Hookin Up with HoH #117

Sorry the post is getting up so late tonight. My son decided to have a teary heartfelt bedtime confessional about a friend bullying him at school. Poor kid. I will always be there for my kids, so unfortch the party goes up late tonight. Crisis adverted though. I talked him off the ledge and he’s feeling good about himself again. Why is life so hard at 10?

I just adore this faucet handle coat rack from The Sweet Survival. It is the cutest thing ever.

Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mommade this adorbs tunic top for her little gal. My daughter saw this and wants one so bad now.

Leave it to Stay at Home-ista to create fab-u-LESS art for her amazing house. Her sutff is always so classy.

The House on Harrison turned a desk into a chalkboard. How fun, especially to write birthday messages on.

I love this super-simple tutu tutorial for your doll from A Creative Princess. So easy to make. Definitely adding this to my to-do list.

These distressed picture frames from Bullfrogs and Bulldogs are ubber amazing. I just love them.

Dying over this ombre giltter pumpkin tutorial from Serendipity Refined. And the best part? ALL the glitter came in a combo pack for a buck at the dollar store.

Want your little girl’s dress to poof out? Follow this well written petticoat tutorial from Sew Fantastic and get poofy today.

The Crafted Sparrow crafted herself a scary skill halloween pillow. So fun.

Polish the Stars painted THE MOST AMAZEBALLZ coffee table on planet earth. Can an enormous nintendo controller coffee table be any cooler? I think not.

Perfectly Imperfect is perfectly brilliant. She took a Target dollar spot clutch and added a custom monogram with a sharpie. So clever.

Lizy B is a baking goddess. She’s at it again with these mouth-watering pizza cookies. And they look so real. Plus, I have a sweet tooth for sugar cookies, so I’m drooling right now.

  34. Allison-

    I am so sorry about the bullying! I am definitely feeling your pain. My daughter is 9 and we have been getting that from a boy at school this year. I am blessed that our school is taking it so seriously and concerned about her. But dealing with it all is exhausting! I’m so glad your son is willing to talk to you about it though.

  6. […] This Skinny Potato Soup does not taste skinny at all. It is creamy and delicious, just like you want potato soup to taste. You can always load it up with low-fat cheese, bacon and onion to make it a loaded potato soup but I find that I enjoy it without the extras. Skinny Potato Soup1 bag Ore-Ida frozen hash brown potatoes, cubed4 cans or 8 cups of fat-free chicken brothPour broth in to a large pot. Add potatoes and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.Add:1 package envelope Pioneer fat-free country white gravy mix (this is what makes it creamy without adding all the heavy cream that is normally in potato soup)1/2 cup waterIn a small bowl, blend water and gravy mix. Add gravy mixture to potatoes. Simmer an additional 20 minutes.Serving size is 1 1/2 cups and equals 2 points.This soup is a generous serving and very filling and delicious. I have served this to many people and everyone is astounded that it is fat-free. Enjoy!Do you have a favorite low-cal, low-fat recipe? If so, I would love for you to leave me your link in the comments section! sharing:http://www.the36thavenue.com/2012/09/halloween-free-witch-printable-decor.htmlhttp://www.impartinggrace.com/2012/09/grace-at-home-no-27.htmlhttp://www.houseofhepworths.com/2012/09/19/hookin-up-with-hoh-117/http://delightfulorder.blogspot.com/2012/09/delightfully-inspiring-thursday-party_19.htmlhttp://www.52mantels.com/2012/09/thursdays-are-your-days-creative.htmlhttp://thebrambleberrycottage.blogspot.com/2012/09/time-travel-thursday-115-talented-time.htmlhttp://www.katiesnestingspot.com/2012/09/a-crafty-soiree-108-with-sur-la-table.htmlhttp://www.thecraftyblogstalker.com/2012/09/blog-stalking-thursday-59.htmlhttp://www.happyhourprojects.com/2012/09/happy-hour-friday-0921.htmlhttp://www.littlebeckyhomecky.com/2012/09/fantabulous-friday-31/http://www.craftionary.net/2012/09/friday-fun-party-and-features-209.htmlhttp://www.thirtyhandmadedays.com/2012/09/linky_party_106/http://www.blessedwithgrace.net/2012/09/tempt-my-tummy-with-oatmeal-scotchies/ […]
