Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend!  We spent ours resting, relaxing and spending time with friends and family.  Saturday night my parents were kind enough to babysit while we went to an absolutely delicious dinner and then to see a movie, Planet of the Apes, which I surprisingly really enjoyed.  It has been a while since we have done that since our little guy isn’t old enough for the theater yet, so it was a big treat!  This week we are back to work on the house and hoping to actually complete a room.

Today I am sharing an easy project that we finished last week.  I am so happy with the results of this DIY door frame chalkboard!

Laundry Room Inspiration

Welcome to the weekend! Woohoo! I am a stay at home mom, so the weekend doesn’t mean exactly the same thing to me as it did when I worked 40+ hours a week.  For me, it does mean that my husband will be home to help me, and I might even sneak in a cat nap or two.

We have actually had Vacation Bible School this week which meant that we did have to be up, dressed and out the door early every morning.  It was nice in some ways to get up and going, but some mornings it was a bit hectic getting out the door.  I have major respect for moms of all walks of life, but this week made me wonder how on earth full time working moms with multiple children of all ages get anywhere on time! I am seriously impressed with you ladies.

One thing that made it a bit more challenging for me this week was that since moving into this house two months ago, I still haven’t taken the time to get my laundry room in order.  I mean it is in working order, but not very organized or well thought out.  It is just a grey room with generic baskets and too much clutter which makes me want to drop things off and run.

Blueberry Peach Smoothie

I remember when I was in elementary school, one of my favorite places to eat with my friends was Pizza Hut.  Yes, my tastes in food have significantly matured, thank goodness.  One of the reasons we liked it so much was because they had the self serve drink machines where you could fill your cup all by yourself with whatever combo you wanted.  It was super cool to run down the line getting a little bit of everything and making weird mixtures.  Kids are so weird.

Even though, I now prefer water with lemon to disgusting soft drink concoctions, I do sort of follow the same concept when I’m making smoothies.  Gotta get my thrills somewhere!  Whenever I am in the mood for a smoothie, I just look around my kitchen for whatever ingredients I have on hand and throw them in the blender with a little ice.  The great thing about smoothies is that almost always works out!
