Banana Pudding

So I've made a promise to myself to try the things I've pinned on Pinterest. Um, I'm gonna be at this for awhile then, trying things that is. Last I looked I had over 10,000 pins. Yep that's a lot of doing. So the easiest is the cooking board. Tried the banana pudding recipe that I found and it was delicious. I've actually made it twice now. Yep that good. The first time I followed the instructions. It was really sweet and almost made me pass out. Just kidding, but it was too sweet for me. So the second time around I used heavy whipping cream instead of cool whip. I just whipped up the heavy cream without sugar and added it instead of cool whip. But I'll give you the link for the original version (here) and if you want to add the heavy whipping cream instead just use a pint of it whipped up and in place of the cool whip. Happy eating. Amanda

Finally Fall

So I've finally decided to decorate for fall. Something I haven't done in the last several years because I just didn't feel up to it. But this year I wanted to and that's a good sign. Nothing over the top or fancy. I've really just fallen in love with all the simple fall arrangements and rooms that I've seen on Pinterest. They inspired me to get off my duff and do something. So I did. Remember we live in a small duplex so things are kinda crowded. So here's fall in my corner of the world. The weather has cooperated a little bit lately and it's not hitting 100 anymore. That's a relief.

I did do one small project. I've had this picture for years now. A harvest print that I still love, but I wasn't in love with the frame or the mat any longer. So I spray painted the frame white and added burlap to the mat. Just a small change, but I love it now. You can spy the finished project on my oak hutch.

Are you done yet? I need a nap. Yep she rules the roost. 
Happy fall everyone. Linking up with Feathered Nest Friday over at French Country Cottage.
