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!!

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!
I always appreciate gifts like jewelry, flowers, and food (definitely food) for Mother’s Day, but there’s another kind of gift that truly leaves me swooning. It’s the kind of gift that’s practical, and takes a time-consuming task off this busy mama’s plate.
Something like having a clean house!!
For the first time ever, we had our house professionally cleaned recently by Kori Powell of Fresh CleaningServices, and it was a game changer!!! So much so that I’m going to tell you a little bit about my experience with Kori and her wonderful company, and offer a major giveaway just in time for Mother’s Day!

Making the decision to have a child – it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

As a mom of 3, I have recalled this quote more times than I can count. It embodies so much of motherhood and puts to words what I often feel. As parents (or legal guardians), we are responsible for our precious, precious children, but sometimes, whether out of choice or necessity, we have to entrust someone else with their care.
Regardless of circumstances it’s not easy to do so. No one else can be mama but for those seeking child care there’s an incredibly reliable resource in Quality Rated.
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. ~ 3 John 1:4 (NIV)
My oldest daughter loves reading and it makes me incredibly happy to see her dive into book after book. She reminds me of myself at that age and her interest in more complex reading materials and chapter books continues to expand.
With this is mind, my husband and I felt it was time to give her an age-appropriate Bible to accompany the children’s versions we already have.
