At Home Spa Hands Treatment

I love myself some soft hands.  So when I did a  Sally Hansen nail party (Here) I just had to share my quick and easy, at home spa hands treatment.   It's a little trick I learned while flying around the world as a flight attendant.   The air is so dry and as a flight attendant you are washing your hands all the time. It makes for dry, cracked and sometimes painful hands!  When your on an airplane you have very limited supplies. You of course have what's in your bag. Plus snacks and beverages.  I am not sure who came up with this Mini spa hands treatment but I am sure glad they did.

Easy Homemade Fruit Roll Up's

Last week I attended SNAP!  While  hanging out with some fantastic bloggers I pulled out my Cracked Fruit.  I passed it around and had a little myself.  One of the girls asked what it was and if the recipe was on my blog.  I guess I thought everyone knew how to make homemade fruit crack. So I have never share my super amazing treat with you all. Easy Homemade Fruit Roll Ups!!
I have a love of all things fruity. Have I mentioned I have a fruit allergy??  I am super allergic to most fruits and some veggies.  I have a really hard time getting enough in my diet. A friend gave me this quick and easy recipe. An I LOVE it.  I can have a yummy sweet treat without all the sugar and preservatives.  It only takes 2 ingredients and your stove. This is my go to healthy snack.

Time Out for Women {Idaho Falls}

I love myself a great Girls Weekend.  Usually its filled with great food, girl talk and no kids.  This weekend was a little like this but so much more.  For those of you who don't know I am a Mormon.  I blog like all the rest of my crazy, crafty, blogger friends. And I am Mormon.  I love my faith and practices its teachings.  One of the great things about where I live and is there is a large populations of LDS members here.  Because of the large population we have opportunities to attend church related  engagements.  One such engagement is Time Out For Women (TOFW). Time Out for Women is a weekend gathering of women to listen and be uplifted through speakers, music and service.
So I teamed up with these amazing friends and attended TOFW. It was an awesome experience.  

Here is what I needed to hear!!

Homemade Croutons {Recipe}

Salad Season is on its way. I can feel it!  Fresh fruits and vegetables are just waiting to spring up in home gardens every where.  And who doesn't love yummy croutons to top off their salad.  I love to make Chef and Cesar salads in the summer for my family with fresh homemade croutons. A few years back I was in a class with a chef who shared his homemade croutons. They are simple and easy.  They have no preservatives (which isn't a problem cuz they probably won't even make it to a ziploc for later.) These yummy little croutons could even become your evening snack like popcorn only better.

Girls Inspiration Collage Wall + Free Printable

I have been working on a little something for my daughter. Growing up is tough.  I want her to have strong role models that lift her up and make her feel good about herself, to always look for the good, have courage, know that beauty is not everything and when hard times come, to know that she can do it.
  I love collage walls. So I decided to combine my collage wall with a few inspirational quotes. The collage wall will serve as daily reminder of what she is capable of.

Downeast Spring Mixer

A few weeks ago I was invited to a blogger's night out at Down East Outfitters. What a great store.  There Spring had come out just in time for some great weather.  We chatted and tried on clothes. It was one big fashion show! These ladies are seriously great.  And the Down East clothes are to die for.  It is one of my favorite places to shop. Take a few minutes check out your local store or online.(www.downeastbasics.com)

Mom's Away Free printable for Dad's & Caregivers

Do you remember the old adage "When Mom's away the mice will play??"  Well my little mice will play and maybe starve a little if I don't leave some guidance behind. Coming up super quick my husband will be home with all 4 kids by... his... self. My Husband tries but he is no mom.  Staying home with 4 kids, being on call 24/7, cooking, cleaning and being mom for a long weekend is not really his wheelhouse.  That is my department for good reason.  But every once in a blue moon I get a girls weekend.  Don't we all deserve a weekend with just the girls??  Well my weekend is coming up quick.  For Christmas this year I received a ticket to Snap! a blogging conference. And with this fabulous gift my husband is taking 2 days off work to allow me to go. Now let me emphasize how BIG of a deal this is.  My husband does not take work of for me to go have fun. This is Ginormous.  That is why him taking 2 days off was my only Christmas present.  My ticket was a combined effort on my part. 
So with that being said, I want to make sure my kiddos are taken care of, as though I was right there. And everything will go smoothly for him.  So maybe in the future I can attend other conferences (ahem...Breathing Spaces) and Girls Weekends. So I came up with a quick free printable for my husband.  Just a little something to help him through his day. And to make sure my kids get to school, take naps, get medicine and go to sports on time. These are great to for babysitters or caregivers.  Just fill them out and leave with your kiddos and the person in charge.

Easy Color Block Tees DIY

Have you seen the new styles in stores lately? I feel like I am in a flashback.  My 12 year old self on Christmas day wearing my color blocked shirt and acid washed hot pink jeans.  I was so cute.  As I shop for my daughter I see tons of clothing styles and colors I wore back in the day.  I keep seeing color blocking  and Neon everywhere.  Instead of buying all those expensive shirts I decided to make my own.  You can make yourself  2 shirts for under $10.  Here is how you do it.
