Thrifty Thursday

Easter Grass Tips
  Do you happen to have some scraps of construction paper laying around your house?  Well I did so I decided to put it to some good use...homemade Easter grass.  Simply run it through a paper shredder and toss around to get the colors blended and there ya go!  I was quite impressed at how it turned teenage daughter now thinks I am very!
  Do you always end up with a lot of Easter grass left and don't like to store it from year to year...try using it as packaging material to cushion breakables. 
  If you have a cat, be sure to gather up every last piece of the store bought Easter grass because your feline will try to eat it.
  Do you have any ideas/tips that have to do with Easter grass?  If so, please feel free to leave a comment below.

Washing Wednesday

What to do with all that left over Easter dye????

Okay I am sure somebody somewhere has already had this idea, used this idea and posted this idea but, I was sitting here tonight and thinking about Easter related posts and realized I always have a ton of left over color and always wash it down the drain.......

What a waste!!!!

I could be using this Easter Egg Dye and making the kids:

tie dye tshirts
less boring PJ's
hair accessories (Mommy in Pa reminded me of this one lol!)
This is just the few things I rattled off the top of my head, If I missed anything PLEASE feel free to comment below and remind me of other items to tie dye!!

Tasty Tuesday - "LooneySpoons" Review

"LooneySpoons" Book Review

disclaimer: I received this book from Hay House Inc. in exchange for as honest review and all opinions are my own.

Mommy in Ga says:
I am a mom of 4 so I am always looking for new ways to shed a few pounds!!  The baby will be 4 in may and I swear people only accept "It's from my pregnancy" as an excuse for so long!!

I saw this book in the Hay House Book Nook and thought it looked like a fun and easy solution to the problem I have!  There are tons of recipes and they all have really fun names.  I was trying to think of ways to tie Easter into this post and ran across:

Deviled in Disguise (your not so traditional deviled egg)
Shanks for the Memory (old-fashioned, smokey ham and split pea soup)

thinking they would tie in to Easter nicely for the mere fact you can use your leftover ham and boiled eggs to do these!

These are only 2 of the 325+ ("I can't believe these are healthy") recipes in this book and I just want to tell yall, almost all of them sound delicious and the motto the authors, Janet and Greta Podleski, is "Lick your Lips and Shrink your hips!" 

This cook book covers your:
appetizers (get appy)
Salads (Become a beleafer)
Soups (Ladle Gaga)
Vegetarian (Eats Without Meats)
Pasta (When Ya Hasta have Pasta)
Chicken (Chicken Worth Pickin)
Your Fish ( A fine Kettle Of Fish)
Beef and Pork  ( It's a Meat Market)
Ground Meat (Ground Keepers)
Sides (The Bright Sides)
and of course you have to have:
Sweets (Bring Home The Bakin')

These are just a few of the fun Play on words' that they do, I was reading some of these titles and actually laughed out loud.

The recipes taste good, are good for you and best of all, help you keep an eye on your figure without losing the flavor!!!

Hope you will keep this cookbook in mind when you are in need of a new one!!
Also you can check out the Janet and Greta website here for more recipes and info. !

"Be Still My Heart" Book Review

disclaimer: I did receive this book from multnomah books in exchange for an honest review from me, I can tell you all opinions are my own.

Be Still My Heart
Written by: Joanne Bischof

Be Still My Soul

This is a heartfelt novel that draws you in quickly.  You give every response when you are supposed to give it!  You will laugh and cry, chuckle and tear up.

This book is a bout a 17 year old girl in the early 20th century, Lonnie, she is shy and tends to keep to herself, her family is poor and her father abusive.  All of these things piled against her and she still managed to hold onto her faith.

One night her father catches the local smooth talking ladies' man in the town, Gideon, stealing a kiss and thinking it was much more than that forcing the 2 young adults into a rushed marriage.

Gideon has only ever cared about himself and never had to worry about anybody else, being pushed into a marriage with a girl he barely knew triggered rage in Gideon, and the tale takes you on a road you have to follow to believe.  It is a common question through all Lonnie endures through the book, will she keep her faith through it all?  I know the answer, you will have to read and find out!

This was one of the better novels and I can honestly say it kept me intrigued through out the entire storyline.  I would like to tell yall more about this book but, I want to give you just enough to pull you in so you will get it and read and enjoy the same way I enjoyed it!!

Give this book a chance it is a great one to invest your time in from my point of view.

Maybe Monday (Product Review)

disclaimer:  I did receive these shoes in compensation for a review posted on our blog however ALL opinions are my own (along with what the kids' thought!!!)

The sparkle makes this a great week to do the Lelli Kelly review, due to the Easter holiday coming up!!

I would like to start with the fact that I pulled up  and showed the girls' all of the shoes and lets' just say these three girls' were in their element!!!
Once the shoes arrived we opened the box and as you can see in the picture below, they are not boring at all, I wish I would have had my camera to catch the excitement that flew across all of their faces!

The pair pictured above is for my 8 year old, she loves them so much she actually wears them all the time!!!  She loves all the colors which makes them much easier to match to an outfit!! 
She told me they are very comfortable and as you can see they are very easy for the kids' to put on themselves, that goes for all ages!!!
This middle pair was to be for my 10 year old, but, unfortunately her feet must have grown and they did not fit but she loved the glitter and thought the butterflies were awesome!!  I did not report this to the company as it was a free product but, the contact I had with the customer service, they would fix your problem as quickly and friendly as possible, if reported!
This last pair was for my youngest daughter and again the bright colors and beads were what caught her eye, she also LOVES her Lelli Kelly shoes!!!  She wears them as often as possible and came home and told me they are even approved to wear for the days they have P.E lol!

All said and done: This is a great sturdy and appealing product.  They are comfortable to wear and the kids' love the glitter and beads!
When dealing with customer service everything went smooth and they were very friendly (which I find also makes you enjoy the product better also!!)

Below is a video of some of the Lelli Kelly products!

Storytime Sunday

Your Local Library

This is not our average storytime sunday!! This storytime sunday will be based on :  How well do you know your local library??!!  I personally did not know mine very well but, i was there the other day returning a book for one of my little ones and happened to walk past a bookshelf that said "Help your library!" 

 You could go through the shelf and the soft cover books were 50 cents and you could get a hardcover for a dollar, mind you it is only select books chosen by your library and all libraries may not do this but, it is definately worth looking into!!

Also mommy in Pa reminded me that you can go into your local library and not only check out books but movies as well!!
You can use the computers in your library and I am almost positive I am forgetting a few things (maybe you want to leave a comment and remind me of what I have forgotten??!!)

Another great thing is, in the city where mommy in Pa and  i grew up there is a bookstore called "Rosies bookstore" you take the books you have already read and trade them in for new books!!

disclaimer: I received nothing in exchange for this post just a little something that was on my mind!!
