Peppa Pig Birthday Party

We celebrated Zoe turning two with a Peppa Pig birthday party and a #2 sparkler candle, one went over better than the other! Peppa is basically a third child of ours (along with the entire cast of Paw Patrol), so a Peppa Pig birthday party was a no brainer. We were doing some Christmas shopping back in November at ToyRus when we stumbled upon the mother load of Peppa Pig toys.. Read More

mom truth monday : my cure-all for my kids aches & pains

A belated happy new year to you all! We had a very long, very busy holiday season and a whole lot of family time.

Santa Pictures & Christmas Playlist

No matter how early I start my Christmas shopping and holiday prep (and I start in late October) I am still running around the week before Christmas doing last minute things. How does this happen? Adele has hijacked our normal 24hr Christmas music ritual but we have managed to squeeze our Christmas playlist in here and there too. Ever since my sister-in-law’s post wedding beach party last December in St.Thomas, Virgin.. Read More

and just like that, she’s two!

Happy Monday indeed! Today we celebrate our very precocious, majorly bossy, super loving and sweet little Zoe-bug who is officially two today! It’s so cliche to say but as l-o-n-g and as t-i-r-i-n-g as Zoe has made these last two years feel, they have simultaneously flown by in a blink of an eye. We are so so in love with our little Zoe-bug, life just wouldn’t be as good without her.  This.. Read More

thankful

Happy Thanksgiving from the mini-wheats who are celebrating the holiday with family and soaking up every ounce of beach that we can. We are so thankful for many things, but our health, safety and family top the list, in addition to time we get to spend with those we don’t get to see often.  We’ve had a few great beach days already and we’re heading there now for a pre Thanksgiving..

FIVE weeks till Christmas

That’s right people, there are only FIVE weeks until Christmas! I am simultaneously ecstatic and and terrified. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas and I cannot wait for the holiday season to be fully upon us, however, my A-type personality goes into straight panic at the thought of ALL THINGS that need to get done between now and then. I’ve made a list, oh yes, my list is very detailed and I have.. Read More

weekend wrap-up

It seems that all our weekends from here on out are jam packed and this past one was no different. We kicked off the weekend by taking the day off on Friday to do a late fall version of “spring cleaning”. With the influx of stuff that will be coming into the house over the holidays I was seconds away from having a panic attack due to clutter and claustrophobia… Read More

Happy Monday y’all, It’s mom truth Monday! Mom truth: Lately it seems I have to go full on “momster” in order to get anyone to listen to me.  This is what life has seemed like lately: I make a request —–> Nobody listens I make a request —–> Nobody listens I make a request —–> Nobody listens I make a request —–> Nobody listens I scream my F*c%ing head off..

It’s Monday and it’s also November. That means that Halloween everything is over, US Thanksgiving is right around the corner and our Caribbean vacation is quickly approaching. This November is going to fly by, but for now, another Mom truth Monday.  Mom truth: It’s November 2nd, which means it’s time for everything Christmas.
