Laundry Basket Order

My house is in constant disarray these days. Seriously, I'm not kidding. With my basketball belly impeding me from reaching past my knees and my three bustling children, I can't seem to keep anything in its proper place. The one thing I have found is that when I begin to clean up a room, if I bring along my laundry basket, I am able to keep things in better order. How you ask? Well, basically I fill my basket with anything that doesn't belong in that room (which at my house is often toys) and as I go along I am able to tote it with me and place each item in the appropriate room/spot. I just love all that a laundry basket can be used for!

Outgrown Dress Reconsidered

For those of you with little ladies running around, I want to let you in on a recent discovery of mine. When your little one outgrows a dress, you can just throw some leggings under it and use it as a top! Dresses can last you up to one more year this way depending on the style and cut. Above is my 23 month old sporting her 12 month old dress as a long top. I think it's pretty dang cute.

Who Needs A Popper?

My good friend Stephanie informed me the other day that it is possible to pop your own popcorn kernals in a paper bag in the microwave. Well, it seemed to make sense since that's what microwave popcorn is! So I set aside my popper and gave it a go.

I placed 1/4 cup of kernals in a paper bag, rolled the top and sealed it with a bit of masking tape. 1:15 later I had a fluffy bag of perfectly popped kernals. As you can see, the white bag may have started to burn where I folded it, so perhaps a brown bag would be best or don't fold the top more than once?
Nonetheless it came out grand. So cool!
