Clean Kiddo Eats – Part 4

Clean Kiddo Eats – Part 4

Hello everyone!  Happy Friday!  Today is our first official “summer Friday,” so I have both the kids home with me.  The weather is a bit iffy, so we might hang close to home just hanging out (plus I’ve got a list of chores to hopefully accomplish).  Tonight Nathan is bringing home a rented power-buffer so we can start the process of finishing the rest of our basement floor.  Hoping to get the basement 100% DONE before Nathan’s family comes to…

Fun Costco Finds

Fun Costco Finds

Hi everyone.  Happy Friday!  Anyone else as excited for the weekend as I am?  We have decided to simplify a bit this weekend, with only one “main event” each weekend day.  Graham has his last day of soccer tomorrow, which means practice, a game, trophies, and a carnival complete with bounce houses and hot dogs. Sunday will be church followed by brunch at my parents’ house.  Then lots of love to Nathan for Father’s Day.  We are hoping to sneak…

Fun eats – Camping Style

Happy Wednesday everyone!  We are now officially halfway through the week – I still can’t get over how fast the weeks seem to be flying by lately.  We are in the home stretch of school, and luckily things have been pretty laid back for Graham as he finishes up.  We have a busy weekend ahead, which I am already getting excited about.  Yeah for summer! I know I already gave you a detailed rundown on how I prepped for our…

Recent eats – Part 7

Recent eats – Part 7

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!  Who else is super excited for the weekend?  Reagan and I are volunteering at Graham’s field day today, so it’s going to be a busy but fun day.  I’m ready to get the weekend started 🙂  Since I seem to have an obsession with food (is this really a bad thing?) I yet again found tons of meal pics on my phone to share.  So I guess that means it’s time for another edition of my…

Food Prepping – Vacation Style

Food Prepping – Vacation Style

Our family loves vacation – doesn’t everyone?  Whether it’s a skiing vacation, trip to the beach, or camping, we all just enjoy spending uninterrupted quality time together.  That being said, we aren’t really “hotel” people.  We are more “rent a cabin or house” people.  I love this for many reason.  First, you usually get to spread out more, and the adults can have adult time after the kids go to bed.  Also, you can limit the amount of food you…

Recent Eats – Part 6

Happy Memorial Day!  We are currently away camping for the long weekend, not heading back until later today.  I will have a full recap of our camping trip up on the blog later this week.  I’m also planning on dedicating a post to food prepping for a camping trip (or any vacation really).  I hope you guys are enjoying your weekend and the official kick-off to summer.  Wahoo! That being said, it’s time for another edition of my Recent Eats (part…

How our kids’ eating styles have evolved

How our kids’ eating styles have evolved

Food and kids is a hot topic these days.  Everyone seems to be looking for the most nutritious meals, healthiest snacks, best ways to “hide” veggies, tastiest green smoothie recipes, and tips on how to get their kid to be a good eater.  Ever since we introduced solids with Graham, I became one of “those moms.”  I obsessed over the best method for introducing food (veggies first, wait at least 3 days between new foods, etc).  I made my own baby…

Quick and Easy Weeknight Dinner

Quick and Easy Weeknight Dinner

Hello everyone!  How was your weekend?  It seems like May is always such a busy month for us with birthdays, mother’s day celebrations, and just overall “we want to be outside all the time because of the warmer temps.”  Add in spring cleaning and yard work, and it seems like this month always zooms past.  That being said, I wanted to share with you guys a quick and easy weeknight dinner I made last Wednesday.  The weeknights are always the…

Clean Kiddo Meals – Part 3

Clean Kiddo Meals – Part 3

I am really loving this series, and it’s motivating me to step “outside of the box” and choose new things to serve to my kids (part 1 and part 2).  I think it keeps them happy to see new food combinations on their plates.  I also think finding new ways to serve things they may have previously turned their noses up at gives me a better chance of them eating it.  Take yesterday for example.  When Reagan saw me putting…

The best homemade cinnamon rolls

The best homemade cinnamon rolls

I used to be a huge “sweets for breakfast” gal.  I blame my dad.  At the ripe old age of 74, he still eats some type of sweet for breakfast every morning (donut, pastry, pie, etc).  It’s who he is, and he will never change.  When I was younger I remember that Dunkin’ Donuts box sitting on the counter, full of every kind of donut you could imagine – sprinkles, chocolate glazed, jelly-filled.  I remember hearing that distinctive “pop” as…
