(image credit: flickr) There’s something about this time of year – we start feeling a bit cheated, everyone’s doing, like… fun stuff! We deserve more! While the weather is still pleasant here in Utah – and this means we have not yet turned into the life-sucking dustbowl of death that is summer – you still […]

Teach Your Kids Survival Skills – 5 Fun “Let’s Pretend” Games. My Zoe- who’s 8- and my teenager Zachie love to go camping. They love the mountains, the beach, they’re both strong swimmers, so I kind of slacked off on survival skills. What happens if they get lost? What if we end up displaced because […]
DIY St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Tree I’ve learned that no corner of the house goes undecorated in Zoe’s Holiday Reign Of Terror. When I cleared our Halloween decor this year, my 9-year-old was inconsolable until I put up the Christmas finery. No sooner was that down when I was required to present Valentine’s Day. Now […]
Kid-Tested (And Kid-Approved) Jokes. I’m not going to lie, I looked these up with my fourth-grader as self-defense. There’s only so many “jokes” that don’t go anywhere that I can take, and now that my Zoe’s ten, she is the Queen of Truly Terrible Puns- she can barely get the joke out before dissolving into […]
Corned Beef & Cabbage With Mary Helen’s Magnificent Mustard Sauce – A meal so amazing you’d leg-wrestle your grandma for the last bite.

(Image credit: TheBittenWord) Peppermint Crunch Cookies It’s this time of year when my Zoe and I develop an unnatural craving for all things peppermint. (White peppermint kisses have moved from a craving to an addiction that I might require rehab to remove. Sadly, there are no rehab centers for peppermint kiss addicts.) However! The humble […]
(Image credit via Flickr: Simpleinsomnia) 5 Fresh Ways To Celebrate New Year’s Eve. Erin here… I have to be honest–years of hosting New Year’s Eve events as a radio “personality” leaves me with a loathing for the Big Drunken Bar Fest. It’s depressing being the only sober one in the room and trying to give […]
(Image credit: Pexels) “I Need HOW Many Lights?” A Guide To Decorating Your Christmas Tree. I know I’m not the only frustrated Martha Stewart wanna-be who’s done the Decorating Walk Of Shame to the store at midnight, buying 16 more packages of lights for the tree because I ran out halfway through. And you can’t […]
(Image credit: Bruce Mars) Controlling Christmas Expectations: Free Printable “I Want” Tags I’ve battled expectations from my eight-year-old Zoe, (and thank you, parents of classmates who give bikes for Easter and an Xbox for getting a flu shot!) and this is the time every year we start really, really controlling what she watches. Every kid’s […]
