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)

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
