How to Attach Girl Scout Badges to your Vests and Sashes

We have three Girl Scouts at our house this year! A Daisy, Brownie and a Junior. To make it even more exciting I'm our troop Leader and our group has nearly doubled in size this year - pretty fantastic for a small little town. 

I was attaching badges to my girls' vest and sashes and had several Mom's ask what to do.
 Perfect time for a little tutorial! 
For our troop all of our badges (excluding the fun patches) we're Iron On and made this task less daunting.
 Step 1-
Start by letting your iron heat up for a few minutes, then iron the front of the vest to get rid of wrinkles as well as warm up the fabric providing a nice place for adhesion.
 Step 2 -
Set the patches on in the place that you desire. I found that it was much easier to do one patch at a time vs. a couple. It provides better adhesion and attachment.
 Step 3 -
Place a paper town over the patch as a barrier between the patch and the iron.
 Step 4 - 
Iron the patch on. It's best to keep heat on the patch for 30-40 seconds before removing the iron.
 Step 5 -
Turn the vest inside out and iron the back side of the garment where the patch sits.
 And your patch should be on! Pretty simple. 
Here's to a great Scout year!

Monday's Motivation

Welcome back! I love getting motivated each Monday for the week ahead of me. This week my motivation ties into our kitchen and how we feed our bodies.

Our garden is in full flourish right now and I have to say when fresh fruit's and veggies are in front of our family we eat more of them, feel better and have more energy. It's amazing how you can be so inspired as you watch produce grow in front of you. Here's some Advice from a Garden that will give you some Monday Motivation!

Did you know, it takes 21 days. 21 day's of healthy eating and working out to establish a habit. So let's fill our plates with healthy, rich, colorful food for our families.

Organized Play

 One of my goal's for 2015 was to create a more organized home to create more room for joy and peace rather than anxiety and worry over clutter or where things are. I started the year off with our Command Center.  With the girls back school it's coming in very useful. 

1 Corinthians's 14:40 says this... But all things should be done decently and in order. 
That verse has been a great reminder to me in our home, car, business, shopping and family.
This little monkey of mine is almost 3! So hard to believe. With that being said we're acquiring more and more little animals and tractors in our home. And nothing hurts more than stepping on a little lamb or cow in the middle of the night! So I found a solution!
I picked up this metal pan at a local store for $6.00s. The toys are now visible but organized and in place. 
 Our little man has done a great job of keeping them in there spot too.
 It's amazing how it's taken 4 kids for me to find that this method really does work for our home and toys.

 For our big girls I have a bucket of Jenga blocks on the table, it's amazing how they interact, create and play with each other when the tools are right in front of them. 
Here's to creating an Organized home... One spot at a time!

BEST Morning Muffins

 School is back in session here. That means early morning's, homework, a set schedule and bedtime at 7:30. One of my FAVORITE (as well as our families go to) recipe was given to me by my sister in law. These muffin's are so very yummy! You can even mix up the dry ingredients ahead of time, keep in a jar and mix the wet ingredients when your ready to use for simplicity. 
 Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins
Ingredients: 
 1/2 C. Butter
3/4 C. Brown Sugar
3 Ripe Bananas 
2 C. Flour
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
3/4 C. Sugar
2 Eggs
3 tsp. Vanilla
2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 C. Chocolate Chips


 I mix all of the ingredients together with my electric mixer. I then spoon them into a greased muffin tin (makes 24). Make at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Enjoy!

Monday's Motivation

  
It's Monday again! And time to "Breath" in the motivation! 

Have you ever used essential oils? Our family has been learning more and more about them and using them daily. If your new to oils (or even if you have used many) I found this article helpful to me as far as the Essential Oils Industry is concerned and a reputable place to buy my oils without costing a fortune. I would recommend reading HERE before going any further. 
3 Essential Oils that will Motivate You:
Lemon: Provides Energy and Detox
Peppermint: Curbs Appetite 
Grapefruit: Boosts Metabolism 

These oils can be defused in your home or you can apply them to your body safely by themselves or with a carrier oil.
