Around Here: March 2017

Hey mamas! How's life?! Things in our little part of the world have been up and down. It's been a loooooooooong winter of illnesses around here. In the past week alone between the two girls, we've dealt with: a sinus infection, pink eye, double ear infection, nose bleeds, and newly acquired motion sickness in the [...]

Building holiday traditions: Melissa and Doug Advent Calendar

This post is in partnership with buybuy BABY, a brand I love. All opinions here are my own. I mentioned in Monday's post that holiday traditions are becoming increasingly important as my girls get older. They notice all of the little things: special decorations, festive treats, and seasonal music. Seeing their eyes light up at [...]

Comfy and Cute Holiday Style

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. It's that time of year - Thanksgiving feasts, cookie baking, Christmas decorating, gift shopping, and a flurry of other fun holiday events. And of course all of these occasions (no matter how big or small) [...]

Haunting at Hogwarts

Owl Post for Haunting at Hogwarts at Omaha Children's Museum

Halloween kicked off early this year with our very first "adult night" at Omaha Children's Museum. Last Saturday they threw a Harry Potter themed bash aptly named "Haunting at Hogwarts." It was an incredibly fun event - they thought through every last detail and made the night truly magical! I have some photos below, but you [...]

The Perfect Travel Dress from prAna

Things have been pretty quiet in this corner of the blogosphere - mostly due to the fact that our family has been on the road for almost 2 weeks straight. We spent some time with my sister and her family in Iowa City before heading up to our old stomping grounds in Milwaukee. Along the way, [...]

one change i made to be a more attentive mom

If there's one thing I know about myself, it's that I'm not a multitasker. Yes, I've mastered the art of nursing a baby while making lunch for a toddler, but as far as actual mutlitasking {really attending to more than one thing at a time} goes, I'm an utter failure. But that's ok! I've learned [...]

clean and simple "mom style"

With two little girls to dress, feed, and prep for the day, my own morning routine is often the last priority. And to be quite honest, that has resulted in many, many days spent in yoga pants and last night's pajama top... yes, even in public ;) A couple months ago, inspired by reading KonMari and [...]

car seat safety checklist

Simple four step car seat checklist to ensure your child is safe and secure at any age

We recently upgraded Everly out of her infant carrier into a convertible car seat. Cue the mom sob - "my baby is getting soooo big!" I had a lot of anxiety around this big decision. You hear a lot about car seat safety in the news - we all know not to have our kiddos [...]

exciting news!

Whoa - hello there! Long time, no talk! I totally didn't intend to take a week off from blogging, but per usual, I tried to "be where I'm meant to be" from moment to moment. And it just so happened that last week blogging needed to take a backseat to teething, sniffles, snuggles, and life in [...]

here’s to 28

Hello hello! It's my BIRTHDAY today! I woke up to a wonderful breakfast courtesy of Jeff and the girls. When I came downstairs, Eleanor proudly declared that she cracked the eggs and made the smoothie. I'm a pretty lucky mama! As I sit here drinking the last of my coffee and trying to avoid cutting [...]
