A big Thank You to Fruitshoot for sponsoring today’s post. I remember growing up lunchtime was very serious business ~ I went to a private school and there was NO WAY we could play with our food…not even poke at it but now that I’m a mom and I homeschool my kids lunch is fun. Sometimes lunch is just a sandwich cut in triangles or leftovers from dinner the night before but sometimes lunch is something creative.  Since it’s springtime I {Read More}

I am a soda girl…I love it.  Always have.  When I was little we had soda at home but it was just for the adults {i.e. mostly for Mom ~ it was a perk for giving birth!}.  The only time I really had a chance to have any was at my Grandma’s house…her house was the epitome of kid fabulousness….a wooden candy box on the wall by the door to the basement {always full}, fresh baked goods from several local {Read More}
