Ice Cream Cake

As a child you always looked forward to a time when you would get to have Dairy Queen's ice cream cake. We didn't get them very often because my mom preferred real birthday cake and they were super expensive!

I caught myself wondering if I could recreate the beloved ice cream cake. So I set out to try...I don't know if technically this should be called an ice cream cake or an ice cream bomb? Any suggestions?

You can use a spring form pan if you have one, but I chose to make my cake in a small bowl.

2 types of ice cream you want to use (I used vanilla and chocolate)
Oreo cookies (crushed)
Hot Fudge Sauce
Cool Whip

Let your ice cream set out on the counter to soften up.Line your pan or bowl with plastic wrap.Once your ice cream is soft and spreadable, take it and spread it all along the bottom and sides of the bowl or pan you are using. Once you have an even layer, pop the pan in the freezer to harden back up.While the pan is hardening back u…

Some memories just stick with us, no matter what.

This weekend, while the husband was golfing, I watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Now I have determined that no matter how old I am I will always love Harry Potter books and movies.

It promoted my love of reading and imagination. My favorite quote takes place between Albus Dumbledore and Snape in this movie.

"Even after all this time? Always."

Even after years of a girl being married to another man, having his child and dying he still loved her. That is the kind of love that people dream about. Loving someone completely.

I found this picture and it is wonderful. There are just some things in life that stick with us, no matter our age. Harry Potter is one of those things that you look back at and smile. It makes you think of a good time in your childhood.

Until next time,


Viva Las Vegas

It's been awhile since my last post. 

The husband & I just got back from another vacation to Las Vegas. I swear it's our favorite place to travel. We never get tired of going.

This was our fourth time to vacation in Las Vegas, but we took my parents along this time. I was worried about that because 1. My parents do not gamble much and 2. They don't drink. Despite the odds against them having a good time, I do think they enjoyed themselves!

If you have never been to Las Vegas, let me tell you it is a great place to go for inexpensive travel. The hotels will give you great deals and every hotel has a great pool, so in the summer months when people are flocking to the beaches you could head to Vegas and soak up the sun by the pool!

This is the first time we have ventured out to the Hoover Dam. This was the one thing my Dad wanted to do, so we agreed. It was so pretty and a lot more interesting than I could have imagined! But I was a little anxious the entire time because of h…
