Mod Podge Mania AND Friend Makin' Monday!!!

My awesome friend Xazmin is once again hosting Mod Podge Mania...too fun, go check out the projects, and link up if ya have one!!!
My projects are simple, but fun and will be included in the Halloween Giveaway I will be announcing tomorrow(be sure to come back!!!) I LOVE Halloween!!! The first is just a small wooden frame, that I did squares of fabric on, then distressed the edges and stained them for a spooky look!!!BOO!!:-) Oh, there will be something in the frame for the giveaway!

These are just the clear, flat marbles turned into magnets. I used the same fabric. Jibbity thinks I should NOT give them away.:-) She wants them on our fridge.

I can't wait to see every ones' projects!!!!

The adorable Amber is hosting FMM for a while, and I am so glad to be back playing! I have met some amazing bloggers out there through FMM, so...head on over to link up!!!

1. Do you cook every night? Mostly yes, it is definitely NOT fancy, sometimes even just Mac and Cheese, sometimes the kids even eat cereal, but with Hunter Dan working out of town during the week, I don't do big huge meals, usually just something easy.
2. What kind of laundry detergent do you use & why? I switch it up often, right now it is Tide with Downey. It has to smell really good to me.:-)
3. Do you do laundry every day or loads at a time? I do one or two loads every day, it makes things run more smoothly.
4. How often do you eat out per week? Not very often, with four kids it doesn't make it very cost efficient...sometimes though when it is grocery day, Jibbity, Ashie and I will stop on the way home and get something.
5. Where do you usually eat out? I love Taco Bell, and Carl's Jr. I also love Arby's, but Jibbity doesn't so we don't go too often.
6. What is your favorite retail store? I love Target!!! But end up at Wal-mart more often than not.
7. What's your favorite thing to drink? Milk...I go through it like crazy!!! But if you're talking about caffeine goodness...Dr. Pepper all the way(fountain, light ice)
8. Do you take vitamins? What kind? I'm suppose to be taking prenatal, but they don't stay down very well. We all try to take a Vitamin C everyday.
9. What percentage of the household chores to you do? 90%
10. Do your children do chores? {Or will they, did they, etc} ABSOLUTELY!!!! I depend on them, especially since being sick, and they are VERY good about helping out...Jibbity has a hard time sometimes, but the older two are awesome!! I am very lucky that way!
11. Do you go to church? Yes
12. Do you have a housework schedule? Kind of... every night before putting the kids to bed, I always do a quick inspection...floors swept, sinks, and counter tops wiped down, laundry put away, dishes done, and floor vacuumed...if these things are done and the house is mornings run a hundred times more smoothly. Then on Saturday, there is always a thorough cleaning of the house.
13. Do you keep a working budget? Yes
14. What do you do at night as a family? Always eat dinner together, but there is always football practice, baths, reading time...and all the crazy other things that go on before bed. On Monday nights we always have Family night, with a song, scripture, lesson, and treat. But every night we always have family prayer before bed.
15. How do you prepare yourself for a new week? I try to relax a bit on Sundays...because the rest of the week there isn't much relaxing!!:-)
16. What do your mornings look like? BUSY!!!! I get up usually between six, and six thirty...I wake the kids at seven, and the rest is pretty rushed, breakfast, hair fixed, kids off to school by eight. I love it though!
17. What time do you get up in the mornings? I already answered that too...6:00 or 6:30
18. What time do you go to bed at night? I don't sleep well with the hubby out of town, so it is usually around midnight or later, but when he's home I'm known to crash much earlier!
19. How do you manage all of the paperwork that floods into your household? We have a recycling bin out the kitchen doors...Kids schoolwork gets hung on the fridge for a week, then the ones that the kids and I decide to keep gets filed in their folders in the file cabinet, for their scrapbooks.
20. How do you keep your household organized? I make lists like crazy, I have a small dry-erase board on my fridge, and I keep counters de-cluttered so stuff isn't lost. I try not to let things get cluttered at all! It keeps me sane.:-)
This was fun, and I can't wait to get around to read every one's answers!!! Thanks Amber!!
Be sure to come back TOMORROW!!!!! Halloween Giveaway will be here!!! MWA...HA.HA!!!!!

The frame is super cute! Love it!

April said...

I love giveways, but a Halloween themed one sounds like extra fun! You can definitely count me in! I'm an early riser, too,...around 5:15 AM to be exact. My hubby travels a lot, as well...about 4 nights out of the week. If it were up to me, I'd have him home a lot more, but we're so thankful he, at least, has a job!

That Girl said...

Jenny-Jenny said...

I am really enjoying these lists. I usually do simple too on days when Rondell has to work. Kraft Cheese and Mac is my friend.

Vivienne @ the V Spot said...

My daughter and I LOVE to eat cold cereal for dinner...We will take all the different boxes out of the cupboard, mix a few different kinds and then proclaim it to be "gourmet". LOL!

Happy Monday to you!

Lyryn said...

Very cool!!! Can't wait for the giveaway!

Adie said...

Hopping on over from Ambers Blog for FMM!

I love your Halloween Frame. Very cute! Good Job.

I have noticed that people are way more organized than I thought. Dry erase boards are awesome!

shortmama said...

Girl with 4 kids you are doing an awesome job! I aspire to be as organized and together as you!

LOVE it! I so love Halloween. Yeah!

Unknown said...

The frames & magnets are adorable! I ran out of time to do FMM this week- bummer!


Heather said...

Love the frame and magnets, they look wonderful!

I'm the same way when The Hubby works all hours of the night. I never really feel settled.

Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful said...

Cute, cute frame! I've never used fabric with modge podge. do you have to use a special kind?


Amber Filkins said...

Great list!! I LOVE that you get it all together so well every night. I've been thinking of keeping some cleaning wipes in each bathroom to wipe things down every day or every other day. I also try to get the house picked up at night. You really rock it though.

I am obsessive list maker, etc as well. You rock.
