Be My Valentine

Happy Valentines Day everyone!! I love this day, and when you have littles it seems to be ten times better. As a child I loved all the fun and creative things my mom would do for us at home! Now with my own little peanuts I am trying to make these "Special Holidays" memorable for them. Which means I can easily get caught up in the "perfection side of planning and making things "perfect", but my children have the sweetest way of bringing me back to earth to savor these messy, adorable, can't get enough, fleeting moments. This will be my last year with my oldest, Aviyah, at home with me all day. So I plan on soaking up these memories with her every chance I can! With that said we are having a pretty "low" day around here (which will include lots of chocolate, outside play, picking out some fresh flowers for our house and naps, fingers crossed on that one)

This year we are 1,000 miles away from our families back in MN so the ladies and I made some valentines to send back home for a special "i love you". They had so much fun coloring notes on the insides and putting as many stickers possible on each card :)

Love these books I was able to snag for the ladies as part of their Valentines.
Reading is a huge hit at our house as of late.


We were just introduced to this adorable shop!
 Pippa & Indy they have the cutest bows and the are all $4!!! 
This heart burst is so stinking cute. Check them out.

I also love these Nutella Heart Pies, recipe here, they are so easy to make and are fun for toddlers to help out with!

Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

Hope you all have an amazing day!!

Easy Kid Friendly Flatbread Recipe

Good evening everyone! This is my first official "post".  I hope you all find this space to be uplifting, creative and fun!  I have wanted to start a blog since before Aviyah, my three year old was born, but due to the craziness of life and frankly fears, of who knows what, I held myself back.  My little family of 4 recently made a huge transition and moved down to North Carolina.  This move has given me a "fresh" start per-say and I want to take advantage of the unknown and start creating.  I am finding that most dreams lay on the other side of your fears.  So here we go!

Today Aviyah & I made some home made flat bread to eat with our ginormous tub of hummus I was suckered into buying at Costco (you know the samples they give you and you end up buying the 10 pound can of salsa because your starving, have no self control and realize you have not eaten anything today!)  Here is a really easy and kid-friendly recipe.

Easy Kid Friendly Flat Bread 

2 cups of flour
dash of salt
3 1/2 TBSP of butter
3/4 cup of milk
Dash of chopped up dry rosemary 

Mix flour salt & rosemary together and set aside in large bowl
Heat butter and milk until melted 
Pour butter & milk mixture into flour and mix with your hands 
(Aviyah loved this part!)
Let sit at room temperature for 30 mins
Than heat non-stick pan 
Grab some dough and make them into good size balls

 Roll them out into thin pieces

Fry them in pan, about 30 seconds on each side or until a few "bubbles" form 

and there you go!

Slap some hummus on there and you have a great afternoon snack!

Hope you're having a happy week
