Stanley's Thanksgiving Adventure!


As you know stanley has been traveling all over America meeting new people and seeing new places. He couldn't have picked a better place to spend Thanksgiving then with a friend and fellow blogger Melanie from My Side of Life. He got to do some many fun things with her and her family. He played in her garden and helped to pick some amazing vegetables fresh for their Thanksgiving meal. He had never seen such a beautiful garden filled with fresh greens, peas and tomatoes. There was even a section of wildflowers that he just couldn't pass up playing in.Then of course it was on to the fun part, BAKING! I don't think Stanley loves anything more then getting into the kitchen and making an amazing dish. Who better to do it with the Melanie :O) First they created an amazing pie crust, but Stanley got stuck in the flour. It was actually kind of fun he had never just played in flour before. He was so tired by the time they were done he thought for sure a nap was in order. Luckily Melanie reminded him the pie crust is not the best choice for a bed.....well if a nap was out of the question a pick me up of chocolate chips was certainly a good idea. Then on to side dishes it was, and the Broccoli Rice casserole they were going to make would work just perfect. Finally all the meal preparation for thanksgiving was done it was on to the real work. Melanie had a blog post she needed some help on. Boy was this a great trip, so long and full of excitement. Thank you My Side of Life For welcoming Stanley in for Thanksgiving :O) he had so much fun and can't wait for his next trip :O) Colorado it is.

30 Day Beach Body Challenge- Day 3 #30dayfitness

Here we are at day 3, now unfortunately I am to sick to work out today but I wanted to make sure that I shared the information with you on how to do these exercises so that everyone could easily get their's done. I will catch up as I can, may even try to add extra to the days once I feel better. For today it is 50 burpees and 50 kick down crunches. If you don't know how to do these make sure to scroll down for directions! You will also see why with the flu these aren't doable.lol HOW TO DO A BURPEE!

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
