Easter is upon us! My children love to dye Easter Eggs, I enjoy it too. We often dye too many Easter Eggs, we end up eating egg salad sandwiches the entire Easter week. I find coloring and dying eggs very therapeutic.
Over the years we…

DIY can be fun, but it is even more rewarding when your child can learn new concepts from it. I have a little one who is excited about learning, it is important to take advantage of his enthusiasm (and involve him a little in the DIY process).

This year I am helping to organize our class reunion. Anyone who has done this can attest to the amount of work it takes (not to mention time, money, and energy). One of the easiest parts for us was coming up with a theme. Since we scheduled it for late summer we knew we wanted a more casual and fun theme so we decided on a luau BBQ.
While we have done electronic invitations already, some of our classmates expressed that they would like to receive paper…Continue
Kids can’t sleep because light is streaming through the curtains? Can’t afford blackout curtains? Check out these two hacks that I’ve found extremely useful:
1. VELCRO THE CURTAIN TO THE WALL

When I was redoing the playroom, I went back and forth on whether or not I needed curtains in there. The two windows in the room are large, original windows. One faces North and one faces West. The North facing window is surrounded by a line of trees and really doesn't need any window treatment on it, while the West facing window gets some sun in the afternoon/evening.
I originally thought about something really simple like wood blinds or even a nice roller shade. I wasn't crazy about…Continue
I can't believe May is almost over already. It has been feeling a lot more like March or April around here in Central Kansas. We have gotten so much rain these last few weeks and the temps have been in the 50's more than the 80's. I definitely don't want to complain about rain, but our garden could use a couple of consecutive sunny days.
We planted our garden a little over a month ago, and some things are really starting to take off!...(and some of it, not so much). This is our first…Continue
If you know anything about me, you know that I love a good deal. Like a super cheap, high-five yourself, kind of deal. You can call me cheap if you want to, I won't be offended. I will spend hours scouring flea markets and garage sales and enjoy every minute of it. Anytime I can save our family money, I feel pretty awesome about it.
The only thing better than finding a cool piece of furniture for a great price, is finding one in our home for free. In our upstairs bathroom, there is an…Continue
