Classroom Friendly Supplies Giveaway


I am so excited to announce that the day has arrived!!  For the next week we will be running a giveaway for the most marvelous pencil sharpener you will find.  Around the third week of June I was able to complete a review on this gem.  If you are new to The Domestic Four and […]

Homemade Lotion Using Coconut Oil

I know… Coconut Oil… Enough is enough with this magical substance that can heal the sick, feed the hungry, and solve the vast majority of the worlds problems!  Ok, so it might not claim to do all of that, but lets face it, the stuff is EVERYWHERE and people LOVE it, and me, a lover of trying anything new, […]

Back to School Boot Camp

I know, I know.  It’s technically still July and here I am going all Walmart with the back to school stuff already.  The thing is, here in Central PA, the kids start back August 21st! Yes, we’re a mere 3 weeks from the first day of school and this home daycare provider is ready to send […]

Dining Room Chair Update


A few weeks ago I shared the above photo on our Instagram. (Are you following us on Instagram? You totally should! Search for us – thedomesticfour) When my husband and I got married back in 2010 I was hesitant to buy furniture for our home that was too “girly.” I’m a shabby chic lover and […]

Living Room Worthy Toy Storage


With children comes the joy of toys.  And I’ve found that if it is the first grandchild,  it’s lots of toys.  If I could have a wish, I would wish that with each additional child, one’s house would grow…literally.  As in, the square footage would increase.  You know, a congrats on expanding the family and […]

A Hand-Me-Down Swing Re-do

Swing Renovation |

Hand-Me-Downs are always fun, aren’t they? I mean, who can argue with free stuff? I’m by no means a hoarder, I’m quite good at saying ‘no’ actually.  But sometimes, when it’s the right thing or if it belonged to someone special, I just can’t refuse it.  Even when I’m looking at it and seeing a TON […]

Hi all! I haven’t posted in a while, and figured I should get on here with a post before you all think I fell off the face of the planet.  It’s been a very rough year for this family, and things are finally starting to turn around.  My husband was laid off for 7 months […]

Breakfast Crisp


This one will be short, and sweet! It’s 11:30 here in Wyoming, I am awaiting the last load of laundry to finish drying, and I’m having flashbacks to college courses where I procrastinated way too long and had to pull an all-nighter to write a paper. *shudders violently* School is just around the corner – […]

Sensory Play with Edible Paint


Almost 13 months ago Husband and I became first time parents to an incredibly active little man.  I’m talking the moment his eyes open in the morning he is ready for the day.  The apple didn’t fall far from the tree.  It is nonstop…until nap time.  He recharges during nap time and is ready to […]
