Royal Design Studio Stencil Review & Closet Makeover

closet makeover tag

These past few weeks have been crazy busy for me.  My kids have been out of school for spring break and that alone makes life crazy. I have had an itch to work on my closet.  It is crazy unorganized, dark and blah. It is huge and can fit 2 full sized mattresses end to end.  Let me also say “I am a blogger and I am unorganized”.  There I said it.  I may need an 8 step program or something.  I am a blogger and I am unorganized. My house is rarely tidy.  I have 4 kids and projects to do. Much more fun than walking around with a dish cloth in my hand all ..day…long. Bless those of you who do.  I am just not that type of person. I would like to be but not enough to give up what makes me happy!  So onto my unorganized closet… and a giveaway!

Tyson Family Meal Night {Cheese Steak Crescents}

Having dinner around the table is important to our family. We eat dinner together at least 5 nights a week. But some nights I am just not in the mood to make anything. I try really hard to keep a menu and plan ahead, but some nights I just don't have it in me. So I checked out Tyson's refrigerated meal products and recipes online. There are so many to choose from. After searching for a bit I came up with this simple and delicious recipe. It came together in minutes and my family loved it! Cheese Steak Crescent Rolls!

Neighborhood Bunny Hop + Printable

Today's original post was an epic fail.  Ever have those??  Well today's was a big one.  So instead I am re sharing my Neighborhood Bunny Hop.  I love holiday ideas that can involve the whole family. With spring just around the corner, it's time to get out and see your neighbors again   Here in Idaho its been a long hard winter.  I think we have gone a little crazy cooped up in the house. If your kids are like mine they will love to make and deliver a secret treat to a neighbor. Not to mention this is a fun family activity. I love seeing how many homes participate in this fun neighborhood pass around. This one is super easy, just make a copy of the printable below. Pair with a treat and deliver.

Secret Easter Bunny + Free Printable

Recently a few of my friends and I started talking about Family Easter Traditions.  Most of my family's are just the normal ones, Easter Baskets, Egg hunt, Nice Dinner.  I have been wanting to start some new ones.  I want my kids to associate certain holidays with their beliefs.   So I came up with the Secret Easter Bunny. Similar to a Secret Santa but an egg hunt of sorts. My kids can pick out some treats and dollar store toys and find joy in serving and helping others. Christmas only comes once a year, but many families need help year round. Or do it to surprise a family you know and love.

So yummy!  Warning you will need to find someone to share these with or you will eat them all.  Also I recommend a tall glass of milk!

BBQ Brisket (Recipe)

It's Brisket season.  My family loves Brisket.  It is one of those meals we have every so often. More, when I can find it on sale. For St. Patty's day we usually have corned beef brisket & cabbage just for a change.  But when we have brisket any other time we use this recipe.  It is delicious. I love that I can prepare it the night before and put it in my crock pot first thing in the morning.  It cooks all day and makes your home smell great. It is fall off the bone good! Serve with Garlic mashed potatoes and Grilled asparagus.  Yum!

Burlap & Tulips...Springtime Decor

I just love springtime! I love the colors, holidays and the thought of summer just around the corner.  Here in Idaho it is still cold. Snow on the ground and more snow is coming. It's just that time of year.  A little gloomy, muddy and grey skies. I need a little spring time decor. What better way to do that than to add some colorful flowers to my front door for under $10!

Let's talk toilet paper holder covers...

 So tell me if this is you. You go to the bathroom for a self imposed time out.  You should have been put in time out and hour ago,  but alas the kids wouldn't allow it.  You finally get your time out and you realize part way through you are out of toilet paper. Sound familiar??? Then you have to all to one of your kids...to interrupt you time out to bring you some toilet paper. Well your quiet time out is over..
This is a weekly problem at my house.  My Master Bath is about the only place I get a little quiet during the day.  Maybe 5 minutes a few times a day.
So one day I was perusing my local Ross and found this... A toilet paper holder tower.
