I'm Not A Perfect Mom

When I lived in California I had some so called friends, The Perfects, that thought they were better than everyone.

You know the kind, the ones with the perfect children, no matter what they did wrong.  The ones who think their parenting style is the correct one, and everyone else isn't doing it correctly.  The ones that have no problem telling you that you're doing it wrong.

Yeah I had those friends.  They criticized everything.  Not just parenting styles, but what kind of wife I was.  Looking back now, I honestly don't know why I kept them in my life as long as I did.  I've been free of them for over a year, and I can say I haven't missed them at all.

Taking with a friend I grew up with, I have come to the conclusion that we all have one of those parents in our lives.  Sometimes they are closer than others.

College Lacrosse Scrimmages

This weekend my son's high school hosted a 3 team college lacrosse scrimmage.

Warrior has been looking forward to this for weeks.  Not just the chance to watch 3 college teams play lacrosse, FOR FREE.  But during the 2nd game, the team not playing held a clinic for the Varsity and JV teams.

Warrior got to work with 7 goalies and the goalie coach.  He got to ask questions, have them critique his performance, and ask their tips to better certain things.

Its been a long time since I've been able to say this, but I LOVE WHAT I DO!  I can't believe its taken me this long to discover the awesomeness that is Pink Zebra!

What do I love?

The Sprinkles.  SO many to choose from, but because they are in Sprinkle form, you can mix and match the scents to create new ones.

My favorite scent was Just Peachy, until I mixed it with Vanilla Creme.

Even without warming them, they still smell amazing.   I took an unmatched sock and filled it with Stone Washed Denim Sprinkles and tossed it into Warrior's lacrosse bag.  Now his bag smells like clean laundry instead of sweaty teenage boy.

Soaks.  You can also get Pink Zebra Soaks.  They smell just as great and work great for those areas where you don't have a lot of extra room.  Or access to an electrical outlet.  I have a Pink Zebra Go Card hanging in my car.  Sugar Pea and Warrior both took one to hang in their lockers at school.

Pink Zebra also sells Naked Reed (reed diffusers).  These work great in the bathroom, or as a quick room pick me up for the guest room.

Even better with Soaks is starting on Monday, October 26th, you can buy lotion to add the Soaks to!  I've been waiting for this for weeks.

Shades.  Some people are happy with the Simmering Lights just the way they are.  Others, like me, enjoy covering them up with different Shades.  One of my favorite Shades is the the DIY Shade.  Print out a favorite picture and you have a unique Shade!  These make great gifts for the grandparents, or an end of the season gift for the favorite coaches in your life.

There are even manly scents and Shades.

What's your favorite Shade?  What Sprinkle would you love to try?

Glass Beads + Nail Polish

I love crafts.

So of course I volunteered to come up with some craft ideas for a craft bazaar at church.

I needed to come up with something that would be easy for the kids to do.

After scouring Pinterest for ideas.  I found the well known glass bead magnets.

I decided to change it up a little and use some old nail polish I found in a box.

Then I decided to try adding some glitter ones to the mix

Then the kids decided they wanted to make some Donate Life to send to some fellow Donate Life volunteers.  These we plan on making into magnets, push pins, and paperclips.  

What is your favorite Pinterest find craft?
