Calm down bottle

I have seen these bottles all over Pinterest and have had it on my to do list to make for about 7 months or more. Yeah I finally did it. It was so easy and both my little ones love it. Lets be honest here, there are times in the day where I am staring into it too to find my calm spot as a pray for patience. What can I say I like stuff that is shiny! Okay so here is how to do it. get a clear container of your chose. I used a Voss water bottle cause it was a harder plastic and I was not about to use glass around an upset child. Especially since my son thinks you should throw everything that is handed to him. fill it 3/4 of the way with warm water then add 1/2 bottle of glitter glue. Elmers is the best. put the lid on and shake then add more glitter use fine glitter the bigger ones kinda ruin the effect. I learned from experience on that one.:( then fill the rest of the way with water and hot glue the lid. and you are done. Ingredient: *container of your choose *warm water *Elmer's glitter glue *fine glitter NOT big ones *hot glue

I love making school lunches! It is so much fun to think about and plan. I found a couple sites that have free printables for lunch box notes on Pinterest. These sites have my favorites. Reasons to skip the housework , Frugal coupon living , and Moritx fine blog designs Here is her first two days of schools lunches. the sandwich and turkey wrap are double stacked

I am back!

I am back! Finally! Since my last post I got pregnant after 15 stressful months of trying. This can be a very sad and frustrating time in a women’s life, if you know anyone going through this please pray for them. Ask God to show them patience in waiting on his plan. In February 2013 I had a beautiful little boy, named J. My sweet little bundle was up every 2 hours for a year. Let’s just say I forgot how old I was this year for my birthday. My 6 year old had to remind me I was 33 not 32! I don’t know how we do it! God sure did design us with that in mine. H just started 1st grade on Monday and I am so proud of her. She is growing into such a wonderful young lady. J is now 18 months old and now that H is back in school and summer is behind us, I am ready to start tot school with J. I am so excited to be spending a lot of one on one time with him this year. It does feel so weird without H playing and singing around the house. I will be honest I am struggling so much more emotionally with her going to 1st grade than I did for kindergarten.
