DIY Pet First Aid Kit

So I was reading an article a couple months ago about having a first aid kit for your animals, and I thought "that's a really good idea".  I had a ton of odd and end stuff around that all belong to the kiddos and no place in particular that I store them.  So yesterday I finally got around to picking them up a bin and some red duct tape, and this morning put together our very own Pet First Aid Kit!

This is the spread sheet that I created and stuck in the top of our first aid kit:

Happy Birthday to Me!

So today was my birthday!  I love birthday's because for exactly 24 hours you get to celebrate yourself and not seem into yourself.  SO, Sunday my parents took me out to eat at Bravo!  for dinner, then today I woke up to this......

Thanks to my parents and my wonderful husband! 

Then I made my own birthday cupcakes!  Spumoni Cupcakes, that I found via Pinterest (here), here's a look at them.....

Homeade Dunkaroo's

I don't know if you all remember these little treats, but I most defiantly do!  They were my favorite as a kid.  Well the majority of this week I have been sick, I started out with strep at the beginning  of the week, got a killer sinus infection through the end of the week and this weekend, along with my monthly gift from God himself!  So needless to say, I felt like a treat was in store for me! 

I have been obsessed with my waffle iron since Rachael Ray did her waffle week a couple of weeks ago.  SO, I went to the dollar store and purchased a box of Funfetti cake mix and icing. Brought it home and fixed the mix according to the box.

Warmed up my waffle iron, sprayed it liberally with cooking spray and this time I was smart and put wax paper under my iron so that all of the clean-up will be easy.  Then I filled the crevasses and and made cake waffles.

I let the waffle iron run through one cycle.  They were just a little crunchy, if you are looking for more crunch let them sit for two cycles.  But I didn't really want crunch.  Once I took them out, I cut them into strips and served them with a side of icing.

Watch me clean UP!

Now you see it......
