Throwback Thursday: Kids Chore Chart

2 years ago, at the early start of my blogging career, I had made the first attempt of a chore chart for my boys. Still young, beginning to read, and also still trying to understand responsibilities within the home… I thought it was was great way for him to show mommy and daddy that he can help around the house.

At the time my children were 7 and 4, it was a bit pre-mature for me to create a chore chart that wasn’t so “kid-friendly,” for them to use. Mason jar, and post clip. I might as well have painted “Job for hire,” on the wooden slab!!

In honor of Throwback Thursday, here’s the actual blog post.

Today, my boys are now 10 & 6. Both capable of reading. My older son has grown up already understanding house chores, and what his responsibilities are in the household. Having him is also a great example for his little brother to understand the concept of working hard around the house, and having to do it without mommy or daddy telling you to.

Earlier in the month, I had found a wall display board at my local Goodwill for $5. In perfect condition, I purchased it, and new I needed a display board to communicate the kids chores.

Here, I’d like to share my new and improved — or updated chore chart!!!

As the kids get older, it’s best that their chores get harder, as they can gain more responsibility.

For my older son, his chores are more difficult than his little brothers.

Here’s a few examples I have posted for my 10 year old.
Ages 8-10 would be capable of doing this as well

  • Make Bed Every Morning
  • Unload Dryer
  • Fold Clothes
  • Vacuum Main Living Areas
  • Wash Car
  • Put Away Dishes 
  • Make Lunch & Simple Meals
  • Prepare Small Snacks
  • Pull Weeds
  • Water Outdoor Plants
  • Feed/Clean Pets

As for my 6 year old, his chores consist of:

  • Wipe Down Bathroom Counters
  • Keep Living Room Clean/Organized
  • Sort Recycling
  • Put Away Dirty Clothes
  • Match Socks
  • Dust
  • Put Away Toys
  • Wipe Spills
  • Vacuum Small Corners
  • Water Indoor Plants

Nothing fancy riiight? It’s straight to the point. Look, review, take action. For my little one, I do have to read it to him, but the chart is definietly something for the boys to refer to.

As my oldest son turned 10 this month, it was just a reminder that I’ve been at parent for 10 YEARS!!! Yes girl, yes! Out of the 31 years I’ve been on earth, 10 years I’ve been a parent! So, hopefully that would give me more credibility on my blog as a dependable resource for motherhood. Eh?! I hope so.

This time around with my updated chore chart, I’ve left it a little similar like the first one, but this time, with a marketing tactic with my neon colored messaged. My oldest son loves it.

(It’s a great reminder for him, that along with chores, comes allowance at the end of the week.)

Tassel Tutorial

Let’s continue adding more to the tapestry!! To add more of a detailed finish on our tapestry, we’d need a nice accessory that creates movement. Usually, tapestries  are multi-colored & multi-textured. Creating texture, movement, and more color will emphasize the placemat, I mean our tapestry. ;P

Featuring 4 different color of embroidery floss, adding them as tassels, will even create more texture and movement to our piece. This DIY is perfect for a nursery, bedroom, or any living space! Let’s start making our tassels!!

What You’ll Need:

  • Embroidery Floss
    I had four colors, all picked from the same color theme of the placemat.
  • Scissors (Sharp fine ones!)
  • Sewing kit (Needle and thread)
  • Thread ( same colors you’re planning to use for your tassels.
  • Square cardboard.
    Whatever the size, your square will be, will be the size of your tassel.
    I used a size of 2″ x 2″inch.

Where To Buy:

Creating tassels, can be very time consuming, so put on your favorite show on Netflix, and have a crafter-noon! I tried my very best capturing each step while creating my tassel, so please refer to the photos in case my step-by-step directions seem unclear. Here we go!

