Funtastic Friday #175

Our home remodel is coming along nicely.
Look for an upcoming post soon on the progress!
You can check out the inspiration board {here}
and the remodel plan plus demo day #1 {here}

Churro Ice Cream Cups that are easy to make and fun to eat! They're piped on cupcake tins for the perfect serving size and baked, not fried, so they're a little better for you. They're perfect for summer parties and everyone eats their cup so no dirty dishes.

I've got Cinco de Mayo on my mind.
and Miranda's churro ice-cream cups would be so fun to make on the 5th!
I love churros and this is a sweet twist on the traditional churro sticks.

We have another grad this year!
 I've got to make her a graduation banner.
I make one for each grad in our high school colors.
You can print off your own full size banner for 2018 {here}

You can also make a printable mini banner {here}
Don't worry, each banner has different number options
so you can print the right year for your graduate!

Now on to the party!

Welcome to this week's Funtastic Friday!

Dairy Free Hawaiian Tropical Smoothie Recipe

We're in the middle of a home reno project,
so things are a little crazy around here.
Can't wait for the new kitchen and to make
Janice and Susan's  tropical smoothie. 
It looks so refreshing!
I'm not sure where the blender is at the moment,
but have this recipe Pinned!

Follow along with the beginnings of our kitchen/family room remodel {here}

Modern Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel-Demo Day #1

I've been waiting 12 years since we moved into this house
to take on some updating and replacing worn out fixtures.

It's one of those things when you move into a place
and have a list of things you want to replace, update or redo
and then life gets busy, money goes to cars, college, etc.
But when things start breaking, rusting out
and you finally convince the hubs--
reno begins!

Farmhouse Kitchen Makeover! -Inspiration Board

Getting ready for a kitchen makeover!
I'm beyond excited, this is a long time in the making
and we're finally doing it!

Funtastic Friday #173

We have exciting things going around here this week.
We started our long over due kitchen updates and remodel!
Check back each week for new posts on the progress!

Angie's canvas would look great in our new family room space.
A friend of mine showed me this technique a few months ago and I've been meaning to try it out.
Live Craft Love has a great tutorial-so easy!

I'm all about quick and easy projects these days.
And anything with black and white buffalo check.
Our check table runner fits the bill on both counts!
Fun as a handmade gift for a friend
and on your own farmhouse kitchen table.

Let's check out more crafty inspiration on this week's party!

Easy Buffalo Check Table Runner

I caught the buffalo check bug a few months ago
and found a quick way to make a quilted check table runner.

Bought a yard and 1/2 of this already quilted buffalo check fabric.
Love those black and white squares. 
The length worked well for my table, but I think next time I'll go with 2 yards

What's great with this fabric
is that you already have a grid for cutting.
I wanted mine to be about 12" wide so I just counted in 13 squares and cut the length of the fabric.

Funtastic Friday #172

We've been busy around here,
 finishing up middle school basketball and beginning club soccer.
The big news is that we are getting ready for a kitchen remodel!!
This was needed since we moved in 12 years ago--
and finally the hubs got on board.
Hoping to have some posts soon ;) 
Enjoy your Easter weekend!
We get a 3 day weekend starting tomorrow.
Our plans: need to clean out a couple rooms, attend a church pot luck/Easter egg hunt, go hiking, listen to some conference , possibly bake cinnamon rolls, soccer game, finish painting a child size rocking chair for a friend, cook and eat a little Easter dinner/bunny basket candy ;) Just the usual...

Maybe that's why Tania's bath bombs caught my eye....

Stack of bath bombs created with the lush bath bomb recipe

I need to relax! 
Enjoy your weekend and Funstatic Friday....

Funtastic Friday #170

Spring is here in Texas!
Looking for a wreath for home.
Tania has this simply easy Easter egg hoop wreath that we're lovin'.

Easter wreath made with an embroidery hoop. Moss is hot glued on the bottom with foam pastel colored easter eggs on top of the moss. There is a pink ribbon tied in a bow on the top of the wreath.

