Kids Pretend Carnival

I love to help foster my kids imagination. Here is where they wanted to set up a pretend carnival. They were so funny with setting it up, they set up stations that included facepainting and tattoos. The were such entrepreneurs, they went around the neighborhood collected kids and had a blast.

Semi homemade donuts

The best and easiest donuts! All you need is canned biscuits, oil, and powdered sugar. Deep fry the biscuits in the oil and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Voila your done. To make sprinkled donuts add water and karo syrup ( syrup is not really needed I just like the thickness and makes the icing shiny) to the powdered sugar. Dip donut in icing then in sprinkles and voila you have semi homemade warm delicious donut. The kids absolutely love them.

Leopard nails

Being a stay at home mom you have to cut back on certain things. Sally's is my best friend when it comes to still being the girly girl that I am. My favorite all time product is ASP Aspire nail products. It is an acrylic that does not dry right away. You can mold it to your nail and shape it.

At the nail salon they charge around $60 for this technique. You are probably familiar with the term pink and white nails. The acrylics come in all kinds of colors. I personally like to use clear so I can have fun with paint. These nails were done with the clear acrylic. I painted them with the products below.
