all you need is Vodka, vanilla beans and about 4-6 months for steeping. I think I found my homemade Christmas Gift, but will have to do
A Child’s Ten Commandments to Parents. Reading this just makes me want to do everything to be a better Mom. 1. My hands are small; please don’t expect perfection whenever I make a bed, draw a picture, or throw a ball. My legs are short; please slow down so that I can keep up with you. 2. My eyes have not seen the world as yours have; please let me explore safely: don’t restrict me unnecessarily. 3. Housework will always be there. I’m only little such a short time—please take time to explain things to me about this wonderful world, and do so willingly. 4. My feelings are tender; please be sensitive to my needs; don’t nag me all day long. (You wouldn’t want to be nagged for your inquisitiveness.) Treat me as you would like to be treated. 5. I am a special gift from God; please treasure me as God intended you to do, holding me accountable for my actions, giving me guidelines to live by, and disciplining me in a loving manner. 6. I need your encouragement, but not your praise, to grow. Please go easy on the criticism; remember you can criticize the things I do without criticizing me. 7. Please give me the freedom to make decisions concerning myself. Permit me to fail, so that I can learn from my mistakes. Then someday I’ll be prepared to make the kind of decisions life requires of me. 8. Please don’t do things over for me. Somehow that makes me feel that my efforts didn’t quite measure up to your expectations. I know it’s hard, but please don’t try to compare me with my brother or my sister. 9. Please don’t be afraid to leave for a weekend together. Kids need vacations from parents, just as parents need vacations from kids. Besides, it’s a great way to show us kids that your marriage is very special. 10. Please take me to Sunday school and church regularly, setting a good example for me to follow. I enjoy learning more about God. I know that when the kids are driving me crazy, I can sit down and read this and feel so much better! Where was this yesterday!?!?! :) *Feel free to print off and put on your fridge for a daily reminder of how to treat your kiddos! **A Child’s Ten Commandments to Parents, by Dr. Kevin Leman
Nothing quite compares to the flavor of homemade vanilla -- and this is the easiest way to make it! No need for extra bottles or containers -- all you need is vanilla beans and a bottle of rum.
The Snowman on Christmas Eve. I absolutely love this and I need to watch it every christmas eve.. but I need to watch it alone because this always breaks me down, makes me cry. I only need to hear "walking in the air" (or apparently just think about it) and I get all tearful.. but this is my christmas tradition, I need to have a thorough cry before I can go on..
Floppy Disk Pen and Pencil Holder I think i want to do this as a gift for all the computer guys in my life. Really neat and all you need is five floppy disks and some zip ties. :)
NOW EDITABLE!! You will NEVER have to thumb around your desk and filing cabinets for what you need again! You will already have it in your binder...organized and neatly placed! After teaching for 6+ years, I finally did it and I'm super proud of it! I spoke to several of my fellow educators and found out what they needed at their fingertips and this is what I came up with. 218 pages of organization!$
Beans, beans, the magical fruit… What am I saying! You don’t want to hear about that! You want to hear about homemade BBQ beans that will put any can of beanies to shame. You wanna hear about beans that cook all day and leave your home smelling like a Kansas City BBQ pit (which is totally my
THIS IS WORTH KEEPING AND READING FREQUENTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Written by a 90 Year Old..... This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!! Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio . "To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more: 1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.. 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step. 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. 4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch. 5. Pay off your credit cards every month. 6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. 7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone. 8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it. 9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck. 10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile. 11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present. 12. It's OK to let your children see you cry. 13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it. 15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks. 16. Take a deep breath It calms the mind. 17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. 18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. 19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else. 20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer. 21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special. 22. Over prepare, then go with the flow. 23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple. 24. The most important sex organ is the brain. 25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. 26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words :'In five years, will this matter?' 27. Always choose life.. 28. Forgive everyone everything. 29. What other people think of you is none of your business. 30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time. 31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 33. Believe in miracles. 34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do. 35. Don't audit life.. Show up and make the most of it now. 36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young. 37. Your children get only one childhood. 38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved. 39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back. 41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 42. The best is yet to come... 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 44. Yield. 45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

