Christmas Treat Ideas

Christmas treat ideas that are funny and easy to put together.

Christmas Treats for the Sweet
One of the most stressful parts of the holiday season is cooking up treats for all of our friends, neighbors, and family members. It can get pretty insane some years and our list seems to grow exponentially the older we get. I've also noticed in the past few years that it's getting harder and harder to make my treats look cute and festive because I'm always down to the wire on getting them out the door! So THIS year I decided to reel...

Thanksgiving Tasty Twist

A Thanksgiving Tasty Twist! Holiday recipes that you're family will love.

Who doesn't just love Thanksgiving? All of that yummy food...eating until you want to burst...pulling out those pregnant stretchy pants just like Joey did on that "Friends" episode - just so you can eat that much more. Lol. Okay, maybe we don't take it as seriously as Joey, but Thanksgiving is always memorable at my house. One thing is for certain, you can always count on my mom making an amazing meal. Ever since I have been married, me and the rest of the women...

Family Fun: Candid Photoshoot

How to plan a candid family photo shoot!

A photo says a thousand words and freezes time for just one moment.

When was the last time you had family pictures taken?  At my house it has become a yearly tradition.  Every Fall we capture very special, extremely candid moments.  Some of my favorite photos end up being the ones we weren't even posing for!  How fun would it be to take this idea one step further by creating a family video. That is just what this inspirational blog did (love this)!...

Lookin’ Good: Girls & Curls

Flat Iron "Girls and Curls" Tutorial

Every girl should "go curly" on her birthday and it just so happens that today my lil' Miss McKenna is turning one year older! You should know that whenever a head of hair gets curled at my house I use a...Da-Da-Dun.....FLAT IRON!!! As a hairstylist, it is absolutely my favorite tool of choice. In fact, it's practically the only electric tool that I use aside from the ultimate must-have, a blow-dryer!

The WILD Jungle Safari Date Night

Happy, Happy Columbus Day! Today we are going to be doing our own exploring.  But don't you worry, we won't be going too far from home on this date. Instead, we'll use our surroundings to "explore the Wild Jungle!"

Family Fun: Park Hopping

Family Fun: Park Hopping Idea

Need a fun, in-expensive activity to do with the family this Fall?? Then this is it! I was inspired to create this family fun adventure when we were at my neighborhood park a while back. A few other moms were there with their kids too. One of them gathered up her kids and said, "Come on kids, let's go to the NEXT park." Needless to say, her kids were super antsy to get on with it because our park is not very spectacular. No swings, No monkey bars, Not a whole...
