It’s National Pretzel Day – Go ahead and celebrate!
You know you want to.

It’s National Pretzel Day – Go ahead and celebrate! <br /> You know you want to.

Today, April 26, is National Pretzel Day! I’ll take any old reason to celebrate, especially when there are salty snacks are involved. How did the lowly and oft overlooked pretzel get it’s start? I took a little cruise around the internet and found that most agree the first pretzels were created around 600 AD by Catholic monks using left over dough which was twisted into the pretzel knot we know today. Some say the knot shape … Read entire article »

(Almost) spring break – Liz’s rant

(Almost) spring break – Liz’s rant

We thought you’d get a kick over Liz’s little spring break mishap from last year. Enjoy! The chaos began about 8:15 last night, with a call from my brother: “Is Colton still up? Why isn’t he in bed, yet?” First, I’d like to point out that even on school nights, Colton is never in bed by 8:15. But I played along. “He’s on spring break this week – burning the midnight oil.” “Uh… you may want to  double check that.” What did … Read entire article »

Kate’s Escapades – Spring Break Frolic

We think this post from a few years back is worth a Second Glance, especially since it’s spring break and we’re off frolicking with our kids. Enjoy! Ahhhhh…spring break is finally here. Seems like we’ve been waiting for it since the day after school began last year.  A break from the routine of alarm clocks, bed times, endless homework, car pools, nagging.   I am as excited as the kids are.  It’s hard work to parent … Read entire article »

Liz’s Top Seven ways to use boiled eggs

Liz’s Top Seven ways to use boiled eggs

You know the drill. Easter is over. Chocolate bunnies sit in their baskets devoid of ears, pieces of shiny fake green grass are strewn from one end of the house to the other, and no fewer than two dozen eggs bide their time in the refrigerator, asking themselves but one thing: “Will we be eaten? Or tossed to the curb with all that shiny fake green grass?” Which is where I make a confession. As much as … Read entire article »

Peep-a-licious! – Kate’s Escapades

Peep-a-licious! – Kate’s Escapades

Since Easter is only days away, I’ve been out stocking up on my Peeps supply. Heaven forbid I leave my Peep shopping to the last minute, and to my horror, find the shelves bare of the ooey, gooey, sugary marshmallow treats. I would be forever disowned as head holiday empress of my kingdom. I love me some Peeps! Do you love Peeps, too? I’ve gathered a few peep-a-liscious ideas in case you’d like to impress your peeps … Read entire article »

Subway Art – Easter

Subway Art – Easter

I’m really loving this new decorating trend called Subway Art. I suppose it’s got it’s name because it mimics the graffiti found in the subways, only this version is a lot less messy and won’t land you in jail. I first noticed Subway Art in friends houses around Christmastime.  I let the idea roll around in my brain for a few months and voila! out … Read entire article »

Picture Me a Monday – I don’t like jokes

Picture Me a Monday – I don’t like jokes

Yesterday was April Fools’ Day, which happened to land on a Sunday this year. That means it was a family dinner at my parent’s house along with my brother, sister-in-law and two young nephews. Hooray! A bigger set of victims for this year’s prank. Here’s what I discovered…don’t mess with a 3-year-old’s food. It will not go well. There will probably be tears, much loud screaming and perhaps a tantrum. And by probably and perhaps, I … Read entire article »
