Composition Book up-do

This week I have been playing host to my super cute and sassy 11 yr old niece, McKenzie.
She and I have been doing all sorts of things this week and I have to say that she has been super...and I mean super SPOILED.
One of the things I love about her is that she is crafty. Since she was a little girl she has loved art and anything that involves crafts. ANYWAY she kept drawing in a book all week and I told her that we could make her drawing book a whole lot cuter and she was on board. I also thought that while we were at it we might as well make a few more for her school subjects. Here is what we came up with.

Guess what the best part is? I figured that just about every girl out there needs a cute little notebook to write in so you get the chance to win 2 of these beauties...but the better part is that 3 of you get to win.

Here is all you need to do to win.

1. You must be a public follower of heathershouse2home and leave me a comment telling me which ones you would like if you win.

That's it :)

The contest will run from 7/29(today) until midnight Aug 6th. The winner will be chosen by
(Open to US residents only)

My current absence from Blog land

Argh, so I have not been able to Blog as much as I would like to as of late. I am sure those of you who regularly stop by have noticed.
Well I do have a reason..well 2 reasons and they are actually acceptable excuses.
1st excuse is I have gone back to school and I am currently taking the devils subject..I mean Math. I have a very complicated relationship with Math....I guess you could just say that I really stink at it so needless to say it is taking a HUGE amount of my time lately.

The 2nd of my absence excuses is because my hubby and I have been working on one of the BIGGEST home improvement projects that I think we have ever taken on. It is also taking tons and tons of time. Plus it makes my muscles hurt. I think I may have already gone through a jar of Ibuprofen..seriously. I had better be built after this :)

The best thing is that my part of the improvement project will be done by next Tuesday night and then I will get to sit back and watch someone else do the work...wanna sneak peek of what it is? ..... Too bad. HAHA.

Candy Bar Pie

While I was at girls camp a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of eating some pretty tasty food. One of the best things I had was this pie that a fellow leader had prepared.
Can I say yummmmm!

The best part is that it only takes a little bit of prep and barely any time to throw together.

Here are the ingredients:

Vanilla Ice cream, Whipped topping, candy bar of your choice, caramel ice cream topping, Magic shell Chocolate topping, Graham cracker Pie crust.

The prep for this is simple. First take the ice cream and whipped topping out of the freezer and let it thaw out a bit so it is easier to spread and mix.
The second thing is to bash up your candy bars. That's right grab a meat mallet and take out your aggression on your tasty treats :)

Sample the candy to make sure the taste is right...

yep mine is good.

Now lets get down to making this yummy dessert.

Take your graham cracker crust and your magic shell Chocolate. Squirt a bit of the chocolate into the shell.

and then make sure you swirl it around to coat the bottom.

Next take your ice cream that has slightly thawed...(You will only want about half of your container)
 and your whipped topping (half of this container as well) and combine them with your pre-bashed candy bars. (leave a bit of candy bar to spread on top when finished)

After you have mixed it all up take about half and spoon it into your pie crust and then top it with some more of that magic shell and caramel sauce.

Next take the remaining half of the mixture and smooth it all out.

Take the remaining part of the candy bar and sprinkle it over the top and add some more of that caramel for good measure.

Here you have it, a very simple and tasty dessert compliments of my friend Camille...thanks by the way Camille, I am addicted ;)
