If you’re looking for a way to make your Easter brunch extra special, look no further than these adorable and delicious hash brown egg nests. They’re the perfect treat to munch on while the kiddos rummage through their Easter baskets and run around on egg hunts. With a side of ham or bacon and some sweet spring fruit, you’ll have a hearty brunch that the whole family will love. And to make things even better, the hash brown “nests” can be made in advance. Just pop them out of the muffin tin and into the freezer for up to a […] Continue reading →

manduka travel mat

I have my preference when it comes to yoga mats, they have to be sticky and immovable. The Jade Yoga mat is my favourite when it comes to yoga and any kind of floor work, but it’s too bulky to tote on a plane. Technically you could bring it with you as a carry-on, but when you’re traveling with three children, an extra carry-on is out of the question. Last year I invested in Manduka’s eKO SuperLite Travel Yoga Mat. It’s foldable, provides a sticky surface and can be tucked into our luggage without taking up much room. It also weighs less […] Continue reading →

Kids Traveling Disney Social Media Moms 2014

It’s here! Disney Social Media Moms 2014 has officially begun! Several years ago, my family and I made a quick trip to California to visit Disneyland. It was short, but magical and left us wanting so much more! We vowed that one day we’d visit yet again, this time with our son who wasn’t born at the time. You can imagine how thrilled we all were when we received an invitation to the Disney Social Media Moms conference as it just happens to be held at Disneyland this year!  After years of trying to plan a trip, this incredible opportunity had […] Continue reading →

car seat recall

There’s a massive recall that was just issued a few days ago, so check your car seats! Evenflo issued a voluntary recall in coordination with the U.S National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) for their select 2011-2014 convertible car seats and harnessed booster seats (1.3 million in total). The seats are identified below by name, model number prefix and date of manufacture as each of these seats uses a harness crotch buckle which may become resistant to unlatching over time, due to exposure to various contaminants (like food and drinks) thus making it difficult to remove a child from the vehicle. These convertible […] Continue reading →


They gained ground with their Trunki invention several years ago, and now, the Trunki brand will be jumping into the U.S. market this month with their brand new PaddlePak, a water-resistant backpack for children ages 2+. The nice thing about this pack is that it prevents damp items from leaking through after trips to the pool or beach, or keeps contents inside dry throughout the trips. The bags are made from lightweight and durable material and features an ingenious roll top seal that uses the same innovative technology as adult outdoor bags. It features a patent pending break-away safety buckle, reflective trim, the […] Continue reading →

finish detergent

Well, we did it. We broke down and bought a dishwasher. Yes, that’s right in the past 10 years of marriage, 3 kids and 2 businesses later – we’ve done all of our dishes by hand. There was really no need for a dishwasher when it was just us and then when our daughter came along, I was in a blissful state of housewife/new motherhood and was happy dipping my hands in hot soapy water. My husband and I would chat as he dried the dishes – it was fun. 8 years since that day and well, it isn’t so […] Continue reading →

10 outfits sure to impress the easter bunny

Hey, friends! I’m Melissa and I blog over at Love Like Johnny and June. I’m here filling in for one of my favorite gals, Lacy, while she’s on maternity leave. I myself had a baby not too long ago. My little guy (Henry!) is just five months old and we’re totally stoked to celebrate his first Easter. Although he won’t remember much about it, I’m still excited to take him to Easter Mass and to hide Easter eggs for him…and then help myself to all of the candy. Of course all of this celebrating calls for a festive outfit, right!?  Which […] Continue reading →
