Did I ever tell you I was named after Wendy from Peter Pan? (Well, really, all Wendys were, since that’s the first recorded use of the name.) I’ve always had a special place in my heart for the story, so I’m really excited to announce that there’s a new movie coming out featuring some of my favorites! (Yay Tink!) Continue reading

Sometimes, especially during the holidays, all thoughts of healthy go out the window and food is welcome just because of the memories is brings. This recipe – for an old-fashioned candy made from a simple potato and lots of sugar – just might be the one recipe that holds the most nostalgia for me. My grandmother used to make it every year for my dad, and even this many years later, it still doesn’t feel like Christmas without it.
When I started exercising again after Elliette’s birth, I found myself in need of some new clothing and equipment. Since comfort was top of mind, I started searching for yoga pants. (Mom staple, right?) I knew the Gaiam name from some of the gear I already had, but when I looked them up I found SO much more than I expected!
For many of us, a happy holiday starts with great food.
This is the time of year to bust out every top notch ingredient, pull your best kitchen tricks out of your sleeve and get the good dishes dirty. It’s also about baking the very best you can, with the spirit of the season in your heart, and sharing with those you love. That’s why holiday food gifts are tippy top on my short list of things I love to give (and receive!) Continue reading
It’s official. I’m the best mom ever. My son told me so.
We’re trying (and trying, and trying…) to get him to stay in his own bed a little more often, so I thought maybe some fun new bedding would do it. He’s big into firemen these days, so I turned to Beyond Bedding.
We already had a set of their twin bedding and it has held up really well for us, so we didn’t hesitate to go back. As soon as my son saw it, he said “Mommy. Why are their firetrucks on mine bed?”
I said, “Because I thought you would like them.”
Then the hug happened. One of those hanging-around-my-neck bear hugs that doesn’t stop, along with those words any mom loves to hear: “You’re the BEST MOMMY EVER!”
…and guess where he slept the last two nights? Yup. Under the firetrucks.
I’m sure this is just one of many ways to be the best mommy ever, but if you want to give it a shot, look up Beyond Bedding. They regularly release new baby bedding sets designs, such as chevron baby bedding, nautical baby bedding, and other modern crib bedding styles. They also offer made-to-order bedding sets and custom teen & toddler bedding designs.
I like the fact that Beyond Bedding has great prices and frequent sales, meaning that I can switch out our bedding more often based on the kids’ changing interests. Like right now, my son is totally into foxes, and trying to figure out what they say. Go figure, right? I’m actually kind of surprised this fox bedding set is still in stock!
Since Beyond Bedding is an authorized retailer of Sweet JoJo Designs, I never worry about quality. Plus, there are tons of matching accessories available for any set you choose. Since my kids are sharing a small room right now, I’ve been searching for matching bedding sets to use once Baby Girl moves out of her crib. What do you think of these?
Then they BOTH might call me the best mom ever!
No matter what you decide on, Beyond Bedding offer $7.95 flat rate shipping to the U.S.
