DIY Edible Playdough

Mother’s MacGyver things in desperation. This week, Edible Playdough was needed.

I was looking for something fun. Something both Sofia and Stella could connect over, to play together, bearing in mind their 5 year age gap; this can sometimes be extremely tricky. We’re at a point with Stella where Playdough seems perfect but the safety precautions needed to be taken while she plays with it are not always possible. Trying to find some safe, independent play options was how we came up with the idea of Edible Playdough. Was there such a thing? With a quick visit to Pinterest, I realized myself, along with many other’s had a need for safe Playdough. Apparently everyone and their dog knows about it.

DIY Edible Playdough to the rescue! 

Hunting down one I thought would work best for the girls and their sensitive skin, but also easy to make with very little ingredients for my sanity. I found a delicious… I mean super easy edible playdough recipe and got to making our first batch. IT WAS A SUCCESS! 

Made a second batch and filmed a little tutorial (or vlog if you will). Because why not?!
Happy safe playing!

  1. 1 cup icing

The Best Jeans; an unexpected surprise!

This past weekend the stars aligned. I had a chance to go Jeans shopping without any children. Sammy was home, and both girls were under the weather and completely content with snuggling up to an afternoon of Netflix. After the horrible event earlier that week, putting 2 of my favorite pairs of jeans to rest, I had nothing to wear. LITERALLY I slipped into a pair of the best jeans ever (Rockstars, of course) and headed off to find... MORE BEST JEANS EVER! One might think I would've headed straight to Old Navy, because we all know they're the maker of about 90% of the Jeans I own. But not this time. SHOCKER! Okay wait, maybe I did, but the truth of the matter was they … read more...

I cried; can I blame the head cold? {VLOG}

I didn't have anything to share today, and I wasn't about to stage anything because we're not the Kardashians. So instead I went on camera, planning on telling you why I didn't have a vlog for today and things just started to flow. The next thing you know I'm crying on the way to buy new Bath Towels. You guys, I cried! Can I blame the head cold? I can totally blame illness on emotions right?! If not that then Motherhood, I know I can blame that with ease.  Either way, today we got a little real, more real than I even planned. Answering a questions of why I started vlogging is something I maybe should've tackled when I wasn't lacking sleep and getting over a head cold. … read more...

Disneyland’s PhotoPass vs. MaxPass

Apparently the start of the year brings many hopes and dreams for upcoming Family Vacations for many. Over the last few weeks I've been asked so many questions about our Disneyland Vacations over the years I thought I would put a few of the questions into a post. WHY? Because PhotoPass vs. MaxPass is a great questions, that and because Disneyland is INCREDIBLE and they're worthy of breaking down for those who are asking. Disneyland for us, is not a trip that is booked in a whim. Planning months in advance is ideal to make the most of your families vacation. It's why I like to share so many of my Disney Hacks with you, for should I be able to help even but one family make the … read more...

Beating the Winter Blues

  This post is sponsored by Bayer. To make sure these products are right for you, always read and follow the label.   The Winter Blues are totally a thing. I've had them! The days get dark quickly, the temperature drops drastically and my needs of 2 cups of caffeine to survive the day goes to 4. For me, beating the Winter Blues can be something as simple as watching an episode of Friends on Netflix or having a girlfriend over for tea (gotta get those 4 cups in). These small adjustments to my day make a big difference in my mood. I find that the Christmas Holidays are so busy (in a good way) you have very little time to feel much of anything let alone the … read more...

How to not get your baby to sleep! {VLOG}

Likely the worst idea I've had all year (it's a good thing we're only 5-days in), but it's something I had ZERO CONTROL over. You see, Sofia has an art class earlier this week that ran through the middle of Stella's afternoon nap. Sammy was at work and all my other options for help were not available (aka my mama was busy, and my bestie is out of town), so I had no choice but to play the dangerous game of KEEP BABY AWAKE. Click on the play button above, or check it out here on our youtube channel. See how we all did in trying to Keep Stella awake, it was a family affair! Take a moment to LIKE & SUBSCRIBE.

Why I’m Not Making any New Years Resolutions

In past years I've made many RIDICULOUS goals the days leading up to the New Year. From something as simple as drinking more water and using the f-bomb less, in particular during school pick-up conversing with other moms. To something as wild as 90 STRAIGHT DAYS of working out or even crazier cutting out gummy bears and sour keys with my bubble baths. Seriously you guys! I don't drink and yet even I question if I may have had one too many while I made these New Years Resolutions.  You see, New Years Resolutions for someone like myself, someone who must see perfection in everything she does, someone who struggles to cut herself some slack and more-so someone who's idea of … read more...

Christmas; in 2 minutes {vlog}

Clearly one cannot do anything CHRISTMAS in 2 minutes; baking Christmas cookies, Christmas karaoke with Uncle Pete, wrapping Christmas presents, writing Christmas cards... not one of these things can be done in under 2 minutes. BUT thanks to fancy editing software, 3 cups of tea, 2 slices of cheesecake and hours behind the computer I've created for your our Christmas in 2 minutes.  For me, the most magical part of Christmas, is the excitement that builds around Santa and getting to live it through the eyes of Sofia and Stella.  Seriously, Christmas in 2 minutes... of course you have the time!   CHECK IT OUT above or else watch it directly on … read more...
