Worth Checking Out!

Click on over -- you'll be glad you did!

1. These girl's boots are on sale at Target right now. I got these for my 4 year old daughter a few weeks ago and she loves them! It has not really been cold enough in our part of the world to wear them yet, but my girl has not let that minor detail stop her. I must say the boots are really cute!

2.This post of Lysa's is so incredibly funny and yet leaves you with an amazing message of faith. And yes, I absolutely believe in demons disguised as chips and salsa posters!

3. Complete Organizing Solutions has some great kid room & bathroom inspection checklists you can download. And I thought my son was the only elementary-aged kid that needs to be reminded to flush!

4. Here is a super message from Antique Mommy on gratitude and contentment.

5. Remember I'm trying to buy less processed food, well, Quaker Chewy Granola bars used to be a staple around here, but I made these homemade granola bars recently (yes, while my toddler was licking Cayenne Pepper) and they are really yummy. They could completely replace the store-bought if I could just make the time to whip up a batch every few days!

6. Speaking of made-from-scratch, I've made these whole wheat crackers a few times now and they really are easy and good!

7. Last, but not least (my 4 year old just used this phrase today, hilarious to hear her say it!), this post from a long time ago on SimpleMom, completely changed my organizing life! I realized my exact problem. I was failing to organizes spaces in my home because I didn't think I had the time or money to do it perfectly. Now, I strive to just make it a little better and I find I'm tackling a lot more projects due to lower expectations!
