Make your house FEEL cleaner with one easy step!

Happy Wednesday :) Today is halfway through week 2 of spring break. We have been having so much fun alternating between having adventures and vegging out at home!

April Picture Challenge

April is almost here. Spring has been blooming outside and we have been taking advantage of every warm day. After dinner walks, park days and playing outside are our favorite activities, although I wouldn't be upset if it got a little warmer!

DIY Easter Photo Shoot

Yesterday I put together a DIY Tutu Easter Basket. The instructions with video can be found here. Today, I decided to use our new tutu basket as a prop in an Easter photo shoot.

DIY Tutu Easter Basket

For the past couple weeks, I have been thinking about the fact that Easter is fast approaching... But I have done nothing to prepare for it. I think we will probably be coloring our Easter eggs on Saturday night!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

The first time I made these cookies it was for a family reunion cookie exchange. Every person attending would bring several dozen cookies and everyone got to go home with a couple of each variety.

It was such a wonderful party and these cookies were a hit! I actually ended up making them again not too long after that party because I had to give too many of them away :)

Happy Pi Day!

Happy Pi Day! As a long time math nerd, I love that Pi gets its very own day every March 14th. This year, I heard that it was technically Rounded Pi Day since 3.14159 rounded up is 3-14-16. I love it!

St. Patrick's Day Pancakes

We love Brinner at our house! Not familiar with a meal called brinner? Well, it is the genius idea to scarf down breakfast food at dinner time, thus br-inner!

DIY Yarn Wrapped Letters #TBT

Happy Throwback Thursday! While I was pregnant with Olivia, I spent way too much time looking up ideas for her nursery. One of my favorite ideas that I found were yarn wrapped letters to hang on the wall. I loved the pop of color against the wall, in addition to the texture of the yarn.

Like A Girl

Today is International Women's Day. It is a day to acknowledge and appreciate the wise women who came before us to pave the way towards equal rights. In addition, it is a day to empower females of all ages. This year, for the first time, I am viewing this day not only through my own eyes but also through the eyes of my daughter.

Free Family Movies

Our local movie theater has one of the coolest programs I know about. Every spring and fall, they offer 9 weeks of free family movies. Each Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 10:00 AM, you can see the selected movie completely free of charge! Recently, they changed the policy so that you need to have a Frequent Movie Goer card which provides 6 free admissions. Non-members must pay $1 per ticket. Guess how much it costs to get a FMG card? NOTHING!

Best Banana Bread Ever!

I have to be honest, I'm actually not the biggest fan of banana bread. I know, I know, I'm crazy!!! That being said, Paul and several of my other favorite people thoroughly enjoy it! So, when I notice that I have bananas that are past their prime, I love to whip up a loaf :)

March Picture Challenge

March is here! Today in Indiana, it is rainy and dreary which actually makes it feel like spring! That being said, midwest weather likes to bungee jump around as the seasons change, so I won't be surprised if we have another snow or two before warm weather is here to stay.

In honor of the impeding spring, I am going to be doing a March photo challenge! I will be sharing the pictures primarily on Instagram, but you will probably be able to find them on a few of the other social media sites if you keep your eyes open.
