Mom Monday {Pressed Juicery Freeze}

0comments

A few weekends ago I discovered Pressed Juicery Freeze, and I am madly in love. I have always had a love for frozen yogurt, but had an internal battle knowing all the yucky ingredients it contains. Pressed Freeze is the answer to my battle. They literally freeze their cold pressed juices and add nothing!! The toppings do not dissappoint, think chocolate sauce made of raw cacao, coconut oil and honey. Or drizzle almond butter and sprinkle shredded coconut and fresh raspberries on top…I mean come on! It’s such a fun, guiltless treat and the perfect way to share a treat with your little ones. I am seriously hooked!

Mom Monday {Cinderella Viewing Party}

0comments

Well the day finally arrived to have Piper’s Cinderella viewing party. We invited 3 of her friends to join us and each girl received a goodie bag. The goodie bags held pipe cleaner crowns we made, tutus that my mom made for each girl, little cards with a movie quote, and homemade gummy candies I made. (recipe coming soon). The girls had such a great time and it was such a fun way to see the movie!

Mom Monday {reading 3 fun ways}

1comments

I took Piper to a bookstore to hang out for the first time. This has always been one of my favorite activities since I was a child. I browse the aisles, gather a pile of books, seek out a private corner and devour all the books. I do the same thing at the library. Piper just loved doing this with me, which was so much fun! It’s a great way to encourage reading with your kids. Another fun way to read is to take a book with you and read at a park. What ways do you read with your kids? I would love to hear! Happy Mom Monday friends.

Mom Monday {candy-less valentine ideas}

0comments

It’s that time of year again, when you send your child to school with a clever valentine. I love these ideas because they are candy-less and you can pick the items up at the grocery store or Target. Plus they are so adorable! First up, package up a cutie with a tag or sticker that says “You’re a cutie”! Love that one. Pick up some little vials or bottles of bubbles and use the line “You blow me away”. Grab a bag of underwater plastic toys and add a tag that says “I SEA you are a great friend”. I love these little mazes with the line “You aMAZE me”. And lastly use plastic dinosaurs with the line “You are DINOmite”. Hope these inspire you guys for this years valentines. Have fun with it!

Mom Monday {Food Quick Tip #101}

0comments

I get asked A LOT for tips on how to get your kids to eat their food. So here is a new series I am starting. Quick, easy tips that will get your kids excited about the healthy food you feed them. First up, my secret weapon = Frozen Organic Blueberries. Mix these in plain yogurt, rather then giving them sugar filled flavored yogurts. The yogurt turns purple as you mix it around and makes for a fun and healthy snack or breakfast. Have you tried getting your kids to drink non-flavored almond milk, with no success? Stir in some frozen blueberries, and you have all natural purple milk! Who doesn’t want to drink purple milk right!? Good luck!
