Black Friday: Love It or Hate It?

Black Friday used to be a somewhat popular shopping day where people would get up early to shop with family. Early, as in 5am. Now, Black Friday has become something that seems somewhat out of control. Because Black Friday seems to come earlier and earlier each year, the controversy surrounding it and how far stores […]

7 Ready-To-Go Thanksgiving Activities For Kids

I’m hosting my first Thanksgiving this year. GULP! My parents usually host, but they’re in the midst of a remodel–new kitchen, dining room, and living room.

Instead of a red butt, it’s butt was light pink. And the weirdest part of all–no tail, but that doesn’t slow it down! […]

That Time I Dropped Off My Baby at Daycare and Didn’t Cry

It took 10 weeks and 5 days after my daughter’s birth to get to D-Day. Two-and-a-half months of perfect days and perfectly imperfect nights, snuggling, cooing, feeling the sunshine on our skin and the coziness under our blankets. Getting to know each other.
