4th of July Downloads

Here are some fun downloadable printables on Skip to My Lou. I am going to use some of these for my 4th of July get together!

Fun 4th of July Recipes

I love holidays and I love planning parties. I already have my kids' next birthday parties planned. I found this super fun rainbow jello recipe (although I am thinking of just rotating red, white and blue this time).

Here's the recipe courtesy of Food and Beverage Recipes

7 sm. pkgs. sugar free Jello*
1 (15 oz.) can evaporated skim milk
*(2 lime, 2 lemon, 1 strawberry, 1 orange, 1 raspberry)

1. Mix lime Jello and 1 cup boiling water. Dissolve 15 minutes. Add 1/2 cup cold water. Pour in 9 x 13 inch pan. Set 1 hour.

2. Mix lemon Jello with 1 cup boiling water. Dissolve 15 minutes. Add 1/2 cup evaporated milk. Pour over lime layer. Set 1 hour. Continue in the same manner:
Strawberry and water
Orange and milk
Raspberry and water
Lemon and milk
Lime and water

Note: You will need to make this ahead. It will store for up to 1 week.

Here are a few other fun ones courtesy of Food Network. See Recipes HERE

This Week

This week has not been a good week, well, for me at least. I have been super sick (fever, chills, the works) since Monday night. I have a infection and it has almost completely knocked me out. I haven't been on the computer since my last post. I am hoping I start feeling better soon and can get back to my life (and blog). Please bare with me!

lia sophia

I have been a Jewelry Advisor with lia sophia for over 4 years and a Manager for over 3. It has been such a blessing for me and my family (our only source of income since my husband went back to school). It works great for our family because I work a few nights a week and get to stay home with my kiddos. I work when it fits for us (and can take time off when I need to). I wanted to share this opportunity with you because I know so many people are looking for ways to earn money to get by right now.

lia sophia is the leading national jewelry company and there are less than 100 advisors in Idaho. It's a great company, great quality jewelry (with a lifetime replacement guarantee), and lots of fun. You don't need to be a salesperson (I am soooo not) because the jewelry sells itself. Plus, we have amazing deals each month (where customers get their highest priced item 50% off!)

The Starter Kit comes with over $1000 worth of jewelry + a kit bag, table cloth, catalogs, ring sizer, etc. The kit is normally $149 (which is an awesome deal) but until June 27th it's on sale for $124. That's 90% off retail.

With a $600 Starter Show June 28th-July 30th you get $150 Jewelry Certificate to get more jewelry! Plus as the hostess you would have earned at least $120 in Free Jewelry. I only have a few dates left in July so let me know if you are interested ASAP. I am more than happy to answer any questions (without any obligation).

30 Day Trial Plan: Do just 5 shows and see how it goes. With 3 shows and $1500 in sales you get a $200 Jewelry Certificate (and can earn 2 more). Earn 30% commission and get paid weekly. After 30 days, if it isn't working for you, then quit. You will get to keep all the jewelry and will have earned at least $450. After that there are no quotas to fill. Just submit one show (minimum $250 in orders) per quarter to stay active.

You can visit my website HERE.

Today's Deal

Get $10 worth of food for as low as $5.
My fave is the Urban Cowboy sandwich which has BBQ sauce (I totally craved BBQ sauce when I was pregnant). Get yours HERE.

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, just been super busy taking care of my sweet new baby boy! He had jaundice so we were in the hospital for four days, which has thrown me off a bit. I am going to take today and tomorrow to catch up on everything (sleep being the main thing). I plan on being back up and running Wednesday with the Albertsons deals. I have to add that the wonderful thing about couponing is that I have a stocked pantry. Although I was half-tempted to flee the hospital to use my doublers on Tuesday, there are always more great deals right around the corner!

Here's a little sneak peak of baby Bryce:

See you Wednesday!
XOXO, Kerstin
