DIY Temple Block set KIT now available!

I have had so many requests for this, that I have listed a DIY kit to make it in my etsy shop for a limited time. So now's your chance to get your hands on it. Great gift for anyone from toddlers to adults! We love it at our house. In fact, I recently used four sets together, to build a large temple with the kids in our church primary this past month with a lesson. So fun!

To get the kit and see the details, you can find it available through July (or possibly August) in my etsy shop here:

AND...BTW (The Angel Moroni that comes with the kit is also a little different than the one shown in the pic bc that one was not for sale by the designer. The new one that you will receive is still an obvious Angel Moroni though. I will be updating this picture with the accurate one soon.)

Thanks again for all the love!

Best Banana Ice Cream EVER!

I don't know about you, but at my house, ice cream is a favorite! So I was excited to figure out how easy and nutritious this banana ice cream is! All you need is bananas and a tad of almond milk (or any other milk you prefer).

I started out cutting some ripe bananas into chunks and freezing them.

Then I threw them in my Ninja. (Any food processor or blender should also work. I also included in this pic some of our other options we added...PB powder and even threw in some chocolate chips for one of my kids.)

I mixed the bananas for just a bit...a minute maybe? and they looked like this:

 I mixed them another 30 seconds and added about 1-2 Tablespoons of almond milk and mixed another 30 seconds to a minute. And wala! There you have it! That's all you need! It then was thick and creamy and looked like this:

Even when I held it up upside down, it didn't fall out. You can see how thick it was!

Someone was happy at our house! :)


It's a great summer snack and so easy and even good for you! Give it a try!

Patriotic Yard Art

I have a special place in my heart for all military members and their families, after having had my husband (and therefor our kids and our family too bc it affects everyone!) serve for years including deployments and activations. So this year for some patriotic decor, I wanted to include something symbolizing what they all do for all of us and our country and why. Came up with this. Fun little metal sign in my yard now. :)

ORANGE you glad it's summer gift


This is what we gave most of our kids' teachers as an end of the year gift this week. Doesn't it just scream summer?! :) We filled the bottom with citrus drink packets, monogrammed each cup and for the male teachers, gave a bag of orange yogurt dipped pretzels and a large juicy orange with the same tag. So much fun!!! :)
