Viva Las Vegas!

At the M&M Factory in Las Vegas!

Any color M&M you could ever want, or think of!

Bellagio Fountains!

The beautiful Las Vegas Temple!

Taylor and I were able to sneak off to Vegas for a quick weekend trip! We stayed with some of his Dad's cousins that live in North Las Vegas! We had a blast!

Cabin Adventures!

After a 12 hour drive, and spending 2 nights in Vancouver, Taylor and I were able to watch his Nephew and 2 of his nieces for a night in Olympia and then go to his family cabin with some of his family this week! We had a blast! We went Jet skiing, kayaking, hiking, went on walks through the forest, hiked to the "Wild man of the Wynchoee" campsite, taught his niece and nephew how to kneeboard, and got to spend time with his family! It was the perfect week!

Super Suds and Super $avings!

Recently I have become infatuated with Pintrest. In my spare time I love getting craft ideas that I can do at home and actually doing them. Recently I found a recipe for homemade laundry detergent, with 3 basic ingredients.
Borax, Super Washing Soda, and Fels Naphtha laundry soap. It's 1 cup of Borax, 1 cup of Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda, and 1 bar of grated Fels Naphtha Soap (usually around $1, and I used a cheese grater) and theres a bath of laundry soap. It doesn't look like a ton but it smells so clean and fresh and one batch of homemade laundry detergent is about 40 loads of laundry, talk about getting your money's worth. It's 1 tablespoon per load. I took this picture from Pintrest but this about how much a batch makes.

One box of borax and one box of Super Washing Soda makes about 5 batches of homemade laundry detergent so you definitely get a run for your money!
