The Family Halloween Costume Tradition Continues…

Since we have become a family of four we have done family Halloween costumes. It all started with Gwyn’s obsession with Goldilocks and the three bears, and when I came across her costume, that one was a given. Not knowing what Cal should be, I came across this matching little bear costume and thus, the […]

The Creepy Hair Enabler

I admit it. I am embarrassed to admit it. But, I admit it. I shared a LONG time ago about how Cal is a Creepy Hair Hoarder.    And how I thought it was cute and endearing, and only slightly creepy. Well…. he still does it.  But that’s not what I am admitting, here. Instead […]

A few more home decor pieces I totally scored on.

Now that we are settling into our new home and are putting things where they belong, it is clear where a few things are missing. Since we have waited to buy furniture and home decor until we were in a more permanent home, we have a blank slate to work with. Which is awesome! But, […]

Organizing the Toys

I love an organized space and become very inspired when I come across such spaces in the homes of my friends.  Now that we are in the home that we will remain in for a long time I am looking for creative and practical ways to organize our home. I am thoroughly impressed by the […]

A Little Savior when in Need- The Vtech InnoTab 3 Plus Review and Giveaway

I was recently tagged in a post on Facebook showing a video of two moms trying to interact and make friends. And it was all too funny and real. (See below.) It made me start to think about how hard it really is to make mom friends. Or friends, period. When I moved from Reno […]

Chronicles of The Crazy Kindergarten Campout

Last week I shared how we were about to experience The Kindergarten Campout. Well, it happened. And I will start out by saying that we got in. Cue huge sigh of relief. But it didn’t go down how I expected. People were not supposed to line up until all school activities had ended for the […]

The Guncles Got Married

Recently, The Guncles got married. And it was fabulous. From the plum and charcoal to the Spanish flair, this wedding was carefully thought out leaving guests wondering what is next and wanting more.     Cal was one of the ring bearers and these pictures depict what happened pretty well. And he’s gone!   And […]

Fall is here! And so we must eat Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

It’s officially Fall! Which means it is time to start making those delicious pumpkin goods, one of my favorites being these Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. They’re easy to make and are sure to please just about any palette.   I made these delicious little morsels last Fall and cannot wait to get settled into our house […]
