I want it to be interactive with my kids so they can learn how to cook - Get their hands messy in the flower, help me measure out the water, hear the timer buzz and yell out “Mom, food’s ready!” But I also have to be realistic . Some days that’s not an option.. sometimes I just need it to be quick and simple ! Here's a recipe you can do with your kids or super fast to serve to your kids! This is my son’s favorite Sargento® Colby-Jack cheese slices rolled up in dough, baked, and voila.... cheesy bread dunkers! Grab your marinara sauce and dunk these delicious cheesy bread pieces! PIZZA DUNKERS! Here’s what you’ll need ——  • 1 pack of Sargento® Colby-Jack Cheese Slices  • 1 can of your preferred biscuits  • 1 jar of your preferred marinara  Here are the quick directions ——  • Preheat oven to temp.

  • Home Decor Switch Up - Changing A Few Things Around Your House Will Give It A Whole New Vibe! When you have a new guest at your home what is the one thing you want? I want them to be comfortable! I want them to say - “It feels so homey in here!” I think the moment I was able to walk I started to rearrange! I’m obsessed with a fresh vibe! Once a month, every week I mean there’s no judgment here! Well, maybe from my husband who I’m constantly pulling in 5 directions! But that’s okay, he secretly loves it! Here are easy tips to change things up New Wall Decor doesn't have to be crazy expensive! I'm obsessed with Hobby Lobby and I'm always checking their orange/red tag! You don't have to wait for it to be on clearance! They have 50% every other week on their full price items! Still don't want to wait? Check their website for a 40% off coupon! “This is my happy place” was on clearance for $9 this is one of my favs! Always check for coupons before shopping! Before you leave the house - ALWAYS CHECK THE INTERNET FOR COUPONS! This is like a no brainer for me now! So many stores have them! Take advantage! Hobby Lobby has a 40% coupon you can use on a full price item! DO YOU HAVE 3 FULL PRICED ITEMS? Have your partner check out! Have your child check out! Then you check out! BAM 40% OFF EVERYTHING! � � Avoid returns and frustration - Plan It Out There's nothing worse [okay there's some things worse] than getting so excited about a bunch of stuff, getting it home and realizing you didn't actually plan it out. Before you go shopping take a look at the space you want to transform! Does it need paint? Wall decor? Some plants? Lighting? What about a throw blanket or a new pillow? Make sure to have a well thought out plan so you don't have returns or product left UN-used! Draw it up if needed! It will get you even more excited about your project! Have an open mind My Husband and I are completely opposite when it comes to the "feel" of our home! My husband wants it light and bright where I would like it to be more like a sanctuary. Where it's darker and more intimate. When we were shopping for curtains we were all over the place! Then I came across a frosted shower curtain... Now hear me out! It gave us the privacy we needed but the frosted/clear look makes the entire house light up but still gives me this sanctuary feel! We both ended up getting what we wanted and NEVER would I have thought about shower curtains unless Big Lots didn't have them on the end cap my son ran into. � � Adding plants to your space I have 47 plants INSIDE my home! This is obviously my favorite! Plants release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, helping purify the air in your home! PLUS, they just help make me feel better! I'm a Utah local and I get most of my plants from Harmon's Grocery Store Moving around decor you already own This is my fav because you don't even need to spend money or leave the house! You can switch around table top decor Switch around your throw pillows and throw blankets Change around your shelf decor I hope this inspires you to give your home a fresh new vibe!

  • Barefoot Parenting Chances are high when you hear barefoot parenting your first thoughts are...  a bunch of hippies breastfeeding their babies with their shoes off... am I right?  I feel like this a new term that needs some positive light shed on it.  I’m Lindsey and my parenting style is “barefoot” - I’m a Mom of 2. My Son is 3.5 and my Daughter is 1! When you’re a Mom of 1 people often say “oh you’re a new mom !" Well, when I was having my second child I was like - NOW PEOPLE CAN'T SAY THIS TO ME! Honestly, I had my daughter and I was more clueless then when I had my first. 2 kids was a whole new ball park!  I never had a particular parenting style in my head... I was winging it and it was shaping up to be chaos. Then I had a life altering experience.  My cousin passed away at the age of 28.  28 years young.  That’s when I said.. what if my kids only have 28 years.  I almost can't breathe while I type this out. I would want those 28 years to be magical.  M.A.G.I.CA.L. So that’s when I started changing the way I parent. Sometime I think people give “barefoot parenting” a bad rap. It’s not raising children to be disrespectful in any way. I’m very strict when it comes to that. I want my children to live a life of purpose. To be successful because they were never afraid to fail.  I want them to know they bring value to this world so when someone tells them differently, they won’t believe it because they know themselves.  I want them to question the world but accept change. That’s the only way we will grow.  I want my kids to be organic and own who they are.  I want to listen to them and understand their little minds.  When my partner and I need advice I want to be able to go to my children to get a different perspective.  Does that sound crazy to you? I just want them to feel like their opinion matters.  I want to get on their level and see the world from their eyes.  I just don’t want people to get it twisted with “these parents don’t care”  I care a whole heck of a lot I just go about it differently than you. I won't judge you for your parenting style, please just take a look inside of mine. One memory that has forever stuck with me.. When I was a teenager in high school one morning my Mom came into my room and said “why aren’t you getting ready for school?” I said “I just don’t have it in me today.” She looked at me and said “Take a vacation day.” That has stuck with me MY ENTIRE LIFE. She understood I needed a moment. I needed to be alone with myself. I need a day. Hell, I might have needed two.. She gave that to me. She could have said GET READY! GO TO SCHOOL! But she understood me. One day wasn’t going to ruin my academic career! But that one day did a hell of a lot to for my mental health. Kids need mental health days too. The biggest thing I have taken away from my childhood is be proud. Every single day my Mom would say " make me proud " Every day I would strive to do so. Own who you are and be proud of the person you are. Live life by the golden rule. "do unto others as you would have them do unto you."  I’m a huge believer that it all starts in your home! Talk to your children like they understand, because they do- or they will.  My barefoot parenting is what keeps me sane. I want my child’s opinion. I want them to know their voice matters while understanding their father and I are here to make the best decision for them. Crazy as this sounds but I want them to be barefoot and accidentally stub their toe so they feel why they have to wear shoes. I can say it until I'm blue in the face.. How many time have you said "I needed to experience it before I really understood.." Goes for all aspects in life. I want my kids to jump into the mud puddle and feel it squish through their toes. Smell like a puppy dog because they were drenched in vitamin D all day. Fall asleep at the dinner table because you had such an eventful day! I want them to be productive members of society and I hope what I’m doing works. There’s no play book when every home and heart is different. Remember you don’t see the world as it is, you see it as you are. Think how you want to live. If my child only had 28 years... #happy, #healthy #parenting #barefootparenting I hope I was able to shed some light on our Barefoot parenting. What's your parenting style?
