DIY Heart Garland | Valentine's Day Crafts for Kids | Valentine’s Day Crafts for Adults | Valentine's Day Activities | VDay Activities for Kids #diy #valentinesdaycraft

This activity is a fun Valentine’s Day craft for both children AND adults. I really enjoyed making this garland to hang in our breakfast nook, which is the space I use to decorate for different holidays. Before kids, I didn’t get too crazy with decorating for any holidays. I put up some stuff at Christmas, but that was about it. After kids, though, decorating became way more fun. My youngest daughter gets excited for EVERYTHING. Her reaction when she walks in and see’s new stuff out for an upcoming holiday is priceless. Well, that certain daughter requested that we decorate …

All opinions are mine alone. #mccainquickcookfries #friesfaster Anyone else have those days where it gets so busy that dinnertime creeps up faster than you know it? Or, do you have a kid that gets home from school right at lunch time, ready to eat and hangry for their food? As a busy mom, I have those days ALL THE TIME. To make those busy days even more challenging, my oldest daughter is extremely picky. There’s only a handful of things she likes right now, which makes mealtime that much more difficult for me. …

Jack Skellington Toilet Paper Roll Craft

Where are all my Nightmare Before Christmas fans? If you love all things Jack and Sally, then I think you’re going to love this Jack Skellington Toilet Paper Roll craft! This Jack is really easy to make, and it uses common supplies that you probably have at home already. It’s the perfect craft for kids to do during the Halloween season – unless you feel the Nightmare Before Christmas is more of a Christmas movie? There’s a big debate about this in the Disney community! Our family actually enjoys this movie year-round, so we would do a Jack and Sally …

At Home Toddler Activities

It has been a crazy busy week for me, which is why I’m so thankful for these three, at home toddler activities that keep my little one busy for more than thirty minutes at a time! These activities have been on heavy rotation over here and I don’t mind it one bit. I love activities that keep my little ones off the screen, help them develop their brains, encourage creativity AND require minimal supervision (so this mama can get some work done!). All of these toddler activities are little setup, little cleanup and keep my toddler entertained for long periods …

What happens to your milk if you don’t breastfeed?

If you plan on having a baby and know you either can’t breastfeed or you’re choosing not to, you may be wondering, what happens to the milk? I had the same question with my second pregnancy and I was surprised at how little information I could find on the topic. That’s what inspired this post! Since having my second daughter, I’ve been asked by multiple women that same question – what happens to breast milk if you don’t breastfeed? Here, I’ll share with you my personal story about what happened to the milk and my body after my second daughter …

Sexy Date Night Ideas

If you’re anything like me, sometimes you want a little more adventure on date night than just dinner and a movie. Yes, those are great too! Don’t get me wrong. However, it’s fun to spice things up a bit and try something different every once in a while. In a New York Times post, relationship researcher and psychology professor, Arthur Aron, suggests that the way to keep the spark in a long-term relationship is “to do something new and different – and to do it together.” In studies of couples, Dr. Aron found that partners who regularly share new experiences …

How to Practice Fire Safety with First Alert

Thank you First Alert for sponsoring this post. October is National Fire Prevention Month and is the perfect time to gather your family and discuss fire safety.  Recently, we bought our first home here in Southern California.

To give my anxious self some peace of mind, I wanted to come up with a plan to make sure my family is prepared in the event of a fire. Together with First Alert, we …

Diaper Hacks 101 (That I Use the Most!)

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/HuggiesⓇ. The opinions are entirely my own based on my experience. Do you know anyone in the world who would tell you that their favorite part of being a parent is changing diapers? Haha, I didn’t think so. It’s not exactly the most pleasant part of being a parent but since it’s something we all have to do, we can at least try to make the process a little easier. After close to five years of changing diapers, I’m excited to partner with HuggiesⓇ to offer two important tips to new parents: 1.) Use …

An Open Letter to My Daughter

This is an open letter that I wrote for my daughter just before her second birthday. To my sweet Stella, I can’t believe it’s been almost two years since the day you came into our lives. Now, I can’t imagine our world without you. It’s no secret that you and me had a rough start. Please, though, don’t ever mistake that for me not loving you. My love for you was strong and unconditional from the moment I found out you were in my tummy. Nothing can change that, ever. Looking back, you and me never really had a chance …

My Real Life Stay At Home Mom Schedule

My Current Stay At Home Mom Schedule with a Toddler and a Preschooler If you’ve been following along, you know that it’s taken me a while to adjust to life with two kids instead of one. My oldest daughter was an overall easy baby. My second daughter is the one that’s more of a typical baby – nothing horrible or out of the ordinary, but she is definitely different and because of that, I feel like I have to learn how to parent all over again. I’m learning that what worked for my oldest daughter might not work for my …
