{Plans for St. Patty's Day}

So, as St. Patrick's Day gets closer I am trying to decide what fun things to do for my kids. I have seen some way cute ideas on Pinterest lately and thought I would share them with you in case you are also looking for ideas.

This would be super simple and a huge hit at our house. To drink green milk and eat their favorite cereal would be their favorite thing in the world

How cute are these little treat bags? I am totally going to hide one of these for each of my kids somewhere in the house and let them go on a scavenger hunt to find them. My plan is to say that a "Leprechaun" dropped them off for us!

I am not really a huge baker but I think even I can handle making these cookies!

And this will definitely be happening at our house. Our family loves sprite floats of any sort so we'll throw this drink in there for sure!

So there's some ideas to get me started. Do you have any fun traditions that you do in your household for St. Patrick's Day? What are your plans for this year? We would love to hear your thoughts!

{Sheri's Cleaning Schedule}

I have been in search of an amazing cleaning schedule for way too long. And now I am so happy to tell you that I have found it!!

Motivated Moms 2012 is a pre-planned checklist of chores that will allow you to have a clean, organized home and still have time for yourself. No need for huge cleaning days - just do the chores, check them off and you are done for the day!

Key features:
• All tasks in the average home are planned out for you throughout the year
• Check off chores as they are done and they drop to the bottom of the list out of your way
• No major cleaning days or Spring Cleaning week, do just a little all year around
• Daily items and those that come up less frequently are scheduled for you
• No need to remember when you last changed the a/c filter or dusted the living room – just do the tasks as they come up; the app keeps track for you.

You can move items to other days if you have a conflict. The application also gives you the ability to "hide" items that don't apply. Don't have a pet? Just hide the "Feed Pets" chore, then "unhide" it later if you get a pet part of the way through the year.

The system is designed to help you complete chores and tasks throughout the year so you don’t spend your entire day doing housework. Motivated Moms is all about reducing stress, not adding to it, in order to make home management easier.

Don't have an iPhone? go here. Motivated Moms offers the same cleaning list in an e-book form to download to your computer!

I am loving it and I have a feeling you will too!

{Going To A Family Of 5}

I found out I was pregnant at the beginning of January (literally on New Year's Day - great way to start off 2012!) and I decided to search a few ideas on Pinterest for fun ways to announce pregnancy. I found lots of creative cute ideas but I really liked these ones ...

I bought a sheet of plywood at Home Depot, had Sheri's husband cut it into squares for me (shout out to George!) and then I just painted them with chalkboard paint and wrote the numbers on them when they had dried. Easy peasy.

When I finally hit 12 weeks, I asked Cher to come over and take our picture. Unfortunately, it was a windy afternoon and freezing cold but the girls were both so excited to hold their signs that they would have smiled for as long as Cher asked them to. It just took about 5 minutes to get a picture and I loved the end result.

If anyone is looking for a fun way to announce a pregnancy, this was fun and super simple.
Thank you Pinterest!
