Ya know, Christmas hasn’t always been my favorite holiday (I’m more of a Thanksgiving gal), but having kids has changed me in that way. I absolutely love Christmas because they love it so much. And […]

Life Lately + A Last Minute Gift Guide //

December 22, 2016

I’ve had grand plans of all of these amazing things I want to share with you before the holidays. But, realistically, my time management has not been great lately. Combine that with a sleep regression (thanks, Remy Bea) and the stomach bug? Well, that’s a recipe for dirty dishes and takeout every night. So many-a […]

Kringle’s Inventionasium // Christmas in Cleveland

December 13, 2016

A couple of months ago, at Ari’s fourth birthday party, my aunt brought up a local Christmas event she likes to take her kiddos to  — Kringle’s Inventionasium! And she invited us to join them.

Keep Calm and Party On // A Stress-Free Cheese Board

November 30, 2016

It’s no secret that I’m not a fantastic cook. Despite my efforts and desires, my talents are elsewhere (think baked goods and such). But if there’s one thing I know how to do, it’s throw a party. And, sure, I may enlist the help of others for the ‘heavy lifting,’ but I will throwdown with […]

Thanksgiving is here! This holiday has long-been my absolute favorite. But over the last two years, that has changed. It still ranks high on my list of favorite festivities; but having kids means that Christmas is actually quite amazing.

Easy Gift-Giving with #GrouponGoods

October 30, 2016

Back before having children I felt like my gift-giving game was on-point! I mean, I had energy to plan and prepare for birthdays, Christmas, and everything in between. Now?

Happy Father’s Day.

June 19, 2016

Seeing Chad morph from boyfriend, to husband, to father of our children has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I’ve talked before about watching him, quite literally, turning into a father during the delivery of Ari. It was… emotional. And intense. Watching the love he immediately had for our children changed me, […]

Happy Birthday //

May 19, 2016

Last week my husband celebrated a birthday. Not a ‘milestone,’ but a birthday, nonetheless. And I? I had a blog post half written (which I later discarded, because it was nonsense made of half-written sentences) and a toddler that just wouldn’t cooperate. But we ended up recovering the whole situation. We had really awesome-ish birthday. […]

May 4, 2016

In case you live under a rock, Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend. And since that fateful October day several years ago, Mother’s Day has taken on some serious meaning to me. Yep, Moosh made me a Mommy and, much to my amazement, I’m forever a changed woman! That being said, I stand by my […]
