Over and over again we're seeing it on our ballots: A millage to keep our community's library open. Nobody enjoys paying more in taxes, but I know myself, for one, would hate to see a wonderful thing like my library get shut down. As a mom, I'm already experiencing the benefits of our library for … Continue Reading..
My purse and its contents have become a major issue during the past few months. Not only is it embarrassing to pull out a diaper at a meeting instead of a pack of gum, but it's annoying. My purse is like a black hole - I can't ever find anything I need and I lose my phone in it all.the.time. (The … Continue Reading..
I never was a big fan of beef in general growing up. As I started to learn how to cook, I was scared to cook with it, and was always afraid I wasn't going to cook it right and make myself sick. Then, this crock pot beef stroganoff recipe fell into my lap and now I'm a convert. This is so simple and … Continue Reading..
I'm an app girl. And a nature girl. Therefore, I love trying new apps that combine both of these things. So when the kind people at AT&T Detroit reached out to me to share 5 super cool apps for families looking to get out and explore the outdoors, I jumped at the chance to share them with you … Continue Reading..
Tonight we experienced the circus first-hand as Barnum 200, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's newest show, rolled into town at The Palace of Auburn Hills. To me, going to the circus is like Christmas morning...something new and exciting everywhere you look. This year, it was even more … Continue Reading..
It's official. Little K understands "no," and it has seriously rocked her world. I was putting my make-up on yesterday when I heard a soft ripping sound. Knowing well it was not the toys I had given K to amuse her for the 5 minutes, I thought for a moment...What the heck did she get ahold … Continue Reading..
...she may ask you to read it to her 1,000 times. Little K is obsessed with reading. In fact, it has now trumped couch cruising and gnawing on puzzle pieces as her favorite daily activity. We sit on the floor in front of our book basket and read. And read. And read. And unfortunately, her … Continue Reading..
I love learning from other bloggers. One blogger I know I can always learn something from is Ashleigh at Being Cheap Is Easy (a fellow Michigan blogger - yay! - in Grand Rapids). She always is sharing great ways to save...plus, she's so sweet and helpful, and her 3 little gals are adorable! One … Continue Reading..
There's no way to sugar coat it: Our daughter's room smells like a farm. That's what my hubby says at least. And I take his word for it since he actually did grow-up on a farm. Poop + pee-filled diapers and a disgusting diaper genie = one heck of a stink. With the weather changing and our … Continue Reading..
After missing out on VlogTalk for a few weeks, I'm happy to be back at it, even if it's just a short (but sweet!) video about some of our Halloween adventures. Want to give vlogging a shot? Link-up with the ladies over at VlogTalk. What did you and/or your little one dress up as? … Continue Reading..
A few weeks ago, I received a super fun package of treats from Stretch Island Fruit Co. in the mail. While the idea was to pass the fruit strips and rolls out to trick-or-treaters, I couldn't resist and had to taste some of the treats myself. The results? Yummy! The all-natural fruit snacks come in … Continue Reading..
Following up on last week's prompt about things I haven't done, Mama Kat asked us to list 22 things we have done. These aren't all things I'm especially proud of, but for the sake of entertaining you, I'm just being honest. I'm sure when Little K is old enough to understand all this she might have … Continue Reading..
