Lamp domino.....

Just wondered if anyone else does this?  Or am I the only one?

yes there are light sabers in my basket.....  no time for cropping when your insane! LOL!

I got a new lamp, which I will post about soon.  But it has been in my house for 2 weeks and I hadn't put it out yet.  So tonight I thought would be a good time to put it in the family room.  I put it on the table and have proceeded to move about 8 other lamps, switched lampshades, finals, you name it!!  Now I have lamps everywhere and I don't like them anywhere else.  Why do I do this to myself?  Tell me I'm not alone!   Hopefully I will have this resolved before bed........ However it's 11:30 pm, so it's not looking good!!  

STAY TUNED!!!!!!!!

Move over Sandra Lee

There is something to be said for "semi" homemade.   She definitely coined a market!   Whenever I go somewhere, dinner, visiting a friend and etc.  I like to bring something.  And I was one of those people who HAD to make something, like move heaven and earth to do it.  Aka-stressmyselftothemaxtodoit!    

The thought of bringing a box of store bought brownies made me crazy.  Honestly though, I have come so far as to do JUST that a few times.  I'm getting easier on myself.  Part of my "learning how to say no" phase of life.  I think I could start a whole blog series with that one.  Anyway, a story for another day. ;)

I like to cook, but I also like to not stress myself out.    I was going to my sisters house a few weeks ago and I told her I would bring dessert.    Of course that weekend was full of swimming, karate, horse riding and etc.  You get the idea.  So low and behold it's Saturday night and I hadn't even thought of what I was bringing.     I love trifles.  They are usually pretty to look at.  The dish can be found at Walmart or Target for about $6 - $10.   I think Pampered Chef has a fancy one that has a cover and all.  For much more money of course.    They are usually just layering ingredients and fun to scoop out too!       

I usually make strawberry shortcake with homemade biscuits (and every blue moon homemade whipped cream!)  because it's my dad's FAVORITE dessert. :)

It doesn't take anytime at all to throw together.  Sometimes, if the strawberries aren't very sweet, I will cut them up and sprinkle a bit of sugar on them.  Then I let them sit in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.  But I didn't do that this time (they were sweet) and it was still delicious.


2 -  packages of store baked biscuits 
3-   big packages of strawberries
1-   16 oz container of cool whip  (I kind of ran out of cool whip, I would do another 8 oz or just get 2 - 16 oz for next time!)

layer them all! :)

Voila!  Strawberry Shortcake Trifle!

SPAM war

I am just wondering if I am waging this war alone or is everyone experiencing this?

Do any of you feel like this when you see all the anonymous comments that are SPAM when you open your email?

I'm not talking about this kind of spam either!

I mean THIS kind!!!!!

Then I log into blogger to delete the spam

I "delete all" the comments that are under the SPAM section of the comments.....

And then I realize that there are MORE SPAM comments in the "published" section!

And yes this is what I looked like when I found it there by accident!

I really do not want to put word verification on here.  I usually can't read the words in it. When I am trying to use it on  blogs I visit I can't get my comment on there!  I also really do not want to moderate comments because I will still be dealing with the SPAM (I think?).    

I would LOVE to hear what you are doing about this?  It is actually keeping me from posting because I am deleting 20-30 spam comments a day!  

Help please! :)

I want feel like THIS again when blogging....
