2. Ordered and received my beautiful necklace(s) from Pam  @It’sMeAgainPamela and her Etsy shop Pamela2Heaven. I wore my cross today (see earlier post for pics) and already have gotten so many asking – “Where did you get that?” ....................LOVE IT !!
3. Whipped up a batch of these little yummy cookies. So easy and so GOOD….I even licked the spoon and the BOWL when I was done.  I used the Cool Whip Version.

Easy Lemon Cookies Recipe

1 box lemon cake mix
1 8 oz. container Cool Whip
1 egg
1 tsp. lemon extract
powdered sugar to roll the dough in
Mix cake mix, cool whip, extract and egg in a bowl until combined. The dough will be very sticky and thick. Using a teaspoon (or melon baller) scoop dough into balls and roll in powdered sugar. Bake on parchment lined cookie sheet. 350 for 9-12 minutes. The recipe said that it yielded 42 cookies, I only got @30 - guess mine were TEXAS size.

The recipe using the oil is as follows:
1 lemon cake mix
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs
1 tsp. lemon extract
powdered sugar to roll the dough in

Mix cake mix, oil, extract, and egg in a bowl until combined.  The dough is going to be on the thick side and very sticky.  Scoop into teaspoon size balls and roll in powdered sugar.  Bake on a parchment lined sheet at 350* for 12 minutes.  
(yields 30 cookies)

4. Took all my furbabies in for their yearly check-up. All got a clean bill of health.

5. My hubby has the weekend off and we are having a date night, tonight! I am so excited, he has worked for the last three weekends and been out of town twice….I am ready for some time with my special man !

Happy Friday Ya’ll

    My daughter-in-law, Robyn blogged several weeks ago about how she made her own laundry detergent. I plan on doing that as soon as I finish the LARGE bottle I just bought. Since I was out of softner sheets, I was inspired to make my own. I found this recipe on Countrified Hicks blog -  here. This girl has got it going on. She has some amazing cost cutting, fun, inventive ideas. This is her recipe for fabric softner. 
Since it is just myself and hubby, this container should last us quiet awhile.

Homemade Fabric Softener

                                  6 cups of VERY hot water            3 c. white vinegar
                                  1 (16 oz.) bottle Suave conditioner
                              (I bought soothing lavendar lilac)
I think any brand and scent would work. It is the amount that needs to be the same.

Mix the conditioner and the hot water together and stir until the conditioner is completely dissolved.  Stir in the vinegar and mix well.  I put mine in a pitcher I bought at the dollar store ($ 1) and labeled it myself. The conditioner was on sale for .89cents. I already had the vinegar on hand. Total cost was less than $2.00
(I had to figure in the labor cost)
 You could use a fabric softener bottle or whatever you have lying around the house.  Just be sure to mark the bottle accordingly. I already had a DOWNEY Ball, but if you don't have one or don't want to use one, 
then just add 2 T. into your rinse cycle.

I was very pleased with the softness of the clothes and the light fragance
(can't be too bold or hubby would not like the "girly" smell)


Bad of my favorite pair of TOMS.......
I still love her tho.....

I got my Etsy order from Pamela2Heaven and I couldn't be more excited or pleased. We are RV'ers.....not as much as we would like...but as much as we can. Got this cute little sign for the camper.....
