What no one tells you about parenting

My son just left home for the first time to go across the country to college.  I have been surprised by the depths of my emotion.  It's one of the things that mom's don't seem to talk about enough, or even at all.  So I am going to talk about it- What No One Tells You About Parenting

How to reuse an old photo frame by making a new Homemade sign

Have you ever looked through your stash (c'mon, you know you have one), found a picture frame and wondered what to do with it? Or maybe you have one that was calling your name at the thrift store?

Both of those situations are out of my play book because I have tons of frames sitting in my closet.  I was recently challenged to use my stash, so I decided to put one of those old frames to work by making a "Homemade" sign for Wall Decor

Easy DIY Wooden Signs for Fall

It's fall!    I am ignoring the fact that it doesn't feel like it outside << side eye as I look out the window at the 100 degree temps outside>> and I'm forcing fall inside.  I am SO ready for cooler temps, curling up with a blanket, and baking lots of yummy treats.

I have already made my first batch of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.  YUM!  My family has snarfed them down.  I can't wait to make more.

Even if you aren't the baking type, don't worry, I've got you.  I'm going to show you how to whip up Easy DIY Wooden Signs to decorate your kitchen for fall!

10 things to tell my son as he goes to college

My first born child is getting ready to leave home for college.  All of the years of teaching and preparing for the day he leaves feels very inadequate right now.  I guess I still have a few more weeks to teach him a few basic meals, how to iron his dress shirts and maybe even how to empty the dishwasher.  :)

Mostly I have 2 more weeks to give him my heart felt love and advice.  These are the 10 things I will tell my son as he prepares to go to college.
