Showing off my #DisneySide

Recently I received an email stating that I was chosen to be a #DisneySide hostess. Well let me tell you that was the thrill of my day. Anxiously I stalked the message boards for word of shipping dates. And of course when the dates were released a freak cold hit the country. It seemed everyone was having delivery issues. Not me I thought. I live in good ole south Louisiana! HAHA! We were part of that storm. We had snaux! (snow) Not like what everyone else had but a shock to our system. Luckily my package was only delayed two days. And then…..IT ARRIVED! I was so EXCITED! What ever could I get????

I tore into the box….only restraining myself to take a picture of the outside. I peeked inside and Ooooooohhhh!

SOOOO MANY GOODIES!

Well now I have to plan my party! Mardi Gras vacation seemed like the perfect time. It happens to be a week when a lot of people from the New Orleans area happen to travel to Disney anyway. So this was a perfect week for those of us that weren’t going this year. I invited some of my mommy friends and their kids and got to setting up.

My youngest was so excited not only to have her friends over but to dig into the goodies.

The kiddos had a blast. It had rained the day before so we were stuck inside but the kids still had fun. I think the T-shirts were the HIT of the crowd.

They even enjoyed a bit of coloring some Frozen coloring sheets I found online.

My daughter and her friends had fun showing their #DisneySide

 

**Disclosure** I received free products in order to host the Disney Side @ Home Celebrations. The opinions expressed here are my own.

 

 

 

 

Its not so easy…

I hear it often. Sometimes directly sometimes indirectly. Sometimes it hurts sometimes it just annoys me. Basically the majority of the public believe stay at home moms do nothing all day. I don’t understand it. Do people think that ours houses are cleaned by magic? Seriously. I can’t speak for every SAHM but  I am speaking for myself. I am not just sitting down on the couch playing candy crush all day. In fact most SAHMs I know have pretty clean houses (those without infants…babies are messy…lol.) and they make dinner every night. We have to make up our income in other ways. We coupon, cook from scratch, rarely eat out or shop for ourselves and some of us even have home businesses. I know I do a lot……I’m tired every night. I wish I could have 2 more of me. Here is a small peek into my life:

Everyday I do the following: (unless life happens then I do what I can.)

Bring girls to school, make the beds, straighten the kitchen, straighten the living room, defrost dinner, start a load of laundry, clean the girls bathroom, straighten their rooms, straighten my bed and bath, finish the laundry….wash dry fold and put away, start dinner, pick up the girls from school, feed everyone, chauffer them to their activities (Mon Dance Tue Wed and Fri karate) come home clean the kitchen, get everyone their baths, check homework, make sure everyone has their clothes and backpack for tomorrow, put the kids to bed, and collapse myself. I also have a chore of the day depending on the day.

M-Trash

T Catch up on laundry

W Check new grocery circulars, menu plan and grocery list

Th Trash

F Clean out the truck

Sat Check Sunday’s coupons and pull expired coupons

Sun Buy newspapers and clip coupons, check week’s events, make sure uniforms and after school activity outfits are clean.

Then I set goals for the week. Little things I want to do but if it doesn’t happen it won’t kill anything. For instance this week’s goals are:

Clean & Sweep front porch area

Deep clean stove

Scrub countertops

Clean and organize under the sink

Clean top of fridge

Sweep and mom kitchen

Update contacts and create emergency contact list.

I follow Flylady and she breaks the house into zones. For instance this week is the kitchen so all of my goals are focused in there.

I think I keep myself pretty busy. Yes I do take breaks where I will get on FB. BUT every working person does that. It can’t be nonstop all the time. But next time you find yourself thinking all SAHMs do is lie around watching TV please keep that opinion to yourself. This mom for one stays pretty busy.

 

Banishing Morning Mayhem WFMW

So….does this describe your mornings? You wake up late (forgot to set your alarm), kids are asking where their uniforms/shoes are, lunches aren’t packed and there goes the bus. After dropping the kids at school you drive through somewhere because you are hungry. You are running late so you drive a little fast only to spill coffee on your shirt. Any of this sound familiar? Want it to be a thing of the past?

Listen up….the secret to getting out of the house on time with less screaming and panicking is simple. Prepare the night before. That’s it. So simple. How you ask?

