With the cold weather comes the hunt for cute winter gear. And S is insisting he wants to see and play in snow this winter. When I saw these animal scarves by TreMelarance on my Etsy feed this morning, I jumped for joy.

Staying In Bed

This end of daylight savings business has us in a rut. Our little boy has been going to bed at the same time (new time), but has been waking up the same time (old time). That means what used to be a 7:30-8am start of the day has now become in the 6am range. That also means this mama doesn't like it and wants to do something about it. But no matter what I do, he still wakes up at the same time.

Simply Cake-alicious

If you haven't noticed already, I'm a simple clean-look kinda gal. I'm all for colors and details, but if they can be simply stated then they speak volumes. These beautiful cakes designed by Peace of Cake Design demonstrate just that, simple designs that catch everyone's attentions! I love them so much this will be the way to go for every birthday from now on. 

Happy Friday!

Little Red Riding Hood Party

I know that when I post our little guy's birthday parties, it's more appealing for those of you who have boys. So today, I was thinking to myself "If I had a girl, what kind of a birthday party would I want to throw for her?". I've thought about this before, and I've thought about a twist on a Hello Kitty theme or something strawberry related, but my favorite idea is probably the little red riding hood theme. It's because of the colors and the setting.

Advent Calendars

I know it's a little early to think about advent calendars, but then you walk around shopping centers or even home improvement stores and all you see are christmas decorations everywhere, and then you start to get nervous because before you know it, you're running out of time to get your christmas shopping list done! This is the first year I'm thinking about advent calendars. S is close to being five now and fully appreciates and comprehends holidays, and he insists that christmas is his absolute favorite.

Happy Halloween 2014!

There's nothing possibly cooler than my little superhero this Halloween! The first two year's costumes melted our hearts, and then the third year was both cute and epic. So this year, I was knew it would be a little harder to live up to the previous years, but then we dialed it up on the coolness level.

Don't Play With Your Food!

... or do! My favorite kids toys and gear are the food-inspired ones! I mean, honestly, I wouldn't mind carrying that breakfast egg backpack around all day.

Halloween Munchies

This year, we're going to go trick or treating with a few preschool friends. But before we head out, we're having a small potluck so we fill everyone's bellies before knocking from door to door. I'm thinking about making some Halloween-inspired dishes that are both fun to look at and yummy to eat. And as always, I opt for cute Halloween spooks and not the scary and gruesome. Here are some of the things I might be making from around the web:

Adventures of The Bentos

What used to be something I dreaded has now become a fun morning activity, something I enjoy doing quietly on school day mornings when everyone else in the house is still asleep. Yes, that's right! I'm talking about making school bentos for our little guy! Warning: I am far far far from being a bento-making pro. I mean did you see some of the moms out there who make the most intricate bentos in the land? Ones I wouldn't dare eat because they're just too pretty to be eaten?

Micah's 1st Birthday: Maimai-Bear Turns One!

The one year old curse attacked Micah right before his birthday party too! He had a fever on the day-of, but he was a trooper! First birthdays are mainly a celebration of the parents making it as one year parents anyway right? He won't remember that we worked hard to make his birthday party as cute as can be, or that we were screaming when the wind blew the giant balloons into the icing of the cake, or that he was on cloud 9 petting TWO adorable dogs at the same time at his own party. But still, we make the party as cute as can be.
