Win a beautiful custom photo calendar from Minted

Looking for a few more gifts before the holidays? How about a custom photo calendar? In my opinion, custom calendars are a whole lot easier to put together than photo books. Just drop in 12 photos and you’re done. No chance you’ll wind up needing 20 more pages than planned, and it’s a gift that […]

It's not too late to make an advent calendar!

In an effort to pack more protein and nutrition into my kids’ diet, I have been conducting various (failed) experiments in the pancake department. Cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, whole wheat flour and chia seeds all made multiple appearances. Much to my kids’ — and let’s be honest, my husband’s — delight, I finally found a […]

We've Been Booed!

We were snuggled up watching Free Willy Friday night, when there was a scuffling at the door. My husband opened it and announced “We’ve been boo’ed!” He brought our Halloween basket over to the couch, brimming with Annie’s granola bars, homemade chocolate chip cookies, Annie’s Halloween bunnies, Toblerone, Halloween tattoos, pencils, and pretzels — a […]
