**I have partnered with 7 Sisters Homeschool to share information about their curriculum and resources. All opinions are my own–including that my kids are super dramatic.
One of my favorite things in school were electives. When I chose to homeschool, I have to confess that I was a little concerned about the electives thing. Mini loves dancing and singing and acting and honestly, all things that are quite dramatic so when I saw that 7 Sisters Homeschool offered Drama as part of their curriculum, I may or may not have squealed with joy! I can finally teach Mini (and abc really) how to channel their drama into our curriculum via electives!
Anything made by a Grandma is typically guaranteed to be delicious. My Grandmothers are no longer with us, but my husband still has one of his and she makes the BEST peach cobbler. She may not be from the south where the peaches are always perfect, but she is from the north where Grandma’s cobbler is always perfect!
I’ve partnered with Basic Invites on this sponsored posting. All thoughts are my own.
When was the last time you received a paper invitation to an event, namely a baby shower? I know that I sent them out for Mini’s baby shower and that’s about it. In her baby book, I have a copy of said invitation along with pictures of people celebrating the bump in my belly that eventually became her and she loves to flip through it. We live in the land of virtual now and as I look back at the other baby books I’ve yet to put together, I’m wishing I’d done paper invitations. And after seeing these beautiful ones from Basic Invite, I wish I had these!

You guys can call me Benjamina Buttons because I’m looking younger and younger as I use my Annmarie Skin Care. This year when I was at ShiftCon (looking incredibly tired as I was traveling and conferencing with BC in tow) I met up with the ladies from Annmarie Skin Care and I loved everything they were talking about. I sampled their coconut body oil which is more luxurious than your average coconut oil while chatting away with them.
I partnered with Wellements to share my thoughts and opinions on how their products have helped me with teething.
Teething is literally the worst thing that babies and parents go through until potty training–which is pretty awful as well. But there are 10 things in particular that really grind my gears as it pertains to teething.
It’s that time of year again! Father’s Day is upon us and for most, it can be one of the most mind boggling holidays when it comes to what to get that special father figure in our life. For some reason Mother’s Day seems to be a breeze when it comes to gift giving, but Father’s Day, not so much. This day is all about showing Dad just how much you love and appreciate him and all of the hard work he puts in, but what if he’s one of those guys that has everything?
Kielbasa is a kid favorite dinner staple in my house. Personally, my favorite dinners are meals that everything is available in my pantry. My second favorite meals are one pot meals. Less dishes. That is why this one pot kielbasa dinner is a sure-fire dinner win for everyone!
I have a confession: Pizza is my favorite food. I’m a New Yorker and have high expectations of pizza so I typically go with what I know around Atlanta. Today Mini and I ventured out and tried MOD Pizza in Decatur.
We were originally heading out to grab something from the grocery store and to get our nails done. The line at my new favorite salon was a bit long so we decided to grab some food. Signs I’m raising mini right: pizza is also her favorite food.
Making time for self care is one of those things that’s “on trend” right now but for many of us, it’s a fleeting thought. Last night I had the conversation with a friend and fellow mom about what self care is being touting about on social media. You see people talking about “Just left a 83739 day cruise!!! #SelfCare” or “I just took a 485 mile hike and feel amazing!!! #SelfCare”. Yes, these numbers are inflated but you get what I mean.
Teaching is hard. There are a lot of days when I am thankful that I am not a teacher. Basically it boils down to me not even being able to deal with my own two kids. So how could I deal with a class of 20+ kids?! What I do know is that teachers deserve an awesome gift for the end of the school year. What is better than beer? I know wine related gifts are super popular for teachers these days. However, let’s remember the male teachers who may shy away from the wine and those female teachers who love a good Blue Moon, Angry Orchard or even a Corona while they are floating around the pool.
