fun stuff...

so the shabby chicks made funfetti blondies last weekend.
can you say FUN?
and FANTASTIC?
and SUPER DELICIOUS???
we found these on pinterest,
followed the trail to sixsisters.blogspot.com
and found the yummy recipe.  
they can be eaten plain or frosted.
we used a light, whipped frosting and it was perfect...
not too sweet...just right.
give them a try...you will LOVE every bite...and they will be gone fast!
Ingredients:
  • 1 box yellow (or Funfetti!) cake mix
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles (if you use a yellow cake mix, add these in)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips 
  • Sprinkles for the top
  • Frosting (see recipe below)
Directions: Combine the cake mix, oil, and egg in a large bowl. Add the milk slowly – you want the batter to remain as dense as possible. Then mix in the rainbow sprinkles and white chocolate chips. Put batter in a 8x11" pan (or 9x9" pan would work too!). Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees. (They will be a little soft/gooey in the middle- just let them sit for about 20-30 minutes and they will set up. But I guarantee that you will not be able to wait that long.) Frost when cooled (optional . . . these taste amazing with or without frosting.  but given a choice, we ALWAYS go with frosted:)

more FUN stuff...
remember awhile back when I wrote about my girl Jordan and her
swim for ms?
 (you can read it here)
she has a web page for it here
and apparently good news travels because the Naples Daily Newspaper
found out about it and want to interview her for an article
in the paper.
 today, she had the photo shoot at the pool...
(told you.......fun stuff:)
wow...it's amazing what photographers do to get that one good shot.
(news flash...she will probably not be happy with any of them.....wet hair.....haha)
but it was fun...and we celebrated at the pool with a banana smoothie!
 good times!!!
