It's a dog eat jello world...

Yes, I did a jello post last time. I can do more than one, it's my blog. :)

This jello isn't for you though, it's for your pooch. You could eat it if you really wanted, but I don't think it would taste that great. :/

Why make jello for your dog? That's silly, and weird... 

But did you know gelatin is really good for your dogs? It contains an amino acid called glycine that has anti-inflammatory and brain protecting abilities. It has been shown to be helpful to dogs with hip dysplasia, arthritis and even epilepsy.

Super yummy jello cups? Yes please!

My kids love jello. I love jello. Wiggly jiggly yumminess. :)

What does jello cost now a days? I don't even know I haven't bought it in so long, but I do know it's full of artificial-ness.

I have a box of raspberry jello in my pantry that expired May of 2013. Oops. Oh well. I read the ingredients list, here is what I found.
Lots of sugar, acids for tartness and sodium citrate for acid control. That seems silly... and no raspberry anything anywhere. It's all fake stuff.

If you don't mind eating that, that's fine. I just don't like to. If I'm eating raspberry jello I want at least a little bit of raspberry to be in there. Is that too much to ask?

8 Years People!

Justin and I have been married 8 years today! So guess what?! You get to see wedding photos. :)

But first a little background story.

Justin and I grew up together. We met in Sunday School, I think that's awesome. I have known him since as far back as I can remember. I have no idea how old we were when we first met, but I don't really remember not knowing him so I count it as all my life. :)

The Land of Toothpaste...

I have gone off the deep end people. I have entered a new level of slightly crazy...

I make my own toothpaste!

Don't be expecting before and after tooth pictures. For one, those are guross. For two, I don't have nice teeth. I have never had nice teeth. They are crooked and forever yellow. I do love my coffee you know, and there is no way I can talk myself into spending huge amounts of money for a whitening kit. Nope. Not gonna happen.

But I do LOVE my homemade toothpaste. I used to have really bad sensitivity issues. Cold, bad. Sweet, bad. Not anymore. My teeth feel so much cleaner and just all around more wonderful with this paste.
