Excited to partner with Walmart & SheSpeaks to bring you some fun ideas for spring gardening with kids!

It’s been chilly here the past few days, but it’s consistently getting warmer and more sunny every day.  Spring really wants to shine!

Spring Gardening with Kids: A DIY Upcycled Planter + Free Printable Plant Growth Tracker!

To get ready for spring we’ve been doing lots of spring cleaning, including getting the garage organized.  While he was moving things around my husband found some seeds we had left from last season.  Bubbles immediately declared that we needed to plant them.  The only problem with that was… we only had gardening soil, but no starters or planters.

Thank you to The Motherhood and Kimberly-Clark for partnering with me to bring you this printable cleaning chart for preschoolers.

Bubbles loves to help around the house.  She knows where we keep the duster and often just gets it and asks if she can dust.  And if she hears the dryer buzz when it’s finished, she races me there so she can help fold clothes.

This shop and my date night homemade General Tso Chicken recipe have been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, Walmart Family Mobile. All opinions are mine alone. #DataAndAMovie #CollectiveBias

With Ashley living in Indianapolis and Austin having been away for his Army training our babysitting pool has been fairly tiny the last few months. Which means that date night is mostly celebrated at home after Bubbles has gone to bed.

Homemade General Tso Chicken recipe

I’ve been making homemade Sweet & Sour Chicken pretty regularly at my husband’s request.  So for our most recent date night I decided to go a similar route and make homemade General Tso’s Chicken.  This recipe comes together so fast and so easily that you’ll be making it for all your date nights.

We enjoy binging on some Netflix around here every once in awhile.  Daredevil, House of Cards, there’s lots of great stuff for hubs and I to watch.
