earrings on a cheese grater.

okay, i realize i might be a little late on this and that these have been on the scene for a bit now, but I just learned how to make an earring holder out of a cheese grater. who knew?!

you simply take a cheese grater and some spray paint and you're good to go. i gave it two coats, letting the paint dry in between each one. i also gave it an extra touch by wrapping some jute string around the handle using a glue gun to secure it.

and if you want to give it an extra touch of cuteness, have your husband dig through his tool box in the garage and find some wire and have him cut it and then bend it so that it has these creative little curly things at the end of it and then do the easy part yourself of gluing them to your cheese grater.

super easy, super cute!

dr. seuss birthday

today is dr. seuss' birthday and we wanted to do something fun for homeschool. here is what our day looked like:

we started out with green eggs and ham. okay, we didn't have any ham so i made bacon. and i wanted to mix eggs with spinach in the blender to make them green, but i didn't have any spinach (i'm so organized and prepared), so i used a dash of our green powder supplement we use for smoothies. now, before you say "gross", let me assure you the eggs were quite tasty. maleah even said so. we also enjoyed some fresh green juice (apple, lettuce, and lemon) on the side.

while we ate our breakfast i read the book, what else, green eggs and ham by dr. seuss.

we enjoyed a game of tic tac toe.

and maleah made some cute dr. seuss door hangers for her bedroom.

we ended the day with a fun family outing at the movies. today was the opening day of "the lorax". it was super cute and had a good message behind it.

thank you dr. seuss for sharing your gift of writing to the world! your books have brought joy to many households, including ours.
