We are ALWAYS on the hunt for healthy snacks to get us through the day. I swear that Charlie says ‘I’m hungry’ 50 times a day, and I can’t even imagine what it will be like once Max can talk, that kid can EAT! And since I’m as crazy busy as the next mom, I need snacks that are quick … View The Post
The holidays are here, and with it comes a whole lot of BUSY! Did you know that the average person spends a whopping TWO WEEKS worth of time getting ready for the holidays??? With gifts to buy, dinners to prep and parties to attend, let’s face it, time is of the essence (isn’t it always when you have kids?). It’s … View The Post
