Simple Dinners: Honey Chipotle BBQ Chicken Skewers

I love it when the warmer weather takes over and I can cook outside while the kids play. It makes for such fun and carefree nights with my family. I love to use my barbecue and I try to find any excuse for it, especially since it means a lot less cleanup, and I get to enjoy the weather while I cook instead of being stuck in my kitchen.

When summer hits I try to stock up on easy and delicious BBQ recipes. Because you can get in a rut when it comes to outdoor cooking. But this year I won’t let you. I will try to post a summer outdoor recipe every month. This month you have got to check out these sweet and delicious skewers.

Thank you to Cooking Classy for such a fun and delicious recipe. It can be made quickly and with very little prep. Which is great for the summer since I am usually very busy despite it being a time to lay back and relax. Head on over to  Cooking Classy to gt the full recipe and some great ideas for the rest of your week, I promise you won’t be disappointed. I will just be over here enjoying my BBQ chicken and corn.

 

Mother’s Day DIY Gifts

Mother’s Day is this weekend and we all love our Moms so why not make them a little something special to remind them how much we love them. So Moms look away, Dads, kids, grandparents, and spouses pay attention!

Mom Secret Stash: All Moms have a favorite snack, and by favorite we mean they do not like to share it with ANYONE. For me its chocolate. After a long day of “mommying” it up I want to hide with a small sweet morsel and unwind. However, it can be hard to keep those sweets out of my little ones hands. So this year why not make Mom a little secret stash of all of her favorites. It is a sweet idea with not a lot or hard work. Trust me, Mom will appreciate it.

365 Reasons We Love Mom: This fun little idea is actually available at Big DIY Ideas. It is so simple, it is not expensive, does not require a great crafting ability, and all of the kids can help, even the littlest ones. It is a gift that Mom will cherish forever. Moms love those sappy mother’s day gifts, and what is sappier than a jar full of all the reasons why we love her?

DIY Succulent Rock Garden: I LOVE succulents. I Love plants. But, I have a black thumb. My kids know this, and have started to buy me only succulents, but I have even on occasion killed the succulents. This adorable little succulent would survive even at my house! It is made form rocks. Your kids can design and paint their very own succulents and design you the prettiest flower pot ever. Best part? It never needs to be watered!

Spudz: New Apparel at The Boy’s Store

Spudz is one of our new brands here at The Boy’s Store. Spudz Kids is a brand that cares about kids, parents, and our environment. The cotton used to create these fun and resilient designs contain 100% American Cotton. This saves resources, and promotes jobs.  All of their fabrics are pre-washed to prevent shrinking. This spares the stress of clothing that doesn’t fit, or looks terrible after being washed at home. All of the screen prints are tested not to crack. This means after multiple washes — and if you have kids you know what we mean by multiple washes — the images will not show wear. Spudz is definitely a brand worth checking out.

Boys Shark Shirt By Spudz: This fun light grey shirt features a screen print of the great white shark. It also features some important and fun facts about the shark. Now your kids can learn about the most frightening shark while sporting their brand new shirt.

Boys Schooner Shirt by Spudz: this fun navy blue shirt features a classic schooner on the front. It also features facts about the large sails, the boat itself, and how it was sailed. If you have a mini boat enthusiast in your family this shirt will be sure to impress.
