5 Quick Tips to Organize the Playroom

It is common for playrooms to have lots of toys. Toys on the floors, toys on the table, toys everywhere. However, just because it is a playroom doesn’t mean toys have to be all over the place. On the contrary, organized and tidy playrooms are much more fun to be in. If you want your kids’ playroom to feel that way too, you need to find a way to keep it tidy and neat. For the sake of happy kids and a happy mum, here are some quick and easy tips for organizing your playroom. Enjoy!

DIY chalkboard wine glasses from the Dollar Store {step by step guide} from The Wedding by Jen


A couple weeks ago, I gave you all a look into a little black dress bridal shower that was thrown for my best friend. I showed that for the shower game, we had a wine tasting. It seemed to be very well received by all of the guests! For me, I had a blast getting the game ready and that included making these really cute {and inexpensive} chalkboard wine glasses. Not only did they serve purpose during the wine tasting game, but they doubled as party favors for each guest to take home. As promised earlier, here is my step-by-step guide at how I created them!

Frumpy is a state of mind from Confessions of a Frumpy Mom

2014-04-09 11.39.31

A few of my friends and/or readers have told me they don’t consider me frumpy. Thank YOU! I truly appreciate that and then I thought about it. First, anyone who is friends with me on Facebook has a somewhat biased view of my “frumpiness” because I typically wouldn’t post a pic of me in all my frumpy glory (though I have unluckily been tagged in a few – thank you “friends”). The other thing is that while I may not always appear frumpy, sometimes it’s more about how I feel about how I look.

Chalkboard “Autumn” Banner {How to Decorate For Fall on a Budget} from The Domestic Heart

chalkboard-banner-2-875x1024 (1)

This year money is pretty tight. Paying for all of our expenses, including grad school loans for two people, on one income does not leave a lot of room in the budget for seasonal decorating. Can you relate? Well I’m going to be sharing a series of projects and posts dedicated to decorating on a budget, namely for fall.

How a Mom Enjoys Her Coffee in 97 Steps from Three Boys and a Mom

wpid-0911141124 I’ve never been a, “I have to have my coffee or I can’t function” type person. Thank God. I do enjoy coffee though, and have learned it certainly helps as a sleep deprived mom of 3. It’s a rare day I get to actually drink the coffee though, and I usually have about 4 half empty, or half full if you want to be an optimist, cups of coffee spread throughout the house. Here’s how drinking coffee typically goes in this house. (Mind you, MANY steps of the day are missing. This is just a generalized run down of the coffee drinking process.)

Brown Butter Pumpkin Bread with Vanilla Bean Icing from Cooking with K

pumpkin bread

Have you ever browned butter? I have just recently been introduced to brown butter from a friend who is well-versed in it. She came over for a lesson in pie crust making, and I got a lesson in how to make my first brown butter. I don’t know why for so long I have been intimidated with this magical secret ingredient! Not anymore!

Homemade Garden Salsa from Melanie Gets Married


As I mentioned in my recent garden update, I have vegetables coming out my ears! When I planted the garden, my plan was to make homemade salsa with all the fresh vegetables from our garden. I had no idea how many batches of salsa I would be making, but the count is currently up to eight. Eight batches of salsa, folks!

Top Ten Honeycrisp Apple Recipes from Pins & Procrastination


It’s beginning to feel a lot like fall… and I’m excited. It’s not about the pumpkins, or sweaters, or not sweating the second you step outside. For me, fall is all about the honeycrisp apple. If you’ve never eaten a honeycrisp, you are missing out on life. I pretty much don’t want to eat anything else. They are so perfectly crispy and sweet. When honeycrisps aren’t in season, I have a hard time eating apples. They have ruined all other apples for me. They are everything an apple should be.

Blueberry Banana Bread Muffins from My Big Fat Happy Life


We went blueberry picking in July at a local U Pick Farm. We had fun picking blueberries and even ran into old neighbors, but boy was it hot out. S did a great job picking and trying to fill up her own container. However, after about 5 pounds of blueberries S was done.

Low Cost Laundry Room Makeover from Shambray

Whole pic

Our laundry room was kind of dark and dreary. This was the first thing we remodeled when we moved into our home. We started by taking out the old and slanted cabinets. Then we took off the old and gross paneling.

My Finds Friday

TGIFF! Yes, two Fs for, Finds Friday. 🙂

Oh what a week it has been! Work life is beyond busy, which makes home life fly by. We get home, after 6 and then it’s dinner, bath and bed. I wish there was some magic secret to gain more time in the day, other than giving up sleep, I just can’t do that. Regardless of how busy life is, life is good and my family is amazing. I make sure to spend every single minute that I have with my guys, present and completely involved with them. They make my world!

my-finds-friday-1220And now this week’s finds!

And that’s it for this week!

Feel free to grab my button and link on up below.

 Your turn!

What are your plans for the weekend?

What are some of your favorite finds from this past week?


My Finds Friday – Random

Happy My Finds Friday, Random edition!

I don’t have a theme for this week because everything I want to share is all over the place. Plus, Emmett’s been pretty sick with a fever so there hasn’t been much time for surfing the net (as they say). lol

Over the last week, we’ve been to the Pediatrician twice and each time we leave there not knowing what could be causing Emmett’s fever. They armed us with loads of information on how to control his temperature and what could be the potential causes and some things to look out for, but nothing definite. Today when we went, the doctor looked Emmett over from top to bottom, even looking between his toes for blisters (Hand, Foot and Mouth disease) and saw nothing. The one place she did not look was his bottom. I changed him and didn’t notice anything either, so I can’t really blame her but Seamus was peeking to see if E had a poopy butt and noticed tiny spots, we looked closer and it is almost definitely Roseola. During his bath, I noticed his belly is starting to get the spots now too. Ugh!

How Roseola works is, the child gets a fever for a couple days, then the fever breaks and the rash starts up. I wasn’t really clued into his fever breaking because I kept him on a cycle of Tylenol and Ibuprofen all day to keep his temp down (it was 103.2 when he woke up), so it was always in the normal range. However, at some point, it must have gone away on its own because the rash is most definitely there. Everything I’ve read indicates that it is not an itchy rash, so it shouldn’t effect Emmett too much, other than being spotted, which is a good thing. I’ll just give the doctors a call tomorrow, to find out if they need to see him again, I doubt it since it’s a viral infection, and to find out how long it is contagious so that we know when he can go back to day care. Either way, I’m hoping this doesn’t last long, a sick baby is NO fun!


Now, on to My Finds Friday – Random

  •  Holiday time is coming and everyone loves creating those great pictures for their holiday cards. I found this via Pinterest and I’m in love! Christmas Lights Photo Tutorial – Can’t you just picture Baby Doodah being so adorable lit up with some white lights?
  • Most of us are really busy and even the most healthy of people need some convenience food items to snack on. This post by Fed and Fit, shares some Paleo snack items to help get you through the week.
  • If I happen to find some time, I’d love to make these snowman gift tags for my gifts this season.
  • As I get older, savings becomes more and more important, but it’s seems so hard to save and not feel like you’re broke. This is a great post from Money Saving Mom, about how to save and not feel broke.
  • Balsamic Glazed Steak Rolls – Holy smokes these look amazing!

Alright folks, those are my “random” finds for the week!

Your turn!

What random finds have you come across this week?
