Avery Turned 1 Today!

Sorry, but today was not about me or anything else awesome in the world. Today was about my sweet baby girl Avery. She's our second child and just a blessing to us in ways that I never knew possible. So, dedicating a day to her meant Mommy wasn't glued to her laptop of hiding out in the office trying to post just one more thing. Today was about my munchkin! So, while Lilly our first awesome daughter was at church in their Awana's program (She is PROUD to be a Puggle) we took our baby girl out for a "sweet" date, just the 3 of us. Just across the street from church is a Publix grocery store; we picked up a single slice of cake. Since...

Fill your frosting bag without the mess!

Okay guys, I just about FREAKED OUT when I saw this tutorial from KarensCookies.net.

DIY Chip Clips

Happy Wednesday Everyone! This is not some rush of inspiration all my own but simply my attempt at a good idea spotted elsewhere. Ever wonder what to do with all those plastic store hangers you get with your kids clothes? Don't despair, there is always something you can do with everything! We don't often induldge in potato chips but when a great sale hits and a $4 bag of kettle brand chips only cost me $0.84, I snagged a few, or 6. So now that there are all these wonderful new chip flavors to try we ran into a problem. We don't really have any chip clips. Alligator clips, rubber bands and the old fold the bag into itself trick are all perfectly good options but...

Crockpot Season is upon us!

Okay, so maybe that's wishful thinking. I live in Florida where it won't be crockpot weather until December if that, but I'm missing my Maryland life where the weather was pleasant, the leaves were turning and the crockpot did my bidding (at least the cooking). Right now, the wonderful team at Southern Living have assembled a collection of 18 slow cooker recipes that will get you into that fall feeling including an awesome sounding French Dip sandwich recipe. So, dust off the old Crockpot ladies, and let it cook dinner for you tonight. Be sure to comment below and share some of your favorite crock pot dishes that you just can't go without! ...

Life’s too short to fold fitted sheets…until now.

I have long lived by that thought. Life was too short to suffer the frustration of attempting to fold fitted sheets, that was until I came across this how-to over at Stephmodo.com. I owe this discovery to the very popular Pinterest and thought I'd share it with you my readers. I folded several fitted sheets using this method last night and had a nerdy rush of "look at this" come over me as I unfolded and refolded some bedding just to show my husband. He was pleased stating, "I guess I just got out of folding fitted sheets for the rest of my life, since it's now a one person job." True. I'm kinda dorky that way. So, now that you know how achievable a neat...

Say No to Yellow

While battling uphill the colossal pile of laundry that has taken over  my house I was reminded of a time, much like now, when we were preparing for the arrival of a new baby. We had pulled out all the stored clothing to determine what would go a 2nd round of use on our coming munchkin. I was shocked and disgusted to find giant yellow "stains" on nearly every Onesie and many of the precious outfits that were rarely worn. Again my best buddy Google was there for me as I discovered that the so called "stains" were the yellowing of microscopic traces of organic matter that were left on the clothing despite being washed before being stored. It was recommended that I use a...

Better living through “technology”

Came across this video of a very inspirational and inventive man who is lighting the homes of his small community using what is essentially trash. Makes you reconsider throwing that bottle into the recycling bin. How could you reuse your soda or water bottle? The thought of lighting up your kids playhouse in the backyard seems all the more affordable now. So the real question comes, what are you going to do with this new bit of inspiration> ...

What a nice day for grilled cheese

Maybe it's because I'm pregnant and have intense and very random cravings for otherwise very normal foods, but today was all about grilled cheese for me. Yummy delicious melty american cheese on wheat with dill pickles. No this is not a pregnant haze concoction this is something I grew up eating, thanks mom! So with my trusty frying pan in hand and all my ingredients laid out, I made an awesome lunch for the Hubbs and myself, only to have my 2 little ones asking for some. Ugh, guilt. "No, honey. These will make you sick." My 2 girls have several food allergies which include all things dairy. Casein to be exact, and Soy doesn't sit well with them either. Thank you LORD for almond milk! So after...
