If you're here, then your probably sitting at home with your kids who have been released from school, wondering how you'll ever survive...not the virus...but your toddler. It's ok, I got you. Check out so of the things you can be doing to bust the boredom with your toddler.


Read a favorite book: Read 1 or read 15, as many as they'll let you. Let them join in by asking them what's on the page, having them search for and ide...

I'll spare you your sanity by cutting out the dialog about what a weird/crazy/scary time we find ourselves in and just get straight to the point. Whether you're self isolating because you or a family member are showing symptoms, or you're choosing to be globally responsible and practicing social distancing, the fact of the matter is...we're all overwhelmed by the news and need something to do to keep ourselves sane and safe! F...

Where the Wild Things Are seems to be an extremely popular choice as the theme for a boys first birthday. Maybe because the tag line "Wild One" lends itself so well or maybe because all 1-year-old boys are actually wild. Either way, it's great because there is tons of inspiration for this theme, making it easy for you to DIY most and find anything else you're looking for on places like etsy! If you're here because you are look...

The hashtag #milestomagnolia is an understatement in my case as I traveled 4,669 miles all the way from the northwest of the UK to Waco Texas. Since I've been living in the UK for the past 2 years, I actually missed out on the whole Fixer Upper HGTV gold and it wasn't until a visit to my parents this past fall that I discovered, fell in love with, and binge watched it all. Sadly, I only caught onto it after the series already...

If you're here, then chances are you've heard of the Dock-A-Tot and you have questions. Whether you're expecting, desperate for more sleep or gearing up to be gift giver of the year at your next shower, you'll want to know what you're getting before you spend semi-serious cash on a big pillow! 

How I heard about the dock-a-tot 

I first looked into the Dock-A-Tot after a blogger I follow had her baby. She swore by two items for g...

So how is it exactly that I met my British husband? You asked, and now I'm answering. I get asked this question on a pretty regular basis. I guess mostly because people are curious how a midwest girl ended up living in the north west of the UK. 

Believe it or not...a LOT of conditions had to be JUST right for that chance meeting. I'm not kidding, there are so many details that if they'd be changed ever so slightly, I'd have nev...

I am going to start by mentioning (incase you didn't notice already) that I am not a blogging guru, so I have never and likely will never claim to know all the ins-and-outs that I'm sure so many of the successful bloggers know. Now that I've put out that disclaimer, I'd like to share with you a few apps that I've stumbled upon along the way that have helped me do things like plan my Instagram grid, track my blog traffic, great...

It's that time again when we take a few minutes to access where we are in life and reflect on the past year with posts of our top memories using hashtags like #solong2018 in preparation for #newyearnewme. We all hold ourselves accountable to different goals each year, some we stick to but let's be honest, most we don't. This year I'm setting myself what I think are attainable goals that will add value to my life in 2019.

Stretch marks are probably one of the things I dreaded most with pregnancy. I wanted to do everything I could do set myself and my skin up for the best chance to grow a tiny human without any stretch marks to prove it. In all of my research, I had read that stretch marks are hereditary so if your mother has them, there is a chance you'll get them too. I guess despite this fact, I was able to avoid them, even though my mom got...

There's this formula we all think our pregnancy is going to follow. The morning sickness, followed by crazy cravings and the cute bump, "glowing" skin and finally with you pushing your beautiful baby into the world in a bespoke robe with this perfect "I woke up like this" look. The experience later to be shared on Instagram with professional photography quality pics. That's a lot of pressure! And let me tell you, we've got pre...
