All I ever get told is how "they are all gay" and "none of them can sing". I'm a proud directioner and nobody else's opinion can change that.
When I was a kid
Bacon Wrapped Smokies with Brown Sugar and Butter. I guarantee if you make these, they will be gone! I made them for a gathering and everyone just kept eating them, and eating them until they are all gone. These are one of the best appetizers I’ve ever eaten in my life. So be sure to make plenty of these.
How to deter wasps~~ if you make a fake wasp nest it will keep them away because wasps are territorial and they will think the territory is occupied. All I knew is that it should be round and gray so I balled up a grocery bag and covered it with weather resistant duck tape, also I broke the hook of a coat hanger so I could hang it. It worked like a charm all summer: no wasps, no pesticides!

This is a must read! Educate your children on "tricky people" not strangers....Tell them to find a mom with kids if they are ever lost...SO SMART! (I first heard this on Safety Kids.) Common sense stuff that isn't so common any more. Take a minute to read and think about how you will have these conversations with your children.
Little Girls Style
Relient K is by far my favorite band... No matter how much I love Justin Bieber or One Direction or any other little "come and go" group, because Relient K is absolutely amazing, and I will never ever ever grow tired of their music. Not in a million years. Their songs are so profound, and the lyrics are beautiful. If you don't know who they are, you're missing out. <- Preach it, sister!
This will be the sign that I will have near the aisle so that my guests will know that they are all equally important and that they shouldn't be separated in a ceremony that is about unity.
My preschool Father's Day gift! I wrote the poem, it says: "see these gloves daddy? They don't fit me just yet, my handprints are on them so you never forget. I'm only small for a little while, So remember my hands and remember my smile. I love you daddy, with all my heart. No matter how much I grow, we will bet grow apart."
These cake-like cookies (I've now tried several versions of them) are just hands down some of my all-time favorite recipes. They are so simple to make, and yet at parties, people are blown away at how great they taste! I wouldn't call these homemade "Oreos" per say, but they have a delicious cream-cheese frosting center sandwiched by an amazing cake-textured chocolate cookie. These will become a go-to party dessert. I highly recommend these!!! (Homemade Oreos)

November - adopt a senior pet Month ! Today's the day. i JUST KNOW IT! Someone who loves old dogs will come TAKE ME HOME. Will it be YOU or GOD?

The easiest interior design idea is to add pillows. You can choose any color you like or you can even choose the theme. I like sunny tropical theme, so sandy color and palms are mine and they will be shown on my pillows.

OK so I know this is way out of the ordinary for me, but this band One Direction has tugged at my heart strings and will not let go. Yes I listen to real music, but I am making an exception. They are like if the backstreet boys had a baby with nsync and threw a little bit of the Spice Girls accents in there! How could a 90s kid not fall in love? And I check.... they are all over 18, so no creepy stuff going on! :)
Small things that work very well
Use ice trays to make your dishwasher cubes. You can find cheap ones at at your local dollar stores. If you have a Dollar Tree they have them there. They are horrible for ice making as they don't stack. But great for this, and only a dollar for 2 trays. You will need 4-8 depending how much soap you desire to make at a time. I make a double or triple batch sometimes. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE THEM FOR ICE MAKING EVER AGAIN! So don't use your
To Do List
"On Mother's Day I write a note to each of my children in my own handwriting. I write all about what they are up to and how I admire and adore them. I hope some day they will read them with their own children near and finally understand how much a mother (parent) can love.
Thats right! I freaking can do ANYTHING. All of those doubts can get lost, they are not welcome here. Instead I choose to see myself as capable and intelligent as any one else. With a world of wonderful to offer. So yes I f*CKING can. I can do anything if I just give it my best shot. If I don't I am just limiting my abilities and stunting my own growth. How sad and I obviously do not want that for myself, I obviously care about giving myself the very best and doing everything to my best!
