sometimes life gets in the way

Of blogging that is.  This has been a crazy busy week.  Of course, if you read my previous post, you know what was going on in the beginning of the week...thank goodness that's over.  So, I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend.  I have 3 children, who will all be home, unless I can pawn them off on the grandparents so "relaxing" is probably not going to happen.  But anyway...I found these
They scream "FALL", and I just have to give them a try - tonight! Even though the weather is
Yes, that says 97.  Yesterday.  Craaazy.  I hate cold weather, but I do insist that it be cold for the holidays.  You hear that Mother Nature?  I insist.  It's usually not all that cold for Halloween, but come Thanksgiving, I want cold weather.  And December?  I want chessnuts roasting on an open fire, and winter wonderlands and all that crap.  It is chessnuts right?  Chestnuts doesn't sound right.  Sounds down right frightening actually.  So anyway, I digress.  As usual.

I did make these last night
Yummo - not to quote the annoyingly perky Rachel Ray.  But I saw a recipe for a lower fat rice krispie treat the other day, and have been wanting to try it.  Yes, you can reduce the amnt of "butter" (I used Smart Balance Light) in the original recipe, and still have yummy treats.  Since I used less butter, I felt justified in adding the toffee and mini chocolate chips.  This is totally Buffee's fault.  She posted about a version of these a while back, and since Heath bars are one of my favorite candy know I had to try it.  We've pretty much devoured the whole pan.  Good thing they were low fat ;)  You can see the recipe here.

 And speaking of Ms. Buffee - I won a giveaway she was hosting for MAMA CARDS from Mabel's labels.  How cool are they?  I'll be that mom, who appears super organized and everyone hates envies.  Except for the hair that needs highlighting, the lack of make-up, the really-needs-a-pedicure...okay, so maybe they won't be that envious, but I'll have cool cards to pass out to the few people I actually deem worthy of association.  haha.  (I'm only sort of kidding).  If you want your own Mama Cards, you can head over to Think Tank Momma's blog  - she's hosting a giveaway, but you have to hurry - THE GIVEAWAY ENDS TOMORROW!!!  I don't mean to scream, but I wanted to make sure I had your attention.  And, you don't have to be a mom - you can have whatever you want put on your cards!

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.  I'm going to go try out my pumpkin spice ale!


  1. I'm pretty sure pumpkin beer makes just about everything better. I think it's a proven fact.

    Those rice krispie treats sound awesome! I hope you have a fun weekend!

  2. I don't drink beer, but the one kind I DID try was pumpkin. I'm still not a beer drinker, but I am glad you got yourself some. Cheers! Congrats on winning the Mama Cards! I don't know if you got them yet, but they're adorable. Mine just arrived this week. I <3 them! And get out of my head, please, as I have been wanting to make rice krispie treats for like two weeks! YUM!
