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...]


I have THE. BEST. recipe for fish.  It’s pretty intense, so prepare yourself. Step 1: Go to Costco. Step 2: Buy this box of tortilla crusted tilapia: source Step 3: Follow the instructions. The end. I know my friends came to this post thinking it was a joke. Well they were partly right. I do cook at times, but I’m not one to slave in the kitchen all day to put a delicious meal on the table. In … [Read more...]


Hey, hey, hey! How was your weekend? I’m a little slow to post today because I have a weekend hangover.  <---can you relate? Do you ever feel like you need a weekend to recover from your weekend? That’s how I feel today. Our weekend was mostly defined by two words: Dance Competition. My oldest is a really good dancer {yes I’m bragging, but I can’t help it}. And it is so much fun watching her dance. But every dance … [Read more...]


Hi there! It's Aly from Entirely Eventful Day. I am so thrilled that Brooke asked me to share a fun, girlie project with you. I hope you love this printable as much as I do!  If you like it, please check out my other printables. I have a daughter. She is amazing. Sometimes she worries.

chore chart for kids[3]

Today I get to be on Studio 5, a morning show in Utah, and I’m excited to show my fun spinning chore chart on the show today! This project was a challenge from Studio 5 to make something fun out of 2 Lazy Susans from IKEA. IKEA is one of my fave stores on the planet. In fact, before IKEA was available in Utah, I would travel to California specifically to visit IKEA. I know, it may sound silly to you, but it’s the … [Read more...]

Valentines Box[4]

I use my Silhouette all the time. I love it, and my kids all needed Valentine boxes for their class parties tomorrow, so we whipped out these bad boys in about an hour.   We use double-sided adhesive to make some really fun glitter hearts! It was super easy!     I use my Portrait a lot because it’s little and I can get it all set up quick. The Silhouette Portrait and the double-sided adhesive kit is on … [Read more...]


To answer the question that I know you are thinking, yes these are really my car mats. You may think I am disgusting after seeing the floor mats from my mini-van. It’s true, I have four kids that LOVE to spill, spit, and on occasion barf in the car. It’s gross, I agree, but, here is a look into my life on a daily basis. We basically live in the car on some days of the week. Thursdays are especially crazy for us. We … [Read more...]

Taking away your child's binky

Creed is a monster. He is obsessed with his binky all the sudden which tells me that I should have taken it away all long time ago. Damn, I mean darn {for some reason that is the ONLY word that explains my frustration with myself}. It is time to take control, but I’m nervous because I think I might like it more than he does. It is INSTANTLY quiet around here if he has it, and the thought of going to church without it … [Read more...]


  First of all, I have to comment on my hubby’s clean shaven head. Don’t you think he looks handsome!?!? I LOVE when he shaves his head like this. :) The other day we were driving down our street and our Brazilian neighbor {I LOVE HER} was standing out on the sidewalk. We pulled over to chat for a bit and she told Dan that he looked “Sooooo sexy” with his hair shaved. I love her accent and it made me smile because … [Read more...]

best homemade stain remover ever

I love pinning, and Pinterest rocks my world, but before I ever post about anything that I pin, I vowed {to myself} to MAKE the recipe first, TRY the sewing technique, and TEST the technique before I share it with me readers. I don’t want you to ever try something and think, MAN THAT cookie is DIS-GUSTING and BROOKE TOLD ME TO MAKE IT!! Ha ha. So, just know that I will never do that to you, kapeesh!?!? With that said, do … [Read more...]
