How to Survive an Indoor Toddler Craft Party / Bev Cooks

YES THAT IS GLITTER, mamas just take a deep breath. So yeah. We totally got a jump on Valentine’s Day crafting like two weeks ago because the kids WILL NOT stop singing Christmas songs. Is this happening to anyone else? Seriously, all I hear all day long, “AND A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR POOP.” Mind […]

So, as bistro week continues (the only real thing I learned about the meaning of “bistro” is that I need to grow a mustache for true authenticity. DONE. And gross.) we’re having steak and potatoes!
