Hip Mom + Hip Baby Wrap

hip-baby-wrap-2May 25, 2017

Today was the last day of her first year of pre-school. She may think of herself as a “big girl” now and that’s ok with me as long she doesn’t outgrow snuggles with Mama. So far so good thanks to Hip Baby Wrap.  She loves her sling and so do I. I own a few wraps and this is the only one I constantly use because it’s easy to assemble. I’m plan on keeping this sweet little girl close by my side as long as I can.

Things to Do at the Dallas Zoo!May 9, 2017

On a recent trip to the Dallas Zoo, I was amazed at all the things there are for children to do. If you follow my Instagram stories, you got a front row seat to our adventures that day! Our favorite? Getting to pet and feed a giraffe!

Anyway, this isn’t the same zoo experience that I had as a child! That is for sure. We spent most of our time at the The Children’s Zoo that day and you won’t believe the activities that are available for kids of all ages.

Margaritas & Mexican Dips

Margaritas-and-Mexican-Dips-for-Cinco-de-MayoMay 3, 2017

Happy May! This month is among my favorites because of the simple holidays it brings. I adore Mother’s Day for obvious reasons and I think that Cinco de Mayo is pretty rad too. I don’t do a lot of cooking for Mother’s Day because I am supposed to be getting cooked for (are you listening, honey?) but I do usually try to cook up some fun Mexican food for Cinco de Mayo. It’s always fun to add in more tastes of Mexico to a fiesta so I’m thinking of adding an icy cold margarita and a spicy, fresh dip to my cinco spread. Take a look at the recipes we’ve rounded up for you today and consider serving these Cinco de May dips and drinks on the 5th!
