Happy Friday!

It made my afternoon just now when I realized I won Taylor's giveaway from Modern Bird Studios!
Check these out!

"Modern Bird Studios creates personalized, modern art from photographs. Each work is a one-of-a-kind, original studio piece created with a combination of digital, hand, and painting processes on an Oak composite. They take your photograph, and break it down into a two-color image, which results in abstract shapes that make up the form. Then they choose two contrasting colors to create the painting. The result is a marriage between technology and traditional painting to create a totally hip urban-style art piece that enriches your home."
Oh my gosh I am SO excited I can hardly wait. I love pictures so this is the PERFECT thing for me to win! :) Eeeek!
I love The Undomestic Momma's blog and she has the BEST giveaways! Thanks again Taylor.

Today I made my MIL's famous:

Frozen Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake

You need:
Mr.Chrisitie's Chocolate Cookie Wafers
1/4 cup margarine
2 packages of Dream Whip

14oz of either crushed pineapple, frozen strawberries or raspberries.
(today I mixed raspberries and pineapple)
Spingform pan

To do:

  1. Take out 12 whole cookies.

  2. Crumb the rest (I use my magin bullet).

  3. Save a little of the crumbs to sprinkle on the top at the end

  4. Mix remaining crumbs with melted margarine and press into pan.

  5. Set 12 cookies around the sides of pan as crust.

  6. Whip 2 packages of Dream Whip with milk until it looks like whipped cream.

  7. Add crean cheese and icing sugar. Cream all together.

  8. Drain fruit and add to white mixture.

  9. I add a little juice to give it a pretty pink color. :)

  10. Pour into pan.

  11. Sprinkle crumbs on top and then place in freezer over night.

  12. Easy peasy and so good.
Because I am sure your weekend just wouldn't be compete without knowing that
I am lovin':
New potatoes with fresh dill. My aunt made these for dinner last night and I ate...a lot.

Cold water with tons of fresh lemon. yum.

My parents friends brought out Tetley Infusions. Verdict: Good. Not too sweet. 90 cals. Tastes just like delicious tea but cold and refreshing.

Washers game. Too fun. And the girls kicked butt today, just saying.

When Cruz lays in the shallow water. So cute.
And lastly swims in the middle of the lake.

Have a great weekend everyone.
Ciao Bellas!
