Simply Saturday-Whew it was a long one!

       Wow what a long but great day. We have slowly been getting things cleaned up and packed up around here. Putting things in boxes for the rv, storage or to sell has been a slow process. It is so hard to know what you might need and it can be really hard to get rid of the things you know you don't need. Over the years though I think we have become attached to these objects and I am really starting to hate that. I know this life is unhealthy so one by one some of these things make their way into the sell section and I am feeling more at peace. Letting go of these objects has really helped me to see who I am, a person I feel I haven't seen in a long time. We were going to sleep in the camper tonight but our house cannot support the rv long enough to cool it off using the air conditioner :( another downside to this house. We did sit and play games a while and we are going to go out in the morning and we are going to finish that game and prepare the rv just a bit more. Sunday will be about cleaning the pop-up our first love and listing so large items on Craigslist. We have come so much further in the last month then I thought we ever could. While many details of the life we want are set in stone we still constantly have a mental battle about others. I hope we are shown the way that we should go and the things that we should do. Life may not be perfect but it is perfect for us.

Everyone gets attached to things, especially when they trigger memories. My husband is a pack rat and likes to keep everything. I on the other hand will see that it has not been used in a while, I then hide it away and if it is not touched or asked for in a 6 month period, it goes away. Good luck!

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.

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 …