I have been using this homemade body wash for about 6 months now and love it! If you have sensitive skin, or just want a more natural bath wash you need to try this!
Never will I regret the Love we shared, all the beauty it taught me and how it filled my spirit to do greater things. I don't care that some have made fun of me for still loving you. It is my business anyway. Not everyone feels like they met their Soul Mate. I know you have moved on, but forever you will be My First True Love
OK - I have now found my favorite "modern" car. This thing rocks.... I want one of these sooooooooo bad.... But I don't even want to guess how much it costs. I do have to say the best thing about the new camaro's is that you can have them turned into Trans AMs that are to die for........
I have to say, this is my favorite bow tutorial so far. I hadn't really expected it to turn out so well, but I just love it. And now I get to teach all of you how to do it! You will need: Ribbon pieces--measurement and qty purely depend on how big you want your bow and how many layers you'd like. I
I know I am fixated on H2O, but water is critical. Many people have 6 months of dried "beans & rice" but just a few days of water preps. Water is heavy, takes up lots of space & needs to be monitored and refreshed. A good filtration system can solve your water preps and save you lots of space and worry. Check out the "Sawyer Squeeze" system. This is a great price on a 3-pack for car, B-O-B and home/cabin. Remember to prep all 6 evenly: Hydration. Nutrition. First Aid. Hygiene. Defense. Shelter.
All I want for Christmas is my husband to return from deployment. Since I can't have that, a case of wine will do.
I am in desperate need of some more organization tips.. this is really great, gets it off the floor! But, do you think my kids will use it?
I don't have any kids. But I think this is a pretty genius idea for those who do have kids and need a safe tall stool for kids to stand on to help with cooking, crafting, you name it.
When I have time...
i have no need for more measuring cups, but this is too cute to pass up. christmas gift?
HOMEMADE PEPPERMINT TOOTHPASTEI have always been a fan of natural and bio care products. I found this simple and amazing recipe and after I tried it ,I decided to share it because it’s realy great. Before I have dicovered it, I used to wash my teeth about 2 times per week with baking soda for a better enamel remove and for whitening. You need only baking soda, coconut oil and pepermint oil. Also, another advantage is that is cheaper than a

So true . I will be faithful to a fault but once I'm done with you I'm done .. And calling six months later saying you messed up will have no effect any longer. Learned that about myself from experience :) appreciate what you have while you do or you will miss it one day

Because I…I am the monster parents tell their children about at night? Alone is what I have. >> Am I cursed? What am I? The casket wasn't the only thing you took from 221B that night was it? You could have told me what I was from the beginning! Why didn't you! I may be on side of the angels...but do not think for a second that I am one of them! Is it madness? Is it! It was all a trick. I was trying to impress you. I could have done it

Is your house overflowing with toys? Do you spend a lot of your time picking up and organizing toys? If so, you need to read this post from one mom on why they've chosen to limit toys at their house. You might not agree with all of it, but it will definitely make you think and re-examine how many toys you have at your house. #5 is my favorite!
It's all about organizing This post tells how to organize kitchen cabinets and she exposes all her drawers and cabinets to tell you how she does it! **Now all I need is to have the organization fairy come to my house and do all of this for me. A girl can dream.....**

Homemade Vanilla Extract. Takes 6 months to make. If I start it soon, I will be able to make some to give as Christmas presents!
This is what I think everyone truly wants to hear… To feel needed and loved. I know I do….. This has been quite the evening and night for so many reasons. It’s late and I have to get up in a few hours but first I think first a good cry is in order to cleanse my soul and grieve for what is over and what will never be. And in a few hours when the new day is here I will get up, put things behind me and move towards finding some magic…..
