Tie from my Wedding

Spring Time Tie for Hubby
I went to tiecoon for ties for my wedding. They have a range of ties in all different styles for $5. That price is hard to beat anywhere else and they have nice looking ties. I went with the Harry Potter Tie for my wedding. Recently, they had a promotion where you could get a free tie and you would just have to pay $5 or so in shipping. I picked up a spring time (white with blue stripes) tie for my husband. They're having the promotion again where you can get $5 off your order (and they have ties for just $5). Sign up for an account and use the discount code SPRING. The offer ends Sunday. These ties are great for weddings, father's day gifts or just for that special someone.

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Pie

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

I asked my husband what he would like for dessert for his birthday and he said Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Pie, but without whip cream, just graham cracker crust and ice cream. I started pinteresting ideas, but ended up making a slightly different version.

I couldn't find chocolate graham crackers, but I did find chocolate fudge striped Keebler cookies. I smashed them up, mixed the chunks with butter and baked at 350 degrees for ten minutes. After the crust was cooled, I placed softened mint chocolate chip ice cream in the crust, drizzled it with hot fudge and the remaining cookies. I placed in the freezer until dinner time.

It was before his birthday, but my husband and our dinner guests enjoyed their dessert. It was also super easy to do!

Crochet Flower

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

I saw this cute headband with a crochet flower and decided that I wanted to learn how to make one. I learn how to do things best through watching so I found a YouTube tutorial. It didn't take long to do - about 20-30 minutes. The flower looked a little big for a headband so I placed it on a plain brown scarf that I crocheted previously. I made little green ovals for leaves and attached it to the scarf as well. A flower really dressed up the scarf.
