Chocolate peppermint popcorn

This was so easy and awesomely delicious! 

Pop your unflavored kernel popcorn in an air popper or over the stove! Melt some chocolate chips and crush some peppermint candy canes. Place the popped popcorn on a cookie sheet and drizzle with the melted chocolate, then sprinkle with the candy cane bits! Let cool (if you have self control, I do not ;) Break it up and put into baggies to enjoy!

No-Sew Tie-Fleece Blanket

Can't get enough of these tie-fleece blankets this year! 

So far I have made one of each for my girls, one for a friend and now the hubs has requested one too :) Anyone else?! Oh yeah maybe me ;) Haha

They are super easy to do, just a little time consuming! But worth the time :) they are so soft and cozy!  Makes for good multitasking while watching my dvr shows ;)

I used 1.5 yards for the girls with a pattern on one side and solid on the other.

For the adult size I would suggest 2.5-3 yards :)

The I just did a quick YouTube search for the easy step by step instructions (there are a bunch).

Happy Father's Day Art

For Father's Day I decided to look to Pinterest for some inspiration on an art project we could do for Daddy. I ended up finding some great ideas for hand print art and these are the ones we ended up doing. 





The kiddos loved making them so I went back to Pinterest for some others we can do this summer! Check it out :) feel free to follow me http://pinterest.com/Bigsislilsisluv/

Sibling Day :)

After a few super windy days here, my allergies are kicking my bum, but we had to get out to enjoy the beautiful warm weather today :) it was teetering on hot actually. Not sure of the elevation here, but it definitely feels closer to the sun ;)

These two cool chicks were ready to go to the park for our first play date! They requested their sunnies for the walk and posed very willingly for this pic ;) It was so nice to see them being so sweet to each other today, especially since I found out later it was national sibling day! Take the time to tell your siblings how much you love and appreciate them, even those ones that are like siblings in your life :)

Acorn Kisses

Aren't they adorable!! A friend of mine gave me this great idea and I'm not sure where she found the idea, but here is how I did it :))

Just melt some chocolate chips for your "glue" and attach a Hershey kiss to the flat side of the mini nilla wafer. Then attach a chocolate chip to the top. (I used regular, but mini ones would work too). Put in the fridge for the melted chocolate to harden and then they are ready to serve :))

For the plate (dollar store) I just decorated it with theme foam stickers I found for fall!!

Such a quick and easy fall dessert! Fun for kids and adults :)

Happy Thanksgiving
