Monday Made It: Doggy Ice Cream

Hi friends....happy Monday to everyone out there!

Today I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for their weekly linky: Monday Made It!

Over the weekend  I made Rudy a special homemade treat!

You see...... in Kansas the summer heat is awful.  Horrible. Stifling.  

It is like opening an oven door hot!

This heat makes me feel bad for my precious pooch, Rudy.   

I don't know why I feel so bad for her....because 99.9% of the time she is like this.....

Sitting in the air conditioning **peeking** out at the hot, hot, HOT summer day!  Or perhaps she is just SUPER smart and has figured out a way to get a tan and not be in the heat! 

Anyway.....I wanted to make Rudy a tasty treat to cool her down on these hot summer days....so I researched some doggy ice cream recipes and found a GREAT one!

Isn't this a cute little doggy clip art piece...I got it for free @ Brad Fitzpatrick's TPT store!

Three ingredients....that's it! Throw them all together in  a blender and then freeze.  This recipe was super simple to make---and super cheap!

The best part is....Rudy loved it (see below). 

Hope you all stay cool out there (and your pups too!)

Guys......it happened!

TPT featured me on their Facebook page!!!!

You should see how big my smile is right now! Like.....my cheeks hurt!

I'm sure my face probably looks something like this......(if I was a dog)

Or something like this....... (if I was a donkey)

This all came to be when a lovely lady who works for TPT, Tayla, emailed me at the end of of May and told me I had reached a TPT milestone!  Whoop Whoop!

The email and milestone achieveent was great, in iteself.....but then Tayla proceeded to say I would have a freebie featured on the TPT facebook page.



I reached a milestone......AND I get to be on TPT's facebook!?!

Gosh I LOVE TPT!!!!

So I completed a survey and picked a freebie item I wanted to be featured .....and the rest is history!

Thank you TPT!!

The freebie I chose to use are my 3,2,1 reading exit slips!!

You can read about the exit slips here .

OR......you can download them here.

Have a great night everyone!

Currently June

Today I am linking up with Farley for her monthly linky, Currently

Listening to the Today Show.....during the school year this is impossible.  BUT...during the summer I can!  The Today Show is one of my favorite programs.....and one of the many perks of the summer!

Loving that summer is here!  What I love more is that even though it is summer...the summer temperatures are not here!  We have been in the 60's to mid 70's since May.  That's heaven for Kansas! 

Thinking tomorrow I turn 30!  OMG.....30...I can't believe I will be starting my third decade!

Wanting to find my motivation.  There are so many things on my "Summer To Do List" that I need to get checked off.

Needing to book a hotel room for Kansas City.  My fabulous husband is taking me to Kansas City for the weekend for my birthday gift.  I have always wanted to go to a Kansas City Royals baseball game....and he is taking me!  Waaaa hoo!  We are also going on a stadium tour and eating at my favorite place....The Cheesecake Factory!  I can't wait!

Summer Lovin' includes visiting my sister in PA in the middle of June.  She is graduating from a dietetics internship...and I'm so proud of her!  I can't wait to see her....I'm lucky that my sister (and husband) are my best friends! I am also SUPER excited for my sorority's reunion in mid-July!  So many fun summer things going on.......

If you go back to Farley's post....you can read about the fabulous organization called WAG (Wimberely Adoption Group), or you can read a news article about it here.  I donated and encourage all of you reading this to donate too!  Like Farley said,  "If everyone donates one dollar....I could deliver a nice donation check to WAG."
