Chalkboard Obsession!

So if you have been to our house you have probably noticed that I have a thing for chalkboards. I think they are cute and functional and they help me actually do the things that are on them. For example I cook off a menu board. On the rare weeks I don't fill it out I feel lost all week for what I should cook.
I got this chalkboard for Christmas and let me tell you we don't miss FHE! Caleb loves it too and loves to help pick who gets to do what and he knows that he has an assignment and asks about it all week.
We do a Friday night movie each week and I kept forgetting to order a Netflix that was special for it so we ended up having to go to the rental store or red box. So I thought I'll make myself a chalkboard. Here it is! I love it and now I know I will remember to get our movies on time!

I go the slightly less aesthetically pleasing route and write it in dry erase markers across my bathroom mirror. When I see "RENT" written across my reflected face, I remember to write the check.

However, I think your idea is cute and awesome! The success of something, I think, is 50% based on the anticipation of it and your Friday Night Movie board is great! What a great thing to make your kids look forward to family time!

They are yummy although I take no credit since its my sister-in-laws recipe. I just put the recipe up on the "good eats and sweets" blog that you can link to on the right side of our blog. Hope you like them!
