October Stitch Fix Review

Why hello! It’s been a while since I’ve ordered a Stitch Fix box and done a review. We moved and it was so relaxing. ::insert eye roll::  It forced me to touch everything we own (yikes – where does all the stuff come from?). I did some serious purging of my closet and decided I didn’t really need anything new for the summer.

Fall is another story, and I had to have another fashion fix. I requested a pair of jeans, some layering pieces and some casual sneakers from my stylist. I should note that this box came at the perfect time, on the day that I needed it most. The Stitch Fix Gods were looking out for this haggard mama who needed to feel like an adult again and get out of workout clothes.

Dear Moms of Only Children

This topic has been on my heart lately. I have several mom friends that have one child and they so often throw me the line, “it’s easier for me, I only have one,” or “you’ve already got your hands full and I just have the one child.” Stop apologizing moms of only children, you’ve got it tough too.

I have three kids now, but for the first four years of motherhood, I had one. Many of my friends around me were having their second child. I watched them through the transition of having multiple children, and in many ways, I struggled to relate. My world as a stay at home mom wasn’t changing, but theirs was going thru a complete overhaul. I felt a little lost.

Cereal Breakfast Bars Recipe (Gluten Free!)

Cereal Breakfast Bars

These little cereal breakfast bars are my new go-to on busy mornings. With a few tweaks from the traditional cereal bars you’ve probably seen before, they pack more protein and fiber but still taste great.

Furthermore, these can easily accommodate gluten and/or nut allergies. Simply ensure that you use a gluten-free cereal (Cheerios are now gluten-free) and an alternative nut butter, like almond butter or sun butter.

In addition, these little bars are fun to make with your kids because they are so super easy and don’t even need to be baked.

How to Make a Solar Night Light

Today I’m sharing the easiest little DIY project that you can do with your kids. I came up with this solar night light idea because my four-year old daughter is scared of the dark and we’ve tried so many things to help her sleep at night, but she still sleeps with her bedside light on. I don’t think this is good for her so we worked together to make a little solar night light that she could put on her nightstand instead. She had so much fun putting it together and of course my boys wanted one too.
