yummy!…it’s all good

I do like changing my header depending on what is happening in our home.  Of late, I am into trying new recipes, especially breakfast and snack recipes.  My latest recipe to try was baked donuts.  Yeah,  not deep fried but baked,  you feel no guilt eating them. So, the picture  I have in my header are the baked donuts.  They obviously do not look like the pics in the blog where I got the recipe, but they do taste good.  I do not have a donut or cookie cutter, so I was using drinking glasses to cut out the donuts, and it was becoming too much work so I decided, who said that donuts have to have donut holes, so I decided just to make the rest look like rolls.  After baking them, you are to toss them in melted butter and cinammon sugar, I think the next time I make them, I am leaving them plain and spreading strawberry jam on them instead.  Enjoy! Just in case you missed it, here is the recipe again.   Bake, make, do, indulge in, read or try something good for yourself this weekend 🙂

BPA free at last?

I have been staying indoors all week saving my gas for today, wanted to go and see what is out there tax free that I might ‘need’, after all, we get our checks next week, so I think I have some money to spend. I decided to look and see if I could find any BPA free bottles and then I would decide if I was to buy. Target did not have any…well, they had some Medela ones, but they are too small and will not help me. and Walmart, because they are Walmart and they can make it happen, they had BPA free Parents Choice brand, 2.96 for 3 bottles. so I got them for Henry, hope he likes them and I hope they do not leak. every time something new comes up, I wonder how I grew up with all this bad stuff for you now and survived? seriously, I grew up where no one really cared about all this stuff. is it the fear, that makes us sick? is it all in the mind?  I am just wondering…


There is just something so sweet, peaceful about a baby sleeping.
1. they look so cute
2. it is quiet
3. you can get a lot done (when you are done watching them sleep)
4. it is good for them and you
5.they have a peaceful look on their face
6. they look so cute

Where there is faith
There is a voice calling, keep walking
You’re not alone in this world
Where there is faith
There is a peace like a child sleeping
Hope everlasting in He who is able to
Bear every burden, to heal every hurt in my heart
It is a wonderful, powerful place
Where there is faith BY 4HIM


I am in a dilemma, two in one…a U.S. government report released last week said that  there is “some concern” about BPA stemming from experiments on rats. Researchers linked the chemical to neurological and behavioral problems along with some cancers.  okay.  ALL  my baby bottles are NOT BPA free.  It is recommended that you buy BPA free bottles which are more expensive…should I throw away all my bottles?  Henry will soon need to be using bottles to take his breast milk since I am almost returning to work.  It is as if he heard about BPA.  He will not drink milk from the bottle.  At first I thought he did not like formula, but he refused the breast milk too.   He does not want anything to do with a bottle…I am in a big dilemma.  I guess I am going to dump my bottles for these.

Did you get your free reusable bag from Walmart?  I have been using my basket that my grandma gave me, hope you are having a nice earth day and you are going to try and do one thing that is earth friendly. 🙂

consignment sale vs yard sale?

I got my check in the mail from the All About Kids consignment sale.   This is how it works, you tag and take your stuff to them, they sell it for you, keep 30% of what you make, and deduct $5 for advertising costs. I sold almost 3/4 of what I put in there which was basically girls and maternity clothes so I was glad that I sold it. But I wonder, which one brings in more money? Having a yard sale and sitting in our almost no traffic street, waiting and hoping that someone will pass by and buy, and of course, you have to price them for less. I guess a yard sale all depends on where you live. For me, I think the consignment sale works better, and of course, if you do not sell, you can always give away your stuff.  Goodys is giving a 30% off coupon for every gently used clothing you donate through them for charity.  You can only get 3 coupons per visit.  I think it is a great idea, so, maybe it is time to get rid of those items that have been in your closet forever.

Better or Worse?

Henry is a better sleeper (at night) than Rehema at all fronts. You just need to put him in bed when he is drowsy and he will sleep for 6 to 9 hours depending on how the day went for him. The day part is my problem. He is now staying awake more during the day and will sleep like 30 minutes at a time. If I hold him, he will sleep longer but as soon as I lay him in his crib, he wakes up. I love uninterrupted sleep at night, but I also need to get stuff done during the day. I am not sure which one I prefer 🙂
I know that Walmart has a limit of the number of times you can return stuff without a receipt. I am not sure how many times, but I have a feeling I have reached it. I was there to exchange walmart brand diapers for a bigger size and I think the guy infront of me had reached his limit. Walmart refused to take his two bottles of chocolate syrup!! Can you believe that? Even walmart has standards. The guy was so mad he threw the bottles at the wall, said some colorful words and left! well, they let me exchange my 4 packets of diapers.

Noah’s Little Ark

It seems like the kids in Rehema’s class have their birthdays between February and April.  We have taken Rehema to some of the birthday parties and they have been so much fun for her.  The last one was interesting, the invitation said come party with the animals, but the address did not lead you to the zoo. So, we decided to go party with the animals and ended up in someones backyard.  What it was, for a reasonable price, the animals come to your backyard.  Noah’s Little Ark  came with a pony, which the kids could ride, chickens, a pig, rabbits, a llama, goats and sheep.  The kids had so much fun.  I think it made for a great birthday party.
