As you know there are four kids in my family–the youngest of which is my “baby” sister Hannah. Even though she’s 8 years younger than I am, as fate would have it both she and my hubby are starting their Junior year of college this year–they’re planning on graduating in Spring 2016. It sounds like this year is going to be a CRAZY one for both of them, as well! She’s over at Bob Jones University in South Carolina, so she’s far away from us here in Texas, and also the rest of my family who are all still in Wyoming. Because of that having a great way to keep in communication with all the rest of us is super important for her!

The next time you see a special event taking place in or around DC on the TV I want you to stop a moment. I want you to look past the President, Commander, or foreign dignitary and take a few moments to look at the rows of men and women in the background. See them there? The ones standing straight at attention, with meticulously pressed uniforms, clean shaven faces, and dignified looks on their faces? Those, my friends, are the men and women of this country’s Honor Guards.

Lately I’ve becoming somewhat obsessed with DIY Sugar Scrubs! In fact, I have an entire pinboard dedicated to them called Scrub-a-Dub Dub after making several of them I realized that they are super easy and inexpensive to make–if you use the “secret ingredient” many of the recipes call for. I’ll give you a hint–it’s one of the many uses of dish soap!

Crafters Crate — Perfect For Busy Moms of Girls!

A common theme these days is just how busy I am–it’s great, but makes fitting everything in that I would like to more than a little challenging. I always have these grand ideas of these super fun projects, crafts, and ideas to do with the kids–but somehow the summer has flown past and we’ve only been able to accomplish a handful of them!

Enjoy Outside Again!

One of our families favorite things to do is to enjoy the wonderful world know to the kid as “outside”. Although in Texas in the summer months getting to enjoy the “great outside” is a bit hit or miss unless some form of water is involved, as I mentioned hubby recently surprised me with a trip home and the weather in Wyoming was just absolutely perfect! Low 80s, bright and sunny, and even (gasp!) no wind!

Can you believe that it’s mid August already?! Here in Texas summer is just really kicking off with the temperatures climbing up-up-up and they’ll continue that way until October! With the mix-mash between scramble and lazy that only the last few weeks before school and regular routine once more brings; these days I’ve been relying on my favorite makeup tips, tricks, and products for a look that’s as fun and effortless as sleeping in late after staying up till the wee hours of the morning watching Sherlock Season 3 on Netflix (which I may or may not have just done…..favorite tv show ever!!)
