Go big or go home, that’s kind of the motto in our house. Along those same lines, we like to DIY on the cheap in our house. We will often pick up “oops” paint colors at the home improvement store, and then making do with the left over colors from our other painting projects to make something amazing. Well, our downstairs bathroom is no exception. And with the help of Cutting Edge Stencils, we now have an impressive and beautifully accented wall in what was once our very plain downstairs bathroom.
I am so, so excited to start 2015 with an organizational post, AND the Silhouette Challenge! Last year, the Silhouette Challenges were so fun and inspirational! This year, we are doing something different~each month has a bonus challenge. For January, we started with the very popular topic of ORGANIZATION, and the bonus challenge to use VINYL! I jumped at the chance to add some fun labels to my daughter’s toy bins for this month’s challenge. Organize? YES! Use vinyl? YES, YES!
As much as I love Disney food, I decided that each month in 2015, I’m going to share a Disney Parks inspired food! Our family has visited Walt Disney World so many times, and in turn we’ve enjoyed much of the best food on Disney property! One of my husband’s FAVORITE treats is found throughout the Disney parks, but he always manages to snag these Cinnamon Coated Almonds while we are shopping at Downtown Disney.
It’s vacation planning time for a lot of people! Yay! With the New Year upon us and a new special offer from Disney, many are thinking of their family vacations. Walt Disney World is a very popular one! One of the exciting aspects of planning a Disney vacation is making reservations at some of the table service restaurants on Disney property!
Is saving money one of your goals for the New Year? I am always looking for a way to save a few extra dollars for our family. One way I save money is to shop at our local consignment shop, as well as sell my items there. I often have good luck finding items for our daughter, and sometimes her older brothers. If saving money is one of your goals for 2015, then keep reading! Today I want to share my 5 Tips for Shopping Secondhand Stores.
I love looking back at My Favorite Finds, and enjoying how it has changed and grown over the years. Four years! December 29, 2010, I wrote my first post about Decorated Sugar Cookies. In 2015, I’ll be celebrating the 5th birthday of my small piece of cyberspace, and I wanted to thank all of YOU for making that possible!
Do you ever have a grand idea for a recipe, and it just goes out the window? If not, you’re lucky. That is sort of what happened when I saw these Double Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Pretzels on Pinterest. Aren’t they impressive? I was SO excited to make them for our Ladies Bible Study Cookie Exchange Party. Appearing super easy, and having most of the ingredients on hand, I went out and picked up some sourdough pretzels. As soon as I opened the box, I knew it was all over. There was only ONE whole pretzel in the whole box~the rest were broken into pieces. Ugh! I knew it wasn’t going to work, and I wasn’t about to go buy every box of pretzels in hopes of salvaging enough to pull this recipe off. Plan B it was.
Happy Friday! Every Friday, I get to share tips on Disney Dining over on Celebrations Blog. How awesome! By the time I’m done writing my posts, I am drooling and making my next “must eat” list for our Disney World trip. Today, I am sharing my Top Five Snacks at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
