Wordless Wednesday – Fall

When the girls were playing outside on Monday, I looked up at our maple tree and realized that the leaves have started to change. Fall is here! Of course, I had to snap a few of my girls. It’s such a shame that they don’t have any fun together. Read more […]

What’s for dessert – Apple Crisp

Ah, fall. A break from the humidity of summer, without the freezing temperatures of winter. Back to routines and actually looking forward to baking and cooking because it won’t cause the house to become insanely hot.

Nothing says fall and comfort to me quite Read more […]

Kidorable has made their products even better (#review)

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Kidorable. From their rubber boots to backpacks to towels, we have and love a wide variety of their products.

She still brings her Sophie out the odd time and loves nothing more than seeing little babies with their own Sophie. DK Publishing has recently released a series of books starring Sophie la girafe and I was more than happy to review Read more […]

Make #laundry day less shocking with Woolzies (#giveaway)

Summer is winding down now, with the cooler air and rain of fall rolling in. No more hanging my laundry out on the line if I want it to dry in a timely manner. We haven’t used fabric softener or dryer sheets in years due to cloth diapering (they can cause build-up and repelling issues) but now that we’re done with diapers we could go back…except that I have about a 10% success rate of actually remembering to put something in the dryer and I never remember to buy liquid fabric softener. I’ve been Read more […]
