The Back-to-School Solution For Families With Dairy Sensitivities

Food/ Health/ Social Good

I’m all about peanut butter and S is all about apples (no food allergies here) but with my dairy sensitivity it has made eating something as tasty as apple PB&Js not as fun. After all, S likes to dip her apples in milk and I really enjoy the refreshing taste of milk after a bite of my protein-packed PB&J with apple slices inside. Fortunately, I learned about a different kind of cow’s milk that isn’t genetically modified or altered in any way, but that doesn’t give either of us tummy troubles either — the perfect milk for our after-school snacking in a few weeks!

My New White, Black & Gold Home Office

For the past 5 years my work desk has been covered in the kiddo’s stuff . . . and her crayon drawings. It didn’t provide enough space for proper work room but has sentimental value so I kept it. But with the kiddo starting full-day school in just a few weeks and my brand new computer arriving about the same time I decided it’s time to stop working from my bed and make myself a real office space! I’m so excited, guys. So excited!  Read more

My New Solution For Mom Hair

Mama Style/ Style

Do you take care of yourself? As moms it’s often hard to find the time to sit and relax, let alone think about our own wellness, but it’s time! Today, let’s start with our hair. There’s rarely time to nourish or take care of my hair — I shower then my hair goes in a wet mom bun until bedtime most days. If I actually get a chance to do my hair and go somewhere then I’m using a dryer and curling iron, which just fries my hair a bit more. At the end of the day it’s wavy, dry and lacks volume. So how do moms get through the busy day and somehow manage to take care of their hair too? I think I just found a solution that even works in this summer heat!

Family Trips to Fun Places: Mendocino, CA

Adventure/ Autos/ Travel

There’s something calming about the beach — Kiddos play nicely, the sound of the waves sooth and you can kinda just be. There’s definitely a reason I frequent beaches despite not being a great swimmer. I drove about 4-5 hours to Mendicino with my mom and kiddo for a few days away while test driving the Lexus RX 350 and we were all a bit sad for our 3 days, 2 nights to be over. Keep reading for things to do with the family when visiting Mendicino. Read more

Choosing the Right Rug For the Kiddo’s Bedroom

Design/ Home

Whether the kids room rug is based more on their need for one or your preference, there are a few things to think about when choosing the right one. I recently got rid of a giant white shag rug in S’ room because the pets thought it was grass they could pee on (ew) and started my own hunt for just the right rug to bring her new room together. Keep reading for how I found the right one, and tips for picking your own rug.
