Testy, Trying, and TWO

This post was developed in partnership with Similac. All opinions are my own. My sweet Everly had a birthday last month, and my oh my, that girl is acting every bit like the two-year-old she is! I wouldn't call the two's terrible.... but I would call them trying... or testy ;) It's a battle of the [...]

This post is sponsored by Stonyfield through my partnership with the YoGetters program - we love our Stonyfield yogurt :) Sometimes dressing for mom life can be difficult. And honestly, with two little ladies to chase, comfort is my main concern these days! prAna was kind enough to send me one of their amazing Cali [...]

Last week Omaha finally received a proper snow! Surviving a frigid Midwest winter is much easier with a beautiful blanket of fresh snow on the ground, and the girls and I took FULL advantage. After bundling up with boots, snow pants, hats, mittens, and coats, we enjoyed our backyard winter wonderland! Baby Evie got to take [...]

Mom and Me Baking Day

Preschooler approved cookies

As I've said before, holidays are perfect for finding ways to connect with our kiddos. And we all know it's not really Christmas without COOKIES! But when I decided to have a baking day with Eleanor, I knew it would need to be on her terms: Things Eleanor Enjoys Pouring Stirring Taste testing Things Eleanor does [...]

Grandpa Dairy Farm

It's a well established fact that my family is obsessed with Stonyfield yogurt! And back in August I had the incredible opportunity to fly out to Vermont and tour several of Stonyfield's organic dairy farms. It was an amazing experience and I learned SO much! I've tried to type out this post a million times but found it difficult to encapsulate [...]

Lunch Packs for Little Hands

It's the beginning of a new era: Eleanor starts preschool this week! She is incredibly excited, and it's been so fun answering her questions and watching her anticipation build for the "big day." She and I will both have a learning curve getting used to everything school entails (new people, new responsibilities, a new routine), [...]

grassfed quick facts

I've had a lot of really neat experiences come out of my blogging endeavors, but this month I got the chance to be a part of something really cool and learn a bit along the way. I've been working with Stonyfield for over a year now, and as you know, our whole family (from the [...]

Energize Your Day With Our Hemp Protein Smoothie

*Thanks to Manitoba Harvest for sponsoring this post through my partnership with FitApproach  Mornings start pretty early around here - both girls are usually up by 6:00. And if I want to get a workout in before the day starts, I'm up earlier. And if Evie is teething, well, you get the picture ;) Starting [...]

Does anybody else get tired of preparing the same old snacks for their kiddos? Well I certainly do! And recently I've gotten in the habit of grabbing not so healthy options for the sake of convenience. But a well-rounded snack doesn't have to be complicated! When OXO Tot sent me a few pieces from their [...]

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Cuddle up with your sweetie and this chilly, chocolatey dessert! I've always thought Valentine's Day is one of the best holidays. Sure, you could argue that it's a totally fabricated, commercial day, but what isn't to like about a day that's all about spoiling the people you love, sending [...]
