Where would we be without dear old Dad? I happened to have gotten very lucky in the dad department, so when it’s time to give him a gift, I try to make it a good one.

If you’ve got a dad like this one, raise your hand. Grab a few of these great gifts for dad and show him the love.Continue reading
Halloween preparation is in full swing here.
I’ve planned our “Boo” bags, I’ve lined up our parties, I’ve bought our candy (first round, which will likely be eaten before the actual night), and the costumes are ordered. Speaking of parties, we’ll be taking a few bottles of wine, along with one batch of cupcakes, to a few parties this year. I am so excited because Halloween is EVERYTHING.
Halloween is the most wonderful time of the year. Okay, fine it’s one of the most wonderful times of the year. It is definitely the most fun time of the year. Between the parties, the trick or treating, the movies, and the Boo Bags, Halloween season is pure fun. The tradition of Boo Bags took off a few years ago, and it’s one of my favorite things to do.

Ahh, teenagers. They’re awesome. Sure, they have a reputation as eye-rolling wonders who can’t put their phones down, and some of that is true.

Let us know in the comments and we’ll include in an upcoming list.
Kids are so super awesome, and they deserve super awesome gifts. Toddlers, however, are… tricky. They’re still super awesome, but they’re also not always easy to please. We have kids, we know what works. We think this list of gifts is spot on for any kid under the age of four. We tested this list of toddler gifts out recently (and left a few off the list that didn’t cut it).

Need an easy gift idea for a new pet? Read on. I’m knee-deep in all things puppy.
