In the Dog House

So my hubby, Caleb, and I recently rescued a puppy- half shepherd half lab- and named her Shakira. So our latest project has been building a dog house. Caleb designed a 3D layout on his computer using his amazing engineering skills. We went out and bought the materials- 2x4s, plywood, shingles, nails, screws, and paint. Then we got to work. Here is pictures of our progress and the finished project!

Raised base and half the walls

All four walls and arched door

With the roof on and Caleb inside

Finished product

Caleb used his new Dremel and even made Shakira a name plate

Paradise Trifle

So I wanted a fruity dessert for our house party tonight. I started searching and I found this: Strawberry Trifle. However I put my own twist on it. I drizzled coconut tequila over the cubed angel food cake before starting the layering process. And instead of vanilla pudding I substituted cheesecake pudding. Yum!

1st Layer: 
I arranged the bananas around the edge so you could see them 
from the side when finished. Just to make it look prettier!

2nd Layer: 
I used strawberries for the outside layer this time. 

Finished! Just topped with whipped cream 
overflowing with yummy goodness!
