Toadally Yummy Tuesday...or Saturday???

Okay, I know it's not Tuesday but I thought it is time for a new recipe since it has been a while. This one is a extra sweet dessert that is good warm or straight from the fridge and the best part, it's super easy!

Sopapilla Cheesecake


2 8oz tubs of cream cheese

2 8oz tubes of crescent rolls

1tsp of vanilla

1 1/2 cups of sugar

1/2 cup of cinnamon sugar

9x13 inch pan

1 stick of butter


Open one tube of crescent rolls and line the bottom of the 9x13 inch pan with the crescent rolls laying flat. Mix the sugar, softened cream cheese, and vanilla together until smooth. Pour the mixture over the crescent rolls. Open up the last tube of crescent rolls and lay them flat on top of the cream cheese mixture. Pour the melted butter on top of the crescent rolls and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the melted butter. Cook at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve warm or put it in the fridge. Either way is yummy!

New Look, New Puppy, I must be crazy!

Today I decided to give my blog a makeover. It was getting a little boring around here lately and I was ready for something new, something to spice up my blog. I have a little bit of self diagnosed ADD and I get bored with things pretty quickly. But getting bored with my blog was not something I wanted to let happen so I opted for a new layout design. Isn't it adorable? You can find your own layout design at and the best thing about the website's backgrounds...they're free! Gotta love that!

In other news, we adopted a puppy. Well, let me rephrase that...I found a puppy off the street, brought him home where we discovered he was sick, took him to the vets, found out he had Parvo, and now he is trying to recover at the vets over the next few days. We are praying this precious puppy makes it. The kids just love him, I love him, and I do not want to have to teach them this life/death lesson so soon after getting a puppy that they have wanted for SO long. So if you wouldn't mind dear reader, could you say a little prayer for our Pumpkin and that he makes a full recovery from this horrible virus? And please, please, please remember to get your pet vaccinated. Parvo is completely preventable if dogs are vaccinated appropriately and on time.

Have a good night!

God Makes Rainbows

Tonight I am sitting on the couch. I am reading some of my favorite blogs and Buddy is sitting on the other couch across from me watching Ice Age:Dawn of the Dinosaurs (one of his favorites).

At one point in the movie, there is a scene that shows a rainbow. Buddy turns to me all excited and says, Look Mommy! There's a rainbow!

Me: I see, a rainbow!

Buddy: Can we get one?

Me: No Buddy. Only God makes Rainbows.

Buddy: Can He make one for us?

Me: Yes, He will make one for us.

Buddy: YES! (with a small fist pump)

I love this kid and his sweet heart.
