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!!

Pleasing Your Pickiest Eaters With Danimals!

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

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!

Finding Quality Child Care with Quality Rated!

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.

Elizabeth Stone

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.
