Why Not Back Pack Giveaway

  I'm so glad to have the chance to once again team up with Mud Pies and Tiaras to offer my readers some great giveaways! The next couple of days will be pack with so many great back to school giveaways ENJOY!


What says "Back To School" more than a new backpack?? I know this is a highlight for my boys. They love picking out the perfect new backpack to fill with all their school supplies for the first day. I recently found a great site called WhyNotBackpacks.com. They offer a great selection of messenger bags and backpacks for kids, from elementary to high school. Not only do the bags come in really neat designs, but they're also high quality. I let me nine-year-old pick out a backpack to review.
He chose the Blue Flames backpack. He was so excited! He thought the design was really "cool". I was impressed with the quality. The backpack is a great size. It's bigger than I thought it would be and will easily carry all his supplies.
The backpack is made of sturdy 600 denier polyester fabric and feature three pockets, a cell phone holder, two mesh side pockets, padded shoulder straps, a reinforced bottom, and top strap. My son said the backpack was really comfortable and fit him well. In the past we've had backpack that were really cute but were falling apart within a few months. I have no doubt this backpack will last the whole year and beyond. Here are a few other bags I liked:

All the bags at Why Not retail for $24.99 and can be found HERE. Why Not has generously offered TWO of our lucky readers a backpack of their choice. Please note that the winners will be responsible for shipping fees of $8. a Rafflecopter giveaway

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.
