Whimsical Christmas Tree

Thank you Martha Stewart Living for sponsoring todays post. As always, all opinions are my own. It's the most magical time of the year and I'm so excited to reveal my 2017 Whimsical Christmas Tree.

DIY Teething Ring

DIY Teething Ring

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine. I'm currently dealing with the dreaded teething stage with my darling little girl.

Sleepless nights and cranky days are what I'm currently dealing with. I knew that the first thing I wanted to make using my … [Read more...]

DIY Will Trade Sibling for Candy T-Shirt

Get ready for the sweetest sibling shirts around. I made these for Halloween; however, any candy related holiday will work (Easter or Valentine's Day).

I kept the design pretty simple and I'm in love, and best of all the kids have received so many compliments on their shirts. I originally had the idea to make this shirt for my candy obsessed toddler, and then I decided well … [Read more...]

Surviving Hurricane Irma with Two Small Kids

Today, I'm getting a little personal. We endured Hurricane Irma a few weeks ago, and I just wanted to share our accounts of the evening and what I learned about weathering a storm of such magnitude with two small kids. I'll be honest, I had a hard time titling this post. The word "surviving" is strong. Did we loose everything? Were we holding on to a door for hours to make sure the wind didn't blow it open? Did we loose our roof? The answer to all those questions is No. We lucked out and I thank … [Read more...]
