Hot Chocolate Valentines Printable

hot chocolate valentines day card

It has been a cold winter for us in Washington. Last week, it was so cold they pushed back school 2 hours due to ice on the road, and my kindergartner already starts school at 9:15. It was a crazy week, and all this cold has made me want lots hot chocolate. We love hot chocolate in our house and my kids get pretty excited to drink it whenever we have a chili morning. With Valentine’s Day coming up and knowing it will still be pretty cold, I thought it would be fun to put the two together! And as many of my printables, it’s easy to assemble.

 

Here’s what you’ll need:
-Hot Chocolate packets (I used the swiss miss 7.3 oz packets)

-Washi tape

Screen Shot 2017-01-16 at 9.10.31 PM1. When printing out the printable, make sure you DO NOT hit “Fit to Page” “Fit to Scale” in your printer settings when you print. This will throw off how you cut your printable and the print on the front will not be centered. Make sure you select “Actual Size”.

2. Cut down the middle of the page and fold it in half – for those of you who still remember the elementary term “hamburger style”.

3. After you’ve folded your print in half, unfold it and tape your hot chocolate at the top (and bottom if you prefer, mine stayed intact with just one) of the inside.

4. Fold it back up and tape it shut at the top with washi tape, and totally optional – place some washi tape at the bottom to give it a little extra something. And that’s it!

If you prefer to save some paper, I’ve also included a page of tags to print off and you can wrap a tag around a packet of hot chocolate with bakers twin or use the washi tape to put on the front of your packet.

Printable Goal Setting Worksheet

Happy 2017! Another year flew by and it was full of great memories for our family. We welcomed our baby girl in July, our oldest started kindergarten, our second child got promoted to big brother and is no longer the baby, we took a family trip to Dallas for a friend’s wedding, and my husband and I celebrated our 7th anniversary! We’ve had many things to be thankful for and I’m looking forward to 2017!

With a new year, we welcome new challenges and new goals. Thanks to a reader in search of an annual goal printable, I’ve come up with this worksheet for you in hopes that it will be a helpful reminder of what goal(s) you’ve set for yourself this year. The past few years, making a New Years resolution has always been on the back burner. I had always felt I’d been setting myself up to fail, but after listening to a couple talks at church, it was a great reminder why we need to set goals for ourselves. It’s important to have something to work towards, and to help make us better. There are many things that I can improve on, and this year I’m going to do my best to make those imperfections a little bit less of an imperfection. 🙂

If you’re looking for something to help you reach your goal, these printables are the perfect thing to help remind you to accomplish it! They’re cute enough to hang in your home or office, and remind you everyday what you’re striving for.

Wishing you all a wonderful New Year!

Night Before Christmas Gift Tags

I’m know we’re not the only ones, but it has always been a tradition in my home for each kid to open up one gift on Christmas Eve, our choice. It was so fun, and made it that much more exciting to see what was left under our tree the next morning. My husband’s family also got to open one gift before Christmas, but they were always pajamas. When I joined their family, I loved the idea that you would be getting a new set of pajamas each year (or every other year – that’s how we’ve worked out Thanksgiving and Christmas with our families).

While still carrying on my families tradition of opening one gift on Christmas Eve, I’ve converted to my husbands family tradition with making it a new set of pajamas each year for my kids. In order to figure out which gift our kids get to open the night before Christmas, I’ve made these gift tags to make it easier to find. You will no longer need to make extra notes on your gift tags reminding you to “OPEN ME ON CHRISTMAS EVE,” buy an extra roll of wrapping paper to determine which ones are the “night before Christmas” gifts (unless you enjoy doing that which isn’t a bad idea) or set them aside in another room until it’s time open.

Christmas Card Tags

Let’s be honest, Christmas Cards can get pretty pricey and sometimes it cuts into our Christmas shopping budget. It definitely cuts into ours. Our middle child’s birthday is 3 days after Christmas, mine is 2 weeks after Christmas, and the oldest is at the end of January… see what I mean? I can’t afford to spend too much money on Christmas cards, but I don’t want to sacrifice the look of my cards either. Luckily, this little project will turn your favorite family photo into a cute and festive Christmas card, and it’ll save you some money. Intrigued? I’ll tell you how.

Trick or Treat Popcorn Munch + Free Printable

halloween-printable-tag

It’s National Popcorn Popping month, and with Halloween around the corner, I’ve decided to “dress up my popcorn.” With all this candy floating around the stores, it’s hard to not want to buy any before Halloween, am I right? So if you’re like me, or have some extra candy lying around, you’ll want to try this popcorn recipe, because it is pretty stinkin’ good! And believe me when I say I will be making this again after my kids get their haul on Halloween.

Things you’ll need:

Original SkinnyPop Popcorn (4.4 oz) or 2 bags of microwave popcorn

Orange Candy Melts

2 Cups Chopped Chocolate (mixed variety)

Sprinkles

First of all, meet Danny. This recipe has been Danny tested and Danny approved! And his approval is important since he is our popcorn eating machine! 🙂

trick-or-treat-popcorn-munch-3

Pour half of your popcorn in a bowl and pour melted candy melts over the popcorn and mix well. Make sure you cover as much popcorn as you can with the candy melts.

trick-or-treat-popcorn-munch-4

popcorn-munch-trick-or-treat

Lay out your chocolate covered popcorn on a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil and sprinkle as little or as many sprinkles your heart desires. Stick it in the freezer for 5 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.

trick-or-treat-popcorn-munch-0

While your chocolate covered popcorn is in the freezer, roughly chop your candy. My mix included Twix, 3 Musketeers, Snickers, and Milkway, but you can use whatever chocolate candy you have.

trick-or-treat-popcorn-munch-5

Pull out your chocolate covered popcorn and start mixing in the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. If some of your chocolate popcorn is stuck together, go ahead and break it up, it doesn’t have to be perfect. If you’re serving this at a party, set aside some sprinkles and chocolate and sprinkle it on top.

Or if you’re handing this treat out to friends, use some bakers twine and this Halloween Printable to hand them out with! I hope you’re enjoying this time of year as much as we are!

4th of July Banner

4TH OF JULY BANNER

We are getting dec’d out in our home for 4th of July… sort of. I’ve always been a slacker at decorations during the holidays, not because I don’t want them. I blame the hubby, and the fact that sometimes I like to spend money on other things that last all year long. But, as we get further into our marriage, I hope to have a bazillion decorations set up for every holiday.

But, this banner is helping our home look more festive, and it’s perfect for the upcoming Olympics this August! You can keep this baby up for another month!
