4th of July, 4th of July!  You know there’s nothing better than a summer holiday, right?  For me, it’s the 4th of July.  It’s my favorite holiday, hands down.  The weather is gorgeous and hot, the pavement is baking, kids sit on the sidewalk eating dripping Popcicles, and fireworks end the day.  It’s the most fun of the whole year, and that’s saying something.   I make my famous American flag cake.  We sometimes run a 4th of July 5k…

Repurpose Your Easter Baskets After the Candy is Gone

children's storage

When Easter is over, as it is about to be, what do you do with all the leftover Easter baskets?  In my house growing up, my mom would stash all 10 Easter baskets back under the stairs, grass and all, to wait it out until the following Easter holiday.  I’m not quite as organized as my mother, maybe because I’m free to wing it with only 2 kids instead of 8, which means each year is different than the next. …

Cutest customizable holiday cards ever

cutest customizable cards

  Guys, the holidays are officially almost upon us.  And for whatever reason (just a guess – mom guilt?) at Christmas time, I get super Type-A obsessive about making sure my holiday cards are finished early and mailed out before the serious crazy sets in.  Life is insane during the holidays, and I really prefer to do tiny little things all year long in anticipation of December being the worst month of my life, in the history of ever.

My husband works random hours…
