Earth Day Festival – The Ecology Center


We spent our Saturday at The Ecology Center, one of my favorite spots in Orange County. They were having an Earth Day Festival which was so much fun. We fed the chickens, made teepees, block printed, ate acai bowls and free Chipotle, listened to live music, made terrariums, planted squash seeds to take home, among lots of other things. We had a blast. Here are a few photos from the day. If you are local to southern California check out their events page, they have a ton of really cool activities for adults and kids and families. This is not a sponsored post, I am just a huge fan of The Ecology Center and all they do.


Mom Monday {Steal-worthy Kids Party Ideas}


As Piper’s 5th birthday approaches I find myself searching for fun new ideas for her party. Here are a few that caught my eye that are completely steal-worthy for your own child’s party!


Mom Monday {Cinderella Viewing Party}


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 {candy-less valentine ideas}


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!

I stumbled upon Sarah Schneider’s blog and I was instantly smitten. She had me at creating this fabulous Glamping birthday party for her daughter where all the moms and daughters camped out in this fabulous tent she got from Belgium…are you hooked yet?


If that wasn’t enough check out her collaboration with Anthropologie remodeling her airstream she named Wandering Star…sigh…
