Hacky Sack Anyone? #pokemongo

Hubby has always been really into hacky sack, as has his dad, so it’s something we’ve started doing, as a family, in the evenings. I think the last time I played was when I was 8 or so months pregnant with Michael, and he just turned 10 on August 11th! So it had been a while. We got some cheap hacky sacks at Wal-Mart but they seem to bust way too easily, so Hubby gave me a request to make one. So I did.  Read More

Now that summer is here and we are gearing up to get away we must consider if we are choosing the right kind of escape.

Pure Vida Bracelets

I have always enjoyed wearing bracelets, especially if they’re not extremely heavy! When I found Pura Vida Bracelets I was pretty excited because they’ve got braided bracelets, which are my absolute downfall. I love them! I have always enjoyed making braided friendship style bracelets, but could only ever do that… just braided. I never could do the fancy designs or anything.  Read More

Wannabe Photographer

One of my favorite hobbies is to take pictures, one of these days I’m going to get paid to take pictures for families. It WILL happen, You mark my words! It’s something that I really enjoy. I do my photography with my Canon EOS Rebel T5i that I got for Christmas this past year (well, really, I got it at Black Friday 2015 but it was my Christmas gift!) as well as my Samsung Note 5. I won’t lie and say that I don’t have a lot to learn still because the honest truth is I still know very little about it. Read More

Applying for Jobs

So I just got home from a job interview at Casey’s General Store. I applied for the Kitchen in the evenings, so if I get that, great! If not, I’m going to look for other places to apply as well. It’s not exactly that I NEED to get a job, but to be honest, things haven’t been going so well with It Works, because a lot of my team has quit working as hard as they were and I can only do so much, so the extra money from a job would be great if I can get one.  Read More

Need my Crochet Mojo back!

I have been crocheting since 2010, and I’ve never gone as long as I have currently without picking up my crochet hook and yarn! It’s been since the end of February since I’ve crocheted anything at all! I’m not entirely sure what the deal is, but I need my mojo back! I’ve got 3 skeins of yarn for an afghan that I’ll hopefully start today (since WoW is down, and I am done working my It Works business until the kids wake up & I am able to go to the store and Blitz people!)  Read More
