s'more party idea www.freetimefrolics.com #smores #printable

With my youth group a few nights ago I planned a S'more party.I called it a "S'more"gasbord.  Gourmet s'mores of all kinds! Chocolate, Grahams, marshmallows, and all the special trimmings.  I made sure to have an assortment of cookies and unusual toppings for all the girls to try. We talked a lot, played Volleyball and sang songs around the fire.

Junior High Class Schedule Printable

Several weeks ago my friend Emily at www.thebensonsstreet.com asked me to join in on her back to school series. Joining in the fun are 44 other bloggers too.  This series is jam packed with great ideas to get your kids started for school this coming year! 
 I have a son going into junior high this year so I thought it was a great opportunity to do something for him.  So after days of thought. Yes days... We are talking the dreaded Junior high where nothing is right and from day to day, his mood and attitude is a mystery.  I finally came up with something that her wouldn't be embarrassed by!

Drop Waist Lace Dress

 A while back I saw a drop waist dress that I loved.  I cost way to much money and I wanted it a different color. I have always loved the 20's drop waist style. So I made this fun drop waist lace and tricot skirt.

Zours candy marshmallow popcorn snack www.freetimefrolics.com #zoursface #shop #recipe

When I was a kid I loved sour candy.  My friends and I would have a competition to see who could eat the most sour candy at once. Did you ever do that?  We would eat until our taste buds were dead. So when I had the opportunity to head out to my local Walmart to test out the new Zours® Candy by Mike & Ike, I said Heck yeah!! They come in the perfect sized box for movie snacks, purse treat or a park snack! The sweet and sour taste takes me right back to being a kid.

Bling out your Locker with LLZ by Locker Lookz

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Locker Lookz. I was sent product for my post, but all my opinions are my own.

I can't believe summer is a third of the way done! I feel like the kids haven't been out long enough to start thinking about back to school stuff.  This year I have one of my kiddos starting Junior High.  I can't believe I have a junior High student.  With Junior High comes  a whole new set of school shopping!  So when I saw these  LLZ by LockerLookz I knew I jut had to buy them!  I love the choices they have to and I can mix and match. Any teen girl would love to show her personal style with LLZ!
