Find The Greatest Gifts For Mom This Mother's Day At Best Buy

As a mother of three I don't always get to do things for myself, so when Mother's Day starts getting closer I start looking at what mom wants for a change ;). I love spending time in the kitchen so I usually flock straight to the cooking section. For Christmas I got the Nutribullet from Best Buy and LOVE it! I have actually replaced my blender and food processor with it. I sat here looking at what I wanted and found myself having a hard time deciding.lol
My family goes through a lot of yogurt, which I can't complain about it is super healthy for you, so I thought...why not get the Dash 2 quart Greek Yogurt Maker? With a 4.5 star rating and being dishwasher safe I could not only know I am feeding my family a healthy, homemade food, but it would require very little effort and who doesn't love that.
As I began looking I became more and more torn though....lol.....I saw something that I won't lie I have been wanting for YEARS and for some reason I have never received …

doTerra Lifelong Vitality Pack day 10 update

I've been so busy I haven't had the time to get back to everyone on my progress with taking the doTerra Lifelong Vitality Pack.
      Now I won't lie I have had problems with so many things for so long and I have tried so many things I didn't go into this supplement with much hope. Within 2 days I did notice it was obviously changing my body in some way. I started my monthly cycle 2 weeks early(yay me) and I was feeling better. But every day what changed the most was my skin. Every day more and more I began to notice my skin healing. I know what you are thinking....ummmm yeah skin does that.....well not mine. As you can see in the top left my hands were cut, nasty and bleeding. They have always done this, if I hit them on something they would bust open causing very painful cuts on the side of most of my fingers. The bottom left picture in my hand in the same light, same time of day on day 10!  I have also STOPPED USING LOTION!

Happy Jelly Bean Day! Why Not Celebrate With A Popsicle.....

No don't worry I haven't lost my mind. Every year I get the opportunity to discover more and more fun days, and today just happens to be National Jelly Bean Day. No one seems to know just where the Jelly Bean first came from but jelly beans earned fame as president Ronald Reagan’s favorite treat (he started munching on them to help him stop smoking his pipe). Jelly Belly, maker of the famous gourmet jelly beans, created the Blueberry Jelly Belly just for the president, he even said before “We can hardly start a meeting or make a decision without passing around the jar of jelly beans.” 
     Popsicle and Jelly Belly have released new Popsicle Jelly Belly pops this month, and it is just in time for this tasty holiday. The new treats combine the iconic frozen treats that parents remember and kids love, with Jelly Belly’s famous jelly beans. Popsicle Jelly Belly pops have a unique chewy center and come in a variety of fun flavors like Blueberry, Very Cherry and Tutti…

April Shower Bring May Flowers-Crafting While Learning

We all remember the saying "April Showers Bring May Flowers" and while here in West Texas it doesn't rain much in April I thought this craft would be a cute, fun thing for my kids to do. So while we were learning about bugs and the outdoors I thought it would be great to learn how the rain can help to grow flowers and how the flowers could help the bugs. This was such a fun cute craft. I loved that is was super easy to put together so that even my 5-7 year old Girl Scouts could assemble them without having to have one on one help. The foam pieces are easy to stink together and with a little pressure stay well, but luckily that is something small kids have way to much fun doing.lol

     I love Oriental Trading's craft projects for so many reasons. They always come with great step by step directions, extra pieces(because lets face it when you are working with little kids sometimes they get lost), and many of the craft projects there are no extra supplies requir…
