Hi Everyone!!
Happy September! I can't believe how fast the summer flew by! Well, actually I am glad summer has flown by, I have had enough of the heat and humidity! I am ready for cooler days, pumpkin spice lattes (well, pumpkin everything) and changing out my spring/summer wardrobe to my fall/winter wardrobe. I love fall fashion and I do have a few new fall items to add to my fall wardrobe (you will seem them in “This Week's Favorites”). Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year and I can't wait to indulge in everything that fall has to offer!
Also, September is my birthday month! I will be turning the big 6-0! What? Wasn't I just in high school yesterday? Well, my high school days are long gone and throughout my 59 years, I have experienced many ups and downs, mistakes and lessons learned, good and bad decisions, good times, fun times, sad times, hard times and everything in-between and truthfully, I wouldn't change anything that has happened throughout my life because everything that has happened up to this point, has made me into the person I am today, more confident, self reliant, sophisticated and definitely wiser! May the next 60 years bring me more life lessons, good times and most of all good health!  
That's all I have for you this week! I hope you all have a fun and safe Labor Day weekend and a productive week ahead, and now it's time to move on to this week's newsletter…

Pineapple Sunshine Cake
This is a light and fluffy pineapple-infused cake, topped with a sweet and creamy whipped cream frosting. This cake is a sweet and delicious summer dessert (or any time of the year), and this cake is always a crowd pleaser (like at a Labor Day get together). Here’s how to make it…
Prep Time: 5 mins Cook Time: 30 mins Total Time: 35 mins Servings: 16 servings Calories: 244 per serving.
Ingredients for the Cake:
  • 1 Box Yellow Cake Mix
  • 4 Eggs
  • ½ Cup Oil (I used ½ cup of unsweetened applesauce. Does the same thing as oil)
  • 1 8 oz. Can Crushed Pineapple With Juice (do not drain)
Ingredients for the Frosting:
  • 1 8 oz. Container Whipped Topping, Thawed
  • 1 Small Box Instant Vanilla Pudding
  • 1 8 oz. Can Crushed Pineapple With Juice (do not drain)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, oil, and 1 can of crushed pineapple with the juice. Mix well.
  3. Pour into prepared baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. In a medium sized bowl, fold together whipped topping, box of vanilla pudding, and 1 can crushed pineapple with the juice. Spread over the top of cooled cake and enjoy! (Store leftover cake in the refrigerator)
NOTE: *This Is Optional* Reserve a small amount of pineapple from the can used for the frosting to sprinkle on top of the cake before serving.

Hi Friends!!
Happy September! The end of the week is here and the start of the 3 day holiday weekend is just a few hours away! I can't believe how fast August zipped by! Soon the hot weather will be out of here and be replaced with the cooler days of fall! That means longer walks, trips to the dog park and taking naps on the patio! I can't wait!!
In other news, we had a couple of hot days this week, but the 90's are coming next week which is okay, still hot, but not as hot as the summer was! Also, we haven't seen “Attack Cat” lately which is okay with me, but I am sure once it cools down, we will see the cat more often outside searching for his next victim to attack, which I hope will not be me! That cat can be unpredictable! (Like most cats are!).
That's all that I have for you this week! I hope you all have a fun and safe Labor Day weekend and I will bark with all of you next week and remember, ADOPT, DON'T SHOP!
