The Three Day Test Review and Giveaway!

With the Holidays fast approaching I can't help but think about the way that material possessions have all but over taken the lives of everyone. The movie The Three Day Test came in the mail I was excited to have a new family friendly holiday movie to share with my family.
When I first turned it on I was unsure how I would like it. Described and a faith-filled comedy I was hoping it was actually funny. Actor  plays a father and accountant who is slowly losing everything, his clients, family and everything it cares about. He decides to leave the world as we know it for three days, cutting all ties to the outside. His family thinks he is NUTS but agrees to go along with his crazy plan! Me and my family really enjoyed watching this movie it brought to light a lot of struggles that my family and I share in common with the family in the movie. Learning to be a family is one of those things that doesn't just happen. It has to be taught and how can you learn if you are shut off to the world.

The makers of Bil Jac Treats have sponsored this post. Unfortunately I was unable to review their new products but we are a life long user of their original treats, which were used to help train the dogs on the set of The Three Day Test.

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 …
