Fall giveaway winner!

Thanks to all that entered my fall giveaway. You all rock. :)

Ok, without further ado, the winner is Sarah, from Yes, Teacher. I ran it twice, because some folks put they were a follower, which could be an extra entry, with their comment, so by doing the drawing wtih 18 and 19, Sarah still won. I think it was fate. Anyway, Sarah, email me and I'll send you your goodies!

Thanks again for entering! Happy fall!

Tickle me Tuesday: Boots

Now that it's fall, I can get away with wearing boots. SCORE!

I must must must have these! Oh, and if anyone wants to forward this post to the hubs, I do have a birthday coming up in a month and half. :)

What can I say except that I love love love these. They are a MUST!

I have been wanting these for ages. Now with the weather change, they need to live with me. I like pink, if anyone is interested in sending them to me. M'kay?!

Umm, these are my size and $30!! YES! I love the detailing! Swoon.

What's been tickling your Tuesday?

Giveaway Time!

I'm feeling generous, so I thought, "let's do a giveaway!" So here it is.

1. A bracelet. Because it's fun and cute and who doesn't like jewelry, right?!

It's like an ivoryish color, with gold. I got it at LOFT. I suck at taking photos so I'm sorry about that....

2. A Starbucks gift card for $15! That's a lotta lattes! See what I did there? I'm hysterical. :)

3. A scarf. Because everyone needs one. Plus, it's pretty.

Lions and Tigers and Cats...Oh MY!

Ok people, it's the little things in life that amuse me. So, of course I just had to by this!

An owl hat! I die!

Clearly I love animal hats. And cats. And cats in hats.

Speaking of awesome animals, look what showed up on my doorstep!

I named him Jeffrey. I love him. He doesn't have a tail. The hubs won't let me keep him, but little does he know that I have a plan. :)

I'm fairly certain we either have a sign hanging up in front of our house that says Cat Sanctuary or Raven is running some sort of kitty underground railroad. One things for sure, this little dude wanted to get in the house BAD.

It's a bad picture, but you get the jist....

If I take Jeffrey in, does this make me the crazy cat lady???

I like pie

I'm going to share an awesome, so easy a caveman can do it recipe with all of you!

You can thank me later.

Blackberry Lemon Pudding Pie

1 jar Blackberry Preserves
6 oz. Lemon Curd
1 3/4 c. Milk, cold
2 sm. boxes Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
1 8-oz. container Whipped Topping
1 10" Graham Cracker Pie Crust
Optional: Blackberries, fresh or frozen

* I'm an idiot and got some wrong ingredients, since I didn't write things down. So, instead of vanilla pudding I used cheesecake pudding and instead of the whipped topping I got whipped cream, but I squeezed a whole can in there so I think it was a success. Also, I didn't get the name brand products, because I'm a cheap arse. I just grabbed what was on sale. Lastly, I made the crust because I'm cheap. :)

In a large bowl, mix milk and pudding mix. Beat with a wire whisk for 30 seconds. Stir in the softened curd, then the whipped topping. Pour mixture into prepared pie crust. Chill in the freezer until firm (a few hours). Spread preserves on top of pie. Chill. To serve, garnish with optional blackberries. Makes 8-10 servings.

My non-sweet tooth loving husband LOVES this. So much so that last night he said, "I can't wait for dessert, that pie was great!" Awwww.

If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
