Trader Joe’s is definitely one of my favorite grocery stores. They have lots of great products at great prices. Plus it’s a good one to go to when you have the kids in tow because they have the cute little baskets and give stickers and suckers at checkout. Everyone is happy! Sharing my recent Trader Joe’s haul of some of my favorites and a few new finds. If your crew is anything like mine they get a little restless having to run errands with me. The best part about taking them to Trader Joe’s with me aside from them getting treats at check out is that the store is not so oversized that it’s a huge commitment when you are there. We are in and out pretty quick which is a win for all of us. Trader Joe’s Haul Here are some of my top favorites from this Trader…
A couple weeks ago my little Lily turned 3! We love having get togethers and parties at our house and Lily really wanted something special this year. Having a party is so much fun but sometimes all the details can get away from me and theres always something I forget. Of course that leaves for a frantic last minute trip to the store which just causes more craziness on party day! So when I had the opportunity to work with Sprinkles and Confetti to create a custom party box for our princess party I was beyond excited. *This is a sponsored post. Sprinkles and confetti supplied party supplies in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own Ordering the party box The process was really fun and EASY! They have many pre made party boxes to choose from or you can do a custom box – which…
If you read my focuses for 2019 you will have noticed that one of them was to start making changes to my life and home that are healthier for my family. I feel that I already do many things that are good for us and our environment but I believe the goal is to constantly be trying to improve and make changes for the better. The first healthy home swap I wanted to make was to switch to using wool dryer balls. I have wanted to this for a long time now! When I found Friendsheep I knew this was the way to go. Friendsheep provided me this product for my honest review. All opinions are my own.  Wool Dryer Balls Making the switch to wool dryer balls is a great healthy home swap for many reasons. First and foremost you are not using and throwing away dryer sheets every…
Ever met anyone who always gets red in the face? Well if you haven’t, now you have because that is me.

Getting out and having a date night is so much fun for us! I really am happy to just go out and do something together. But sometimes its nice to break things up and come up with some date ideas that are more than just going out to dinner and a drink.

Date Ideas While there are many different date ideas you can try out these are ones that are my favorites and tried and true. Try one of them or put your own spin on them. In the end its about having fun! Plan an activity It could be something as simple as going for a hike or your favorite sport together. Things are always more fun when you are being…

Looking forward into 2019 for me means to take a quick look back on this last year. If I had to label a theme for last year it would be growth. It was a big year of growth for me in many ways. I really have pushed myself passed my comfort zone with starting my blog. Anyone who is close to me knows I am naturally a very shy person and it took a lot for me to move past it to put myself out there and I still have to push myself to continue to do so. It was also a year of growth for our family as our kids had a lot of new experiences including their first big vacation and plane ride and learning to snowboard. We also had our first year in our new house and are still continuing the renovation project! After a quick…

A few weeks ago my husband had a work conference in San Francisco. Since our schedules can be kind of limited for traveling we decided to make a quick trip of it. So I thought I would give a recap of things to do in San Francisco when you’re there for a weekend. Things to do in San Francisco Riding a Cable Car This is just one of those things you have to check off your list of things to do in San Francisco! We rode the cable car from Powell and Market where it starts and took it to Fisherman’s Wharf where the last stop was. There is a ticket booth right there to purchase whatever ticket you may need. There are a few different routes and stops so check out where you want to go and plan around it. I will say we went on a Saturday morning…
