Eco Vessel Giveaway

It is great to strive and become more eco-friendly. However, in some areas it can a little hard. One of my struggles has been finding a reusable water bottle that keeps my drinks iced and cold for longer than 1 hour at a time. So many of them just do not keep my drinks cold. When I find one that works, well, I cannot help but tell everyone about and let me tell ya...Eco Vessel rocks!
I was sent a Summit Insulated Stainless Steel Straw Bottle (17 oz.). "The Eco Vessel Insulated Straw Bottle is the perfect bottle for those of you constantly on the go. Like our other bottles, this Eco Vessel will keep your beverages cold for hours. The new straw top makes drinking easier so you can drink from the bottle without unscrewing the cap or tipping the bottle back. And, because of its specially designed handle, the straw won't open accidentally in your car, lunchbox, or bag. The detachable silicone straw makes cleaning the bottle easier, too. As always, our Eco Vessel Insulated Straw bottle is made from the highest quality, premium grade #304 Stainless Steel, are 100% recyclable, and of course, BPA Free. Rest assured knowing that your bottle was crafted safety, ease of use, and convenience in mind.
  • Insulated to maintain cold for hours
  • Made from #304, 18/8 Food Grade stainless steel
  • Straw top for easy sipping
  • Removable straw top for easy cleaning
  • One-piece top includes a strong carrying loop
  • Slim design is easy to hold while you run or workout
  • 100% Recyclable, BPA Free
  • Bottle Dimensions: 3 inches wide at base, 9.5 inches tall"
Really it does matter what the website states..it matters how it works in real life. I personally feel the Eco Vessel performs better than the website suggests. I have mentioned many times that my husband is a Postal Carrier. He asked to try the Eco Vessel out knowing that it would be put to a grueling test. I happily obliged! First, I removed the cap (which, by the way goes on and off super easy) Then I filled it about halfway with ice. Then topped the entire bottle off with cold green tea (actually green sun tea..keeping it eco-friendly). And I sent him off to work. The Eco Vessel spent the next 10 hours bouncing around inside a USPS van. It was 100+ outside. When it is that hot he drinks water all day and saves his tea for the ride home. He said he was so hot and tired when he finished his routes and he was not real excited about drinking what he assumed would be lukewarm tea. He was floored to find it was still icy AND cold! He polished it off and when he came home I still had to dump leftover ice into the sink. Bottom line: You cannot possibly go wrong by investing in an Eco Vessel Summit Insulated Water Bottle. Mudpies and Tiaras gives it two thumbs way up! Disclosure: The product(s) offered for the giveaway are free of charge, no purchase necessary.

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

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 …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