We've got our hello Spring holiday board up too. 

How are you decorating for Spring? 
Looking forward to getting more ideas from this week's link party.
Let's get it started....

Funtastic Friday #169

We're getting ready for Spring Break next week!
And St. Patrick's day too.
Do you have any fun traditions for that day of green?

A delicious waffle bar that is as colorful as the rainbow! Fresh fruit, cream, and waffles combine for the perfect St. Patrick's Day breakfast (or dinner!) that the whole family will love.

Brandy has this cute  rainbow waffle bar for the kids.

It reminds me of our Mini Fruit Pizzas.

How about some Leprechan Trail Mix

with green M&Ms for St. Pats.
More St. Patrick's Day ideas {here}

Now on to this week's Funtastic Link Party!

Funtastic Friday #168

Welcome back to another Funtastic Friday!
This week has been a quiet one for me,
which was a much needed break in our crazy schedules.

Baked Parmesan & Panko Portobello Fries |

Jacqueline has the recipe for these baked parmesan Portobello mushrooms. 
Don't they sound and look so good!? 
Portobello mushrooms are some of my faves. 
And I love those little metal fryer baskets she has them in! 


Reminds me of Kristin's fried zucchini 
and Carrie's bacon stuffed mushrooms.

Maybe I'll just make appetizers for dinner!

Now, let's get to this week's link party!

Funtastic Friday #167

So looking forward to the weekend! 
What plans do you have?

These fudgy Skillet Brownies for Two are the perfect ending to a romantic dinner |

The weather is taking a cold turn this weekend and
Lisa's skillet brownies  sound delish for a cold night.
Plus I have these mini cast iron skillets that I always forget about.
Now I've got a reason to use them ;)

Might warm up with some Wassail too.
Now on to the par-tay!

Funtastic Friday #166

How was your Valentines day?
Hope you felt loved.
Because you are uniquely, you and amazing!

Speaking of love,
the hearts on these pillows are so fun and I love the fabrics.

Quilted Sweetheart Pillow Tutorial

Brandy really has a knack for quilting.
Love her sweetheart pillow!

It reminds me of a group I was involved with a few years back.
We were going to make one quilt square a month and then at the end of the year sew our squares into a quilt. Kind of a quilt block of the month club. 
I think I got 3 squares finished.
I need to pull those out and maybe complete it :/ 
I'll keep you posted.....
Meanwhile, it is a rainy day,
which puts me in the mood for soup. 

Maybe my kid's favorite--Creamy Ham and Potato

Then curl up and check out this week's Funtastic Friday!

Funtastic Friday #165

Welcome to the weekend.
It's a beautiful day here, sun is shining and feels like late spring.

Make this candy bar wreath in under 20 minutes!

Kari made this Candy Bar Wreath  for her teen daughter's birthday.
What a great idea!
So making one of these for high school graduation.
Maybe some mini wreaths, it's got me thinking...

I'm scrambling to get things ready and in the mail for Valentines day.
It snuck up on me.

I'm putting out our Valentine card making station tonight,
so the kids can get on it and I can mail them out tomorrow.
A little something to do as we watch the opening ceremony of the Olympics. ;)

I've been craving flavored popcorn.
So I think some of our chocolate conversation heart popcorn will be in the mix for a card making treat.

Now, let's get to all the fun Valentine ideas you have for us on Funtastic Friday!

Welcome to the weekend!
Funtastic Friday I didn't forget you!
Just running a little late, got distracted with kid sporting events yesterday. ;)

My organizational plans took a back seat for the past couple weeks,
but I'm ready to take on some areas that need decluttering this weekend.

DIY Metal Basket Shelving {} #metal #basket #organize #shelf #DIY

Jena had a great shelving idea--use metal baskets.
And I love these old gym locker baskets she found!

Are you thinking about Valentines day yet?
I've got a new printable coming for class Valentines or a little something for your kids who are off to college, so check back with us next week.

Homemade valentines are so fun.
We've got some cute printable ideas for you here:
