Growing in Texas

Every year Texas seems to bring down it's full wrath on me! I swear it is just the beginning of April and already we are getting up to 90+ degrees. Despite the fact I have already lost 40 cucumber plants I do have a few things growing STRONG!
Ooooppppsss my picture is sideways and I forgot to turn it ;OP Beans a squash seem to like it here at least. My onions are also going GREAT! Finally a little potato plant is starting. I think really if we got some good old fashion rainy days it would do my garden wonders. Luckily tomorrow we are expecting some love from mother nature. I'm so jealous of my friend of at My Side of Life and her garden. It is coming in amazingly! Well as you may know we are out of town this weekend camping so hopefully the garden survives 2 days with no water*sigh*
Don't worry my little chickens are well equipped with an automatic feeder. It feeds them 3 times a day since I cannot while we are gone and lots of water supplied :O) can't wait to see them when I get home.

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!

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
