Fashion Friday: The MOST Important Fashion Accessory

Seriously, there is one fashion accessory you can not--I repeat  CAN NOT--do without regardless of what it costs you.

The good news is it doesn't cost much, one size fits all, and you can find it anywhere (provided you have a good attitude).

So what is the most important accessory?

Your smile, of course.

I know sometimes it can be hard to find your smile. So read through these and get a good grin going.

Smiling yet? Good. Then no matter what you are wearing, you've got the best thing on!

Things I Love: This DYAC

Homonyms.  Homophones.  Words that sound the same but are spelled differently.  Words that are spelled the same but mean different things.

He rose and handed her a rose.

Hey, did you give the horse some hay?

To grammar and usage fanatics, misusing these words can drive us crazy.  For me it's particularly bad with your/you're and there/they're/their.

Yes, these words can be confusing but c'mon folks, we are smarter than your average primate so let's use words correctly!

Days of Play {Summer Dreamin'}: S'more Solar Oven

Family Fun magazine has such great ideas that I almost want to get a subscription. Except, when I get magazine subscriptions I never read them because I can find what I want to find a lot easier by getting on the internet. So I get a build up of barely ever read magazine that I feel guilty recycling. So even though I love, love, love some of the ideas in Family Fun, I probably won't be subscribing.

Now that I've covered the topic of magazine subscription, I'll move on. S'more Solar Ovens. Yes, you heard me. Family Fun crafted a way to make a solar oven out of a pizza box, some aluminum foil, and s'more fixins.

I stole this photo from Family Fun.  Find it here.

The truth is, I probably won't be making this today because I live in WY and spring weather doesn't like to cooperate for fun crafts like this. But once June settles in, you can bet your biscuits I'll be trying this fun science/food activity with my kids!

If you want to try, please CLICK HERE to go to the Family Fun website for instructions.

Music Monday: Of Monsters and Men

Of Monsters and Men is an Icelandic Indie folk/pop band.  Honestly, in terms of bands, this is a baby band that is meeting pretty huge success.

The first time I heard their song Little Talks I was convinced that Florence and the Machine had teamed up with Mumford and Sons to create some serious aweseomeness.  I was wrong about the singers but not about the awesomeness.

Little Talks (so hot right now!)
