Baby Shower Celebration- My Day Registry!

I am thrilled to be joining in with Tots and Me to bring her last Baby Shower Celebration Giveaway. The following review was written by Tots and Me.
Tots and Me
I was so looking forward to registering my special occasion and owning my very own day. It would have been cool to have gotten the day registered for baby Harold, after all this is a celebration for him. However, with 10 older children we didn't want any jealousy. So we opted for registering a very special day in our lives, our wedding day. It's a very simple process. You go to the My Day Registry site and enter your date to see if it is available. The next screen will appear, showing you which registries your date is available in. You then choose state, country or worldwide. You then enter your special event (this is where I put "Harold and Karen's Wedding Day").  You can then choose from 3 frames (or choose no frame and save $10). Lastly you fill in some account information and shipping information. And then you wait patiently for your certificate to arrive announcing you (or someone special) as the proud owner of a day in history. 
While you wait for your certificate you can take the time to personalize your online profile. 
Again, a simple process. This page has the date registered, who owns it, who purchased it and why the day is important. You also get to upload several pictures for a slideshow and a video. My pictures uploaded with no problem, though I do wish we could load more pictures (what can a say, I am picture obsessed).  Unfortunately the video I would like to upload was too tricky for me to do. That is because I am pathetic when it comes to computers, not the fault of the sight. All you need to do is upload the video from YouTube.  Problem is, my video is still on the DVD, it is the slide show set to our song that we shared during our wedding ceremony. That's okay, I'll get it eventually. 
Now, back to the certificate. It arrived promptly and in perfect condition, as it was very carefully packaged. After opening it, the first thing hubby noticed was that it was a quality frame. We chose the Black Step Frame. Hubby seemed very happy with the certificate, which is very important as it represents our special day. I have to say, even though I also enjoy it, I do think it is a bit cluttered in the picture, making it hard to focus on our day. But that is just my thought, as I said, hubby is quite happy with it. 
So, we are now the proud owners of a day in history. Obviously this is a novelty item, but it is so cool to think we own a day. How would you like to own your very own day? Or, do you have someone special in your life that you would like to register a day for on their special occasion? (Graduation and father's day is coming up. I think 1st Father's Day would be a sweet occasion to register.)  My Day Registry is allowing me to give away, not 1, but 4 days. Two winners will receive framed certificates in their choice of registry.
Two other winners will receive unframed certificates in their choice of registry.
This giveaway is open worldwide. However, international winners will automatically receive an unframed certificate. 
The giveaway runs from 12:01am May 28th - 11:59pm May 9th.
I know I do not usually have so many entries on my Rafflecopter forms. However, these wonderful ladies are helping to share my Baby Shower Celebration and I offered them a spot or two on said form. Remember, you don't have to fill in every entry (there are only 2 mandatory entries) but each entry you complete increases your chances for winning and I would love for you to follow these great ladies who are helping me. 
Disclosure: I was able to register a day in the United States registry from mydayregistry.com and receive a beautiful framed certificate for free as a part of my Baby Shower Celebration. This did not in any way influence my review. I only recommend products I use personally and will be good for my readers.

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 :)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
