Christmas time is here, can you guys believe it!? I am getting out all of my decorations on Friday and plan on spending the day putting the up while sipping on hot chocolate and jamming out to some Christmas songs. My favorite part of decorating for Christmas and putting up the tree! Every year my family and I make a new ornament for our tree so we can remember that particular year. It’s one of my daughters favorite traditions so we usually let her pick out the ornament we are going to make each year. So with that in mind I thought I would share with you some of the best DIY ornaments that we found from across the web while searching for the perfect ornament for our family. Perhaps your family perfect DIY ornament is right here on this list! Lets check them out:Read More »10 DIY Ornaments to make for your Christmas Tree

Free Printable Santa Letter For Kids

Christmas is one of my favorite holidays of the year! I love filling my house the holiday cheer, spending time with family, and I’ll admit it, the presents are pretty fun too. Lucky for me, my 7 year old still believes in the magic of Santa and gets really excited to write him a letter every year with what she wants. This year we wanted to try something a little different. Instead of asking Santa for random gifts, I wanted to try out the 4 gift path I had seen recently. The 4 gifts are something I want, something I need, something to wear, and something to read! So she can pick out a toy she wants, something she needs (like an electric pencil sharpener), a new outfit, and a new book! I LOVE this idea. Not only does it prevent me from going overboard (which I tend to do) it keeps her from expecting too much as well. And anything to promote reading is awesome with me! Read More »Free Printable Santa Letter For Kids

Easy DIY Halloween Tutu

Hello my fellow Halloween lovers! Tomorrow is officially fall, who else is excited!? I am so glad that I have a kid that loves fall holidays as much as I do. Every year at my daughters school they are not allowed to dress up in full Halloween costumes, but they are allowed to dress in Halloween clothing. So I thought it would be fun to make a DIY Halloween Tutu for my daughter to wear! Something that has always amazed me is the price of tutu’s either in store or online. They can get super expensive. This project cost me $5 total, and turned out pretty cute in my oh-so-humble opinion. Would you like to learn how to make one for yourself? Let’s check it out!Read More »Easy DIY Halloween Tutu

DIY Ghost Mirror Halloween Project

You guys, Halloween is almost here! I am SO excited! I am already sneaking a few decorations up here and there. Only a few at a time so my husband doesn’t get too mad at me haha! Now while I love my Halloween decorations, what I don’t love is having to spend tons of money on them. I don’t know what it is about holiday items being so expensive, but it drives me nuts. So rather than shelling out the money at the big box stores, I find out way’s I can make Halloween decorations at home! So this week I decided to try my hand at a DIY Creepy Ghost Mirror which was inspired by something I saw in the store for $30 that I wasn’t going to spend ha! This project cost me…$2 to make. Yes really! And the cool thing about it is that you can only see the “ghost” if you are standing right in front of it. If you stand beside it it just looks like a dusty old mirror. Keep on reading if you would like to learn how to make one of your own!Read More »DIY Ghost Mirror Halloween Project

I am that mom. The one that embraces tacky treats for different holidays. I want my kids to have something fun to remember and even pass on when they grow up. I am making Halloween Breakfast Foods. I will however, admit I totally cheat. I make things that are easy and require more creativity than ability. I value time enjoying the meal over the time to create one. I hope you enjoy my little slice of crazy as I share my monster muffin idea for breakfast.

This is what I did I bought a box of corn muffin mix. Then I followed the box and made them. Less time well just buy corn muffins that are already made. You can grab any muffin type.Read More »Halloween Breakfast Foods

Blackberry Jam Cake

You’ve likely never heard of jam cake. It’s a closely held regional recipe to the south. One that families pass down from generation to generation, bring to celebrations, and give to neighbors and friends. Jam cake is a dense, moist spice cake covered in a rich, creamy glaze. And while the recipe varies from region to region, one thing remains the same: the addition of delicious jam. Perfect for fall parties or Christmas, this blackberry jam cake tops the list of things I cook for my husband, and now I’m sharing it with you!Read More »Blackberry Jam Cake

Strawberry With Goat Cheese And Basil Bruschetta Recipe

It’s strawberry season down here in Tennessee ya’ll! Nothing says summer like a ripe red strawberry on a hot day if you ask me! I’m lucky to live in an area surrounded by farmland. We have plenty of fresh fruit, farmers markets, and something my family and I love to do every summer, a strawberry patch! It is so fun to head to the strawberry patch and pick out some fresh strawberries first thing in the morning. Lucky for us our patch also happens to be on a pig farm, so we can pick up some fresh bacon and sausage as well. Which means after our visit we go home and make a yummy and super fresh breakfast! But there is one tiny downside. When you have a daughter that loves picking the strawberries, you end up with 4 pounds of strawberries. So you have to get a little creative in how you are going to eat all those strawberries before they go bad. But don’t you fret! There are So many ways to eat strawberries. Today I wanted to show you one of my favorite ways, my Strawberry with goat cheese and basil Bruschetta! It’s SO good you guys! Read More »Strawberry With Goat Cheese And Basil Bruschetta Recipe
