Important Question: Can you spot the vacuum cleaner in this picture?

The other day it was time to vacuum my room since the dog has decided that he can lay on the floor and shed in here anytime he wants. (Oh, and, because I have long hair and I shed too. I guess it could be partially my fault.)

Ok so cue the fun story: I go to the laundry room to get our big GREEN/BLACK vacuum. Ladies and Gents, this is not a large laundry room by any means. Washer, dryer, rug, vacuum, mop, trash can...thats about it. So I look and I look and I LOOK and I look in the living room and I consider texting my roomies to ask about it but I can't find the big GREEN/BLACK vacuum. Grudgingly, I resort to using our old yellow one. I even have to move some things to pry the old yellor vacuum out of its spot wedged between the washer and the wall.
When I went to put it back, I noticed something in the laundry room. Something big and GREEN/BLACK. Can you see it??

Fake Fotoshop Fun

Hi Gang!

I discovered GIMP, a free photoshop like software, and have been using it to turn photos into coloring pages. Unfortunately I am not kind enough to post each link I used to discover all of this but with a few swift google searches you can find the same and then make this:

Print and color, baby!!! Then I found another website that makes word searhes and crossword puzzules. (Hint: I'm making an activity book!!!) I heart internet!

*Edit: Those with toddlers - how much would Grandma love a picture of her and the kiddo that the kiddo COLORED? So cute.

And lastly, so I don't lose this, I got this recipe from my cousin. I can't wait to make it!

Grasshopper Pie:

22 Large Marshmellows
1/3 cup Creme de Menthe
1 (12) ounce Carton Whipping Cream, Whipped
1 (9inch) prepared Chocolate piecrust
step 1: In Large saucepan, melt marshmellows with Creme de menthe over low heat and cool.
step 2: fold cream into Marshmellow mixture.
step 3: Pour Filling into piecrust and freeze ...untill ready to serve.

That's it! Super easy. Be sure to get the Green cream de menthe so that way the color is green. And just whip the whipping cream til you get soft peaks, don't over whip or it turns out kind of lumpy! (I know from expierence. hehe) you want it nice and smooth! Enjoy!!