Directions:

  1. Take your embroidery floss and place against the cardboard square, leaving an 1.5″inch out.
  2. Wrap a few times around the square. I wrapped mine exactly 20 times.
  3. Clip the rest of the floss off, and tie at the top.
  4. Cut a 5-6″inch long floss, off the same color and tie in the middle of one side of the cardboard square.
    This will be the top of the tassel.
  5. Push the ream of embroidery floss off the cardboard square.
  6. Pull the hanging exposed top of the tie up, and cut ream on the opposite end.
  7. Cutting another strand of floss, tie together the entire group of floss, creating the top “poof” portion of the tassel.
  8. Double/triple knot the tie, and trim off excess floss.
  9. Trim floss down, to desired length.
  10. REPEAT steps over, until you have enough tassels for your tapestry.
    I made 11 tassels for tapestry, using 4 different colors.
  11. Once all tassel’s have been made, style your tassels in a cool color pattern that ties in with your placemat.
  12. Sew on tassels on bottom edge of placemat. Secure, and you’re done!!

This easy and affordable wall tapestry brings a small touch of bold colors throughout. Subtle, simple, and boho all at the same time!! Hung on a wooden dowel, its true beauty comes in its simplicity of color yet variety of colors and textures! This once placemat, now turned tapestry is sure to add charm to any room!!

If you liked this tutorial, or found it helped, please follow me on Pinterest!! Click the Pinterest icon above and add to your Pinterest board!!! I had such a great time creating this, I actually want to make more to scatter around the home, and also start making a few for special holidays and occasions!!

Placemat Tapestry

This week, I’ll be crushing through a series of wall art ideas I’ve created, or have been inspired by other creators via Pinterest or YouTube. From sharing easy home decor posts focusing on filling up our walls with inexpensive, budget friendly decor! We all have been seeing this great wall tapestries on Pinterest, as well as in the department store from Target, World Market to UrbanOutfitters. These wall tapestries bring in the Bohemian vibe into any home.

Create a focal point above your bed with a hippie bedcover mandala/boho tapestry to a, relaxedwoven hanging piece that warms up a wall. I personally, love geometric designs with tassels, and tribal global prints. These neutral designs, and tribal chic trends add great accents to any hallway or living space.

In this post, I’ll create the EASIEST tribal tapestry that looks to chic, your friends will be asking where you purchased it from!!!! This “hand made wall art,” will be perfect looking on walls with your Interior. Easy to hang on walls too!!

What You’ll Need:

  • Decorative Placemat.
    (I purchased mine at Target) Many stores have fantastic prints you can use, especially for the summer. But overall, any seasonal printed fabric works for a project like this.
  • Twine/Or necklace chain
  • Hot Glue (Optional for those who aren’t into sewing).
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Wooden Rectangular Dowel
  • Hacksaw
  • Hammer/Nails
  • Sandpaper
  • Embroidery Floss

Directions:

This is so easy, I’m sure many of you will read over my instructions, by just looking at my photos. BUT, for those of you who are technical learners in reading things (like my husband), here it is:

  1. Position your placemat long-sided down.  Place the wooden dowel rod above the top of the placemat, and measure the exact place where you’d like to cut.
  2. Using a hack saw, I purchased mine at WalMart for only $4, carefully saw your wooden dowel, and sand down the freshly cut edge.
  3. Using your hammer and a few nails, nail in your placement to the back of wooden dowel.
    If you don’t have a hammer and nail, you can easily just hot glue the placemat to your wooden dowel.
  4. Lastly, take your necklace chain, and nail it in, and the ends of the wooden dowel. I used slim nail, with a fairly larger head, in order to keep the chain in place.**Make sure there’s enough in length to support the tapestry to be hung on any wall.**

And viola!! Short, quick and painless DIY thats totally trendy and looks just like the ones from the Nate Berkins Collection at Target or straight from UrbanOutfitters!!!!!! Stay tuned for the embroidery floss tassel tutorial up next, to add more to this easy tapestry!!!!

 

Birthday In Beverly Hills

Beverly Hills is a city in California’s Los Angeles County. Home to many Hollywood stars, it features the upscale shopping street of Rodeo Drive. The expansive Beverly Gardens Park has fountains and rose gardens, plus an illuminated Beverly Hills sign. Beverly Hills is the place in LA where celebrities and the fabulous local residents come to do their normal every day-to-day errands, what better way to celebrate my 31st birthday and “celebrity watch,” in their neck of the woods!!

