The Perfect Family...I figured out how!! {Free Printable}


This girl is my world.  As the cliche says, I can't imagine life without her.  

She is the last thing I see at night, and I secretly love when she sneaks in bed with me.
That way she is the first thing my eyes lay upon when I wake.  

And as most parents do, I fret and fret about how I am doing at this job.  Facebook and Pinterest do not help. 

 There are a million and one posts on how to be a Super Mom.  What a downer!  We also know there is no such thing as perfect.  Poor Miss O struggles with the anxiety of letting people down and making mistakes.  I know as her mother, I need to do a better job and allowing her to make those mistakes and not expect perfection.  Because you know what, and this may come as a shocker...I am not perfect myself!  (I know right, hard to believe)  I was talking to my cousin and she said something that has become the new Fuller Family Mantra...
And it is SO true!  This family is so perfect for me!

This fairy tale involves one sweet girl, an amazing man child, a lot of laughter and love, and it all takes place in the Little Blue House!  It's been here the whole time and I can't imagine life any other way.

And it wouldn't be a post without a printable.  I have this framed mantra reminder ready for the wall! 
All three color schemes are available in both 5x7 and 8x10 HERE!

Spring is in the air {FREE PRINTABLE}

Considering this is happening here all week...

 

The saying "April showers bring May flowers" better hold true!  Although the LBH is a blank slate when it comes to landscaping...literally.  I am the Queen of container planting.  Maybe I should post outdoor pics and shame myself into action!  I found this printable at the Silhouette shop and wanted to share it!

Skillet Sausage and Peppers

Skillet Sausage and Peppers.  Another easy peasy dinner!  I love that all ingredients are fresh and it takes a whole 15 minutes to prep!  Best part of all?  All it takes is a cutting board and skillet so clean up is a breeze!


Get ready for the easiest directions yet...
Chop It Likes it Hot!  Cut up onion, peppers, taters, and kielbasa.  Miss O will eat some kielbasa likes no one's business! 

Throw some butter and oil in the skillet until butter melts.

Add some seasoning.  We live on some Tony Chachere's!!!

Sausage and Peppers, saute
Cook for 15-20 minutes, making sure potatoes are tender.  Stir occasionally.

Oh wait...YOU ARE DONE!

I am always on the look out for an easy meal that is also not pushing a bunch of processed ingredients in our bellies.  What are your favorite skillet meals?
