I am so excited for this year’s Easter egg hunt! My son, who is 20 months old, is at the age where is he loves opening and closing doors, containers with lids, toilet seats, cabinets, bottles with caps, etc. Just about anything with a hinge or a lid is like the coolest thing in the world to him. If only his standards [Read more…]
Spring is here! The birds are chirping, snow is melting, and the days are feeling longer. This is a true sign that Easter is just around the corner. If you’ve got kids, then you’re probably already shopping for Easter basket stuffers, planning the great Easter egg hunt, and stashing away your pennies for the post-Easter dental visit.
These Easter Egg Bunnies are a great spring project that can be [Read more…]
After a long and treacherous winter (just kidding), Spring is finally here and that means it’s time to start planting flowers and veggies, cleaning the house, and decorating for the new season. Which means my weekends are filled with [Read more…]
Spring is here and Easter is just around the corner. That means it’s not only time to break out the Claritin, but also get out your plastic eggs and ceramic bunnies. Pastel is in full bloom and I love it!
I always look forward to decorating my house for every holiday, but Easter is one of my favorite. I love the soft undertones that Easter colors bring, the look of shabby-chic fabric bunnies, and warmth of Spring in the air. Decorating my large dining room table is my most favorite. It’s one of the focal points when you walk into my home and though it doesn’t get much use on a daily basis, I know it gets its much-needed attention during the holidays. So, it’s gotta be all dressed to impress! If you’re looking for a Pottery Barn “esk” table centerpiece, but not looking to spend the Pottery Barn bucks, [Read more…]
Doing crafts is always a fun way to connect with children. Crafting, building, drawing and painting brings out their creative side while they learn to explore and challenge their inner artist. Drawing a circle or a cloud helps develop their fine motor skills. Something as simple as waiting for paint to dry teaches them [Read more…]
Finding the perfect diaper bag can be tricky. Knowing what to put in the diaper bag is even trickier, especially for a new mom. When I started my search I knew that I wanted a bag that looked a little more modern woman and less traditional mom. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that [Read more…]
This Broccoli & Cheese Puffs recipe is one of my quickest, go-to bite-sized snacks that my toddler loves. They don’t take a lot of effort or forethought. They’re so tasty, I’ve been known to sneak a few myself. [Read more…]

One of the main ingredients, pumpkin, is loaded with fiber and beta-carotene which not only helps aid digestion but can also ease tummy troubles for your furry friend. Enjoy! [Read more…]
My breastfeeding journey (like many first-time moms) began long before my little J was born.
It began with a question we all ask ourselves (and get asked by many). Breastfeed or bottle-feed? For me, I always knew I wanted to breastfeed. While I know that there are plenty of mothers who want nothing to do with it, I think breastfeeding is a challenge most moms are up for. Either way, it is a choice we are blessed to have.
What I didn’t know was what an emotional roller coaster I was in for. [Read more…]
Strawberries are my favorite fruit. In fact, they’re one of my favorite foods. I love them! Who wouldn’t—they’re beautiful, practical, and versatile.
Strawberries make the perfect snack: you wash their red sweetness, put them in a container, and they’re ready to go anywhere. You can also dip them in just about anything for extra flavor. This little fruit can be made into smoothies, candies, cakes, pies, and salsas. One of my favorite treats to make from this fruit is my delicious Strawberry Muffins with Strawberry-Lemon Glaze.
