Sooooo....here I am making a blog about our crazy life! It seems to be very busy these days, so hopefully I will be able to keep up! Here's a little about me: My name is Keli. I am married to an awesome guy who is a Machinery Technician in the Coast Guard. I have two amazing boys that keep me on my feet. We are in our second year of homeschooling our oldest, and the youngest is almost 2! We are currently at our first land station in Rhode Island. We both group up in the South, so it was a big adjustment when we got here! I love to be with my family and friends. I enjoy cooking, crafting, wasting time on Pinterest, and a good glass of wine. I am in the process of building my photography  business. I am also a consultant with Tupperware! I love all of my jobs! If there is anything I missed, let me know!
I will start off with one of our recent homeschool projects. Jacob is currently learning about the Phoenicians in our Social Studies lessons. We just finished learning how they used different dyes to color their clothing and other items. Then conveniently, that same day, while seeing what was happening on Pinterest, I came across this link for a Phoenician Dye project! How perfect, right? Here is how ours turned out:
First, we got a small head of red cabbage.
Then we cut it all up! And yes, that is our dinner in the crock pot!! I will share the recipe later! :) 
Our fingers were already starting to turn purple!!


Once it was all cut, we boiled it for about an hour
Then, drained the cabbage
and added a white shirt to the purple liquid!

While we were waiting for the shirt to soak, I cleaned the purple spots off the stove!
I also like to do the occassional link party! Here is one I found for Tuesdays. It is hosted by Mom's Best Nest. It is called the Flock Together Tuesday Blog Hop! I always like to find new inspiration! :)

I will be sharing more about our life as it happens. I am getting ready for my first Scentsy party today, then I am heading up to Vermont to camp for a few days with some of our friends! I am very excited! we only hvae Vermont and Maine left on our list of New Engalnd places to camp! I will defnitely be posting those photos once we get back!

I would love to hear from you!
Until next time,
xoxo
