This post about baby shower invitations and ideas is sponsored.  I have a firm belief that all babies should be celebrated in some way.  They are, after all, a miracle, each in their own right, and I think they should all be welcomed with some sort of occasion.  It doesn't have to be big or ...

Both of my girls love headbands.  One wears all the time, the other wears them for 10 minutes and I find them all over my house.  Headbands are fun, funky, sweet- they can kind of bring a lot to the "outfit party" so to speak.  The problem? We haven't found a good way to store ...

how to make a lego terrarium

We do a lot of gardening with our kids, but most of it happens outdoors. The kids are always asking for some plants in the house- and specifically, in their rooms, so I decided this week in honor of Miracle-Gro's The Gro Project, we would make a "Toyrarium" custom for our house.  We've done terrariums ...

We got a homework assignment for my Kindergartener.  We were instructed to send a Leprechaun Trap into school.  Now, when I get an assignment like this I'm always thinking about the stuff you put ON a project, to give it pizzaz.  My son, like his father, has been mulling over in his head for over ...

DIY Energizing Citrus Hand & Body Scrub

diy energizing citrus hand and body scrub

I love a nice body scrub. What I don't like are ingredients I can't pronounce nor easily identify.  I do love some fresh scents- and citrus is one of the scents I love best.  It's energizing, it's refreshing, and not to "girly" for the men in my house.  We had a Mom's Club playdate this ...
