Salted Caramel Brownies

Salted caramel brownies = heaven.

For real.

When I had my wisdom teeth pulled a few weeks ago, my diet was very limited. Soft foods only. As much as I love chocolate pudding (and I truly do love it), I started dreaming of the time when I could eat real food. Hamburgers and french fries. Roast beef. Pizza rolls. And brownies.

And when I opened my pantry and saw five leftover chocolate bars from our s’mores party, an idea formed. Brownies with chocolate bars and salted caramel in the middle.

Cub Scout DIY Fidget Spinner

A few weeks ago a friend told me she was going to make some of my fidget spinners with her cub scouts at their den meeting. And I realized it would be so fun if they could make a scouting fidget spinner at their scout meeting! So the cub scout fidget spinner was born. Thank you, Jodi.

But here’s the thing. I am totally lame when it comes to scouts, especially cub scouts. I have three girls and have never actually worked in scouts. Whenever I see my friends doing scouting things, I am very impressed. Because scouts is totally intimidating and I’m secretly glad that I don’t have boys just so I don’t have to do scouts. Sad, I know.

June 2017 Visiting Teaching Printable Handout

I am really loving this June visiting teaching printable handout.

Since I am getting all four of my wisdom teeth pulled tomorrow, I wanted to make sure I had this up and ready for you. Just in case I am down and out for a week. (And just fyi, I am more than a little bit anxious about this dental procedure. I don’t love going to dentist, and getting four teeth pulled is making me super nervous! Too bad I didn’t get it done 20 years ago, but at least I get to eat lots of pudding. And I am excited about the mounds of chocolate pudding I plan on eating.)

DIY Fidget Spinner

Fidget spinners are all the rage right now.

I first learned about them a few weeks ago when we spotted them at a yard sale. They seemed expensive for a plastic triangle and when I asked my girls what they do, they said they spin.

“They spin? That’s it’s?” Yep, that’s it. And my girls told me that everyone had one.

Well, that started my fidget spinner fascination. Once I looked around, I saw that they truly were everywhere.

Even on You Tube, you can find DIY fidget spinners made from dry ice, legos, and water bottle caps. The tutorials I found most helpful for my own fidget spinners were the ones made by RedTedArt and DrawSoCute.

This DIY Fidget Spinner is so fun and easy to make! Get this printable & instructions at www.TepeeGirl.com. You'll have your own DIY fidget spinner in minutes!

My girls have loved my fidget spinner journey.  They have watched me make a least a dozen fidget spinners in the last week. They have taken them to school and have not held back their opinions. Thankfully, they love these finished fidget spinners.

I have tried lots of techniques, but this post shows the best way that I have found to make these quickly and get them to really spin.

Paper Sack Mother’s Day Card and Gift

I love all the cool things that people are doing with paper sacks lately! My amazingly-talented friend Sheena recently made a banner, and a quick pinterest search shows so many cool paper bag crafts.

For years I have loved the Mother’s Day sack card from Simpy Kierste (one of my favorite blogs), but I thought if would be fun to have a combination of card, coloring page, and gift. I want to keep the kiddos busy and coloring pages are perfect for that. Plus, chocolate seems like a necessity on Mother’s Day.
