Happy Friday

I'm trying to convince my daughter to have a build-your-own-terrarium birthday party and am looking for fun ideas to show her. Here are some that I like, especially the first one as it reminds me of summer! Do you have any favorites? { Images from Twig and Sprout Home. }

Nutella 3 Ways

My son often reminds me, "Mommy, if you would let me have Nutella for breakfast, lunch, and dinner... I would." His older sister would probably concur.

Pencil Thin Halloween Bags

These Halloween bags are fantastic! I like how the tailored shape dispenses a sensible amount of goodies for all those sweet-tooths (or at least it looks like it does), and you can neatly fit favorites like M&Ms, Skittles, chocolate chips... or try something unexpected like Lemon Ginger Yuzu Gummy Pandas. You can get a set…
