The Swiffer Effect is REAL!

Hi guys!!  Do you love these Swiffer commercials as much as I do?  I'm convinced that Brent and I will be the Kaufmans in 40 years -- him drifting off like Morty as I ramble on about how much I like this or that.  They are really entertaining commercials, which you can't often say.  But I always watch TV commercials with a healthy dose of skepticism, thinking the products can't possibly work as well or look or taste as good in real life.  So I was thrilled -- and very pleasantly surprised -- when I got a couple of those big green boxes on my door step so I could see for myself and share with a friend.

Strawberry Sandwich Cookies

Strawberry Sandwich Cookies at
Hi guys!  I had a free afternoon last weekend, so of course I took the opportunity to bake up some yumminess for my family {while watching a Lifetime movie -- don't judge}.  One of my favorite easy treats to make are cake mix sandwich cookies.  There are a million different flavor combos you can make.  They're like the poke cake of the cookie world!  {Mmmmm . . . poke cake . . . next time. }  I usually resort to the classic Oreo version -- chocolate cookies with vanilla frosting -- but this time I wanted something a little different.  That's how these strawberry sandwich cookies were born.

Book Page Garland on Craftaholics Anonymous Today

Book Page Garland Tutorial by
Hi guys!  My post for August is up over at Craftaholics Anonymous today.  Since last month's chalkboard project was so labor and tool intensive, I decided to go with something easy-breezy this month.  No special tools required -- just a word processing program and a home printer.  I have made several of these book page garlands this summer -- for my dining room, for a baby shower, and most recently for my office at work.  I never, ever get tired of them.  If you are looking for some serious bang for your decorating buck, this is where it's at!

Hop on over to Craftaholics Anonymous today to get the full tutorial, then come back here tomorrow for a delicious sweet treat.

Have a great day, my friends!

Oven Chicken Fajitas

Recipe for delicious Oven Chicken Fajitas at
Hello, friends.  I know I'm beating a dead horse by bringing up my job again, but, you guys!  This working full time is kicking my butt.  I used to have hours upon hours of "free time"  to blog and craft and bake before my family came home at night and I had to start in on my "job" of mothering and wife-ing.  Now I spend hours upon hours taking care of other people's children before coming home and throwing something together to eat, starting a load of laundry, and falling straight into bed.  I am loving my job, but I am finding that I really need to streamline my chores here at home.  A great way to do that is by using Reynolds Oven Bags when I cook dinner.

Recipe Organization and Meal Planning Binder

Recipe Organization and Meal Planning Binder at
Hi guys!  I have to tell y'all . . . cooking is one of my least favorite chores.  Well, that's not entirely true.  I enjoy the cooking.  It's the meal planning that I struggle with.  Having to come up with something yummy to put on the table seven nights a week is a cruel form of torture to me.  Even when I have found a bunch of new recipes via Pinterest and I know what I want to make, I can never find the recipes again when I need them.  At least not easily.
