Mom Monday {The Bento Lunch box}

0comments

I have to admit I am kind of obsessed with the bento box lunch idea. Piper’s school actually provides all of their food so up until now I have not had to pack her lunch for her. Enter her first field trip. For field trips we pack their lunches, and I suddenly felt a need for a bento box style lunch box. While I did my research I found there were a TON of options. I would say my first choice would be Planet Box. However the price tag steered me in a different direction. The adorable ones from Pottery Barn Kids are on sale right now, and Piper adores purple and unicorns, so it was a win win. Feeding kids like this is a great way to get them to try new things, and a way to provide them with a nice well rounded meal. Give it a try!

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?

Mom Monday {family traditions}

I think it’s really important to develop family traditions. It gives everyone some consistency in a world that is constantly throwing chaos our way. It also creates lasting memories, and it’s fun. Here are a few of ours we do on a weekly basis. What are your family traditions? I would LOVE to hear. Please leave a comment and share your favorites.

In the Kitchen {no bake healthy brownies}

0comments

These brownies are one of my most favorite desserts I have made lately. The best thing about them is that they are healthy. I used raw Cacao powder which has loads of anti-oxidents and fabulous health properties, they are sweetened with dates and pure maple syrup, and you don’t have to cook them!! Brilliant. Easy, healthy, chocolatey, I am sold. The following recipe is adapted from this original recipe from Plant Powered Kitchen. I am dying to get her book Let them Eat Vegan. I have heard fabulous things. no bake no sugar frosted brownies | Wiley Valentine

Out and About {Public 74}

0comments

Hello friends! Back home and ready to get back in the swing of things. We had a great trip to Cape Cod and it was amazing to spend time with family. We arrived home on Saturday so we had Sunday to decompress. If your travels allow I highly recommend this. Anyway we discovered a great new restaurant in San Juan Capistrano (Southern California) on Sunday called Public 74. They have a fabulous beer selection, the cocktails looked amazing, and the food was fantastic and almost all organic. They JUST opened last week so they are still getting settled, but I highly recommend it.

You really must order the opal basil fries. Be warned, the portion is HUGE so be ready to share…but they are amazing.

Fun fact, the kids menu is so great and clever. I hate when I go to a restaurant and the kids menu is kraft mac & cheese, or american cheese slice grilled cheese. They have such great and clever choices for the kids, it was so refreshing. Let me know if you guys check it out! Would love to hear your experience.out-and-about-public-743

Piper is continuing to love her ballet class. She even told me when she grows up she wants to be a ballerina. How adorable is that? Here are a few of my favorite tiny ballerina fashions I have been loving lately. How gorgeous right? It’s surprisingly hard to find fabulous ballerina outfits for the littles. If anyone has a favorite source I would love for you to share with us in the comments!
