Fall season calls for some delicious apples and what better way to enjoy them than topped on some good old fashioned pancakes. Pancakes are well loved in my household.

Black Friday Shopping Tips!

November 17, 2017

Black Friday is definitely one of the most anticipated shopping days of the year for most of us. Black Friday is following the day after Thanksgiving, which many take as an official day to start holiday shopping. Stores roll out their biggest sales of the year. Within the last few years though we have seen black Friday move to Thursday. This year they have even started the black Friday deals sooner. I put together a few tips that can help you get through that shopping trip a lot smoother.

Affordable DIY Christmas Advent Calendar

November 16, 2017

Is anyone else excited that Christmas is only 40 days away? We already put up our tree and hopefully will start putting up lights this weekend. Something that I believe makes Christmas that more exciting is counting down the days with an advent calendar. Especially with little ones at home, seeing their faces when we get to only a few days away is amazing.  However, advent calendars can be pretty expensive at the store depending on what you want , so I made ours this year. I usually go to Pinterest for inspiration and just go from there. I like to gather a few pictures of different ideas and use something from each.

Pumpkin Patch Fun | Mario & Luigi Costume

November 1, 2017

Halloween is officially over but before we move on to the upcoming holidays I wanted to share some of our pictures from the pumpkin patch. We always have a good time and this pumpkin patch has been our favorite for a while now. It's small compared to other ones but the way they set up each year is simply beautiful. 

Game of Thrones | Mother of Dragons | Costume Idea

October 25, 2017

On my last halloween costume idea for kids I mentioned I had another fun idea that would include both myself and the kids and here it is. A fun twist on "Game of Thrones", Mother of Dragons. I recently finished watching seasons 1-7. I actually had never heard of the show until about a few months ago when everyone was talking about season 7 finale. Im sad because I am obsessed with the show now and I believe they are only having one more season. About our costumes...

Halloween Treats | Frankenstein Popsicles

October 14, 2017

Just because summer is over doesn't mean we can't enjoy popsicles in the fall. My kids love popsicles so I thought why not make some halloween inspired popsicles. I wasn't sure how they would turn out since usually when you make popsicles you just freeze your mixture and hours later they are ready to eat. To make a Frankenstein face though I had to decorate these after (right before eating) but they still came out cute. Heres what you need:

DIY Kids Costume Idea | Milk & Cookie

October 11, 2017

Halloween is only weeks away so I wanted to bring you guys a fun and cute idea for siblings. For the last three years I have dressed up my kids in matching costumes. Each year I pick a theme and come up with something cute to dress them up in. Last year they were pikachu and ash, the following year they were curious george and the man in the yellow hat, and the first year they were sully and mike from Monsters Inc. We don't normally go trick or treating but I like for them to at least dress up. Besides my oldest Giovanni already said he wants to pick his costume next year. I might be able to sneak in at least one more costume next year we'll see. For now let's talk about this adorable milk carton and chocolate chip cookie. 

Perfect on the go snack for kids

October 5, 2017

I am sure most of you know how it's like to go get groceries or run errands with your children. I can't be the only one that gets stressed and a workout all at once am I right? It's like the only thing that will keep them calm is snacks! "Mami, Can I have cookies? Mami, Can I have chocolate?" I am guilty of giving in so that they can sit in the cart quietly while I finish my shopping. I started paying attention to all the ingredients on the snacks they used to eat and realized how much junk was in there.

How I Organize My Refrigerator

September 29, 2017

When it comes to organization I feel that things function better when everything has a spot. Growing up my room was probably the one organized room in my moms house. I've always loved to have a clean and tidy space so of course that would be the case in our home. 

Update: Hurricane Irma

September 13, 2017

I know it's been a while since my last post but if you follow me on social media then you know that we were busy preparing for hurricane Irma. This was actually my first hurricane experience since I was little. The hurricane was supposed to pass right through the middle of Florida which would have been devastating for us. However, it continued to shift west little by little. It ended up making landfall on the west and even though it wasn't a direct hit to us it caused a lot of damage. There was a period were we got like 3 or 4 tornado warnings at once, it was so scary. My anxiety was through the roof. How I wished this storm would have just vanished. These natural disasters are horrific and it breaks my heart to know that not only did some people lose their homes but some lost their life. I am praying for all of us that were in Irmas path. I am thankful and grateful that we only experienced minor damages. If you saw my snapchat you saw the huge tree branch that fell from our tree and missed hitting our house. We also had water leak through under the baseboards in our bedroom but that is nothing that can't be fixed. I am just extremely thankful that through all of this we did not loose power. So many people are still without power and I understand it must be horrible specially in this heat. We are also currently under a boil water advisory which is a bummer because its time consuming but putting all that aside we are alive and well and that should be all that matters. I also want to take the time to thank all of you that continued to check up on my family and I throughout the weekend. 

Let's take a moment and pray for the world. There are so many things happening around the world. We don't always hear much about the rest of the world and that doesn't mean we shouldn't keep them in our prayers. 

3 Fun Things To Do With Kids | Summer

August 24, 2017

Keeping the kids busy so they are not bored not just during the summer but all year long can get very pricey, very fast. It's fun to treat the kids out to their favorite place but once you start doing it every week in a blink of an eye you will have spent a few hundred. So why not save that money for a nice vacation or staycation? I have found 3 things that my kids genuinely enjoy doing and best of all they are absolutely free! 

Coconut Strawberry Popsicles

August 20, 2017

Summer is literally almost over and fall is only a month away. I recently bought a popsicle mold to make my kids popsicles because my husband and I have actually started to avoid all foods with high fructose corn syrup.

Legoland Beach Retreat Weekend Vacation

August 6, 2017

I am back! So many things that happened since last year and I am finally back on track. I wanted my first post back to be a fun one. My family and I recently went on a spur of the moment mini weekend vacation to Legoland Florida. We were literally sitting on our dining room table talking about taking the kids somewhere fun when we said "Hey why not Legoland?" After going through the website and checking out the prices we saw that they opened up a new resort called Legoland Beach Retreat. The cute bungalow type rooms sold us immediately. So we booked it!
