I forgot to post a blog yesterday. Our snuggle bag...which is a huge 5' in diameter bag filled with foam needed to be cleaning. It is a major project in itself :-/ Now...on to the good stuff!

I made some quick and dirty "stir fry" yesterday, and it was pretty good, but not really stir fry by definition.

3 Packs Ramen without the seasoning
1/2 bag of frozen veggies
3 oz. stir fry sauce

Boil ramen according to directions (3 min.) Throw in veggies until it boils again. Drain, and add stir fry sauce. This recipe only takes about 15 mins to make, the longest part is waiting for the water to boil.

I also found a henna kit I had purchased a couple months ago...so I went to work! I bought it at Michael's, but I'm not sure I would recommend getting the same one. The henna dyed my skin fairly well, but it did not make a lot. Not really worth the $15 they sell it for (I got mine half price because they had a special going on). You can probably get henna at a health food store. Anyways, I tried to be technical about it and copy the designs they suggested on the paper, but quickly gave up and made my own designs.

I found a cute pattern for roses too. These are so easy to make and they can go anywhere! You can put them on clothes, make a pin out of them, put them on a headband, just for home decor....the list goes on.


This is a really bad picture and sad to say it was the best one out of 10. After that many, I figured it just wasn't meant to be. Believe it or not this is actually a red rose, not orange like it looks. Not sure what I'm going to do with it, but I may try to put a stem on it to see how it goes. Although I could make it into a pin so it could be more versatile.


  1. I have been thinking of filling in my tattoo, but can't decide on a color. Maybe I should try henna.

  2. Henna, as far as I know, is just to stain your skin, and it fades with time. I'm not sure if there are similar colors to fill in a tattoo, but I'm pretty sure that you can't use henna under the skin like you would regular ink for a tattoo.
