7 Day Switch Up with Viva® Vantage®

7 Day Switch Up

A Sweet Cinnamon Roll Weekend

Cinnamon Rolls

When Nana comes to visit, breakfast is way more fun around here. She whips up chocolate chip pancakes for the kids’ breakfast the night before, having her batter ready first thing in the morning.

How to Plan the Best Summer Birthday Party Ever

How to Plan the Best Summer Birthday Party

Sliding, splashing, jumping, playing. The Stow boys recently turned 7 and 5  (I can hardly believe it really) and we have been known to throw one heck of a rager according to neighborhood kids aged 2 – 9 years of age. True story. The truth is though, I always felt bad for my two boys […]
