Earth Day Party: Eco-Friendly and Fun!

Earth Day Party: Eco-Friendly and Fun!

For Earth Day this year, I wanted to do something special. After all, the purpose of Earth Day – caring for our planet – most definitely deserves to be recognized. So we hosted a little Earth Day party in our backyard for our children and nieces and nephew. Since it was Earth Day, I made… Continue Reading

Winnie {Five Months Old}

Winnie {Five Months Old}

Once again, I’m really late with Winnie’s update. She’ll be six months old in less than two weeks. But, hey, at least I’m writing about her being five months old while she’s still five months old. My tardiness this month is Owen’s fault. He brought some horrible Ebola-like virus into our household, which basically ruined… Continue Reading

Dinner With Children: Cruel and Unusual Punishment

Dinner With Children: Cruel and Unusual Punishment

Let’s talk about my least favorite part of parenting: DINNERTIME If your household is like mine, the third meal of the day (following 32 snacks) is an absolute shit show. It doesn’t matter how far in advance I prep dinner. Somehow, just scooping food from a crockpot onto a plate becomes a harrowing ordeal with… Continue Reading

Rainbow Treat Bags {A Magically Colorful Favor}

Rainbow Treat Bags {A Magically Colorful Favor}

I’m loving all things rainbow-themed lately (it’s the result of Lisa Frank nostalgia brought on by the current magical unicorn trends  and, more obviously, having a rainbow baby).  So, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day this month, I’m posting a series of rainbow DIYs. And I’m starting the series with super easy rainbow treat bags! They’re… Continue Reading

Bacon Bean Soup with Tomatoes

Bacon Bean Soup with Tomatoes

Spring is coming (and for some of us it feels like it’s been here for months already – hello, warm winter!), so you might not be thinking about soup for dinner. But this bacon bean soup is really too good not to share, no matter the seasons. It’s thick, smokey, comforting and easy to make.… Continue Reading

Winnie {Four Months Old}

Winnie {Four Months Old}

Poor third child. Once again, I’m late posting her monthly update. However, it’s not all my fault. If Winnie slept a little better (or at all), I think I’d be right on time with her blog postings. I feel like I say this constantly and I know I sound like a broken record, yet I… Continue Reading

Love Bug Valentines {Bugs and Kisses!}

Love Bug Valentines {Bugs and Kisses!}

Since the kids have been bugging me recently (i.e. the past four years), I was inspired to make love bug valentines this year. So I created valentine cards with a few different “buggy” messages that I paired with adorable wind-up flipping bug toys. And because I’m a super nice person, I made the love bug… Continue Reading
