We’ve got a lot to celebrate around here plus an Easy No Bake Pie Recipe!

June is packed full of good dates to remember. At our place, June is a monumental month for Trevor. First, we have Father’s Day, then it’s Phillips Tile & Stone’s birthday then we celebrate Trevor’s birthday! This month was spent celebrating the man who steers this ship. Thank you to all our past and present clients, and a shout out to all the future clients we’ve yet to work with. Happy birthday Phillips Tile & Stone and Happy birthday to our favorite, Trevor Phillips!!

Life by Chocolate!

To celebrate, I made this easy no bake pie. In which I’m calling Life by Chocolate

It’s the easiest pie you’ll ever make and everyone loves it!


  • 1 ready-to-use Oreo pie crust
  • 1 large box chocolate instant pudding
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 package Oreo cookies
  • 1 tub of Cool Whip
  • Hot Fudge
  • additional Oreo cookies for garnish


  • Combine the large box of pudding mix and 3 cups whole milk. Stir together with a whisk until it is combined and thick. This will take about 5 minutes to thicken up.
  • Add the chopped Oreo cookies and stir together to combine.
  • Pour 1 1/2 cups of the pudding mixture into the bottom of the pie crust.
  • Drizzle with hot fudge.
  • Beat together the cool whip with the remaining pudding mixture and add this as a third layer to the pie.
  • Spread the remaining whipped cream on top.
  • Cover with the enclosed lid and let refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Refrigerating overnight is best.
  • When ready to serve, garnish the top with additional Oreo cookies and hot fudge.
  • Enjoy!

You are in for a real treat!

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is coming soon (June 16th) and maybe you have a hard to shop for dad in your life. My hope is that I can give people a few stores to turn to that have been successful for us in finding manly gifts.

  1. Duluth Trading Company. This is a nation wide store but it’s also located on 78th & Dodge Street here in Omaha. Every time I walk in there, I find something unique. It’s a sure place to find a great gift.
  2. Play It Again Sports. This one is pretty self explanatory. Need a glove for company softball games? Need a tennis racket for the gym? They’ve got you covered.
  3. Courtyard Ink. Give a personalized gift to dad! A hat, a bag, a t shirt or hoodie. These guys are a local company and they make quality pieces. Look them up and say Phillips Tile & Stone recommended them!
  4. Fareway Meat Market. This one is easy. The gift of MEAT. Get some nice cuts of steak and grill!
  5. Home Depot. If nothing else fits your fancy. A gift card to Home Depot will always be welcomed and appreciated.

Hope this helps has you shop for and celebrate Dad!
