This little girl has my whole heart. She loves ruffles, crafting, sewing, playing with bugs and digging inthe dirt. SO when she said she wanted to be Mal from Disney’s Decendants for Halloween I rolled my eyes. Up until now she has let me pick her costumes. Some of my favorites are Rainbow Brite, Astrid from How to train your Dragon and Little Bo peep. But this year was a little different.
The 2016 theme for the youth of the LDS Church is 2 Nephi 31:20.
“Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope,
and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ,
and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life”
For my girls I love to have a little something to help them memorize the theme and keep it in their scriptures or on the wall.
Years ago as a teen I was given this recipe for homemade Oreos. They were so easy, just a few ingredients. Everyone who eats them loves them. I mean who doesn’t love an Oreo. Chocolate and creamy goodness!
Until now I have always used shortening in them. I decided to try Coconut oil in them and they were delicious! If you like Coconut and chocolate then you will love these!
There was a time when I just didn’t need the gym. My body just bounced back after babies and all was well. Now as I am aging I don’t get to enjoy that perk in life. I
HAVE get to go to the gym, watch what I eat and count my steps. I have to care. But if I have to do all these things to stay healthy, I am going to do it in style. I saw a similar headband on the internet and decided I could make one or two for myself. I used them when I went to Movara Fitness. They are super easy and sew up in about 15 minutes.
Each year for Young Women’s we have a night of celebration, sharing their accomplishment through the year. This year for our night of Excellence we decided to go outside and low key. We used the theme “Seek the Light”. We filled the night with the Light of Christ.
Thanksgiving is coming up quick. So a few weeks ago I teamed up with The Ribbon Retreat to make these quick and easy Bottle Cap Turkey Brooches and necklaces. My little Miss is so excited to give a couple away to her friends at school. I mean what little girls doesn’t love jewelry and trinkets? [Read more…]
A while back my son had to do a project in school about outer space. He had to dress up or create a project about space. Now my boys have always loved learning about space and space travel so this project was right up our alley. Instead of doing a project, we decided to do a costume. I came up with this super easy Orion constellation costume.
I know Halloween is over but this Mom just didn’t get time to blog about it. So here we are 1 week later and just getting costumes on the blog. My preschooler is in love with the Paw Patrol, especially Zuma.
He along with every other 4 year old.
He is obsessed.
The action figures have a permanent place on the front living room coffee table. He and his sister play for hours together. So when he asked to be Zuma, his favorite rescue pup, From Nick Jr.’s Paw Patrol I said let’s do it. [Read more…]
Fall is here and that means boot season!! I am obsessed with boots. I love them with skirts, leggings and jeans. So this year I decided to make a few pairs of decorative boot socks. You can use them to dress things up or with a Sunday dress. And these little beauties are super simple to make and a lot less expensive than the store bought ones. So here is what you need:
Happiness with ourselves is equivalent to our Self Worth. A few weeks ago I felt impressed to talk to my girls about being Happy. So many times in our life we judge others, we talk about others, and say things about others all because we feel unhappy about ourselves, jealousy or guilt. We do these things because we are not truly happy with ourselves. We only see our glass half empty and want to feel better about ourselves. In the end, the opposite is true. We feel worse about ourselves and the cycle continues.
