I am so happy about this Easter! My children will both be old enough to have their first real Easter Egg Hunt by themselves! :D I can't wait. I went out and bought those plastic eggs that you can fill yourself so instead of just hunting for little chocolate eggs, they get eggs, candy, and small toys like bouncy balls, pretend jewelery, crayons, etc. I am just so excited to see their little faces light up when they wake up Easter morning and discover that their are Bright colorful Easter eggs spread about the house that the Easter bunny left behind the night before :)
As with every holiday that comes around I've created a simple Easter Subway Art Printable for you all to enjoy!

It may still be frigid outside with -20 degree weather, and it may blizzard occasionally, but it's finally that time of year! SPRING! Where the snow melts and green grass takes it's place, and icy tree branches bud with new leaves and foliage. Where flowers begin to bloom and birds begin to sing. But with spring, comes spring cleaning. There are many people who dread this time, but me, I lavish in it. It's a secret of mine that I actually ENJOY (yes you read that correctly) cleaning. I love organizing. Yet you wouldn't think so because of the amount of toys, my husbands work gear, and nick nacks in absolutely every corner in every room. My family apparently doesn't like organizing. haha But I love going through every room, every space and throwing out junk, wiping down my decor and getting rid of those pesky little dust bunnies that decided to make the space behind our couch their home away from home through the winter. There is honestly so much to do, and never enough time, nor space to do it, especially with two little ones running around as well things will always be hectic. So I did a little researching, and came up with a massive list of stuff that is what I usually do every spring, and I have also supplied you with a daily cleaning list which I follow as if it were my bible, and my house went from disaster WW5 to just messy looking, which is as good as it'll get for right now Guaranteed.
Below is both printables, and I hope you enjoy and get rid of your junk this spring! For another person's trash is another person's treasure :)

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I usually have a bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon and half a banana and a big glass of milk, a protein shake, or my favorite. PANCAKES! Yet usually after you've made your batter, cooked them till golden brown, slathered them in butter and ooey gooey maple syrup, your already at 600 calories for breakfast. That's half my daily intake allowance (not cool). I surfed the web for hours the other day because I needed to find something that was still healthy, but as delicious as a normal wholesome stack of pancakes. I came across a bunch of oatmeal gluten-free pancakes, pancakes without sugar, and flour, and the possibilities were endless. So I decided on these (which in turn were fantabulous)
- 1 1/4 cup Old Fashioned Quaker Oats
- 1 1/4 cup Skim Milk
- 1 Large Egg
- 1 Tbsp light olive oil
- 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- In a medium bowl, mix oats with milk, let stand 5 minutes.
- Add in egg and oil, and mix.
- Add dry ingredients until just well blended
- Drop by 1/4 cup measurements and flatten out a bit
- Cook on hot nonstick skillet or pancake griddle until brown
- Flip and cook until lightly golden
- Top with whatever you like (not including in nutritional value)
** I like to add peanut butter and 1 mashed banana to my pancakes sometimes, they taste super good and are jam packed with loads of protein :) Also try using a sugar free syrup
