Donuts with Dad and a Fizzy Fall Treat!

This post is sponsored by Sparkling ICE but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Saturday’s are for family and we love spending time together. Few things make my heart burst more than seeing my husband dote on our children, and they love having daddy/daughter time with him.

The weekdays have seemed especially hectic and rushed lately, so we decided to enjoy the rarity of a crisp fall afternoon (it’s hot in Georgia!), and set-up ‘donuts with dad’ in our backyard!

Taco Bout a Birthday Cake with AGM Bakery!

When I was pregnant with Evie my sweet friends and family threw me a “Rainbow Baby Fiesta” baby shower. It was colorful and fun, and we munched on my favorite Mexican food.

When it came time to plan Evie’s first birthday I thought it would be great to somehow connect that special day with this one, so I decided on “Let’s Taco Bout A Party” as a theme!

I knew it had lots of potential for cuteness and decor, but more than anything I wanted to make sure we had plenty of delicious food. We had tacos (duh,lol), but I also wanted a show-stopping cake that would tie in beautifully with the theme.

We partnered with AGM Bakery for our cake needs and they did not disappoint!!

A Back-to-School Incentive with 3M & Fandango!

This post is sponsored by 3M but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

As the summer winds down I like looking back at some of our more memorable moments. It wasn’t all fun and games, and in fact, I struggled quite a bit with my own patience and the constant bickering between my girls. However, the sweetest things happened when we were all together and I am going to miss having them home. At least some days. 😉

I have one child who is very nervous to start school for the first time, so I’ve been trying to think of ways to make the transition as smooth as possible.

One of our favorite traditions was having a movie night so I’ve promised to continue that throughout the school year as well. They love movies like their mama, and it gives them something to look forward to. We can cuddle up on the couch together, or, thanks to 3M we can treat ourselves to a movie in the theater!

Pleasing Your Pickiest Eaters With Danimals!

It’s the end of summer vacation and I find myself once again asking, “where did the time go?” These months seem to fly by faster and faster with each passing year, but for me there is one distinct difference that sets this upcoming school year apart.

Instead of one child in school full-time, I’ll have two! Woohoo!!

My sweet Lily is going to be in Pre-K, right across the hall from her big sissy’s 2nd grade class!

We have some nerves as well as excitement over here, but as I plan for us to get back into a solid routine, the question of school lunch always comes into play.

Fun Alternatives to Screen Time With Unique Gifts From Wicked Uncle

This post is sponsored by Wicked Uncle but all views and opinions are honest and my own.

My goals for the summer were simple. I wanted my girls to have a lot of fun and I didn’t want to lose my mind in the process. Lol. This meant keeping them very busy (too busy for the constant bickering), and being flexible in ways I’m typically more strict about during the school year. One example was my decision to loosen the reigns a bit when it came to screen time.

We’ve always allowed time for television or tablets, but things were far less regimented over the last few months. As the school year begun I knew I needed to make some adjustments, and limiting their viewing during the week was initially a struggle. 

They asked about their devices constantly and I was tempted to give in (again, to avoid that whole losing my mind thing), until they each received gifts from Wicked Uncle!
