SWEET BITES: HOMEMADE SODAS

I don’t know about you guys but February is seriously kicking my butt. Not sure if it’s the lack of sun, daylight or warmth that has me feeling so blah and it probably hits me around this time every year and I forget, but OMGeeee! Spring cannot get here too soon. And I am not […]

LITTLE CITY GUIDE: ALKI BEACH, SEATTLE

Guess what? It’s still the weekend! Weekends that are still going strong on a Monday? Count me in please! Can we make this a thing? Ha! I mean, there are all those national donut, puppy, pizza, etc. days now… don’t they deserve a day of observance? Totally kidding, but I could get used to Tuesday being […]

MINI STYLE: VALENTINE’S DAY OUTFITS

Gimme all the red, pink, and hearts this time of year, but I think there’s also something to be said for trying valentines day styles and decor that are a little less obvious. Since my kids (mostly the boys) agree wholeheartedly, I decided to keep that in mind while putting together outfits for all the classroom […]

SIMPLE VALENTINES DAY KID CRAFT

Inspired by our love for eyeballs and faces put on any inanimate object and these adorable jammies that Poppy has, Tilly and I painted some happy little low-fuss hearts yesterday complete with facial expressions and patterned backgrounds. It was hard to stop making them but we’re all snowed in here (10-inches and still snowing!) today […]

YAY FRIDAY + A SUPERBOWL CHEAT SHEET

I love, love, LOVE playing sports but when it comes to watching them, keeping track of the score, players, numbers and especially the stats, I’m the absolute worst. My kid’s games, of course, being the main exception. The other one is the Super Bowl. Knowing the backstories, what players to watch for and team names (ha!) makes […]

FEBRUARY ARROW PROJECT: HOT COCOA STAND

Hey friends, happy February 1st! We’re kicking this month off with an arrow project that I’m super excited to share. The combination of the state of our country and middle of winter weather (hurry up spring!) is enough to throw anyone into a downward spiral, but there is one thing that always restores sanity… connecting with […]

BE MINE: NEW VALENTINES + A GIVEAWAY!

Sure it’s a slightly manufactured and forced day of love, but I’ve had a soft spot for Valentine’s Day for as looong as I can remember and look forward to designing a new collection of cards every year. They’re perfect for the little ones to give their playdate besties or the bigger ones to give […]

MOM PRAYERS

Potty training isn’t the only milestone happening in our home this week. While our 2 year old is learning to tinkle on the toilet, our 16 year old will be getting his license. Eeek! Quite the contrast right?! Over the last month as the topic has come up I’ve been asked by several friends how […]

MINI MAKERS: PAPER SNOWFLAKES WITH THE LAND OF NOD

Shared one of the easiest ways to make paper snowflakes with kids on the Land of Nod blog last week. Since winter calls for more time indoors (for most of us anyway ;) I wanted to make sure and give you the link. Nothing quite like a simple paper project to spend quality time with […]
