The Hydration Movement, Join in This School Year #Sponsored

As the summer rolls on I fall more and more back into the life of a stay at home mom. The last year I had devoted my life to helping my students so much that I think perhaps I had neglected my own family a bit. I'm not just talking about my children and husband(although they had to much of not enough), but about my mom. If you remember back a couple of months ago I talked about my mother and her impact on my life. If you didn't get to read it you can HERE. Recently I have been able to do something I missed more then probably anything in the world, I got to talk to my mom. Sure I always had her there, I would make a noisy after school call as the children tried to relax for the day by fighting like mad! Actually being able to have a conversation for the first time in a year with my mom has really taught me so much now as an adult.

Of course a big topic has always been health, I think we kind of keep each other in check. Those little things that have been passed down from one generation the the next. "I'm hungry mom" I'm sure we have all heard that from our children, or maybe you are the one saying how hungry you are! One thing my mom always tells me is "Have a glass of water, you are probably just thirsty." Did you know that the human body can pass the feeling of dehydration off as hunger? It's true I promise you :) ask the mighty Google Gods, or Bing if you don't believe me. Another thing she always said was to drink two cups of water when I first wake up. I mean if you think about it, it makes perfect sense. You are suppose to consume 8 glasses of water a day. Sure we have those in the 16 hours we are awake, but then your body goes 8 hours with nothing to fuel it, nothing to hydrate it.
Water is important for so many functions in the body, the most important function is your brain. Your brain controls every function within your body, so keeping it well fueled is very important. With school starting again it is important to realize the effect that dehydration can have on our kids. Did you know that up to 64% of children leave for school each morning without the proper hydration? Yet we expect them to learn. So this school year join up with me and Nestlé® Pure Life® in the Hydration Movement. simply visit Nestlé® Pure Life® Purified Water Facebook page to take the Pledge to drink more water and share your own Mom’s Wisdom story. 
By taking the Pledge, you have the option to enter the Sweepstakes for a chance to win the grand prize trip for four (4) to Universal Studios Hollywood or Universal Orlando Resort, or one of the 100 first prizes of a one year’s supply of Nestlé® Pure Life® Purified Water and receive a downloadable coupon to save $1.00 on two (2) .5-Liter or 8 oz. Multi-Packs of Nestlé® Pure Life® Purified Water (15-pack or larger). 
Thanks to my mom I will always be hydrated, and hopefully pass on a little #momwisdom of my own.

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 li

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

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.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a
