Bathroom Makeover Update and Our Clean Routine

Home makeovers, they never do go as planned do they? Something ALWAYS comes up and pushes your expected completion date back. I was hoping I would be able to share our awesome new bathroom makeover and our Cottonelle clean routine with you today. But, I can’t. Hubby has been working hard but, there is still a TON of work left to do.
So, instead of our completed bathroom makeover, I am going to share about the shelf I made to hold a few extra rolls of Toilet Paper. I made this to hang above the toilet in the bathroom we are making over. I love the shabby chic look so the scuffs and imperfections look great to me. I do plan to scuff it up just a bit more though.
Now to our #cottonelleroutine. We are STILL trying to teach MG how to wipe after she poops. You guys, she starts school in like a month! She HAS to get this down! I have this fear of her being kicked out of school because she can’t wipe her hiney. *SIGH*
We have used Cottonelle Toilet Paper for YEARS, so naturally I incorporated their FreshCare Wipes into our care routine to help MG learn to wipe properly. Do you use flushable wipes for your kids? They are lifesavers! MGs biggest fear is getting poop on her hand, I have to agree that is a pretty valid fear. I mean really, who wants THAT on their hand? Not this mama!
Since we were running low on toilet paper, we decided to head to Target and get in on a GREAT deal for Cottonelle. When you bought 2 18 packs of Cottonelle, you received a package of their FreshCare Wipes for FREE! Awesome deal!
When we got home, I put a few extra rolls of toilet paper in my new shelf and placed the wipes on the top of the shelf. That way everything is easily reachable. I then set out to teach MG how to use the wipes herself. She felt better using the wipes than toilet paper because the wipes cover a larger area. While she still doesn’t have it down, she is getting there! PHEW! I will be using these last few weeks of summer break to really work with her so she can do it on her own. She is excited about school and knows she has to be able to wipe on her own or she can’t go. She is very eager to get this down thanks to our Cottonelle clean routine!

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

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. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
