Harper Loves Elmo

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  I used to look forward to the weekend to relax but there’s usually just as much going on during on the weekends as it is during the week.  Our weekends are filled with gymnastics meets, birthday party, grown-up parties, cleaning, work, events…. you name it.  In addition to a crazy weekend schedule, Harper has hit the terrible twos.  What doesn’t this child get into is the easier question.  The only thing that seems to keep her calm is Elmo.  Continue Reading

I’d Rather Be Reading

When I was a kid I never read books.  The only books that I had at home were library books that I never returned (they’re probably on my credit).  My mom, who herself learned to read at a late age was working all time and was not able to read to me. I managed to graduate from college with a marketing degree but I can’t imagine how much better I would have done if I had read more.  With my girls, I make sure they read daily outside of school work.  Unlike me, Peyton loves to read and owns a ton of books.

This post is brought to you by Simple Sugars and The Motherhood.  Simple Sugars does not make any claims about the benefits or potential benefits their scrubs may have for those with a medical condition like eczema or psoriasis since their products have not been studied in randomized clinical trials for the treatment of these conditions. I am sharing my personal and families experience.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

Keep reading to see how Simple Sugars cleared up Peyton’s eczema in just 3 days!

My Quick & Easy Closet Makeover

I’m getting a jump start on my spring cleaning.  Last week I tackled the jewelry and accessories in my closet.  The old system that I had was not working.  My jewelry was tangled and earrings were always missing.  It was taking me too long to pull myself together.  Instead of dealing with a jewelry organization system that wasn’t working, I decided to do something about it.  I already had the Container Store Elfa closet (HERE), so I headed to the store to see what else I could find.  Here’s the solution that I came up with.

Looking for Spring

It seems as though winter decided to take the year off.  In Atlanta, temps have been in the high 60s and 70s all winter long.  It’s February and people are rocking shorts.  I believe in dressing for the season, not the weather.  Find the right mix of clothes for my girls and myself could be challenging.  I dug in Harper’s closet and found this cute outfit I purchased from OshKosh in the fall that still fits and a perfect spring transition outfit.
