Chocolate-Peppermint Baked Cake Donuts

What to Do With All That Halloween Candy?

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Arm & Hammer™ Spinbrush™. A couple of weeks ago, my girls had their yearly dental exam. I don’t know why, but it terrifies me every time we go. It’s as if I become this horrible parent who is failing their children with the mere […]

Mango Yogurt and Granola Bowl {How to Master the Mango}

I’m a huge mango fan. I have been since I was little and my mom would buy them. Now, I get to share my love of mangos with my girls. Of course fruit is “healthy”, but did you know that a one-cup serving of mango is just 100 calories. Plus, they also provide 100% of […]

Egg & Cheese Egg Rolls with Gravy

Egg & Cheese Egg Rolls with Gravy

Let me start this post by saying, we eat dozens of eggs per week. It’s kind of ridiculous. Eggs for breakfast, usually scrambled. Eggs for lunch, because I love a good egg salad sandwich. Eggs for snack, because my girls love deviled eggs. Eggs for dinner, because who doesn’t love breakfast for diner?? See. Eggs galore! […]

In my last post, I featured a really simple way to create your own framed headband and/or jewelry holder. While the frame was a yard sale find, the chicken wire and everything else used to make it came from Home Depot.

How Do You Connect With Your Individual Heart’s Power?

How Do You Connect With Your Individual Heart’s Power?

I’d say that I am a very spiritual person. More so as I’ve become an adult and parent. I believe in more than just things happen. They happen for a reason. Recently, I had the chance to read “Power of the Heart” by Baptist de Pape, a young lawyer, who was anxious and worried about his future when […]

Ladybug Themed Party Ideas

Ladybug Themed Party Ideas

I love ladybugs. When I was little, I would visit my grandfather every summer. One summer, they actually had some ladybugs lay eggs in one of the guest bathrooms, in the shower. They hatched, and it was incredible to see the what seemed like hundreds of red ladybugs. Even now, my mother calls my oldest […]
