FROZEN Party Table Decorations

Surprise!  Our daughter chose a FROZEN theme for her party this year.  I know, not surprising, right?  Doesn’t every single 5 year old girl in America choose FROZEN for her party theme this  year?  I’m guessing a lot of my fellow moms of princesses have been pinning and scouring the internet for FROZEN party ideas!  Ladies, you are not alone!

DIY Halloween Treat Bowl

DIY Treat Bowl #modpodge

I wrote this post as part of a paid campaign with Mod Podge and Blueprint Social. The opinions in this post are my own.

I love it when Mod Podge goodies show up on my door step-particularly those I get to craft with!  As soon as I saw my Mod Podge box of fun arrive, I knew I was going to embellish a plain bowl for our Halloween Treats this year.  I tend to keep the Halloween decor on the down low for two reasons.

Our family has undergone a bit of a lifestyle change these past few weeks.  Instead of going back to work at the library, I have decided to stay home and work on my travel business. For me, that means a lot of sitting during the day.   I NEED to get up and move around, otherwise I feel blah.  Not only that, but I need to be making healthy choices and I need to be aware of my own wellness so I can be an example to our kiddos.  Working from home is a blessing, for sure.  But it is also hard to balance both working at home and spending time with my family.  So, we have been trying to get out more and enjoy the nice weather and our local area.

Are you into the back to school routine?  We are working our way there!  I love being home with the kiddos in the summer, but now that I work from home, it’s nice to have the house to myself for a few hours each day.  Since we have fallen into the school routine, I thought it was time to fall into a simple chore routine.  In our house, the one thing the boys fight over is who is loading and unloading the dishwasher.  I mean it really can’t be easier.  We use Finish Tabs, so there’s no mess and whoever gets to unload opens a very clean dishwasher with sparkling dishes every time   Alas, there is always fighting over who “does the dishes”.  So, I started a small chore list, with meal time responsibilities.  Today, I want to share my Easy Family Chore List & Command Center and I hope you’ll avoid some responsibility conflict with your kiddos!
