In our family we teach that each day every person you meet should be treated with kindness. It is a simple concept that we often don't think about and sometimes it slips our mind when we have a bad day. On February 17, National Random Acts of Kindness Day is being observed. This amazing day has been growing in popularity since it originated in New Zealand. Our family is going to be celebrating this beautiful day and here are some ways you can too!
With three kids who grow like weeds we always have a ton of clothes in the house that they are continually outgrowing. The boys are incredibly hard on theirs and they always have holes in them, so we can't always donate or use them as hand me downs. Instead, I love to repurpose them! This little project is a great way to use old t-shirts and it is a simple project so kids can help or older kiddos can even do it on their own!
This super recipe is one of our family favorites. It is incrediblly easy to make and kids love to help with it. Most of the time, we have all of the ingredients in our fridge, so it is nice and easy to throw together for dessert or brunch.
This is one of the yummiest sauces you will ever taste, but it is also one of the simplest. Just toss everything into your slow cooker and you are ready to go! I typically make four batches at a time so I can can them. If you follow the recipe, you have a single batch good for 6 cups of sauce. Don't forget to add what you want and make the recipe your own!
Every fall, the one thing I most look forward to is pumpkin everything! I absolutely love the taste and smell of pumpkin and I can't wait to make my favorite pumpkin desserts. This one is one of my best! It takes only a few minutes to make and it tastes AMAZING!! This recipe makes 12 servings and is perfect by itself or served with ice cream.
My kiddos absolutely love bananas so I was looking for a way to use them in a dessert. This super yummy cake is quick to make and awesome for those yellow fruit lovers! Whip it up and serve it with whipped cream on the side.
Fall is officially here, and you know what that means...Halloween! it is time for the ghosts and ghouls to come out and frolic. Want to know where you have the best chance of finding something spooky in Pittsburgh? Keep reading and bundle up while you are out searching for your next haunt.

Today was flea market day in our house. I absolutely love when we find awesome deals and today was no exception. We ran into our favorite veggie vendors at the market and they gave me an amazing deal on some baby cucumbers. So, I had to make a batch of pickles! I have three little pickle monsters here at home and making my own is so much better than buying them in the store. I know what is in them and it is much more budget friendly. All together, it was just under three hours work and a ton of fun! So, if you are a huge pickle family like we are, then this is a DIY project for you!
For canning, I use a Ball kit like this. It has everything you need except the jars, lids, rims, and labels. I highly recommend it. It works more than just for pickles, so if you want to start canning, this is the set for you.
This is probably one of my favorite DIY home hacks. It is super easy to make and it works awesome. This is a great detergent for your dishwasher that is made with everything you should have in your home already, and it is chemical free! The best part is if you mix up three or four batches at once, you won't need to worry about making it for quite a while. You can check out the huge container I use below to store it all in. Another handy tip is to throw a baby sock filled with rice (tie it with a rubber band) into the detergent to keep out any moisture and stop it from hardening.
