Pinterest Challenge – Easy Peasy Egg Muffins

Pinterest Challenge – Easy Peasy Egg Muffins

Finding foods that I can make and serve all week is a goal.  When I saw this pin with egg muffins that would keep five days in the fridge I was in.  It turns out that these are super easy and a great way to get G involved.  I prepped the ingredients and G did the rest. He put some red peppers and spinach in each cup.  I poured egg on it.  G then topped them with bacon and Daiya…

Pinterest Challenge – Borax to the rescue!

Pinterest Challenge – Borax to the rescue!

I’d planned on trying a new recipe today, but G had a friend come over and then Ohio State was on (I really should have skipped this) and I didn’t get to the grocery store.  So, I browsed Pinterest and thought why not make some homemade household cleaners?  I looked at a few pins and realized I didn’t have a few of the ingredients that made the good stuff.  So, I pooled all of my natural cleaners together to see…

Pinterest Challenge- Meal Planning

Pinterest Challenge- Meal Planning

Those of you who have known us for at least the last few years know that G has dietary challenges.  His diet is a moving target that changes drastically too often.  Once I get a handle on what we’re doing to heal him, something forces us to change.  Breakfast and lunch we all eat something different during the week and I try to cook us all three the same thing for dinner.  I am terrible at planning!  I get a…

Pinterest Challenge – Fall Leaves

Pinterest Challenge – Fall Leaves

I usually get into fall decorating, but have been too overwhelmed with other things to take the time and now it’s almost time to decorate for Christmas.  I thought I could choose a few simple things this next week.  I went for a quick one today since I’m still putting my office back together from yesterday! I saw this pin and immediately pictured the leaves on my front door.  I also thought I had an unopened bag of those leaves…

Pinterest Challenge

After taking October off, my first without a challenge in a year, I wanted to ease back in with something fun and useful.  Thirty days, thirty Pinterest pins.  You can follow me there and see what I’m pinning.  I’d like to do a combination of crafts, recipes, home stuff, organization, decorating…pretty much whatever strikes my fancy that day. As I was looking around yesterday I found this pin and I was inspired by the blogger’s bravery since she was willing…

Book A Day Challenge, Year 2 – We did it!

Book A Day Challenge, Year 2 – We did it!

Woo hoo!!!!!!  G and I were 30 for 30 this month!  This year, maybe because I tried to focus my reading on memoirs and classics, was more difficult than last year, when I chose what to read on a whim.  G was so happy when he finished his last book this month, wanna see? He finished strong with I Love Mom with the Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.  He read way too easy books BUT he is now in…

Book a Day Challenge – Days 26-28

Coming down to the wire.  I need to finish two tomorrow so we’ll see if I can do it.  I’ve got a few started but none of them are grabbing me so I may have to rely on a few super short ones. G and I took turns reading Clifford Sees America.  He read one half one day and then the other half the next day.  He felt proud of himself, but still tends to be too hard on himself…

Book A Day Challenge Days 24 & 25

Book A Day Challenge Days 24 & 25

It’s going to be an exciting finish.  We’ll see if I can make it to 30! G read two Eric Carle books, Today is Monday, which was hard, and The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, which wasn’t.  But both super fun and he liked them. I listened to Yes Please by Amy Pohler.  She read it along with a few friends helping her along the way: Kathleen Turner, Seth Meyers, Patrick Stewart, Carol Burnett, her parent, and probably one…

Book a Day Challenge – Day 23

Book a Day Challenge – Day 23

I could do more reviews, but I’ve got to wait until G gets home to catch up on the pictures of the books we’ve read. G read I See A Cat and it was fun and easy and he enjoyed it. I read What Would Martin Say? by Clarence B. Jones and Joel Engel. I think I won this copy in a giveaway when it first came out…in 2008.  It looked interesting, but not interesting enough.  Now that I’ve finished…

Book a Day Challenge – 20-22, Good Stuff

Book a Day Challenge – 20-22, Good Stuff

Okay, okay, I need catch up this week since day 30 is fast approaching.  I am one book behind.  Not panicking yet, but I’m close.  I made use of shorter books these past few days so that’s helped my sense of accomplishment.  Maybe next year I’ll do a graphic novel a day. G read Fly High, Fly Guy! by Tedd Arnold. This was to be read for school and he read it to his Grandma. Last week when I took…
