HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!
While I'm spending the day grilling out with friends and family, letting all the pups run around together and sipping on festive cocktails, I wanted to leave you with one of my favorite desserts...a berry trifle!
I wanted to make this as low-fat and low-calorie as possible so I used sugar-free vanilla pudding, yummy angel food cake and tons and tons of berries! The little star sandwiches are filled with raspberry jam and you can serve up this gorgeous trifle with Lite Cool Whip, because well, I honestly can't get enough of the stuff.
I'm sharing this recipe over on Miss Casey's blog today The Wiegands so head on over and check it out!
There is just something about summer holidays that make me feel like a kid again and July 4th is definitely one of them. I still look forward to spelling words through the air with my sparklers, eating a juicy cheeseburger hot off the grill (no dieting allowed) and watching the local fireworks show shoot off behind our house. We still lay out blankets, eat firecracker ice pops til our lips turn blue (oh you know which ones I'm talking about) and not gonna lie, it sure is giving me the baby itch.
Chris you did not just read that.
But seriously, it really does make me look forward to sharing these traditions with my kiddos one day, but until then I'm happy to be 8 years old again.
I sure love my little family.
Oliver is truly the only "child" I need right now
and he sure is my little bundle of joy.
Until he decides to chew up my favorite pair of stilettos that I've only worn once and may or may not have spent a small fortune to get.
But I still love him.
