EASTER BASKET GOODIES FOR YOUR LITTLE GIRL

04.06.17

How is Easter already right around the corner? I hope you guys are having a great week! I’ve been so busy since we got back from Florida and we all have a lingering cough that won’t seem to ever leave. And with both of the girls celebrating their birthday’s in April I’m not sure our Easter baskets are going to be big (or even done at all) but if any of you are planning to celebrate I’ve put together a few of my Easter favorites that are all $50 and under (well $52..but close enough!).

  1. The sweetest Easter basket to hold all of the goodies
  2. Who doesn’t love Bunny Grahams?
  3. A little glitter and a headband she can wear all year.
  4. Festive eggs.
  5. The perfect serving plate for her baby carrots and bunny grahams!
  6. A coloring book to keep them busy for 15 minutes 😉
  7. Bunny sheets that I wish I could steal for my own room.
  8. The perfect Sunday dress.
  9. A fun bead activity so you can make each other friendship bracelets.
  10. I know I’m always in need of another sippy cup.
  11. The cutest book about a bunny named Marshmallow.
  12. A bunny of her own!

What are you putting in your Easter baskets?

RECIPE: Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

03.31.17

sweet potato recipe

Today I’m back in Gabi’s kitchen to bring you guys another recipe that’s going to blow you away! Aaron recently became vegetarian so we’ve been looking for meat-free, filling, and protein packed dinners for the whole family to enjoy. It’s definitely a hard task to please all four of us but this was a real crowd pleaser.

This particular recipe is great because you can take away or add based on everyone’s individual preference. For me, I added sour cream and extra avocado and the girls piled a bunch of cheese on top. You really can’t go wrong. Click through for the entire recipe for these delicious Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Cacao Molé Sauce.

# Together We Mother: How My Marriage Has Changed Since Having Kids

03.23.17

together we mother

I’m not even sure how I can tackle this without writing an short novel, but I’m going to give it a go. First, you should know that we had a bit of a whirlwind start. We met, fell in love, got engaged, and got pregnant with Edith, and then married within the first two years of knowing each other. I wouldn’t have it any other way but I’m not sure it’s something I would recommend…  Read More

Sunday Morning Breakfast With Kite Hill

03.21.17

sunday breakfast with Kite Hill

Sundays around here are my favorite. Saturdays usually have us running all over the city for ballet class, playdates, birthday parties, etc.. so we really relish Sunday as our time to just relax at home and take it easy. We usually pick up some bagels, stay in in our PJs all morning long, and try to just focus on being present for each other. This week we switched out our regular cream cheese for Kite Hill, an almond milk plant based alternative and it was a big hit for everyone. Click through to see more pictures and a few yummy bagel recipes.

FRIDAY FIVE

03.17.17

friday five

Oh hey guys! Happy Friday! I feel like things are moving a million miles a minute over here which is great and crazy all at the same time, do you know what I mean? Anyways, I’m ready for the weekend. The forecast is calling for snow and at this point I’m completely over it and trying to convince Aaron to move us to some remote island where I never have to see snow again. So I have zero plans but to stay inside and put the final touches on our trip to Disney! Are there any Disney tips I should know before we go?

Also, I thought I’d try this new thing called Friday Five where I share five things on my mind with you. Maybe it’ll be five of my favorite shoes right now or five articles I’m reading or maybe just five completely random things, but you can always count on it being five. 🙂 So here we go!

Yesterday so many of you commented on my Instagram Stories when I was on my way to the gym at 6:30am saying “wow! that’s early!” and you know what, it really is. And if you know me, you know I like to sleep and need a lot of help getting out of bed in the morning. Besides having my clothes already laid out and ready to go, another thing I do to keep me from falling back asleep is I throw in my headphones before I get out of bed. And in case you want to know what gets my ass out of bed…now you know. 🙂

Five Songs I Play To Get Me Out Of Bed In the Morning 

  1. Ants Marching
  2. Stay
  3. Shake it Off
  4. Everything in it’s Right Place
  5. Green Light

Have a great weekend guys!
