GF Pineapple Muffins

2013 June 21

GF Pineapple Muffins
We struggle with foods a lot at home. With our oldest having so many allergies, I’m in the kitchen a lot more than I’d like to. I never was much of a cook or chef but now I have to be. One of our favorite recipes that we came across was from Allyson Kramer’s Blog All her recipes are gluten free and vegan.
Now, we’re not vegan by any stretch and Lilly LOVES Bacon (can you blame her), but finding something that doesn’t contain wheat or dairy or egg can be tricky. Added to that, it needs to taste good enough for a finicky pre-schooler to like it.

iDad Father’s Day Card

iDad Fathers Day Card


When a version of this came across my feed from I knew I had to recreate the idea for my own iPad/iPhone addicted loving Father. I used my handy dandy Silhouette machine to do all my dirty work and cut out all the icon flaps.


Following their idea, I grabbed apple icons from the web and resized them to fit my design leaving the bottom flaps for our message to my Dad. It was fun looking back through some of our family pictures and finding ones that would be meaningful to my dad and spotlighted each of our 3 kids as well as Mr. Millionayres and myself.

Got no love for cavities? Candy free Valentine’s Day Cards

2013 February 1

Now while I joke that all my teeth are “Sweet” teeth, it seems to me like there’s always some holiday on the horizon with the promise of sweets to eat. It’s hard enough to say no to myself, but it seems like I’m constantly telling my kiddos “No” to some around every corner.

So I wanted to share with you the Valentine’s Day cards my little ones will be giving out this season. I decided to make 2 different ones though not for any reason other than the fact that I liked both of them. While you might think 1 was for boys and 1 for girls, that’s not the case. My girls LOVE playing with cars and I know plenty of little guys who would dominate this puzzle with their (very) admirable hand eye coordination.

{Son}shine Birthday Party!

So, it may have been thrown 10 days after the fact, but I’m so excited to share with you Weston’s 1st birthday party! The theme was {son}shine, without being the typical “You are my sunshine…” so that meant there was yellow galore!
As it typically is, 1st birthday parties aren’t usually about the kid but it’s more for the adults. It’s a congratulatory celebration for keeping another human being alive for an entire year!


We started the party with Weston still asleep but shortly after everyone arrived, we woke him up, made him look a little dapper in his gray and yellow interlocking circle bow tie and blue fedora we picked up at target.

Busy Board for a Busy {birthday} Boy!

2013 January 9


Today was our son Weston’s first birthday. I could gush and tell you all the typical mom speak that seems to spill out of the mouth of a proud mama but this post would be entirely too long and there are enough pictures I wanted to show you so I’ll spare you. Just know I love my son’s guts and I am so blessed to be his mommy.

Okay, so many of you may also be super frugal and a little bit of the coupon crazy tendency like me. If you do you may have heard about a new app called Ibotta.

Ibotta is an app that lets you earn money for buying the products you already buy and use. The best part is that you control how much money you can earn. You earn real money by learning about products. You can take polls, read facts or watch short videos.

Since the app has already be tested and proven on the Apple market you know that it is only expanding. As a matter of fact,

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!

2012 December 14

I first saw a version of what is now our “kids only” Christmas tree on pinterest. It was coming from Etsy for something in the ball park of $35. Whauuuhht? Upstairs I ran and gathered some stuff. I had bought the green felt at Walmart while I was there for my (necessary evil) Walmart run for this purpose but I had red felt at home and I wanted the kids “ornaments” to kinda match the color scheme we had going for the rest of the decorations.
