Order meals at home with Plated!

Before I get to my review of Plated and their excellent meal delivery service, I have a confession. I’m super embarrassed about this, but somehow, this post completely fell through the cracks and I’m just now getting around to sharing this with you….um, a year and a half after I agreed to review this product!!! WHAT?! That’s ridiculous, and my many many apologies to the company. I could have easily let this one slide, because I’m never obligated to write {Read More}

Crocheted Booties Giveaway (Etsy Shop Spotlight)

UPDATE: This giveaway is CLOSED   While I was still pregnant with little Margo Blu, I was asked to check out a seriously adorable Etsy shop, Simply Crafting Away, to possibly review a pair of their crochet baby booties.

A Mommy Share: My 2 year old loves Dot Art!

Sweet Lucy Jack {Giveaway!}

Children’s leggings. Who doesn’t love a super cute pair, right? They’re all kinds of trendy right now. Everywhere  I turn, I see a hot new print, pattern and style. The bummer is that so many really creative companies and Etsy shops are selling them for an arm and a leg. Really? They’re darling and all but they are just leggings that my almost 2 year old is just going to scuff up and wear out in no time. I can’t {Read More}

Temporarily Vegans {Cleanse Week 1}

I’m actually at the end of my second week of the cleanse as I post this. Are any of  you surprised that I’m a week behind schedule with these posts? Didn’t think so, and neither am I. So in case you missed it, I’m temporarily a vegan for the sake of a 30 day cleanse which was co-created by OhDearDrea (love her). You can bring yourself up to speed with my decision to dive right into this challenge by reading {Read More}
