New Combat Ant and Roach Killing Bait Strips

DSCN5903
Here in West Texas bugs are just a fact of life, but that doesn't mean I want them in my house! We have had a pretty annoying issue with roaches since since we moved into this house. We have tried about a million things to get rid of them with no real success. As you can imagine when these new Combat Roach Killing Bait Strips came out I was pretty excited to be selected to try them. They are not toxic to my children and pets like the sprays and bombs that can be used. They are easy to use to, which was pretty nice for a change.
They came in a package of 10 which was great because then I could place them all over the house to make sure I got ever inch of the house covered. It was really simple to break them apart. Then all that needed to be done was removed the back and the front to expose the bait and stick it down and I was done! My hands never had to touch any chemicals and there was no smell put off.
I have had the Combat Roach Killing Bait Strips down for about a week now and I have noticed a reduction in roaches. I can't wait as the weeks go on to see if the roaches are actually eliminated! At this point I am more then thrilled with the lowering of numbers because it is a step in the right direction! We also received the new Ant Killing Strips from Combat, but with Mother Nature having so many mood swings they have not yet been needed.lol Stay tuned this summer for further updates!

Thanks for Sharing! Florida has ants big time! I like that they are safe for my dog:) But children are just as important. What store carries them? When a new item comes out it takes me for ever to find them and the employees longer:)

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.

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 …
