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.
Back to school. One of my favorite memories from this time of year is getting to shop the latest styles and pick out my outfits for the first week of school. Of course, I cared from a young age and remember even for preschool being particular about what I wanted to wear. I can already see this trait in my son’s as I pick out their clothes and they say, “No mom, I wanna wear thisssss one!” It’s pretty amusing but I love how clothing is a personal expression of their personality and am excited to see them explore this area of creativity.
I am all about dresses – especially in the summer! There is nothing better than finding a dress that is beautiful and comfortable and that you feel amazing in. Since having kids, I have definitely struggled with what looks and feels best on my body & haven’t come across many brands that really feel like they were made for me and my life. That is, until, I came across this amazing clothing brand – Britt Ryan! I am telling you, their beautiful dresses and tops are so fun, flirty, and the summer collection is all you have ever dreamed of!
Theme parks are our jam. We absolutely love getting the chance to spend the day exploring and watching the kids just have an absolute blast. I have to be honest though. It’s been quite a long time since I’ve been to a theme park that was new to me! I had just as much fun as the boys since I was able to experience LEGOLAND for the first time with them. We didn’t know what to expect. Would it be good for toddlers? Fun for the whole family? Worth the whole day? I can definitely say that we were beyond thrilled with the time we got to spend here so I want to share it with you!
Oh to be a kid! When dressing up like your favorite animal is something people swoon over instead of giving you funny looks! My kids love to embrace their crazy and fun side and are certainly not shy. I love watching their little personalities and the joy that they find in the mundane of life. Being a kid is such a joy & getting to mother them, even more so! I am so excited to share with you an adorable new brand we came across that has clothing I am certain you will NEED for your little closets!
Summer is a blast! Summer is one of the times that absolutely everyone is looking forward to all year long, but once it’s here, are we making the best of it? Kids are out of school – but don’t let their cries of boredom stop you all from having the best summer season yet! 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?
Siblings. It’s truly one of the craziest love-hate relationship that most have. As a mama of two boys only a year and a half apart, I witness this back and forth all day long – and it can be exhausting sometimes, but what I have learned is that there are ways to encourage fair play and sibling bonding throughout that day that can strengthen their relationship and their ability to get along. No matter how close or far apart in age your kiddos are, I am certain you will be able to apply a few of these tips into your daily routine & watch them flourish! I promise, your mama heart will melt watching them bond.
