My new obsession

This is my new obsession...Special K Cracker Chips in Sour Cream and Onion.  They are so light and fluffy that you can eat a dozen and not feel like you have a rock in your stomach.  I was pleasantly surprised by the great taste as well.  Check them out.

14,000 viewer

Well, I'm approaching my 14,000th viewer to my blog and to celebrate, I am giving away one of my handmade notebooks to the person that actually comments on this post (my mother doesn't count). 

I post so many things on my blog and no one ever comments on the things I post. So, this is your chance. :)

**JUST MAKE SURE YOU PUT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN THE COMMENT SO I CAN EMAIL YOU TO FIND OUT WHERE TO SEND YOUR NOTEBOOK**

Vicks Shower Disks

I don't know about you guys, but when I'm not feeling well, I always enjoyed the Vicks disks that you would stick in the shower and it would release vapors and open up your sinuses. Well, I haven't seen them in the store for a long time and today I was pleasantly surprised when I came across a make your own recipe on pinterest.com.
Here is the link to the actual page where this came from

Sarah's Homemade Vicks Shower Disk Thingies
-Baking soda
-Water
-Essential oils: eucalyptus, rosemary, and lavender.
-Muffin tin
-Muffin liners
1) Add baking soda to a mixing bowl. Updated to add - I don't really measure. Maybe 2-3 cups?

2) Slowly add water until you've made a thick paste. Updated to add: add just a little water a time. You'll want the mix to feel like putty.

3) Add 15 drops of each essential oil.

4) Spoon in to a muffin tin, and let sit out for 12-18 hours. You can also bake these, but I just left them out overnight.

5) Pop these suckers out of the paper liner, plop it in your shower, and let the essential oils steam away your stuffy nose. Edited to add: put them anywhere on the floor of the shower; it doesn't matter where!
I can't wait to try these on my own.

Check out my crafts. They make a great gift!!!
