Today I am sharing a few simple tricks I have picked up from our recent RV trips as well as a few I have learned from years of RVing with my parents. Some are super simple and some will require some trial and error to find what works best for your RV and setup.
It’s Back! The $100 Room Challenge!
I am back at the $100 Room Challenge this month along with a bunch of other great bloggers to transform one room, in one month for $100 dollars. Erin at Lemons, Lavender and Laundry created this challenge and I am so glad to be participating once again. The first room we updated for under $100 was our master bedroom. You can read all about it HERE.
I am sharing a delicious and simple cold pasta salad today that we make several times a summer.
I got this recipe year and years ago from one of those recipe cards that a grocery cashier throws in your bag. I have changed it a little over the years but this remains a family favourite of ours and it is my go to pot luck item to bring because it’s so simple.
A few weeks ago I was in full crafting mode for Penny’s 5th birthday party, her first with her school friends, and I am happy to report that it went off without a hitch! I had made these DIY Kakamora and these Tissue Paper Table Flowers for the occasion. I also made some Tamatoa cupcakes and set 10 kindergartners loose in a local play place.
This is a slightly boring tale about “The Back Corner”. A part of our yard we always pretended wasn’t there. We cropped out of photos, never let the kids near it and hoped the neighbours didn’t notice.
When we moved into our house, the back yard was in terrible shape. Bird baths, bird feeders and rock gardens galore. The back corner of the yard was once a lovely garden (I assume), but was now over grown with brush, weeds and plants and flowers that were not maintained in years. We knew we wanted to remove the long overgrown garden right from the start but it was one of those projects that seemed so impossible and daunting. So naturally, we pushed it off for 6 years.
This post started out as my tips on how to purge your kids school work and neatly store it in a labelled binder. It quickly turned into “How to gush and bawl all over kindergarten artwork and almost save all of it.”
So to salvage some sort of post I will show you how to stuff a mountain of kids art into a regular 2 inch binder and save everything for posterity.
Right now I would say we are mid way through getting our house updated and decorated to suit our family. It’s been a long process and a much slower process then we anticipated. I love when we do a small project that makes a big difference because it holds me over a few more weeks before I am chomping at the bit to get another home update crossed off our list.
If you have ever taken a child, pretty much anywhere, you have heard “I’m booooored”, “Is it time to go home yet?” or the ever popular, “This is so boring!” The latter is favoured by my 4 year old. We are still new to this camping as a family thing, but I have a few years of entertaining bored kids under my belt and what my kids love, is a job. A simple to do list with simple instructions that we can work on together.
Father’s Day is almost upon us and I still have no idea what to get for the man of the house. I still have some time and I am sure the kids and I will cook up something. When we do, we are planning to attach this little gift tag to it to remind him that we love him, appreciate him and we are so happy we get to share life as a family together.
