DIY Foaming Hand Soap

I don't know about you, but I prefer foaming handsoap over regular. I don't know, there's just something about it.  I really like Bath & Body Works, but it can be pretty pricey if you don't hit the sales. A while ago I saw a diy project for making your own foaming handsoap. I love it! It may not smell as *pretty* as B&BW but it's much easier on the wallet. As you can see from the picture, I used peppermint soap, but you could also use a more neutral smelling soap and add essential oils if you wanted to give it more of a girly smell.

All you do is add 1/4 cup of soap to your container, fill it up the rest of the way with water, give it a shake and you just made your very own foaming hand soap! :)

Fall Is Upon Us

It has been for several weeks now actually. Most of you probably know how much I love fall! One of my favorite things about the season are all of the vibrant colors. God sure knows what He's doing when it comes to surrounding us with beauty. Actually, He knows what He's doing in everything. Period. End of story.

The kids and I were able to spend some time outside today. We decided to take a little stroll around the house, and were greeted by fall beauty everywhere we looked!

Pin Happy

For any of you on Pinterest, you know how easy it is to pin things but never get around to actually making the recipe, doing the craft or project, etc.  I've decided to try and make an effort to put action to my pins. :)

Here's a few to get us started!

This past summer when Selma was with us we decided to try some different face masks.
Here we are trying this mask. I'm not really sure what it did for our skin after only one or two uses, but it smelled wonderful! It was like putting pie on your face. :) My only complaint was that the warmth of your face makes the honey melt so it was constantly dripping.

We also tried this peel off mask...ouch! I do not recommend putting it over your entire face, it's true to it's claim to be like pore strips. So, for putting on problem areas it's great...your whole face, not so much!

This crockpot spinach tortellini soup had good flavor, but we found it to be lacking. It wasn't as hearty as it looks in the picture. We also made the mistake of using frozen tortellini instead of dry, so the pasta was overcooked.

I had the urge to make a breakfast cake this morning, and I found this! It was very yummy! Next time I think I'll only make half of the struesel because there was alot and it almost seemed to keep the center of the cake from baking properly.
I started off with a helper, but he didn't stick around very long. :)

Have you tried any of these? What were your thoughts?
