Girl Scouts Thin Mints Crumble Cookies

Were you a Girl Scout? Do you have daughters who are Girl Scouts? I believe I joined a local Girl Scout troop that my next door neighbor’s mom ran. Our troop was small, but we had so much fun. Before that, I was in the Girl Scout Brownies. I remember doing so many activities.

6 Houseplants To De-Stress Your Home And Purify The Air

Beauty Brite Disclosure

For some reason, plants always caught my eye whether in public or in someone’s home. Since we moved into our own home, I love rearranging my plants, rotating them towards the sun, and even moving my plants to different rooms. I also enjoy keeping their foliage clean and dust free. I don’t use any products to keep their leaves shiny. If my houseplants are dusty or dirty, I just splash some water on them for a little shower.

Several nights a week my husband works overtime on night shift which leads this mama bear to get all of the kids fed, bathed, and entertained until bedtime. Mom guilt sets in and while it is so EASY to grab the tablet or turn on a movie, I usually like filling this time with books that I can easily tie a craft in with or with other independent activities that get my kid’s brains running but their bodies in one place. Feed thir brains and moms sanity all in one. An occupied child means I can get the house picked up so when everyone is fast asleep in bed, I can sit back and RELAX. I know, that sounds horrible but I enjoy a few hours of solitude after the kids have gone to bed to catch up on my TV shows or even read a book. We Craft Box has made my last minute evening task, rainy day activity, and even a moment of silence possible.

Upgrade your Home Tech

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I am currently making changes and wanted to upgrade a few tech items! First, I recently upgraded to a new laptop a few weeks ago! I am very happy with my purchase. My old laptop was at least 5 or 6 years old and on its last leg. One of the plastic hinge covers was broken off and I could see the wires, plus the laptop itself was super heavy! I wanted a laptop that I could fold into a tablet. I wanted a flexible and lightweight laptop! Since I upgraded my laptop, I wanted to personalize it a bit, so I found a few fun items that are perfect!

Are you looking to upgrade your home tech? We found a few awesome products to get started!

Gardening for the Brown Thumb

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Recently, I have been trying to teach my daughter how to grow food and flowers as she is learning so much while in her preschool class. They have been going over how flowers grow, why leaves change, and where food comes from. However, I will be the first to admit that I have NO gardening experience whatsoever. I was raised by my Southern grandmother and while she grew up on a farm and had a garden of her own, the green thumb did not pass down.

Cinnamon Apples Chips Are A Must Try Fall Recipe

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It is finally the season where apple picking is in full swing. Hayrides, petting zoos, apple cider, apple picking, and pumpkin picking make for a spectacular afternoon out with the family. However, if you are anything like me, when its all said and done I am left wondering what am I supposed to do with all these apples? What recipe can I find to meet the taste buds of my family so they will demolish all of these apples before they rot?

Don’t get me wrong, my kids LOVE apples but not to the extent to match the number of apples we picked on our weekend trip to the Apple Orchard. There is only so much applesauce I can make. So I did what anyone else does, and started googling away.

The biggest problem I found was that it seemed like there was only one component I liked from recipes which left me to continue on my search. I gave my Grandmother a call and she gave me the perfect idea of what to do with the apples. I do not take full credit for this recipe as there are so many variations on the internet, cookbooks, etc. I am just sharing the recipe that I have gone by and worked best for my needs.
