Family Birthday Chart

I saw this on Pinterest and knew that I needed to make one for my Mother-in-law.  With a blended family, we have a ton of birthdays!  35.  I have a really good friend that I have do my vinyl and she found the font and everything and helped me put it together this past weekend.

How cool, huh!  I love it.  I wanted it a bit more neutral in colors so the Diane would want to hang it up.  We got a piece of oak and just stained it instead of painting it.  All in all it was an under $20 project.  Fun!

I had a lot of fun putting it together and I had a lot of help from friends and my hunny. :0)  Thanks!  Hope you like it Diane!

Race For the Cure Tutu's

Our family did the Race for the Cure last week and I wanted to share the tutu's I made for my girls.  My oldest was super happy to wear her's.  The baby... not so much. ;0)

I put together the baby's shirt too.  This is a new family tradition and I can't wait for next year.

Pinterest Overload

I may not look like I have done much lately but... I have.  I just haven't taken pictures to share.  So instead, I'm going to share all the links from Pinterest that I have done.  Ready?  :0)

Baby Wrap

Hair Detangler

Ribbon Flower for Mother's Day.

Cornmeal Waffles  I used my own recipe for chili on this one.  But I did make the seasoning from here.  It is a little spicy for our family so I think I am going to double everything but the chili powder and see if that helps.  Also, we loved the waffles with butter and honey on them too. ;0)

Bacon Ranch Chicken  We had it over pasta and rice.

Strawberry Spinach Salad with Strawberry Poppyseed Salad Dressing  WINNER!!!!!  This was a combination of two different salads.  I did both.  I made this salad with that dressing and just added strawberries.  I haven't tried the dressing that is in this recipe.  Sorry. But the chicken marinade is AMAZING!!!!

Chocolate Dipped Apple Slices

Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookies

Warm Bean Dip

Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Bread

Pepperoni Rolls with homemade Marinara sauce  I've decided I am canning this sauce we loved it so much.

Overnight, No Cook, Refrigerated Oatmeal  Raspberry is good. ;0)

Almond Joy Oatmeal  I liked it with Cream of Wheat also.

Pink Lemonade Poundcake

Pineapple Cupcakes  Make sure you drain the pineapple for the frosting.  Found out the hard way. :0/

Balsamic Chicken and Pasta Salad  We ate this for a dinner and my kids loved it.  Picked out the tomatoes but even ate the peppers.

Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich  Loved it!

Cream Cheese Chicken Chili  We have made this one twice!

And so many different kinds of Green Smoothies I can't even put them all on here.  I have one every morning for breakfast and try and do oatmeal for lunch.  I'm a big fan of changing things up but I have to say that the Banana Oatmeal Smoothie is one of my favorites. ;0)

See.  I have been busy. :0)  I have also been sewing up a storm.  I have made a few more of the Dora dresses for my nieces and have worked on some more baby things.  Little shoes that I keep having to re-make because I mess up, tag blankets, little rompers and some sun-dresses. ;0)  Now if I can get someone to come and do laundry, clean my bathrooms and kitchen, that would be great. :0)

New Skirt

I have gone through my kids clothes this last round of laundry, and took out all the pants that have holes in the knees to either patch or make into shorts.  I had one pair for my daughter and saw this on Pinterest and wanted to see what I could do.

Now, I have to say, I did this without looking at the link from Pinterest.  I just remember seeing something to the effect of making a pair of jeans into a skirt.  I think I would have liked to do it how it is on the site here but...

It is still cute.  It is like a tight little skirt for her which is wonderful because she can't have her legs up and in the air as much as she likes.  She can't climb like a monkey and be immodest while wearing a skirt.  :0)

Teacher Appreciation

This week and next are Teacher Appreciation Week for my kids.  I really wanted to do something for my children's teachers because all 3 of them have such amazing teachers.

Found this here and knew that I had to do it. 

I love these cups!  I have two of my own and don't know what I would do without them.  LOVE THEM!
