Looking for the best beignets in New Orleans? I’ve found them! Soft fluffy donuts with a crispy fried outer shell covered in mounds of white sugar. The beignet may very well be one of the best culinary masterpieces to come out of the United States. At least in my opinion. I finally, FINALLY had a chance to try one of these incredible treats during our trip to New Orleans and they definitely lived up to their reputation. Cafe Du Monde is the most famous spot to dine in New Orleans. It is the original French Market Coffee stand since 1862 […] Continue reading →

Royal Sonesta Pool

New Orleans is one of those cities that I’ve longed to visit for years now. When an opportunity arose for me to embark on the new Carnival Sunshine cruise ship for it’s inaugural sailing in New Orleans, I was thrilled! This would be our chance to visit one of the most talked about and popular cities in the United States. We decided to arrive a few days early in order to really experience the city, however my procrastination got in the way of accommodations and we happened to be visiting during a very busy time. There were a few conferences […] Continue reading →


With this gorgeous hot weather comes dirty shoes with mud caked soles, wet clothes and sand filled car seats. Thankfully, they have the best pair of shoes to combat all of the above. I’ve always said that the best pair of shoes are the ones that you can throw in the washing machine and dryer. Pediped sent us samples from their summer Adventure Line and my three kids have worn them quite literally around North America. From California and Michigan to Ontario, Canada, these shoes have been worn in all conditions and yet they wash up beautifully. Although these shoes […] Continue reading →


After the huge success of Mamas & Papas Armadillo, they decided to introduce an ultra-compact Armadillo City this year. Measuring 28.3 x W: 19.6 X D: 9.4″, the Armadillo City is the perfect stroller for urban living and is designed to squeeze into the tightest of spaces. The stroller offers smaller wheels and front and rear suspension make navigating city streets and public transport a breeze, while its amazingly narrow and lightweight frame offers a surprising amount of wiggle room with full recline for your little one, to ensure a consistently comfortable ride. There’s even bags of shopping basket space […] Continue reading →


Whenever I find a healthy recipe that my whole family (toddler included) loves, I feel like throwing my hands in the air like Whoopi Goldberg in Sister Act. Hallelujah! It’s a miracle, I swear. I wasn’t expecting quinoa stuffed bell peppers to make the list of healthy foods my little ones love, but oh my goodness did they love these. The mild turkey sausage and quinoa filling is flavorful but not at all overpowering for developing palates. My son even loved the taste of the sweet, softened bell peppers. It’s a great way to use up extra quinoa if you […] Continue reading →

Dog Car Seat

Yes, it exists – a dog car seat that is! While looking for a comfortable travel solution for our little Coton de Tulear puppy, I came across a product that will hold her weight both now and when she’s full grown. The Kurgo Skybox Dog Booster Seat that allows your dog to look out the window while still saying secured. I’m not a fan of a loose dog in the vehicle while I drive, which is why we’ve always had ours secured in a crate. The problem with a crate is that it takes up a ton of room and […] Continue reading →
