HOMEMADE OREO SPIDER COOKIES


For the past 6 years, we've had a pretty steady tradition of making delicious homemade Spider Oreo Cookies around Halloween time. So when I was thinking of a craft that I wanted to share for the Craft Lightning series, I couldn't think of anything more crafty and delicious!

$350 CASH BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY


The blog world is very different than the real world... When I entered this world 4 months ago, I had no idea what I was doing. I was trying to learn as much as possible, as fast as possible! I was so impressed by the kindness and generosity of so many of the bloggers that I "met."

CHICKEN TAQUITOS WITH AVOCADO DIP


I love these! They are divine... Lunch, dinner, snack... You name it! These are perfect. The first time we had them was when we were preparing to go on a trip to the beach. We didn't want to be worrying about what we were going to eat and didn't want to eat out for every meal--we just can't afford that right now. So I made some easy dinner and snack foods that we could easily prep in the hotel room. These were a hit!

CREAMY AVOCADO PASTA


I love avocado!! It is one of my absolute favorite things to eat. Period. Luckily, both of my kids love avocado, too. It was the one of the first real foods that I gave to both of them when they started eating "real people" food. To this day, Owen (16 months) can eat a whole avocado on his own in one sitting! He loves it!

CREEPY-CRAWLY SENSORY BIN


Last Halloween I made an extremely simple creepy-crawly sensory bin for Lanae that was a huge hit! She couldn't get enough of it! She had just barely turned 2 and it was one of the first sensory bins I had ever made. I was A-MAZED at how well she handled it, then!

FALL SCENTS & TEXTURES SENSORY BIN


I love the scents of fall. I love all of the fun textures. When you walk outside you can see beautiful colors from the leaves changing on the trees... there are acorns and pinecones scattered on the ground. You can feel the change in the air! Well... In some places you can! That's actually one of the biggest thing that I'm missing about the West, right now!

VANISHING JELLY MARBLES


My husband is a Geneticist and he gets really excited about science-y stuff. We did a science date night back in April and it was a blast! I love date nights when both Scott and I are really excited... So I decided that I wanted to put together a couple more Science date nights. I actually haven't gotten around to putting together these date nights, but we have been playing around with some science stuff this last month.
