Paint-Sation Easel by Goliath

We love to Paint and the Paint-Sation Easel by Goliath is one of our new favorite easels since we can bring it on the go.

 

My daughters had so much fun painting and I loved that the painting mess was minimal since the paint pods that attach to the easel prevents paint spills. Sounds awesome, right?

Valentine’s Day 2018- It is the thought that counts…

As my girls get older and I realize that time really does fly when you are a parent, I never believed it until I have seen for myself how quickly our kids grow and you want to hold onto every moment just a little bit longer.

My husband and I are so blessed to have two beautiful girls who truly love each other so much. They show each other how much they truly love one another by doing the little things like; making cards for one another, getting a band-aid when their sister has a boo-boo, or getting a snack for their sister when they get one for themselves. They might make each other cry at times and argue (what siblings don’t fight?) but, in the end they are each other’s best friends and ours, too.

Valentine’s Day Chocolates

What’s the first word that comes to mind when you think of Valentine’s Day? Love, hearts, cards, red? For me, it’s definitely chocolate! As a kid I loved waking up to find that little red heart full of chocolates waiting for me on the dining room table, and the truth is, I wouldn’t be disappointed to wake up to one now. The other side of that truth is, I know I would eat the whole box. Mike on the other hand, has incredible self control and he can make a small box of chocolates last for months. That never happens though, because after 3 days I consider it to be fair game and it’s gone before he knows what happened!

So this year I decided to make him some homemade chocolates.

Avocado Brownies

Happy Friday! So, I had a different post written up for today, but I made a split second decision to change it up because these AVOCADO BROWNIES are too good to keep to myself!

I found this recipe over at FrugalMomeh.com and have been meaning to give it a try for a while now. I mean, I already love chocolate avocado cookies, and chocolate avocado pudding, so avocado brownies naturally seemed like the next dessert to make (btw, can you tell I LOVE chocolate?!).
