Baby Shower Feature

This baby shower isn't one of my typical posts filled with tutorials and recipes to create a picture perfect party.  My friend Amy asked if I could help her with a baby shower she wanted to throw for a mutual friend.  Having never hosted a baby shower (neither one of us), she planned with a Pinterest board filled with pretty little pink ideas.  Pink tulle, tutus, roses, shabby chic...oh, baby!

It's back-to-school already.  One more day of organizing new school supplies, trying on new school outfits, getting sports physicals and haircuts before the big day tomorrow.  Oh where, oh where did the summer go?!  Tonight is back-to-school night to load the lockers and be ready to go tomorrow morning.

Cookie Decorating Made Easy with Ziploc®

 It's almost back-to-school for everyone around here, but not before a couple more weeks playing outside and soaking up summer.  Beach balls and watermelon slices are the essence of summer, aren't they?  During a day filled with outdoor activity including stand-up paddle boarding and fishing. we set up a cookie decorating table for 10 kiddos to take a break from the sun and come inside for a tasty little craft.  It's no secret that I love Ziploc® brand bags with easy Open Tabs the most for cookie decorating- especially decorating cookies with kids.  In fact, here is a link to a search for Ziploc® brand on WorthPinning.

Meet the "Descendants" and Disney's Villains

Behind every good Disney movie, is an even better villain!   You know, the character you love to dislike.  Think Maleficent, Jafar, Cruella De Vil, The Evil Queen from Snow White.  With the release of the new Disney original movie Descendants this Friday at 8pm EST on the Disney Channel, we thought we'd spend our weekend getting (re)acquainted with Jafar from Aladdin.

"How do you do it all?"  It's a question I hear often as I'm running around from one activity to the next.  My days are filled with strenuous activity and adventure as Activities Director of a private club in the Colorado Rockies.  I am on the go from sun up to sun down most days and sometimes I'm not even sure how I get through the day with enough time to eat, sleep and repeat it all the next day.  I need a quick grab and go solution to keep my energy up, sugar down and carbs low.

 If I've learned anything as a mom, it's that kids love eating things off of a stick.  For this backyard picnic, we discussed what we'd like to kabob.  Here's what we came up with:  Tyson® Any'Tizers®, caprese salad, fruit and s'mores.  Start-to-finish, this picnic was made just by kids, for kids.  Come check out the steps!

Sending Smiles with Hallmark Cards Starting at 47cents!

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SendSmiles #CollectiveBias
As a kid, we'd (me + my twin sister)show up to birthday parties with a present wrapped in beautiful paper with a gorgeous bow.  As the birthday girl/boy would open their gift, we'd explain, "There isn't a card...it's from us."  Even though my mom owned a gift shop and sold greeting cards, we were convinced we didn't need a card attached to the gift...a card was just an added expense.  True when you have 6 kids invited to birthday parties all of the time, and true when you watch kids toss the card to the side in .2 seconds to get to the gift.  Isn't it interesting, that as we get older, the sentiment of the card begins to hold more value than the gift?
