Fuller House EXCLUSIVE Sneak Peek and a Trip Down Memory Lane #StreamTeam

I have to start this post by saying that Full House DEFINED my childhood. When they announced that the show was ending  in 1995, 10-year-old Jordana actually wrote passionate, heart-wrenching letters to the studio and the producers begging and pleading that they please please please reconsider. Didn't they know how much the show meant to kids like me? How important it was for us to have role models like the Tanner Girls to look to? How else would I learn my way through being a tween- Blossom was Read more [...]

Anyone who knows me and anyone who has ever read my blog knows just how special books are to me. They always have been. They always will be. Growing up, some of my best friends in the world were the characters I met in books. It is so important to me to try to instil that same love for reading and for books in my own children as they grow. I absolutely LOVE when my daughter comes running to me with one of her many many books and asks, "Mommy, can you read this to me?". I will generally drop whatever Read more [...]

Well, here it is... Baby Boy Kujo's official blog birth announcement! I've been both eager and anxious to write this post for the past 2 weeks. On the one hand, I am so very excited to share our joy and love with the world. On the other hand, I've been on a rollercoaster of the highest emotional ups and downs since he was born 17 days ago. In the end, I think I will be writing two separate posts in order to work my way to the hard stuff, and to do justice to the joy we felt at welcoming our Read more [...]

As a kid, there was nothing better than Saturday night sleepovers with a background of "Snick". [For those who didn't grow up in the States, Snick= Saturday night Nick(elodeon).] So many of my childhood memories are tied to cracking up through All That and then waiting anxiously for the spooky, creepy cherry-on-top at the end of the night, Are You Afraid of the Dark. My best friend and I were scary story junkies (and big scary story readers)- we just couldn't get enough of being spooked out of Read more [...]

Happy Earth Day everyone! Recently my daughter has been taken up with a new activity she created out of nowhere- "I want to touch the tree." I guess with the Spring thaw and the snow clearing the grass, she's noticing more about the things around us when we're outside, and she's becoming more curious. Whatever the reason, it's absolutely adorable, and I will let her hug as many trees (literally) as she would like!   I am so glad that Netflix is offering all kinds of fun and educational Read more [...]
