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

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 …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
