It has been so cold in our town that this 40 degree day felt amazing! We needed to get out of the house and since Luchi is sitting up on her own now I figured she would have a ball in the swing at the park! She loved it!! We bundled her up and brought her over the bridge to a park I went to as a kid. She watched some other kids play, which is her favorite thing to do, and had a nice first ride in the swing while Mommy and Daddy took pictures!
In between homework and chores, Mommy and Luchi have been having tons of fun in the kitchen! Luchi had some homemade sweet potato mash and Mommy had a fruity salad and roasted chick peas for lunch! Girls gotta eat! This amazing new popcorn I found has been in a bowl by my computer screen for some of the morning as well! What an awesome snack! Eat whole foods and feel amazing!
I just piled anything fresh I had into a bowl to create this masterpiece. Apples, raspberries, tomatoes, avocado, peppers, feta, and spring mix topped with raspberry walnut dressing.
These are just organic garbanzo beans from a can, rinsed, dried, tossed in 1 tbsp of olive oil, baked for 25 mins at 400 degrees and then sprinkled with spices of your choice! (I used 1/2 tsp of each, salt, coriander, paprika, and garlic powder) They are crunchy and delicious! 4 points plus for 1/2 cup.
Look at those little teeth!! I love this baby!!
We are going to finish our Valentine’s this evening…stay tuned for that post!
A fun song for a rainy, Sunday morning…. click here or click photo!
Working on lots of projects today…stay tuned…
While working on any project, especially a very specific project, I like to have all of my supplies laid out in front of me. I recently accomplished ribbon visualization and accessibility with my ribbon organization project so I moved on to organize the small pieces that I attach to the centers of some of the hair bows I make!
There is nothing proprietary about this project. This post is probably not going to change your life. BUT this project is fun, pretty, and functional, so why not share?
I went to Wal-Mart and picked up a few small plastic containers. I got 2 larger (17 compartment) containers and 2 smaller (7 compartment) containers. I also found a few packages of adorable stickers (12 per pack for $1, wahoo!) to label the containers.
I created categories, sorted the pieces, stuck the stickers to the tops of the containers, and labeled them with my label maker!
If I find the perfect, rectangular basket to fit these into, I will purchase that basket… in the meantime, I am okay with these bins sitting stacked on a shelf in my craft closet!
*If you want to get really fancy, you could measure, cut, and glue pieces of scrapbook paper into the bottoms of these compartments!
Thanks for reading!
