One of my goals as a mama is to fuel my kids sense of adventure and love for the world. I think that this can be as big as taking them on vacations to show them new people and places and as small as choosing foods and snacks that properly nourish their growing bodies to withstand a day of exploration in your own backyard. All of us can find ways to inspire a greater sense of discovery in our kids. Bring them to a new park. Teach them some challenging words. Give them a new snack to try. I have always said, the love of adventure starts at home! Anyone can cultivate it, you just have to be open to trying & trust me, your kids will thank you for it!
If you came here thinking I was going to tell you a bunch of awesome recipes and great ideas for making your kid’s lunches, then you obviously haven’t been around here too often. 🙂 I am a self proclaimed bad cook, but you know what, it is okay & I own it. I am able to own it because I have found so many options that make this area SO. MUCH. EASIER. in my life and that is why I get so excited to share them with you. If you are a busy mama with no time (or will) to cook your kiddos meals, then I have exactly what you need! Coming at you is the revolutionary food subscription delivery service that is geared towards kids!
I’m sure every mom can feel me on this one. Kids want JUICE & they usually want a lot of it. It’s important to me that throughout their super picky phases and their love of all things sugary that they still get the good stuff that they need. Sometimes that involves trickery, but sometimes a new product comes to the market that solves one of our problems perfectly. This past week we tried Welch’s 100% Juice with Coconut Water and I’m so happy about this discovery. Not only do I not feel the need to water the juice down, but it actually is made with coconut water (which is awesome itself) and has naturally 30% less sugar.
It’s back to school season & being out and about shopping brings back all the memories of when I was in school! This time of year can be exciting, hard, bittersweet, or a combination of them all! Although my kids aren’t heading to school, I am still excited about all the new brands and fun foods that are perfect for any busy family to pack in lunch boxes, diaper bags, and more! The perfect snacks for during and after school and activities? I’ve got you covered!
I could eat pizza every night. I know, I know. Balance. It’s what I tell myself. But there is absolutely no denying that pizza is a staple in our family dinner diet – because who can stay away from a delicious pizza pie for too long? There are so many reasons why family pizza night is one of our favorite nights of the month (or sometimes week!) but it’s gotten even better as of late.

Each and every day should have an element of adventure, excitement, and inspiration. I truly believe that these things can be found and created no matter what you are doing, where you are, or what your life currently looks like. Making time for adventure may be easier than you have thought – but just like anything, you have to want to find it in order to experience it! My family and I are big believers in making family adventures very real in our lives and you can break away from the mundane and do it too!
I love OREOS.

I want to share with you some ways to make the best of each day that you can as a family this year. This summer is bound to be memorable & super sweet! Are you with me?
