SPring Flower Cookies

We have a lot of flowers/bushes to plant in our backyard this spring. Last summer, we expanded and reshaped some of our garden beds in the back and front of our house, and discussed taking a year to think about what we wanted to plant and how we’d want to landscape everything. Spoiler alert: we […]

Easter Basket inspiration 2021

It’s hard to believe that this time last year I was extremely pregnant, waiting on our loft to be turned into Sage’s room, and at the start of what I thought would be a week of social distancing. If only I knew then what I know now. I still remember putting the kids’ baskets together […]

Valentine’s Day Cake Pops

Just one more sweet recipe before Valentine’s Day! I’m a little relieved because all of this sugar around the house is killing me. Target’s valentine section got me good and I find myself digging for all the candy bags in our pantry. It doesn’t help that I’m in full hibernation mode over here. It’s been […]

Valentine’s Day Boxes 2021

This year’s love boxes are packed up and ready for the kids, and I had such a fun time putting them together (like always)! I almost had to pinch myself when I realized this was the first time I was putting three together. Three boxes for my three little valentines – so surreal. I’m counting […]

Valentine’s day books

I’ve always been a sucker for Valentine’s Day and while I get that it’s a “Hallmark Holiday”, the cheeseball in me loves that it’s an excuse to dedicate a day to celebrate the love I have for my husband and my kids. I mean, every day is Valentine’s Day for them in our home – […]

Gingerbread house french toast

‘Tis the season for gingerbread houses and dressing up all types of breakfast. Breakfast is just better when there is icing and sprinkles involved! Last year, we hosted a pjs and pancakes party with some of the kids’ friends and I was hoping it would turn into an annual tradition, but we’re continuing to keep […]

You know Dasher and Dancer, and the rest of them, but do you recall the most delicious reindeer of all? Yesterday the kids and I made these cocoa krispie reindeer treats. I melted the butter and marshmallows together, and the kids helped me add the cocoa krispies to the pot and topped them with sprinkles […]
