Greek Flatbread Turkey Sandwiches

These Greek Flatbread Sandwiches are delicious!  We have turkey sandwiches in our house once a week or so and this Greek flatbread is such a nice flavor variation from our typical sandwich bread.

My husband brought home a package of this flatbread a couple of months ago and it has been a staple in our kitchen ever since for a wide variety of meals.

Here is how to make our Greek Flatbread Turkey Sandwiches.

Breastfeeding A Toddler - 10 Tips, Tricks & Experiences

While pregnant with Peanut, I was looking forward to nursing her.  I knew that this was not a guarantee, as breastfeeding often comes with complications and doesn't work for every mother.  But I have been blessed with a smooth and successful breastfeeding experience.

And now I find myself nursing my toddler!  (The term extended breastfeeding refers to breastfeeding your baby after their first birthday.)  I had no idea what to expect in my breastfeeding journey when I started, but I have sure learned a lot these past 18 months!

Here are my 10 tips, tricks and experiences to nursing a toddler:

Decorate for the 4th of July with Free Printables!

Independence Day is only 2 weeks away!  June is flying by so fast!  I hope the weather stays nice for all of the firework shows.

Below are two free Independence Day printables for you to save, print and use as you like!  I see them printed out on card stock and placed around the food table.  Or you could punch a hole in each top corner, tie with string and hang on the front door to welcome your guests and set the festive mood!

Check out my Free Printables page to see all of my free printables.

Free 'Celebrate!' 4th of July Printable #independenceday #printable #celebrate #stars #redwhiteblue

Do you go out to see fireworks or do you buy them to light off at home?  Last year we watched our neighbor's fireworks display.  Peanut was only 8 months old then and was asleep before the fireworks began.  I'm curious to see how she'll do this year.  :)

I love barbecuing and eating all American food, like corn on the cob and potato salad, on Independence Day.  But we stay at home and avoid the crowds. How are you and your family celebrating the 4th?

Time Saving Blind Cleaning Tip

I like tips and tricks that speed up my cleaning routine.  Some tasks are so tedious, I just want to get them done and move on.  While cleaning the blinds in front of my sliding door the other day, I found a trick that saved me a lot of time!

7 Fascinating Details of Abraham's Life

While reading the story of Abraham in Genesis the other day, I read a few details that I always seem to forget after awhile.  Abraham is a very significant historical man of God, and he lived an extremely fascinating life!  Here are 7 of my favorite details of Abraham's life.

Chemical Free Label Removal - Easiest Way EVER!

I love saving my glass jars.  They are perfect for so many crafts and storage purposes.  But getting the labels off of jars can be tricky.  I like to avoid using chemicals as often as I can and stumbled on this chemical free method that is so simple.

I tried using olive oil, which did help remove the label glue, but it was time consuming and no fun.

Father's Day Card - Free Printable

Father's Day is this coming Sunday!  I designed this Father's Day card for Peanut to give my husband.  I have it available below as a free printable if you'd like to use it for your kids, too!

Since our little Peanut is only 18 months old, I'm going to have her color on the inside with some crayons to add her personal touch.

DIY Doll Tube Sock Pants

After giving Peanut one of my old dolls, I realized she did not have her original pants and her bare back end needed covering.  My husband told me he had an old tube sock that I could use.  So here is a DIY tutorial of how I used an old tube sock to make Peanut's doll a pair of pants.

http://mimimommyandme.blogspot.com/2014/05/diy-doll-tube-sock-pants.html #tubesock #doll #pants

It worked out perfectly that the tube sock I used was red and white.  It coordinates with the dolls dress!  A repurposed hand me down.  I love second hand clothes!

Removing Spit Up and Vomit Smell

My little Peanut got sick the other day.  She only threw up once, but once is enough to need to know how to remove the smell of vomit.  I found this post via Pinterest and got to work.

We washed Peanuts blankets and clothes in the washing machine and after two washings, the smell was gone.  But her pacifier strap had obviously taken the brunt of the *ahem* sickness.

Her pacifier strap also had been spit up on numerous times so it had long since been fresh smelling.

Knowing I couldn't throw it in the wash I tried this solution.


Since I only needed to clean the pacifier strap, I made a small portion of the cleaner.
