ThrowBack Thursday.. Memories

Hey everyone!  It's Throwback Thursday and I was just thinking back to see how much my girls have grown. My oldest daughter, Tatiana is taking the picture, she's my beauty queen. I'm holding on to little Nile because I know at any moment she would dart right into the water. Still til this day, she's the fearless one. Laila's the middle is the silent and observant one. Very conscious where we moves, just like a chess player. This picture was taken about 6 years ago in Mississippi while visiting my oldest daughter. I'm originally I from New Orleans but we moved to Dallas in 2004.
I'm not really a picture taker, never have and never will be.  I don't like it. No Reason, it's just me.


Here's another beautiful picture that my oldest Tatiana took. I know she needs to go into photography. I actually have this picture enframed on my shelf. 

My hubby and my mom, when she came to see us on her Birthday about 2 years ago.

That's me and my girls about …

My Version of a Rainbow Cake..

Hey Everyone! This post is going to be short and sweet.. About a week ago I was strolling through YT and I stumbled across this lovely lady's channel called  My Cupcake Addiction. She is amazing, she makes cupcakes, recreates candy bars, cakes and alot of other decadent desserts..   Needles to say, I subscribed to her channel immediately.


She made a Fabulous Zebra Cake that I wanted to recreate this beautiful cake. Below is my version
I used 2 regular boxed cake mixes and cream cheese frosting and alot of food coloring.  1 Box of White Cake Mix 1 Box of Chocolate Fudge 

Please Like and Subscribe to her channel. My Cupcake Addiction Below Click.


This is my version of the "Zebra Cake"'. I call it Rainbow Cake, the colors were vibrant and fun as you can see.

I even let my daughter do her version in cupcakes and it turned out soo pretty but they had eaten all of the cupcakes before I could take a picture.

.  Not bad for my first time trying it.  Now I know what not to d…

Summertime Simplicity 1607 and 2562 Jumpsuit..

Hey Everyone!  If you come to my blog often, you know how much I love wally world.. I was in Wally World Monday and came across this beautiful home decor fabric and knew I had to make something with this.I It was $3.00 a yard so I picked up 3 yards. After I made my Circle skirt on last post, I went to Wally World and purchased to rest of the 1 yard and 5/8 . My mind is always racing thinking of different patterns, types of clothes or outfit to make. Oh .I remember this cute Jumpsuit and knew I had to make it. Ask me where am I going to wear it. I don't know and I don't care I just had to get out of my head and in some fabric. LOL!  I'm. Crazy like that! I get a little obsessive when I have and idea in my head. I remember posting this on my FB groups and putting it on my "Must-Sew" list. 

Check this one of the many boxes off my Must-Sew List!!  Being that my "girls" are large I added straps and the Cynthia Rowley 1607 was just the ticket..



 This was my …

Easy Corn Dog Pops..

Hey Everyone! I'm back with an easy and fun way to make lunch or dinner for your family. I try my best not to cook or do as less a possible on Friday's. Growing up my mother never cooked on Fridays, it was every man for himself. Not saying we didn't have any food in the house, we just had to carry our butts in the kitchen and make something for ourselves. My mother worked really late on Fridays at her beauty salon and was not about to come home and cook for us..  Even though I am a SAHM, I still carry that tradition in my home.  I make something that takes little to no effort on Fridays.. 


Friday and Saturday was Corn Dog Pops with Garlicky Fries..
The kids love them and you will too.

Ingredients:
Jiffy Corn Bread Eggs Milk Sugar Turkey Sausage Cake Pop Maker

For 1 box of Corn bread use 4 Turkey wieners. I used 3, mistake.

Cut wieners in in bits and microwave for about 30 seconds. 

Put wieners in corn bread mixture. 

 Add to cake pop maker, leave for about 4 minutes and th…

It's my DIY Scented Body Powder...


Supplies needed:
2 Cups Corn Starch Old Perfume ( Used Nile's Perfume) LOL Jar Cotton Balls Puff or Brush Ziploc Bag

Measure 2 Cups of Corn Starch and put in Ziploc bag.

Put cotton balls in the bag and shake. Keep in bag for about 3 days, shaking 2 a day.
