If you follow me on Instagram, I shared a new product on my Insta Stories I recently came across and couldn’t wait to share with you! If you’ve been following me for a while now, you know I’m a mom to three kids and always looking for not just the hottest new products for moms to share with you, but telling you WHY. I’m not one to fall into the trap  of neeeing every new thing that comes on the market, but I’ll tell you what, I wish I had this termo 4-in-1 baby thermometer way before now! ‘Tis the season of flu and colds...

It’s not very often I sit through a movie and feel like they literally hit the nail on the head in many ways pertaining to real life issues and trials. It’s even less often that movie features a war story where I really feel like my life can apply to what is being said. My husband is not a war veteran. In fact, I have no ties to the war at all so going into this movie, I never thought I’d be able to relate as much as I found I could. Let me start by saying, I am a huge, huge fan of Sarah Drew and Justin Bruening. Like...

I’m sure most of you have heard of the Build-a-Bear “Pay Your Age Day” fiasco going down at mall’s nationwide right now. We went to our mall in Charlotte, NC this morning. I wanted to share our experience based on the things I observed and our experience. I was expecting it to be chaotic. My friend and I planned ahead as soon as we decided to go by letting the kids browse the website and making wish lists and calling our store ahead of time to learn they were opening early. However, I had NO CLUE this would be...

This post is sponsored by Stella® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. This summer, I’ve been winging it. Winging each day with the kids. Winging what we’re going to do, what we’ll eat – you name it. This afternoon, I couldn’t wait to get in my kitchen and just create. This summer, I’m all about fresh produce and ingredients and making fun and different recipes to share with my family. I’m not normally one to come up with killer original recipes… I usually leave that to...

Living just outside of Charlotte, NC has it perks. Three hours from both the beach and the mountains. Big city opportunities with small town daily life. Movie theaters, bowling alley’s, parks, & pools galore! Basically, anything we need is right at our fingertips. Including a fun family getaway to Great Wolf Lodge! We were invited to a Media Day of Play last week and we took full advantage of such an amazing opportunity! We arrived at the lodge at 9:00am and stayed almost until they closed the water park for the day! Lucky for...

It’s been good long while since you’ve heard anything from me. While I’ll give you more on that and what’s been soaking up my time the past several months later, I’m super excited to be back and partner with our friends at Star from Afar to share something so special for this Easter season! You may remember a few years ago hearing about the Star from Afar and I’m sure you’ve spotted my pictures on Instagram during the holiday season too. I was so thrilled to partner with them again and even more...

TOUCHDOWN! A few weeks ago, we threw a football tailgate party for our friends. Anyone who knows our family, knows football season is taken quite seriously around here, so I took this task seriously. Having three kids though, makes my party planning technique a little more difficult these days, so I turned to my friends at BJ’s Wholesale Club for the best options. BJ’s recently completed a survey to find out favorite tailgating snacks in the NC region. I took these stats and created my spread based on what I knew our guests...

We’ve been back to school for several weeks now and the never-ending chore of packing your kids lunches has begun. Since my husband and I both despise packing lunches, we’re trying a new approach this year and getting the kids involved! I let them come with me to pick out their favorite back-t0-school lunchbox items at BJ’s Wholesale Club. This way, they’re getting what they like. The assortment of allergy friendly and healthy items is endless and when we shop in bulk, I only have to go once every 3-4 weeks. With...

    As my kids get older; I can’t help, but wish they could stay small forever. Isn’t that every mom’s wish? I try to savor the time with them we have at the end of each day more and more everyday. Even more now that Lavery is in Kindergarten. Even though I love to give each child their own one-on-one time, our family has had to get really creative and intentional with our family time together to really make the most of the little hours we have as a family each day. Dinnertime is one of the only times we have...

Well its official.. school is in session here at the Crowe’s Nest! Our little man started second grade yesterday and our girl heads to Kindergarten tomorrow! Where has the time gone!? Both over the years and this summer.. it flew by! I know we start back earlier than others, so I wanted to share something fun we started this year in prep for heading back to the books so you guys can use the idea in your homes in the upcoming weeks! In an effort to get into routine around here (and get our son reading to us nightly,) I thought we...
