DIY STAR WARS #ROGUEONE NIGHT LIGHT

Night Light

Having your children reach the age where they are really excited and into Star Wars seems to be a major life milestone. With both my husband and I, as well as extended family, all very into Star Wars, when Jake started to show interest this year we're all high fiving each other behind his back. Yes! We could all be kids again through watching him experience this rite of passage through fresh eyes. How neat is that?! With the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story© TM Lucasfilm LTD coming to theaters soon, it’s a great time to...

How to Support Breast Cancer Research

A decade ago I lost my Auntie to breast cancer. It was a devastating loss and one that still affects me to this day. She was my godmother and my mom always said it was meant to be because we were so much alike. This is the woman who introduced me to red lipstick and leopard prints. Need I say more? Every time she came to visit it was like Christmas. We always had the best time and I can still hear her call me be my nickname, Krickin, ever so clearly. So, I'm sure...

The Aldi Little Journey Baby Line

Aldi Little Journey Line

My little guy Max has a HUGE appetite. At only 1 1/2 he is pretty tall and definitely always on the go, typically with a snack in hand to keep him fueled for his next adventure. It's funny how different children can be from one another. His older brother has to be reminded and prodded to eat. Food just isn't his priority. Meanwhile Max, with his big sweet personality, has a genuine love for eating and sharing his food, which is why I was excited to discover and share with you the ALDI Little Journey product...

Do you ever feel like you live on an island? Man-oh-man do I ever. Everyone is always in a different stage of life or situation, and for me having my two little guys, a husband who travels A LOT for work, and no family nearby can be very isolating and lonely. Sure I've got an awesome crew of family and friends in my life. They all just live kind of spread out and far away. And it's hard to make other mom friends, especially when you have to cancel on them often or always show up with...

How to Take Kids Beach Photos

Kid Beach Photos

We all want gorgeous photos of our children, and your summer beach vacation is an ideal setting to get those adorable kid beach photos. The sunsets, sand dunes and waves all scream beautiful photos to be had! But its not always realistic to hire a photographer. It can get expensive or hard to squeeze into the vacation schedule. I typically only do an official family photoshoot once a year and then take my own photos of the kiddos throughout the year. And of course just when I had mastered taking beach photos of Jake, we had...

Not only do Megan and I run a business together, we're life long best friends too which means our kids were automatically required to be friends at birth. Haha! Good thing they love each other as much as we hoped they would! The dual family vacay we took last summer solidified that. Now they're forever wanting to know when they can visit each other next. In fact, just yesterday the lil' lady bean asked if she could go see Megan...
