My kiddos love sidewalk chalk. I thought chalk ice was a fun substitute for a hot summer day!

Summer is approaching quickly and I am always on the hunt for the best sunscreen for my little lady to use. Along with swimming almost everyday, lake visits, splash pad play, we also try to go to the beach once a year and keeping her skin soft and burn-free is extremely important to me. A couple of years ago I would have just grabbed whatever sunscreen was cheapest on the shelf but I am really trying to be more conscientious of what I put on our bodies. I really love the THINK DIRTY APP. Using this app, you can scan your sunscreen, lotion, bug spray, etc to see how safe they actually are. The majority of sunscreens that you find at your local grocery or drug store are usually full of questionable ingredients and known carcinogens. I am not saying that I won’t use whatever is offered if I have forgotten to apply but I do try and use what is best for both her and me.

I can’t believe we are already thinking about teacher appreciation gifts. Summer is going to be here before we know it! I am sure you have heard about the new Trader Joe’s that opened last month; I love running in there and grabbing their cookie butter, fresh flowers, etc. This easy and inexpensive teacher appreciation gift is a great option for busy families and Moms, like myself!
I had a friend grab me a couple extra jars of so I could do this. I have 3 kids (with one on the way!) that have at least 2-4 teachers each so teacher appreciation gifts need to be affordable and easy – because, that’s a lot of teachers!
In October my sweet niece turned 2 years old. My sister, Veronica and I went all out for her first birthday so this year she wanted to keep it pretty simple and sweet with a donut themed birthday party for family and a handful of close friends. We threw this party together in just a few short days but it turned out adorable! This party proves you don’t have to spend a lot of money on an event to make it special!
