I finally have enough done in the boy's playroom to want to share it! I don't know if I'll ever be 100% done with this room because I want it to continue to grow with them as they get older, but for right now, I'm so happy with how it has turned out. For me, a playroom is 3 things: a safe place to play, a place to store toys, and a cozy place to cuddle up and read. I feel like we achieved all three of those things with this room. Keep reading for pictures of the space, links to the items in the room, and a special 85% off code from the company that we bought the rug that really transformed the room!
Almost everyone has experienced that awkward time of life where you are finally an adult but haven't been one long enough to really live like an adult. You have your first places away from home but your couch is still a futon from Walmart, you have a sheet taped to your window instead of blinds, and throw blankets are all blankets you took from your mom's collection in the basement! However, in the midst of saving for a wedding, a downpayment on a house, or just trying to figure out how to pay bills, new furniture and renovations aren't on the "need now" list.
I've complied 6 things - each under $50 - that you can do to your home/apartment to make it more "adult" without the daunting task of shelling out for new furniture or buying a washer/dryer (who knew those were so expensive!!).

As baby Clark got a little bit more active, I wanted to start allowing him to play under a jungle gym. However, when Oliver outgrew his jungle gym, I got rid of it because I hated how large, bulky, and obnoxiously colorful it was! I had been procrastinating buying a new one because the minimalist looking wooden ones that I liked were so expensive and the cheaper ones were the same problem as Oliver's old one. So, a few days before Christmas I complained about this to Domenic, showed him a picture of the wooden ones I liked, and he told me he could make one himself! For anyone else out there looking for a simple wooden jungle gym for your infant to play under, maybe this post will help you realize how easy it is to make one yourself

If your toddler is anything like mine, he loves pouches, AND he also loves opening multiple pouches a day and never completely finishing one! We recently discovered that our favorite pouches brand, Happy Family now has a Happy Tots Whole Milk Yogurt Pouches line. You can find them in the refrigerated section of target. We just got some this week, and Oliver has been eating them like crazy. However, he loves opening a pouch, eating half of it, putting it back in the fridge, and then opening another one. Since I hate wasting such good whole milk yogurt, I came up with
4 easy recipes that put those leftover pouches to good use.
