Every since I can remember I just loved to cook. I never really new how to do too much, just the basics. And when I tried new things I often had some major fails. But for some reason that was the beauty of it to me. Once I started having the kids cooking with me I could see they had a major interest in it too. They are still pretty little so its more for just the experience. But they are getting down the ideas and I am already amazed at how much they have absorbed. There are so many good reasons for both of you to have your kids cooking with you. Any mom has heard this one You’ve probably heard this story before… everyone gets home from a long day and gets into the house. You immediately start working on your dinner plans or are just figuring…

Girls weekend in Chicago! Something I have learned over the last few years is how important it is to take time away and for yourself. So the last few years my sister and I have taken a weekend trip once a year in the fall. Lets be honest we wish we could more often but you know how crazy schedules can get. This year we decided to make it a girls weekend in Chicago! We live in the Detroit area making it about a 4 hour drive. We debated trying to fly but the time just seemed about the same. The road trip there was uneventful except for a few wrong turns hehe. It actually was filled with a lot of working since we are both #bossbabes and had things to take care of so we could go have this weekend 😉 Ok so my sister is much more…

See my full disclosure about affiliates here   A little while back I went for my usual visit to my dentist for a cleaning and checkup. I sometimes have a little bit of sensitivity so I asked them about their thoughts about a new toothbrush – specifically an electric toothbrush. I have been thinking about getting one but didn’t know if it would be a good option for me. For some reason the response I got surprised me… they definitely recommended trying one. The great thing about an electric toothbrush is it does the work and does it properly and doesn’t allow you to brush too hard. So shortly after when I had the opportunity to try the new Smile Brilliant CariPRO I knew it was perfect timing. A little background I have always been…
Our Manhattan Beach Getaway Manhattan Beach Manhattan Beach is the cutest little beach town. I’m a huge fan of going to the beach. But we have never been fans of the over crowded touristy beaches that are lined with hotels and souvenir shops. It’s never been our thing. Well if you want that beach feeling without the tourist twist you need to hit the west coast. Heres a recap of our Manhattan Beach Getaway. Location is the best! Its located only 15 min from LAX… enough said right there. Manhattan Beach is also within proximity of many other places including Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, LA, Santa Monica, Malibu and about an hour drive to Disneyland (here’s a post about our first trip to Disneyland). There was plenty to do just in Manhattan Beach alone though. Obviously go to the beach, lots of little shops, walk along the strand, aquariums, and…
I can’t even explain how excited our kids were to go on our first trip to Disneyland!! When planning our trip we considered many things. First and foremost our kids are 2 and 3.5 so we did not think they would last very long at the park and also they would not be able to do a lot of the bigger rides and things. So considering that we decided we didn’t want to stay at the resort or one nearby. The rest of our trip we spent in Manhattan Beach (read my review of that part here) and did a one day trip to Disney. Overall it worked out great and I would do it that way again. So being this was our first trip to Disneyland I am by no means an expert haha. We did some research before going and had a good game plan. I thought…
