LEGOLAND. It’s what kid dreams are made of! As far back as I can remember, LEGO bricks were the cool toy to have. I had a few sets growing up, but they were nothing quite intricate and elaborate like the ones my little ones (and maybe myself) have now. Each birthday or holiday, you can bet that there’s a new set on their list. As parents, we absolutely love LEGO sets because it allows our children to think, be imaginative and constructive.Continue Reading

Sure, you’re probably thinking, “This woman is nuts!”, but am I really? You see, I’ve had pets all my life. I’ve loved them all and experienced the pain when their time was up. I’ve had some pretty amazing dogs (and cats) in my lifetime. Do I miss them? Absolutely! Do I miss one the most? You betcha!Continue Reading

Gearing up for school every morning can be quite the challenge in our home. My children are so much like me when it comes to getting good sleep. We basically can never get enough go it! So, when it comes to mornings, they’re usually pretty slow to get out of bed. Over time, I have found tips and tricks to get them up a bit faster. Offering breakfast seems to work because they are at the table faster before I am even done picking out their school clothes.Continue Reading
Wow! It feels so good to finally get things going on the blog again. I had a freak accident which took me off of my feet for over six weeks, but with the help of my hubby and amazing friends, I am well on my way to getting back to my old self. Being stuck on the couch for over 6 weeks was a long road, but I am so happy to finally be walking again and getting back to our routine.
The Holiday’s came and went in the blink of an eye and I felt terrible that I wasn’t able to post anything for you all during that time. So as soon as I felt the least bit up to par, I started planning for Valentine’s Day. I finally had a chance to go out on my own the other night and I can’t even explain the feeling I felt when I walked into the craft store. It was a bit overwhelming and so many ideas came to mind. I literally wanted to buy the whole store.Continue Reading

Our week days have been pretty hectic lately. Bunbun’s homework load has increased slightly, which means less time spent doing the things we need to do. I wish I was one of those moms that could get everything done with minimal time, but I guess my time management skills aren’t as great as they once were. But let’s face it, being a Mom is a lot of work!Continue Reading
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

Parenting is no joke! I mean, let’s face it…It’s tough work. It’s constant, never-ending work. People often ask me what I do all day since I’m a stay at home mom. That question is usually pretty insulting to me because I think most people have the perception that I sit on the couch and eat ice cream all day. In reality, that is far from the case and truthfully, I’d really like to answer their question with the myriad of things I do day in and day out. Listen, just because I don’t work a 9 to 5, doesn’t mean I sit around all day.Continue Reading
