brassyapple Friday night plans got rained out so hubs started a fire in the rainy weather. Best part of having a large covered back patio is using it any time of day or season ;) campfire and snores in the rain = awesome family memories #lastdaysofsummer 16h

brassyapple BRILLIANT! !!! @craftilyeverash has the best idea #ontheblog today!!! The no mess way for your little girl to play with pretend makeup! Brassyapple.com #linkinprofile 1d
  •   brassyapple @jennyd4232 well everyone is different and raises their children differently. I love makeup but I also love myself without it. I'm happy with who I am. Tutorials come in all styles so maybe this one isnt for you ;) but it is a great option for those moms who have daughters who want to play with makeup but their moms would rather they not ;) its a happy medium for these families and relationships. Doesn't have anything to do with those moms thinking their daughters arent beautiful ....but a way of cultivating these relationships and finding common ground :) 1d
  •   thepottersplace I love this so much because if the little ones want to try make up then they are going to get into mine so why not give them their own!!!!!!!! And of coarse I love the fact that it is not messy!!!! This is awesome. 1d
  •   brassyapple Thanks @thepottersplace ! I think it would be fun to have them help create it like @craftilyeverash said :) 1d
  •   danio1225 I did this a few years ago and my girls LOVED IT!! We must have lost it and I forgot about it...we will have to do it again! 1d
  •   theroyalbeehivedotcom I did this for Audrey but made "pink blush" out of an old pressed powder case and light pink nail polish, she carries it in her play purse & loves the morrow part of the compact! Such a fun idea for the shadows!! 1d
  •   theroyalbeehivedotcom Uh *mirror 1d
  •   brassyapple Super cute and fun @theroyalbeehivedotcom 1d

brassyapple Kids have the best hearts and if we are open....they can teach us so many lessons daily. Walking an errand in the neighborhood with my little guy and along the way he said "oh weeds. Let's do some service and pull them up!" It would have been so easy to say no...to be in a hurry to get this errand done...to not want to bend over and get dirty with him... but instead I honored the tug he felt in his hwart to do this small act of service. And it only took a few small moments. Now did he do the best job? Nope. But he the best job for a 5 year old with little hands and walked away happy and smiling #itsthelittlethings #service #beteachable #boys #parenting 2d

brassyapple Help in my 10yr old in the kitchen this afternoon. He has never liked cold cereal for breakfast. Its a milk thing. But with school starting in a few days there is not always time to make pancakes, french toast, eggs etc each morning. So he's remaking some to freeze and then toast :) he says he feels loke a chef and is pretty impressed with all the work and prep he has put in this afternoon :) #motherhood #teaching #cooking 2d
  •   brassyapple Almost like your house @juliepmartin ;) 2d
  •   juliepmartin Lol. That's what I was thinking!! 2d
  •   ambrosila7 we do this at our house too (early morning workouts!) and my favorite thing is breakfast burritos! So full of protein and other goodness. :D 2d
  •   brassyapple @ambrosila7 do you premake those? We make them fresh all the time. He loves those.... 2d
  •   brassyapple Hey @mollythedancer13 you can eat some of these too 2d
  •   theroyalbeehivedotcom My boys are in their sophomore & senior years of HS this year, I make pancakes (froze between layers of wax paper then in freezer ziplock baggies) and Breakfast Burritos (flour tortilla with crumbled sausage, scrambled eggs, cooked hash browns & cheddar cheese cooled completely then rolled up & individually wrapped in plastic wrap and put on gallon ziploc baggies, microwave from frozen 1 min -1:45 mins w/o plastic wrap).... So easy to prep ahead & know my boys are eating something good (better than a pop tart & a mtn dew from the convenience store, right?!? 2d

brassyapple Its hard to describe the love and gratitude I have for so many of you who have reached out wanting to hear more about what I am hearing is being called "my secret project" :) because od the huge response (almost 300) I have delayed sending out the details until next week to avoid having to resend and resend. The requests are still coming in - again THANK YOU! I hope when the details are sent out next week that you will feel of its importance and the magnitude of what it can be and want to join in. Be brave, be bold, be true.
So - if you were waiting for that email, its coming.....

brassyapple Ive wanted to share this for a weeks now...just kept forgetting. I love instagram. I love sharing bits of my life and whats important to me virtually in this way with a photo. I also LOVE a good filter! LOL! Seriously right? Selfie pic, add a few filters, bump the contrast and voila! I'm looking better all the time! Ha ha....by in keep in it real and living in my own truth I just wanted to share this comparison. Left - unedited. Right - edited. My point? I love both pictures of me. And its got more to do with that girl I have to face in the mirror at the beginning and end of each day and less with my lipstick or that I really loved how my hair looked that day. Let your inner beauty enhance your outer #loveyourselffirst #innerbeauty #usesocialmediaforgood #therealme 4d
