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.

Witch-fest is a amazing Girls night out, Family night or Date Night.  Witches, shopping, pony rides and yummy food.  
We started our night with Eric Dowdel, painter and Folk artist. He is an amazing speaker and Artist.  He signed and gave each of us his newest puzzle "Witchfest" in our swag bags.

Almost Lasagna (Recipe)

This recipe is one of my favorites!  It tastes just like lasagna but so much easier to to. You can add extras to pack a punch or just leave it the way it is for your picky eaters. Serve it up with a side salad and garlic bread and your meal is complete! I love doubling this meal and putting one in the freezer for when I need a quick dinner.

A few weeks ago I went on a thrifting trip with a few friends.  I totally need fashion help so I was lucky to be thrifting with Ashley from Flats to Flip Flops and Meg from Brassy Apple. (check out there blogs...Amazeballs!)
I have been on the hunt for a military styled vest.  But have found nothing. Finally while out shopping I found this Military jacket for just $4.  Yipee!  I was so excited!

How to make Grapevine Ball Decorations

I have this crafty friend. She makes all kinds of great things on a whim.  Every time I go to her house she has something new to show me.  She is super talented at painting and jewelry making.  (Both things not my strong point.)  But one day I saw these cool grapevine orbs. She has 2 of them sitting on her porch. The first question out of my mouth, "Where did you get those?"  They were truly amazing.  Then she preceded to tell me she made them.  My heart stopped knowing I was unable to make them because the snow had already begun to fall. So no more grapevines for the season.  So I kept this beautiful spheres in the back of my mind until fall.   
So this year I have been anticipating this project!  I visited family who had grapes and harvested the vines myself and a few grapes too!
