How I get my kids to eat FISH.

how-to-get-kids-to-eat-fish.jpg

I have THE. BEST. recipe for fish.  It’s pretty intense, so prepare yourself. Step 1: Go to Costco. Step 2: Buy this box of tortilla crusted tilapia: source Step 3: Follow the instructions. The end. I know my friends came to this post thinking it was a joke. Well they were partly right. I do cook at times, but I’m not one to slave in the kitchen all day to put a delicious meal on the table.

Hey, hey, hey! How was your weekend? I’m a little slow to post today because I have a weekend hangover.  <---can you relate? Do you ever feel like you need a weekend to recover from your weekend? That’s how I feel today. Our weekend was mostly defined by two words: Dance Competition. My oldest is a really good dancer {yes I’m bragging, but I can’t help it}.

How to make a spinning chore chart {out of an IKEA Lazy Susan}

chore chart for kids[3]

Today I get to be on Studio 5, a morning show in Utah, and I’m excited to show my fun spinning chore chart on the show today! This project was a challenge from Studio 5 to make something fun out of 2 Lazy Susans from IKEA. IKEA is one of my fave stores on the planet.

how-to-clean-car-mats

To answer the question that I know you are thinking, yes these are really my car mats. You may think I am disgusting after seeing the floor mats from my mini-van.

We basically live in the car on some days of the week. Thursdays are especially crazy for us. We … [Read more...]

How did YOU take away your child’s binky?

Taking away your child's binky

Creed is a monster. He is obsessed with his binky all the sudden which tells me that I should have taken it away all long time ago. Damn, I mean darn {for some reason that is the ONLY word that explains my frustration with myself}. It is time to take control, but I’m nervous because I think I might like it more than he does. It is INSTANTLY quiet around here if he has it, and the thought of going to church without it … [Read more...]

  First of all, I have to comment on my hubby’s clean shaven head. Don’t you think he looks handsome!?!? I LOVE when he shaves his head like this. :) The other day we were driving down our street and our Brazilian neighbor {I LOVE HER} was standing out on the sidewalk. We pulled over to chat for a bit and she told Dan that he looked “Sooooo sexy” with his hair shaved. I love her accent and it made me smile because … [Read more...]
