I made this tutorial specially for some fellow LDSers that are preparing to go on a trek this summer. For those of you that don’t know, what we Mormons call a “trek” is a reenactment of the early Mormon pioneers. They came across the country with wagons. Some of them were lucky enough to have wagons that were pulled by oxen, but there were many who...

Once again, I am so glad that I started this challenge. My husband found a “reduction of force” card in his pay check yesterday. Basically it means that he was laid off. The production on the building he is working on is at a stand still because of some parts that are back ordered, so they have no work to do, sooooo they laid some people off. Thankfully,...

I just finished my first ever quilt. It is a gift for my sister in law, who is expecting a baby any day now. I found this pattern here from Curly Top Quilts. It was designed by Curly Top Quilts and the pattern is for sale on her etsy shop for just $3. Check out her blog here.  The pattern was simple and easy to read and I think it was a perfect first quilt. The pattern...

In honor of Easter, I thought I would make this neat little recipe. I had it once before when the Sunday School teacher at my old church brought them in for an Easter lesson. They taste sort of like cinnamon rolls, but they have a twist that makes them perfect for an Easter dinner: they are hollow on the inside, just like Christ’s tomb was on Easter morning. Neat,...

Because I can only write about saving money so much, I have enlisted the help of a few other bloggers during this cash-only March month. Today’s...

Before you start reading, you should click here to follow my blog. Because it’s cool, right?  It’s funny how the Lord works, right? They say he works in mysterious ways. This month, I’ve been able to see that. Here I am, planning out this month so that we can save as much money as possible to be able to buy a car. I have all these great plans, and I...

In my quest to come up with some good activities for my almost two year old, I came across an idea from Play, Create, Explore. This activity was easy to prepare and my little guy loved it. It kept him occupied for about 25 minutes, which is house in toddler time. So, what I did was save egg shells from breakfast (we had omelets). I boiled the egg shells and cleaned out...

I have never made clam chowder before… I’m pretty sure that I’ve only eaten it once. But, awhile ago, my husband bought a few cans of clams and asked me if I’d make it. That was like… a year ago. So, I decided it was time to finally try it out. I looked at a LOT of different recipes and decided to kind of do my own thing. It was pretty easy,...

Well, I made it through the weekend with out using any plastic (from my wallet that is). I have to say that it’s hard. I am so used to whipping out those cards whenever I reach the front of the lines without really thinking much about how much I’m spending. It is really nice to not have that “I spent too much” guilty feeling at the end of the...
