Disney Pixar’s Inside Out – Trailer & Activity Sheets!

Are you already planning for the weekend?  I am!  And on the very top of our list is going to see Disney’s Cinderella (again!).  My girls really like going to the movies, so needless to say, I’m pretty excited about some of Disney’s upcoming movies, including the emotion-filled Inside Out! About the movie: From an adventurous […]

Creative School Lunches: March’s Very Lucky School Lunch

I can’t believe that it’s been a week since St. Patrick’s Day!  How did you celebrate?  Did you go to the parades?  Wear a bunch of green?  Devour some corned beef and cabbage?  Admittedly, this year was a bit toned down for us.  We read a few St. Patrick’s Day books, I managed to get […]

Cinderella is in Theaters Now + Printable Activity Sheets!

So have you seen it yet?  Cinderella is in theaters now!  All day long I’ve seen friends posting pictures of their kids at the theaters, and I’ve been more than a little jealous.  Two t-ball games, a soccer game, and a birthday party kept us too busy to make it to the theater today, so […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars {Recipe}

Normally when I make recipes, I make them with someone else in mind - my husband, my kids, my co-workers, friends, etc.  Very rarely do I make something that’s just for me.   And for that reason, I don’t make a lot of mint recipes.  My husband is not a fan, my kids tend to avoid […]

My New Response to that Pregnancy Comment I Always Hated

This morning, I forgot Everett’s sippy cup.  It’s the second time in 4 days that I’ve forgotten to put his sippy cup in his daycare bag.  It would be fair to say my average this week is not awesome.  The first time (Tuesday) I didn’t realize it until late in the day, but today, I […]

Our First Family 5K

I feel the need to preface this post with the declaration that I am not a runner.  Actually, if I’m telling the truth, loathe and despise just about everything about running.  Sorry runners.  I just don’t get the allure. But just because I’m not a runner, doesn’t mean I don’t want to get some exercise, […]

10 St. Patrick’s Day Books for Kids

“Mommy, what is St. Patrick’s Day?” That’s the question I was greeted with yesterday when I picked Greenleigh up from school.  As I struggled to explain the wearing of green, parades, leprechauns, and the legend of St. Patrick driving the snakes out of Ireland – which although untrue is a fun story when you’re 5 […]