Two weeks ago, the family and I took a trip to Los Angeles. Being a California native, born and raised in the Bay Area, SoCal has always been one of those locations you always want to visit once a year. Los Angeles has so many cities just within in 502 square miles alone! That’s a perimeter of the city of 342 miles!!!

Having done many trips within mine and my husbands lifetime, this would be the first for our children to remember the city of entertainment and cinema. Before this trip was made, I remembered my older son saying “I want to go to Hollywood mommy.” He said that for about a week straight. It was probably a commercial of Universal Studios Hollywood that got his attention. So, when it came to deciding where our summer road trip would be, it was no surprise that LA wasn’t a bad idea.

As always Airbnb is our go to for our travel accommodations. The online marketplace and hospitality service, enables travelers to lease or rent short-term lodging including vacation rentals, apartment rentals, or homestays. As mentioned before, the husband and I live through Airbnb on a monthly basis for business and for holiday.

Check out more of our Airbnb stays | HERE |

From San Francisco, Sonoma, Seattle, and Portland!

Los Angeles is a sprawling Southern California city and the center of the nation’s film and television industry. Near its iconic Hollywood sign, studios such as Paramount Pictures, Universal and Warner Brothers offer behind-the-scenes tours. On Hollywood Boulevard, TCL Chinese Theatre displays celebrities’ hand and footprints, the Walk of Fame honors thousands of leading light film stars and vendors selling maps to stars’ homes.

We stayed in Beverly Hills, as it was centrally located within the heart of LA. West Hollywood wasn’t to far, Pasadena, Santa Monica, and Venice Beach, to name a few. Just like any major large city, our stay was a cute apartment walking distance to Rodeo Drive, and easy access to Wilshire Blvd & Beverly Drive, which include many boutique shops and eateries.

 During our stays in different cities, the family and I love to stick with every day happenings, vs. the major touristy spots. BUT, with the exception of first timers for our children, (and since we were so close to many of these Hollywood things,) we did manage to take them to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hollywood sign, and of course a family day trip to Universal Studios Hollywood, which was covered by CHASE SAPPHIRE RESERVE , giving us Elite travel benefits! Thanks CHASE!
Love to travel and dine? Check out Chase Sapphire Reserve Credit Card. This was our second trip using our points that covered a great amount of vacation! From Universal Studios, to our car rental! All FREE!!

After the checking out the happenings all throughout Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Universal City, the family decided to drive out towards Pasadena. Northeast of downtown Los Angeles, in the center, Old Pasadena is a shopping and dining district known for its Victorian and art deco buildings. The Rose Bowl is a sports stadium known for hosting the Rose Bowl Game, an annual college football clash, but besides the football, they also host the Pasadena Rose Bowl Flea Market!!!  To any flea market goer in California, or anywhere else, this is one flea market to check out in your lifetime. Unfortunately, we were a week to early.

But no worries! I was recommended to the Pasadena City College Flea | PCC Flea Market, which is open every Sunday! So, we packed our cooler, with fruit, water bottles, and sandwiches and called it a flea market/Pasadena day! Oh, the PCC Flea was filled with an eclectic array of crafts, apparel, antiques & other goodies! My husband even managed to fine tons of vinyl records, and my boys found some awesome HotWheels, gem stones, and Pokemon cards!!

When visiting Los Angeles, you have to check out the beaches. Of course, Southern California is known for their amazing beaches, so why not check one out. We brought the boys to Santa Monica beach. Leaving nothing but footprints, and time to kill, the family and I relaxed in the sand. Admiring the beach waves, listening to the laughter and screams coming from the roller-coasters off the pier. Summer was happening, and it was also my birthday. 6 days spent in Los Angeles. Hollywood, food, celebrities watching, people watching, coffee shops, boutiques and burgers, and playing frisbee under the Hollywood sign.

It was a perfect visit to LA. And I’d always come back for more. Thanks LA, good times.

