M&M Peanut Butter NO-Bake Cookies

It's in the high 90's here today - there's no way I wanted to turn the oven on but the girls wanted to make some cookies. Here's our alternative!  These super yummy No-Bake Cookies that took less than 20 minutes to make. 

I found a recipe via. Pinterest but wanted to add a little pizazz and really who doesn't like M&M's?! Here's what you'll need:
1/4 Cup Butter
1/2 Cup Milk
2 Cups Sugar 
3 Cups Oatmeal
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
1 tsp. Vanilla
 Add your top three ingredients together in a pan.
 Here is my original recipe I wrote down :)
 You'll want to let the butter, milk and sugar boil - a roaring boil to be exact. I let mine boil for a few minutes while scraping the bottom a few times.
 Remove from heat and add peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal. Mix well.
 Drop by spoon fulls onto wax paper and let cool for 30 seconds before putting M&M's in.

 Don't forget to enjoy them with someone you love!

Hey Mom, What You Need To Know About Working From Home: Week 6

 Welcome back to our 10 weeks of What You Need to Know about Working from Home! So glad your hanging out with me this morning!

Working from home is a chore - but it's also incredibly rewarding! As with an outside of the home job there are ups and downs, excitement and frustration. Is it worth it? 100% YES!

I'm able to say I've never had to put my kids in day-care, never missed out on a school activity, never had to worry about missing out on a day of work because of a sick kid, never had to deal with angry bosses or deadlines.

That brings me to this week's topic: Your WHY!

It's pretty obvious that my WHY is to be present for my kids and be the one behind the camera taking pictures like these, not the receiving end of a text from someone taking care of my kids.

Here are 5 questions to ask yourself when determining your WHY:
1. Why do I want to work from home?
2. What kind of income do I need each month?
3. What will that do for our family?
4. What will I miss out on if I don't set or reach for my goals?
5. What do I want my life to look like in a year from now?

It's time to take action, put pen to paper and determine Your WHY!

Home Made Pink Flamingo Play-Dough

 We made play-dough this past weekend and the girls we're SO excited! I have to say it smells a lot better than the stuff from the store, non-toxic, they can pick the colors of choice and a lot more fun. It also stores well.
 Here is my colorful Lilian helping to make hers.
 First you'll mix all ingredients in a bowl. This step I let all 3 girls participate in.
 Then you heat it on the stove and you'll see that it will start to form a ball.
 Once you have taken the heated play-dough off of the stove and let it cool to the touch, then you can manipulate it.
It also makes a great handmade gift! The girls each made a different color, named the color (we had Pink Flamingo, Bright Sky Blue and Awesome Green). You can customize and print labels at 
Have a great week!

Hey Mom, What You Need to Know About Working From Home: Week 4

Have you ever wondered why some home business professionals are really Extremely successful and others struggle? The past 4 weeks I've been sharing What You Need to Know About Working from Home. These practical tips have helped me to be successfully working from home for several years now. 
When I started my business I wasn't looking for the best make up, best kitchen tool, cutest bag or to do surveys. I was simply looking to make money! I didn't understand the power of being a product of the product. Think of this, if you we're the CEO of a Ford car dealership would you drive a Chevrolet? Of course not! You would want to represent the company you we're a part of. 

5 Way's you Can Be a Product of YOUR Product Starting Today!
1. If your company recommends a particular starter pack, BUY IT! I'm not a fan of buying things that are un-necessary. I work with a company that has everyday necessities and things that help me save money that I use regardless so this was a no-brain-er  for me.
2. Share your testimonies with those who surround you.
3. If you are promoting healthy eating, eat healthy. If your promoting kitchen gadgets, make sure you like to cook. If your promoting skin care products, Educate yourself on skin care products and listen up... Make Sure YOU USE THEM DAILY!
4. Share on social media in a positive way. Most readers don't want to see constant posts saying "Buy my xyz" or "I need 3 hosts by the end of the month". But they are more apt to be a customer/host/business partner if they see positive messages and photos. Here's an example... My industry promotes living debt free and financial freedom, so sharing a photo of a Financial Freedom Award that I have won would speak volumes vs. other tactics.
5. Believe in the company you represent! Having belief in yourself and your company shows. So if you don't have belief - you better gain it, quickly. If you don't believe in it no one else will.

Make it a great Wednesday!
