It’s that time of year! You know, when you go outside and you can’t feel your face. Even here in the Carolina’s, it gets down below freezing and I wonder why we don’t just move to Hawaii or some tropical beach somewhere. Unfortunately though for this mom, even when it’s 20 degrees outside, I still have to take my kids out and go to school, dance class, and the grocery store. Now that my bigger two are old enough to take their coats on and off themselves though, that part is a little easier, but having an eight...

I feel like we’re in three different stages right now with our kids. My big man is officially a big kid and doesn’t really need his mom anymore now that he’s almost seven. My older daughter is in the stage where she THINKS she doesn’t need me anymore, but she really still does then the baby is staring at her two older siblings with eyes wide and wishing she could be like them. That being said (and thanks to my friends at Silikids, MAM, b.box baby, & pediped for sharing some of their signature products to...

With a new year comes new resolutions. Following through with dropping those 10 pounds you promised yourself you would, eating less sugar and more veggies, making a vow to work out for at least 30 minutes four days a week… sound familiar? The month of January almost always revolves around health & wellness for both our bodies and our minds. Me? I decided to switch it up a little this year. While we’re trying to make a bigger effort to be more healthy, I also wanted to really make prayer more intentional in our lives. It’s...

Christmas is right around the corner and if you’re like me, you’re now running around like a chicken with your head cut off to snag all of the last minute things needed to pull off all of your holiday traditions. This year, we aren’t traveling when we have most years in the past, so I’m forgetting so may little things we’ll want to have on hand this year. From baking cookies for santa and neighbors, to having on hand what we’re eating for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and making sure we’re stocked...

Having two daughters, I really want to start special traditions to share with them while they’re young that they’ll cherish forever. My oldest daughter, who is four also wants to be like mommy all the time. She likes to wear makeup, put on high heels, and show off sparkly jewelry, so it was a no brainer to add something flashy she can wear to her Christmas list. I love the idea of getting her a charm bracelet. She already loves mine and ooh’s and ahh’s over the gorgeous charms, so I thought why not get her one...

When I came across the Star from Afar, I was so excited to check it out. The day it showed up my doorstep to share with you all, I could hardly wait to start it with my kids. Having three young kids and wanting to instill in them the story of Jesus and why we celebrate this season is so important to me. I want my kids to grow up thinking of Christmas a Jesus’ birthday and being thankful for the gifts he’s given, but I also want them to have the traditions and fun memories that I had growing up too. Since my kids range from...

  I love this time of year! Holiday baking, wrapping presents, bright lights, and tinsel galore – we are C-R-A-Z-Y for Christmas in this house! To celebrate the season, I decided to start a new series, The Best  Crowe’s Nest – Crazy for Christmas! Even though these next few weeks are sure to be hectic, I’m going to try to update as much as possibly with our favorite holiday recipes, tips for wrapping, perfect gift ideas, & more! I’m kicking it off with my tips for designing the perfect Christmas...

Tis’ the season! The lists have been set for a while now and the shopping is in full swing in our house.. we’re gearing up for our little babe’s first Christmas and as a family of five! With one more kiddo in the mix means an even longer Christmas list, so I’m relying on sweet deals from BJ’s Wholesale Club to help me check my items off my list.     BJ’s Top 10 Toys is sure to contain at least one thing on your kids’ lists this year. Our little lady has been watching the Olaf commercial...

  It’s so easy to get sucked into the madness during the holiday season. Sales, doorbusters, buy one get one free; falling into the trap of buying too much while forgetting the whole gift of the season is to spread love and joy to the people you love. Especially when you have young kids, it’s easy to forget why we celebrate Christmas in the first place. Every year I try to instill fun new traditions and activities to share why we celebrate Christmas with my kids. This year, I found this adorable itty bittys Nativity...
