PJ Media Parenting's Best of the Web—3/24

Spring has arrived! At least the date on the calendar. We had a field trip today and I had to dig the gloves, hats, and scarves out of the closet!  Here’s hoping this weekend’s warm front actually pulls through and comes to town.


I’m always looking for ways to organize.  We have a big move coming up and this was helpful to start organizing and thinking about ways to get my house in order and then re-order when we move in.

“I know the basic adage of organizing.  A place for everything and everything in its place.  The hardest part of that whole idea is figuring out what all the places look like.

I get it.

I understand.  I really, really do.

That’s where baskets come in.

First of all, baskets are cute and pretty and have sides that hold things.

Here are some ideas that I use baskets for.  I use a basket for mail.  I use a basket for the kid’s papers.  I use a basket for random coupons and business cards and tiny pieces of who-knows-what that collect on the counters.  I use a basket for things I need to do.  I use a basket for items I want to donate.  I use a basket for dog supplies.  I use a basket for unfinished projects.”

Thistlewood Farms is too much fun!  Go grab some ideas.


 How much fun is this!  And what an excuse to spend a little quality time with your favorite bunny.

Make a couple and surprise someone with a bunny for Easter!

Skip to my Lou is filled with recipes and crafts sure to please.


Isn’t this just beautiful?  Would you believe it has just five ingredients, and most of them are store-made?  I know!  Bring this to your Easter gathering and enjoy all the gasps of delight, from adults and kids alike.

Paper & Stitch is beautiful and has wonderful ideas to inspire.


I’m mostly excited to make this recipe because the story that accompanies the recipe was so funny!

Dip in.  Dive in.  Pour a cold beer. Call a few friends… this is for sharing (mostly to save yourself from a queso stomach ache).”

Head over to Joy the Baker for more ideas.