 

Craigslist Find! Board Game Cabinet

Summer is in full effect!! Vacations have been made, weekend visits to the Bay Area are planned, summer birthday’s to celebrate, and afternoons at the pool!!!! When we’re my family and I are not always on the go, there are streaks of days when we’re at home, avoiding the crazy three digit heat. Being locked up inside, gives up the options of toys, reading, coloring books, play-doh, crafts, computer time, tv and video games. BUT let’s face it, they’re mainly on screens. As much as I’d like to limit screen time during the summer, it’s best that I creak up their day with time frames of classic games. The “original,” games before the iPad apps.

Last summer, I scored this beautiful wooden glass case cabinet which had future plans for me to repaint. BUT, it ended up sitting in my garage for a couple months. Life gets in way sometimes you know (Basketball season, field trips, weddings, and oh, the stinking holidays.) I’ve finally managed to get my Craigslist purchase out of the garage, and just bring it in my home! So without further ado, I’d like to share my new home furniture piece that holds our favorite family games!!

One thing that I love doing during the summer is Craigslist-ing!!! With an open schedule in-sync with the boys summer vacation, I too — am on summer vacation (I work under the same school district FYI) so Craigslist and letgo, have been my guilty pleasures. From avoiding any Netflix and any binge watching, I chose to search around these digital penny-saver platforms to find the next piece for my home!

Not familar with letgo? Download the app, and just scroll around!

I’m sure there’s something you may find!

I scored this fantastic wooden glass case cabinet from a nearby city in Sacramento. My original thoughts were to flip it, but I’ve grown to love the look, as it matches our stair banister, and kitchen cabinets. The original knobs have these cute dainty flowers, with gold lining, and the for glass panels on each door reminds us what’s inside.

After collecting so many games from the classics, board games, card games, brain games and magic trick sets, over the years of birthdays and holidays, we’ve definietly grown a very large collection. It was always stored in random places from my sons closet, under the coffee table, and in a zippered closure fabric storage bin from the Container Store.  | Container Store – Storage Box REISENTHEL |

Placing all our family board games in an accessible place, keeping them seen, and tidy, is a win, win in my house. Oh, and did I also forget to mention…..The cabinet was only $60! #Boom #MicDrop

 

Etsy Inspired Pom Pom Baskets | Dollar Tree DIY

Whoa nelly!!!! It’s definietly been awhile since my last post! Can’t have any excuses, except I’ve been enjoying summer!!!! When June hit, summer vacation kicked in real hard as the family and I went on vacation to Beverly Hills to celebrate my 31st birthday! That’s right, Beverly Hills!!! The city in California’s Los Angeles County, home to many Hollywood stars!! I promise there will be a full travel post on that, which will be posted in my Family Adventure’s Page of my blog! But if you’re itching for some travel, feel free to check out that page for some traveling inspo!! | CLICK HERE for more TRAVEL |

After settling in after a long trip in Southern California, and back in the swing of things here in Sacramento, I was itching for more organization around the house. The kids are on break, and I needed more storage to make the house in “order,” to keep their HotWheels, gem stones, BeyBlades, marbles, fidget spinners and other knick-knacks in placed. I searched around my home for containers, because of course, I’m such a container/basket hoarder. Low and behold, and had a bunch of Dollar Tree wicker baskets hiding in the garage!!!

To give there baskets a facelift, I had extra pom poms from my latest DIY craft for my Summer Basket. Cheap, affordable, and inexpensive options to jazz up these simple baskets, that make DIYing so easy, you don’t even need a hot glue gun!!

Here, I present to you my Pom Pom Baskets!!! Pom poms are the summer trend for any basket! Etsy, to Pinterest, to Nordstrom, and Target you’ll spot these adorable precious poms poms from a mile!! If you search on Pinterest and Etsy, these summer baskets with pom poms are the “it,” thing! Instead of purchasing these beauties, why not just make them?!?!

Of course, a basket you can purchase anywhere. You can easily get wicker baskets from the thrift store, or even the DollarTree. Next, you need yarn pom poms. If you haven’t seen my post yet, you can check it out right below:

Thrift Store Picture Frames

The first official weekend has finally passed, and I’m here at home styling any shelf I can spot within my home, that needs some additional detail. An easy personal touch to the home are family photos. Memories of the past, mile stones, or special occasions. Whenever the family and I have our yearly family photoshoot I almost immediately print them all out. From standard size 4×6 prints to 5x7s….By natural instinct, I print them out, to get the task of printing out of the way.

