Shape and color snack time game

    Hey mamas! I hope you have had an awesome week! We have a busy weekend ahead of us, but I wanted to pop in today with a fun snack time activity to do with your kiddos! I created this fun little game that combines color recognition, shape identification, fine motor skills, and most [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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), [...]

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 [...]

homemade banilla frozen yogurt

*Thanks Stonyfield for sponsoring this post! Making frozen treats can be just as fun as eating them! All it takes is your favorite Stonyfield yogurt, some yummy mix-ins, and a bit of space to run and play :) Stonyfield sent us this awesome Ice Cream Ball from YayLabs! You get to PLAY with a ball and [...]

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, my parents were in town this weekend to help with some baby prep! Together my mom and I tackled 13 different recipes that yielded 13 family dinners and countless breakfasts and lunches for our family in the weeks to come. Needless to say, my freezer is full and [...]

In effort to have a better run household in 2015, Jeff and I have revamped our mornings. We've realized that when planned correctly, they can be the most productive part of our day. Let's face it, after Jeff puts in a full day at the office and I chase a toddler all day, we're both [...]
