Each year after we carve our pumpkin, we make sure to save all of the seeds inside so we can make roasted pumpkin seeds! They are a yummy, healthy snack, that even my toddlers love!
There are so many great ways to make them, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorite recipes here…

Last night, I was having a total “off” day as a mom.
All day long, my 2-year-old was being a crazy person, literally destroying the house every time I turned my back and even doing the classic kid cliche of unrolling an entire roll of toilet paper and ripping it into tiny shreds. The baby wouldn’t nap, and I had several work assignments due that I just couldn’t focus on. There was so much laundry I was drowning, and I had to make a cake for my mom’s birthday and even though my husband had the day off, he was busy with his own stuff and I felt that familiar breed of overwhelmed mom resentment growing.
I finally finished my work at 11 o’clock at night (after picking a ridiculous fight with my husband over his TV choice in the background, of course), put the baby down after feeding her, and crawled into bed. When she woke up a mere 45 minutes later, seemingly up for the night, I wanted to bawl.

Soren has extremely sensitive skin, and we’re always combating some type of flare up — anything from eczema to diaper rashes. After Soren’s surgery in August, he got a horrible diaper rash that took some time to clear up, and ever since then, it sometimes flares up here and there.
Thankfully, we’ve found a couple of extremely helpful methods to help prevent icky rashes before they get out of control.

Before I became a mom, I thought that I would instantly bond with my baby from the moment of conception. I thought for sure there would be some magical feelings that would be felt only by me and my baby. I anticipated his birth because I just knew that we would have this amazing unspoken bond.
Well, I was wrong.

Some days I feel like I have everything in order: The boys are napping simultaneously, the kitchen has stayed clean since breakfast, and I actually have makeup on! Other days, it seems nothing is going the way I planned for it to go — and for someone like me who loves to be in control, this can be overwhelming. On days like that, I feel very fortunate to be able to call a friend who is also a mother and ask for some advice.
I have gotten so many awesome tips from my mommy friends that I thought I should share their top 5 tips with you!
