As I shared in “Loving Life with a Toddler: The Things I Most Appreciate Today” I was extremely surprised by how deeply I loved being the mom of a toddler. I must say that I have a completely different relationship with our little girl, Baby B, than with our little boy, Kiddo A, but I’m just as fond of her toddler stage. She regularly leaves me missing the two-year-old version of the boy who made me a mom and I delight in watching her explore, develop, and acquire knowledge.
Baby B is quick to Continue reading
I know I’m not shocking any of you when I say that we are big holiday people. Well, more accurately, I am a big holiday person. I always go overboard and have been working on scaling back to a more reasonable level. I will always have special treats and traditions for my family around the holiday, but maybe, just maybe they don’t need quite so many. Continue reading
Today’s Mommy Juice Pick: Irish Hot Chocolate Buzz
Why I Picked This Mix: Friends, we are in the dead of winter. Our sun blazes through clear skies on most days, which is why getting a skiing sunburn in Wyoming is a real thing, but our bone chilling temps are difficult to ignore! When freezing time hits our town, I feel the need for some warmth and comfort. Continue reading

The chances of celebrating a “White Easter Sunday” are pretty strong where I live. Growing up, I hunted for Easter eggs in the snow after church! It’s likely that my children will celebrate Easter this way, as well. Because of this, I often struggle to find weather appropriate outfits for the spring time that are suitable for my kiddos. Continue reading
Wow! I am way past due on my recaps. I thought I had the timing under control when I consistently published my Summer 2014 and Fall 2014. But, then somehow we ended up here, well past the middle of 2015, and I still hadn’t written a recap. Luckily, throughout the last six months, I wrote about a few things happening in our lives so I’ve just included links with some other shares below. Continue reading
Easter is so…very…close and if you are like me, you may be looking for a last-minute treat to share with coworkers, friends, or family members. Look no further! A quick trip to the store (or possibly your own pantry and craft bin) will have you set to make these affordable and adorable Easter Cup Baskets.
Man, do I have warm weather on the brain! I have been dreaming of vacations, days by the water, shorts, grilling with friends, excessive amounts of playground time, and just about everything else I associate with spring and summer. Sadly, I really have no excuse. We had a pretty mild winter in Wyoming (until last week) with some warm days to give us breaks from the snow. But, regardless of what type of winter we have, it seems like I’m always ready for a change of season this time of year. So, I put a couple toddler boy outfit ideas together Continue reading
Working on projects with my kiddo is so much fun. Especially with new projects, I can usually visibly see him learning and absorbing what we are doing. On the other hand, these projects don’t always go how I anticipate in my head and one or both of us end up totally messy. The first time I got Play-Doh out, I couldn’t keep it out of N’s mouth. Forget building or squishing, he just wanted to eat it. But I kept bringing it out and eventually he was much more interested in “playing” with it. Continue reading
