Sometimes General Conference sneaks right up on me. But other times, it can’t come soon enough, and I’m counting down the days. I especially feel that way this year. Can we just have Conference every month?? Not only do I love the peace & direction filled messages from a prophet of God and His apostles, […]
I’m sure you can relate to the experience of falling head-over-heels for a certain menu item at a restaurant and WISHING you had the recipe. That’s exactly what happened to me. The minute I tried this hot spinach artichoke dip with pepper jack cheese at a local restaurant, I knew I needed it as a […]
So, I’ve shared our little Valentine’s tradition with you a while back, here on OSSS and also on Make and Takes. It’s just something simple that I came up with because I was still pooped from Christmas and didn’t feel like the kids needed any more toys. I decided that every Valentine’s Day we would do BOOKS. Yay, for books! But, not just books… a Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt! Even though I told you about it before, I decided it’s okay to bring it up again because THIS TIME I have printable for you… cause guess what?? I just figured out how to make them the other day. Now there’s no stopping me.
Let’s get right to it. Yes, I will totally send you a free Book of Mormon without missionaries and this offer NEVER EXPIRES. There’s absolutely no strings attached. Nobody is going to come knocking at your door. You will not be on the ‘Mormon’ radar. You’re totally safe, my friend. I have sent out over […]
So, here’s a little story. I have this sugar cookie recipe that I really love… they’re soft, chewy, and super addicting. I had a sweet reader try them, liked them, then mentioned that if I love those, I will surely love her Gingersnap Cookie recipe. Just like the sugar cookies, these Gingersnap Cookies are soft, chewy, and so amazing. I’m soooo glad she sent me this recipe! They’re definitely a new go-to.
I had a special request for this post, Indoor Activities for Older Girls, and I loved the idea! It’s so true that a lot of what is found on blogs these days are for younger kids… AND, I just happen to be the mom of 2 girls that would love some ‘older’ activities. Any of these activity ideas would be great for them to do alone, with the help of their mom, grandma, or to do with friends.
The other night, I probably spent a couple hours pinning ideas for involving my kids in General Conference to a designated General Conference Pinterest board. While pinning away, it occurred to me that a big portion of my Pinterest followers probably don’t know what the heck General Conference is, and here their pin stream is being flooded with the ideas I’m saving.
So, what is General Conference? So, let me tell you… in case you’re wondering, in case you’re interested, or in case you’re bored and need something to read…
As a mother of a toddler, it’s not a rare occurrence to hear a request for a real horse or pony. It’s not just a cliche situation, it really happens! A live, large animal will not work for us, for a couple reasons. One, we don’t have the property to raise a horse. Two, it […]
Let me get right to the point… you want these. I want these. We ALL want stuffed mushrooms made with Jimmy Dean sausage. But typically, when I make them, I tell nobody. I devour them all, privately, and enjoy every minute of it! Okay, I lied… I do share, but I regret it, every time. […]
It’s ready! I’ve finally got the Christmas Gifts for Women put together. It’s been weighing on my mind, so this feels good. 😉 This past week, I’ve shared the gift ideas for kids, gifts for teenagers, and upcoming will be the final one, gift ideas for men. I hope you’re getting your Christmas shopping done […]
Alrighty, folks. If you need some ideas for Christmas gifts for teenagers, I got you covered. I have four teenagers of my own, two boys and two girls, and am already done with my Christmas shopping! Amazon wish lists come in real handy. 🙂 As mentioned in yesterday’s post… I probably only have time for […]
It’s been a while since I’ve shared gift ideas with you! With 7 kids of my own, you know I have plenty of ideas… the issue is always TIME. How can I get more of it?!? Needless to say, maybe don’t expect the usual series for two weeks. But, I think I can pump out […]
