Pardon the lack of pictures in this post. I wasn't originally intending to post this one so fast but I've had so many requests for these DIY soap melts I wanted to make sure to share in time for those hoping to make some for themselves or family and friends over the holidays. I love making homemade gifts for my family and friends and these turned out to be one of my favorites this year. Whether we like it or not seasonal colds are bound to hit at least one person in the family this year. No one likes to be sick so anything that can be done to help ease symptoms is a plus! I scoured the internet looking at recipes for shower melts and found that a lot of people had trouble with the traditional melt made from corn starch, baking soda, and other powders. I already had soap base on hand so I decided to skip the powders and create my own fragrant, comforting, sinus-opening melts to use in the shower or bath. With just a few supplies and ingredients, you can make your own soap melts!

I absolutely love Thanksgiving! I love the family and friends gathered around the table. I love the laughter and how we all take time to remember how we've been blessed this past year. I also love the food! There's nothing quite as comforting as a Thanksgiving meal. The weather got cold here in West Virginia over the past week and suddenly I found myself wanting to give my family some early Thanksgiving enjoyment. Voila! My Turkey and Harvest Dumplings recipe was born. This recipe is a great way to use up that left over Turkey from the holidays, or you can simply use a 3lb Turkey Boneless Turkey Breast for this recipe. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Learning and discovery are missing in so many toys these days. Though there are plenty of great products with new technology, many of them still require kids to be connected to electronic and screen devices in order to use them effectively. I love products that help my kids explore the world around them and encourage hands-on learning. The Rock Hound's Backpack Kit is perfect for the little geologist in your family and will unlock an even greater desire to dig deeper into discoveries just outside their own front door!

As my at-home-chef skills have grown over the years, so has my desire to invest in quality products to help me bring all of my tasty creations to life. It's much more fun to cook when you have all the proper tools. Food also tastes better when you are cooking with pans that hold the proper temperature and don't taint the dish with those nasty non-stick chemicals. I've made it my personal mission to begin replacing all of my generic non-stick pans with cast iron. In my search for the best, I stumbled upon Stargazer Cast Iron. Boy and I glad I did!

Whether you like it or not, Christas is on the way! While I hate the cold, windy months, I love the wonder of Christmas and the excitement my kids have during the holiday season. Our family has lots of Christmas traditions; the tree, Christmas cookies, family parties, and always, always movie nights to enjoy all our favorite Christmas flicks! We each have our favorites, but How The Grinch Stole Christmas has always been my son, Elijah's number one pick. I can't wait to enjoy this new Ultimate Edition with our family this year!
