Weekend Wandering


Happy Sunday everyone!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.  We had a super busy day yesterday but are looking forward to just chilling out at home this afternoon. I honestly can’t believe that tomorrow is the last day of the month.  Seriously, where did this month go?  In any case, there were a ton of great ideas shared at Thrifty Thursday this week. I was especially inspired by all your fun home & garden ideas for spring!  With over 400 posts to choose from it is always SO hard to choose favorites, but these are the posts I really loved this week:

 First of all, I think my family would be all over these Honey Garlic Crunch Chicken Tenders from Spend With Pennies!


Of course something like this Spinach Edamame Garlic Hummus from The First Year Blog is definitely more my speed.  Yum!


Have I told you how much I love lemon?  These Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes from  Joyful Homemaking sound absolutely delicious!


Decorating with color is such a challenge for me, which is why I loved these 3 Inexpensive and Easy Ways to Add Spring Colors to Your Home from Unexpected Elegance.


And speaking of cute colors for spring, I also loved these fun ideas for Adding a Little Spring with a wreath,banner or terrarium from The Colored Door. How cute is that wreath?

My kids are constantly asking if we can make crafts & I have to admit, sometimes I just run out of ideas!  These adorable Toilet Paper Roll Baby Farm Animals from View From the Fridge look easy and fun.  We may even make some this afternoon!


Looking for ways to motivate your children into doing chores? Mortiz Fine Designs has an Instant Gratification Chore Chart that is seriously brilliant!


Longing for a home office but don’t have the space?  Check out this great Closet to Office Reveal from Elizabeth Joan Designs. What an amazing transformation!

    Thanks for featuring me. The homemade liquid miracle grow sounds awesome, I will have to check it out. My husband built me a small raised garden last fall that I want to fill this spring with veggies.
