planner-2017-life-fling
 
The best thing about a new year is a new planner! I love the smooth clean pages that are begging to be filled. I scoured the stores and Internet and fell in love with this little gem, it’s the 12 Month Spiral Planner by Recollections. It’s regularly priced $39.99 at Michaels but I lucked out and it was 50% off. I was so excited that I got my mom one too so I didn’t really save anything at all.

{CHRISTMAS}: Advent Calendar Filler ideas for Toddlers

Advent Calendar Filler Ideas for Toddlers - Life Fling

White Blank Space - Life Fling

Last year I filled Link’s advent calendar with little toys and books and it was great but this year I wanted it to be more interactive.  Since we love doing little projects and we don’t need anymore little toys rolling around the living room I decided to go with an activity/craft theme. I gathered some pre-made kits from Michaels and Dollarama and then put together some of my own activities based on things I found on Pinterest. Continue reading

{FOOD}: Halloween Monster Brownies with DIY Googly Eyes

Healthier Monster Brownies with DIY Edible Eyes

White Blank Space - Life Fling

I love baking but I have a hard time not eating it all! I recently found a recipe for a brownie in a mug and thought “perfect, now I won’t be tempted by a whole pan.”    WRONG. Now it’s too easy to make a mug full of warm chocolate deliciousness at any time. I decided to change my approach and look for something maybe a little more healthy and give away the extras to avoid temptation. Since Halloween is right around the corner we decided to make Monster Brownies. They’re simple enough that Link could help out too! Continue reading
