I'm so happy Spring is here! The weather has been amazing around here lately. Our garden plans are coming together. We even broke down and bought a rototiller, because we are serious gardeners now.

I've been pinning everything from small Easter table settings, to gorgeous fancy-shmancy wedding…Continue
'She will hate you when she is 20 if you don't do this for her now.'
That is the comment the doctor told my friend in front of her daughter at the last visit. What was she referring to? Hormones to make her daughter grow at more 'acceptable' rate for society. Keep reading, it gets even better.

Did someone say birthday cake? And in a muffin for breakfast? Yes please!
I was excited to read one of the recent Rachael Ray Magazine’s to find a handful of fun muffin recipes that I had never thought of before. To me, when I think muffin, I am stuck on the classic blueberry, raspberry, pecan…you get it. We have tried a zucchini muffin before for the kids in trying to “sneak in” the veggies. I was impressed how well that turned out. Then this weekend, we gave birthday cake muffins…Continue
