MPM on Friday Part 2

I did one other MPM project this week and wanted to so badly to space them out but I just can't!  I LOVE this project and they turned out so stinking CUTE so I am just going to post it now.

I got these magazine holders a few years ago at IKEA.  LOVE IKEA!  I have like 8 of them.  They have been sitting on the shelf in my hall for, well since at least 2004 because that was the date on one of the magazine's.  Oh my!


Now don't get me wrong, I do love these holders and I do think they are cute but really, they are serving no purpose right now.  I can not tell you the last time I looked at the magazines in them, probably the day I put them in the holder.  Eeek!

I have decided to declutter my life and I am starting with my house.  I don't need any of the magazines in the holders so why am I holding on to them?  My daughter does, however, have a TON of books.  Seriously!  This child has so many books it is scary.  I think we may actually own every Berenstain Bears book EVER published!

So in an effort to take her bookcase from looking like this:

To something much more organized I decided to take those cute old magazine holders and Mod Podge them into this:


Now, isn't that SO much better?  So easy also!  I only did three of the 8 because I ran out of papers but obviously we need a few more, then once I bring all of the other books that we have floating around our house into her room I will need to finish up the rest of them.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

For Such a Time as This

You know when you find a group of friends and you just sit back in amazement when you think of just how awesome they are? I am SO lucky to have a group like that in my life. I am even luckier to have this group in my girls' lives.  It is so very important to me for my girls to see the relationships I have with these women. The way we interact and love each other. It is important they see that even though each one of these women are very, very different, we still come together in love and laughter. It is also important to me that my girls see the relationships that these wonderful women have with their families. I am lucky enough to be close friends with two AMAZING families. We do things together, as families, we also do things together just the moms and kids. I love that my girls see these strong families and know that these families are there for them should they ever need them. In the times that we l…
