Gifts Under $25 for Age 1

Toy Gifts <$25 for Ages 1, 2, and 3!

Since I just celebrated both my children’s birthdays the past two consecutive months, I’ve still got gifts on my mind… and thought I’d do a round-up of some gift ideas less than $25 for the toddler crowd.  Here are some of our favorite toys based on age – from 1 through 3!


Diaper Bag Review: Kate Spade Denise

After my last post on my perfect diaper bag, a few of you voiced interest in the Kate Spade Denise, so I thought it would be worth doing a review!  This is my current diaper bag. I wish I had gotten this from the getgo because I think if I had, it would’ve been my [...]


My Favorite Easy Meal: Wasabi Mayo Salmon

Jaren's First Birthday-5

Jaren’s Dol | First Birthday

I previously blogged about my thought process behind planning Jaren’s dol. I wanted to keep things simple while still honoring some of the traditional elements of a Korean first birthday.  This year we decided to host Jaren’s first birthday party at a park because we needed some form of entertainment for Noelle and her toddler [...]


Sandra Boynton: Hits and Misses

Sandra Boynton is one of those authors I had never heard of until I became a mom.  I purchased my very first Boynton book, Moo Baa La La La because it topped the bestseller’s list on Amazon.  Then, I found a couple more at my local Goodwill, which were also hits… so I thought I couldn’t go [...]
