    DIY 4th of July Flag Shirt {And Our 4th of July Fun}

    This year we stayed home and hung out at our house for 4th of July. I didn’t want to make a big production of it like we did for Little Brother’s birthday party, but I still wanted the day to be special. So I planned a few little activities to do around the house, and we had a few people over to just hang out and relax. My favorite activity of the day was making these cute DIY flag t-shirts. I found the idea at the last minute the day before 4th of July, but we were able to whip them together easily on Independence Day morning after breakfast. Supplies:…

    How To Plan A Thomas the Train Birthday Party

    Since Little Brother loves just about anything that “goes”, we decided a Thomas The Train Birthday Party would be the perfect choice to celebrate his 3rd birthday. I did a lot of planning and searching for ideas, and I’m sharing them here, so you can easily plan a Thomas the Train Birthday Party too. Let’s get planning! Scroll on for more details! Entry The first thing our guests saw at our Thomas the Train Birthday Party was Thomas on the Track on our front sidewalk.I found the idea for the “3 YR OLD CROSSING” sign and duct tape tracks both on Pinterest. The tracks take a lot more duct tape…

    A Day Out With Thomas

    Recently, we went to “A Day Out With Thomas” at the Colorado Railroad Museum. I actually chose Thomas as Little Brother’s birthday party theme with this event in mind since I already had the tickets. Little Brother loves Thomas even more since his birthday, so it was great planning! There were several activities to do and trains and cars to explore before our departure time. If you love trains, this is the place to go! They even had a scavenger hunt of sorts with a prize at the end. The Railroad Museum allows you to bring a picnic lunch, so the boys did that while we picked up some barbecue…

    30 Before 30 {Update}

    It’s been over three months since I started out on my “30 Before 30” adventure. Yikes! 3 months and I haven’t blogged a single thing since then. Maybe I should have picked “blog more consistently” as one of my “things” to complete. The truth is that life is busy and sometimes (well, most of the time) I’d rather spend time with my boys. I’m not a fast writer. I think about every.single.word…so it takes some time.   Well, anyway, I’m going to pull out my little “30 Before 30” journal here and give you an update. Here goes! 1. Consign at a children’s consignment sale Done! I think I may do…

    Goodbye Twenties {30 Before 30}

    About a month ago, I realized I would be turning 30 in six short months. Whoa. 30. Saying goodbye to your twenties can be tough for some. I’m determined, however, to celebrate it. I’ve been on this earth for almost 3 decades! Doing anything for that long is something to celebrate. So I decided to come up with a list of 30 things to do before I turn 30. I asked my friend and family for ideas, posted on my Facebook page about it, and searched Pinterest for ideas. Some are just little things (like getting rid of all my maternity clothes), and some are going to take a little…

    Keep ‘Em Busy {Summer & Road Trip Fun}

      One of my favorite (and most popular) boards on Pinterest is my “Keep ‘Em Busy” board. It’s all about keeping your kids busy, and if you have at least one kid like mine, you’ll understand the importance of this. He’s always moving, so life is just a little better when he’s busy. Anyway…back at my other blog I shared several posts with activities for little ones. Since we’re still in the summer months but maybe getting to that point of wanting school to start, I thought I’d re-share a few of those posts with you today. Give you a little inspiration to keep those kids busy for the rest of the summer…

    Adventures In The City

    It’s been over seven weeks since we made the trek from Colorado Springs to the Denver area, and we’ve had many an adventure since then! The Big Guy is working enough for the both of us, so I am now officially a stay at home mom. It’s something I’ve wanted from the moment I laid eyes on the Little Man though I didn’t always realize it. That being said, being stuck in a two bedroom apartment with a 3 year old day after day is not ideal, so I’ve made it a point to get out and “do stuff”. There is sooooo much to do up here, and a lot…
