    DIY Marble Eggs

    I’m OBSESSED with these marble eggs!  I originally got the idea from a blog I found on Pinterest, and it was a total Pinterest fail.  So I tweaked the directions and it worked perfectly.  This craft is super easy, super cheap, and really pretty.  Especially for marble fanatics like me!

    Safari Party – Walt turns O N E

    I started thinking about Walt’s first birthday party before he was even born.  When we were in Africa we decided we were ready to become parents.  We had such a peace about it and knew the time was right.  So, what better theme for a first birthday party than a Safari?  Of course, I went straight to Pinterest for some inspiration.  I found a bunch of great DIY ideas for his party!

    DIY Magnetic Chalkboard

    I have always loved chalkboards.  When I was a kid, I would get so excited when my teacher would call on me to go to the chalkboard to answer a question.  When I heard about chalkboard paint, I knew I had to have that for my boys.  While doing some research to figure out how I wanted to create the chalkboard, I found out about magnetic primer.  We don’t have a magnetic refrigerator, so I knew I wanted something for Walt to be able to play with all his magnetic letters and numbers on.  This was perfect!  I was a little nervous about how well it would actually work, but I figured it was worth a shot.

    The BEST Snickerdoodle Cookies

    Mother in the kitchen baking snickerdoodle cookies while her son sleeps in her arms

    Snickerdoodle cookies are my absolute favorite!  This recipe was actually the first “made from scratch” cookies I ever attempted.  They are really easy, hard to mess up, and a definite crowd pleaser.  I’ve even gotten so confident in my snickerdoodle skills that I bake them for people at my husband’s office during the holidays.

    I have the recipe pinned on my Pinterest, so I can’t take credit for this deliciousness.  It’s from  Cookies and Cups, and I can’t begin to explain how happy I am that I found her amazing page!  My sweet Walt goes a little cookie crazy every time I make them because he wants a “big” and not a “little”. Boys…  I’m really in trouble when Oliver gets to the cookie eating stage.  I will have to start hiding a couple for myself! Read more…
