Today we are sharing the last post that will appear on Jelly Bean Journals. While it is challenging to say goodbye to this beloved community, the blog has served it’s purpose and we are moving on to our next chapters. We have loved sharing our parenting stories, wins, struggles and experiences just as much as we have loved hearing yours. You have brought us so much joy, laughter, peace, and comfort. We only hope we have offered a small piece of the same to you. Thank you to our family, friends, readers, partners, and guest bloggers, for coming on this journey with us. We will forever be grateful for your support, encouragement, and friendship. We take you with us, and you will always be in our hearts. Here are some words from each of us: Continue reading

Here at Jelly Bean Journals, we honor our very purpose as a blog by celebrating all things sweet and sour about mommyhood. We openly and honestly talk about the good, bad, beautiful, and challenging things we have experienced being mommies. Being a mom also means finding other moms to lean on for support, sisterhood, and fun! Thus, enter our ongoing Mommy Juice Series, our third Mommy Juice event and a recent Momscow Mule Tour with 37 awesome friends! Scroll down to check out details about this event and the drinks we tried. Continue reading

Today’s Mommy Juice Pick: Hot Pumpkin Tom and Jerry
Why I Picked This Mix: I’m still not sure why white girls get a black eye for liking fall and all things pumpkin. Nor do I fully understand what being basic means, but I will readily admit that my favorite season, since forever, is fall. In turn, this may be why I fit the stereotype…but, let me tell you why I don’t care. Continue reading
Three years ago, Seano and I bought what we believe is our forever home (or at least a long, long, long time home). If you remember, a few years back I struggled to leave our last home, but because our current home has so many of the features we were afte Continue reading
Moms! We are offering another Mommy Juice Tour!
Join us in downtown Casper for a night of drinks featuring Moscow Mules and Moscow Mule inspired drinks. Our “Momscow Mule” Tour will feature sips and eats from some of our favorite local places including Raccas Pizzeria Napolentana, Gaslight Social, and Frontier Brewing Company and Taproom. Registration is required.
As always, transportation from Casper Executive Car and Limo will be provided for drop offs in Casper, Mills and Evansville. It’s the perfect way to spend time with old and new friends after the hustle and bustle of Halloween. (If you have a college sports fan in your life, have them catch the University of Wyoming vs Colorado State game at Frontier Brewing Company and Taproom at 5:00PM and let them know you will join them close to halftime! They can have a ride home at the end of the night, too, for an extra $8.) We call this a Mommy Juice Tour in honor of our series, but you don’t have to be a mommy to participate!
Your night will include great company, Moscow Mules and mule inspired drinks; dinner featuring pizza, bread, and salad; a ranking card to provide feedback on your drinks; entry to a copper cup prize drawing; and transportation (within the Casper, Mills and Evansville area)! Have your ride drop you off at Raccas Pizzeria Napolentana (430 S Ash St, Casper, WY 82601). We will take you home at the end of the night. You must be 21 years old to join us.
We had an awesome turnout and an amazing time on our Mommy Juice Margarita Tour and our Mommy Juice: Hang at the Hangar with Mystic Mountain Tour. Like last time, spaces are limited and your spot is not confirmed until your registration form is complete and payment arrangements have been made. No group registrations will be accepted.

Past Mommy Juice Tour Info
If you have followed along with our blog since the beginning, you know writing Big Brother N a birthday letter each year is a special tradition I started when he turned 1. I plan to continue this tradition with Little Brother N, too. You also probably know my boys look quite a bit alike. Some pieces of their personality are very similar too, but in others they are so, so different. It was so fun reminiscing and reflecting on Little Brother N the last year and my continual evolution as a mother. Hope you enjoy and share in some of my sentiments! Continue reading
I asked and you delivered! This is one of my favorite Jelly Bean Journals series and this time the True Toddler Fashion on display is from your tiny self-dressers! Brace yourself for a repeat venture of a project I shared with you back in 2015 and then, again, with round two just this past May. I had asked if any of you would be up for sharing your own renditions of True Toddler Fashion, and boy did you deliver! Let’s go with part three of “TTF” where we explore and celebrate the true, self-created style of our toddlers!
