• Project: Have Fun with it Friday: End of school Year Tradition {Good-bye 1st Grade, Hello 2nd Grade! Hello Preschool!}
Hayden had just completed 1st grade and Morgan will be doing another year of preschool (so hers just said “Hello Preschool”). It was a cute thing for the girls to wake up to on their last day of school to find these cute popsicle sticks in their breakfast!!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
• Time: 5 minutes
• Would I do it again? yes! the smile on the girls faces was priceless…sometimes it’s the little things that they remember 🙂
• What I would do differently: Wish I would have started this when Hayden was in Preschool!
• Items used: Card Stock, Popsicle sticks, and adorable printable from: Crayon Wishes and Popsicle Dreams

• Project: Tidy it Thursday: My new Weekly & Monthly Cleaning Schedules with Free Printables!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1 for making the cleaning schedules, and 4 to keep up with it on a weekly and monthly basis!
• Time: 10 minutes to customize the cleaning schedules and a lot more time to complete them 😉
• Would I do it again? yes! I really need schedules…for some reason I like to know I completed what I had set out for that day, even something as simple as cleaning! For me, it works a lot better to do a daily chore/task each day versus one day committed to cleaning the whole house. I’d rather have my Saturday and Sunday to play and do fun things with my girls!
• What I would do differently: nothing except I should have done this cute schedule sooner!
• Items used: Adorably cute printables from: Money Saving Mom and Blooming Homestead

Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1, so easy!

• Would I do it again? most definitely! We love Mexican food in our house and have it at least twice per week, so this was a HIT!
• What I would do differently: see above, and I would do it that way again- why not!
Don’t you just love how much sour cream I put on mine…oh yes I did that 🙂
• Items used: super easy and delicious recipe from:   Tasty Kitchen    Head on over to her site for all of the details, you will like it!
