This Week on Pinterest!

I actually completed 3 things on my Pinterest boards this week. I'm so proud! Ha!

Let's start with the yummy stuff!

Last week the grocery store had blueberries on sale and I picked up two tubs of them. Well... Friday rolled around and I needed to something with them or they would be going bad soon. Sooo.... I got on Pinterest and looked up Blueberry Muffin recipes. Once I found one that I liked I went with it. I also added some chopped up strawberries and vanilla extract (I add vanilla extract to everything....). They were sooooooooooooooooooooooo yummy! Gone in pretty much two days! Gone so fast that I forgot to take a picture. Ooops!

Now onto crafts....

Weather Chart! Now I know Connor is a little young to be caring about the weather but I saw a weather chart on Pinterest a while back ago and my girlfriend also made one for her daughter that is about 4 months older than Connor a while back ago too and I thought it was neat. I figure each morning (if I remember) I can update what the weather will be and talk about it as we get our hats and coats on before walking out the door. Either way... it turned out cute!

Each Season and Weather Type is laminated and has a magnet on the back.
It sticks right to Connor's dry erase art easel.
Dress Up Snowman! I found a snowman printout on Pinterest a while back ago and with the snow/ice that came our way this weekend I thought it would be fun to color him, cut him up and turn him into a dress up magnet for the easel. Only problem I had was Connor was not interested in coloring at all. He colored a little bit of the snowman but then left the rest up to me. Once colored, I laminated the page, cut out the pieces and then slapped some magnets onto the back of the pieces. Voila! We have ourselves a fun snowman to play with and draw pictures around.

I run back to my craft room and came back out to finding Connor was tasting the dry erase crayons.....
So that's what happened this week! Looking forward to more crafting and cooking!!
