Nothing warms you up on a freezing winter's day like a steaming mug of hot chocolate! You will not believe some of the recipes in this collection of 20 Amazing Hot Cocoa Recipes!

I am not a coffee drinker. I keep trying, but I just really don’t like it. Some of the super sweet Starbucks ones are okay, but mostly if you can’t actually taste the coffee in them, just the cream and sugar and caramel and chocolate and fat.  But what I do love, like crazy love, is hot chocolate. I don’t know if it’s a hold over from when I was a kid or what, but there’s something about a delicious cup… Read more »

Your dog deserves a little homemade love too! These beef, bacon & peanut butter dog treats are easy to make, and your puppy is guaranteed to gobble them up!

Oh yes, people. You’ve been waiting for it, and here it is: another National Food Holiday. If you read this blog regularly, you’ll know that I have a thing for these random food holidays. I’ve talked about them here, here, here, here and here. Today’s just makes me laugh. Happy National Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day!  Whaaa?? I mean, why shouldn’t dogs get a day too? But dog biscuit appreciation day? Why not just National Dog Biscuit Day? Do we really appreciate them… Read more »

If you are looking for some new books to read, check out this great list of 10 amazing page-turners. Pinning this to keep for my Amazon wishlist!

Wow, that title sounds all sorts of bossy, doesn’t it? But here’s the thing: I am what you would call an avid reader. I have always loved reading, and I pretty much cannot go to sleep at night without reading at least a few pages of whatever book I’m in the middle of. I go through at least one or two books a week, so I’m always looking for new books to read. I thought some of you might feel… Read more »

White chocolate mousse sounds kind of intimidating to make, but it's so easy, and is crazy delicious. Top it with some raspberry whipped cream, raspberries and a puff pastry heart for a super special dessert!

Like I mentioned a few weeks ago, I have been finding it super difficult to get back into the swing of things, blog-wise, after the holidays. This weather certainly isn’t helping, but I really need to light a fire under myself and get going. I meant for this white chocolate mousse recipe to be up before Valentine’s Day, but it didn’t happen. So, whatever, I’m sharing it now. I think Valentine’s Day is kind of a silly, made-up holiday anyways,… Read more »

This fruit and yogurt parfait is light, healthy because it's made with Greek yogurt, and delicious enough to eat for dessert!

This article is sponsored by Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! So here’s the thing. I am generally not a huge fan of Greek yogurt. There, I said it.  Everyone is totally all gung ho about Greek yogurt, but there’s just something about it that tastes funky to me. But I know it’s so good for you, so I keep trying it. And not liking it. Until now. I decided I was going to try a different brand this time, and when… Read more »

MONOPOLY Plus on the PlayStation3 is a fantastic option for family game night! #HasbroGameChannel #CG

We go a little crazy for games in our house. Dave and I both grew up playing board games with our families, and it was such a special thing for us that we want to pass that along to our own family. I think it’s so important to spend quality time as a family, talking and eating and having fun. Game night is a perfect way to do that. We try to do family game night at least every other… Read more »

This Raspberry Whipped Cream is amazing -- and it's made with only 3 ingredients! This would be so delicious on pretty much anything -- but especially chocolate!!

I have a confession to make.  I absolutely, positively, love Cool-Whip. Like, would eat it by itself with a spoon as my dessert {or dinner}, love it. I am not ashamed. But as much as I love the fake stuff, there is something about real whipped cream. It’s so light and fluffy and airy and perfect — yum, yum, yum. It’s one of those things that can take your dessert to a whole new level {also known as: fancy-pants town},… Read more »

I've seen plates like this for over $80 each!! This one cost $2, and is crazy easy to make.

I don’t know what it is, but I’m a teensy bit obsessed with gold right now. (Remember my Gold-Dipped Bamboo Serving Set from last month?) I am seeing gold all over the place lately, and as I was messing around online the other day, I stumbled onto this amazing gold polka dot plate from Kelly Wearstler. Yeah, you read that right. It’s $82. For ONE PLATE. Seriously?? I decided to make one for myself. And it cost me $2. So… Read more »

Make hot chocolate even more of a treat with these adorable little snowman marshmallows! You will never believe what you use to make the face!

