General Conference Treat Buckets

I'm just loving this idea I saw on {Brown Paper Packages}!
She got these dollar buckets and labeled them with words often used in {General Conference
Then, she filled each bucket with a different kind of candy. 
Then, she lined them up on the hearth in the room where her family would be watching Conference. 
So, if the kids listened, every time they heard the word on one of the buckets, they could go get a piece of candy from that bucket. 
Great lesson on listening...very motivational I think! :) 
We used to keep a tally of different words said, just by marking them down on paper...I think this candy business would help kids pay attention longer than we used to. :)
I just love this idea!!

April Fool's Cupcakes

With April Fools a few days away, I thought I'd share some fun little ideas with you.
Love these silly cupcakes!  Spaghetti is actually just frosting put on using a really small tip.  And the meatballs are those Ferrero Rocher chocolates dipped in strawberry jam.  Cute right!? 
The mashed potatoes are just frosting spread on evenly with a well on the top.  The gravy is carmel sauce and the butter could either be a yellow starburst or a now n later.  So cute! 
The peas and carrots are my favorite!!  The peas are just green runts and the carrots are orange starbursts cut into 4ths.  Doesn't that look awesome!!?
Tricky, Tricky!!  Check out even more foolin ideas at {Our Best Bites}

Breezy Nursery

I love the breezy feel of this nursery.  The blue is gorgeous!  But, I also love the elements within the nursery as well. 
Love the tricycle! 
This wall is really cool.  Shall we take a closer look? 
They're pictures of the alphabet...kind of like flash cards, framed.  Really cute. 
Just simple, and nice, and breezy.  Via {House of Turquoise}.

Family Play Room

I like rooms that can be kids rooms and adult rooms at the same time.
Like this potterybarn movie room.  So cute with the alphabet above, but the colors still keep it sophisticated and not too kiddish. 
However, a few kiddish things are nice...I mean, there ARE still kids around. :)
Love the way those legos are organized~ each color has it's own matching storage bucket!
A nice looking coffee table can be the perfect play table, too.  And that tent back there is so awesome!
I'm loving the wall of storage in this room.  So nice looking!  And also so practical! 
This is one of my favorites!!  Love that theater.  How cute!!  Any family would love to have something like that!! 
This is just a perfect family game area.  Love all the storage, even under the table! 
Potterybarn really has things together, don't they!?
One day, I imagine a basement or rec room looking like all these rooms put together. :)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

If you're lame like me and made the waffles this morning BEFORE realizing it was St. Patrick's Day which CLEARLY means those waffles should have been green, and are just beside yourself with how easy it would have been to add some food coloring if you had ONLY remembered - ! - it's ok, you can still make a fun Leprechaun Lunch for your family.  Just head on over to {Gourmet Mom on the Go} for this great little idea.
Nothing too hard here!  Just some green food coloring in milk and frosting.  And a gold coin...  Isn't this super fun!!  Love it and I'm sure the kids will too. :)
