Menu Plan Monday – Memorial Day


Hi everyone! As I sit here typing this I am SO tired and sore because we have been painting our house all weekend! I thought my arms would be what was sore after painting all day yesterday, but it’s my legs that are killing me. Sitting down in the air-conditioned living room is a very […]

Easy Beach-Themed Cupcakes


This simple beach-themed cupcake is great for any party – the kids will love the added bonus of candy and cookies! Plus, who can resist a miniature umbrella? Crushed Teddy Grahams for sand, Skittles for beach balls, and Finding Nemo fruit snacks for the aquatic life. :) Review & Giveaway


I’m always on the lookout for unique gift ideas. When Christmas rolls around I like to shop at small local places or surf websites for something different that my friends and family will really love. Many of my friends are now having children, so that means I’m also now on the hunt for unique gift […]

Menu Plan Monday – 5/24-5/28

Wordless Wednesday – May 19


I saw this on my way to work one morning, and it made me smile. Not that I condone graffiti, but hey, at least it was something positive!

Free At-Home Kids Activities


Here are ten activities I plan to do with J (and some with C, if they’re age appropriate for him too) this summer that you might want to try with your kids: 1. Fun with shaving cream: I’ve totally taken this idea from J’s day care. I’m planning to set J and C up in […]

Chicken Enchilada Soup Recipe


Before anything else, I have to get this off my chest – I tried tilapia this week… and hated it! I baked it in foil pouches with lemon, garlic, lemon pepper, a little butter, and veggies. The boys and Brian all liked it, but it still had too much of a fishy smell and taste […]
