Connecting Over a Classic

There are so many times when you will hear adults complain over the amount of time that kids are spending in front of screens. If we are being honest with ourselves, the problem isn’t usually with the kids… it’s with the adults. Kids are sponges. When they see adults spending the majority of their days in front of screens, what do you think the kids are going to want to do? Rather than complaining about the amount of time that kids are spending in front of a screen, its important for the adults to put their own screens away to be the example.

Classic Legos

Over the past 2 1/2 years, I have tried really hard to make time each day to put away my phone and just spend time with my kids. Does it happen every single day? Unfortunately, it does not. BUT I am making the effort to let it happen on a pretty regular basis. That is why I loved the concept of National Day of Unplugging when I heard about it. It is a day where unplugging is literally celebrated! When I was asked to join in on unplugging with LEGO, I just knew I had to join!  [Read more…]

How to Make a Shirt With Many Types of Vinyl: 100 Day of School Shirt

It was the 100 day of school recently and we had to make a shirt with 100 of something on it. When I talked with my kindergartner, she instantly knew she wanted 100 hearts on her shirt! Instead of cutting and gluing 100 hearts on a shirt, I wanted to make a shirt that she could wear again and again… without totally wasting a shirt.

Combating Winter Skin Problems

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.

My skin gets incredibly dry during the winter. I know that this is an issue that a lot of people deal with. My skin is dry all year round, so the extremely dry months are really hard on my skin. I have tried a lot of moisturizers in the past. Some of the issues I have experienced with moisturizers have been that they are too thick, sticky, or they don’t give me the moisture that I need.

That is why I have really enjoyed using the Olay Total Effects Whip! It is helping me combat my winter skin problems. I have been using it for about a month now and my skin is feeling more moisturized than it has felt during the winter months in years past.

Typically, my skin will get really dry on and around my nose, on my smile lines, and on my chin. Ironically, they are places where many people have oily skin issues! My skin will get dry and flaky, making it so my foundation looks terrible over the top! That is what I have experienced for years! But this year has been much different. [Read more…]

Poop Emoji Hairstyle for Crazy Hair Day

If your kids are anything like my daughter, they are probably obsessed with all things emoji! We have emoji stickers, pencils, keychains, etc. They are slowly taking over the house! That is why, when it came time to creating the perfect Crazy Hair Day hairstyle, we knew there was basically only one real option… a POOP EMOJI!

This hairstyle was a huge hit! There wasn’t anyone else in the school with the same hairstyle and she absolutely loved it. I don’t think there is more we could have asked for! I think one of my favorite parts though, was just how easy this hairstyle was to make. We weren’t slaving away, putting hundreds of elastics or braids all over her head. This hairstyle was simple, just the way we like it!

To create your own Poop Emoji hairstyle, you will need… [Read more…]
