a blog about my busy little life as a mom

three months



I recently tried another subscription service, but this one was for the kids.  You enter your child’s gender and age, and they send you a few toys and books in a fun, colorful box.  In our first box, we got a book, a little wooden shoe to teach shoelace tying (my favorite thing from this shipment!), a Skip Hop storage bin, and some hand lotion for me.  I could have done without the lotion- this is a box for them after all, but it does smell pretty good!


The main reason I tried out this subscription service was because someone gave me a coupon for it, and now you can save too, using the link below for 50% off your first box!


I plan to keep this service for a few months to see what other cool little toys we get!

I recently tried Nature Box for the first time and I’m a fan!  With my no-dairy diet, it’s been hard to find snacks I can eat that still taste good.  With Nature Box, it’s as easy as checking a box to select dairy free snacks.  You can opt to let them choose the snacks for you, or select your own.  I chose to select my own.  So far, my favorites are the Big Island Pineapple and the Honey Crunch Crisps (which are already gone!).DSC_0184

I used a coupon to get my first box 50% off (these five snacks cost around $10).  I think I will stick with this subscription service for awhile.  I really enjoyed all the snacks and can’t wait to try new things next month!

If you’re interested in trying Nature Box (and want to save half off your first box!!), use this link.  Hope you love your snacks as much as I do!

valentines day







The amount of snow we have here is getting pretty crazy! We have had one storm after the other and it’s really piling up! Here’s a few pics from our snow day this weekend.








Today Blake, Quinn, and I set out to do some grocery shopping and prepare for her baptism next weekend. Quinn was happy to be along for the ride.

We also stopped in to Five Guys for lunch. Yum! Even without cheese, this was still a delicious burger!

They have a really cool soda machine there too where you can choose flavored sodas of all different kinds or make your own mix. I mixed sprite raspberry and sprite peach. The verdict- probably the best soda I’ve ever had! I may become obsessed!
