There's something magical about making S'mores. We can do it anywhere: outdoor fire pit, fancy tea light or even...an indoor S'mores plate. DIY fun, inside.
I don't actually eat the S'mores. I just love to sit on mom-chair duty, with the graham crackers on one side of me and the chocolate on my lap, working on production, and seeing the kids' sweet faces and the joy that comes of perfectly melting a marshmallow. There is something romantic, cathartic...magical(?) about the making of the S'mores....
Last-minute ideas for Halloween at home? We've got you covered with movies to watch, games to play, on-theme food to eat & more family-friendly fun!
Halloween is here! I found myself struggling to figure out what to do to celebrate one of my favorite holidays when parties and costumes just weren't going to happen. My roommate and I have agreed a movie night (movie day?) seems appropriate...but it doesn't feel special enough. So. I've thought up 3 ideal theme nights for celebrating Halloween at...
We're obsessed with Boon Supply, an eco-conscious home goods brand donating 40% of earnings to a cause. Think cool containers & reversible wrapping paper.
Boon Supply is a brand that initially hooked me on their solid selection of (what I'll call) Prettier Home Essentials, but they're also a brand I'm happy to share for one other huge reason: they donate 40% of all earnings to a fundraiser/organization of your choice. We love brands who are committed to giving back, and have been really...
It's At-Home Halloween 2020 for these kids & toddlers. We found these fun Halloween crafts & decorations at Target — check out the pumpkins!
Greenlea's favorite holiday is Halloween. She LOVES the decorations, the scary movies (I mean more like Halloweentown and Curious George, less like Nightmare on Elm Street), the costumes and especially the candy. She LOVES the candy. So when I told her there might not be any trick-or-treating this year (there won't be), she panicked. "What about a Halloween...
We found 14 gorg, functional charcuterie boards. Lovely for simply displaying cheese, meet, lunch, dinner or snacks. Boards make great gifts, too.
Bored with cooking? Me too. I have to tuck my kitchen-chef-ego in a bit to own this truth, but here it is: the meals I've gotten the ravest reviews on recently, are the ones where I didn't even cook. Mmmhmm. And I'm OK with that. I'm even excited about it. Here are 14 beautiful and functional boards. YES friends...that is...
Let's go...homeschool, remote learning, hybrid school...For school-at-home + WFH, a peek into our apartment organization & kids' study nook.
Because it is August, and because Facebook is creepy, I keep getting these Timeline reminders, or whatever they’re called, of various past status updates expressing my excitement about the first day of school -- as a teacher. I loved everything about that first day -- a newly decorated classroom, a fresh set of unit plans and course syllabi, my...
For summer grilling, we have a few tips & tricks: think grill accessories like smart prep trays, skewers & pizza stones + recipes like beer can chicken & veggie trays.
Summer 2020 gave us a head start on outdoor grilling through eating all our meals at home, every day, and we are on a roll at this point! Early on, after reading all the reviews, we ordered ourselves a grill, assembled it, and have pretty much been grilling and dining al fresco since. Summertime Sizzlin': Grill Accessories & Recipes We...
Face masks (obvi) + sippy cups, fun games, picnic blankets, music, utensils....basically all we need to socialize from a physical distance, right. #addtocart
I see people gathering. I see some of them, in masks, (scroll down deep for all my current favorite masks) trying their best to allow kids and adults alike a little physically distanced-outdoor-safe time with friends and family, for the sake of love and sanity. I see them on patios and porches, in parks and backyards. And I see...
Insulated travel coffee mugs — we judged by look, feel, durability, spill-proofing &...y'know...how well they actually work...to find 1 mug to limit our environmental impact.
This is a post for all the running-out-the-door, tugging-on-sneaks, "Do you have your backpack?"-"Where are the keys?"-"Put on a jacket!" moms. Now that I'm doing the same thing every morning (admittedly sans children), having a cup of heaven to cuddle on the bus ride into the city is a treasure. What is not a treasure, is hitting one of...
