Simply Saturday-Time to Take a Breather

     Whew what a busy couple of weeks it has been. I have had the chance to review so many great products, some I have not yet had a chance to share with you. Life has been a little more then crazy around here needless to say. I am picking 2 pounds or more of tomatoes every day and the occasional zucchini. everything else is kind of dying off and getting ready for the fall. So after clearing our 40 gallons of weeds and dead plants I decided today I am going to just take it easy :).
     Our plans to get out of West Texas just seem to continually take detours, and while it is still in the plans unfortunately I think we have postponed it till June1st instead of March 1st. BooooO!! The house is coming along it is more the money aspect that will hold us back like much of America. I am doing my best to conserve energy and save money where I can. Last week I gave up my dishwasher to help get rid of the last of the bugs. It really isn't as bad as I thought it would be :) despite how crazy every tells me I am, or maybe I really am just that crazy lol.
     The kids went back to school 2 weeks ago and while times have not been perfect this year is going well so far. I really love my middle sons teacher and she seems to be giving him the care he needs to succeed. Only time will tell if this will continue or if at some point both of them will get burnt out. Till then I will continue to push forward and find a way out of West Texas. I hope everyone has a great Saturday. I am looking forward to some football today and tomorrow!
     So a couple questions for my readers :) how do you save money?? And who are you cheering on this weekend??

#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

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. Considering we hit a record high 103 degrees yesterday it came none to soon! Here is the adorable outfit that she picked out :O) she had to model it of course! 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

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
