strawberry shortcake dessert waffle

  Disclosure: I made this Strawberry Shortcake Dessert Waffle for a sponsored post by Lunchbox.  I have such fond memories of the ice cream truck when I was a kid. We'd listen for that telltale bell and the soft music that would play out of the truck's speaker system, grab a dollar from our mom then run out the front door to catch him. Unfortunately, my little guy won't get to experience the ice cream truck like I used to, but that doesn't mean I can't drum up that same nostalgic goodness for ... ...continue reading

Quick and Easy Yogurt Parfait with Liberte Mediterranee {PLUS, a CASH Giveaway!}

Yogurt Parfait

I used to be one of those people that skipped breakfast for the most part. I wasn't particularly hungry most mornings since I got up at 5:30 AM for work and I just relied on coffee to carry me through until I could have a midmorning snack or lunch.  Times have definitely changed - especially now that I'm expecting. I've come to realize that what they say is true - breakfast is the most important meal and it really sets the tone for how I eat throughout the day. Rather than load up on carbs in ... ...continue reading

Check out the Petunia Pickle Bottom Hideaway Hobo Diaper Bag!

Hideaway Hobo

Before I had my little guy I searched high and low for THE best diaper bag. I wanted to be a fashionable mom and wasn't thrilled about turning in my designer purses for baby bags. I ended up purchasing quite a few bags before he was born based on looks alone, but my biggest splurge cost over $300 and I was just sure it was "the one". Fast forward a few weeks - it was insanely heavy and it was just too big. I quickly retired it to the closet to be used as an overnight bag. That's the thing about ... ...continue reading
