This post is all about my obsessions!
1) my obsession with food!
Does look scrumptious or what???
And seriously.. there are no points in it and its huge!

WEgmans is making these giant rice cakes.. 16 calories a piece. They are pretty much like eating styrofoam if you eat them by their selves.. but!.. if you make up a batch of my jello fluff stuff let it set and them spoon a ton of it on top of the rice cake, and then squirt some light whipped cream on top.. its like eating lemon pie! And best of all.. there are no points in this.. You can eat a LOT Of it if you want to! so good!

need I say more? Look how absolutely freaken adorable this baby is!
their eyes are opening today. they will be one week old tomorrow!
They are sooooo freaken purrfectly precious!

Creating cute stuff! This week Ive been working on a couple projects. I made a beachy pinkeep. I love these little pink flamingos. I got a bunch of them last time I went to Ocean City at a bar! I'm hoping they have more of them when I get there next week!
I suppose they would be pretty easy to make though! Isnt he cute?

I made another one like this a couple years ago, but it was a little different.
Made this little guy this weekend too. this is just a sneak peek, because he is going out in the mail to someone soon! I dont know if she comes on my blog or not, I hope it doesnt ruin her surprise!
Well, its quarter after 11:00 and I should get myself ready for bed. I have a lot to do to get ready to go this weekend. I need to make some lists!!
night night and sweet dreams all!

That looks yummy! How do you make your "fluff"?

Your kitties are precious--so sweet!

Love your pinkeeps, too--you're one creative woman, Viv!

Hope you're having a great night!

Oh how I miss Wegmans!!! When we lived in NY there was one, but here in Michigan it just doesn't exist!!!

Thanks so much for the encouraging words on Weight Watchers!!
How long has it taken to lose the 55 pounds? That's exactly the amount I want to lose, so I'm wondering what I should realistically be looking at here! lol!! So far I've lost 5 pounds... I've been hoping for 10 by the 26th of June... and you're right... you eat *SO MUCH* food to make it to those points every day!!!

Oh, and how can kittens NOT be an obsession? Especially yours, they're so cute!!!

Persuaded said...

Oh Viv, we love those CocoPops! Except I like mine with hummus... Amelia likes hers with raspberry honey. Noah likes his with chocolate-hazelnut spread... Miki likes hers any old way♥ Yummmmmmeeeeeee

Cathy said...

I love the little blue bird that you made with your art sisters. I saw it on "inspire co." blog. Did you just wing it or do you work from a pattern?

Lori said...

Hey there, sweet, wonderful and amazingly talented friend!
Thank you so much for posting about that faux lemon pie stuff. It looks so yummy. I can't wait to try it.
And, that baby!!!! OMG. I LOVE that baby and the others AND Frannie and Figgy and Mama Vivian. : ) I think I'm obsessed with them, too. : )
And, those pink flamingo pinkeeps are to die for. I want one! How can I get one?? Money? Swap? You name it! Honest, my friend.
Love you lots and lots, lovely lady,

Oh, my Vivian. I can see why these are all obsessions. No point pie! I love it. Pink kitty paws are the sweetest. If only i wasn't allergic, I would have a houseful. And your pinkeep...your creativity shines on and on.

Hey Sweet Viv,

Been awhile since I visited. I've only read a couple of post so I have a lot of catching up to do. Your kitties are adorable. I love lemon pie...what is your jello fluff? Share, share share!

Have a great time in OC, MD. That is our stomping ground every summer...Ocean front condo on 43rd st!.


Jackie said...

I want to call the flamingo FANCY...she is cute as can be! Just a quick stop by tonight...Jasmine rice and lemon chicken is waiting...and a glass of wine...tah tah my dear and cheers!

Kai said...

YUM! Now THAT'S a delicious-looking snack! The kitties? OMG! I just want to cuddle them. Love, love, love your flamingo pinkeep! I NEED some of those flamingos! LOL! I met a group of ladies a year ago at Barnes & Noble - all in their upper 70s to mid-eighties - and one of them collects all things flamingo! I've crocheted them for her, bought them in various forms at different places - but NEVER found any cute LITTLE ones like those! I'm going to MISS you when you go on vacation, Viv! You always have such great blog posts! They just make me SMILE! LOVE YOU!

Hi Viv,
So much to catch up on over here. I see that you've added to your little family again (with the kitties)...SO PRECIOUS!!
And it looks like you had a wonderful time with your Niagara Sisters. I'm so glad you did.
Thank you for your kind words when my mom passed. You're a sweetie.

Great post, Viv! Love that pink flamingo!!


Creative Breathing said...

EAK! Vivian! I am in the process of making a pink flamingo myself, I so wish I had seen yours first! Oh my gosh is it ever cute! I must make a big pom pom one. I wanted to let you know I have mailed two packages to you today. One the felt - it can be ironed to remove wrinkles. The other box is just a thank you to you for being you! I hope you like it!
