Summer Clothes for Boys

With four boys, I know how hard it can be to find not only stylish clothes, but also clothes that last for more than one kid (We love hand-me-downs!). When it comes to summer time, we love to be comfy but I also like my boys to have nice outfits for when we are visiting family or going out on family adventures.  My favorite place to shop for stylish summer clothes for boys is Gymboree!

Easy Dragon Birthday Cake

When my son was turning 10, I knew I wanted to do something special for his birthday cake.  You only turn double-digits once and I wanted his cake to be memorable.  But, when he told me that he wanted me to make him a dragon birthday cake, I thought he was joking! (He did have a smirk on his face!).  I had no idea how to make a dragon cake!  Luckily I found an Easy Dragon Birthday Cake tutorial online and it didn’t look as hard as I had originally thought and I modified it a bit with ingredients we had at our house.

Tips to Becoming a Successful Blogger

“Is it possible to be a successful blogger?”  “Do you actually make money blogging?”  “Can anyone be a blogger?” “Can you help me start a blog?” I don’t normally talk “blogging” here on the blog but these are some of the questions I hear on a regular basis.  So today I wanted to share some tips to becoming a successful blogger. My blog started as an idea years before I ever wrote my first post.  I love doing fun things with my boys and had always wanted to share them but fear, insecurity, lack of knowledge, etc. kept me from writing my first post. It wasn’t until I was on bed-rest with my 4th baby boy that I realized that my life would forever be that of a mom of boys and I wanted to connect with other moms in my shoes.  So, I put aside my insecurities and jumped into the blogging world with both feet. I have made nearly every possible mistake along the way but these are the some of things I have learned that can help you become a successful blogger. […]
