BANANA CRUMB MUFFINS RECIPE

Gio & I have a banana smoothie every single morning, so there’s no shortage of bananas around here! We had a few that were suuuuper ripe & hubby suggested that I make banana muffins. I found this Banana Crumb Muffins Recipe on Allrecipes.com– it had 5 stars & over 9,000 reviews (a sign I look for when I’m […]

NO COOK PLAY DOUGH

Giovanni loves sensory play. I built him a sensory table last year that we use almost every single day! Out of nowhere he asked if we could play with some “pay dough.” He loves cooking/baking with me so I knew he would love making the play dough, too. I used my tried & true “No Cook […]

GREEN SMOKEY EYE MAKEUP TUTORIAL

Hi Loves! :) Back for another #MakeupMonday, this time with a green smokey eye. I’ve been trying to incorporate more color in my makeup tutorials on YouTube so I figured I’d start with something a little less bold & go with green. I pulled this photo from Snapchat (@thelovenotes for daily fun & kiddo cuteness!) […]

EVERYDAY SPRING MAKEUP LOOK

I’m so excited to be starting up my makeup tutorials again :) This one is an “Everyday Spring” look with pink tones on the lids & a bright pink on the lips. I skipped dark eyeliner & went for a more soft and natural vibe by using eyeshadow on the lower lash line. Watch the 5 minute […]

PARENTING A 2 YEAR OLD: AM I DOING THIS RIGHT?

Time for some real talk. Our son (& oldest child) Giovanni just turned 2 at the end of February. In two short months, this age has already proven to be challenging… Add a new baby sister in the mix (born the day after his birthday) & we’ve got some real excitement going on around here, folks. […]

FIRST DAYS HOME WITH GABI

I can’t believe Gabriella is a month old already (& I’m just now getting around to writing this, ha!). Life has been pretty hectic around here though, having 2 kiddos is taking some getting used to! But I’m loving it. Just look at this girl, who wouldn’t be in love?! Her hair… I’ll never be over […]

MEET GABRIELLA ROSE!

At 11:25pm  on February 29, 2016 the contractions began. After a few episodes of Braxton Hicks, somehow I knew this was really it– BABY TIME!!!! By midnight we were on our way to the hospital. With a 45 minute drive ahead of us, I was trying to just stay calm & breathe through the contractions– […]

GIO TURNS 2 + BABY UPDATE!

I’m 40 weeks, today is my due date! This pregnancy has FLOWN by!! I know the last trimester is supposed to feel like it’s taking forever, but really it’s going by so fast. I haven’t had any recent contractions & Gabriella is head down, but that’s about it at this point. The doctor says, “Any day!” ………. […]

DIY PHOTO CANVAS

I wanted to make a gallery wall of photo canvases, but for the sizes I wanted it would cost close to $200… per canvas. Yikes! I did a little research & saw how easy it was to create your own with almost the same effect. I spent about $50 on these, between the canvases (1/2 off […]
