Keep Healthy Summer Foods Healthy!

***This post about healthy summer foods is sponsored by Tessamae's*** I have a teensy bit of a problem with recipes in my kitchen. As in, I don't use them. While my methodically-bent husband gapes in horror at my wing-it approach, my favorite season to toss dishes together is summer. Grabbing a bunch of fresh veggies from our garden and some local produce, I'm all set to channel my inner creative chef. While notably, the smoke alarm ends up going off every single night, and most of my creations end up more basic than culinary genius, I am proud to say they are almost always ...

Our Annual Dutch Wonderland Visit, a Summer Highlight!

***This is a sponsored post about our Dutch Wonderland visit.*** Oh hey! Anyone check the heat index? A bajillion times off the chart and no sign of relenting? No sweat! That only means it's summer in these parts and more accurately, Dutch Wonderland-visiting season in our neck of the woods. The thing is, my kids LOVE Dutch Wonderland.

Let me be clear: when someone offers me free cheesecake, I'm there. While summer is fantastic for splashing around outside and endless hours of playtime, I'm a big fan of sliding in a nice family break once in awhile--you know, to keep Mommy ...

Custom Invitations for any Occasion

***Disclosure: This post about custom invitations is sponsored by Basic Invite and I have been compensated for my participation. All opinions are my own*** In just one short month my beautiful daughter will be turning ONE! Apparently I'm in a cloud of shocked disbelief (or maybe it's just second child syndrome?) because I haven't even started planning the party.  I've had some fleeting moments where I consider it, but then someone cries or yells and party planning notions are forgotten. I can’t even find time to fold laundry, why on earth do I think I can handle a birthday party? The thought of sending out invitations, picking a theme, prepping food, and ...

We Made It to 5!

My son turns 5 today.  It’s funny because there are many, many things I thought shortly after he was born, but never once did I think, “We will survive this for the next five years.” He is my gentle child, my kind soul.  The one who tends to be more laid back and accepting of his […]
