Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins!

Hey everyone! So we carved pumpkins last night. Well actually I carved 3 and my hubby spent the entire night carving his own! LOL

But in any event this is more of just a here is how they turned out post not a how to post. I forgot to take pics first of all and I am by no means a carving master as you will see, so I have no business telling you how to do it!

But anyway my oldest wanted a witch and we printed out the template from www.marthastewart.com and then she just taped it on the pumpkins and traced it out. Then I cut it for her. The boys both wanted their initials. We drew those on the pumpkins free hand and then I cut those out too.

So this is how Isabel's and the boy's turned out

And then we had the perfectionist of a hubby's. He seriously spent forever on this! But it did come out awesome!!

Can you tell he is a deer hunter? And the deer kind of looks spooky so it is very halloweenish!!

Do you carve pumpkins? Have you done it yet this year?

Sorry this was so late today but hope you had a great Wednesday!!

No more Bullies!

Hey everyone!! How are ya? I am great, no real reason other than I just am happy today! Well today is my daddies birthday!! But other than that its just a good Tuesday!!.

So by now any of you have seen or heard about this lady...

If not this is Jennifer Livingston. She is my most favorite morning news lady! I love to wake up and turn on the TV and watch her and her co anchor Bill Graul, in the morning. They just make it fun! 

But if you don't already know she is not in the news lately for her Emmy winning anchoring abilities (which are awesome) but for her taking a stand against a bully email she received about her weight. An email that was sent to her work email. Nope not one word on how she did her job but on the fact that she is overweight! Now I understand that our country is overweight and obese. And I fully know that it is not a healthy lifestyle. People I market healthy, clean products so I KNOW!! But this bullying issue is near and dear to me and I thought it was awful for someone who does not know Jennifer personally to remind her of this fact. Like she said in her on air response to the email, "do you think I don't know this?" And for those of you out there saying well she is overweight, she is due to a thyroid problem that makes it hard for her to lose weight, she is also a triathlete, and a runner. She actually just did the Muddy Run in La Crosse this past weekend. How cool is that! 

We have already had our share of bullying with my daughter and she is only in the 5th grade. And sadly to say 1 of the instances was by a teacher! I was appalled at her (the teacher) behavior! I am by no means saying all or even most teachers are like this, I don't believe they are! But this one was. I say this to tell you to stand up for your children. We are their advocates and if we don't stand up for them no one else will!

If you would like to read more on Jennifer's story you can go HERE. She will also be on Ellen today!! It is pretty cool to me that she had the courage to stand up to her bully and that it is bringing this issue to the nation. Although most of us did know this is a problem its cool that a small town news anchor could bring more attention to it!!

She has received TONS and TONS of emails since about how amazing she is. I think it is sad that instead of lifting our kids we are pushing them to be skinny. I don't want my kids to be skinny I want them to be healthy! I love how Jennifer said it about listening to the bullies. "To all of the children out there who feel lost, who are struggling with your weight, with the color of your skin, your sexual preference, your disability, even the acne on your face, listen to me right now. do not let your self-worth be defined by bullies. Learn from my experience — that the cruel words of one are nothing compared to the shouts of many.”

So hold your kids close and teach them to stand up to the bullies. Teach them to stand up for others who may not be able to stand up for them selves. If we stand together against this bullying behavior I truly believe we can combat this epidemic that is currently plaguing our kids, and even adults. Lets work together to shut the bullies up!!

Have a great Tuesday!

Under my sink

Hey guys I am back for day 2 of our 31 days of getting stuff done!

So today I am going to show you the inside of the cabinet under my sink... please don't judge but it was a bit of a catch all before.

As you can see I just had a foot tub of sorts that was holding everything. I had to take the entire thing out every time I wanted to find something. Talk about a mess and taking forever!!

So this weekend I went to town on organizing this spot.

I LOVE how it came out.

As you can see in the 1st picture I was really only utilizing 1 side of the cabinet. Now I have things separated out. On the left side I got a cheap basket from the Dollar Tree and put the supplies I really only use once in a while. We only use the bottle brush once in a while now because we got a dish washer and this girl is no longer washing all the dishes!!! I LOVE that too!!!! Then in the grey caddy that I picked up at Good Will I put the cleaning supplies that I use in every room. These are most of my Shaklee supplies. I have the spray bottle of all purpose cleaner, the spray bottle of window cleaner and the bottle of Basic H. Then you can see I do also have our dish washer detergent in this one too just cause the spot for it was perfect it just fits right in there and I don't have to worry about knocking something else over this bag is all that goes in that spot. Then there are just some misc little brushes for getting in those nooks and cranny's that a rag just won't do.

Then on the right side I have our garbage bags. The kitchen ones on top because we use those more often and then our big trash bags we put out to the curb. We don't pay for our trash pickup through our property taxes so we pay by the bag. Then in the little tote to the right of that I have all our batteries. This is just for ease of use. I know where all the batteries are and if someone says we don't have any C batteries in here I know there are just none in the house and I need to pick some up. I am not looking all over for where I might have stored them. Then we have some light bulbs on top which by the way we now keep in the basement. And then behind that we have the fire extinguisher. I have never had to use it but just in case I know right where it is and I don't have to fight with a bunch of crap to get it out.

So here is a side by side of the before and after.

Much better huh? I love that I can now find things and everything down there has a spot to be put back and not just being left on the counter until I can put it back. The kids and the hubs know right where it goes now.

Do you organize under your sink?

Have a great Tuesday!!

31 Days

Hi Everyone-

So we are marking today with the 1 day of a new series, we are linking up to the nester's site. Where she is having a linky party of other 31 days blogs. 

So what is our 31 days series going to be about you ask?? Well in short its going to be 31 posts!! If you are subscribed to this blog you have probably noticed that my posts are here and there. Some weeks we post all the time and other weeks well, yeah we don't. But it is I think lack of habit and lack of discipline frankly! So for the next 31 days you will see me every day! (I hope you are still here on day 31! :) ) If you are not a subscriber please subscribe now and follow along with us. But I have a goal this next month and its to get a LOT of stuff done around my house so hopefully that will give us a few great posts and the others we will fill in with what else has been going on in our crazy lives! 

So please come along on this ride with me!
