Creamy, Gluten-Free Spinach Rotini

This might be my only post this week. We have so much to do before we move to the farm on Friday. We are very lucky, though, because Rob’s dad flew in tonight to help us out! He and Shannon, Rob’s sister, are both going to road trip with us down to the farm. We are so grateful for their help.

Creamy, Gluten-Free Spinach Rotini

I made this yummy dinner last week. I’ve been trying to use up all the food in the house, and last week we happened to have a bunch of spinach, ricotta cheese, and pasta. Ta-dah! A yummy, creamy pasta dish.

First I assembled my ingredients: a box of rotini Continue reading

15 Minute Dollar Store Mirror Makeover

15 Minute Dollar Store Mirror Makeover

It’s officially 6 days until we move to the farm! I’ve been packing, packing, packing all week and there’s still so much to do, but when I saw this sad little dollar store mirror that I bought long, long ago, inspiration struck and I decided to give it a makeover! It was the perfect break from the stress of moving.

Even though pretty much everything is in boxes, I made sure that my crafts stuff is accessible. (You never know when inspiration might strike. Example: Continue reading

Color Sorting Activity for Toddlers

Color Sorting Activity for Toddlers - Farm Fresh Family

We’ve been working with Clare on color recognition a lot lately, but I didn’t realize how much progress she’s made until we did this activity today!

To do this activity I just pulled out the pom poms I picked up at the dollar store last week and my trusty silicone cupcake liners (you’ve seen them before in my bento boxes.) Strangely enough, Continue reading

Pinterest Roundup: 5 Pretty Window Seats

Moving is super stressful (you do not want to see my house right now), but my favorite part is getting to the new place and making it a home. Right now, I’m getting really excited about getting Clare’s room set up and pretty. Her room in the cabin is unfinished right now, so I’ll  have a blank slate to work with. My favorite feature of her new sunny little room is the built in chest right under a window that I plan to transform into a girly, cozy window seat. What little girl doesn’t want a window seat? I always did as a kid. What a perfect place to sit and read a book or daydream!

Here’s some of the inspiration I’ve been finding on Pinterest:

1. I love the mix of prints in a pretty pink and purple palette in this gorgeous room.
