Red Velvet Holiday Bundt Cake

I needed a dessert for a party last weekend so here's what I made. Red Velvet in a bundt pan, it's from a box but still delicious and everybody loves red velvet, made some cream cheese frosting and just kind of spread it around, then I took a toothpick dipped in red food coloring and made circles all over, did the same with green. Looks a little messy but it worked, I used a fun little holiday platter to make it more festive, all the ingredients cost me about $2.50, much better than stopping at a grocery store on the way and spending $15 or $20 on something premade.

I'm such a laundry loser!

I suck at laundry I won't deny it, yeah it's easy to put loads of laundry in the washer but taking it out of the washer and into to the dryer before it starts to smell (especially if you have a front load washer) is a whole different story and then removing it from the dryer, folding and putting it all away is well let's just say I'm a firm believer in wearing the clothes directly out of the clean laundry basket to avoid all that wasted time and energy spent on folding and putting away!
Needless to say I use vinegar like it's going out of style, so to freshen a load of laundry I just pour some vinegar in the soap or fabric softener reservoir and run a short cycle, I usually use cold to save the energy on hot water (depends on the clothes you are washing). My Husband has learned after many years if his sock drawer is empty, before coming to me, always check the dryer and/or various random laundry baskets, he may hit the jackpot, he may not. If not he needs to approach me in a calm, cheerful manner, he can casually mention it to me but without a hint of expectation in his voice. I will get to it but of course it takes time and it's a process, in the meantime I suggest he have some emergency backups hidden somewhere, what's that saying about being prepared???

Magazine Holder Redo

If you are a Mom of young children I'm sure you have a ton of these around the house, let me explain: Whenever you go to a kids birthday party your child usually gets a little goody bag as a thank you for coming, 9 times out of 10 in the goody bag there is a little deck of cards with characters on it. We probably have 20 of these around and they end up getting mixed up and half of them are lost and it drives me nuts. I found a bag full of random cards and I got the idea to use them to decorate something. I buy these plain cardboard magazine holders from IKEA to keep my stuff organized and to put some of my daughters coloring books and craft books in. I thought it would be kind of fun to use the cards to decorate one of them.

I just glued on cards in a random order and then trimmed them to fit, kinda cute and I would have just thrown the cards away. I was thinking it would be fun to make this for a gift and then include some new coloring books or activity books inside.

Make your own Neti Pot Solution!

Now that it's cold outside we are all probably indoors most of the time and the heat is running constantly, I don't know about you but the dry air wreaks havoc on my sinuses so I'm using my neti pot quite often. Instead of spending money on the refills you can very easily make your own neti pot solution with ingredients you have in your home already. Keep in mind, I am not a doctor so consult your health care provider if you have questions about the safety of this. I did find this link to the Mayo Clinic that you can read about using your own solution. Here's what you need:
8 oz Distilled water, you can boil it but make sure to let it cool down to a warm comfortable temperature.
1/4 Teaspoon salt, preferably kosher, sea salt or non iodized.
1/4 Teaspoon Baking soda, (this is up to you, try it with and without the baking soda to see if it makes a difference for you)
After the water has cooled to a warm comfortable temperature pour it into your neti pot, mix in the salt until it's completely dissolved and add your baking soda (if you want).

Not having Cable can save you even more money at Christmas time!

So here's one of the best unexpected results from cutting cable, obviously you have your monthly savings but if your little ones watch Netflix or DVD's or PBS on local channels they don't see COMMERCIALS. Bigger kids can read and talk to their friends about the latest and greatest toys and gadgets they want for Christmas but little kids don't know what's out there for sale unless they are bombarded with commercials that tell them they need the newest leappad or motorized barbie jeep. My daughter is 5 and sees almost no commericials, she has no idea about every new fun toy and gadget unless a friend has one or we see something shopping. It makes a huge difference, she's not constantly asking me for this toy or that toy, she is happy with most everything she gets even if it's not the newest fad on the market, I could buy something used or from a garage sale and she wouldn't care or notice the difference, and I may buy her some new popular toy but I don't feel like I have to.

Believe me I know this won't last forever, she will begin to read and hang out with her friends more and eventually I won't have as much control of all of the commercialism she is exposed to but for now I'm going to milk it for all it's worth, hopefully I can instill the thinking that you don't constantly need need need everything new and popular to be happy or to feel self worth. Who knows maybe it will work for adults too!!!!!