Holy moly. I don’t know what is going on with me, but I am finding it ridiculously hard to get back into the swing of things after the holidays. Part of it is because we are in the midst of a massive de-crap-ifying of our house, so I am spending a ton of time going through each room in our house and getting rid of a TON of stuff. Plus, I’ve had sick kids and snow days and migraines, so… Read more »

Make DIY Bath Bombs out of common household ingredients! These are so easy to make, you won't believe you've been buying them for so long! Grab a few of your favorite magazines, and create a relaxing night for yourself! #NewYearMeTime #Pmedia #ad

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and PEOPLE® and InStyle®, but all my opinions are my own. #PMedia #NewYearMeTime With 3 boys and a puppy, my life is clearly not dull or boring. It’s actually a little insane most of the time. So naturally, I don’t get a whole lot of time for me. Most of the time, I worry way more about the rest of my family than I do… Read more »

This Anthropologie knock-off gold dipped servings set is a perfect hostess gift this holiday, and it can be made in no time at all -- for less than $10!

If you read my blog with any regularity, you know that I love Anthropologie, but not their prices. So I am constantly inspired by their products, and I love trying to figure out how I can make something similar on my own, like with my Knock-off Anthropologie Heart Pillow and my DIY Polka Dot Mug. My newest Anthropologie Knock-Off is inspired by this Brass-Tipped Serving Set, which is no longer available but was originally $38 for 2 pieces. I made my… Read more »

The most popular posts from in 2014 -- there are some fabulous posts in here!!

Happy New Year, everyone! Can you believe it’s 2015?!? Crazy town, I tell ya. Although I have to say: I am pretty sure I’ve never been so happy for a year to end, because 2014 was a rough one for us. From big things {the death of my mother-in-law in February} to smaller, less tragic things {David breaking his toe, Mason getting two staples in his head, me being sick for three straight months…}, it was one thing after another,… Read more »

Holy moly people, Christmas is in 3 days! THREE DAYS! Gaahh! This will be my last post for a little while {probably until after the new year}, so that I can spend some QT with the fam, but before I go, I absolutely had to share a new site I discovered this holiday. Yeah. Thanks to LEGO, you can create your own customized Minifigure holiday card. How much fun is that?!? And even better, it’s free! You start by choosing… Read more »

Thanks to Nestle Toll House for sponsoring today’s discussion. #CookieDoughSheets #TollHouseTime #NestleTollHouse I am a happy girl today, people. A happy, happy girl. Know why? Because of some cookies and some cookie dough. Seriously. I’m a simple girl. I can’t even express in words how happy these Nestle Toll House Rolled & Ready Cookie Dough Sheets make me.  Decorating sugar cookies is one of my very favorite things to do during Christmas, but I really have no patience to make the… Read more »

Kat, Rebecca, Sandra and I have loved hosting and getting to know so many of you, and I know I am so happy to have been introduced to all of your amazing blogs, but we’ve decided that it’s time to end the party.  I want to thank all of you for hanging out with us over the past year,… Read more »

The Sharp Aquos Crystal smartphone is a perfect gift this holiday season! #SprintMom #Sponsored #MC

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Sprint. I received a sample device to facilitate this review. #SprintMom #Sponsored #MC You might remember that for the past several months, I’ve been a Sprint Ambassador, which means that I get to try out all sorts of newfangled goodies from Sprint and let all of you know what I thought of them. {For my thoughts on the HTC One Max Harmon/Kardon edition, click here; to learn more about the… Read more »


Ok, so I am trying not to have a full-blown panic attack that Christmas is a little over a week away. I am not done shopping, I haven’t finished decorating my house, and I’ve barely even begun baking all my Christmas cookies.  But my friend Julie from White Lights on Wednesday is hosting her 3rd Annual Christmas Cookie Recipe Swap, and of course I had to participate. HOST Julie from White Lights on Wednesday COHOSTS Aubrey from Real Housemoms Rachel from {i… Read more »
