It’s the Little Things #131

My kids are officially done with school and we are in summer mode so it is no surprise to me what has caught my eye this week.  I am sharing a delicious roundup of s’mores combinations from Chris Loves Julia, some road trip tips and tricks from Kelle Hampton, a delicious chocolate sheet cake from Preppy Kitchen, the new Responsible Kid Kit promo price ends tomorrow, and a free printable round up of all the Simple Shortcuts from the last six weeks.

Okay, so these s’mores combinations from Chris Loves Julia are absolutely enticing. Do yourself a favor and read through the comments for even more delicious ideas.

If you are planning a road trip this summer, you need to check all the wisdom in this post from Kelle Hampton. She shares all her knowledge, activities and links for car activities after years of family road trips.

I made this chocolate sheet cake from Preppy Kitchen over the weekend and was reminded just how much I love a good sheet cake. Not only is it easier than a layer cake, but the ratio of frosting to cake was spot on – not too sweet and perfectly satisfying.

It isn’t a secret that I love some structure and routine to my day. The Simple Shortcuts series is officially over but you can grab the 5 page free printable that rounds up all those tips in one place for you. Grab the free printable here with all the tips and see all the posts here.

The brand-new 21 page Responsible Kid Kit is in the shop and ready to help you build a little responsibility in your home (we’re working on it this summer!). It’s intro-priced at $10 through tomorrow, June 12th.

Did you see the Summer Quarterly?  It’s one of my favorite things on the site – a quiet approach to homekeeping and an invitation to slow down. I share my top secret Chicken Salad recipe and other tips for a refreshing summer. Check it out here.
