First of all, my daughter immediately spotted this darling American Girl Gymnastics Hoop from The Real Thing with the Coake Family and has not stopped asking if we could make one since. Such a cute idea!

Next, I loved this Artwork Display Wall from At the Corner of Happy and Harried–a fabulous solution to the never ending supply of masterpieces that my kids are constantly churning out.

I was a little disappointed to read that the reason Jamba Juice’s smoothies are so yummy is because they are full of ICE CREAM (and here I thought I was being so healthy!), but it didn’t make me want this yummy copycat Orange-A Peel Smoothie from Dear Beautiful You any less. Mmmmmmmm……


My kids absolutely love it when I make their lunch into shapes so I’m pretty sure they would be in heaven if I managed to copy this adorable Eggo waffle goat (it’s an “Eggoat” ha!) from Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons. How stinkin’ cute is that?


And speaking of yumminess, this Frozen Pineapple Pie from I got this Martha looks soooooooooo good! I’m pretty sure I have all the ingredients in my pantry already….I may be making this one today!

I was super impressed by this DIY Board & Batten project by Life on Virginia Street. It turned out so beautiful! What a cool budget-friendly way to add HUGE impact to a room!

And speaking of budget-friendly decorating ideas, these oversized black & white framed prints from Navy Bean Lane look absolutely amazing. What a great transformation of a little boys room!


I also loved this idea for Individual Seven Layer Dips from Six Sisters’ Stuff & My Recipe Magic. Total genius to put them in single serving plastic cups!

These little Washi Tape Tea Lights from The Love Nerds are so cute! I think I bought that same Washi Tape from Pick Your Plum….I am definitely going to whip up a few of these puppies for my next party!


And finally, any breakfast recipe that has only 4 ingredients is a keeper in my book. Grandma’s Orange Rolls from Ashley’s Dandelion wishes look amazing!


And that’s it for me this week. Have a wonderful weekend! If you’ve been featured, be sure to grab a button below!
