#HeartsforHeartsGirls Doll Party

What an exciting morning we have had here in West Texas. this morning we got to have our Hearts for Hearts Girls party at our local park. I was selected to be a host of MommyParties sponsored by Hearts for Hearts Girls last month and my daughter and her friends have been so excited for this day to come. We made blueberry muffins this morning and picked up some juice. I was given a great list of recipes but unfortunately they were all for afternoon meals. To beat the heat we had a our party nice and early and met at 9am. The girls played and talked about the dolls. Hearts for hearts Girls are an amazing product. Not only are all the dolls different and dressed as they would dress in their culture, but they partner with WorldVision and a portion of every sale goes to help the cause and making life a little better for a child.
We are ready and waiting :O)
After about 2 hours we drew for the lucky winner of Lillian :O)
The winner and my daughter ended up trading dolls.lol
All the girls had some much fun and no one was left out. All the girls went home with some adorable hearts for heart bracelets. It was a perfect start to a weekend and even the boys had fun.lol 

**I was provided the above mentioned products in order to host this party. Thank you MomSelect and Heart for Heart Girls**

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

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 :)

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 …
