It's Time To Live Life

       I sit here thinking how amazing life is, not always good or fun, but amazing. Growing up I swore I'd never get married, never have children...I had this huge life planned out. I knew what I wanted to be, where I wanted to be and who I cared to have in my life. I can't say for a moment I've ever regretted having my children despite doing nearly everything to prevent having children lmao but other plans were drawn for my life, ones that still some days I don't understand. I get asked if I feel like I've done nothing with my life because I've spent most of 12 years as a stay at home mother.....ironically I don't feel anything more then amazement. Many people don't get the blessing to watch every single moment in their children's lives, I've missed nothing, lack nothing, and desire little. I know that every time someone says how amazing they are it is because of me, and yes that goes for every time they drive me nuts to. I may not have gotten to be everything I had seen myself being, but I know that my children are going to be everything they ever dream of and its going to be amazing! Living life with no regrets doesn't always mean avoiding what you think you'll regret.
       The last week was possibly the worst week of my life. From the lose of some amazing kittens who have left a mark on my heart forever, to questioning myself and everything I am, was, or will be. I've sat in what can only be described as a deep depression for the last week. Unsure of why things have had to happen the way they did, and even where I am headed next. It has been extremely hard not to question my faith, friends, and family. I can't say that things are 100% better but I knew one thing. I really needed to get on again and let out my life. I love blogging, and sometimes there is discussion about not making an income off of it. I have to remind myself and those around me that isn't why I blog. I blog to help people relate and feel like they are not always alone in whatever journey they may be taking at the time. I've made many friends through the blogging world that have made a huge impact on my life, and it is time that I get back to that life and stop cutting everyone out.

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 …
