Taste of France at Home

I’ve never been to France but it’s definitely on my bucket list. But planning a vacation to another country can be quite expensive. So why not bring France to your home. Today I’m talking how you can host a wine tasting party at home with French wine, butter, and cheese. No need to spend tons of dollars to do this. I’ve never done a wine tasting before and I was definitely excited to do this when I received these French wines. I had my best friends and my parents over to help me taste the wines. 

Sweet Talk Me Cream Floral Dress + Q&A …

Sweet Talk Me Cream Floral Dress One of my favorite things about blogging is getting to know the people I follow. I’m sure you’re the same way when it comes to who you follow. I wanted to do a Q&A and have you guys ask me the questions. I posted this on Instagram last week and I got so many questions that I had to break this post into 2 parts. You guys asked so many great questions. 

Lessons I Learned As A Mom

Being a mom is hard. There have been times where I question myself if I’m even doing the “mom” thing right. And to be honest there is no right answer for that. I never wanted kids to begin with. I hated being around kids when I was young. To me, kids were annoying and obnoxious. Sorry, that’s the truth. When I first found out I was pregnant with my oldest, I was so nervous. I was only 19 so I was just still a teen myself. Like how in the world am I going to raise a child. 

Home Decor: Spring Inspiration

Spring is here and with all the changes I’m doing in my apartment, I felt like I needed to do a Home Decor Spring Inspiration post. Right now my living room feels dark with the red couches I have and black furniture, so we’re doing a coffee table, tv stands and end tables from scratch to fit the “Rustic Farmhouse Style” I want. We are planning to get couch slip covers but I haven’t really found the ones I want. 

Mommy Essentials with Alley & Rae Apparel

As a mom of boys, I always have my hands full. I feel like my house is a mad house every day with the boys so of course I never have time to fully get all cute.

These essentials are my must haves and I constantly find myself using every day. 

Go To Midday Snack with Yoplait Yogurt

All opinions are mine alone.  Every day my morning is pretty chaotic. With having to get myself ready, get the coffee started, wake the kids up for school, get them ready/fed and I pack their lunches. I tend to forget sometimes to have breakfast or any at all. I’m sure other moms can relate. You forget to eat because you get so distracted with everything else that is happening around you. But I no longer have to worry about missing or skipping a meal thanks to Yoplait Yogurt. My kids take yogurts to school in their lunch boxes because they’re receiving 20% of their daily calcium so why not have some for myself as well.
