I've said it before and I'll say it again (and again) I'm no chef. I mange to make dinner (most) nights and so far we haven't died from food poising ::knock wood::, but I'm not a person who looks at a random assortment of ingredients and says "ah-ha!". I would get kicked off of Chopped in the first round. I have however, found ways to bake chicken that are super simple and very delicious.
This first year of my baby's life is really flying by. It has been really interesting to see which toys she gives her attention to as she gets older and older. Previously I've shared her favorite toys from when she was a 4 month old and when she was a 6 month old. Today I'll share what she loves as an 8 (!!) month old.
When thinking of planning a trip to Vermont it is usually planned for when the snow has fallen. But there is so much to do in Waterbury, Vermont when there isn't snow on the ground! The hubby and I took a trip in the spring for a "Baby-Moon" weekend getaway and we had a great time. Here is a list of places that we visited in Waterbury, Vermont.
I have no problem admitting that I like to "Keep Up" with the Kardashians. I was never a hater, I admire all of their work ethic, especially mom-ager, Kris. That woman knows how to spin anything into gold and quite frankly, I do not shame her hustle one bit. She's made stars out of all of her children and they are each making bank which in turn makes her bank (you know she gets her 10%). I love the show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. They're all gorgeous, they're all hilarious and they're relatively real, they might have higher dollar amount valued items but they crack jokes at each other's expense, get frustrated and cry when they're sad just like the rest of us.
Planning a Bachelorette Party usually entails heading to the casino or nearest city for an epic bar-hop/pub-crawl. For me, I wanted to go to a spa and ride roller coasters. Where was I going to be able to do both of those things? Hershey, Pennsylvania!
Valentine's Day Crafts
Happy Valentine's Day! In preparation for today, I went searching and found plenty of pins for fun crafts with the baby! We're working on finger painting but making hand and foot prints are still easier (for the record, foot prints are the easiest).
StitchFix: My 2nd Fix
Two months ago I signed up for StitchFix and wrote about the pieces I received, the items I kept, the items I sent back and the overall experience. You can read that review here. I received my second fix this month and I have to say, I loved this Fix even more than my first!
Reading to children is important for their development and a great way for parents to form a strong bond while also decompressing from their long day. Speaking from experience, reading the same books over and over again, though fine for the little ones becomes pretty redundant for parents. Which is why I like to use upcoming holidays as a reason to refresh some of the books in our rotation. Valentine's Day is coming up and what better gift to give your littlest Valentine than a few new books?
Despite how the title of this post sounds, it is not actually MY sippy cup, but my daughter's sippy cup. She just isn't able to articulate why she has selected the one she has to be her favorite so I am here doing that for her. Now that we got that awkwardness out of the way I will reveal and review her favorite and other ones that did not make the cut.
It's Super Bowl Sunday! While I'm not a fan of either team that is playing tonight I am a fan of eating at the viewing party. Kick off is 6:30 PM EST which means it isn't too late to get this STUPID easy, chili in the Crock Pot. There's a good chance you already have all of the ingredients you need.
