Spring Style for the Family

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sponsored by Payless ShoeSource. All opinions are 100% mine.

This post is sponsored by Payless ShoeSource. All thoughts and opinions are my own. When I was growing up, I would get a new Easter outfit to wear each year. It was something I looked forward to every year. I knew that I wanted to continue that tradition for my own family and it has quickly become a favorite part of each year! I always am sure to shop smart and get items that we can wear all Spring season.

These Shoes Were Made for Walking, Literally!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Surprize by Stride Rite. All opinions are 100% mine.

Zoey has been able to walk for about a month now, but it wasn’t until the last week that she has decided to walk everywhere! Now her busy little feet don’t stop moving! With the second child, she is constantly wearing hand-me-downs from her older sister, but the shoes that her older sister wore at this stage of her life were totally trashed! New walkers want to do nothing but walk and they are actually pretty hard on their little shoes, especially if they aren’t very well made. Thankfully, I have learned over the years what brands of shoes I can count on.

With as much walking as she does and the amount of different terrain that she seems to venture in, I thought it was important to get her some quality shoes. [Read more…]

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.

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…]

Minnie Mouse Hair Clip and Disneyland GIVEAWAY

Yes, you read that correctly. Somebody is going to win a Southern California trip! All of the giveaway info is at the bottom of this post!

When you have a daughter who is as Minnie Mouse obsessed as I do, you have to think of every possible Minnie Mouse themed piece of clothing and accessory that you can make because she just can’t have enough! One day, I was doing her hair and I watched as she carefully chose which bow to wear. It hit me that we could totally make her her own Minnie Mouse inspired bow that would have her feeling like she was wearing Minnie ears any day, without feeling like she is wearing a dress up.

Custom Willy Wonka Children’s Book

This post was sponsored by Wonderbly. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

We absolutely love Roald Dahl books! Several years ago, we bought a full set of his books and have been reading them one at a time. The very first book that we read was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Soon our obsession with all things Wonka began. That is why I was thrilled when I learned that I could get a custom Willy Wonka book for our family!

Disney Pixar COCO Coloring Pages

COCO Coloring Pages

I always look forward to seeing what magic Disney Pixar will create with their movies. When I first started seeing previews for COCO, I was honestly a little hesitant. I wasn’t sure how a movie about dead people would be for kids. I had faith that Disney Pixar would turn it into something heartwarming and that it would be loved just as much as every one of their movies has been. When we went to a movie recently, I saw a new trailer for COCO and I knew that I my suspicions were correct in that it would be a heartwarming film that my family would enjoy. [Read more…]
