My Worst Baking Fail to Date- #Pinterestfail #Nailedit

We all do it. Start scrolling through Pinterest until something catches our eye we deem doable. Then we gather all of the supplies to create whatever it is we are doing. And with high hopes, we anticipate the end result to look exactly like the photo. This post is from a couple of years ago […]

Our 2016 Christmas Cards + Minted Giveaway

We are officially in the midst of the holidays and gosh, my heart is just so full this year. I really love  everything about this season and the thing that jumpstarts it for us is creating and sending our Christmas cards. And for the last two years, we have created ours with Minted, a company […]

Cyber Monday (And Beyond) Deals

It is officially the biggest online shopping day of the year! Time to save on those Christmas gifts and start chipping away at that list. Below I have compiled a list of stores offering some killer Cyber Monday deals (some that even go longer) for your shopping convenience. Let me know if I should add […]

Simply Perfect Hand-Stamped Jewelry by Lilly and Grey + Discount Code

My everyday attire tends to be on the casual side since while running around with my little people I like what I am wearing to be equally functional, comfortable and stylish. So, on an average day I don’t usually wear a ton of jewelry and what I do wear tends to be pretty simple. When […]

The Do’s and Don’ts of Babysitting

Finding a good babysitter these days is not as easy as you would think.  Most of these things seem like common knowledge, but after talking with some friends about their babysitting experiences, along with our own, we have come to the conclusion that no,  some things need a little more explanation. Below is a compilation […]

I Still Carry Them

  I still carry all three of our kiddos. Gwyn is nearly 6.5, Cal is 4.5, and Franklin is almost 11 months. And all three of them still ask (through words or grunting) to be picked up and held. And I oblige. At the end of the school year last year Gwyn was still running […]

Get in Front of That Camera, Mama! (in this great mini session )

The weather is cooling off, the leaves are starting to turn and the pumpkin spice lattes are out in abundance, and to me these are the first signs that we are now moving into the holidays. And with the holidays come our annual family photos, some of which we always use for our Christmas card. […]

Brought to Tears By My Singing… (you could say…)

I’ve never done a Throwback Thursday, but recently came across a video I took a few years ago and couldn’t stop giggling. So, I’m throwin’ it back to a few years ago! Do you remember the original video of the baby brought to tears by her mother’s beautiful singing? It truly is a sight to […]

Diaper Changing Made Simpler Thanks to Snoofybee

Now that Franklin is getting a little older, things are getting easier. He is able to entertain himself by playing with toys, he enjoys being mobile and he is feeding himself as well. We’ve gotten things (for the most part) figured out with this little babe, except for when it comes to changing his diaper. […]

Shopping Local with Charli Iris (discount code!) for Gwyn’s First Day of First Grade

Our Sweet Gwyn started the first grade this week, and boy did I have mixed feelings about this day! In our district, Kindergarten is still half-day, so this year marks our first of being in school full-day. While I am pumped for our little girl to be experiencing new and exciting things, it also makes […]