Prepare the night before. Have an evening routine. The more you do at night the less you have to do in the morning when your brain isn’t fully functioning. I start mine after dinner and it looks like this:

  • Clean kitchen (load DW, put away food, wipe counters)
  • Check homework progress/ sign all necessary paperwork
  • Bathe kids, jammies & teeth
  • Set out tomorrow’s clothes for everyone. This includes shoes and backpacks.
  • Check calendar (What is tomorrow’s activity?) Pack set out bags (dance, hip hop, karate)
  • Make sure backpacks are packed (lunches, money, library book, gym clothes)
  • Set dishwasher timer
  • Shower and set alarms & go to bed at a decent hour.

I do this every night….I just skip over school stuff on weekends and holidays. I make sure my kids have enough uniforms to last the entire week and I make sure ALL uniforms are washed and hung up on Sunday. I have it written out and have it in my home management binder. But you can put it on a couple of post it notes and place them where you need them.

I also get up before my kids. Sometimes my oldest gets up at the same time but she is 14 and dresses herself. I get up about an hour before my youngest so I can get everything done. I also have a morning routine written out. Why? Because my brain takes longer to wake up. So I have it posted where I can just go chore by chore.

I am a firm believer in the more you prepare the easier your morning. I know anytime I don’t feel well or something happens and my night time routine goes out of the window I pay for it dearly in the morning.

Do you have a night time routine? Any tips for getting out of you house on time in the mornings?

My baked Potato Soup

OMG is this stuff good. I have served it to numerous friends, relatives and strangers and everyone loves it. I hope you do too.

1 lb bacon

6-8 baking potatoes (peeled and diced)

1c diced onions

1/2c green onions

2c chicken stock

2 large cartons heavy cream

3/4c sour cream

1 stick butter

2c shredded cheese (you can use what you like but I use colby)

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Brown bacon and remove from pan and allow to cool. Try to resist eating bacon. Add white onions and dices potatoes to bacon grease. Cook till potatoes are softened. Now, make sure you are using a stock pot at this point…..or you can use your crock pot from here on. Add chicken stock, cream and about 1/2c of the sour cream. Just eyeball it….it doesn’t have to be perfect. Simmer till about 20 min before dinner. If using a crock pot place it on low and resist opening lid every few minutes to smell. About 20 min or so before dinner add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. I love this with a hunk of french bread. Try to make this only a few times a year as I will not be held responsible for your cholesterol….lol.

Let me know how it turns out.

Menu Plan 3/11-3/17

I should have posted this yesterday but the day kinda got away from me. It seems the Monday after we spring forward combined with a husband chile art project leaves this momma with a ton of cleaning on Monday. Anyway…..here is what we are eating at my house this week.  I only do dinner as my kids eat cereal or school breakfast and school lunch everyday and whoever is here usually eats leftovers or salad or sandwiches for lunch)

Monday….Monday is Chicken and sausage jambalaya with the yummy whole grain rolls I got from WalMart.

Tuesday is Beef and broccoli night. I got the recipe here and I modify it just a bit. First I double the sauce…..I like sauce. Second I add diced carrots and sliced mushrooms. I want more filling veggies……that and I hate broccoli but love love love carrots and mushrooms…..I serve that over steamed rice.

Wednesday….we actually have this as our only night off so its fried salmon patties with cheesy potatoes and spinach.

Thurdays….Beef stew with mushrooms, carrots and potatoes served over steamed rice.

Friday…Chilibeans and rice

Sat….my oldest has her softball banquet so that is where she and I will eat while the hubby and youngest will have leftovers.

Sun….we are headed to a crawfish boil so the only thing I will make this day is the dirt cake I promised for dessert. We will eat breakfast at home but lunch and dinner will be crawfish and all the fixins.

Whats for dinner at your house this week?

WFM Wednesday

Cakes…..everyone loves them but no two are alike……or is that just snow flakes? Anyway, I love making cakes and cupcakes for my family but I am still a box cake mix mom. However I modify it some. I firmly believe that my modifications make the box mix taste better. Well, that and homemade frosting.

Here’s what I do:

First instead of water I use evaporated milk. Same amount. I believe this adds a richness to the cake. And bonus….more calcium!

Second, instead of vegetable oil I use butter. Real butter. Scratch recipes call for butter. BUT instead of 1/2 cup I use a whole cup. (2 sticks)

I keep the eggs the same but I also add 1T white sugar. This adds moisture to the cake.

My cakes always come out rich and moist.

Are you willing to try this on your next box mix?
