Complete Your Cookie Season With Build-A-Bear *Giveaway*

       When I signed my daughter up for Girl Scouts this year I never in a million years imagined that I would not only be the new troop leader, but also the cookie chair. Needless to say with cookie season half way over I have lost my mind! Recently I was given the chance to review an adorable addition to our cookie season and with the smile on my daughters face I have found the love to continue on. We have always been really big fans of Build A Bear and make an annual trip (6 hours away) so that the kids can build a new friend. We always find a new friend to bring home but being a blogger gives me a little heads up on the new and adorable friends my kiddos will have to choose from.
Allison's new friend(I took her shoes off so you can see her
adorable feet!)
   The Coconut Caramel Bear is this years new addition to the Girl Scout family from Build-A-Bear.  If you have ever had a Girl Scout cookie you probably know this is one of the all time Favorite cookies, so having a furry friend to share them with only seems natural right??  Satisfy your favorite cookie lover’s sweet tooth with the Girl Scouts® Coconut Caramel Bear ($16) and Girl Scouts Thin Mints® Bear ($16) dressed and ready to earn her badges in a Girl Scouts Stripe Skirt Outfit ($13.50, 2 piece) or Girl Scout Hoodie & Skirt Outfit ($13.50, 2 piece) and White Sparkle Tennis Shoes ($7.50).

       This bear came by mail in her own little  home, complete with her "Birth Certificate." I love this because it really make the child feel like this is not just a stuffed animal but a new friend that needs their "care." She is very well made and has the perfect amount of stuffing to keep her loveable and stuffy.

       There are so many adorable bears to chose from and you can add a Girl Scout outfit to any of them! To see the complete line of Girl Scout outfits and bears you can look HERE. My daughter says now we are going to have to get her a Daisy outfit, "which of course mom is only logical since she is a Daisy" :0). These would not only make a great gift for your child but we are planning on giving them as a great end of the year gift to our girls for our their hard work in sales this year!

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 …
