Today is the last day of our ‘Dress Mommy Challenge!’ Next week, we’re going to showcase reader submissions. If you’re up for the challenge, have your kiddos choose your clothes for a day or two and send them our way! You can email your photos to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
I am not a fan of Corned Beef and cabbage but my husband has to have corned beef around St. Patrick’s Day. So this is a way to make both of us happy. I was surprised that my kids actually were willing to give this a try. Minus the sauerkraut, swish cheese and rye bread – they had to have sourdough bread and provolone cheese!

A Little Background Information: About a month ago Bethany Wesley, the editor of inMagazine, forwarded a blog post to me that was written by Summer Bellessa of Babble, where she let her 3-year-old son, Rockwell, choose her outfits for five days. (Read that here.) The results are absolutely adorable!
After briefly chatting about how fun (scary) this challenge would be, we decided to just go for it and commit to FIVE days! Here’s our day 1!
A recent Saturday morning, my boyfriend and I went to Glazed and Amused. I knew before we had arrived what I had wanted to paint.
Every time we visit a paint-your-own ceramics place, my mom seems to always pick a plate so I decided to do the same. I opted for a small square plate because I wanted to feature the state of Minnesota.
If I could go back and do it again, I would do just one thing differently – I would paint the entire plate white first, rather than painting between the stripes white.
It was a pretty simple process: First I taped over the stripes and then painted the un-taped areas pink. Once I removed the tape, I painted between the stripes white and drew the state of Minnesota on the plate with pencil. Next I painted the state blue and added the words “MN NICE” on the bottom left side.
It was a fun morning activity! A week or so later, we went back to get our creations! I posted the pictures below for you to see the process and the final result. Enjoy!
