Multiple Photos Frame(Non-Permanent)P

Mari chose Multiple Photos Frame (Non-Permanent) from With A Blast. “Wow this week was tough I had three favorites but I stuck to Linda’s Multi Photo Frame because I love to display my photographs everywhere! This was a great, quick and easy way to show off your favorite photos without having too much of a commitment such as nails and frames. You can always switch up the tape etc…loved it!!!”

Chicken and Dumplings2

Cathy chose Chicken and Dumplings in a Slow Cooker from My Turn For Us. “This chicken and dumplings dish is the perfect comfort food for a crisp, fall day! I love that this meal is packed with fresh goodness, prepared in the slow cooker and ready to enjoy after a busy day! I pinned this recipe for those days when slow cooker meals come in handy! “

Rachel chose Stop Doing That For Your Kids from Your Modern Family. “With a busy lifestyle, the “because it is easier” is so tempting sometimes. Love her honestly and awesome reminder.”

Natasha also chose this post. “Great post! It may be because I was raised by stringent grandparents or that I am a single mom, but I am a stickler on my son cleaning up after himself and helping me around the house. I have even instituted Clean-Up Saturdays where we clean up the entire apartment. It’s great to encourage our kids to do for themselves – it’s definitely good for them!”

Bedtime Anxiety

Yolanda chose How To Deal With Bedtime Anxiety from Barbie Bieber and Beyond. “The reason I selected this one is because I am in the pass where I am fighting with my son to sleep in his own bed. I know we will have lots of different bedtime issues as he grows up, so it was nice to read an article that let me know that I am not alone!”


The post with the most clicks is 44 Ways to Make Money as a Stay at Home Mom from MBA SAHM.

Things Women With Tattoos Know All Too Well…. from Sincerely Alaska


If you’re like me, then you have a special place in your heart for the art that is tattoos. It took me about a year to convince my parents to let me get one for my 18th birthday but once they agreed I was on a mini-roadtrip with one of my best friends. It was a scary moment for me to have my first one done…especially since I started off with a big calf piece.

Learning to Love my Post Baby Body from Life with Peanut


From the moment I found out I was pregnant, I was worried about how I would look. Don’t get me wrong, I was so excited about becoming a mom, but I was two months into a weight loss journey that was finally bringing me happiness.

sixteen Pantry organizational ideas from A Fresh Start on a Budget


Unfortunately we have a small kitchen and not much of a pantry area. Only one large cupboard. That doesn’t keep me from wanting it to be organized and planning for the day of a bigger kitchen with an amazing pantry. These are 16 amazing pantries that will give you some ideas for your own pantry no matter the size.

A Frozen Birthday Morning Surprise from The Organized Dream


If you read my Tour Through Blogland post, then you know that I wanted to create a Frozen themed winter birthday breakfast for my daughter. It is the first year her birthday falls on a school day and I wanted her to feel super special from the moment she woke up. I went with the Frozen theme because she has loved the movie since she had seen it in theaters. I thought it would be a great theme since it was a sweltering 90 degrees that day! Warm hugs are fine, but a Winter’s touch was better at this point!

How to Create a Photo Travel Map from My Big Fat Happy Life


I have several items on my bucket list. One that I decided on after S was born was to take her to visit all 50 states before she graduates from high school. That does not mean driving through a state. It means actually exploring the state…visiting museums, state parks, tourist attractions, etc. I believe that exposing S to different experiences, activities and travel is very important.

Skinny Banana Oatmeal Smoothie from Natural Chow


On Monday, Mother Nature decided to be all like “Hey, I know it was 100 degrees yesterday, but I think I’ll make it 53 degrees this morning.” Of course, I went outside Monday morning wearing shorts and a T-shirt thinking I was going to be sweating like crazy, but in reality, I had to go back inside and throw on a big ‘ol sweater just to keep my tiny little arms warm. Yep.

Sous Chef Sunday: Fast & Easy Refrigerator Pickles from 4 Sons ‘R’ Us


The sons have a love hate relationship with pickles. They either love them, or hate them. They’re firmly, and equally, entrenched on their sides with two for and two against. The hubs and I bolster each side with him against their salty, briny taste and me all for it! I’ve always got a family size jar in the fridge just for when one of us needs a pickled fix. Then I got a deal this summer from our local farmers market that resulted in us getting several pounds of free cucumbers. I couldn’t let those beauties go to waste, but wasn’t looking for anything in-depth that involved pectin and canning.

the gift of family time from Confessions of a Frumpy Mommy

family day collage

I mentioned yesterday that this year I asked Mr. B for a different kind of birthday present. I requested that he take a day off work (while I’m off work, of course) and that we spend the day together as a family.
