.....oh yes I did!

Guess what I did last Saturday.....?

I pushed a Fire Truck 50 feet....up a hill....


Well....it wasn't exactly a hill....more like an incline....BUT IT FELT LIKE A HILL!

And I didn't exactly do it myself....4 other ladies from my Orange Team helped ......

BUT HEY! When's the last time YOU pushed a fire truck 50 feet?

For the Valley's Biggest Loser challenge on Saturday we were divided into groups of 5 to see which color team could push that thing the farthest. My Orange team didn't win but BOY WAS THAT EXHILIRATING!!#%&!

(that's me in the white headband)

GO, GO, GO,.........

YIKES!!! (look away please...)


So, if you have a Fire Truck that needs to be moved, just let me know and I'll come push it for you....because I can do that!

Tasty Treats

I Made ice cream sandwiches with the Grandkids last night........

#1) First we made cake mix cookies:

1 box cake mix, any flavor

1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
Blend well. Scoop (or use teaspoons) onto parchment covered cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Let cool completely.

#2) choose a co-ordinating ice cream and let it get a little bit soft:

#3) Scoop ice cream onto cookies and spread to cover:

#4) Top with a second cookie, place in a zip lock baggie, and freeze til firm.

#5) EAT!

When you're 5, what's better than eating an ice cream sandwich that's as big as your head?!!

There was much conversation about different cake and ice cream combinations for next time.....

apparently I'll be going to the store today for lemon cake mix and rainbow sherbet!
