Zoomer Dino: My kids finally get a chomping, roaring #ZoomerDino pet.

Posted by on Oct 2, 2014 in Be Inspired, Things We Love | 0 comments

I was upstairs getting ready for the day when I heard happy squeals and dinosaur roars coming from the kitchen. “Mom! Mom! Come down here!”, Madi yelled, “We have a new pet! We want to call him Chompers!” “They found him”, I thought, and headed downstairs to see what they thought about their new toy…I...

Gold Wire Table…love the wooden top on this little side table!  Use as bedside table, an accent piece next to an armchair, or even a plant stand. This Gold Faceted Vase adds a little panache to a table, windowsill, or dresser.  I can’t believe I just used the word panache. This golden nugget paperweight would be...

Last year, it was over Christmas, so my sisters and our families travelled out to spend the holiday with my parents in a hotel. It was...

Books for {Friend-Making} Kids: Peanut Butter and Cupcake by Terry Border

Unstructured time where you had to make your own way on the playground and find a friend. It was kind of tough for my introverted tendencies, particularly in elementary school, which has made me extra sensitive about it now with my own kids. So I always...

Since this week has been a rude wake-up call with the beginnings of the fall schedule, I thought I would let my kids take over “Things We are Loving Right Now…” the five-year-old… Over the summer, my five-year-old discovered Big Block Sing Song, which has become her absolute favorite thing to sit around watching on the...

But, you can make these cute little dishtowels that are inspired by the on-line version to help...

Have you heard of Stitch Fix?  Have you tried it?  The idea of a box of clothing surprises showing up on my door step was something I couldn’t pass up.  I received my first fix back in June and was not that excited about my pieces.  However, I’ve read enough reviews from other shoppers to know that a bad first box is not that...

First Day of Kindergarten Coping Books for Kids…and Moms!!

Posted by on Aug 5, 2014 in Be Inspired, Books for Kids, Books for Moms | 0 comments

In just under a month, I will be sending my last kid to kindergarten. I thought it would be easier the third time around, but every time I think about it, I get all choked up and my very observant (and somewhat insensitive) 7-year-old says, “Mom…are you going to cry…AGAIN??” And of course, he’s (annoyingly) right.
