I had good intentions of getting this post out before class parties commenced, but I’m a real mom like the rest of you. I’m up to my eyeballs in last minute Christmas preparations. I’m also  trying my very best to enjoy the Christmas season with my family. Was I the mom with the most amazing pinterest inspired snack at the class party? Nope, I got trumped by a reindeer, but I made a really easy and cute treat. This would be a {Read More}

a simple recipe :: salted caramel chocolate chip bars

caramel butter bars 016

Last week I shared a healthier “cookie” recipe–one I felt was a bit virtuous after indulging in way too much pumpkin pie over Thanksgiving weekend. Well, this week, I’m sharing one on the other end of the spectrum. Nothing virtuous about it. But, I have to tell you, it. is. delicious. Definitely worthy of taking to a holiday party or cookie exchange. I love that these are a non-fruit dessert that seems to please just about everyone.  I recently took {Read More}

Interesting fact: I have teeny tiny ears. Like little bitty. And finding earbuds that fit my tiny ears is incredibly difficult. There are lots of ear buds that have different sized ear piece tips but most of them are small, medium, and large. With SonicFuel headphones, there is an extra-small pair! They also have different sized c-tips that help keep them securely in your ear. And what do you do with all those extra pieces when you aren’t using them? {Read More}

#aSIMPLEchristmas :: shopping with @eBay rocks – for many reasons


I am a big eBay shopper. Since adding our newest addition to the family, I find that my time to go in the stores and wander around until I find what I’m looking for, is non existent.

As a refresher, you can {Read More}

mindful indulgence with alter eco and ginnybakes :: review


December seems to be a time of indulgence—especially when it comes to dessert. Baked goods in the break room, cookies and egg nog at holiday parties, candy from your Secret Santa. Temptation around every corner. Thankfully with Alter Eco and ginnybakes, you can indulge without the chemicals found in most other store-bought goodies. Alter Eco uses only the best ingredients (organic, non-GMO, gluten-free and fair trade) in their treats. I was lucky enough to try some Salted Caramel truffles. They {Read More}

#aSIMPLEchristmas :: give cute, cuddly and soft clothes for christmas this year


I can’t begin to tell you how much I love adorable yet SOFT clothes for my babies!! Not only are the babies so soft and squishy, but when you combine that with an awesome outfit, total win/win!! I was sent a couple outfits from PAIGELAUREN and they are delightful!  Before I go any further, they are made the in USA!! What I noticed about this brand, they aren’t one to jump on trends of cuddly animals. They are classic and {Read More}

25 days of christmas stories… for free (nope, not a giveaway!)

Christmas Reading

So I’ve been seeing all these posts floating around about an awesome idea to read a Christmas story every night before bed. As I let my mind wander and think about how fun it would be sitting in our pajammies and sipping tea while listening to a Christmas story each night, I came to the saddening conclusion… buying 25 books to put under the tree is expensive!! I decided that this year just wasn’t going to be the year to {Read More}
