Party Prep with Peapod

Peapod Review

I quite like to think of myself as a, "hostess with the mostess". You know, one of those amazing people who have parties that are wonderful and who look fabulous and calm while doing so? In my mind, that's who I strive to be. The reality is me running around like wild, crazy person. I'm exhausted just trying to get it all shopped for, prepped and cleaned before the guests arrive. December is a particularly hard month between all of the holidays and having both kids with December birthdays. I'm so sensitive to them having their special day,...

Moana Inspired White Chocolate Oreos

Have you guys seen the new Disney film Moana? I've heard amazing things about it and it's definitely on our holiday vacation to do list. We try to see at least one movie together as as family while the kids are on break and Moana is definitely in the running. Being the Disney nut that I am, I thought it would be fun to do a Moana themed activity before we saw the movie to help get the kids even more pumped up. Considering what time of year it is, cookies made perfect sense! I know...

Christmas Sangria

Christmas Sangria

Never one to let you down with ideas of festive cocktails, this Christmas Sangria is one of my new favorites! I really love sangria but sometimes it feels like it is meant to be solely a summer drink. I typically drink it on a warm summer night. But why must we suffer and miss the deliciousness of a good sangria in the winter months? No more my loves. This year I present to you the Christmas Sangria. Using clementines and pomegranates, as well as a cranberry-apple drink, all of the fresh flavors I love in winter...

The Ultimate Time Saver for Busy Moms

featt

How many times have you needed something from the store, but just didn't have the time to devote to actually going there. I know this busy mama, more often than not, tries to shop late at night or while the kids are at school so I don't have to bring them with me. Anyone who's ever shopped with a four year old who wants everything she sees knows what I'm talking about. That being said, I'm even busier than usual these days. With the holiday season comes a super hectic schedule and I don't really...

Warm Cranberry Citrus Punch

Cranberry Citrus Punch

It's the time of year for hosting friends and family (yes I may be singing Christmas Carols in my head). Sometimes for me, it can feel a little overwhelming to get it all together between cleaning, shopping and preparing all the food. Oh and not to mention as soon as I get something clean there is a mess from my two little monkeys in another room. I still have a long way to go to perfect the art of hosting while having children. But it's still important for me that we have our friends and...

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We have so much to be thankful for this year! And what better way to really enjoy the extra long holiday weekend than to whip up a batch of Cranberry Margarita cocktails and relax with family and friend? Whether that quality time involves telling stories of the past year or playing board games (we played Twister!) this weekend is all about family and kicking off the holiday season. Making this Cranberry Margarita recipe would be a fun way to use up any leftover cranberries laying around the house...
