My good friend, Jessica, is the queen of the outdoors. She is a high adventure enthusiast, blogger, mom of 3, crafter, still finds time to garden, and is a great cook! AND, her kids are always active! So I had to ask her. How did she accomplish all those things, and yet still maintain her sanity?! Especially since we all know simply taking care...

If you know me at all, it's no secret that I love homemade chocolate chip cookies. My friends get cookies for pretty much every event in their lives. Sorry guys. Maybe someday I'll make you something else. Why do I make cookies so often? #1. Difficuly: EASY. #2. Time: 20 minutes. #3: They're DELICIOUS. There are, of course, a lot of good...

Much to my dismay (and my two-year old's delight) we're still waist deep in snow here in Colorado. My little girl could spend all day in the snow if we...

A few days ago my small daughter woke up in so much pain, and she was holding her mouth. She barely let us touch it, but she finally let us look, we saw an ugly canker sore right in between her gums and her lip. :( She was just plain miserable. She didn't want to eat anything or do anything. I've had canker sores before, so I know how much those...

If you were to come over to my home and see my kitchen, most likely this fridge would be the first thing to greet you. Not necessarily anything wrong with it. A typical messy, chaotic fridge. (Ok, so maybe this messy isn't typical?) But it doesn't exactly convey the feeling I want to create in my home. I decided it could use a little TLC....

I've received so many emails asking me how I made the backdrop for my little girl's shabby chic 3rd birthday party, I decided to throw a quick tutorial together to show you how.  It's so simple, after I show you you're going to look at me like, "that's it?" :) Supplies needed: Coordinating paper (Cardstock is harder to fold, so I just used...
