Awesome Advent Calendars Your Family Will Love!

I have always loved advent calendars. I loved having some sort of Christmas countdown that I could do each day. It made me look forward to each day, rather than just waiting impatiently for the big day to arrive. When I became a mom, that love of advent calendars continued to grow as I watched that same magic unfold with my daughter as she got to discover what was in each day of her countdown. This year, we will probably have about five advent calendars going on at the same time and I love it! I think it will be so fun! Here are some of my favorite advent calendars and DIY advent calendar ideas that I just know your family will love as much as we do!

The Best Songs for Date Night

Music has always been such a special part of our marriage. Back in the day, I used to share snippets of our love story. If you were around for that, you already know that. Dave was a rapper when we met and continued to rap for the first part of our marriage, and I was his merch girl. It was a blast! Although we aren’t the ones in the spotlight anymore, we love sharing music with each other and going to concerts together. That is also why I think it is also fun to have this Best Songs for Date Night playlist.

Little Girl Curly Hair: Bubble Ponytail

Having curly hair was always a source of frustration for me growing up. I have been determined to make sure that my daughters know that having curly hair is actually great! Part of that is reminding my little curly haired girls how many fun things we can do with their hair. I know that this can be a major frustration for both parents and little girls with curly hair. I hope that all of my little girl curly hair ideas can help relieve some of that frustration, help you be able to take better care of those curls, and allow you and your little girl to love that curly hair!

Acanthamoeba: My Eye Eating Parasite

On September 5, 2018 I wore contacts for the last time. What I thought was just a little eye irritation ended up being a real life nightmare. I didn’t know that what I was actually happening in my eye was an eye eating parasite called, Acanthamoeba Keratitis and Herpes virus. While it is rare, I have heard from way too many people who are suffering from this horrible parasite to believe that reports of it being 2 in a million are correct anymore.

Acanthamoeba Parasite from Contacts

What I thought would be a quick break from my contacts, ended up being a nightmare that lasted for 7 month fight to keep my eye from permanent blindness. It was painful, scary, and I don’t wish it on anyone. That’s why I have decided to share my story. Like every part of my story. I want to be a warning flag for anyone who might read this and hasn’t ever experienced the Acanthamoeba parasite. Take care of your eyes. You don’t know what you have until it is almost taken from you entirely. [Read more…]

Amazing Family Halloween Costumes

I grew up going to a church Halloween party that was always a highlight of the season. Everyone got into the Halloween spirit, but one family would steal the show every year with their themed costumes. I knew that when I had a family of my own, I wanted to have a family theme for as long as my kids would participate! As soon as I became a mom, those dreams became a reality. I LOVE family Halloween costumes!

I just love to see what families choose to be together for Halloween. You can definitely tell when the kids have a say and when the choice was mostly made by the parents. No matter who chooses, I love any family who will dress up together! I hope you get some family Halloween costume inspiration! [Read more…]

These bags were so fun and easy to make! To create these bags, you need… [Read more…]

Spiderweb Pumpkins with Vinyl

I think I have made it painfully obvious that I am a huge Halloween fan. I love it! A little thing you probably didn’t know is that when I decorate for Halloween, I refuse to use anything with spiders. I hate spiders so much that I refuse to decorate with them. But I made somewhat of an exception to this rule when I visualized a pumpkin covered in beautiful colored spiderwebs. I made it a reality and I actually really love how they turned out. These spiderweb pumpkins are just made with vinyl, so they are something that anyone could recreate.

Spiderweb Pumpkins

I loved the idea of making one with gorgeous rose gold tones and having another one with black, white, and different shades of gray. They both turned out beautifully. I want to make more! To make these spiderweb pumpkins, I used… [Read more…]

Disney Food Family Costume: Disney Treats Costumes

This week has been so fun! I have finally been able to reveal all of our Disney Treats costumes! Not everyone would choose a Disney food family costume theme but I am grateful that my family did. They were all really great sports about our theme this year and were genuinely excited about it. We love Disneyland food and dressing up as our favorite Disney treats seemed like the perfect fit!

Disney Food Family Costume

The best part of all of these Disney Treats family costumes is that they are all no sew costumes. I am not a fan of sewing, so I avoid it at all costs. Our Disney food family costumes include a Mickey Ice Cream Bar costume, Dole Whip costume, Mickey Waffle costume, and a Disneyland churro costume! [Read more…]

No Sew Churro Costume: Disney Treats Costume

No Disney treats themed costumes would be complete without the infamous Disney churro! This churro costume was a lot of fun to make. This costume was by far the most planning that has had to go into a costume that I have made but it was worth it! It turned out exactly like I had planned. It didn’t require any major technical skills, just random supplies to come together to create this sugary goodness that is a Disneyland churro!

Disney Churro Costume

The great thing about this costume too is that unlike a few other renditions out there on the internet, this costume is easy to wear and can easily be removed, where it is made up of three major pieces. To create this churro costume, you need… [Read more…]
