These Are the Droids You are Looking For

We usually don’t splurge on souvenirs when we go to Disney. We don’t need all that extra stuff, and those little knick knacks start to add up. The most we usually get is maybe a couple of Disney pins or a Disney sweatshirt because, inevitably, one of us will forget…

Easy Chocolate Fondue

The Case for Fondue I don't like doing big gifts for Valentines day. I'm all about keeping it simple. That said, I do like to do something special. This year I decided to surprise my husband and kids with a chocolate fondue. I love the idea of making fondue as…

Puppy Love: EmBARKing on a Puppy Journey

This past Christmas, Santa surprised our family with a golden retriever puppy. There she was, sweet as can be, all wrapped with a bow under the tree on Christmas morning. Could anything be more magical? Honestly, no, it was one of the best and sweetest surprises ever. It was completely…

Costa Rica: A Family Friendly Adventure

Our family was in need of an adventure.  Spring Break was rapidly approaching and we wanted to try someplace new.  Our kids were 7 and 10 and we were more than ready to travel outside our comfort zone.  We wanted a place that would give us a good amount of…

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Do you get a case of the blues when the weather turns crummy?  I have been known to get a little moody when I go more than a couple days without the sun. Here in the bay area we are officially in the rainy season, and we have been seeing…

Our Charlie Brown Tree

One of our favorite Christmas shows to watch each year is “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”  I love that it’s the simple story of a child trying find the deeper meaning of Christmas while being surrounded by the influx of commercialism.  It isn’t lost on me that going out and buying this little…

Non-Toy Gift Ideas

I feel like my home is bursting at the seams with toys. We seriously have toys hidden in every nook and cranny of our house.  About twice a year we do go through them and try to donate the ones that the kids don't play with anymore.  But no matter…

Staying Sane Through the Holidays

Tis’ the season to be jolly, right?  At least that is what the song says.  Don’t get me wrong,  I love the holiday season.  I usually start counting down the days ‘til Christmas in September.  I love the decorating. I love the shopping. I love the traditions and spending time with family and friends.  I…

Sunday Morning Donuts

A favorite morning treat our family loves making together is homemade donuts.  They are a fun, easy, and sweet way to start the day.  To be honest, our recipe isn't 100 percent homemade.  We actually use a can of Pillsbury Grands Biscuits instead of making our own dough, but our…
