Year Round Fun with School Supplies {Sneak Peak}

Now that your kids are back to school...

Whether you have one in preschool or high school, there's something fun you can do for your school aged kiddo! We are all swamped at the beginning of the school year, just trying to get the right supplies and figure out a balance with a new fall schedule. I have a hard time getting everything done that I want to, so I was thinking this year...why not do it year round?

So, Here's a little sneak peak of several ideas coming up, that you can do to make school a little more fun. Sprucing up those everyday school supplies can be easy and fun!

Pancake Bacon Breakfast Sandwiches!

Pancake Bacon Breakfast Sandwiches! 
How much better does it get?

My son had a class last year where his teacher was talking about how everything is connected...if you don't have trees, you don't have air, without air, you don't have animals, without pigs, you don't have bacon and then he ended with, "If there's no bacon, what's the point?" lol The kids loved it! In fact, we ended up even making a shirt for my son and his teacher as an end of the year gift. So fun!

Well, this time...we have bacon!

We were staying in a cabin this past summer, miles away from anything and realized as we were making pancakes one morning, that we had forgotten to bring any syrup. Ugh...BUT we made it work and now it's a favorite!!!

We got out the PB, got out the bananas and sliced them, got out the berry flavored yogurt and the bacon and what did we get? A Pancake Bacon Breakfast Snadwich! (that would not even fit in your mouth!) They were soooo yummy!!! Should have done it years ago!

Try them out! So easy!

Pancake Bacon Breakfast Sandwiches
Pancake mix of your choice (I like Bisquick for quick and fluffy pancakes)
Peanut Butter (or Caramel Almond Butter-soooo yum!)
Berry flavored yogurt
Strawberry jam

Mix and match items at your whim! So many yummy combinations possible!

What's your favorite go-to breakfast away from home? I think this has become ours! 
Just don't forget the bacon! ;)

My love of word art

If you know me very well, you know I love word art. I have a wall of of it in our house and need a larger wall! haha I have a never ending list of new ones I want to add. Well, after a discussion with my husband this past week, I was inspired to make this one up. Love it!

And on that note, go make your weekend full of greatness!

Family Feature Presentation Wall Art

Today's post is part of the FB Silhouette Challenge group I am in. This month's theme was Home Decor and I had the perfect thing that I was working on already! I love how my Silhouette lets me personalize and customize our home. So much fun! So, check out what I did below and then go check out the other 20+ amazing projects from other bloggers!

So, I might be a weird one, but I like changing my wall art every few months to a year. I just change things up from one wall to another, one room to another, or mix and match. lol Is it just me? Am I weird?

Well, I used to have much of this above our fireplace, but moved it to a wall in my living room and am loving it! I loved combining some ideas and even thought it would be great to change the pics up and sometimes have our family blooper pictures up here! That's when I really need the quote back up "These are the days we'll remember forever", huh? lol BC how true in a family! There are definitely more "blooper moments, than picture perfect moments. I love family pictures either way, so this is a great way to spotlight them and be able to change them up too. (although not the best place in my house to find great lighting for pictures. haha)
