Introducing Snuggle Up Buttercups

Guys, I'm so excited to be sharing this today.  There have been big things going on behind the scenes here.  And they involved stacks of cuddly fabric, lots of hours behind the sewing machine, and one tiny product tester getting a whole lot of snuggles. I temporarily closed my Etsy shop … [Continue reading]

Healthy Beef and Cabbage Stew

Yawwwwnnnn.  You may have noticed it's been a little quieter around these parts lately.  Part of it is thanks to the dreaded four month sleep regression.  My sweet baby boy has never been the stellar sleeper that his sister was, and so all of this waking up every hour nonsense is foreign to me.  I'm … [Continue reading]

Can I tell you something weird?  Sometimes I think that one morning, my alarm is going to go off and I'm going to be back in high school, living in my parents house and none of the last several years would have happened.  I wonder how it's possible that I could be married, living in a house with two … [Continue reading]

Well we're back to the routine folks, and I'm not going to lie, in some ways it's a total bummer.  I may or may not still be quietly listening to Christmas music in my car to get me through the post-holiday hangover.  But in other ways it's kind of nice to see the friends who have been busy or out … [Continue reading]

Hello, 2016

Well hello there 2016.  Good to meet you.  Once we hit September I always know the New Year will be just a blink away and with baby boy {getting bigger every day} it went even faster than I could have imagined.  Between all of the spectacular celebrations, joyful moments and exciting "firsts" it has … [Continue reading]

Sometimes, when I introduce a recipe, I say something along the lines of "this could not be any easier."  And I think I said something similar when sharing my Santa Hat Mini Cupcakes a few years ago.  In mom-of-one-child-land, the easiest recipe involved minimal baking, minimal decorating, and … [Continue reading]
