    Family Themed Halloween Costume Ideas

    I have always loved dressing up for Halloween. Before kiddos, I would dress up to pass out candy and tell my students to stop by to see what costume it would be. (They of course loved it!!) It’s just so fun, and I’ve passed the fun on to my family! Our oldest is getting to the age where she wants to be involved in the planning with me. It’s family fun and bonding… win win!! When picking a theme I tend to either go with something my kiddos like or something that would work well for our time in life. For example, when I was pregnant I used my belly…

    Summer Bucket List

    This summer is the first summer I can actually ask my 4 year old daughter what SHE wants to do. So, I thought that making a summer bucket list would be fun to do!

I seriously make lists for anything and everything. Having a list is a way to help me make sure everything that I need or want to do gets done… and I feel AHHHMAZING every time I…

My person .. my Michelle .. she totally and utterly gets me… and has ZERO judgement for anything about me. She accepts me for who I am and knows my deepest, darkest secrets. We met in high school, and became extremely close in college. As we…

    Summer Fun Schedule

    I’m not sure about anyone else, but I am the type of person that thrives on schedules and plans. I’ve noticed if I don’t list out things I want to get done, I either am so lazy nothing gets done or I totally forget about it! That’s why I love schedules! Maybe it’s the teacher in me … I loved having a schedule every day with my students. I made a fall schedule for my 2 and 4 year old this past year, so I thought I’d make a summer one too. I LOVE themes, so I figured out some fun ones to go along with the days of the…
