Fall and Winter with Chasing Fireflies

holiday traditons with chasing fireflies

Fall and Winter with Chasing fireflies. Last year I had the great opportunity to work with Chasing Fireflies to promote their Holiday Traditions Campaign. The kids LOVED wearing and cozy up with their Personalized Pajamas. Those Pajamas have been worn throughout the Entire year. No Joke!!!

FALL into Organic

Fall into Organic and Non Gmo

FALL into Organic! Is Organic Really Better?!?!? That was the question I use to ask myself time and time again. To me Organic was OVERRATED and was way OVERPRICED and really wasn't much different then other Vegetables and Fruits found in your local Grocery Stores.  But was it Really? What does Organic actually mean, well according to Merriam Webster Dictionary 1or·gan·ic adjective \ȯr-ˈga-nik\ of food : grown or made without the use of artificial chemicals : not using … [Read more...]

The only down side to playdough was the MESS, which meant I didn't always get to play with it when I wanted to. If I would of known as a kid that you could make Playdough at home, I would have been over the moon. When our first son was born and as he became a toddler I came across this recipe ( this was before internet and pinterest ) I think it was in a … [Read more...]

#Udi's Gluten Free Philly Cheese steak sandwich

Having to go on a GLUTEN FREE diet can be overwhelming for some. We have found that some of the most common questions we get are... What am I going to do about Bread? What GF Breads are the best?

The Mason Bar Company

#Glass drink #green

The Mason Bar Company Drinking from Glass has always been the way of doing things for me. However when it came to our Children, I was always in fear that they would drop and break it, so Plastic seemed like the Best option. Plastic has become such the norm that I still find myself grabbing for those CUTE and FUN little Character Cups at the store. I have to conscientiously remind myself that We are trying our best Not to Do Plastic Cups. Mason Jars have become are normal drinking glasses and … [Read more...]
