• 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!

  • 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……

    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!

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…
