#Win It: $50 Gift Card For Shutterfly Graduation Announcements

And the winner is Dawn (mightynaynay), congrats! When I graduated from High School, I didn’t have cool graduation announcements. My mother was the announcement, lol!

Shutterfly offers a line of graduation announcements that are perfect for theContinue Reading

Happy 3rd Birthday, Jayden!

Like the wick on a burning candle, the years seem to wane before my eyes. Today, our little man turned three. Three. This morning, I made chocolate chip blueberry muffins and we gave him his new tricycle which he calls his “prize”. We ran some errands which included picking up some special items for himContinue Reading

Be Kind To Earth: Starting A Garden

This year, we are planting a small raised bed and container garden in our backyard. Having a garden a couple of steps outside of our kitchen, we’ll be able to enjoy and appreciate fresh, pesticide-free produce. Admittedly, I don’t know what I’m totally doing. I’m still doing some research. I’ve grown tomatoes, bell peppers, romaineContinue Reading

Wilton Mom ReTreat 2011: Punch. Cut. Decorate!

Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to attend the Wilton Mom ReTreat held at the Wilton Headquarters in Bolingbrook, IL. We stayed at the Aloft, a fabulous, upbeat hotel. Here are some photos of my cute, loft inspired room. Who can resist the hotel bathroom photos? During the ReTreat, we enjoyed complimentary breakfast atContinue Reading

Eggosaurus!

Over the weekend, we decided to color some eggs using an inexpensive kit I found at Walmart. I couldn’t help but to grab the Eggosaurus kit because of its dinosaur themed decorations. Jayden loves dinosaurs second best to trains of course. Since this craft project would be for display only, I didn’t let the currentContinue Reading

Play Kitchens For Boys: Mom Says Yes, Dad Says No

Greg and I have been going back and forth about getting Jayden a play kitchen. Admittedly, a piece of me wants to get one for me, as I didn’t have one growing up. Greg feels that Jayden doesn’t need a play kitchen… because it’s girly. He should have a workbench or a grill. I feelContinue Reading

Having Nasty Toilets Freak Me Out

While I’m on a journey to greening my home, using eco-friendly cleaners and such, I fail/slip up/choose to use conventional cleaning projects on our toilets. I feel like the our toilets are the nastiest things in the house (our toilets are older, btw) and they NEED to be cleaned with some pretty tough stuff forContinue Reading

A Simple, Plush, Easter Basket For My Boy

Egg Dying kits are for another post :). As you all know by now, I love doing special things to celebrate seasonal changes and holidays. When it’s time to start preparing for the next holiday, I always have big dreams of doing something super creative and crunchy. Time always seems to get ahead of meContinue Reading

New Delitefuls Seafood Meals And Beverages From Bolthouse Farms

I had the opportunity to try Delitefuls, an all natural, preservative-free line of frozen seafood meals exclusively sold at Walmart. Each bag retails for $5.48 and contains two meals in Smart Pouches that allow the meals to be baked rather than steamed in the microwave in 6 minutes or less. Normally, I’d enjoy meals likeContinue Reading

Repost: Playdate Therapy

Today, I’m missing “Wednesdays”. Haven’t had one since last summer due to life changing events and tight schedules. Here’s a repost from exactly a year ago. Sometimes I still get the “playdate jitters” as I continue designing my life element by element… Before giving birth to my son, I never thought much about playdates. ButContinue Reading

Desiring More

I’ve been taking some time to work on projects that I’m passionate about and put me in a Flow state of mind. Projects that I have put on the backburner too long. I’ve been kindly saying “no” and archiving opportunities, so that I can work on certain aspects left untouched. I cannot help people, ifContinue Reading
