I haven’t dressed up for Halloween in years. I’m pretty sure the last time was when S was 2 and I made a DIY Flintstones costume for us. But this year, the kids and I are matching thanks to this super easy butterfly, flower and bee themed family costume idea.
Summer break is almost over, which means it’s already time to shop for back-to-school outfits! But between family vacation and pre-fall repairs families can be on a tighter than usual budget, making cute, functional styles at the best price all the more essential. I scored some cute school outfits under $50 for my daughter and had money left to get myself some new clothes (hey, a mama needs to look decent too, right?)!
There are so many different cute styles of baby clothes now that I’ve been so excited about Spring! When you’re a mama to a baby each outfit carries so much importance as your little one wears it while doing everything for the first time. I knew that I wanted a very special outfit for River to wear during Spring to celebrate both Easter and Mother’s Day and I found the absolutely cutest dapper spring style for baby that I just had to share!
My daughter is 5 and would go days without brushing here hair if I didn’t ask her to before we leave the house for the day. I’ll admit that there are still days she doesn’t do it. Why? I’m one of those parents that feels it’s her body, her hair. So as long as it’s clean, looks OK and we’re not on our way to go get pictures I might ask her to brush her hair or let it go. I’d prefer she did her hair, though, so I introduced her to some items that would make doing her hair a bit less frightening (for both of us) and guess what? They work! Read more

Shopping for my oldest nephew has always been difficult — My brother’s in the military so they move every few years to places that aren’t exactly close to home and I don’t see them that often. Now that he’s a full-fledged teen I was feeling completely lost on what kind of Christmas gift to get him this year. Shopping for my daughter or my niece is easy for me, shopping for my oldest nephew? Not so much. Fortunately, my nephew happened to reach out about a fundraiser for his school basketball team and then just a week later I learned about the opportunity to check out the new NBA Reflective Collection Clothing at select Target stores! I adore giving gifts that people want and appreciate, but it’s always a bonus for me if the gift fills a need or practical use. Now that I know he plays basketball, getting him reflective clothing made for basketball players seems like the perfect gift. I’m so ready to be the favorite aunt. Read more
