Cinnamon Churro Chex Mix

Lately I have been into 3 different kinds of food.
Different kinds of green Salads.
Healthy fruit/veggie Smoothies.
Chex Mix.
Yes call me weird....hahaha
Kind of a weird mix of foods/drinks.
So i have been trying out different chex mix recipes and stumbled across this sweet one that is 
Cinnamon Churro Chex Mix.

Here's How I Made It:
9 cups Chex Cereal 
1 cup cinnamon Chips
1/2 cup Butter ( To much butter for me so put in less!)
1/2 cup Powdered sugar
1/4 cup Granulated Sugar ( This was also to much sugar for me so i only put in a little of it.)
1 1/2tsp. Cinnamon

 Oh yes and a helper!

First i measured out my cereal in a large bowl...i didn't know it but 9 cups it basically one whole box of Chex cereal.
Next - i melted the cinnamon chips and butter, until smooth.
Then i poured it over the chex and mixed until it was evenly coated.
(as you can tell i used the same bowl to melt and mix dry ingredients.....lazy me)

Last I mixed the powdered sugar, granulated sugar and cinnamon together and mixed it into the chex mixture.

Then i spread it on parchment paper until it was cooled.

And after that it was a tasty snack!

Summer Fun List

I've been wanting to make this summer fun list since probably last summer.
So this year i decided to make one.
You can use it for any season and just change the colors of the rectangles
(which i plan on doing)
Maybe it's just me but i seem to get more done when i have a list to check off!
Plus i got Hailey excited about all the fun things we're going to start doing!
So here's how i made my 
'Summer Fun List'
(It's very similar to the paint chip calendar i made HERE)

To make it i used: 
some double sided tape 
paint chips
poster board

I also used a long frame that i had in the closet (collecting dust)

First i cut out the poster board to fit the frame.
Then i cut the words off the ends of the paint chips and taped them to the poster board.

I thought it still looked a little plain so i dressed it up a bit with the leftover paint chips.
I also didn't measure anything or try to get it straight as you can tell.

Then I put it in the frame.
The glass acts a  dry erase surface so i used a dry erase marker to write down some fun summer activities.
I have high hopes we'll do more than what's on the list.....but it's a good start!
I'm loving how it turned out!

What do you have planned for the summer?
