As you browse Pinterest things are so pretty, perfect and I pin away. Imagine this great life of mine full of perfection and perfect things. Then I look around my house and well reality sets in. It’s a little, or a lot, mismatched, there are toys spread across the floor. There may, just may, be some dust and dirt under the couch. The thoughts of perfection go flying out the window as soon as I thought them. It was just really a blink and they were out the door. I’ll never have one of those perfectly styled houses or cute little mantel displays that change with the seasons. I try to cope with that in the best way possible.

The best way possible? You know what that is? Looking and my two beautiful daughters that are happy and loved. Yup. I can do that. And darn I do it well, most of the time. Sure we get short tempers at times and they push our buttons more often then we would like to admit but I love them fiercely and when they ask for “cuddles Mama” when I want to go do my workout I sit in the rocking chair and soak it up. They know they are loved and they are happy. They don’t care if things are perfect in the house or things match. They just care about the hugs, cuddles and time they spend with us.


I’m all for easy things when it comes to Pinterest. This my friends is totally easy. You can do this. You can make time because it only takes 15 minutes! It’s a beautiful thing isn’t it? If you see this festive treat on Pinterest PIN IT! You can do it! You don’t have to pin it and then look at your boards and think of all the time you wish you had to do those things. Or is that only me?

    This post made me grin — if my kids were still in grade school I would definitely send in a batch to class on St Paddy’s Day!

    These are so fun and festive! My lil guy would love making these with me 🙂 So true, as long as they have snuggles and love – that’s all that matters 🙂 These would make the perfect St. Patrick’s treats!

  • soumia

    These look great! How many drops of green food colouring did you add? 🙂

    • Julie Evink

      Ah I can’t remember! Just keep adding till you like the green color. It’s different if you use regular food dye v.s. a gel dye too. I used the gel dye so I wouldn’t have used as much!

  • Cathy Trochelman

    These are so simple and perfect for St. Paddy’s Day!

  • Melanie

    These look delicious, and perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!

    Do they need to be refrigerated in order to set?

    • Julie Evink

      Nope! They’ll set up just like Rice Krispie Bars!
