Baked Cheesy Penne Dish

Pin It
I first found this recipe over a year ago on Pinterest. I needed to take a noodle side dish to a family dinner and decided I wanted to try something new.
It was a really good dish but I wanted to give it a couple of tweaks, so I've made it since (quite a few times actually), and I feel like I've got it ready enough to share with you all!
So, with out further hesitation I give you the Baked Cheesy Penne dish.
You're welcome 😊

Planter Box Tutorial

Pin It
I love working out in our yard!
Maybe it's because I don't get to do it as often as I like, so when I actually do get out there I've been looking forward to it and I kind of have a plan of what I want to get done.
Today I wanted to share a little upgrade I did for our berry bushes.
On the side of our house we have about a 4 foot wide gap between our house and our neighbor's fence. It receives sunlight all day long, so two years ago we decided to plant some berries along the length of the house. Might as well put that space to use!
We planted two blackberries and one raspberry.
When we first planted these little guys we laid out the garden fabric, to keep weeds from growing, and cut out a little hole around the base of each bush. We then we covered it all with wood chips.
Last year the plants got so tall, and the branches were weighed down with berries, so we tied them up to the white trellises you see pictured.
It worked, but it looked a little messy and I know these plants are just going to get bigger. I wanted the area to look cleaner and have a wide opening at the bottom so it would be easier to water them when needed.
So this is the solution I came up with.

Bird Feeder Craft

Pin It
My middle son is at that magical age of curiosity and fascination.
Age 3 1/2.
I absolutely love it.
He is constantly asking about things he sees and is genuinely curious about everything.
I've wanted to make a bird feeder with him for a while, and a few days ago was warm and sunny so we decided it was the perfect time.
We wanted to make the feeder out of things we already had around the house, and we wanted to make it functional and give the birds a place to sit while they eat.
After a little searching online we put some ideas together and created this little feeder.
I've included pictures and details of how we put this together.
From start to finish it probably took us around 20 minutes.

The Best Pancakes

Pin It
Ok I'm not even joking when I say these pancakes are the best!
These pancakes are soft, fluffy, and delicious.
Try them and you'll see for yourself!
My boys request these pancakes on a regular basis, and since these are so quick and easy to make I don't mind it at all :)

Heart Garland {For less than $5!}

Pin It
For our monthly activity for our Relief Society (women's group) for February we put together a Valentines dance.
This dance was for couples, singles, friends, whomever wanted to come.
I am the one in charge of planning these activities, and after a little brainstorming with my committee (1 other girl), and some scrolling through Pinterest, we had a plan of what we wanted everything to look like.
I took over all of the decor, and I was really excited because I've never really done much in the way of decorating for Valentines, so I was ready to take on this new challenge.
We knew we wanted to do a little photo booth area with props and a simple background.
The background of the photos was just plastic white table cloths from the dollar store, and this heart garland I made.
This is the first garland I've ever made and I was pretty excited with how it turned out!
The nice thing is this garland isn't just for Valentines, you can whip this up for birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
I've got pictures and instructions below for you to see how this all came together.

Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies

Pin It
I love homemade cookies.
Warm from the oven with a nice cold glass of milk...mmmmm.
Can't get much better than that!
These cookies have been a favorite for a while, and I'm excited to share them here on the blog!
It all started one year, a little after Halloween.
My boys had lots of packs of M&M's and I thought this would be a good way to use them up.
We've had a chocolate chip cookie recipe we've used for years, but this time we had decided to add the M&M's and it was magical.

Relief Society Super Saturday

Pin It
First of all, I am well aware that this post is long over due.
At least I'm getting it done people! 
For those of you who aren't familiar with what I'm even talking about here, I'll quickly explain.
Once a year the women's group in our church gets together for a 'Super Saturday' where we basically eat some good food and make some crafts.
Who wouldn't want some of that?!
I am the one in charge of planning this, and I was really excited with what I had come up with.
I had two crafts available for the women to make, and I brought them to church a couple of weeks before our big day so the women could see what we were offering and decide if they wanted to come.
The two crafts I had available for the women was the DIY Temple String Art and the DIY Reversible 2x4 Craft. These linked posts are tutorials to show you how to make each craft.
This post is to show you how we set up everything for our Super Saturday.
