Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Mother’s day is just around the corner! I love this day to celebrate mamas and womanhood. Here are a few ideas for any lady on your list.

mothers day gift ideas1. Personalized charms of loved ones initials are adorable don’t you think? THESE necklaces are perfection, and THESE bracelets are equally cute and a steal!

2. I am DYING for a silhouette of Jane. Her little profile kills me and I’m pretty sure all mothers feel the same! THESE custom silhouettes are under $10!

3. A morning brew can be even better in a pretty monogrammed mug. Love THESE from anthro.

4. When in doubt a house plant or flowers are always nice!

5. Have you seen the new hobnail candles from Bath and Body Works (HERE)? Totes adorbs!

6. Don’t we all need a little incentive to put on mascara day after day?  THIS cute bag would help!

7. Dying to try THIS new pale pink polish, ‘baby’s breath’.

Happy early Mother’s Day friends!

Gluten Free Malibu Chicken

Friday, April 24th, 2015

I feel like a winner when a gluten eater loves one of my gluten-free dishes!

Here’s a favorite we are loving in our house…

boxwood clippings gluten free Malibu Chicken Ingredients:

4 chicken breasts

2 slices gf bread (udi’s is my fave)

1/4 c parmesan

1 tbsp garlic powder

2 eggs

4 slices cheese (any, I like muenster)

4 slices deli ham

fresh pineapple

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a baking dish.

To make breadcrumbs place bread, parmesan and garlic powder in blender/food processor and pulse. Salt and pepper to taste.

Beat eggs in a shallow bowl and place breadcrumbs in another shallow bowl.

With a fork, dip chicken in beaten egg and flip so chicken is coated. Next, move to the breadcrumb bowl and repeat so chicken is coated in breadcrumbs before moving to the baking dish.

Repeat with all chicken breasts and bake for about 35 mins.

Place ham, cheese and pineapple on top of baked chicken and broil for 5 mins.

This dish is so versicle and can be served with anything. I like to add some kind of dipping sauce…even just ranch or honey mustard.

Hope you likey!

Quiet Bag

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Church, meetings or special events…there are those special times we need to keep the little ones quiet.

It’s all about the art of distraction and a designated ‘quiet bag’ ready to grab works wonders.

Here’s what we’re towing around…

1. Snacks and water. We know how it feels to be cranky pants when thirsty or hungry. A snack bag of cheerios and our fave lollacups keep the girlies amused for a while when meetings run long.

2. Links. The best toy ever!

3. A cute tote to carry it all.

4. Plastic photo album. The girls love flipping through these and looking at pics of the family.

5. Mini board books. THESE ones are a family favorite…those illustrations!

6. A diaper or two + wipes.

7. Finger puppets. These ones are hand-me-downs, but THESE are an amazing deal.

8. Straws and plastic utensils can double as a toy to keep the babies occupied for a few minutes.

Do you have any great tips for keeping babies amused on the go?
