DIY Divas ALS Ice Bucket Challenge


Meg and I once knew a Doctor who oversaw some of our prenatal care during our first pregnancies. This Doctor suffered from ALS and I remember on the last visit I had with him, he rolled himself into my room on an office chair because he was having such difficulty walking and he wore a neck brace. These were signs of his illness quickly taking over. He didn't live much longer after that day.  This Ice Bucket Challenge is for Doctor Gordon, who helped bring so many lives into the world, and who was taken from the world too soon.

Scout Loves Purina® Beyond®

This post brought to you by Walmart. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Do It Yourself Divas.

Scout is trying some incredible new dog food. It sounds so healthy, you would think a human could eat it! It's made with all natural ingredients plus essential nutrients. There are no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. It's made with real meat, poultry, or fish. And get this, it even excludes grains like corn, wheat, and soy. Sounds like the perfect diet for anyone in the family. The best part is, you can get it at your local Walmart. So what is it already?? It's Purina® Beyond®.

Before we even opened the dog food, Scout was sniffing it and getting excited.

It didn't take long before she had it all scarfed down.



Here is one very satisfied dog. Can't you tell? To show her appreciation, she had to snuggle up and give some doggy loves. We love Scout and want her to live a long, happy, healthy life; Purina® Beyond® helps her to be just that.

DIY: Giant Yard Twister Game with SHAVING CREAM



All you need for this amazing giant twister game is, a little patience and..

A huge tarp


Some tape to find even spaces for your soon-to-be painted circles...
(I literally just taped on the folded crease marks on the tarp that were already there.  Easy Peasey!  The tape just allowed me to see things a little better.)


A large circle bowl to trace...



Four colors of paint...
We decided to be a little untraditional in our twister color choices.


Now just paint those circles in..



Take the tape off and, voila!


Instead of a twister spinner I made dice out of UPS cube boxes.
This made the game a little more exciting!



You need a color box, a hand/foot box and a right/left box.

To top things off we decided to add a little shaving cream to the each circle on the tarp before the game was started.



The results were priceless!
