Do I Really Have to Go? Printable BINGO Cards

Tell me I am not the only one who dreads taking kids out to run errands.... I love spending time with my children, don't get me wrong, but for some reason, the second we get out in public they turn in to different little people. 

They whine, they fight, they're hungry, they're bored, they don't want to go, their feet hurt, someone poked them, "they're looking at me"... and so on. Today I had to take my kiddos out for a quick errand, so I thought I'd make something fun for them to do while I shop.

DIY Paint Review -- Painted Dresser Tutorial

Before we purchased our "fixer upper" home, my husband and I were managers of a small apartment complex near a local college. We managed the apartments there for almost 4 years before we had saved up enough to purchase our first (and current) home.

One of the benefits to being the managers was checking out what our renters left behind after they moved. We collected a few pieces of furniture over the few years we were there and one of the best ones we ever found was a beautiful, solid wood, HEAVY, dresser. We used it in our tiny master bedroom before moving out here. It has 6 drawers on the sides, and three drawers in the middle door. It's old and beautiful.

But, over the years the top part, which was laminate, was starting to peel off. One of the sides had built in tie/belt hooks ... that we never used. It needed a little TLC. So, when I decided to redo our master bedroom, I also decided this dresser needed an overhaul.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cupcake Recipe

I feel like I'm posting a TON of recipes lately... maybe it has something to do with being at home all day, everyday, with my family. It's the perfect time to find, develop, and test new recipes. Plus, there is nothing better than chocolate chip anything, am I right?

Today's recipe was actually a request of my husband. I was in the mood to do some baking and texted him at work asking if he wanted cookies or cupcakes. His reply was to make chocolate chip cupcakes. Done!
