Scratch off ticket FREEBIE, Sunday Spotlight, Pinterest Recipes

Just by my title, I have had a SUPER busy day! I have...gone grocery shopping, vacuumed the whole house, 3 loads of laundry, deep cleaned one bathroom, and made two...yes TWO Pinterest recipes that I highly recommend you try:)

1. Homemade frappuccino! Now, I am a HUGE Starbucks fan! But...I am trying, really trying not spend money there. My husband and I have a nice/fancy/expensive espresso machine at home (we bought from Starbucks) and I really should use it more. So I did some Pinterest searching and found this recipe!

Who knew to add instant vanilla pudding mix to your drink...delicious!

2. I had 4 huge bananas that were screaming "Cook me"...so I listened! Again, I went to Pinterest and wanted to try something new. I found, what I thought, looked like a yummy banana cake recipe! The recipe was, well..a bit odd since it was a lower temp for a longer time, but I followed the directions to a T. The 976 reviews this recipe has is right...it is W.O.N.D.E.R.F.U.L!

Here is my picture of the cake! YUMMY!

OK...onto my Sunday Spotlight! Heather over at Kickin' it in Kinder has an amazing blog! She has some FANTASTIC ideas!
Heather and I both at the same time had the button/lanyard idea! They say that great minds think alike:) She has some other buttons right now that I would have never thought to come up with! They are SUPER CUTE:) And if you leave a comment, you can get them for free:)

She also has a great tutorial right now about how to create a blog button! I think I may just have to try it out sometime:) Go check Heather out! You will LOVE her blog

OK...now onto my scratch off ticket freebie! I am SOOOOOOO close to 200 followers! 19 to be exact! I have a really awesome 200 follower give-a-way that I want to do but I can't yet! So I need your help getting me to the 200 mark!

If you post this picture and write about me being SO close to 200 followers on your blog I will give you a set of scratch off tickets for free...of your choice! Just make sure to comment with the link so I can see where you posted it at!

My sport theme ones are done too! 


Thanks everyone! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and see you tomorrow for Monday Made it:)

OHHH...one more thing! My buttons and lanyards "ask me what I got on my test" are for FREE in my TPT and TN shop! I decided I am not going to sell them! YEAH!
