As a mom, I am always looking for ways to get things done faster so that I can spend more time being with my husband and kids. A quick foil-wrapped fish dinner and some sides and dinner is made easy allowing us more time to enjoy each other’s company as we eat together. Join us at our table for 4 ways to connect with your family around the dinner table.
Being that this is my second child, it is really easy to be more lax about things that you were so adamant about with the first child. In an effort to make Hendrix’s arrival just as special as his big sister’s, I sat down this weekend and crafted a baby hospital door wreath as unique as his name.
Currently I am “hunkered down” in my house in Houston as hurricane Harvey makes his way though the Gulf Coast. All is well and I am even afforded some time to get blogging done (thank God for electricity!) I have been wanting to make my two year old daughter Camilla more a part of the preparations for her baby brother’s arrival in 5 weeks. I thought it would be a great idea for her to make some artwork for his room.
It was important to Cameron and I to do something fun with Cami this summer because it was going to be our last real opportunity for it to be our little family of three. This weekend and throughout the 4th of July week we are headed to South Padre Island and I am thrilled to be spending time with the family on the beach. I am preparing for our 6 hour drive with these 7 super easy toddler-friendly DIY road trip activities to keep Cami’s hands and mind busy.
Now that we know the two teams competing for the whole enchilada I feel like I can really get into the spirit of the Big Game. Many of you know that I have been preparing for this game by offering up some fantastic recipes and cocktails to serve at your watch party. While some of these recipes are delicious, ooey gooey, and down right cute, they may leave out some of your more health conscience guest who my be holding tight to their New Year’s resolution diets! With today’s recipe I decided to switch to something a bit lighter without sacrificing flavor and sticking to the Big Game theme.
