Night Wean a Co-Sleeping Baby

Night Wean a Co-Sleeping Baby…My little baby boy has slept in my arms since the day he was born. It’s been the most beautiful, comforting and lovely experience to have this special time with him. During the day my attention is split between him and his toddler sister, so I felt like this one-on-one time was really good for him. But, all good things must come to an end and I decided it was time to night wean my co-sleeper…


Fool Proof Chocolate Macarons

Fool Proof Chocolate Macarons…It’s chocolate macaron time: spring is in the air, the snow is melting, Easter is around the corner.  There’s nothing more perfect for spring than a delicate and delicious macaron cookie, and these chocolate ones are amazingly rich and decadent…


Versatile Blogger Award and Seven Things About Me

Versatile Blogger Award and Seven Things About Me…I am very honoured to say that I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award!  How cool!  I was nominated by Quirky Kay and to accept the award I’m supposed to write seven things about myself that perhaps you didn’t know and nominate a bunch of other blogs.  I wasn’t going to accept the nomination because it reminded me of those emails you got in high school telling you to pass it on or you’d have bad luck (which I never ever passed on…so I must be cursed).  But,  this type of post is not one I typically do and I thought it was a neat idea, so here it goes…


Potty Training a Two Year Old Girl

Potty Training a Two Year Old Girl…We just potty trained our toddler girl in one week.  She was showing lots of signs of readiness, like absolutely hating having a wet cloth diaper and telling us whenever she was going pee, so we figured it was time.  We barricaded ourselves in the house with lots of paper towel and laundry detergent and got it done.  It actually wasn’t too bad, but I’m glad this week is over.  She seems to have nailed it!


Checkerboard Cookie Recipe

Checkerboard cookie recipe…It’s Valentine’s Day, and in our house that means there will be a special baked treat: checkerboard cookies!  For the last few years my husband and I have a deal that in lieu of gifts for each other he cooks a special dinner and I bake a special dessert for us to enjoy together.  It’s become a really nice tradition and we like that we are doing something less commercial than typical…

Dinos and Donuts 2nd Birthday Party for Baby J

Dinos and Donuts 2nd Birthday Party…My little girl recently turned two and we threw her a Dinosaurs and Donuts party!  She absolutely loves dinosaurs, and I absolutely love doughnuts, so it was a perfect combination. And it wasn’t even that hard to throw a dinosaur party with a feminine vibe…


2018 Resolutions to be a Better Person

2018 Resolutions to be a Better Person…Being a better person is the top New Years Resolution for 2018, which is funny because that’s exactly what I planned on making my goal for this year. Last year I made Beauty Resolutions, and every year before that it has been weight loss resolutions, but I for one feel like it’s time to be less superficial and really make some positive changes in my life…
