For thirteen years, I was an elementary teacher. Eleven of those years were spend teaching first grade! Every year at the end of the school year, I did a math scavenger hunt with my kids! Since I have such a big Teacher Tribe and Mama Tribe, I thought I would share this resource with you to do with your kids! Some of it will need to be modified since we are not in school, but I hope you find it helpful, and it gets your kids outside and having fun!
Briton requested a few oldies but goodies for dinners this week! So…. I busted out the photo album that holds all of our favorite recipes! It was kind of fun to glance back at recipes I made throughout the years! We landed on “Sausage Rolls”, and I realized that I had never made these for the kids! So while 90% of the time, we try to eat healthy, it is fun to splurge 10% of the time on a recipe like sausage rolls!! The kids absolutely loved these and can’t wait to have them again!
During this extra time at home, I have been looking through all of my recipes and making some that I haven’t made in years! I remember Briton having these cookies in his lunch in high school when we were dating! These are filled with simple ingredients that you probably have on hand, and they are a family favorite! And yes… even though I don’t like chocolate, I still make them for my chocolate-loving family!
I have had several requests for a closet tour! So I am sharing my tips and tricks on how I keep things organized! I hope it gives you some fresh ideas!
When Briton and I first got married, his mom gave me a recipe book filled with all of his favorite recipes from growing up! Since we are all home more, I have been looking through the book and finding some of our favorites that I haven’t made for years! These frosty strawberry squares are such a refreshing dessert! Ironically, I had never made them for the kids! We made these this week, and they have been a HUGE hit!
I have been getting so many questions lately about my daily routine, what I eat, and exercises I do. So I am sharing what I do daily to help look and feel my best. I am not a medical professional or expert by any means, but I a sharing what works for me!
One of the things we have enjoyed during this slower time at home is watching some fun shows with the kids! It has been fun to relive our TGIF days! Here are a few shows that our family has been loving!
With so many of us spending more time at home, I thought I would create a blog post with my top show recommendations! Over the years, here are a few shows that I have enjoyed watching by myself or with Briton!
I am excited to finally be sharing my new home office on the blog – or as Briton likes to call it, “my second closet”! I guess it kind of is my closet and office…. a cl-office??? In less than a month, this space has helped make my day-to-day life working from home function so much better! I am also sharing the life lesson I learned along the way.
I am certainly NOT an expert, but since we are not leaving the house, I decided to attempt to do an at-home dip manicure. It’s not perfect by any means, but I hope this helps those of you doing your manicures at home too!
