Happy Thursday Friends! Can you believe Valentine’s Day is only a few days away? If you’re still in need of outfit inspirations, I’m brining you this darling pearl beaded blouse. It is the perfect blouse to go out and celebrate with your other half on a date night or with your closest gals for brunch. But besides the pearls, did you spot the other details? I mean the sleeves are quite the statement, a delicate one but a statement nonetheless.
Did you know that today is National Pie Day? Yes, there’s such a thing. In an effort to share more easy and delicious recipes with you, I whipped up these strawberry cream pies. Not only are these perfect to celebrate today but also for entertaining. 😉
Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I think these would be perfect for a Gal-entine’s Party treat. Because they’re super easy to make, you could make it a fun family activity and treat! Or even make them for your office party. The possibilities are endless and these are a real crowd pleaser.
The best part is that only a handful of ingredients are needed to put together these delicious individual pies. You will need already made pie crust, if you want to take the easy route – I did! If you’re into making your own crust, you can find an easy recipe online. You will also need; Strawberries, Jell-o, Cool Whip, hot/cold water and ice. That’s it! Now, to make them, keep scrolling…
Making Strawberry Cream Pies
First, start with adding boiling water to a bowl and mixing in the Jell-o, making sure to stir until jell-o is dissolved. Then add the cold water and ice, the mix will slightly firm. You can set it aside for a few minutes to help it firm. Once the mix has sat out for a few minutes, you can whisk in the cool whip. It should now be fluffy and you can add the strawberries at this point. Now, add the filling to the pie crusts and refrigerate for a few hours. They will continue to firm in the refrigerator and once you remove them, you can garnish them as desired, with whipped cream, fresh strawberries, etc.
In preparation for the Valentines Day school party, my oldest and I decided to do a DIY t-shirt. Our Valentine’s Day included quite a few DIYs! Did you check out the Backyard photo shoot I did with the girls?
Back to the t-shirt! I had seen a fairly easy tutorial on Pinterest. So, after looking over the instructions, we headed to Hobby Lobby for some supplies! And bought a Gildan brand Youth Small Short Sleeve T-Shirt and a Pink Fabric Creations Soft Fabric Ink.
