• The Complete Gift Guide for Outlander Fans

    Its November 4th which means Outlander season 4 premiers tonight!!! I became a big fan of Outlander after a fellow Instagrammer – Erin @Cottonstem mentioned it last year. The books sounded interesting and I had just finished reading the Harry Potter series and was looking for something new. I ordered the first one off of Amazon, Man was I hooked! I love historical novels and this one falls right into it!  These books will make you feel it all and you will be sad to finish the series because it is one that you wish could just keep going! I thought it would be fun to put together a Complete gift…

  • Its all a bunch of Hocus Pocus

  • All Things Pumpkin Spice

    Its officially pumpkin spice season! That’s right, Starbucks has brought back their pumpkin spice drinks and Tim Horton’s has their pumpkin spice doughnuts! Which means fall is officially here right?! You wouldn’t know it based on the heat wave we got this past weekend! With it being Memorial weekend I guess that it was good for summer to go out with a bang. As much as I love summer time and beach days, I also enjoy being able to drink hot coffee at all times of the day and wearing cozy sweaters. To give you your Pumpkin spice fix, even on the days that you don’t have one in hand……

  • A Coffee Bar Cart – Why did I wait so long!

      I honestly don’t know why it has taken me so long to put together a coffee bar cart! I really love having my coffee supplies, (minus the cream) all in one spot, and that it is not on my counter tops! My kitchen feels so much cleaner and less cluttered now that I have a coffee bar cart.     When my friend Nicole at Grace Filled Farmhouse posted her new coffee sign collection on Instagram and it inspired my to put together my own coffee bar. I had originally intended to keep my coffee bar on the counter but once I added the sign it just felt too…

  • Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Idea

      Mother’s Day is this Sunday! Sometimes smaller holidays like this sneak up on me. Life happens and I get busy and lose track of time and before you know it, the day has arrived and  I am unprepared. This year I was able to remember when Mother’ Day was because this year I will be running a 5K with my mom and Grandma! I am really looking forward to spending the day with them! Let’s hope the weather is nice for our run! This year I am doing something simple for my mom for Mother’s Day. It would also make a great last minute gift!     I found…

  • The Ultimate Guide of Toddler Must Haves

    Toddler hood can be rough and exhausting. I should know, I have one child leaving toddler hood and entering the preschool age and one child that is full-on toddler. I don’t know about you but my son seems to get into a whole lot more mischief then my daughter did! Often times it seems that we spend half of our days getting our toddlers out of things they are not suppose to be in or off of things they are not suppose to be on, or taking away things they are not suppose to be playing with. Toddler hood is a whole different world then Baby hood. So many things change, including the essential things for your child. I have…

  • 14 Fun Valentines books for Toddlers

    I love kids books and always enjoy finding new holiday themed books. I always stop at the seasonal kids book display in the store and look over each book. I do this of course, when I am not shopping with the kids, because they would give me about 30 seconds before declaring that they wanted to move on in the store. Luckily all of our thrift stores in the area put the kids books right next to the toys, so I can easily browse there while the kids search through the toys. Each season I rotate the books out with books for the new season. By rotating the books it feels like…

  • 10 Gift Ideas For 1 Year Olds

    (This post contains affiliate links) We had a great time celebrating Ryder’s first birthday with our family. The birthday boy partied hard all day with no nap and finally crashed just before dinner. First Birthday’s are always exciting. It is great to have all your family come together and celebrate your little one. They are moving from baby to toddler and most are doing it as quickly as they can walk. Buying a one year old a gift that they are going to love and play with again and again can be challenging, Especially if they have older siblings that might already have “everything”.  I like to buy gifts that children can…

  • 5 Gift Ideas for the Rad Dad on Father’s Day

    If your Dad is anything like mine he is really hard to buy gifts for. My dad has this bad habit of going shopping for himself right before a holiday. He has done it pretty consistently for years. He gives you some ideas as to what he wants and then before you know it He has gone out and bought it for himself.  I have had to unwrap and take things back and exchange them for something else numerous times. You think that I would learn and just buy his gift last minute but that would stress me out to much I think. I am a bit of a planner. I…
