I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s. I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.   We have had a beautiful week here, and we are so excited to break out the shorts and t-shirts!  Last years things are a bit too small however, so I went to one of my favorite clothing stores for kids, Carter’s. Shopping for boy’s clothes doesn’t always bring forth...

Easter is coming upon us quickly, folks! Ian has been begging to dye eggs and so we went for it today.  We pulled out the box of dye (bought last year), eggs, and two cups.  Then we read the instructions and found out there are actually a few different ways to use the eggs and dye them: use tablets with just water, use tablets with lemon juice, or use tablets with vinegar.  Well, sure enough, Ian asked “WHY?  “Why does it say to add vinegar, Mama?” People,...

Conservation and our world has been a big topic in our house lately. Susie has really gotten into finding ways that we can repurpose things around our house and help conserve. We recently made a list of things that we can all do around the house to help save energy, water, and help the environment. Susie wanted to share her list with everyone. Plant stuff: We have been planting trees, flowers, and getting our garden beds ready for vegetables. Plants absorb carbon dioxide and...

Spring is right around the corner….hopefully. The girls and I can’t wait for the warmer days and to arrive, so in hopes of spurring them on we have been reading spring time books. One of our favorites is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.    Susie and I decided to make our own caterpillars. We can’t wait to share them with you.   These were simple easy to make, and while there was a little mess Susie had a lot of fun making “Peter...

      Pineapples were on sale today, so we snapped up two. I love pineapple and the boys do, too. Ian asked how pineapples grow. On trees? In the ground like a plant? So we did a little research and found this blog post that explained how to grow a pineapple.  We also admired a whole page of Google images of pineapples growing inside big leafy plants, which we thought was pretty cool! Well, we were cutting one up for snack anyway, right?...

I received a copy of this book to facilitate this review, however all opinions are my own. Being a young girl is tough, especially these days when social media, television, and magazines tell us we should look perfect, have perfect lives, etc.  The author of All Mascara is Not Created Equal, Jessica Landmon, says, “We certainly shouldn’t attach our worth to how many likes we get on a seflie.”  The book was created to give inspirational advice to...

With two very active little boys we have a lot of injuries at our house.  Depending on the type of injury we often use either an ice pack or hot pack. Recently we have started making our own and the boys love them! These are not only cute they are so easy to make. The Boo Boo Bunny can be frozen or warmed in the microwave. The rice inside makes it easy to manipulate and form around the injury that needs attention. What you Need: Chenille Adult Sock Buttons for eyes 2 Rubber...
