Disney Autograph book with quotes + free printable!

We got back from Disneyland and wow did we have fun! It was my first time back in 8 years and it has changed a lot. We endured the 95+ heat and crowds..but it was all worth!

I'm so excited to share these cute Disney Autograph books I made using Shutterfly! This was one project I knew I had to make! Having made photo books and other projects with Shutterfly in the past, this was a no-brainer. I love the quality of their books & have been so happy with how they turn out!

I went with a 5x7 Soft Cover book. The size was perfect! I actually thought it would be too small at first but its a little bigger then the books you can buy at Disneyland. This turned out to be great because since each character had more room to write (most of them have gloves on so writing in a small place would have been impossible), their signatures were bigger and easier to see!

Now instead of pictures on each page, I put a quote at the bottom. My daughter's book has a simple design on every other page as well.  We picked some of our favorite disney quotes from movies as well as a few from Walt Disney himself. Each quote is written in a different font and at the bottom of each page.

**I had a reader email me for the list of quotes so here they are:

The Most fantastic, magical things can happen,  and it all started with a wish.- Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio

A dream is a wish your heart makes. - Cinderella

All it takes is faith and trust, and a little bit of pixie dust. - Peter Pan

Adventure is out there! - Ellie, UP!

Laughter is Timeless, Imagination has no age, and dreams are forever. - Walt Disney

Our Fate Lies within us. You only only have to be brave enough to see it. - Princess Merida, Brave

You've Got a Friend in me.- Toy Story

There is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger then you seem, and smarter then you think. -Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh

Never Forget who you are. - Lion King

Together, even the smallest can achieve the greatest goal. - A Bug's Life

If you dream a thing more then once, Its sure to come true. - Princess Aurora, Sleeping Beauty

Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what inside that counts. - Aladdin

If you can dream it, you can do it. Walt Disney

Your never too old to be young- Snow White

Second star to the right and straight on till morning. Peter Pan

Speed. I am Speed.- Lightning Mcqueen, Cars

There's no one I would rather be then me- Wreck it Ralph

The dream is gone, but then theres hope.- Tarzan

Just Right-Click on the image below to save it to your computer. I changed the wording to "My Autograph Book".  Upload it as your cover page to your photo book.  You may need to adjust the size of it. There is also an option to lighten or darken it as well after you upload.

Here is my sweet family and I saying hi to pooh! We went with my parents as well and had an absolute blast. 
Thanks to Shutterfly for our fun Autography books! They were a hit and it's fun to look at the autographs and remember the fun time we had :)

13 Peach Recipes

I'm recently bought a box of peaches- not really knowing what I was getting myself into.  We are now up to our eye balls in peaches! After freezing some and making Peach Crisp (recipe from Our Best bites.. it was amazing!), I am now looking for new recipes to try! And I think I found some of the best.

A few recipes we will be trying are Peach Vanilla Syrup- we love berry sauce on our pancakes so peach syrup sounds yummy. Peach BBQ sauce? I never even thought of that! And Peaches on Pizza sounds interesting. I've had black berries on pizza before and was pleasantly surprised..so I bet peaches are amazing on pizza too!

I hope you check out each of these recipes!

Back To School: Don't Eat Pete Game

My son will be in Kindergarten this year! We will be having a back to school dinner the night before and I thought it would be fun to have a little game to play as well. We love Don't Eat Pet-  its the perfect game for kids! Do you remember my St. Patrick's Day Version? :)

We play with M & M's but any little snack or candy will work. 

Colored Chore Chart for Kids- Free Printables!

I love that line from Mary Poppins.. With every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. And snap, the jobs a game! Chores are becoming a big thing at our house. My son has had a few jobs to do each day for the past year, but not everything was done each day. Mostly just unloading the dishwasher, and the basics like cleaning up toys and brushing teeth. So this chart was much needed!!

He will be starting Kindergarten this year and I must admit.. I'm ready for the fall and for some structure in our day. I love summertime, but there is just something about a schedule.  I bought a huge magnet board from a friend and I knew this project would be perfect for it!

Our house isn't the biggest, but it's a house and we love it. Our kids are free to roam the house and play (except for our bedroom of course.) That means messes from popcorn we were eating while watching a movie or from our picnic lunch on a blanket. Or toys everywhere. But that also means they are old enough to help clean and pick-up the house right along with mom and dad. Jobs need to be completed before going to a friends house or playing the wii, watching tv, etc. Those things are privileges and need to be earned.

I printed and laminated the chore cards and then cut them out. These are just the basic things for him to help with each day and learn to do on his own. I'm not sure how homework will work since he isn only in kindergarten, but it will also pertain to reading books or doing workbooks that we have at home. If there are more chores to be done, they will certainly be added by mom :)

Oh and see that mom's choice card? Mom gets to pick that chore or chores that day. Maybe it will be vacuuming one day and dusting the next. And if mom isn't home.. then its dads choice of course.

My son helped me put the magnets on the back. It was a great time to talk about the chore chart with him. He was surprisingly excited for it!

Each chore card can be lined up underneath its corresponding color block. Just a different way to see what jobs are done! 

Chore Chart Printables are here.
All R & R Workshop printables are for personal use only.

We love the chart and will be adding some more chores and making another set for his sister as well. I hope this chart will help make your life a little more organized like it did for mine! 

Oven Roasted Parmesan Potatoes

I like simple recipes. Life gets crazy somedays and its nice to have a few recipes that I can make in under an hour. This is one of our favorites!  My dad made these potatoes when we visited a few years ago and I have been making them ever since!

We don't have potatoes often but sometimes you don't want them baked or mashed, and this recipe just hits the spot!

8 red potatoes
1 Tbs olive oil
sea salt
parmesan cheese

1. Preheat your oven to 400*. Wash and scrub your potatoes, leaving the skin on. Cut into cubes.
2. Place potatoes in a 9x13 pan (or oven safe pan) and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle sea salt and cheese onto potatoes and stir in pan. You can add garlic or spices as well.
3. Put cheese onto potatoes and place in oven. Bake for 30 minutes or until potatoes are cooked.
4. Sprinkle a little more cheese on top of potatoes and put into oven until melted.


Very simple! I like making this when we have chicken or pork chops. Add a veggie and your meal is done! Also a great side-dish for a party or bbq.

LDS Printables- Confetti Dot Temple Print & Mission Print

I've had many people ask me about the prints in the my kids room, that I thought I would share them today!

I love this confetti print! I knew I wanted a picture of the lds temple in the kids room. I thought the confetti around the temple was a cute touch to the print ;) 

I love this pink print, but you can custom order other colors as well.

I didn't put this print on my son's wall only because it pertains to him. I just chose to put this print on his gallery wall ;) I thought the stripes and colors went more with the pieces in his mini gallery. And since I love stripes theses days.. it just made sense!
