Okay, so crazy life update: my baby girl is no longer a baby! She’s a toddler! And she does more than just toddle – she walks, runs, climbs – the whole kit and caboodle. AND she loves getting into everything, and I mean EV-ERY-THING. So when I saw a picture on Facebook of a busy board a super creative dad made for his son, I knew I had to make a busy board for my daughter! (more…)
Hey, everybody! Happy Valentine’s Day! This year I decided that in addition to Valentine’s Day, I would be celebrating Galentine’s Day! (more…)

It’s almost #Halloween – my favorite time of year! I love all the beautiful fall colors, and I especially love pumpkins. So why not combine these two things into a DIY pumpkin vase with gorgeous flowers from ProFlowers? (more…)

Since my daughter started transitioning from formula to solids, I’ve been really vigilant about what she eats. I’m all about buying the most natural foods possible for her to try out, and in the process of feeding her this way I’ve been eating a lot healthier too. We love eating local foods, including fruits and vegetables from our local farmer’s market, and Foster Farms® fresh chicken products sold in California, which are locally grown in California. (more…)

I was so excited to receive some pumpkin carving kits from Pumpkin Masters in order to have a pumpkin carving party. I invited my sister and my niece to come over and carve some pumpkins – and we had so much fun! (more…)

Christmas came a little early at our house, when VTech sent us a box of toys for my daughter to “test.” I was so excited to get these toys, because they’re designed to grow with your child. Pretty much all of their toys accommodate a 2-3 year age range (i.e. for ages 9-36 months), and they the needs of your child at each developmental milestone. (more…)
We’ve been experiencing temperatures in the triple digits (Fahrenheit), and while it’s way too hot for us humans, I can’t imagine how miserable it must be wearing a fur coat! So I decided to make my dogs a special frozen dog treat to keep them cool and hydrated in the heat. These frozen homemade dog treats are super easy to make, and you probably have all the ingredients already at home! (more…)
A while back I wrote a post about how to make pickled beets. I love pickled beets. I like eating them plain, but…I had a HUGE jar of them leftover. And you can only eat so many plain pickled beets…am I right? I was inspired to make this beet, goat cheese, and pistachio salad by a restaurant called The Purple Pig. (more…)
Fall is my favorite season for many reasons: Halloween, Thanksgiving, everything pumpkin spice flavor, and of course, football! I really love getting together with my family and friends and watching my favorite football teams play every week. Because I want to spend less time in the kitchen, and more time with my family and friends, these “grown-up” pizza bites are a great dish for football season, and the perfect way to #FallForFlavor.

Hey, everybody! Recently my niece had her 4th birthday, and when I asked my sister what I should get for her she said, “Coloring books and stationary.” So…I was kind of baffled by this. But apparently my niece loves coloring and writing letters. I thought just a plain coloring book and some paper would be such a boring gift, so I decided to make her some pretty DIY crayons. (more…)
