Morning Calm

So mornings here in the mountains makes for aome great views. Though I was unable to get the picture I wanted this is still pretty. When I am off taking the kids to school I come to a clearning the looks out over the river in front of the mountains. One mountain is pretty high so the fog covers all but the tip sticks out. It is a breath taking view to see and absourb all that mother nature has given us. These mountains are what makes this home for me, no other place can compare.

Envelope Budgeting?

The envelope budge system is a great way to keep track of your money and help you get connected with where your money is going.  Found this cool free printable to make your  own.

I think if you like this system you will love the template that is provided here.  If you do not use this system maybe you should try it out.

Riding Fresh-Heeleys

So I order these new "rad" kicks a few weeks ago.



I am a young woman made feel old.  We never had this type of thing when I was a kid.  So I was very excited to get the new latest fad for myself.  I pop open the box and pull out the new kicks.  I was really excited to see that there is a stopper in place of the wheels so I could actually wear this other than skate shoes.  So I decided the best thing to do it wear them a couple of days and break them in.  They were actually a very comfortable shoe!  OK so next step was trying to "heel".  Wow was this a challenge, not going to lie I was scared out of my mind.  In the end I was able to make some small rolls with out tripping.  I was glad that there is a tutorial on Heeling.  I suggest you check that out before your first attempt.  After my fun with them I passed them over to my nephew to show me how it was done.  That kid went flying off with them (sadly he has the same size shoe as me at the age of 8).  I would highly recommend these to all our mothers and fathers that have some hip kids that need some fun!  It is far better than being "grandma on wheels" but the neighborhood kids did think I was a pretty cool mom for even putting them on.  Two thumbs up from this mama!


*I received my new kicks in exchange for my honest opinion on them!*

Fix that mustache!

I know we as women do not want people to know we have a mustache. You can wax it or even try to Nair it, both can be painful. To bleach the hair on your upper lip, mix 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide ( 6 percent) with 1 teaspoon of ammonia. Dip a cotton ball into the solution, and dab it onto the hair. Let it sit for 30 minutes, then rinse off with cool water.
