Lego Star Wars Valentines Day Cards

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, there sat a mother desperate for a quick and easy Valentine Day’s card for her kiddo.

Fortunately we have the perfect Valentine Day card for you that is quick, easy and inexpensive! A Lego Star Wars Valentines Card!!

My 5 year old has found the world of Star Wars and all I hear is Skywalker this and light saber that and so when I asked him what kind of Valentines he wanted to give out, I already knew the answer.

All you need for this awesome card is a color printer, hole punch and a quick trip to your local bargain store (Dollar Tree or 99 Cent Store) to purchase a multi-pack of small glow sticks.  I simply printed the design, hole punched the card and taped a glow stick to the back.  Easy peasy and oh so Jedi-like!

{Easy} Crockpot Greek Chicken - Only 3 ingredients!

Our Pinner of the Week, Kelli from Adventures in ChildRearing, has an amazing looking Creamy Crockpot Chicken recipe on her site that inspired us to make our own version this week.

Our crockpot chicken was super juicy and very yummy and we only used 3 ingredients!

What you will need:

  • Chicken (we used 5 chicken thighs )
  • Mayonaise – 1 Cup
  • Garlic
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Water
  • Lemon Juice (optional)

Just put the chicken into the crockpot (we put ours in frozen) Add the mayo and season to taste with the garlic, italian seasoning and a dash of lemon juice.  Add in about 3/4 cup of water and turn the crockpot on high for about 5 hours.  You really can’t mess it up!

Next time we are going to serve it up with pita bread and enjoy this super easy, Crockpot Greek Chicken.

Feeling inspired?

Now it’s your turn.  First, be sure to check out all of her pins and posts and follow Adventures in ChildRearing on Pinterest! Next, let us know what pin or post you were inspired to try and your results!  Have you tried this pin or any others from Adventures in ChildRearing?

If so, leave a comment (you can add links and images!)

We have been hearing a lot lately about different Pinterest strategies meant to get your pins in front of more people.  One of these strategies is deleting your old, under performing pins.

The idea is to only serve up the pins that are getting repinned.  All of those pins that you may have pinned in the past that for whatever reason never got a single repin… delete them!

Check out our handy guide to deleting old pins here – The Super Easy Guide to Deleting Pinterest Pins in Bulk

Should you delete your Pinterest Pins?

 

Sarah Titus just wrote a great article that lists 9 Reasons You Should Be Deleting Your Pins.  She goes into detail about how Pinterest looks at boards and her results from deleting her old pins.

Sarah says:

“I continued deleting all my pins on my account that had less than 5 repins. Immediately, I started seeing Pinterest respond. They were giving me more repins. They were showing my stuff to other people and whereas the MOST repins I was getting before I started all this, was like 30 repins. Now, it’s closer to 100!!! I have gotten repins that are 300 and 1,000 and many in the 100’s. No longer am I getting 30’s. I’m getting 100’s. Most of my pins now get over 5 repins, even the ones that don’t do well at all.”

Wow!  For sure we will be going through our old boards and deleting underperforming pins, how about you?

Do you delete old pins?  How does it help your Pinterest boards?

It’s fall and with fall comes pumpkin…pumpkin EVERYTHING!!! Now I’m a girl who loves fall, and I like pumpkin, but to be honest I don’t need pumpkin added to all my food.  I do like to know when it’s worth doing a pumpkin recipe though.  Here’s my latest try, pumpkin waffles, from this pin: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/282460207852732547/

Now to be honest, I didn’t make the apple cider syrup.  I had a new maple syrup I wanted to try, and I really didn’t feel like making two things.  I know, I’m lazy.  These waffles are a little bit of work, they were still easy enough to attempt on a Tuesday morning.

They have a pumpkin flavor without being overly pumpkin.  I do recommend that you use a standing mixer for the egg whites.  The recipe requires you to separate the eggs and to whip the whites to soft peaks.  It make the waffles light and fluffy inside.  Took a little time, but not too hard if you have a standing mixer of any kind.  They were crisp on the outside and soft inside, just how I like my waffles.  These would be perfect for a waffle bar, or if you have company in the mornings.  I turn the oven on to 170 to keep the waffles warm so I can get a few made to let us all eat at the same time.

I think they were great!  My kiddos ate two whole waffles and I made pancakes with the extra batter and they ate one of those too.  You know it’s a success when your kids out eat you!

They aren’t sweet, so if you wanted to add sweetness you could make the apple cider syrup, or cut up apples and cook them down with some brown sugar, butter and cinnamon to pour over the top.  Or you could even make a pecan praline type topping, that would be amazing!! Honestly you could make that part the night before and just reheat it.  If you just want them with a touch of sweetness spread some butter and add a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar.  They were great with the maple syrup too!! Enough options, now you know these are yummy and have just enough pumpkin to make you feel like fall has come no matter what it feels like outside.

Not the best picture but you get the idea…yummy pumpkin waffles no matter what the topping!
