10 Home-Cooked Family Dinners in 20 Minutes or Less!!

by Heather Monday, September 22, 2014

Easy

Like all moms out there (except maybe Martha Stewart) there are days I find myself just standing there starring blankly into the fridge without the slightest idea what we will eat for dinner. On those days it seems all I can think of are dishes that will take at least an hour to prepare. We have had the ingredients for lasagna (a favorite around our house) sitting around for weeks because every time I think about making it I have all of five minutes before the kids bedtime!

Now I know what some of you are thinking... why don't you just plan better? Well... easier said than done and some days just get away from you. As hard as I might try it just happens, but that's ok! And I have a wonderful solution for those nights that you wonder... do they have to have dinner?

Don't Let The Summer Slip Away, End It With a Bang!

by Heather Monday, September 8, 2014

Easy

Every year when summer comes rolling in it seems that we only have a very limited time to enjoy it. In June everyone is thinking about July 4th and in Utah we also celebrate July 24th as well. And yet somehow it doesn't quite feel like summer has started yet. Then August come and we are bombarded with back to school ads that never seem to end and are constantly mocking "your summer is over and now you will pay!" (literally). It's hard to enjoy those last few weeks of summer fun when we are consumed by the huge list of back to school items we "have to buy".

During all the shopping the song: My Sweet Summer just keeps playing over and over in my head only rubbing it in, and just when you think you can relax and really soak in at least a couple hours of summer it happens, it hits you in the face... like a big giant pumpkin, PUMPKIN MANIA! You start to see all your friends on Twitter and Instagram with their Pumpkin Lattes and frappuccinos; like it's a status symbol for all stay at home moms. So I'm here to say... ENOUGH! Let's slow this down! Are we celebrating Halloween this month? Did Thanksgiving move to September? I didn't think so. I don't know about you, but I am going to milk it for all it's worth. Summer doesn't officially end until later this month, and when it does end I am sending it off with a bang! I will be officially ending summer at the Summer Ends Music Festival, a 3 day event along the Tempe Beach Waterfront! That's right what better way to end summer than with some amazing music and the warm backdrop of Tempe AZ.

Fall can wait just a little longer because it's still time for some summer fun with some amazing artists!

Epic line up, am I right?

It doesn't get much better than that! I have already seen American Authors and Fitz & The Tantrums this summer at two other concerts and they were amazing! I can't wait to see them perform again! This is the last music festival of the summer that you will get such amazing bands and an awesome mix of different sounds. A music festival isn't just a big concert, it's an experience; one that you will have memories of forever. Not only will you experience some great bands but Summer Ends Music Festival has even more to offer with arts, crafts, sponsors booths and more!

Activities & Attractions

:: A wide variety of local food vendors will be on-site.
:: Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.
:: A number of ATM’s will be on-site to provide cash services.
:: Artist merchandise will be sold by all artists performing
:: “Free water” stations
:: Typhoon Misting stations
:: Water cannon tower
:: Print at home tickets for easier entry into site
:: 3d game truck (gaming challenges throughout the day; $10 entry fee for chance to win $$$)
:: Local Art Gallery

So who's with me? If you would like to hold onto those last few moments of summer, if you didn't appreciate that giant pumpkin that hit you in the head... fight back and end the summer on your terms!

Head over now and grab your tickets for the summer ends music festival before they are all gone!

See you there!

Need Your Kids to Follow Instructions? Don’t Ask. Tell.

by Heather Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Easy

A year ago, I committed what is known as a “mom fail” (basically any false move committed during the act of mothering). Preparing my then-2½-year-old son to go out in the morning for a play date, I asked him, “Do you want to go to H.’s house?” Emphatically, he said no. “Well, we have plans; he’s expecting us,” I amended lamely. My son burst into tears, and no matter how I tried to spin it, he was adamant. Maybe he was tired; maybe the dark, cloudy morning visible from our windows was too uninviting. Whatever the case, I was now in the awkward position of having to drag him, kicking and screaming, down four flights of stairs (we lived in a walk-up) while also toting my younger boy, then an infant. So I canceled the play date (thus committing a “friendship fail,” too, all in one morning).
