face, as if filling your cheeks with air till they almost burst is at all necessary. We got this bubble container thing, let me tell you what a saviour it has been! I'm looking forward to NOT stepping in goo on the deck, this kid spills bubbles like nobodies I'm sure all 2 1/2 yr olds do ;) Anyhow it's a no spill bubble bucket. I see they have Dora and Diego ones now, but we have an octopus. Get one, you won't be sorry!!! And how I overlooked this little gem I don't know, but Toys'r'us here we come!!!

Comedy at it's best!

So I have been tagged by sweet Mandy do stop complaining for 21 days.......BAHHHHHAHAHAHA. I'm laughing pretty hard here, I'm not going to lie...I'm a complainer... I do alot of complaining..."complain" probably should have been my middle name. My mom always thought it should have been "messy" maybe I should be Emily Messy Complainer. Sounds about right LOL. Anyhow, my point here is, I could try....but I would not be sucessful...
