This is my super cute niece, Olivia. I'm totally jealous of her dress-up organization set up. Is that weird?
Check it out along with a few other organization hacks for families #ontheblog (link in bio).

This is what a sugared up and very happy birthday girl looks like after bowling her heart out πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

Target, I love you. And so does my unicorn loving birthday girl. πŸ¦„β€οΈπŸŽ―

This is six. πŸ˜πŸŽ‰πŸŒˆπŸ¦„

This is a girl who REALLY knows how to relax #teachmeyourways

Daddy's away so mommy gets the bed all to her... nope, nevermind! 😜😍 #eventhecatclimbedin

For the mommas out there who are completely helpless in the Doing Girls Hair Department (πŸ™‹πŸΌ), I have blog post up today with a SUPER easy hairstyle that I can do while this girl bounces around the room yelping about how much it hurts when the brush is nowhere near her head πŸ™„πŸ˜‚

Snow day got me like...

The girls are bored and I have no interest in stepping out into the frozen tundraβ€”so egg-free loaded cookie dough concoctions it is! πŸͺ

Since it's #womenshistorymonth , I put together a blog post that's full of books with feisty, bad ass girl characters.
. . .
Warning: reading these stories regularly may result in raising strong-willed, opinionated girls who are feisty as hell and not so easy to raise. But they’ll grow into girls who will stand up for what they believe in and who will refuse to be pushed around. And I’m totally ok with that. πŸ’ͺ🏻
