Hearty Potato Soup


There is nothing better than a hot steamy bowl of potato soup when you’re sick. It’s the perfect comfort food. It’s also perfect for those cold  fall days like we are currently having. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of when my mom would make my brother and I Hearty Potato Soup. It's a recipe that I hold very near and dear to my heart. However, it's one that I would love to share with you because I know you will love it as much as we do.

Eggplant, or Aubergine depending which side of the pond you reside on is a vegetable that is often overlooked. This purple veggie is often seen as slimy and soft, and many of us avoid cooking it because it can be a bland addition to the table.

Nut Free Safe Candy List






































It's almost Halloween and that means it's time to start planning out what you're going to give out to Trick or Treaters. Most of you have probably already bought your Halloween Candy, and some of you are probably last minute shoppers. When planning for Trick or Treat, please keep in mind that there are several children who have serious life-threatening food allergies. My son is severely allergic to peanuts and tree-nuts. Halloween can be so scary for Food Allergy Kids and their families, so please be considerate of them. Set aside a few safe snacks for those children who have food allergies, so that they can enjoy Halloween while being safe too. I can't speak for the other food allergies, but I can for Nut Allergies because that's what we struggle with. This is a list of Nut Free Safe Candy that I feel is safe for my son and other nut allergy kids.

With only a handful of days before Halloween, it’s fair to say that parents need to finally get ready for a child-friendly Halloween party. The typical Halloween party tends to be focused around going out and adult themes. As a parent, you need to be creative to create a Halloween-themed party for your kids and their friends.

Additionally, the party is the perfect excuse for simple games and togetherness in the safety of your home. But how do you throw a last-minute Halloween party that keeps kids excited and entertained?

Paperless Post: A New Way to Send Invitations

Paperless Post is a company that designs customizable online stationery, to show that communication can be personal and well-designed regardless of the medium. Do you send Invitations and Greeting Cards very often? Do you rely on paper invitations or prefer to send them online? I love sending mail, especially greeting cards during the holidays.

However, I have found a new way to send invitations and online greetings with Paperless Post

Nightly Routine for a Productive Morning



As a student, part-time employee and a mom of a Kindergartener my days are quite busy. It seems there are never enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished. Often times I wonder how I will get everything done, but by the grace of God it gets done.

I love Mexican food, I really do! It's one of my favorite types of food. If I could afford to dine out at a Mexican restaurant a few times a week, I definitely would.

Summer Vintage Boho Style


* This post contains affiliate links, however, all words and opinions are my own.

I have a confession to make. I used to not care for the Boho-Chic Style. I never cared for the free and flowy fabrics, but now it's all I want to wear. I guess when you get to a certain age and especially when you become a mom; you want styles that are great for comfort and coverage. My absolute favorite style that I have worn this year has to be without a doubt this Summer Vintage Boho Style.
