Now you know how my Gracie is super-dooper girly, loved ruffles and dresses and wears flowers in her hair almost every day, right? I have no idea where she got this from. Now my oldest, Ellie, is a different story.... Continue reading

Saturday morning started bright and early with an 8:00 soccer game. As in 8:00 AM. (Why, Mr. Soccer Director? WHY?!?) Then, after coming home and taking a nap, the family threw on just some of our ridiculous amount of Philadelphia... Continue reading

This morning I'm having a Stella & Dot party at my house. Wanna join? They have fantastic jewelry. FABULOUS. I could probably close my eyes and pick a page in the catalog and be perfectly happy with whatever I ended... Continue reading

I recently got to choose business cards from Tiny Prints. This task was much harder than I anticipated. I was shocked, by the way. I'm a graphic designer and rarely like the pre-designed options I see at online printers. Typically, they have 2 or 3 designs that are cute -- which you then see at every conference because everyone has them! But with Tiny Prints, I could not decide! There were so many cute ones I loved! I love the Timeless Floral in green! But the Triple Ring is gorgeous too! I love the monogram! Ooo- but the Natural Frame... Continue reading

Last week, I shared a bit of background of what I've been reading and why we're rethinking some of the foods we have in our house and the baby-steps we are taking to change. First, we've made the switch to... Continue reading

We're starting this spring break with the girls having a sleepover at their grandparents' house. I've heard rumors that cupcakes and manicures will be involved so they will probably return to our house glittery and sugared up. (As one should... Continue reading

I've been doing a lot of research lately on our food and how its made and health implications. It has not been fun. But I'm trying to be reasonable and cut out only one thing at a time. Two things I've started cutting out of our diets are High Fructose Corn Syrup and food dyes. And if you've ever tired to do this, you realize that they are both everywhere. One thing we thought we'd miss this summer are popsicles. Typical popsicles are only mainly frozen sugar water dyed unnaturally bright colors. (Blu-Razzberry, anyone?) But I was thrilled to discover... Continue reading
