Birthday Party Must Haves

S T O P  T H E  T I M E  P L E A S E

Our baby girl will be 8 in less then 20 days and she wants to plan her entire birthday party by herself. WHAT?! That used to be my job! I pride myself on putting together something fun and girly for her. But she is growing up right in front of my eyes and I can’t do anything about it [insert ugly cry]. At least she let me create her birthday invites 😍 for now!

Here are a few of her requests.

Indulgent Tea Blends

I love tea! Something about the aroma, the hot cup of goodness that makes everything alright in my world. If you know me, I am a coffee junky. But in the evening when I want to relax and wind down, I brew a fresh cup of tea. I especially love fresh, natural, loose leaf tea. The smell and the taste is unlike anything else.

Recently I discovered and partnered up with Hoogly Tea from Denmark and let me tell you, AHHHH-MAAAZE-ING! It is right up there with some of my favorites.

Great Kids Snacks


When it comes to snacks, I am obsessed. So are my kids. We are grazers around here 🙈 I often find myself looking for healthier alternatives to some of our favorite snacks and it is not always easy. We have tried and failed on many occasions. The taste is not the same and it is not always worth the change. However, I came across Great Kids Snacks and ordered their monthly 30 snack box and we were impressed. So many varieties of healthier snacks for all of us to try and the taste was up to par! So fun and delicious!

Over the past 10 years my husband and I have visited our fair share of all inclusive resorts and are always looking for the next best thing. So far there have only been a handful of resorts that we would visit again. The rest, while great, not amazing enough that we would go back. I am sharing our top all inclusive, family friendly Caribbean resorts.

Here in the Midwest we are finally seeing and feeling the FALL season. Up until last week, we still saw some 90 degree days. I was not complaining but for a photography junky like myself, I needed to see the colors changing. I needed to wear my fall wardrobe 😉 and my booties were calling my name. I am not one for the PSL craze but I love the smell of pumpkins, cinnamon and everything fall related. However, there are a few things that we as a family, traditionally do around this time of year. Fall photos are one of them but I already shared those with you 😉

That’s it bars

I am always looking for snacks that are better for us. In particular, I am on a hunt for items that are non GMO, low in refined sugars, low sodium, preferably real fruits and vegetables and so forth.  So when I was presented with the opportunity to check out these That’s it. bars, I was intrigued.
