DIY playhouse going up. I'll take more pics and keep you updated as the hubs has time to build. Following this little plan for inspiration. We have a narrow space so we have to improvise and change it up a bit. Super excited for my kiddos to have a little place to hang. We are putting in a bottom floor and top floor. Bottom floor is in! (Follow my Instagram for quicker updates).
Need a weekend activity for the kiddos? Homemade playdough. Check. Gather, blend, stir & play. Easy.
Ingredients 1/2 c of salt 1 c of water 2 tbsp of cream of tartar 1 c of flour 1 tbsp of oil Food coloring
Directions Mix flour, salt, tartar and oil in a pan Mix water with the food coloring Add water/color mixture to other ingredients and stir Cook on medium heat for 4-5 minutes, constantly stirring When it becomes doughy, remove from heat and start kneading (hot, be careful) When texture is achieved, time to play! Store in container or ziplock
Yes, I know Marsala is in, but butter in coffee? hmmmm... did I miss this one? I prefer to add a spoon full of coconut oil (OR homemade Kaklua), but I guess if I'm out, then butter is a good alternative? Read up a little on bulletproof. Eh, I think I'd puke a little if I drank that.
Coconut oil only for me. Yes, I still use it for many things. And no new updates on all of my experiments with it. Only in the fact that I added coffee creamer to my list awhile ago. It's healthy, delicious and the smell takes me to the beach.
...or if you prefer a butter latte, then go for it.
Hi 2015. Hoping for a good year! The last month kicked me in the ass. Literally with flu bugs, (yes that's plural) ear infections, overtired all around, laziness. Been sucked in by the winter blahs. I need a new, fresh, optimistic year. Feeling defeated. Maybe it's the weather? Where is our snow? I'd rather have sun or snow in this January gloom. No more rain please!
Looking to do several new things this year. So, what do you want to see from 52? Or rather, where should I take it? With Ali n M Photography happening, I'm trying to figure out direction and time management. And while I'm figuring out web building on my own time, hit us up on our Facebook page if you want to schedule anything or have questions. We will be more professional soon. :) We just booked some sport stuff in Spring and Summer but want to do Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter mini sessions. We'll spread that news soon. Send me a message if you want to be on our email list.
2015... to more family time, more friend time, more cooking, more outdoor play, more adventures, more risk. Perhaps new recipes, new hobbies, volunteer. New chores. There is always a list. Most importantly, being more present to my husband and kiddos.
Here's to dreaming into the future. Happy belated New Year!
