Christmas Decorations

These were so much fun and really easy! ♥ Remember those old wooden trucks and blocks that were practically in every elementary classroom throughout the 90s and early 2000s? They’re basically just 2×4’s cut into different shapes and sizes. Well, we happened to have a small collection of them at home and unfortunately (because my…

Pinecone Christmas Trees

Tis the season to dig into the craft cupboards and get everyone into that festive feeling. We’ve had the pinecones lying around in our fall decorations for months and thanks to some Pinterest searching and a little creative magic, I had a fun little ideaTis the season to dig into the craft cupboards and get…

Simple Vegan Hot Chocolate

With flurries heading our direction already, it’s time for hot chocolate. What took me ages to find online took my husband a whole google search to dig up, but while I wait for some vegan hot chocolate packets to come in the mail I made this quick fix. It’s creamy, very chocolatey, and absolutely satisfied…

Halloween 2018

Last year was all about our DIY Halloween but with a great deal on costumes at Target this year I couldn’t resist buying the boys exactly the costumes that they wanted. Except for our little Mickey Mouse addict, he already owned his costume and all of the sass that came along with it. For the first…

Summing Up Christmas

A little bit late but a Merry Christmas to each and every one of you, I hope that your holidays went off without a hitch. I’m one of those “only 359 days until Christmas,” types of people so I am already excited for next year. As for 2017, there were a few things that truly…

Christmas Cookies

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house the kids were on a sugar high. Well, I suppose not just the kids, after all someone has to eat all these cookies and milk. I really wasn’t feeling the idea of trying and potentially failing at creating my own vegan cut out recipe, so…

Dear Doctor

Thanks to a sudden sickness in the house, yesterday was just another day that was too busy to even attempt writing anything. Today I want to thank everyone who helped make yesterday a little bit less stressful. I’m trying to be a “real grown up” and make the appointments to get my health checked when…

Persuasive Media

Today has been a busy day. Work, dentist, grocery store, house chores and Survivor is on which means I forgot to write until now. I am thankful for all media that conveys a positive message. Whether it’s a happy video of an animal sanctuary on Facebook or an old movie that has wholesome content, I…

So Full Of Wisdom (Teeth)

On the seventh day of Christmas I am thankful for soft foods and a next day dentist appointment. While not having tooth pain would be preferred, beggars can’t be choosers and I will gladly settle for some vegan ice cream. Over the summer, because I am the worst kind of procrastinator, I had this dull…

Five Must Watch Christmas Movies

Next to singing Christmas carols all day long (even when you only know a few words), watching Christmas movies is the best way to get the entire household into the Christmas spirit. For me, even as a little girl, the old school claymation and stop motion films were always my favorites so it should be…
