Wash-and-go

Summer officially arrives this Saturday. But, it looks like Mother Nature has decided to give us a little preview of the season this week. With highs near 90, Princess has been sporting her curly locks. That said, Sunday has become our designated “hair day.” Here’s how we’ve perfected her wash-and-go-routine: 1.

Disney’s Maleficent: Princess Aurora Inspired Twistback

Disney's Maleficient

If you ask Princess who her favorite Disney Princess is, she’d probably say Aurora. The other day all the girls were asked to dress as Princesses, and all the boys as pirates. I resurrected Baby O’s Halloween costume, which actually still fits. I wanted to recreate Aurora’s twistback, as seen in Disney’s Maleficent.   I […]

IMG_8424

I can’t front. There are times when I fantasize about being a stay-home-mom. How hard can it be? All you have to do is feed them, change their diapers, and put them down for nap time. You also have to make sure they don’t hurt themselves or destroy the house. Think that’s easy? Think again! […]

When I first heard about today being “Siblings Day,” I was like ‘word?’ I immediately texted my brother and sister, who both had no idea there is such a day. It seems fitting to write this post to not only celebrate being a sibling, but to also my two little munchkins. Last year Princess was […]

Ever since Princess was a baby she’s been singing  Beyonce’s “Love on Top.”  The minute I strap her in the car seat she asks for Beyonce. If I don’t turn on the music on fast enough, she loses her mind! This has been going on for the last couple of years now. I thought by […]

I’ve always enjoyed reading. As a kid, my mother made it a requirement. I remember getting books from my cousins. There were so many that we ended up turning one of our closets into a mini library.