This weekend, I had finally gotten the opportunity to address the photo prints, and put them into frames. When it comes to home decor, buying frames is one of those home finishing burden’s no one really wants to do. Just like rolling up clean socks at the end of folding all your clean laundry. It’s the task that you saved at the end.

Well, I have some budget friendly/picture frame news for you!! The thrift shop has oodles and oodles of picture frames waiting for you!! Picture frames at the thrift store have been my staple for while. From $0.20-$.70, these decorative beauties have been saving my so much money, as well as providing my photos a well structured, good quality home to admire in my living space.

When it comes to shopping for furniture, or any home accent piece, I know that first-hand experience is important in helping you make an informed decision about the item you are purchasing. It’s easy to walk into Target, IKEA, ZGallerie, and Pier1Imports, but we all don’t have the funds to do so. So, thrift stores have been my first choice in anything home decor.

Thrift store shopping isn’t for everyone, BUT flea markets, garage sales, and Craigslist are also great alternatives for secondhand shopping. While others love spending $5-$15 for a one 5×7 frame, I can enjoy my 5-7 golden frames from the thrift store. You decide. Your savings. Your style.

Happy thrifting!!!

 

Parenting Feels

I’m one of those young moms. I had my first son when I was 21, and my second son at 24. If you haven’t done the math yet, I’m now 30 years old. Today, my 6 year old completed Kindergarten, and my oldest son is moving on to the fifth grade. The end of school year has finally arrived, and I’m now stuck with a  going-to-be 1st grader and 5th grader for 2.5 months.

Earlier today, my eldest son and I were walking to get drinks at a local boba cafe. While waiting for our drinks, my son sees two of his martial art buddies come in, and he gives me the eye signal to leave him. I receive the message and take my drink and sit outside. As I’m sitting outside I watch through the glass to see him mingle with his friends. At this time, I have so many feelings rushing through me, the disappointment of him dismissing me, for his friends, excitement in watching my son grow and mingle with his friends, and proud, that I was able to read his discreet signs of communicating with me.

I clearly remember when I was my sons age (9-10years old), being in the 4th and 5th grade and wanting social time with my friends. It’s that age of having your own social life, being dropped off to birthday parties for a few hours, and also sleepovers. Times, when I wanted to communicate with my mom about wanting her to step-aside from “my” fun always came out the wrong way.

I did such a poor job at communicating to my mother how I wanted to hang with friends. At times I would be clear and direct, but other times, obviously to avoid embarrassment, I’d bark out in an ugly tone to my mother on wanting to hang out with friends.

For that I am sorry to my mom. I was young. Naive. And spoiled.

Now, as an adult, and as a mother of a young child entering the chapter of having friends outside of his parents and younger sibling, it’s time for me to let my son break free just a little bit. Gain that self-confidence, and have him express who he is to others his age.

Gawd, it’s such milestone….I call this Parenting Feels. A rush of mixed emotions seeing your offspring grow into the people who they are coming to be.

Are you experiencing the parenting feels around this age? Doesn’t it feel weird? Exciting? Scary?

Comment below, I’d love to read your Parenting Truths!!

 

DIY Summer Pom Poms

It’s the last week of school for the kids, and I’ve already booked a full week ahead for us before we leave on our first summer vacation trip!!! From doctors appointments, seeing the orthodontist, dentist, and seeing optometrist. When I get a block of time when the kids are off from school, I typically go mom-crazy and book the kids doctors appointments. With all the appointments, errands and things I have to do, I have to be summer ready with a go to bag. And I’m not talking about no go-to mom messenger/cross body bag,  I’m talking about the big woven summer bags you see trending around.

It’s called the pom pom basket, or pom pom beach bag, or maybe the straw tote with pom poms. Whatever, you call them, its the bag of the summer!! Have it ready in the car, filled with your wallet, a go do light weight park blanket, water bottles, and snacks. It’s everything you need filled in this fun carry bag.

