Okay I know that was a little nerdy. What could be more fitting though really for this post. Recently my family was given the chance to review a Darth Maul costume from Wholesalestarwarscostumes.com, so we are stuck in Star Wars mode around here. Then again when aren't we, The Clone Wars is one of my sons favorite shows to watch. When we received the costume of course first came the fighting over who was going to wear it.lol So after checking ten times who it fit better my oldest son finally won. I was amazed by the quality of the costume. The material was thick and well put together, unlike so many costumes I have bought before and all for under $30! The kids have had HOURS of fun with this costume and can't wait to use it for Halloween. My middle child has already picked out which character he wants to be and we are all ready to order his. If you are looking for great costumes from Star Wars I recommend this site for you :O) they have everything from adult sizes and even that special costume for your pet!
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
