Thankful Thursday

So as I laid in bed last night crying and not being able to sleep I watched a preview of a new show called Go On. I was quickly reminded that the things I was crying over are not that bad. Somewhere in the world someone has it worse then me, someone is going through something more trying then me. I've been a stay at home mom for pretty much all of 10 years, it has been such a blessing I have never missed a moment in my children's lives. On the 15th I will start a new journey as a working mom. I have been so excited about this new journey in life. All my kids will be in school this year and won't need me home.......or will they. I just realized last night that being a working mom means missing field trips, awards, and parties. :*( I couldn't stop crying for about an hour as friends talked me Then I realized that it really isn't that bad. Some where last night a mother was longing for her children, crying to just get to hug them. So I have decided that from now on I will take Thursdays to remember what I am thankful for. 

I'm thankful that my husband and I both have jobs! 

I'm thankful to have a healthy family!

I'm thankful for a supportive family and amazing friends! 

 I'm thankful that I have a roof over my head! 

What are you thankful for today??

I can't wait to see how this change is going to effect my favorite little family for the best. Y'all are going to be great; your kids have amazing heads on their shoulders.
I'm thankful for family and friends who support what I believe in, who love me and my children. I am thankful for the children I will be watching (mine, yours, and my niece!). And very thankful for the blogposts that they're going to help me write with the funny things I know they're going to say and do. :)

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

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 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 After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