Last year, I had already a woven basket purchased from Target, but the pom poms were not included. What better way to add some pom poms with some yarn I already had!

Now, the lazy me didn’t want to do the technique of measuring out a cardboard circle, and creating a tool to do this. I honestly, dont have time for that. So after a few Pinterest & YouTube searches, I found the technique that works for me! Follow along my quick tutorial, to make these beautiful yarn pom poms, that only took me about 45 mins to make!

 

DISCLAIMER:

Step-by-step heavy, BUT if you’re a visual person, I took enough photos for you to follow.

Good luck & have fun!!

What you’ll need:

  1. Yarn (Colors of your choice)
    I chose a color scheme that paired well with my Target woven basket.
    (Dark teal, aqua blue, and a neutral cream.)
  2. Scissors
  3. Chair

Directions:

  1. Take your chair and flip it over, so that the legs are facing up.
  2. Tie your yarn on one leg of the chair, and start wrapping it around the leg across the tied-end.
  3. Keep wrapping, until your yarn is at 1/2 of the thickness you want your pom pom to be at.
  4. Next, take a string of yarn the length of how long you want the pom pom to hang from your bag.
    (It’s ok to do long, you can always snip off the access length.)
  5. Tie at point of how big you’d like your pom pom to be.
    TIP: Be sure to wrap the yarn using the strength of 2 yarn strands. This will lock the pom pom in place securely.
  6. Depending on the size of your desired pom pom, you repeat the tied knot along the wrap of the yard strands.Since I wanted larger pom poms, I only tied two ties. This made about 2 inch thick in diameter pom pom balls.
  7. Once completely tied and secured, cut through the strands leaving 1/2 the size of the pom pom, having equal lengths on each side of the tied knot.
  8. Now, you should have a bundle of card, with a tied knot and two strands hanging from it. Almost like a bow-tie like shape.
  9. Fluff out the strands creating the full figure of the pom pom.
  10. From here, using your scissors, trim down the pom pom to create a fuller, and goofier pom pom.
  11. Once complete, take 2-3 pom poms and hang them off your basket bag. Tie securely.

And that’s it! Repeat the steps over and over, until you’ve gathered enough pom poms for your bag or project. I ended making a couple for future projects!!!

 

Did you find this DIY tutorial fun and easy?! Comment below, I’d love to read your comments, what can I improve on, or what other DIYs shall I do next?!

 

Riviera Palm Springs

Last weekend, I shared one of the hotels I stayed at during a Mom Springs getaway in Palm Springs. Ace Hotel, was the UrbanOutfitters BOHO desert dreamland for travel goers. In this post, I want to share the second hotel I stayed at in Palm Springs. Summer vacation is right at our finger tips, so get ready to get inspired to book your next trip to the Riviera Palm Springs.

Riviera Palm Springs

1600 N Indian Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, CA 92262

The Riviera Palm Springs gives off that chic glam Hollywood style vibe. From polished finishes, leather sofas in the hallways, to plenty of Vegas red, transparent details on the ceiling. This hotel screams a Modern Palm Springs at its finest.

At the pool area grab a lounge chair, first come first serve, unless you reserve a cabana. Enjoy poolside, ice cream, cocktails, and a good summer read lounging by the pool. Hotel staff is ready at your service. Ice cream on me!!!

All throughout the hotel, the ornate mod details from lit up walls glowing with warm hues, to the carpet patterns, all scream, “We love patterns, colors, and fun!” The Riviera, won’t ever let you forget how well they decorate around their site. Hot colors, against white is a continuous theme.

Overall, the Riviera Palm Springs is a great resort! Dog friendly. DJs. Beautiful decor. Oh! And fire pits! Comfy cabanas,  spacious rooms, and plenty of free space to relax privately in the common areas. They havean incredibly accommodating staff, that make you feel welcomed. Grab a double Pina Colada at the poolside bar and float to your hearts content.

So have I convinced you yet to book your next stay at the Riviera?! If not, overall, Palm Springs?!?!?!  If you haven’t just yet planned your summer, Palm Springs may be a city to check out this summer!!
