Okay - first thing that I must admit...I love the name of Jen Hadfield's blog - Tatertots and Jello!  If you are a mom, or anyone who at some point has to feed a child on a regular basis, chances are tater tots and jello have served as a main staple for at least one meal.

Parents can be amazing.  

A good parent is there to listen, guide, instruct, laugh, cry, and offer unconditional love.  The way a parent shows their love is many faceted:  it can be a funny card in the mail with a $20.00 bill for “something fun”, an unexpected car wash after a weekend visit (my Deed is notorious for this sneaky little trick), or having all of your clothes cleaned, mended and pressed.

My husband Scott and I refer to these as “the silent things” that people who love each other do for each other.  Something that often goes unnoticed, but makes a huge impact


What is it about cereal that is so addicting?  I'm not sure if it's just me, but whenever there is a box of cereal in our house, I end up eating it in like 2 days.  I do this thing where I fill my bowl, put in my milk, and then have to keep going back to the box to fill and refill until all the milk has been used up. Needless to say, I don't buy cereal often.

Recently, I was asked by one of our large (and favorite) Event Planning Companies in SF to design a craft for an event at a Brazilian restaurant.  Given the restaurant we wanted to create something that reflected Brazilian culture. It need to be fun, festive and colorful - a sort of “Carnival” feel.  Our budget was slightly limited so I turned to my beloved Dollar Tree for inspiration.   That’s where I spied these inexpensive “tiaras”, basically a foil headband with a cardboard back.

My mom is an amazing seamstress.  She used to sew all my clothes, as well as my dolls' clothes when I was a kid.  Sadly, I never really inherited that talent.  I can sew out of necessity (think buttons, mending holes, and the occasional hobby horse head), but it’s not my forte.  I much prefer using duct tape.
