DIY Driftwood Christmas Tree Ornament

I went to a cute little beachy themed shop the other day where I found the inspiration for this ornament. The shop is typically costly and out of my range, but I always love to just browse. I came across an ornament that I loved and when I saw the price tag, there was no way I was buying it. They wanted $10.99 for something very similar to this one. It had a couple of small shells on it and it was shellacked with the tiniest amount of gold glitter on it.

Mini Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Pie Bites

When it came to making a quick & easy snack for the family, I knew I wanted to make something simple yet delicious. I got the idea to make mini hand pies and they were a huge hit. We are big fans of Immaculate Baking Co. and have been for quite a while now. We love that their mission is to create wholesome baking products – many of which are certified gluten-free or organic. Purchased our Immaculate Baking Co. products at our local Whole Foods Market. Of course, we used the Product Locator on Immaculate Baking’s website to find which locations near us carry the products we needed for our recipe. We picked up a box of Immaculate Baking Ready to Bake Pie Crusts.

I know most of you may be done with your Christmas decorating, but I wanted to post a DIY just in case you aren’t or maybe if you are looking to update your old stockings. Perhaps you are like me and have more than one tree around the house and would like some new stockings to go with your different themes. Whatever the reason, this is a simple project you are sure to be pleased with.

Mothers of Future Drivers Unite

My daughter and I had a conversation the other day where she fantasize over the idea of being able to drive. She went on for quite some time describing the type of car she wanted, and how it would just have to be in her favorite color. She went on to remark that once she was the driver of her own car that she finally would be able to pick the music that was played on the radio.

Babywearing: Toddler Edition

This is called the “twist”, it’s where she turns her body so much that we have to put her down. We get fooled into thinking she wants to walk graciously beside us until she takes off and runs away. Pretty sure she is pulling some leaves and branches here so I fall over and she can escape.

Do You Need a Giftervention?

I really don’t know how I got to be so lucky. As the holiday season comes around, many of my mom friends are stressing about the lengthy list that they are kids haven’t given them for Christmas. Items upon items, and none of them cheap, I would think that many of them would need a second, if not a third job just to be able to handle the holidays.

Caramel Popcorn with Peanut Brittle Bits Recipe

Around Christmas time every year, my sweet Oma would always make us caramel popcorn. It was a tradition in our family and one I looked forward to every year. When I moved away from home, I would call her and tell her that I missed the popcorn and whenever I would visit, I always ask if she has some.
