I Need To Take A Sabbatical

This has been something that has been weighing on my mind for some time now. I love this blog and feel an emotional tie to it, along with somewhat of an obligation for whatever reason. Alas, after much deliberation and pondering I have decided to take a sabbatical for a while.

Homemade Finger Paints

I remember loving finger paints as a kid, and my kids loved them as well. What a great way to waist away some time during those long summer days when there isn't any school! This is super easy, and will keep the troops busy - for a little while anyway ;o) I found this great recipe on Easie Peasie.

Checking In

Sorry I have been checked out thus far this week, the momma-in-law is here and I have been spending the week entertaining her: we even had one day of good weather to take her to the lake.... one day, that was all, but it was a great day! (I really think I need to go back to Hawaii!) Hopefully I will be back on track next week, but it is summer ;o) I'll do my best!

Butter Pecan Ice Cream

As we enter into the summer months, I am usually found in the garage dusting off the ice cream maker and gathering all of the parts for assembly. Ice cream is one of my favorite foods and it's even yummier when it's freshly homemade: it's pure, natural, soft-serve amazingness.

FREE Vinatage Father's Day Labels

You just made a batch of that awesome BBQ sauce, or made some wonderful Father's Day cookies, and now it's time to package it up in a neat presentation. Here are three labels you can use to put on the outside of your jars and containers to make them look great. Just print them out on label paper, peel and stick. Walla, wrapping done: and it's in a unique fun packaging.

I Was Spanked As A Child

I am here to admit that I was, in fact, spanked as a child. I am opening up to my parents abuse of me. What cruel, mean and amazing parents. I deserved every single spank I ever got. I grew up balanced, loving and caring for others. I am not a bully. I am not aggressive. I am not an abusive parent. I am just the way I should be. And, yes, I spanked my kids.

Rock "Horseshoes"

Remember those pet rocks from your youth? The rock that you wandered around picking through piles to find: it had to have just the right shape and size? The one you lovingly took home to paint into the character it would become? What a great experience you can have again, with the kids: and I have a great game you can play with those fun little critters.

June Holidays

Welcome June!! It's almost officially summer, and I can't wait to start getting that official summer weather (though we usually don't start getting that here until after the 4th of July).

I love warm summer nights, bbq's and picnics! - that totally sounded like a singles tag line ;o) - happy June, and get out there and have some fun. Here's  your June Holidays.
