pinterest back to school

Schools here in Southern Utah head back to school soon.... Like next week! {It starts on the 13th!} Ahhhh! Anyway, every year I try to take my girlies down to Vegas to get the bulk of our shopping done! We went a few weeks ago and had a blast which in turns help with all the back to school craziness! Too bad it doesn't eliminate all of it...Ha! I've put together an amazing list of some fun and helpful tips to help … [Read more...]

girls camp craft ideas

One of my top five fights ever with my husband was about a Super Saturday where a bunch of ladies from our ward get together and do projects all day. I had a major meltdown because I took over leading a project for someone else who went into preterm labor and for the life of me I could not get it to work. Granted, the projects we were making were not for beginners, and I had learned how to make the item too … [Read more...]

what to do in the event of a scorpion sting

Let me start off by saying that I am not a doctor, but my son got bit by a scorpion last week, and this is what we learned from experience.  We live in Southern Utah and scorpions are common in our area. We get our home sprayed at least every six weeks to prevent them from getting into our home. But two weeks ago, me and the kids were home alone and around 11 pm, I heard a blood-curdling scream from … [Read more...]

Father's day gift ideas (1 of 1)

The struggle is real. I don't think of creative things 3-6 months in advance. My brain does not work like that. I do admit that I bought a 12 pack of "Dad's Root Beer" a few weeks ago from Costco because I thought it would be fun for the kids to take a few neighborhood dads a drink on Father's Day. BUT, those didn't last. {Ahem, thanks to my husband who started swigging them approximately 2 hours after I told him what … [Read more...]

By the time you read this, I will be officially on my way to girls' camp. Wish me luck on this adventure.

fathers day

I heard recently that Mother's Day is BEFORE Father's Day for a reason.... So I mentioned this to the hubby in hopes that he would up his game this year. The better gift I got, the better gift he gets. Lol. I'm kidding I don't really work like that.... but it is funny! Anyway, this post was originally for a male teacher gift but I thought it would be totally appropriate for Father's Day as well!! So fun and if … [Read more...]

punch-card-5th-year NEW

We are counting down. Girls' Camp is in less than two weeks. We are headed to Bear Lake this year, and I am so excited. I have never been to Bear Lake. It's a pretty far car ride so if you have any ideas how we can help the time go by faster for our YW, please don't hesitate to tell me. I'm guessing it will take us around 7 hours of driving to get there. If you are a camp director, you know that certifications are a … [Read more...]

Font Favorites Lines Edition

I'm a font fanatic. I don't usually get sucked into Facebook or other social media, but I could spend hours upon hours looking through font websites. I love fonts. I should marry them. These fonts are my favorite ones lately since recently I can't get enough of liney fonts. I know "liney" isn't a word. But, it fits the description perfectly. Mark my words, it will be in the dictionary someday. {cute doodle … [Read more...]
