Nobunny’s perfect DIY mug

Wednesday
nobunnys perfect diy sharpie mug

I was inspired to create this post after reading Anna Dewdney’s book Nobunny’s Perfect for my kids.

However, there are days when it can be a little overwhelming and it can feel like we can’t handle everything at once.

Easter GIVEAWAY! + 3 month diaper subscription!!

Tuesday
incredibundles gifts giveaway peter rabbit books toys diaper subscription (5)

With Easter quickly approaching, it’s the perfect occasion to look […]

As much as I like the extra space where we live in Galveston, we have limited storage for our groceries. I decided to start cleaning up and organizing our cabinets for groceries.

The cool part about these homemade containers is that you can put whatever you want in it. Plus, you can label them with the FREE printable name tags, which you can download below! Keep scrolling for a tutorial on how to create this simple container option for your […]

Family Weekend at Kemah Boardwalk

Thursday

Over the weekend, we went to Kemah Boardwalk for some family time with my mother-in-law, who was visiting. We’ve brought our kids to Kemah a few times before and they love this place. The sights, sounds, and fun activities make them so happy! Weekends are the perfect time for us to spend time with Brent since he works all day during weekdays. Kemah is a great place to bring your kids and family as there are different rides and attractions for the kids, which even adults can enjoy. They also have waterfront restaurants and a playground area for the kids […]
