Chocolate Chip Pudding & Brownie Trifle

This recipe was something I thought I had thought up all by myself. Until I "googled" it. And found that it really is a thing. But it's so easy I wanted to share it anyway!

 This is such an easy and pretty dessert for Valentine's Day! You could switch out the flavors to make a combination like brownies and peanut butter cookies. 

1 Large tub of cool whip, cookies, brownies and pudding.

This is basically all you need! I originally got this idea because someone had blessed me with a lot of cookie and brownie mixes that they had bought but weren't going to use. I wanted a way to use them up quickly. I don't need all these carbs! We had a fellow church goer pass away and we took food to them. So I made this trifle in a plastic bowl rather than a trifle bowl. 

Gather all your ingredients together. I made chocolate chip cookies, and dark chocolate brownies. The pudding is just 2 large boxes and 1 small box of original instant chocolate. I did not put the full amount of milk in so it would be thicker. I also folded in about 1 cup of the cool whip into the pudding before layering. I didn't get a picture of that. 

Then start layering!

Just keep going until you get this!

This needs to sit overnight so the brownies and cookies can kind of mush into the pudding a little bit.

Since having dropped this off at the family's house, I have received SO many comments about it. They said the bowl was scraped clean and that people were raving about it! I found this almost humorous, because it is so easy!

If you try it, let me know what flavor combinations you try!

Hope you enjoy it and that you have a Happy Valentine's Day!

My $100 Kitchen Cabinet Makeover!

I'm so excited to share today's post. It's something I've been working on for about 2 months, on and off. But it is finished and so today I'm sharing how we renovated our kitchen cabinets for about $100.
When we bought our house in a little over a year ago, I fell in love with the kitchen just by the listings photos.

UPDATE!!! Check out this post to see how I also stained my island!

It was HUGE and there was about a billion cabinets. The kitchen in our old house was a pretty good size also and I knew I would not be content with a smaller kitchen. So these pictures sold me.
We bought the house and moved in and I lived with the kitchen for awhile but the cabinet color was really bugging me. I liked the counter tops well enough but they clashed with the cabinets. We did not have the money to replace all those cabinets so the next decision was to either paint or stain them.
I stumbled upon General Finishes Gel Stain and thought the idea of it was awesome. There's …

$5 Laundry "Room" Update

I don't have a laundry room.

I have a laundry closet right off the kitchen. I actually love it there because it is so convenient to keep laundry going through out the day. I wish it was a little bigger and I have future plans down the road, but for now I have to keep it organized or there is just not enough room for it all!

Here was the state of my closet before. Not too bad, but there were things in there that shouldn't be in there (a sprinkler??) and it just was cluttered. Not to mention plain and boring.
I think I've mentioned before on here how much I love Dollar Tree. If not, I'll say it now. I love Dollar Tree! They have some of the cutest stuff! So I went there today to find some things to organize this with. Here's what I came up with.

I bought the 3 aqua colored baskets today and the green and gray tray I was already using. 
I wiped everything down and got to work. This is what it looks like now.

The two hanging baskets underneath are simply hooked through…

Farmhouse Bathroom Makeover in Purple & White

I get these ideas and they just won't let up until I can actually do them. My mom calls these "getting a bee in my bonnet".

Well, I had a bee in my bonnet yesterday.

This was our main bathroom when we moved in. These were the seller's towel and shower curtain.They had obviously updated a few things in this bathroom. But there is no window and it is very dark and dreary in here. Also, the paint was in a flat finish which shows up every dirty mark and imperfection. Plus, I just hated the color. It looks grey, but it's like a greige. I call it the color of cement. Blech.
So yesterday I had had it. The seller left the paint they used and there was a full gallon of the semi-gloss extra white they had used on the baseboards, doors and trim. I love the look of bead board in bathrooms when it goes up about 2/3 of the way. But we weren't messing with that right now. I was hoping I could get a similar effect by just painting the walls white 2/3 of the way up. I then th…
