Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

Strider had his first experience with snow yesterday.  It was just as adorable as you would imagine.  I didn’t take the baby out in the snow yet, so I’ll save “Baby’s first time in the snow” post for another day. But I had to sneak in a photo of her because she melts my heart every time I look at her! I may not love the winter, or snow, or wind, or much else about...

No Bake Oatmeal Energy Bites

I am a little late jumping on the bandwagon since these have been around forever, but once I finally tried these bad boys out I not only jumped on the wagon but decided to be the driver! These energy bites have been lifesavers for me. They are easy to make. They are delicious. They’re healthy. They taste similar to no-bake cookies, but in a good, healthier way. I know most people suggest having them as...

It was more of a venting kind of post, but he thought that I might be able to actually give some advice and tips on moving with babies to other people and help them know what to expect when you move right after you have a baby....

6 Months

Our little belle turned 6 months old last month. Those eyes. Those cheeks. Those pouty lips. I seriously cannot get enough of this girl. My friend, Jenni, let me sneak over to her studio with my camera and take some pictures of our littlest bean. It was my first time hooking up my camera to studio lights and I loved it! It really made me itch for my own photography studio one day. Of course I...

Easy, Fun & Nut-Free Halloween Themed Lunch

Remember that healthy halloween snack idea roundup I did a few days ago? I thought I would share my own fun Halloween themed lunch idea that I came up with for my kiddos. I wanted something that I could send to lunch with my first grader and kindergartner to school, so that meant it had to be nut-free. It also had to be something I could make up quickly that morning if I had to,...

The Best No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

These little bars have a special place in my heart. A few weeks after I had my newest baby, Bella, my older sister Wendy and her family came up to visit. Wendy had mentioned that my 12-year-old nephew, William, was really good at making no-bake Reese’s bars, so I happily supplied the ingredients and watched him do his magic. A few minutes later (we were too impatient to wait the whole hour that was recommended)...
