• Smile Brilliant – GIVEAWAY

    What is the first thing you notice about someone? For me, it’s their smile. It’s so important to keep your teeth white and your mouth clean. I started using an electric toothbrush last year. I never felt the need to have one because I always thought my regular toothbrush was working just fine. My husband and I decided to do the switch together and bought a popular name brand. I was amazed at the difference between a normal toothbrush and an electric one! Plus, we were able to get our boys excited about brushing their teeth by getting them their own electric toothbrush. I didn’t “shop around” to try out different…

  • Heart Shaped Cookie Dough Cookie

    Who doesn’t love eating cookie dough? It’s my favorite! I love it. I love licking the spoon, the bowl, everything after making a batch of cookies! Of course eating raw cookie dough is not good for you, so this time I made edible cookie dough! I was worried about whether or not making this without eggs was going to taste the same -but IT DID! I was so excited. Now, I make this all of the time -especially when I was pregnant! It’s a great alternative for those pregnancy cravings. Ingredients: 1 cup of flour 1/2 tsp of baking soda 1/4 tsp of salt 1/2 cup of softened, butter 6 tbsp of…

  • What Is Croup And How To Treat It?

    Any mom can agree with me having one sick child is hard, but having multiple sick children while you’re sick is the worst. It’s even harder when they have croup. Right before New Years Eli was diagnosed with croup. It was terrifying and exhausting. He couldn’t sleep, barely ate, barely drank, and didn’t want to do much of anything. What is Croup? Croup is a respiratory infection of the voice box and windpipe. It causes inflammation and swelling resulting in a barking seal-like cough and difficulty breathing. Your child may also have a high-pitch wheezing while they breath and flu-like symptoms such as fever, body aches, and congestion. On average,…

  • DIY Snow for Sensory Play

    My boys love sensory play. More so they love playing with anything messy. With them seeing the snow outside most days all they want to do is go build a snowman. Fortunately, for me, they aren’t too keen on the cold weather. So I found a great way to bring the snow indoors! (without actually bringing snow indoors). It’s super easy to make and chances are you already have the ingredients in your house! DIY Artificial Snow Ingredients: 2 cups baking soda 1/2 cup hair conditioner *I suggest any white conditioner to keep the “snow” from turning colors. I used Garnier Fructis conditioner and it gave ours a yellow tint but my…

  • Turkey Oreo Balls

    If you have never tried an Oreo ball, you are missing out. They are so delicious! Plus one of the easiest desserts to make! All you need to do is crush up some Oreos and add some cream cheese! Shape them into balls and place them into the freezer. After they are chilled just dip them into some melted chocolate. Super easy! My friend Kate was visiting this past weekend to visit the boys and meet little baby Oliver. The boys loved hanging out with someone new to show off all of their toys and books too. But I was mostly glad for the help. She even helped with these…

  • Olivers Birth Story

    Oliver Edward was born on September 2. My third child, my third son. His birth story is slightly different from Dorians and Elias‘. It’s crazy to think that all of my deliveries are different, but that’s how it goes -giving birth is unpredictable and each is unique in their own way. Previous Babies Oliver was born at 37 weeks weighing in at 9lbs. First of all, 9lbs? at 37 weeks?! Holy cow do I produce BIG babies! I can only imagine how much he would have weighed if he went full term! Dorian was 9lbs 15oz at 40 weeks, Elias was 9lbs 10oz at 39 weeks and now Oliver 9lbs…

  • Fall Activities

    This year we decided to do every Fall activity that we could fit into our schedule. Pumpkin patches, fall festivals, pumpkin crafts, desserts and more! We decided to do as many outside activities that we could before winter came and that meant all of the fall activities. Pumpkin Patch The first thing we decided to go was to visit the pumpkin patch at Soergel Orchards. The first time we went we were able to enjoy a nice hot day while strolling through. Dorian and Eli LOVED all of the pumpkins. They tried to pick up every single one. We let them pick out pumpkins so we could carve together later…
