Bath Time Bribes, Faux Fur Outerwear & The Reason for the Season

I solved a massive problem this month. Zelda had taken it upon herself to decide bath time was no longer a thing, which resulted in a serious battle each night. Luckily, I found a little something that allowed me to bribe her into the tub (sometimes it’s a must!). Read below to see what this amazing item is, plus see …

Holiday Crostini for Kids & Adults

It’s officially holiday entertaining season! I absolutely love this time of year because the food, lights and décor make everything feel extra magical. This year when guests pop by, I plan on whipping up holiday crostini four ways – these little toasts are SO good! These may even make an appearance at my parent’s house when …

The Magical Swissotel Santa Suite

Every now and then, life brings us super special moments. These moments create memories that make us feel warm inside (kind of like vacation). My family was lucky enough to have one of these moments earlier this week and our experience in the Santa Suite at the Swissotel is something we will never forget. We will …

Have Yourself a Very Basic Christmas

Everyone has a basic friend in their life. She’s the girl who rocks Uggs with a puffy jacket and a MICHAEL Michael Kors tote slung over her shoulder. She loves Starbucks cold brew, Beyoncé and “will workout for wine”. These friends are a special group and lucky for us, they are really easy to …

How Changing Thanksgiving Changed My Perspective

Happy Holidays! (I can say that now because Thanksgiving is officially over.) As I mentioned last week, we changed our Thanksgiving tradition this year and had our entire Thanksgiving meal catered by Real Urban BBQ. I am happy to report it was one of the best decisions we have ever made around the holidays. There were …

Leftover Thanksgiving Quesadillas

For Thanksgiving we took a nontraditional route and had our meal catered by Real Urban BBQ. It gave us more time together as a family and saved my mom a ton of stress. She was so happy in the days leading up knowing she wouldn't be in the kitchen all day! Even with all the yumminess, leftovers were expected. (Sometimes I think Thanksgiving …

Easy Thanksgiving Appetizers & Side Dishes

We all been there. Sometimes an "Oh Sh*t" moment around the holidays is inescapable, especially when it comes to cooking. If you find yourself in a pinch today, I've got you covered. Always remember -- don't panic! I rounded up a handful of appetizers and side dishes that can be made quickly. (And most of them call for under six ingredients!) I call …

Mini Cranberry Gouda Bites

Last week I watched Zelda fall in love. It wasn’t on the playground or at music class and it didn’t happen on a stroll through the park. The happy event occurred when I tore the cellophane from a block of Gouda cheese. Zelda promptly picked it up, took a bite, and another and another, and then looked at …

Why It’s Okay to Break Holiday Traditions

The holidays are rapidly approaching and with the festivities come our favorite traditions. Whether you bake a special pie with your mom, play games or meet up with high school friends, we all have certain warm and fuzzy things we look forward to doing each year. However, sometimes traditions start to feel forced. We feel like …
