Vermont Nut Free Hot Chocolate {Review}

H is now over 2 years old. That means a lot of things but one of the most important is the inability to hide what the "big kids" are doing. He wants to be a part of everything! This is great...except for when the big kids want to drink and eat things that little guy can't because of a peanut … [Read more...]

Photography in 2014 and The Unexpected Everyday

Last June was a turning point for me. It was the month that I got an iPhone. It was also the month that I broke up with my camera. You see, ever since that bright, sunny day in June, a day right before we left for our vacation to Colorado, I haven't given my digital camera a chance. The iPhone is … [Read more...]

Wahl Hot-Cold Massager {Review}

* Disclosure: I received a Wahl Massager product for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own. For the last 6 months or so, I have had this area right above my shoulder blades at the base of my neck that has been super tense. Most of the … [Read more...]

Invitation Box {Review}

How do you handle return address labeling? Do you use a stamp? Do you use a sticker? Do you write it? For years I wrote our return address. Then I switched to stickers one year when we got a free sheet from somewhere. I didn't at all want to go back to writing it all of those times (this was back … [Read more...]

Lee Jeans Review and Giveaway

Remember awhile back, last spring, I professed my love for Lee Jeans? After a 20 year hiatus, and SO many changes (for the better) by Lee, I was back on the bandwagon. I went from remembering a brand for what I would call "mom jeans" (a.k.a. high waisted, tight rolled) to seeing them in a completely … [Read more...]

Wink Frozen Desserts {Review}

Try having three children, one of which has a food allergy, and wanting a family ice cream night.  In our case, this allergy happens to be a peanut allergy BUT if it were a gluten or dairy allergy, I would imagine it would be just as difficult to find ice cream that fits the bill. Especially ice … [Read more...]

Baking By Hand: Cinnamon Swirl Bread {Recipe}

I love recipes and I love cooking. Let me spill the beans now. It is not in my nature to use a mixer. There, I said it. I have this thing for mixing everything - by hand. Unless I flat out have electrically mix (like for buttercream icing or meringues), I do anything to work around it. Naturally, … [Read more...]

Nothing Better Than A Reading Party! LeapReader “Ready, Set, Read, & Write”

A few kids ages 4-6 and a new LeapReader "Ready, Set, Read, & Write" equals more fun than you can imagine! Especially when one of the books that is included in the package is a Monsters Inc. 3D book...with 3D glasses! LeapFrog gave me the opportunity to hold a party with a few kiddos to … [Read more...]

My Lanyard Maker {Review}

When I was growing up we made friendship bracelets ALL.THE.TIME. It was the thing to do. Remember? It was a challenge to do a rainbow knotted bracelet 8 rows deep. Day and night I spent making those bracelets. Pink and black...I made lots of bracelets with that color combination because it was … [Read more...]
