Sriracha Egg Salad


Note: This post is not sponsored by any of the products I used.  Because I want to show my appreciation to you for visiting my blog, I'm putting the recipe first. "You're welcome!" (Sung in a Maui voice from Moana, of course.) We go through a lot of Sriracha in...

Brother and Sister


One of my favorite little moments to catch are when my kids are playing together. Roo never fails to make her little brother belly laugh and he thinks she is just the coolest person on the planet. Little guy isn't quite big enough to play cooperatively, but you'd better believe...

The Multi-Project Pumpkin! Part 2 of 5


Welcome to Part 2 of the Pumpkin Project Series! If you missed out last week, we gave our pumpkins a bath to prep them for all of our fun activities. This week, we're turning our blank canvases into faces! Roo has a couple copies of a sticker book that has animal...

I thought the drain was magic.


Guys, I have an embarrassing story for you. As some background information, you should know that when we moved into this house three years ago, I had a pixie cut, so my shedding hair wasn't that noticeable and it just slipped down the shower drain. My hair is just past...

Grandparents Day!


I want to take a minute to talk to you about Grandparents Day and how my attitude about it has totally changed. (Any of my children's grandparents: don't look at the pictures if you want to be surprised by your Grandparents Day present!) My first year as a mother, I...

Tiny Tot Tuesday: Art Time for Toddlers


Do you want to know what some of my favorite toys for kids are? They don't take batteries, they don't overstimulate the kids, and they aren't expensive. What could it be? Art supplies. That's right. Crayons, glue, construction paper, and scissors. I had several experiences when I evaluated children as...

Caramel Apple Coffee Cake


I'm about to become your favorite blogger. I'm going to share the recipe right up front so you don't have to search for it. Confession: I did not create this recipe. It came from one of my favorite cookbooks and I omitted the nuts. The Taste of Home Baking Book has a...
