by jessicaturner on September 18, 2014

With being pregnant this year and our family having an insane amount of travel in the next 6 weeks (Matthew is going out of the country twice + has a conference and I have two conferences), I knew that this was not going to be a  year of handmade costumes for our kids. Recognizing your […]

Life is incredibly busy, especially lately. I hardly know if I am coming or going. I can’t remember the last time I went to Target (and y’all know how I love Target!). I haven’t needed to go to Target in part because I almost exclusively use cost-effective subscription services for all our regular home needs […]

Reading with Our Kindergartener on the Kindle

by jessicaturner on September 12, 2014

Sometimes I still can’t believe that Elias is in kindergarten. It seems like we were just bringing him home from the hospital. But here we are. Kindergarten.

I went back to our 2012 photos and found a few in case anyone is looking to make a simple little girl costume this Halloween. Felt […]

by jessicaturner on September 9, 2014

This summer my aunt turned 60 and our family threw her a surprise party. I was in charge of decorations, which were mostly provided by Minted. Since my forte tends to be baby showers and kids’ parties, it was fun to do something a little different. Minted has a huge party decor collection. With being […]

Elias, Kiwi Crate and a FREE Kit for You

by jessicaturner on September 3, 2014

Every month, Kiwi Crate is one of Elias’s favorite activities. I have tried a lot of subscription services, but usually I cancel them after 3-6 months because I feel like they become redundant, or I don’t really NEED the product. This is not the case with Kiwi Crate. We have been subscribers for more than […]
