Glitter Friendship Bracelets

Oh, our little Cora. She just turned four at the end of September and it’s been such a joy to watch her learn and grow. Our neighborhood is filled with little girls, and they play together whenever they have the chance. Around here we do a lot of coloring, dressing up and pretend play. We have wands and tiaras and lots and lots of costume jewelry.  In addition to all of the “garb,” Cora has fallen in love with Little Charmers {Read More}

Tom Turkey Cupcakes

Oh my goodness! How is it November already?! This year has been flying by WAY too fast. I’m starting to think about Thanksgiving – and I’m beginning to stress a little about Christmas. When the holidays approach, I often get a “how am I going to get everything done” feeling before I really even know what I actually need to get done. LOL What a weirdo, right?  Like most years, I’ve made a vow to try and get started a little earlier {Read More}

Must-Have Boots For Fall

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Payless. All opinions are 100% mine. I took a trip to Las Vegas a couple weeks ago for a conference for work. Before we had kids, my husband and I would frequent Vegas at least twice a year, and stay for at least a week each and every time. I love Las Vegas because of the nightlife, the lights, the shows, the energy, the food. . .and the shopping. While {Read More}

Polar Bear Cookie Treats

This post has been sponsored by Airheads. All thoughts and opinions are my own.   I may be getting a bit ahead of myself with these Polar Bear Cookie Treats, but let me explain.

When we finally make it to Halloween, I’m a bit exhausted, but I still want to make the {Read More}

Why is it when fall rolls around I start thinking about cookies, and cakes, and cupcakes. . .well, all baked goods, really? Maybe it’s because the weather is cooling off enough to use the oven again or maybe it’s because I need to start preparing for my winter hibernation. My neighbors tell me I hibernate in winter and they don’t see me again until the spring. Truth? Truth.  It’s about this time of year I start preparing the house for {Read More}
