Okay, so Fall is finally here and for me that means more than pumpkin spice everything. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s so close to my birthday or just because it’s so much fun. This year, my kids have chosen some pretty random costumes, but I’m totally okay with it. We’re all going to be dolls and you’re going to have to stalk my Instagram account to see us on the big night because I don’t want to ruin the surprise.
It’s a little early for me to start posting Halloween related content, but I couldn’t help myself. So, I thought these colorful no-so-Halloween-ish Monster Ice Cream Cupcakes would be a great way to ease us into what will begin the start of our holi”daze”. Once we hit Halloween, the remainder of the year just flies on by.Continue Reading

Now that we are back in our school routine, I am finding it a bit difficult getting my little one to eat at home after school. I’m not sure if he is either still full from lunch or maybe tired, but I am always on top of my kids’ nutrition and the things they are eating. Over summer, he had a pretty good appetite and ate virtually anything we put in front of him. However, changes, such as school, routine and of course age can alter a child’s eating habits.Continue Reading
You know that line…something about how time flies? Well, I just realized that it’s been over a year since I started my blog. Last summer, with the help of a very dear friend, I made the decision to begin my blogging journey. While many may think it’s easy to do, I beg to differ. There’s so much that goes in to all we do and it doesn’t just happen overnight. It took me a lot of work, blood, sweat and tears (real tears)…literally…to get where I am today.
I’ve struggled with many things from gaining a strong following to complete and utter failure with great ideas that I just couldn’t execute on. I went from photographing newborns and children to shooting mainly food. My friends who are renowned photographers have complimented my work and have repeatedly told me that they think I found my niche. It took a few years in the photography realm of things, but I finally found my passion and it was all for the love of the journey. I am so happy where I am today. I am successful, I am happy and that’s all that matters!Continue Reading
Our summer has been quite relaxing so far. Lot’s of time has been spent on the couch and in the pool with friends. Did I mention the BBQ’s? Oh yes!!! With summer comes BBQ’s at our place. Usually every weekend and often times in the middle of the week. We love having company and of course, great food. From Steaks to Kabobs, we do it all and we do it well. So today, I’ll be sharing my 5 tips for a successful BBQ and a delicious recipe using the Suddenly Salad varieties.Continue Reading
Summer Vacation is less than 20 school days away for us! Can I just say how ready we are? It’s been a long school year and we are just so ready for some rest and relaxation. During the summer, our days are mostly spent sleeping in and lounging by the pool. Often times, we wake up and it’s that odd time between breakfast and lunch where you don’t really know if you should make one or the other. Usually, by the time I roll out of bed and wash my face, the kids are already in their suits begging me to go out back. For moments like these, I always turn to these Very Berry Breakfast Yogurt Popsicles.Continue Reading

Ever since I can remember, Honey Maid Graham Cracker Houses have been a long time tradition for my family. I have so many fond memories of time well-spent with my grandparents and cousins. So when Bunbun was finally old enough to start making her own, I continued the tradition and my son is just about old enough to help now too!
Whether it’s building a princess castle like I’ll be sharing with you today, or a Dragon’s lair, Honey Maid graham cracker houses are a fun activity to do year-round and aren’t just for the Holidays. There are so many different things you can build and the possibilities are endless. You just have to use your imagination. Ask your little ones what they’d like to build. You’ll be surprised at their responses, but let them try!
Building is great for children. It allows them to explore with their creativity, increases motor skills, hand-eye coordination, social skills and even language skills. Building graham cracker houses is not only stimulating, but rewarding as well once they see the final result of their creations. So go grab your kids, family and/or friends and let’s build a princess castle!Continue Reading
