Watermelon Pudding Pops

Watermelon Pudding Pops

Hey everyone! Sorry for being a little MIA last week!

I should preface this by saying...they're not watermelon flavored, just watermelon "looking". So if you're seeking a watermelon flavored pudding pop, you won't find it here. Sorry! These took MINUTES to make! Here's what you need: 2 Small boxes of instant vanilla pudding + 4 cups of milk that the … [Read more...]

Tips for Making Learning Fun with Disney Junior

Tips on Making Learning Fun for Preschoolers with Disney Junior #ReadyforPreschool #shop #cbias

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #Ready4Preschool #CollectiveBias Our son attends daycare, but this year he's officially in the preschool room and things are getting real. I can't believe that this time next year we'll be school supply shopping and preparing for him to set off on his Kindergarten adventure. It kind of breaks my heart just a little bit. He's still such a young "pup." He has a few things he's really into right now...but he's head over heels crazy about Disney Junior, which I really don't mind all that much, honestly, because he learns a lot from the … [Read more...]

Wallternative Hot Air Balloon Nursery Decor

Hot Air Balloons Wallternatives Nursery decor

A few months ago I finished up my Whimsical Nursery Reveal that I shared with you guys. The nursery turned out exactly as I had hoped, but I still felt like it was missing something I couldn't put my finger on. I really had wanted to incorporate more hot air balloon nursery decor into the room at the time, but hadn't found much that I liked to put in there, so I just kind of let go of the notion. Then I came across something that my friends at Royal Design Studio created.... a new company called Wallternatives! Wallternatives creates awesome decals, repositionable wallpaper, and more perfect for so many decorating options! In this … [Read more...]

An Honest Company Review

Getting Honest about The Honest Company from The Cards We Drew

Before I start, I want to point out that this is an unsponsored, unsolicited post. I decided that it was something I wanted to write about because I too wondered about this company and wanted a real mom's perspective on the products. When we first had our son The Honest Company was around, but it wasn't as well known as it is today. We were die hard Pampers users and sometimes I got to feeling bad that we were contributing so much waste, just in the form of diapers each year, to our environment. But I'm not the type of mom who can do cloth, so I just swept that guilt under the rug and plugged on. We used Amazon Moms to order our diapers … [Read more...]
