When I was a kid, my brother and I always got to open one present on Christmas Eve. It was usually a new pair of holiday pajamas! Now that my husband and I have two kids of our own, we continue the tradition! Except for one major problem… our Christmas Eve is SO busy! We spend it with my parents first and then we head to his parents’ house. By the time we get home

Turtle Toffee Cheesecake recipe

What’s on your holiday dinner menu this year? We’re pretty traditional and don’t change it up too much year to year, but I like to try new variations. One year, instead of plain cranberries on the table, I made brie and sugared cranberry crackers. I’ve added chocolate to my pecan pie. I spiced up the “cheese and crackers” appetizer with spinach artichoke dip.

This season, I partnered with Save-A-Lot to try something new! My friend Tiffany shopped with the goal of keeping this UNDER $25—Save-A-Lot makes it easy, you could definitely shop there and

Teaching our children to give: what’s your reason?

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Influence Central for The Salvation Army. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

5 (cool) FROZEN gifts

I don’t know about your kids (or YOU), but this family is FROZEN obsessed. I might be a little embarrassed about how many times I’ve seen it and how I know every word to every song…. “Let It Go?” Obviously a favorite in the shower.

So clearly FROZEN made our holiday wish lists, as I’m sure it’s on many kids’ lists this season! But WHAT are you getting?! There are so many FROZEN gifts out there… how to choose?! I love Target (who doesn’t?!) so I partnered with them to bring you these hot

Christmas Traditions: what do you do with your family?

I didn’t realize how many Christmas traditions we truly have until I started going through my old photos! We’ve continued on traditions from my own family, my husband’s family, our Norwegian heritage, and even traditions with our friends (Ugly Sweater Party!). Now that we have two little ones (almost 5 and 2.5 years), we’re starting our own, too. I partnered with Walmart’s #ChosenByKids event to share these with you…
