Dog Trots Globe Book Review & Giveaway

I am not really much of a reader so I try to keep my book reviews to topics I truly enjoy. When I came across the opportunity to review this book I knew it was for me. Dog Trots Globe- To Paris & Provence by Sheron Long is the journey of an adorable Shetland Sheepdog to France. I have never talked about my childhood but growing up I had always had a sheltie, and my mother still has several. Growing up a military brat we also got to travel the globe. Of course as a child I never thought about the world through my dogs eyes, so every page of this book brought a smile to my face as I thought back to my beloved childhood friend and what he must have thought on all of our trips and moves. This book was really well written and you can almost feel like you understand what the dog must have had going on in his mind. The pictures are also very vivid and fun, they help to set the scene and of course show us the cute doggy the whole time. I couldn't find a picture of my childhood friend that would scan well, but here is a picture of another one of my four legged friends. His name is sunny and has seen more journeys then I will ever know. I found him about 8 years ago running down the street. He was so poorly cared for and had been out so long he had to be shaved. His biggest journey now is going outback to the potty.lol If you love dogs and are looking for a fun book for the whole family I highly recommend this book to you.

Here we are at day 3, now unfortunately I am to sick to work out today but I wanted to make sure that I shared the information with you on how to do these exercises so that everyone could easily get their's done. I will catch up as I can, may even try to add extra to the days once I feel better. For today it is 50 burpees and 50 kick down crunches. If you don't know how to do these make sure to scroll down for directions! You will also see why with the flu these aren't doable.lol HOW TO DO A BURPEE!

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 :)
