Party Favors For Kids’ Birthday Parties that Don’t Create Clutter

Party Favor Ideas

I have a recurring conversation with my closest mom friends every year at this time. We all agree that Birthday Party "goodie bag"-type favors are the worst. And yet, WE ALL GIVE THEM OUT. We hate them. We hate it when our kids bring them home.

Go Green With Kids

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #BringingInnovation #CollectiveBias One thing I love about kids is that they are so observant about the world around them.

Why PB&J Chia Seed Pudding will Change Your Life | Chia Seed Recipes

Chia Seed recipes

I've been reading about how FABULOUS Chia Seed Pudding is for months now, but, to be honest, I've been extremely suspect.  I felt like Chia pudding was one of those things healthy bloggers said was delicious, but really tasted like sludge. I'm looking at you, Wheatgrass. So I've been really reluctant to waste perfectly good Chia seeds (they ain't cheap!) and almond milk on this experiment. Finally, after eating one too many bags (yes, I … [Read more...]

Disclosure: My family received a free Mission Kit for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own.  When my son first started kindergarten, I was hesitant about the amount of computer time students were getting.
