Welcome to the brand new BRE PEA!

  • I love fall and the regularity it brings, but this dreary, rainy morning has me missing our lazy days of summer and picnics with friends.
  • Well, surprise surprise we're late to the slime party. I like to refer to it as reverse-hipster-ing 😎 Brynn has been BEGGING me to make slime for the past year (no lie) and I resisted. Until now. There's something about your only kid going into 1st grade that makes you weak 🀣 #sponsored We celebrated the 1st week back at school with some πŸ’—πŸ’™ Cotton Candy Slime! πŸ’™πŸ’— You can make it with 6 oz Elmer's Glitter Glue, 1/2 Tbsp baking soda, 1 1/4 Tbsp contact solution, and some sequins just for fun πŸ’– If you're into making slime, make sure you participate in the Elmer’s Slime Games contest πŸŽ‰ Come up with your craziest color combination or grossest slime for a chance to win some awesome prizes!

  • Well, summer is over. Time to officially remember what day of the week it is 🀣 #ad All jokes aside, I was so ready for this time of year. So ready that we actually had all our school supplies bought EARLY 😲 I can't say the same for the family I saw at @Walmart with 4 kids frantically grabbing their school supplies the night before the 1st day. I had made a stop to pick up some fresh produce for Bean's daily morning banana and school lunches and had quite a laugh. Walmart makes back-to-school shopping simple and sustainable through its commitment to sell products that sustain people and the environment. Visit your local Walmart or Walmart.com for all your back-to-school shopping needs. #GreenSchoolShopping
  • Tidy home, tidy mind πŸ™ I've been binge watching episodes of Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners on YouTube and it's done wonders for my motivation to clean 🀣
  • Guess what... you'll never believe it... I actually blogged ...AND the blog has a brand spanking new look. 😯 I know right?! Who am I?! πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ Check it out and let me know what you think! [ link in my profile ]
  • "Yeah, I'm about ready for a weekend."
-Me, Monday, 11:27 AM

After such an AWESOME weekend spent road tripping for a wedding, enjoying a child-less few days, and having a lazy Sunday, Monday had the audacity to show up today πŸ™…β€β™€οΈ
  • Strong-willed children become adults who change the world as long as we can hang on for the ride and resist the temptation to "tame" the spirit out of them. This wild little watermelon sure gives me a run for my money, but I wouldn't have it any other way β€πŸ’šβ€ #shesacrazybean
