This is what I made today . . .

This is what I made this morning. Yum! Quite simply the best Banana Bread recipe in the world - from this Martha Stewart book - of course! 

I am also baking (my first) raspberry pie. The kids and I went raspberry picking earlier this week and we picked nearly 4 lbs of raspberries! So, I'll show you and let you know how it goes once I finish it, and of course have had a tasting! :) 
Later today we are taking our adorable dog to the dog park and let the kids do a little swimming in the nearby river. It should be a fun wrap up for the last full week of summer before school starts next week for my daughter. 
This weekend I have lots to do! I need to go do a little school shopping for my kids and get a lot of crafting wrapped up, including finishing up my projects for next weeks' reveal of the Little Black Dress Kit Club September kit, a few submissions, and  also starting in on my next Crate Paper tutorial. I know what it's going feature and I CANNOT wait to show you!! 
Don't forget to check back on Monday for my fully loaded (VERY photo heavy) post for my August Gallery over at Elle's Studio
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for stopping by today!! :) I've got to get crackin' on that pie! :D
