Thankful Thursday

It has been a couple of weeks since I have written a thankful Thursday post and let me tell you some days it was tough to find something to be thankful for. My cat had a blood clot in his back. then my dog had to have a tumor removed. Then this week my puppy (Sparky the one my husband brought home) got parvo. Whether it is the lack of sleep that is giving me the time inside my head to think of things to be thankful for or the great support I have in my life I am ready.lol

I am so thankful that all 3 of my pets are still with me. I have talked many times how important my pets are in our lives. I have shed more tears(and money) in the last month then in the last 7 years. Through it all though I have been blessed that with the help of the vet and my knowledge they are now all  healing.

I'm thankful for my job. I can't say enough what a challenge some days are.lol That isn't even the word for it. However there are so many times that I can just stop and look around. Someone will smile and run to me with a hug, the simple joy of a child's endless love is something I never get tired of. Plus so many Americans don't have a job! So that is a blessing in itself.

I'm so so thankful for all the love and support I have with my family, friends, and fans. This blog and my sanity would not be possible without all of you. :O)

Awe poor Furbabies, glad they are all on the mend, absolutely something to be thankful for. Sometimes it is good to step back and be thankful, I always say, no matter how bad we have it..someone has it even worse! It's hard to remember sometimes when everything crashes in at once! Glad your back to the up side! :)

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 …

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! Butterfly Shirt $6; Matching Shorts $6;Flip Flops to go with her out fit $3.50. The excitement of picking her outfit herself Priceless.
She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the 5 pairs she…

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway

Recently I was given an amazing opportunity to review a new product by Rubbermaid called the Hidden Recycler. As a family who does a lot to help our planet in many ways this was an exciting opportunity. I loved the fact the Rubbermaid not only made a product that would help my family continue their recycling more easily but they reduced packaging to merely a cardboard sleeve that I could in turn recycle. I quickly opened the package like a kid at Christmas and discovered it would not fit my kitchen cabinets :O( we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and the layout of my old cabinets would not hold the brackets.  So as I sat down to gloat about not being able to use this amazing product, and I notice two holes on the lid and made a massive dash for the directions. Sure enough I can attach it with screws! (Which ironically took me forever to find in our construction materials) I found the perfect place for it in my laundry room and began putting all of Rubbermaid's claims to the …
