Here a new Kohls Spring Capsule wardrobe. This one works well even if it is a little cooler where you live since we added a sweater and blazer.  I love the Lauren Conrad Disney’s Collection Tee. I am seeing a preview of the new Cinderella this week and wish I already owned this tee. I love that it is Disney but glam too!

I am a HUGE fan of the Lauren Conrad Pleated Top. This has over 55 positive reviews. I think this top will be very slimming as well. I am buying a few to mix and match with items already in my closet.  This capsule is great because it has everyday wear and some more dressy looks too!

Crock Pot or Slow Cooker Heart Healthy Chicken Tacos

crock pot or slow cooker heart healthy chicken tacos recipe. So tasty and easy too!

Last week I told you about the awesome Address Your Heart with Campbell’s Pinterest sweepstakes and a little bit about how I am trying to live a more heart healthy life.

Campbell has a whole section on the Campbell’s Kitchen website of easy great recipes that are heart healthy and I adapted their slow cooker chicken taco recipe for my family. It is so easy to make and EVERYONE in my family loved it. That is a huge accomplishment because there always seems to be one person who isn’t very happy with dinner. I will admit both girls were a little worried about the chicken when they saw it but they loved it once they tried it. I didn’t include the green peppers and onions because I knew my daughters would balk at eating those. If you have a more adventurous family, I would be sure to include them. [Read more…]

Cute and Easy DIY Chalkboard Menu Board

Make your own DIY Chalkboard Menu Board. So easy and cute too! Lots of ways to personalize this project for your home.


Chalkboards are such a staple piece in my kitchen and they’re perfect for menu planning, notes, important dates and more. I love to keep a certain style in my kitchen and haven’t been able to find the right chalkboard so I decided to create my own using a gorgeous Paper Mache board, chalkboard paint and a paint brush. This entire project cost under $5 to complete and I’m in love!

Here is how to make your own cute and easy DIY Chalkboard Menu Board or Meal Planner

Supplies Needed:

– Paper Mache Shape (Found at Hobby Lobby for $1.99)

Martha Stewart Chalkboard Paint (Found at Michaels $2.99)

– Paint Brush (Found at Dollar Tree, a set of 3 for $1)

Liquid Chalk or white chalk (Found at any craft store or on Amazon)


DIY Chalkboard Menu materials chalkboard paint

  1. Lay your Paper Mache piece on a layer of old newspapers, magazines, cardboard or anything to protect your flooring surface.
  2. Using your chalkboard paint start by painting the surface of your chalkboard and then cover the sides with chalkboard paint as well. Allow to dry for 15 minutes or so and apply another layer of chalkboard paint to the top and sides and allow it to dry for another 15 minutes.

    Make your own Chalkboard

  3. Once the entire board is dry take a piece of white chalk and using the side cover the entire board and then erase it with a dry eraser. This will prep the board for your chalk sayings, drawings, menu plans and more. I love to use liquid chalk because it gives a crisper and bolder appearance.
  4. Feel free to hang this board up and place whatever important information you want displayed in your home.
  5. Enjoy your fun new DIY Chalkboard Menu Board!


I love how this project is so easy and frugal too but makes a huge impact. You could easily create one for your kid’s room and leave the fun notes or reminders. You could put one in your mud room with things to do etc.  There are so many places a chalkboard would be useful and cute in your home!

These small steps help me make heart-healthy lifestyle choices every day. I feel healthier and I have even lost 20 pounds!
