Anthropologie {Knock Off Skirt} Tutorial

While searching for a skirt to make for a client I came across this skirt from Anthropologie.
The original skirt is over $100.  Not really in the price range. She also wanted white lace instead of black. So it was my job to recreate it.  I love the classy look with a feminine touch of lace.

Chubby Hubby Mousse Bites

I love Chocolate, peanut butter and pretzels together. Don't you?  So I took a recipe from last year  (Mousse Balls) and added a little twist!  These yummy Chubby Hubby Mousse Bites are to die for. You can ask my Fitness friend Andie from Maybe I Will.  She ate two of them.  And that is saying a lot from someone who works out twice a day and is a super health nut!  Make up a quick batch and take them to neighbors.  I promise you will be asked for this recipe!

Do you love gum? I have since I was a kid. My Dad use to bring me home a pack of sugary grape gum everyday when I was little. Grape was my favorite.

Thank heavens for Wrigley's Extra Sugar free gum! Yummy, long lasting flavor that won't kill your teeth. I love this stuff. I keep one in every bag and cup holder.

So when your at your Local Walmart and grab a few packs at the check out and use some for holiday gifts, stocking stuffers or Mistletoe Kisses! Today I want to share a few ways you can create and share with Extra gum this holiday season!

Super Hero Youth Leadership Training

As a member of the LDS church and Young Women president, I am trying very hard to cultivate leadership in our girls.  We want our girls to see the strengths in themselves and others. In an effort to do this we planned an amazing leadership training. A night filled with super speakers and power treats!

I started with this fun invitation. We kept the subject of our activity secret.  Calling it super hero training.  What girl wants to go to leadership training??? For a couple of weeks prior we had leader come to class in a cape and mask, announcing the activity. The girls got a real kick out of it.
