A Better Way to Paint

My kids love to create. They are always drawing, coloring, building … and attempting to drag out any and every pot of paint we have in the house. Now it’s not to say that I’m not okay with them painting, it’s just that I like to supervise the activity. Painting is so messy. Their clothes get dirty, the table turns into a mess, and whatever else they touch with paint on their hands ends up ruined by the time I {Read More}

You Bet I Wear my prAna Pants 7 Days a Week #7DayStretch

Okay — I will be the first to admit it. I love jeans. Pants of any kind really. I have never been much of a skirt or dress kind of girl (well, unless you could my preschool years, but that was a long, long time ago…). And not just any pants will do — they have to be super comfortable and look like a tried, at least a little. I can admit it, I used to live in yoga pants. {Read More}

BELLAMI 6 in 1 Complete Curler Set Review

I am the first to admit that I can be a bit lazy when it comes to my hair. I wear it very long, so it tends to find itself pulled back into a ponytail much more often than I really like. Lately, I have been trying to switch it up a bit and actually wear a style. My cousin really got me into curling my hair. I always loved how my hair looked pin straight, and until about 6 {Read More}

Birthday Fun with Peppa Pig!

{I was provided with a complimentary product to review. All opinions are my own and 100% honest} One show that both of my kids have always loved is Peppa Pig. Her cute British accent and adorable way that she talks seems to suck my kids right in. When they saw that we had the brand new Peppa Pig “My Birthday Party” DVD, they could not wait to tear it open and watch it right away. If your kids have never {Read More}

Parenting Made a Bit Easier with Bundoo

{Disclosure: I received site credit for Bundoo in exchange for a post about the program. All thoughts and opinions are my own.} One of the most stressful things about parenting is the not knowing. With V, I was constantly worried that I was making the wrong decision, or that I should have gone into the doctors with her instead of just “waiting it out”. I called our pediatricians office a lot that first year, and spent countless hours searching online {Read More}

Spring Fashions at Oshkosh

{I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for OshKosh B’gosh. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating.}  While we are still knee deep in snow, I can’t help but dream about spring fashions. Especially for the kids. E is already out growing his winter pants (he is getting way too tall) and V is complaining about all the layers. I don’t blame her — it has {Read More}

The Cutest Baby Wipes Case

A few months ago, I came across the most adorable baby wipes cases I have ever seen. When my kids were little, I had so many tubs of wipes around the house, and I always disliked the look of them. Glaringly bright blue and sometimes white plastic bins that sat in my daughters beautifully decorated nursery. It drove me nuts. Her entire room was done in vintage flowers and soft pinks and purples … everything except for the wipes case. I {Read More}

Best Booster Seat EVER

E is at that stage where he is too big to be using the chair top high chair seat that we had, but not big enough yet to sit without some kind of booster seat. It has been a very frustrating thing for him — he wanted to be out of the “baby” seat, but still wanted to reach everything on the table. When the opportunity arose to check out Luv Chicken I was super excited. What is Luv Chicken? {Read More}

Ember (Jinn Trilogy) Book Review

Ember (Jinn Trilogy Book One) by Liz Schulte Holden told Olivia it was only a matter of time before Hell came for them. After all, one doesn’t just walk away from the life he lived unscathed, but the longer Hell waited, the more Olivia let down her guard. She believed maybe happily ever after was possible—he knew it wasn’t. But when Baker shows up beaten and bloody on their doorstep with a message, all hope evaporates. The jinn make Holden {Read More}

The Perfect Play Makeup

V loves to get dressed up, and is rarely dressed in anything as “boring” as sweats and a tee shirt (I, on the other hand, live for the days I can stay in sweats!). She loves to add as many accessories as she can, and it is the icing on the cake if I will let her wear makeup. I have nothing against her wearing makeup — at her age, I had a caboodle full of everything from purple lipstick {Read More}
