Valentine’s Day Decor for Your Home

*This post “Valentine’s Day Decor for Your Home” is sponsored by Oriental Trading* Alright, alright so I did it– talking about what I would want in my home from the last post made the browsing into an actual purchase, or two, or three.

New York City Dads Can Now Change Dirty Diapers

New York City Dads Can Now Change Dirty Diapers As a parent we become pretty great at MacGyvering our way through any situation where we need to make things happen for our children.

Best Crockpot Turkey Chili

Best Crockpot Turkey Chili Last week we were hit with a massive winter storm in NYC; flights were canceled, school was out (which is a good/bad thing depending on if the kids get a long), and two-inches of snow poured down every hour.

Even when the series of films came out, again I was like, “No thanks.” It wasn’t until we made it to Universal Studios and hello Wizarding World!

Here’s to a New Year, New Me?

Here’s to a New Year, New Me? When December hits people start thinking about the new year that’s approaching. List of goals we want to accomplish and how to better ourselves. I never cared much for those lists mostly because I never follow through– I’m too lazy to eat right, I’m way too tired to work out and it’s hard to change yourself! But, I get why these “lists” are…

It every child’s dream to one day hope on a plane and head to Disney World. Heck, it’s still a dream for me to go every year– but I’m not a millionaire.

Farmhouse Christmas Tree Ideas

Farmhouse Christmas Tree Ideas Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree! We found our tree, chopped it down and then finally decorated it. For about 4 years we kept with the same theme; colorful balls, every and any ornaments that were given to use and those green tree stands. Nothing special about it, but this year I wanted to put actual effort into it. I decided on, of course, a country…
