My new toy: Tower Garden by JuicePlus


Every summer, I get bit by the gardening bug, I buy tons of plants, dirt, fertilizer, stuff with cow poop in them, gloves, garden gears and cute hats. The only thing I've ever seen a harvest with is my hot peppers I had 4 peppers. This year I got a new toy! my tower garden, it ran itself! all I have to do is fill the tank set the timer and it grows itself. I am in love! 
I just harvested some of the lettuce, they were so good! little bug eats them right off the tower it's too cute.
I can wait for the rest of my stuff to grow!

Any of you ever heard of the tower garden?

What I've Learned From Grandpa Ed
from Two Teens and Their Momma

Last Friday I posted my gratitude list for the month, and I included my Grandpa Ed, who will be 96 in September.  There was unanimous love for grandpa in my comments, so today I'd like to share a few of the things I've learned from him.  You can't make it to his age without some great words of wisdom, right?  Like I said on Friday, I want to be just like him when I grow up.  
You can’t have a holiday without some sort of cheesecake. It is against the law, or something!! Cheesecake is such a great summer treat and these red, white and blue cheesecake bars are perfect for the upcoming holiday.


Non Toxic Sunscreen Recipe
Summer is upon us!  Which means for the fair skinned it’s time to cover up or lather up! Conventional store bought sunscreen can be laden with harmful chemicals which have been questioned to cause more harm then good.  CNN did a study where it was found that 25% of 800 tested sunscreens were effective at protecting skin without the use of potentially harmful ingredients, which means that, 75% of sunscreens contain harmful ingredients! 


Let's talk about FAITH | Forever Ashley
With so many big changes coming our way now and in the next few weeks I’ve been finding it hard to stay strong in my faith in God.   It’s never a matter of having faith that He exists (I know He does) but rather it is about having faith that everything is going to be ok, that it is going to work out, and that we are doing the right thing.

Lip Balm or Lip Gloss Holder Key Ring!!!


Hello Friends! Today, I'm sharing a lip balm holder key ring that I made this weekend. These can  hold lip balm and keys.

Healthy Chocolate Oat Cookies

When it comes to cookies, I’m all about soft, chewy and fudge-like textures. None of that crisp and crunchy stuff for me, thank you very much. 

Blaverry | Cruise Chino Shorts pattern
We love the Cruise Chino Shorts from the 2014 Nautical Collection at Blaverry. After my tween summer shorts patterns post, several of you asked about Blaverry patterns- so here’s my answer.

Tuesday Shoesday: Thrifted ankle strap

It's official I have a thrifting problem and I have a major thing for ankle straps.

Thrifting has always been a hobby of mine ever since my girlfriend introduce me the fun, I usually go looking for great vintage fabrics to upcyle. 

It's been ages since I've sewn anything, so my focus have kinda changed and landed on these shoes! 

OMG!

The are the most comfortable shoes I've ever own, they are they are the cutest soft buttery leather have ever slip my foot in. 
It's a Brazilian brand, I've been looking for it everywhere. they've use that pure genuine leather oh so soft. These shoes definitely made the list of things Jesus would have in heaven!

Yep they're that good! 

and to pay $5 for them that's SO my kinda heaven on earth!

Any thrifters in the house?

Summer Chronicles: The Beach life



Hola Chicas!

It is summer in full throttle around my parts, it is HOT and more HOT.
Therefore water have been a huge friend to us and water seems to put over energized 5&6 year old to sleep rather quickly too. So I tell you HUGE friend!

I mostly prefer the pool, I live 10 minutes from the beach and I haven't been in a year. Don't get me wrong I love the beach! it's the aftermath that scares me. you know things like sand in hair, sand in my car, sand everywhere. This time I brace the trip and went, oh am I glad I did!

The weather was amazing! I usually don't get in the water cause the waves are usually turbulent but this time it was perfect! we were in the water for over 4 hours, we ate mangoes, collect sea shells, build sand castle. it was a simple day yet a magical one!

We had tons of fun, so much so I wanna overlook my sand problem and go back.... as soon as it stopped raining!

What's in your summer days?

4th of July Coffee Filter Fireworks Pom Poms

Coffee Filter Pom Pom Craft
Summer is the perfect time to try new crafts, especially on rainy afternoons. If you are in search of an easy and entertaining craft that results in a cute 4th of July decoration this is your project. I expected my girls to decorate maybe 10 coffee filters before moving on, but nearly two hours later we decorated more than 50 filters. And my six year old would have kept going if wasn’t time for dinner. 



Mississippi Mud Pie No Bake Cheesecake

Mississippi Mud Pie No Bake Cheesecake
My kids loved my recent recipe of my Mississippi Mud cookies, in fact two days later they were asking me to make them again. I didn’t want to make the exact same thing, so I turned their new favorite cookies into a no bake cheesecake which is a dessert they always seems to love. So enjoy this summer sensation as a family, at a BBQ or pool side party.


Frozen Birthday Invitations – 2 Designs!

from One Creative Mommy

Olaf Frozen-Themed Birthday Party Invitations!  {Free Printable from OneCreativeMommy.com}
Last weekend, we hosted a Frozen Birthday Party for Lu, and I'm worn out!  If you read my blog regularly, you know that I go a little nuts when it comes to birthday parties.  I love to host themed parties, and I love to create games and crafts to go with the parties.

Yard Sale Milk Glass

I went to a yard/estate sale Saturday where two lovely ladies were selling what was left of their mothers things,    Their mother had amassed quite a collection of milk glass....about two rooms full.   



Grilled Corn, Zucchini & Black Bean Enchiladas 

from LeMoine Family Kitchen

veggieenchilada
How do I balance out all those cookie recipes I’ve been sharing? Well, with a Meatless Monday Mexican dish of course! Its been awhile since I’ve posted a Meatless Monday recipe but I’ve certainly been making an effort to create more vegetarian meals for my family. These Grilled Corn, Zucchini & Black Bean Enchiladas are absolutely wonderful! They are incredibly flavorful and filling and of course full of good for you veggies and lean protein of the beans. The homemade enchilada sauce is really what brings the flavor and makes this dish a bit addicting!


  The product I'm reviewing today is Maybelline's SuperStay 24HR Concealer. This is literally the best concealer I've ever used. No joke. I've tried the really expensive ones and none of them have the staying power that this one does. I live in a very humid area, so any make up on my face has to practically be glued down. 



A Portrait of Feminine Dress ~ From Church to Wedding

Mommi2bella, feminine ruffled skirt, dress-up, vintage
With weddings and graduations coming up, I’ve been thinking a lot about what to wear. As I get older, I sometimes have to put a good bit of effort into attire so I am not frumpy. As we work on the heart issues of modesty, let’s also turn our attention to the exterior for a few moments!

old fashion apple pie 005a
Old Fashion Apple Pie reminds me of one such commercial.  Every time I think about it I remember a jingle from an old Chevrolet commercial that promoted all things American.  They sang a chorus about “Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Chevrolet.  They go together in the Good Ol’ USA.”
