Friday Find

Such a great morning...for some scrumptious homemade lemon and peach oatmeal with toast, watching my little ones play (very nicely actually--so far), and entering in as many giveaways as I can squeeze in this morning before my kids notice I'm momentarily checked out.

I never win, but here's to the lucky winna!  

I actually find myself to be very lucky this week because I have gotten to just chill out with my little homie Gs ALL-week-long.  Thank goodness for spring break.  We didn't go anywhere, but I did manage to deep clean my kitchen floor which made the whole rainy week of not doing really anything totally worth it.

One thing that I did do, ok two things this week--because of the sickness that's been going on in my family are

  •  made some diaper cream for my little lovies face which broke out in eczema over her poor little face from a bad milk reaction (never buying milk from there anymore...) and
  • making some lovely little sore throat lollies, which I made out of star candy molds

I subscribe to thewifelifeblog and I love there tutes on everything from makeup to natural home remedies 

Lately Jess, my newest essential oil BFF has posted these helpful vids on BeesWax Diaper Cream and Honey Lemon Lollies which are perfect for my family needs right now!

This recipe I made last night for my hubby (who's been working like a dog this week...well more so than usual), who's been sick with a nasty sore throat, and the flu.  I made him take this cute little jar filled with these little suckies to help soothe his throat to take to work.. I'll do an update on how they performed :)

The only thing I did different than in the YouTube vid is I used a plastic mold (like them) but slathered it with coconut oil so I wouldn't have a hard time getting them out of the mold and I also stuck them in the freezer for a bit which helped them pop right out.  Awesome right?  Perfect for this time of year when we still have that sicky-ness floating around just waiting for the sun to come out and say-IT'S FINALLY SUMMER!

Surely can't wait for that day... I've been getting tired of being cooped up in my house staring at all my house chores that don't want to go away.  

Should do something about that before I have to go back to "normalcy" next week...

Until next time!!

Much love,
