I grew up without a dad or father figure. My dad is still alive but he has been absent most of my life. Just in the last couple of years, I’ve made an effort to pursue more of a relationship with him. I can count on one hand how many times I’ve seen him when I was younger. Half of those times I didn’t even know he was my dad. It’s still difficult to form a relationship because I don’t know this man. I listened to God and he told me to keep trying. I’ve never celebrated a Father’s Day until my husband came along because I didn’t have one to celebrate. Thank God for blessing my girls with such and amazing dad. Total opposite of what I had growing up.
It’s not often that Peyton’s room is photo worthy but once my items from Mouse + Magpie arrived, I was motived to bring her room back to life. Mouse + Magpie is a carefully curated decor and furnishing company for kids with big imaginations. Mouse + Magpie collections consist of artwork, throw pillows, lamps, clocks and sherpa blankets. Peyton has a big personality and the only thing that is bigger than her personality is her imagination. Peyton sees everything as an adventure ready to explore. I’m happy that her room now reflects her big imagination and encourages her to dream big. Mouse + Magpie has been so kind to allow me to give away a few items to one lucky reader.

Growing up, having a box of cereal in the cabinet was a must. My mom worked a lot so my go to meal was always cereal. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, If I was hungry I would make me a bowl of Cheerios, with or without milk. I also remember waking up on Saturday mornings and making myself a big bowl of cereal and watching cartoons. I probably remember it mainly because it was my only chance at watching cartoons for the week (Yes, I’m that old). Even though my girls can watch cartoons and videos on demand, I love when Peyton take the initiative to shares her Cheerios with her baby sister. With the help of Cheerios my girls can share a special moment with family near and far and so can you. Keep reading for details.
Summertime wardrobes should be cute, effortless and affordable. I’ve noticed some friends talking about getting their kids wardrobes together for the summer on a budget. Most of us are in the same boat because before you know it, we’ll be spending our coins for back to school clothes. Keep reading for my tips and favorite places to shop for my kids’ everyday summer attire.
It feels like it’s been a month of Sundays since I blogged. Things have been pretty busy around these parts and I’m just coming up for air. I hope you all had an enjoyable long weekend! Mine started off good but on Monday we ended up in urgent care because Harper was running a fever of 104! Poor baby felt like an oven. The doctor’s don’t know what’s wrong but we’ve managed to keep the fever down. She’s moving around more today. Nothing worse than not knowing what’s wrong with your child. I’m guessing it’s just a bug passing through. Before all that went down, we attended a high school graduation and the girls looked adorbs in their little wide leg pants.
