Glamping 101

1comments

Ever since Glamping in my parent’s back yard one summer in Park City, I have been forever a Glamping fan. I really want to take a family camping trip, but I am considering starting with some Glamping in the backyard. Here are some tips to create an amazing experience right in your own backyard!

There are tons of really great Glamping locations. However, don’t let the camping aspect fool you, many can be just as expensive as hotels! I definitely dream of visiting one of these luxe locations one of these days. Here is a great resource to check out, once you are ready to graduate from the backyard!

Mom Monday {DIY Crown Bar}

1comments

For Piper’s 3rd birthday party we had a purple princess party. One of my favorite parts was the DIY crown bar. Inspired by the ever fabulous Bri of Design Love Fest, and her DIY crown post here, I decided to make a station for guests to decorate their own crowns to wear during the princess party. I followed Bri’s directions pretty closely, and purchased some gold poster board (WARNING it was $5/sheet at Hobby Lobby which yielded 5 crowns). I added to those 5 with some pre-cut silver crowns. Then I bought a huge tub of giant gems for around$10, and adhered some double sided tape to each for easy assembly.

These were so much fun, and a great activity for the kids. They double as a party favor as well!

Mom Monday {Breakfast Cupcakes}

I had such a fun time cooking with Piper this weekend I just had to share. I was inspired by this recipe for Apricot Pecan Breakfast bars, to create something that we could have on hand for an easy breakfast. Piper loves anything in cupcake form and recently began helping me cook. It’s such a fun thing for us to do together.

These are great to cook with the kids. I measure things out, then she dumps them in the bowls and stirs everything around. Then, the best part, she gets to lick the spoon! I have such fond memories of doing this with my grandmother. The key is to make something delicious and healthy. These are the perfect breakfast. They have fruits, nuts, antioxidants, oats, and they taste delicious!!

The bananas and dates act as the sweetener, so there is no need to add sugars of any kind!
