Days for Girls Service Project

A few weeks ago my ward did this service project for Days for Girls that was SO fun and so awesome.  Days for girls is a non-profit organization that works with other non-profits to provide feminine hygiene kits to girls in all parts of the world that would otherwise have to use things like leaves, mattress stuffing, newspaper, corn husks, rocks, or anything they can find and still miss days of school each month that affects their education.

You have to look in order to find the solution

I just had to share this picture of my baby- she was crying because she couldn't find her baby doll! While playing with her baby doll she accidentally tossed it behind her slightly and after looking around in front of her she couldn't find it and was upset.  This got me thinking- how often in life do we get upset or emotional when we haven't really put forth the effort needed to solve the problem? In order to solve a problem you have to actually LOOK for solutions!

My 1,000th Post!! And a gift for you!

Yay!! It's 1,000th post day! (and I have a gift for you!) I noticed the other week when I was writing up blog posts- 1,000 was coming up.  It's been a wonderful 6 years of blogging!  When I first started this blog it was simply for fun and to have a place to send people that kept asking me things like "can I have your recipe?" "how do you do that?" "what do you think about....?" And most importantly "how do you do everything you do?" - hopefully throughout the years of reading my blog you've learned that no one can do everything all the time! But you can do anything you put your mind to!

Snugg Bugg Review and Giveaway

If you haven't tried a Snugg Bugg baby carrier you are for sure missing out!  As a mom of 6 kids I would always roll my eyes at all the baby carrier/wraps thinking to myself "I just got that weight out of me and my back feels better now- why would I want to attach it back for more months?!?"  ok, that sounds horrible I know- but come on, I'm sure other moms have felt the same way after a pregnancy that seemed like 40 months rather than 40 weeks.  BUT my eyes were soon opened with my 6th baby when I was sent one to review.

How Amazon's new policy screws most Authors

If you're thinking about publishing a book or ebook on Amazon you'll want to read this first-  Starting July 1st of 2015 Amazon has changed it's payment policy for self published authors that have enrolled in their Kindle Direct Publishing Select program (KDP Select) that is drastically affecting all children's books and novels or books with less than 323 pages.  After using the KDP Select program for almost 3 years happily, these new changes were so shocking to me (and my wallet!) that I un-enrolled ALL my children's books from the program, and am debating about taking all my books off.  Let me explain what the program is, how it works, and how the changes affect authors.

Garlic Parmesan Bites

One of our favorite things to get at Domino's is the Garlic Parmesan Bites.  So this was my version- and I must say they were just as good in my opinion (although my hubby slightly prefers Domino's ones- but he's bias lol)  These were made in the same way as the pretzel bites that we love, the only difference is the seasoning I put on instead of salt once they were done.
