1 box yellow cake mix (& ingredients to make cake)
2 box (small) instant banana pudding
4 c milk
8 oz whipped topping
20 vanilla wafers, crushed
sliced bananas - use your own judgment


1 Follow the direction on the cake mix box to prepare the actual cake. Prepare it in a 9 x 13" pan. When golden, remove from over and let cool for a few minutes.
2 When just slightly cooled, use the end of a wooden spoon (the handle end) to poke holes into the baked cake. Don't be shy; make the holes big enough for the pudding to seep into and go deep enough with the spoon that you hit the bottom of the pan.
3 Next, prepare your pudding mixture. Combine your 4 cups of milk and the instant pudding mix; whisk until fully combined and there are no lumps.
4 Now it's time to fill those holes! Pour the pudding mixture ver the entire cake, taking care to get it into all your holes. Use the spoon to help really get it into the cake and spread evenly.
5 Refrigerate for apx two hours... or until set. Top with whipped topping, crushed vanilla wafers and sliced banana! Serve and enjoy.


Wow! Poor Isabella is cutting her first tooth! Xavier didn't appear to be as uncomfortable as she appears to be...tears... as I put my Nuby teething toys in the freezer. On a side note. I can't believe Summer is already here! Looking forward to lots of Summer deals. Bring it on!

What Matters Most to Me!!

Just like every month in the life of a mom, September is full of milestones and special moments. From first-day-of-school photos to Labor Day barbecues, these are the moments that we'll cherish forever. September is also Life Insurance Awareness Month (LIAM), which is the perfect time to think about protecting the most important people in our lives.

While life insurance might not be top-of-mind for most moms, we can all agree that it offers peace of mind and helps ensure that the life we've worked so hard to achieve for our loved ones won't disappear if something were to happen to us. The LIFE Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping consumers make smart insurance decisions, recognizes that it's hard to imagine the unimaginable.

That's why they have created the new Facebook Application called "What Matters Most to Me" and are sponsoring a contest around it during September.

facebook app

The "What Matters Most to Me" App allows us to indulge in our love of sharing photos and memories with our family and friends. In a matter of minutes, the App helps you easily create a multimedia slideshow - pictures, captions and music! - showcasing the important people and things in your life. When you create and post your multimedia masterpiece on Facebook through September 30, you are eligible to win a trip to Aruba, where the winner and one guest will spend five days enjoying the white sands and blue waters in this tropical paradise, and relaxing at the Radisson Resort, Casino & Spa.


And don't forget to show off your slideshow and make a difference in the process! For every friend on Facebook who indicates that they "like" your slideshow, $1 will be donated to Comfort Zone Camp, the nation's largest bereavement camp serving children who've lost a parent, sibling or primary caregiver.

Swap 'n' Share

Back-to-school time is here, and for most Moms that means back to car-pooling, homework monitoring and of course, packing lunches. It can be hard to come up with lunches made with real, simple ingredients that kids will eat and actually enjoy. Luckily, Hellmann's® and Best Foods® Mayonnaise are putting the fun back into lunch this September with their virtual Sandwich Swap 'n' Share program.

Celebrity chef Bobby Flay and actress/mom Lori Loughlin are teaming up with Hellmann's® to help re-launch Hellmann's® virtual Sandwich Swap 'n' Share on the Facebook® application (Facebook.com/Hellmanns). This virtual version of the beloved school lunch ritual of swapping sandwiches will benefit Share Our Strength®, the leading non-profit organization ending childhood hunger in America.
When people visit Hellmann's® Page on Facebook®, they'll have the opportunity to create a sandwich on the application and, for every sandwich built, Hellmann's® will make a donation to Share Our Strength®. What's more, when they share a sandwich with a friend, an additional donation will be made as part of Hellmann's® $75,000 commitment to support Share Our Strength®.

So what are you waiting for???

"Rumpled to Runway"

As Moms, we pull a lot of things together, from weekday meals to our little ones' back-to-school wardrobes. However, usually what suffers is our own wardrobe, as we pull wrinkled garments over our heads to make it out the door on time! Luckily, our favorite Mom/Brand team is getting together to show women everywhere how to go from rumpled to runway.

Electrolux and brand ambassador Kelly Ripa are partnering with some fashion-savvy bloggers to host a special fashion show to help raise awareness and funds to support ovarian cancer research.

Since September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, this fashion-focused event couldn't have come at a better time! This fun and innovative fashion show will demonstrate how Perfect Steam™, and a little fashion ingenuity, can take any garments from "Rumpled to Runway".

Even if you're not in the Big Apple to watch in person, you can cheer them on LIVE at www.Kelly-Confidential.com TODAY at 1 PM EDT. You can also follow along at Facebook/KellyConfidential and on Twitter @KCbyElectrolux.

Find out how you can help support the cause at Kelly Confidential and enter for a chance to win a daily shopping spree and the grand prize: a Perfect Steam™ washer and dryer from Electrolux.
