Favorite Instagram Photo:
I love instagram. It is definitely my favorite social media outlet. I am a big time picture person. That being said I share a lot of pictures of my kids and our little piece of the country on instagram. This is one of my favorite pictures of the past couple weeks. The evening before, I made + canned the last of our apples, so I brought the apple peels and such to the horses the next day. It just happened to be snowing at a decent rate and I was able to snap this pretty picture.
Favorite Kids Book:
I feel like we have a very good sized home library of kids books and this past year it has seemed that we have read all of our books on repeat. Granted we do hit up the library for books every couple weeks too but both Neil + me were looking for something different to read to Reid. We stumbled upon the My Weird School chapter books and they have been a hit ever since. We are slowly making our way through the set 1-2 chapters a night.
I am still on a soup kick. Its been so cold outside and nothing sounds better to me on a bitter cold winter day than soup (Well maybe not having to go outside on such a day). This week I made Chicken + Rice Soup and it really hit the spot.
I also made a batch of these Baked Oatmeal Cups. Of course Reid wanted all the ones with chocolate chips. We have had a few for breakfasts this week and I popped the rest in the freezer for a quick breakfast or snack.
It has been cold here (Hello, its winter), so I have been sipping a lot of hot chocolate lately.
This Grove Square Hot Cocoa is my favorite. Thank goodness for Amazon Prime because its been going fast at our house.
Favorite Organizing Item:
In the spirit of the new year organizing trend, I have been cleaning and organizing closets and forgotten spaces. I have been using these Sterilite Flip Top storage boxes in several sizes to help organize and contain games in the playroom, medicine and bandaids in the closet, little craft items in the office, etc. I love that the lid stays attached so I don't have to search for it after the kids use them and they are clear so that I can see exactly what is in each one without digging through them.
Told ya, total randomness. Hope you all have a good weekend!
