Low tech and high tech toys that are faves in my house right now

January 22, 2018

  The holidays are over, the decorations are packed away and we’re about a month into all the fun toys that have arrived at our house. (I can’t take credit for the decorations being down…that’s definitely the hubby’s doing. I would have them up all year round but not because I’m festive….) And of course […]

Fields of Fun Cherry Blossoms and Tips for Snapping Pics with Osh Kosh

April 23, 2017

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’Gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.  Sometime around Easter after we’ve had enough snowstorms in the mountains and endless days of winter rain, little blossoms decide they’re going to erupt in Seattle like glorious hopeful confetti poppers to let us know that there […]

A little while ago, I received a package in the mail from Halos.  I was excited when I saw the cute little orange on the front and it was so festively Christmas with an adorable orange-shaped ornament, some crafting decor, coupons and A MAP.

October 15, 2016

Good on a Monday post from An Emerald City Life

Random Acts of Kindness and good on a Monday

September 27, 2016

Yes, it’s dreary-o-clock somewhere this Monday morning and judging by my Facebook feed full of horrific random shootings in places I’ve been to and unsettling political rants, it might feel a lot like the world might be coming to an end. But why would I want to contribute to the PR of gloom and doom? […]

When you can’t get anything done because it’s still summer on a Monday

August 23, 2016

Seriously, how on earth is anyone to get anything done when you play all day with two 8-year-old boys?  My sweet boys are suddenly 8 and I have no idea how that happened.  8 is such a grown-up sounding number and it’s way too close to 10.  But because this made me feel sentimental I […]
