Skin Savior: DIY Mint Cucumber and Green Grapes Facial Scrub

My skin just seems to automatically know when September is here and summer is ending. I start to see large flaky patches on my chin, nose, and between my eyebrows. Let me tell you, it is not attractive at all.

Luckily for me, I've discovered this miracle skin scrub to keep my face as smooth as a baby's bottom.

Walworth County Fair

In my family, we have our traditions, like Christmas Eve at my Aunt Ellen's house and going to the Zoo Lights at Lincoln Park Zoo every year, and then we have our "traditions". By "traditions", I mean we do something once and then claim it as a tradition from that point on like we've been doing it for decades.

Take in point, the Walworth County Fair. Last year on Labor Day, we were lounging around home doing a whole lotta nothing until someone suggested we try going to the fair. So once Labor Day rolled around again this year, what's a family supposed to do but keep up with "tradition" and go to the fair again!

Pies Pies Pies Part 2: Peach Blueberry Crumble Pie

My original plan for my grandpa's Labor Day Bash was to just make two Apple Crumble Pies, but gramps recently saw some movie that talked about a peach and blueberry pie and made a request that I try it.

Pies Pies Pies Part 1: Apple Crumble Pie

Every year since I can remember, my grandparents have had a big labor day bash down by the beach but for the past few years, they've stopped hosting this end of summer shindig. 

Out of the blue a few weeks ago, my grandfather announced that he was bringing back the celebration! Who am I to say no to a party? 

To make the day even better, I decided to make not one but two delicious pies. And luckily for you, I am going to share the super simple recipes...
