Friends + Milkshakes = YUM!!

Summer is the PERFECT TIME for milkshakes, don’t you think? I spent the night at Sophie’s yesterday and she concocted the most wonderful, delicious, sweet, amazing Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake!” Sounds crazy, right? Well, it’s CRAZY GOOD!  Check out the recipe below. Oh, and also check out the pic of two of my friends that read my diaries! They like milkshakes too! Do you read my diaries? If so, SEND ME A PIC and look for it on my website or INSTAGRAM!

Sophie’s Peanut Butter and Jelli-licious Milkshake!

(for two friends of course:) 

In a blender, combine:

1 cup of crushed ice

2 cups of low fat milk

2 teaspoon of sugar

1/4 cup of peanut butter

3/4 cup of blueberries OR strawberries

Blend and TA DA! Instant YUMMINESS! Next time, we’re gonna add a banana!

Well, gotta go do some fashion sketches. I have a ton of ideas for back-to-school! Remember, send me pics of you and your friends reading my diaries. That will be SO COOL!  Later!

MasonJarVases!

July 10, 2015

I LOVE SUMMER!  Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted! From pool parties, Vacation Bible School, and sleepovers at Sophie’s, it’s been    C-R-A-Z-Y!  So, my BFF and I were out walking last night and picked a few wildflowers. We brought them inside and I couldn’t find a vase ANYWHERE.  But my mom had JUST rinsed out the jar we keep pickles in and I had a BRILLIANT idea! She was just going to throw it in the recycling bin – so she said I could use it! I rinsed it out really well (no one wants flowers that smell like pickles…gross) Then I peeled the label off of the outside and scrubbed it until it was sparkling clean. Then, Sophie and I went to my ribbon scrap pile and found a pieces in my favorite color:  PINK.  Mom had some burlap fabric and it was a great combo! We tied a piece around it, filled the jar with water, and put our wildflowers in it. Umm… SO PRETTY! I love flowers, don’t you??  Send me some pics of crafts that you and your friends like to do!

XOXO!

TGIF!!! Thank Goodness It’s Friday!

SO glad the weekend is here! Sophie is coming over with a recipe that sounds soooo weird!  She promises they’ll be the BEST BROWNIES EVER. The coolest part? We’re gonna make them in coffee mugs! Let’s just hope the Germ and that crazy skunk of his don’t stick their nose in it and sneak a bite! Who wants skunk spit in their brownies!

Sophie’s YUMMY Coffee Cup Brownies!

(You need a big mug – you don’t want it overflowing over the sides.)

Combine ¼ cup of flour, a pinch of salt, ¼ cup of sugar, a drop of vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons of canola oil, and ¼ cup of water. Mix it all up, and pour the mixture into your coffee mug. Then, microwave it for 2-3 minutes. Then, top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and ENJOY! Best SNACK EVER! XOXO!

FINALLY!!!

YES! The weekend is here! My BFF Sophie is coming over for a sleepover and we’re having a spa night!  Check out our Pink Sugar Body Scrub! It’s A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! We may even come up with a recipe for a sweet smelling lotion or something. Who knows! One thing is for sure: my brother Jeremy, (or I prefer to call him “the Germ”) had better stay out of my stuff! If you don’t already know, he has a pet skunk—yes, that’s what I said—a SKUNK! Can you say CRAZY?! No wonder he likes the smell of our spa stuff!! DUH!!

Happy Sunday!

May 3, 2015

Happy Sunday! After hanging out with Sophie and listening to the message at church, I’m gonna TRY—I mean REALLY REALLY TRY to be nice to my worst enemy–Miranda Maroni–at school tomorrow. Can you relate? Miranda acts like she is the fashion queen and EVERYONE likes her, or it sure seems that way! She has the latest and greatest of everything and I SO WANT a new cross body bag like hers. Maybe in cobalt blue? But who am I kidding? I gotta do a LOT of chores before I can afford one. Anyway, I gotta remember that the person I have to please the most is God. Maybe that handbag can wait….OR maybe I’ll create my OWN BAG! Stay tuned……………!!!!!!

 

Hi There! Thanks For Checking Out My Blog!

IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE!!!!

Can you believe it? My second diary hits the bookstores TODAY! It naturally contains my fashion sketches, a few hush hush secrets, a few rants about my PAIN of a brother, and yes, even the 4-1-1 about my least favorite person at school: Miranda Maroni. You will NOT believe what my friends have asked me to do at school!!….But WAIT…..Why am I telling you this here?? Head to your favorite bookstore and pick up a copy! Don’t forget to write back and tell me what you think! XOXOXO
