Talk About It Tuesday

We have all seen and heard about the tragedy of Sandy Hook. Nothing will ever explain why a human would take the lives of children. How are you feeling about this tragedy?? Have the schools in your area done anything different since this tragedy?? What do you wish would be done in your area to keep people safe??

Comments

That is a heavy topic and to be honest I have tried several times to write about it and have yet to be able to see clearly enough to know what is coming out. I do not know what our schools are doing, my youngest is too young yet and my oldest is in high school which is not secure enough for me (sorry I am a mom and complete lock down with guards would be nice, just not possible). Unfortunately, there is not much you can do about preventing these things if you want to live and try to enjoy life. The only chance you have is when someone that knows the person recognizes signs that something is not okay and steps up to do something. It was such a horrible tragedy and I am still praying for the families that are suffering because of it.

30 Day Beach Body Challenge- Day 3 #30dayfitness

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 :)
