It All Starts With A Dream

As today we look back on the celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. today it is amazing to me to see the changes that Americans have made, all because of the dream of one man. While I'm sure this dream was held by many people he was certainly one of the most outspoken advocates of tolerance and equal rights. There is no measure to the amount he could have accomplished had he been given the opportunity to fulfill his dreams, the changes he brought about were really immeasurable. I think the most important thing to remember about King was his non-violent outlook in handling things. A lot can be learned from Martin Luther King Jr. like it does not matter what size your dream is what matters is you have one. Here are some of my favorite quotes by Martin Luther King Jr.


"I submit to you that if a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live."


"Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend."

"Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal."

"The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important."



As you go about your day today think of all the changes that Martin Luther King Jr. brought to this great country in only a short life time. Anyone can bring about change all it takes is the desire to do so.

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 :)

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
