{Git in Mah Belly} Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Ah, Monday. How can I love one day so much, and despise another so completely?! Does anyone bound out of bed excited for Monday? All it signals to me is the end of two fun days.

And our weekend was fun, it was Mr. Sugarplum’s birthday!


We fussed over him and catered all the fun and food to him which is not entirely different from any other weekend:

1. Thai basil; 2. Couples massage; 3. Family bike ride (to a breakfast joint!); 4. What’s left of my Chicken Shawarma

I didn’t quite make the Boston Cream Pie I pictured on Friday (Mr. Sugarplum’s fave), but this recipe was easier pretty tasty!

Chocolate Eclair Dessert


  • 1 large and 1 small box instant vanilla pudding
  • 8oz Cool Whip
  • 1 box graham crackers
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 tub of chocolate frosting

Mix pudding with milk, then fold in the cool whip. Layer graham crackers, filling, graham crackers, filling, graham crackers in a 9×13 pan. Nuke the frosting enough to soften and spread a layer over the top of the final graham cracker layer. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours before serving.

This little blog had a great weekend too! BabyCenter.com was a real sanity/life saver for me during both pregnancies (and even now, it contains some really helpful kid information).

So when Kristina Sauerwein contacted me about featuring my son’s room on her BabyCenter blog, I was so totally flattered! She wrote a really nice piece, and has a great blog. You can check out it out here.

Cassity over at *Remodelaholic* also plucked my guest bathroom makeover out for a feature as well!

You can read it here.

Thanks so much ladies! My Monday is looking up already!

  3. How sweet is that Daddy birthday card? Your chicken shwarma has me suddenly craving my favorite chicken tikka masala. I think I need to raid the fridge now . . .
