Life's Little Phases

You have probably noticed that lately there have not been a lot of personal posts. So sorry about that and I promise it will be coming back real soon :O) I've entered a new phase in my life lately, as my blog progresses I seem to be becoming the person I use to be. I never really talk about it but until 7 years ago I was in an extremely abusive relationship...or a relationshit as my now husband calls them.lol I always thought I was a strong woman but recently I have realized how far down I had really gotten. I have been spending a lot of time going through my house. A house that well...lets just face it was in complete disarray! the last two weeks while I am blessed to have all these back to school giveaways going on I have been focusing on my life and getting it in order. Now I will admit with hanging head that in two weeks I have thrown away over 20 bags of trash out of my house and made almost $500 in garage sale profits with another big one coming this Friday. as I sit here typing all I can think is wow how is my house still trashed! My eyes seem to have been closed for so long. I have denied what is happening before my own eye.  Every day my life is getting more clear....in every way and I am so excited about the future. I have so much to bring you guys with so much joy. This blog has given me the confidence to know that I am someone worth being more! Thanks :O)

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 …

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

Recently I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review The Children's Place. With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering.
