Classic Cranberry Sauce

‘Tis the season for some traditional treats. Cranberries are one of those things that really set the holiday season in motion for me as soon as I can find them in the grocery store. The clerk cashing me out usually isn’t too impressed with my excitement, and it’s only in recent years I came to…

Oops! The Elf

With our living space being so open and the boys being too young to know not to touch the elf, our creativity is a little limited when it comes to his day to day activities. Thankfully I have a collection of fellow mommies with toddlers who post their ideas to Facebook and Insta for me…

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…

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…

Painted Rocks

When I was younger my mom set up this crafting table in our garage one summer for my friends and me to do all kinds of things and one of the crafts that we did an awful lot of that year was painting rocks. Fast forward to 2018, and everyone is painting rocks and leaving…

Entwined Vases

See what I did there? Vases wrapped in twine, entwined? Cheeky humor aside, these were another really simple (wildly inexpensive) DIY that I put together for our wedding. If you’ve read over or even made, the paper flower pots you probably have yourself a spool of twine by now. That and some glass bottles (along…

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…
