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 down.lol 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. :)

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 li

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. I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25. In fact she was not only able to get an out fit but to additional pairs of shorts! Not only was ordering fast and easy but we received our clothing in 2 days. Considering we hit a record high 103 degrees yesterday it came none to soon! Here is the adorable outfit that she picked out :O) she had to model it of course!

She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a
