Iron-on and Waterproof Labels

Just as soon as we clean out the kiddos’ cubbies at school, it’s time to start thinking about summer camp, and getting our kids’ names on every water bottle and article of clothing they own! I love the iron-on labels and vinyl waterproof labels from Cherry Hill Designs. Angie, the mom behind Cherry Hill, says […]

Friendly "No Solicitor" Decal

I’ve always had a thing against No Soliciting signs.  I consider myself to be a friendly person, and these signs always make me think of grumpy people who turn off their lights and don’t give out candy on Halloween. Yesterday, an aggressive solicitor changed my mind. The guy kept banging on my door and ignoring […]

Kids furniture at Target

I went to target last week and took a little stroll down their furniture aisle to see what was new. I was surprised to see a bunch of very cute kids furniture. The three pieces I put on my mental “me want” list were the striped ottoman, night table, and bucket chair (which looks like […]

The $15 Little Black Summer Dress

This will be my little black dress for summer 2009. I got it today at Old Navy and wore it to a birthday party this afternoon, where I broke it in by getting doused by lots of screaming splashing kids going down a volcano water slide. It’s 100% cotton, very soft, and even with the […]

little people

Remember when the little people we played with as kids looked something like this? I was so happy to come across these little wooden folks at the Goose Grease Undone Etsy shop. Then I saw that she has another shop, Goose Grease, selling painted figures, and I kinda flipped. Yes the little guys cost much […]

Make these cookies.

I read about these cookies on one of my favorite blogs, Salt and Chocolate, today. And I made them this afternoon with my son. They are healthy (no sugar, no butter) and delicious, and actually they taste healthily delicious. Oaty, cinnamony and chocolatey. I used half raisins, half chocolate chips, whole wheat flour, and skipped […]

Rody Max

My daughter got Rody as a birthday present last year from my mother-in-law. She wasn’t quite coordinated enough at the time, as we found out when she kept falling off backward onto the hard floor. So we packed it away and just took it out of storage last week. Now she absolutely LOVES Rody. She […]

fancy peanut butter and jelly sandwiches

We’re having a Mother’s Day Tea in my son’s preschool class on Thursday. I signed up to bring “two small platters of fancy peanut butter and jelly sandwiches”. I’m considering making these, which are technically peanut butter and jelly ice cream sandwiches. I know, I know. It probably doesn’t meet the healthy food requirement, but […]

Great Mother's Day gifts to get for yourself (or your mom)

Remember the cute bags from Henry Road I wrote about a while back? Well, Henry Road is celebrating the first birthday of their store and Mother’s Day by offering 40% all online items from May 1-10. I’m a little nervous about ordering a gift online for my mom, with Mother’s Day being only nine days […]
