Celebrating Season 2 of Just Add Magic with a Peppy Pixie Pretzel Recipe

My oldest daughter is growing up and growing out of many programs on tv. I noticed she gravitates towards shows with actual people and away from cartoons. She’s understanding different situations and growing up before my eyes. As she navigates through our Amazon Prime shows, she stops and reads descriptions to see if those shows […]

Comfort in my own skin

Whether your clothes are bulky for fall or lighter for summer, you are either comfortable in your skin or you’re not.

Deck the Halls with Peppa Pig and Friends!

It seems that over the past 5 years there has been a constant cartoon character that continues to be a favorite: Peppa Pig. My 7 year old, 4 year old, and even my 1 year old may not have similar tastes in many things, but when it comes to watching TV, I know Peppa Pig […]

All you need is love, and coffee..

Coffee.. I really don’t have to say more. Just the word invokes a sense of calm, or a feeling that you can conquer everything on your to do list before 1pm. It’s the sweetest “pick me up” and the best way to catch up with a friend. It’s something to look forward to each morning. […]

I’ve had a ton of fun wrapping presents with my girls these past two days. While it’s unfortunate they are sick and couldn’t attend school, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to spend time together and get some stuff done before the big day. I took each girl one at a time into […]
