It’s sneaking up on us . . . Mother’s Day that is! If you’ve been busy and haven’t been able to pick up something extra special for your mom or have no idea what to get her, I have just the thing! As you know, a mother’s job never ends. Even when her kids are grown. So the gift of a little R&R is exactly what she needs and deserves. I have put together a great at home DIY spa in a box that she is sure to love! Whether you decide to make your own face mask, bath bombs, and baths salts…

The dreaded doorbell. It is a mom’s worst nightmare. Have you experienced the horror of the doorbell during nap time yet? It’s not pretty. Let me tell you how it usually goes: Fussy baby needs a nap. Fussy baby won’t go down for a nap without a lot of nursing and a LOT of rocking, rocking, rocking. So tired mommy nurses and rocks (and rocks, and rocks) fussy baby until finally, FINALLY, fussy baby falls asleep. Tired mommy carefully lays fussy baby down in her crib, holding her breath so as not to breathe too loudly and wake fussy baby up. Very slowly,…

This post was originally published on Sense & Serendipity. I have been dreaming about having a magnolia wreath for about a year now. Everywhere I’ve looked to buy one, though, I’ve nearly been knocked down by the price tags. $50 plus dollars for a wreath–seriously?! No, thanks. It drives my husband crazy, but when I want something that I find too expensive, I usually find a way to make it myself. Accordingly, I found a way to make a beautiful magnolia wreath for less than $25. So much better, right? Full disclosure: I had some of my supplies on hand…


DIY Cute Herb Planters

Friday, April 22, 2016 By Jessica Tomes

When I’m cooking, I love to incorporate fresh herbs into my various recipes. (I am part Italian. It’s kind of in my blood.) But I don’t always have what I need on hand. And I will be honest — sometimes I fail to plan ahead and make a quick run to the grocery store before nap time, so then I’m stuck. I am (admittedly) guilty of texting my neighbor girlfriends to see if anyone has whatever ingredient I need in their pantries. So embarrassing! So this Earth Day, I decided to celebrate in a unique and festive way. While I have neither the time or the…


Try This: Easter Egg Bath Bombs

Tuesday, March 15, 2016 By Jessica Tomes

Can I make a confession? I am a lazy crafter. Even though I am a “mommy blogger,” I tend to shy away from projects that look too complicated or time consuming. I prefer crafts (made with or without my children’s help) that serve a practical purpose. You know what I mean; a school project, a seasonal gift for family and friends — not a sandwich shaped like Olaf. Not gonna happen. I am NOT a crafter for craft’s sake. But I do love Easter. I also happen to love bath time. So when I found a recipe for DIY Easter Egg Bath Bombs (obviously on…
