We Love To Swim!

*We received this amazing opportunity for the kids to attend Love To Swim School in exchange for our honest review of their classes. As always all opinions are my own.* We love to swim!  Pretty much on a daily basis, our son asks us to go back to the beach. I’m not kidding, he loves it that much. He was just learning how to swim last October, but without a pool at home, he doesn’t […]

Spring Fling & Easter Things Round Up — Vegan Bunny Pancakes

Last year, after Easter, I came across an idea for bunny pancakes and mentally filed it away to try when the opportunity came around again. Although I pinned the recipe, there wasn’t much point as our kid’s are both allergic to dairy & soy. So, I adapted the yummy activity to be vegan and here are the results!  To make the pancake batter: 1 cup White Flour 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder 1/4 teaspoon Salt 2 […]

Moccasins That Give Back — TPMOCS

There are a few incredible small businesses that give you the opportunity to purchase native made moccasins. Since they are small and a bit off the beaten path, they do not get the recognition or appreciation I think they truly deserve. One such company, TPMOCS, made a custom pair for our daughter and they are breathtakingly beautiful. If you are into the look of moccasins and have been considering getting a pair for your baby or […]

Creating a space for YOU + your kids 

It’s not easy. Kids are messy balls of chaos and their toys aren’t often what I’d refer to as “sophisticated,” but despite all of that YOU can create a space that satisfies the needs of both parties & that everyone will love.  Think color. Find a few colors that you are into that complement each other and stick with it. We have a grey & green look going with wood furniture. There a few pops […]

Beer Bread + Lattes with Thoughtfully Co 

*I received these products free for review, but all opinions expressed are my own.* Happy Weekend y’all! This weekend has been a rough one as far as this whole parenting gig goes, so I thought I’d throwback to a couple weekends back when things were awesome and super fun. You might remember when we used our Thoughtfully Co Cirque Du Sweets box around Christmas. That brownie is still one of the best ones this family […]

Remember that time…with Milestone Baby Cards

*I received this product free for review, but all opinions expressed are my own.* For the most part, I’ve done a great job at keeping on top of baby K’s monthly photo and update. On the other hand, I have not done so awesome at keeping her first activities documented. I have photos scatteted across various devices, but nothing is organized. When our Milestone Baby Activity Cards arrived, I realized how many activities she had already done […]

Green Chef — Skip the store & have organic arrive right at your door! ((#Review))

*I received this product free for review. All opinions expressed are my own.* You’d think that after blogging for (almost) three years that I wouldn’t be so excited when boxes arrive, but I am! Every. Single . Time. So, when this box from Green Chef appeared on my door step, I couldn’t wait to see what was inside. And the toddler must get his enthusiasm for packages from me because he was my shadow throughout the entire […]

A Trinket Trunk — Unique Handstamped Jewelry with an Unexpected Message ((#Review))

*I received these products for review. All opinions expressed are my own.* As I’ve gotten older, I’ve found that the items that bring me the most joy are the ones that are simple, beautiful, and heartfelt. One such piece is my green heart necklace that my husband (then fiancé) bought me from Pike Place Market in Seattle and gifted me when we met up for dinner. I cherish that heart. For me, the sentimental value […]

My husband took my last name

When I was a little girl, I always assumed that I would take my husband’s last name since it was just what a woman did when she got married. As I grew up, I started to think about the fact I didn’t want to change my last name because my Dad’s last name would end with me if I did, and that only the greatest affection for my future spouse would allow me to make […]

With a Thankful Heart

It seems appropriate to end the month of November with a thankfulness post. While I am thankful for so much — our kids, my husband, my parents, my brothers (and sis-in-laws), and my grandparents– what I am most thankful for is the everyday moments.  Reading a book to our son when he crawls into my lap. Reading it over and over again because he’s not ready for it to end.  Rocking our daughter to sleep […]

Capturing Your Family Moments ((Samantha Sloan Photography Review))

We have never had family pictures done by a professional until just this past weekend. Instead, I have always set up my Nikon and attempted to do it all myself. It was easier when we just had one kid to contend with, but so much harder now with two. Let’s just say my attempts had varied results. That’s why when Samantha reached out to me, I was thrilled for the opportunity to have a professional […]
