I would use it for a family portrait.

I would use the photo session for my little girl! I haven't had a professional photo of her since she was 6 months old, because they're so expensive!

I would use it for a family portrait. I realized recently that we have no recent pictures of my husband, son and I together, because one of us is always behind the camera.
Aubrie said…
I can't decide what I would use it for. We need our family pictures done, but my daughter is getting baptized soon so I may get her baptism photos done, or I have a 9 month old baby that I haven't had any professional pictures taken of. So I'm not sure exactly, but I definitely know I would use this! :o)

I would use it for family photos. My last attempt didn't work out - we got rained out at Wheeler Farm a few months back. I'd love to get a great family photo done.

I would get my sons 9th month pictures done. We havent had professional pics taken either because of how expensive they usually are.

I would use this for my childs one year pictures. We have only been able to get his pictures done professionaly twice and they both did not turn out so well. So I am hoping that this will work out and be a better experience with better pictures to have of my last child.

I would use this to get family photos done. The last time we got them done, they didn't turn out well at all. The lighting was awful. We all had shadows on our faces, etc. bad bad.

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)

Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
