Start the School Year off Right With Nature's Own Oatmeal Toasters

     It amazes me to think the the school year is only days away for our family. As we get back on schedule and the rush, rush, rush begins I can't help to think of fast and nutritious breakfast that I can feed my family. Recently I was given the chance to review a great new breakfast item that not only gives me something that is fast, but is also good for them. Better yet it is something that I can give my children a an on the go item. Nature's Own Oatmeal Toasters are such a neat idea to me. We have all seen traditional toasters covered in icing and filled with sugary substances, and of course our children would love those. Nature's Own has made something that is still appealing with sacrificing the great taste.

     My kids were a little leery to try these at first, of course because they looked healthy and what child just wants something healthy, they want it covered in sugar. As soon as I popped them into the toaster though their minds started to change. The house filled with the smell of oranges, it was really just beyond being able to describe how good in smelled.lol When I separated them to toast them it was really neat to see actual pieces of fruit throughout the toaster, real fruit, not a paste or a sugary slime but chunks of fruit. It really helped me feel even more comfortable that these would be a healthy option for us.
You can see the oranges and cranberries!
     First we tried them plain to see what they actually tasted like. We all really liked the taste, although my oldest was a bit put off by the orange flavor I told him not to worry they were available in Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Toasters as well. So he was really excited about that, since that is one of his favorite flavors of well......anything. We have really enjoyed trying these Oatmeal Toasters  out and I can't wait to pick up some more for the first day of school!

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 :)

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
