    DIY Western Theme T Shirt

    Good Morning World …. While surfing today I found this inspiring little t shirt idea made by Oma and Opa from  Grandparentsplus.com here is their link  Cute Horse Inspired T Shirt Ideas I am lovin the idea! They used a Wyoming steamboat stencil as a pattern one of my personal favorites. I would also probably use some rodeo stencils and barrel racing along with track racing horses ! The next time I race I am going to use this idea for our “racing theme” t shirts it’s always fun to go to Indiana Downs and know what horse is associated with the people. Oma and Opa Cut out some freezer paper…

    Almost but not quite Grandma’s Popcorn Balls

    I just love Grandma’s Pop Corn Balls although I have seen this recipe on many other sites this is the recipe Grandma Afton uses………tried and true….Rookie Cookers use caution!lol Making “Grandma’s Popcorn Balls” is not for the faint of heart. Since I am no “Betty Crocker” or “Martha” I had issues I popped my pop corn in a pot on the stove which I think there is an art to just popping the corn. I only burned a little bit ….not to bad…. Then I started on the caramel 1. make sure your pot is large enough …. lesson learned mine boiled over a smite bit..okay all over the stove……

    Inspiring Ideas For Our Bedroom- Lighting

    Oh my dear its the middle of the night and I have decided to look on Pinterest for inspiring ideas for our bedroom. I am getting pretty excited about this room redo as we have been in our home for around five years and it is time for some sort of update around here. I have chosen our master bedroom first. I believe the bedroom should be a comfortable “safe haven” a place to just hide from the world, relax, and enjoy. Okay so I am stretching it a bit I just want a luxurious place to lay my head next to my hubby and just go Ahhh. I have…

    Where my mind has wondered today … Dehydrating Eggs 

    Why my mind has wondered there who knows …. Actually a family member was talking about how other family members are “preppers” we all have our own beliefs and various reasons for doing things the way we do. Every once in a while I wonder where my children get their sense of imagination and investigation from. (Squirrel) They make me look twice some days and other days, I just chalk it up to they are our children and they get it honestly. I remember as a child my father would subscribe to “The Mother Earth News” magazine and it always intrigued me, I never did do any of the  experiments…

    Advocare Spark Energy Drink for the Equestrain

    I must give credit where credit is due… lol Thank you Bekah Callaway Advocare Rep for turning me onto this. I enjoy a good energy drink from time to time! My choice Advocare Spark at the moment my fave flavor is mandarin orange, although I do enjoy their other flavors also and I have only had their “energy shots” once on a solo trip (I had my mighty side kick Brave with me) to get my horse from the trainer at Fairmount Park Illinois, let me tell you that is really good stuff!!!!! I believe it helped me stay alert on the long haul…. More on Advocare coming soon.
