Relaxing Cotton Candy Bath Bombs

Let me just tell you how these yummy smelling cotton candy bath bombs have saved me recently. Its that serious y’all.

If your kiddos are anything like mine, then bedtime can be a real struggle! My little people aren’t quite ready to stop experiencing the day at the same time that mommy just needs to go sit with a glass of wine and binge netflix, haha! After much googling, my sweet husband and I started doing a bedtime routine with them to help prepare them for sleepy time.

Part of that routine involves a warm bath, which for some kids can be a battle. What better way to get them willing to get in the tub than a colorful yummy smelling bath bomb?  Read More →

Mac & Cheese for One

I was going to make this post a little more adult oriented, like, “Here’s an easy lunch when you don’t want a ton of leftovers!” BUT, my inner mama is about to show, haha! My 3-year-old daughter tends to wake up around 3 a.m. a few times a month because she has to go potty and is also “starving” as she puts it.

Easy Peanut Butter Balls {VIDEO}

Peanut butter balls

If your kiddo’s are anything like my girl, then they love helping out in the kitchen any way that they can. Even though most of the time, her helping me is a little unpractical and sometimes mostly gets in my way, I still like to include her any way that I can.

Most if the time the recipes we end up making are boxed brownies or a boxed cake (for simplicity sake). Cake after cake, and brownie after brownie however is a little too much sugar for an already hyperactive 3 year old to be consuming just to get some mommy time.

One of her favorite homemade goodies that is way better for you than cake is peanut butter balls. Its just a few ingredients, easy to make, and most importantly to me, its easy to clean up. LOL Read More →
