    Single Serving Sparkling Sangria

    Summer is approaching, and we’re spending most of our days outside. One of my favorite drinks to have on a hot day is sangria. The problem is that I don’t drink it often, and nobody else drinks it. That means a big pitcher goes to waste. I wanted to find my perfect sangria that I could make a glass at a time. Thats how I created this single serving sparkling sangria recipe. The addition of seltzer makes this sangria even better, because it keeps it light enough if I want more than one. Single Serving Sparkling Sangria This recipe is insanely easy. I started by adding a handful of frozen…

    Children’s Book of the Week: The Bad Seed

    It’s time for another children’s book of the week! This week I’m going to be sharing The Bad Seed written by Jory John & illustrated Pete Oswald. As usual, I have this book through Kindle Unlimited. Sign up and get your first month free! The Bad Seed is definitely a bedtime favorite for DJ. Not only is the illustration gorgeous, but we love the story. DJ loves yelling, “I’M A BAAAAAD SEED!” This book follows a “bad” seed. He starts off by explaining all the bad things he does. In addition, he explains why he is the way he is. He told us his life story, and why he became a “bad” seed.…

    Family Friendly Las Vegas: Black Bear Diner

    I’m back with another family friendly Las Vegas post. These are some of my favorite things to write about, because this is my city. Things are a bit crazy now with COVID-19, and I’m sure when the next time I’ll be able to post one these. Black Bear Diner is one of my favorite places to eat in Las Vegas. It really reminds me of a New York diner, which in turn reminds me of home. Every time my Mom comes to visit we go there to eat. Currently all non-essential businesses are closes in Las Vegas; however, Black Bear Diner is open for pick up and delivery. They were…

    6 Easter Outfits for Little Kids

    We are around a month away from Easter, and I figured it was time to start looking into outfits for DJ and Brooklyn. However, with everything that’s been going on with the coronavirus I decided that I’m going to my shopping online. I compiled a list of six easter outfits for little kids for you. There is three outfits for boys, and three outfits for girls. I chose three different stores and picked two outfits from each store. In addition, I like DJ and Brooklyn’s outfits to semi-match, or at least hav the same color scheme. Which you will see down below. Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. I may…

    Spring Clothing Haul (Preschool Age)

    Spring and warm weather is right around the corner. Especially here in Vegas where the weather is already reaching 70 on a good day. I thought this would be the perfect time to get started on their spring wardrobe and share with you all this spring clothing haul. I love all these pieces. They can be worn in a way that is still good for a bit of the chillier weather. They can also wear these pieces all summer long. This haul is all from Rockets of Awesome*. One of the things I love is that while I got the smaller sizes on their site all of these items of…

    Preparing for Kindergarten

    Time is going by so quickly, and it’s almost time for DJ to start Kindergarten. Honestly, I can’t believe it. How has the last almost five years gone so fast? We didn’t send DJ is pre-k, but I have being doing homeschool pre-k. I’ve been making sure we’ve been preparing for kindergarten. There is still a few things we need to do to prepare for kindergarten as well. First thing is that DJ is technically going to be homeschooled. Our plan was to enroll him in the online public charter school here; however, they ruled to close it down after this year. That means until sixth grade he needs to…

Second, in the beginning of January I launched my YouTube channel. This post was actually a YouTube video first; however, I believe this will be a great blog post as well! I am sharing my favorite products to help baby and toddler eczema. I feel like…
