I’m so excited to be able to share a good friend’s party with you. Nicole is no stranger to creativity – she’s such a crafty mama!

Ezra’s Vintage Outdoors Nursery

Becca has been a friend of mine for years, and she’s always been known for her great style. She and her husband bought a cute little home and have been doing an amazing job at fixing it up. When they started planning out their nursery for their second son, Ezra, I told her that she [...]

Thirty-One Vary You Backpack Purse Review and Giveaway!

Thirty-One Vary You Backpack Purse Review and Giveaway!

Having two young children means you have the luggage to go along with them. You absolutely cannot leave the house without some kind of bag full of diapers, extra clothes, snacks, etc. When we’re going on a short trip though, it’s kind of a pain to tote around a big bulky diaper bag. That is [...]

Foam Crafts With Kids

Foam Crafts With Kids

My daughter loves crafts. I was searching through the craft kits at WalMart, looking for something age-appropriate for her. Unfortunately, all the kits seemed a little too advanced for my almost-three-year-old. She was very persistent about wanting to “make something,” though. I found a big pack of foam sheets in primary colors and I thought [...]

Emma’s DIY Dorothy Costume

Emma’s DIY Dorothy Costume

Last year was my daughter’s second Halloween. Being only a year and a half old, she really couldn’t express what she ‘wanted’ to be, so I decided to look for ideas myself. I knew it’d probably be the the last year before she’d be able to make the decision herself, so I wanted to find [...]

Crayola Color Wonder Paints and Markers Review

My two-year-old daughter is a little artist. She loves to color, draw and paint any chance she gets. The only problem is that I worry about the mess.

Enrolling Your Child In Dance Class

Enrolling Your Child In Dance Class

I grew up dancing. It has always been my favorite thing to do and although there were a few times I had thought about quitting early on, my mom encouraged me to stick through it, and I’m glad I did. I started out around second grade with tap dancing and gymnastics. Throughout the years, I [...]

Making Mama Feel Special (Tips For Dads & Partners)

Okay dads and partners, this one’s for you! There’s so much pressure on mamas in their day-to-day lives. Maybe the pressure isn’t put directly on them by you, but they feel that there’s more they need to do because of being a mama. Sometimes, they just need a break, a thank you, or a special [...]

Spinach Lasagna Rolls

Spinach Lasagna Rolls

I was on Pinterest (really, what would we do without it?!) looking for new recipes for my picky family to eat for dinner. I saw a friend had pinned a recipe for spinach lasagna roll ups. I was intrigued, because I’m always looking for ways to incorporate healthy choices, without “seeming” healthy. Sometimes, you just [...]

Mother’s Day Letters: Sam’s Mama

Mother’s Day Letters: Sam’s Mama

Dear Mama, Words can’t express the feelings I have about our relationship. I’ve always looked at you as a friend. You’re always there for me, supporting me and comforting me in times of need. You’re a shoulder to cry on, and a friend to laugh and joke with. You’ve taught me the importance of being [...]
