Finding Time To Breath, Our Imagination Staycation #popsecret

http://ooh.li/39ec9c4

   It's no secret that the last 2 months life has become nothing short of insane. We went from a one income household, to a two income, insane shuffling, craziness condo lol. Without the cool condo to live in. Last week I was given an opportunity to take time out of my life and do something that was probably long, long over do!


       Now growing up as a kid popcorn and fort build were kind of how we spent our weekends. We would gather the chairs from all over the house, throw in a couple blankets and watch movies. Now my sister and I were never best friends as kids :p but it was a time that I think my mom must have loved most, when we would come together and laugh.
     Here in West Texas we have had a whirlwind winter already. Personally I think Mother Nature has probably lost her mind! With 5 inches of snow falling we headed outside for snowmen and snow angels! Then I thought what could be a more perfect way to warm up then to pull out the blankets, chairs, tables, and popcorn and have some good old fashion family fun! It seems like with the busy life that our family is trying to grow into helping my children use their imaginations has sadly got pushed to the back burner. With my oldest being 12 I often don't know how much more mommy driving him crazy he can take, but you throw in just a little PopSecret Caramel microwaveable popcorn and it is an instant love event here :) Although I have to say my daughter is a little more photogenic 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 li

#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.

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
