How to Separate and Roast Pumpkin Seeds

I am so lucky to live in an area of the world that has the pleasure of experiencing all four seasons throughout the year. It is seriously the best. At the start of EVERY new season, I get super excited and want to declare that whichever one it is, is my absolute favorite season, and at the time, I really believe it. Then fall comes along and COME ON! It’s just THE BEST, right??? There are so many amazing things about fall, and all the pumpkin spice stuff doesn’t even make my top 10. That’s how great fall is, it’s...

Super Sweet Easter Treats

I will start this post by admitting that Easter has never been my favorite holiday. Maybe it’s because growing up we followed the tradition of hunting for our hidden Easter baskets on Easter morning, and I was never able to find mine (DON’T hide my candy!!!). Maybe it’s because when I was 14, I got my wisdom teeth out right before Easter, my face blew up like a chipmunk and I was forbidden from skipping out on Easter mass (seriously). Whatever the reason, in my younger years, Easter was not my favorite. Over time though, my grumpy mood has shifted...

Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Sticks

AHH! Did everybody survive the blizzard?? We got about a foot of snow in my part of Delaware between Friday and Saturday, and I enjoyed every single bit of it! I love love love a good snow storm and I get so disappointed when we go through a whole winter without the grass ever being fully blanketed. It just adds so much excitement to what can sometimes feel like a dreary time of year. I love when there is an impending storm, and it’s all that anybody can talk about. I totally buy in to all the hype, seriously, I...

A Winter ONE-derland 1st Birthday!

Yes, another party post! What can I say, I have TWO winter babies, so we have parties on the brain all winter long!!! As we are nearing my daughter’s 2nd birthday in February, I can’t resist sharing the theme from her first birthday last year, “Winter ONE-derland!” It was such a fun theme to put together and it was actually the party that inspired me to start this blog! Now when you go to the party store, you will not find “winter ONE-derland birthday” stuck in between the Doc McStuffins and Ninja Turtle party decorations. It does take a little...

Happy New Year!

Wow! Another holiday season come and gone! This year was a very busy one, but so so much fun. Christmas and New Year’s should be on a 3 day weekend every year! It was so nice to be able to enjoy the craziness of the holiday, but then to also have the down time afterward to truly soak it in. Most years my husband has to go back to work December 26th, so this year really felt like such a gift! I mentioned in this post that Christmas is absolutely my favorite holiday, but that it is such a busy...

How to Throw a Great New Year’s Eve Party

This year, we are throwing our 11th New Year’s Eve party! I can’t believe we’ve kept it going for this long! Even the year that our son was only 11 days old, and the year that I was 8 months pregnant, we still couldn’t resist having a few friends over to ring in the new year with us! Although it’s been going on for 11 years, this party is definitely not what it used to be. We’re not in our 20’s anymore. At this point in my life I’d (probably) stop one of our friends from streaking down our street...

How to Make Your Elf on the Shelf Poseable

This post contains affiliate links. Are everyone’s homes riddled with elves? Yup, it’s that time of year, Mr. Elf on the Shelf is back in full force! By this point in the internet age, I am sure that everyone is familiar with the little guy. According to “the rules” he is suppose to fly in from the north pole the day after Thanksgiving (or whenever you remember where you packed him), to watch over our little rugrats, and report back to Santa on who has been naughty and who has been nice. Each morning, the kids get to go on...

25 Books till Christmas!

Is anybody trying out the 25 books till Christmas tradition this year? I saw it around Facebook and Pinterest the last few years, and since my almost 5 year old is a HUGE book worm and my almost 2 year old is just starting to get into books, I thought this might be a good year to start the tradition in our house. If you are not familiar, 25 books till Christmas, is another idea in the realm of advent. You wrap up 25 Christmas themed books, and then your children open up one book each day until Christmas day....

Things Are About to Get Crazy…

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year… It is, it totally is and that’s what makes the crazy So Much Harder to accept. Christmas is truly my favorite holiday. I have always thought that, but since having kids, I can really declare it. I love the whole season of Christmas. In fact I wish that Thanksgiving was the first Thursday in November instead of the 4th, because once those trees go up in the mall, I’m so ready, but everybody knows that it’s not socially acceptable to start celebrating Christmas before… blah blah blah. Bring it on! Thanksgiving is...

Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Blondies

I was looking through my photos from last fall to see if there was anything that I made or did that I might want to share here, and I came across this picture of the Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Blondies that I made for my cousin’s “Harvest Housewarming” party last October. I love these because 1. They are peanut butter, and 2. They have Reese’s Pieces, which are not only delicious, but are also a great color assortment for Fall! You can pretty much add Reese’s Pieces to any dessert to make it festive for Autumn! Sprinkle them on the...
