Arizona Kidz Tea Supporting Smiles of Children Worldwide

       There is nothing I love more then to work with companies that care about others. In 2009 Arizona introduced a line they call Arizona Kidz which come in a variety of flavors from their best selling Lemon Iced Tea to their Half & Half which is a tea that is half lemonade (and my daughters personal favorite). The Arizona company decided that they wanted to do more then just make teas, they wanted to make a difference. Not just in the lives of the people locally but for children all over the world. They took their best selling Lemon Iced Tea and made a pledge, for every 6 pack of Arizona Kidz Lemon Iced Tea that sold they would donate 5% of their Net Sales to  non-profit organization called Operation Smile. Operation smile is a company that has helped children all over the world by treating more then 130,000 children born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities in more then 51 countries.
I have been drinking Arizona Teas as long as I can remember. It is something that I have always really enjoyed and was so glad to see that they made a fun kids bottle now :) my kids love the taste and I love that they aren't loaded with to much sugar. With a suggested retail value of $2.99 for a 6 pack they are only 50 cents a piece which is very reasonable. In addition at only 60 calories per serving it won't break the calories through the roof! It also contains 100% of your daily suggested Vitamin C and Arizona Tea encourages their consumers to recycle when they are done enjoying :)
       What I didn't know was how many other great product Arizona offers! We received the great backpack which my daughter has just fallen in love with. But it isn't just back packs, they sell everything from pens to bags, hats and more. During their Back to School promotion you can get a free pen with every order. The backpack is very heavy duty. I was actually shocked it was better made then any of the backpacks we had purchased this year from our local stores.

       We have really had a great time with this review and I with this review, I loved not only the products but learning about another company that helps others. You can learn more at Drinkarizona.com , you can also check them out on Facebook and Twitter(@DrinkArizona).

*I received the above mentioned products in order to help facilitate this review. Regardless all views expressed are those of my own and were in no way influenced**

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

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 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 …
