How to Make a Super Hero Mask and Wristbands

My little monkey is asking to have a super hero birthday party this year.  I want it to be really fun, but don’t want to spend a ton of money.  I decided to make the kids their own super hero masks and wrist bands to use during the party and keep as party favors. I […]

Fun Thanksgiving Turkey Craft

It’s Thanksgiving time and I have a lot to be thankful for. Mainly, my three little monkeys that constantly amuse me (did I mention my hubby is a pretty good catch also?!). I feel like Thanksgiving is often a rushed holiday… its thrown in there after the huge excitement of Halloween and rushed through so […]

A Weird Mommy Moment!

With three boys (6yrs, 3yrs, and 2yrs old) I am not often surprised.  Most of the shenanigans they pull just make me shrug my shoulders and think, “hhhmmm, business as usual.” I found while talking to my next door neighbor (she has three adorable girls aged 7 and under) and some of my other friends […]

Easy Dining Chair Re-Upholster

These dining chairs had gotten pretty grubby, but the chairs are solid so we didn’t want to replace the whole set.  We decide to see how hard it would be to re-upholster them.  As it turned out, this was so easy and cheap to do! Total time for all 4 chairs: 20 minutes!  Total cost:  […]

Halloween Spider Jello!

My very creative sister came up with this cute Halloween snack to bring to her daughter’s Kindergarten party.    It is very easy and was a big hit with the kids.  All you need is a package of plastic spiders from the dollar store, some clear plastic cups, and some orange colored jello.  Make the jello […]

Yummy White Chicken Chili with Bacon!

So I love chili… that is really all there is to it for me.  It is getting cold out, especially since that crazy October snow storm, which means I have had chili on my mind!  Unfortunately, my hubby just doesn’t share my enthusiasm for it. I have been trying to find a recipe that Danny […]

Oops! The best Caramel Popcorn Mistake!

You guys are going to love this!  In preparation for a movie night, I started making some chewy caramel popcorn from a recipe I have used a few times before.  It’s a simple recipe, but I was multi-tasking as mom’s tend to always be doing.  I mean really, since I have had kids have I […]

Trunk or Treat Party!

We took the kids to a Trunk or Treat party at our church last night.  It was so much fun! The car parked next to us had a life size skeleton with motion sensors.  If someone walked close to it, the skeleton would play music and dance.  To say my barely two year old was […]

Cinnamon Rolls From Scratch!!!

When I asked my hubby what memories makes him think of family, in particular his mom, he told me he remembers how his house smelled of yummy food cooking when he came home from basketball practice or from a friends house.  For some reason, the smell of delicious food baking gives us that warm comfort […]

Crepes, Crepes, and More Crepes!

I love crepes!  Growing up crepes were always a unique passion my Dad and I shared…  I say unique because when you are one of seven children in your family having something that is just yours is REALLY hard to come by.  Crepes have always been a traditional food for me… My Dad is the […]
