Treat to Try

Today I decided to clean out my Pinterest pins, boards, etc.–however, some of the pins that I pinned long ago won’t let me move them because they have since then been marked spam so, here’s one of them, because I want to be able to pin it and use it later.

UPDATED: I was able to do a Google Images search and located it but, here’s the recipe. Continue reading “Treat to Try”

Christmas Planning

Never too early to start, right? Started Christmas planning a couple days ago and last night, I was wake for quite a while thinking about ideas and looking on Pinterest. I found a couple ideas and I am super excited.

When I first started, I wanted to get our oldest something that was just under $150 with accessories taking it to just over $200. However, the more I think about it, I have decided that each of our boys will get one “BIG” present and the rest will be stuff that we craft by hand. Some of them, I will have them help me with since I am home with them 24/7 and I don’t think there’s a way I could just make the stuff for everyone on weekends and be done before Christmas hits.

My original goal was get everyone something awesome and then it went to spending under $1,000. But, I don’t now what price range I am thinking right now but, definitely under $1,000.

Unfortunately, because friends and family read this, I can’t post exactly what I am thinking for who but, there are two or three presents I want to buy my husband–depending on if he buys the other one before then. I know of one more present I want to make him. There is one present I am going to make my family that we are living with. And there are tons of ideas that are still out there so, I need to start a list and start figuring out what is for who and start crafting all the non-perishables.

Lots to do, lots of ideas–thank you. Pinterest! 😛

Keep you updated as the journey continues–hoping that I can get all the “BIG” presents for the men for under $500 but, we’ll see. Fingers crossed. Here goes the rest of the planning.
