DIY “To Try” List

We are looking forward to spending some time at home this weekend and our fun plans to take H to the Children’s Museum.  It is especially cool since the Mr. working on the renovation project at this museum.  H’s grandparents are coming over for the early Saturday morning excitement.  Along with this adventure over to Portsmouth and the required groceries/cleaning/laundry/church business, I’m also going to include a few Pinterest inspired DIYs.  First on the list is…


Foot Soak

” Mix 1/4 c Listerine (any kind but I like the blue), 1/4 c vinegar and 1/2 c of warm water. Soak feet for 10 minutes and when you take them out the dead skin will practically wipe off.” -alleges this Pinterest post  See link here.

I find this a little hard to believe, but I’m going to give it a go on Saturday.  

Project number 2 is to make 3 Helping the Homeless Bags.  


I thought this was a neat idea that I saw on pinterest.  The link carries you to this website.  I really like her quote that says “I’m fully aware that I can’t fix the problem of homelessness, but I shouldn’t allow the feeling of helplessness to keep me from doing something, anything for the people I come in contact with.”  This blog is a great resource in general.  Here is a link to the main page.  

Last one is a yummy treat for us at home.  No-Bake 3 Ingredient Cheerio Bars!  These look so easy that I might actually get to them this weekend! 




  • PREP TIME:  20 Min
  • TOTAL TIME:  30 Min
  • SERVINGS:  24


     3 tablespoons butter or margarine

bag (10.5 oz) miniature marshmallows (6 cups)
cups Cheerios® cereal
  • Spray bottom and sides of 13×9-inch pan with cooking spray. In large microwavable bowl, microwave butter and marshmallows uncovered on High about 2 minutes, stirring after each minute, until mixture is smooth. Remove from microwave.
  • Immediately stir in cereal until evenly coated. Pour cereal mixture into pan. With buttered back of a spoon, press mixture in pan until even. Cool at least 10 minutes.
  • With table knife, cut cereal mixture into 6 rows by 4 rows to make 24 bars. Store in loosely covered container.

Don’t these seem like they’d be the perfect, kid-reminiscing snack!?!?  Not an entirely fabulously clean dessert, but I think that I’ll make 1/2 the recipe.  At about 80 calories with whole grain, it’s decent.  We have oodles of Cheerios after my Sam’s Club purchase.  🙂

Overall, I’m looking so forward to another busy, fun-filled weekend.  Most importantly, I get to spend it with these guys!


Happy Hump Day!
