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.

Finding Quality Child Care with Quality Rated!

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of GEEARS: Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students. However, all thoughts are my own.

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.

What’s in a Name? How We Chose Evangeline!

Choosing a name for your child is one of the most pivotal decisions of parenting. Before you even meet your precious babe, or perhaps shortly after your first earth side encounter, you’re tasked with deciding on a name they will carry (and hopefully love) for life.

A quick Google search of baby names will produce thousands of options, along with a plethora of suggested guidelines.

Will your child be named after a family member?

Are you looking for something classic, trendy or hipster?

How popular is the name you like?

What’s the meaning and origin of the name?

What are the options for nicknames?

Does it flow with your last name?

How will you spell it?

Will the pronunciation be difficult for your child or others?

And the list goes on and on and and on!!!

These are some of the things my husband and I took into consideration when naming our girls, including our youngest, Evangeline Margaret.
