Easy Banana Cream Pie Recipe

Easy Banana Cream Pie Recipe 

Ever since I can remember I’ve been a fan of banana cream recipes. From pies, to shakes, to dessert bars. My mom used to make banana cream pie’s a lot and they were one of my favorite desserts. 



I love how light the pies are. The flavor of banana is never overwhelming. I don’t know about you but I love banana’s but hate when something has such an overpowering banana flavor. 

This recipe I used for my banana cream pie is very easy and very tasty. My kids and my husband loved it. And my husband is not a big dessert fan and he requested me to make it several times this summer.

DIY Wooden Pumpkin Sign

The weather is already changing and I am loving the feeling of fall creeping around the corner. Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons. The weather, hot drinks, Holidays, boots, sweaters, comfy clothes, and the list goes on and on.





I was shopping around for some fall decorations, and while I loved what I was seeing, I thought it would be fun and more unique to create a few of my own decorations. This is my first of several DIY projects I will be posting in the coming weeks. I just love personalizing items that I can use every year to decorate for different seasons.

So I took a trip to Hobby Lobby and found a bunch of great Fall craft options. This wooden pumpkin sign was my favorite find! It is the perfect size to use for a decoration. I can either hang it outside on my door or hang it inside the house for some fun Fall inspired decorations to spice up the house.

What you need:

1 Wooden Pumpkin Sign
1 Acrylic Orange Paint
1 Acrylic Brown Paint
1 Acrylic Black Paint
Stencils
1 Sponge or Paint Brush ( I used both )
Fall Leave cut outs for decoration (or whatever else tickles your fancy! )
Glue
(products linked at the bottom)

Steps to Follow:

1. Paint your pumpkin orange, besides the stem. Leave that alone so you can paint it brown! I put a good amount of paint on my pumpkin and made sure to smooth the strokes out so that it wouldn't look streaky.

2. Paint the stem brown, blending it in slightly with the orange where they meet.





3. Let the paint dry! I let mine sit for an hour to an hour and a half. It dried pretty quickly but I wanted to make sure it wouldn't smear once I started using the stencils.

4. Stencil time! I just used my eyes to figure out where the middle was. I didn't want it to be perfect but feel free to grab a ruler and measure everything out so you can figure out where the middle is.

With the stencils, let your previous letter dry some before stenciling the next. ALWAYS lift the stencil off of the pumpkin and don't slide it off. You will end up smearing the old letters and the new one as well.


Wipe your stencil with a wet paper towel after each letter. That way you wont ruin any future letters you make with the previous paint stuck to the stencil.

5. This next part was the most fun to me! I loved figuring out where I wanted to place all of my leaves. I used regular stick glue to glue mine down and it worked perfectly!

6. Admire your work and hang your pumpkin!Outside, inside, wherever you want!

Post your finished products in the comments or tag me on Instagram so I can see how yours turned out! (Instagram: missbecca1208 )

Thanks for reading!

Corn and Tomato Dip Recipe

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was relaxing and we stayed home most of the weekend, so that was nice after being so busy lately.

Summer time is known for BBQ and get together's with friends. Along with swimming, fireworks, late nights, and just a good time! We get invited to a lot of parties and get together's throughout the summer and I always like to bring something to pass around or if I'm throwing the party I like to make enough snacks for everyone.

The Jaclyn Hill Palette by Morphe Review

Happy Monday everyone! I hope that you had a great weekend! We didn't do too much this weekend, which was fine with me. My husband worked both days so the boys and I just relaxed, did some cleaning and some playing.

Have you ever had your mind made up on a purchase weeks before it released? Ive done it with several things and the Jaclyn Hill Palette was no exception. I was sold once I heard about it. And wanted it even more once she released a picture of the colors. It looked so pretty and I loved the mix of colors she was incorporating in her palette.

Beachbody on Demand Review: How it Works and What you Will Find

Happy Monday! The start of another week. I hope everyone had a great weekend and hopefully you don't have to go back to work until Wednesday and you get an extended holiday weekend! My husband picked up some extra shifts at work so unfortunately he is working today and tomorrow but we didn't really have anything planned anyways.

I'm sure you've heard of Beachbody, unless you live under a rock! Beachbody is a company that sells many different great workout programs along with Shakeology, apparel, performance line (pre workouts, protein shakes, etc.) and they assign you a Beachbody coach. That would be someone like me! I am on a journey to help others feel good about themselves through health and fitness just like it makes me feel great!

21 Day Fix Results

Happy Tuesday! In honor of "Transformation Tuesday", I figured I would share my results from my first round of 21 Day Fix.


I actually finished the program 2 weeks ago and have been meaning to make this post since then. Sorry for the delay but I'm finally getting my butt in gear and starting back up on my blog. And what better way to start than a review of the 21 Day Fix?!

Shakeology Mug Cake

Happy Wednesday! And Happy March 1st! Can you believe it's already March?!? I don't understand where time is going but if it could slow down just a bit that would be great!

 I wanted to share with you a new recipe I tried last night. I have a horrible sweet tooth, and it usually causes me to fail at eating healthy. Once I have one sweet, it turns into 2, then 3, 4,5 ... OK you get the picture. But seriously, I have such a hard time when I am around sweets. Being a mommy of 3 little boys we always have some sort of sweet or snack in the house and sometimes I have no self control and indulge a little too much.

Starting The 21 Day Fix

So here I am, it's supposed to be week 2 of the 21 day fix. I should be starting to get into a routine with the workouts and eating healthier should be getting easier. What's happening instead? I am starting all over with week 1 this week.

I hate to admit defeat, but I messed up my 1st week. I had a rough week personally with sick babies and some personal things and I used it as an excuse to eat horrible. I had fast food, sweets and just didn't eat good at all. I just kept feeling bad for myself and didn't give a crap what I ate. Horrible attitude to have!
