    Mini Individual Apple Crumble Pies

    Now that it’s the fall, I seem to have an abundance of apples from apple picking. One great way to use up those apples is to bake with them. I decided to look for a new way to make apple pie, and I found a great one in my Harry Potter Unofficial Cookbook. I found one for mini individual apple crumble pies. While I did use the recipe in the cookbook as a guide, I did improvise a tiny bit with the filling. I used four granny smith apples, instead of two granny smith & two gala apples. Also, I had a bit a trouble with my crust.. because I…

    Extra Chocolatey Brownies with Salted Caramel Drizzle

    Now that fall has arrived it’s time my baking hits high gear. I was really wanting to making brownies, because for some reason this is the hardest thing for me to master still. However, I wanted to incorporate a little bit of fall flavor into my brownies. Which is how I came up with brownies with salted caramel drizzle. I didn’t truly create either of the recipes I used. I tweaked this brownie recipe, and used a Bobby Flay salted caramel recipe. Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. I may earn a small commission at no additional cost to you.

    My Top Three Baby Registries

    When I was pregnant with both DJ and Brooklyn I used Babies R Us for my registry. Unfortunately, they closed down and I can’t recommend them like I used to. I thought it would be a good idea to research different baby registries that were out there. This way when someone inevitably asks me which one I recommend I can let them know. I narrowed it down to my top three baby registries for you. I’m going to give you the benefits of these registries along with any cons there may be, but to be honest I can’t see any cons about a registry. Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.…

    Baked Chicken Tenders

    One of DJ’s current favorite foods is chicken nuggets. I decided that I wanted to find a way to make them from home. Well, I made baked chicken tenders instead of chicken nuggets. There wasn’t really any good reason for it. Honestly, I just happened to buy pre chopped up chicken breast. I decided to leave the chicken in whatever shape it was chopped into when I bought it. You could always make this recipe into nuggets by cutting the chicken breast into a nugget shape. This recipe is really versatile. You could honestly fry the nuggets in a pan with oil if you wanted. This is a very easy…

    Michaels Kids Club

    I’m always looking for new things to do with DJ & Brooklyn that is both fun and inexpensive. I want to take them to different places. I finally listened to my friend about going to the Michaels Kids Club on Saturday. It was definitely a lot of fun. They have two different crafts depending on the age group. When we went the theme was hedgehogs. DJ was ecstatic. Every Saturday from 10 am to noon Michaels has their Kids Club. They have a 3+ craft for $2 and a 6+ craft for $5. We did the 3+ hedgehog craft for DJ, and they gave Brooklyn markers and paper to color.…

    DJ’s Third Birthday Party!

    I’m just going to start off with the fact that I cannot believe my little boy is already three. My mind is having a hard time processing how this happened. I logically three years has past, but it doesn’t feel like it. DJ has been obsessed with Mickey Mouse for the majority of these three years. We didn’t end up throwing him a first birthday party, because he was sick. He had a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse “Oh Two-dles” themed party for his second birthday, but there wasn’t a lot of people there since we had canceled and decided to have it again last-minute (he had a stomach virus a few days…

    My Most Used Baby Products

    I remember when I was pregnant with DJ, I would search for hours every day to make sure I had every single item I needed. We bought all of the must have items. I will be totally honest when I say that I bought way too much. When I was pregnant with Brooklyn I bought a few more things. I’ll admit that I may have a shopping problem. I’ve compiled quite a few lists to help new parents from making the same mistakes as me. This list isn’t area specific though. This is my most used baby products in general. Remember that just because these products worked for me, they…

    Sephora Play! | August 2018

    The Sephora Play! August 2018 box is amazing. I love every single item I received. There isn’t one thing I wont get use out of. I’m definitely happy about it. Beauty Schooled is the theme this month. Brow Gel | Anastasia Beverly Hills I just ran out of my brow gel. When I saw this I used to instantly. I love it! My brows don’t move, but don’t feel uncomfortable. Hoola Bronzer | Benefit Cosmetics I’ve never used this before. Crazy right?! I have always wanted to try it though, but I suck at bronzer. I didn’t want to buy a product that I felt I’d never get any use out of.…

    Staying Organized During Back To School Season

    Staying organized during back to school season can seem like a challenge. After a summer of play and relaxation it can seem difficult to get back into the  groove. While Brooklyn & DJ aren’t in school yet, I am planning on starting DJ on preschool homeschooling. I decided to look for things to get for our house to help us stay more organized that I will be able to use every year. A great place to look for items to stay organized with is Wayfair. I compiled a list of my 6 must have items from Wayfair for staying organized during back to school season. These are the items I foresee…
