 Recently, I told all of you on INSTAGRAM that I don’t love Halloween. I used to love it when I was little because we would trick or treat! But now.. I do it for the kids! And the Reese's PB cups.. obvi…  but I love watching the kids enjoy the day! Part of the fun comes in the little details.. the small things.. the ones that make you smile. 


Which leads me to.. our Halloween Tablescape!! From witch hats to cauldrons, to pumpkins to spiderwebs.. Im sharing all the things I got for our Halloween Table display here! 🦇 Most everything I got was right off of Amazon and if you’d prefer to shop my whole Halloween decor page, you can CLICK HERE.

DIY backyard String lights in 5 steps!

Wednesday, August 11, 2021

No comments
When I tell you I've wanted patio string lights in my back yard for YEARS.. And you guys.. I finally made it happen this year to my patio! There's just something magical about a string of lights strung above your head! In this post, I'll share the method I think would be the easiest for anyone wanting to do this as well! And that's not even the best part!! The best part is, you can do this anywhere you can dig a hole and you have power! AND you can make it happen in 5 easy steps!!!


1. Dig a hole.

2. Screw hooks into place near the top of your posts. I used THESE POSTS, and THESE HOOKS.

3. Set your post in the hole and Pour concrete around it. Stabilize the post so it stays level. 
PS you want your concrete to have a pancake consistency when you pour in the hole. 
Make sure your hooks are facing the right way!!

4. After the concrete dries, secure the posts in the concrete with metal brackets.

5. String lights! I USED THESE. Plug in and voila!! Magical string lights!
Ok, but what's better than string lights, you ask? How about string lights on a SCHEDULE!! I partnered with Lutron Electronics to share how Caséta by Lutron can help you around your home! I added the Caséta outdoor smart plug, synced it with our Caséta Smart Bridge, so that I could put these lights on a schedule through the app! So now, when the sun starts to go down here, our string lights turn on! And then when we are settling in for bed, they turn off. HOW CONVENIENT IS THAT?! I don't even have to think about it!! Click the words in this sentence to go to the LUtron website to find more info! 

if you were following along on the 'gram, you know I did things a little differently than I described.. But.. trust me.. the way above would be easier.. I've linked the quick overview Reel on the 'gram HERE if you want to see.

And as always I want to see the creations you make so if you want to share, send me pics or tag me! 
Until next time, happy creating!!

Back to School With Shein!

Friday, July 9, 2021

No comments
It's that time of year again... When we spend all the money to clothes and supply our children for school again... Let's just hope they actually GO to school this year, amiright?! Here's to hoping! 

My kids have been in uniforms for all of their education so far, and we recently made the switch to public school. Which means, BTS shopping!!! My kids are super excited.. My bank account, not so much. hahaha! 

Anyway, Maddie (my 11 yr old) recently became obsessed with Shein... and I was SO hesitant to order from there.. (you never know with these online shops, right??) We did a small-ish order at the start of summer, and I have to say.. for kids clothes, I was impressed... I'd rather not spend a ton of kids clothes because 1. they grow so fast and clothing only fits for a short time.. and 2. their style are all so different!  So even if I did like to buy pricier things, my younger kids may not even wear the hand me downs! So, take it or leave it, I opt for the less pricey clothing..

I rounded up our Shein haul here for you to check out! Who knows, your kids might like these things too!
(Also, I added in the things we got earlier this year too.)


I grouped these links in to categories so it's easier for you to find and click things

2-Piece sets

Shirts

Bottoms

Jumpers/Dresses

Summer Chore Chart

No comments

It's SUMMERTIME!!! Also, known as the time that "my kids tear apart the house" time... yayyyyy.... 

But I need to let you in on a little secret... I refuse to clean up after my kids all day long... Why you ask? I'm their mother after all.. Well, yes, you're right.. EXCEPT I'm not their maid. So as soon as my oldest could understand the phrase "let's put toys away" he started helping. Same with my girls. 

And ALSO.. another secret.. the summer is often the time that my house is the CLEANEST. During the school year, when the kids leave messes around, and this sometimes drives me CrAzY, I wait for them to come home and clean up.. This is because if I am constantly cleaning up after them, they will come to expect someone else to clean up their messes when they become adults. Do I clean them up sometimes? Yes. Do I put their dishes in the dishwasher for them sometimes? Of course! But if it's something that can wait til they get home, I let it wait.

All that said, I got LOTS of questions about my kids chore charts. Keep in mind, that my younger two are still being trained on how to clean and I often have to help them get their stuff done. But they quickly learnt that if they can do it themselves, they will get done WAY faster. 

OK, before I move on, I need to credit my friend Brittany for being a motherhood genius and sharing all her ideas with me.. She gave me this idea and then we tweaked it to what works for our family.

First, I divided the house into 4 sections because I have four kids. (When my younger two are totally self sufficient, I'll add another and give myself a section) We call these "Zones" and we are in charge of our zone for an entire week. I break down what needs to be done daily and weekly and then after the weekly Saturday clean-up, we rotate zones.

All right now, without further ado, you will find our chore chart below! Feel free to take the idea and tweak it to fit your own family needs. I added some notes in a different font next to the chores as needed.




 Kitchen/Dining Room Zone

Daily:

  • Clear/wash counters, after each meal BUT individuals are in charge of their own place settings.

  • Load dishes

  • Make sure you vacuum under the furniture

  • Shake entryway rug outside

  • Vacuum floor before you put the rug back, then vacuum rug.



Some of these jobs require supervision with my little kids, but my older kids know what is expected and usually get it done really quickly. They know if they are done then they can go play!

So, below I added in a little bit about age appropriate jobs.. This is a very loose list.. Some kids can do certain things earlier than others. And some kids can't. That's the beauty of life! 


Age specific jobs

  • Ages 1-2: help put toys away. Throw trash away. Dirty clothes in laundry, help switch laundry, Put pillows on the couch. 

  • Ages 3-4: match socks, dust things low to the ground, put clothes away, unload groceries and help put them away,.. (really they can do any type of putting things away- books, toys, clothes, etc) Set table, Help make their bed especially when you have Beddys.. Feed pets, wipe cabinets, Water plants, help sweep, sort laundry, Wipe glass surfaces, help cook (they are amazing at stirring), toilet bowls.

  • Ages 5-7: Unload dishwasher, wash some dishes, vacuum, Empty trash, wipe counters, clean toilets.

  • Ages 8-9: Pull weeds, Organize toys, load dishwasher, wash tub/shower.

  • Ages 10-12: prepare simple meals, Take pets for walks, Wash/dry own clothes, pack lunch, mow lawn

  • Age 13+: at this point, a child really can do much/most of the household chores if you take the time to teach them.



Last but definitely not least! I added our daily task list here!

In the summer, our daily task timing is very loose.. Sometimes we throw reason out the

window and just choose to have a fun play day!




Thanks for reading! I would love to hear how all this helps you in your home!

Send me a message or tag me on the 'gram so I can cheer you on!
