It is always special. Even though EVERY day I am so grateful to be a mom. AND SO grateful for my Mother!
Taking a photo a day is hard! There is so much mommy has to do! Even if I am constantly staring at this child, my camera or phone is not always near by. BUT chugging along, even if the fair share is still instagram photos.
I am back to work, so we fell a week behind in sharing. Yikes. This will be an adjustment. BUT of course I know I can do it.
I’m not sure I have the energy for tips this week:
Tip 1: Just when you think you know everything about having a newborn, you don’t. You CAN get more tired and more desperate (take all the help you are offered and save up that good feeling, for the days when you wish you had the help).
Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I cannot think of a better time to get your craft on. So I sought out a few super cute crafts that look pretty do-able for those of us who aren’t as craft-inclined (ahem, me!).
I’ll start with this tutorial on How To Make A Tote Bag: The No-Sew Version from Atta Girl Says. Being that I’m terrible at sewing, this option jumped right out at me. Isn’t that bag awesome?
Next up are these SOUPer Simple Vintage Garden Hostess Gift from Sadie Seasongoods. I love a good pun and while this is an awesome hostess gift, I think it would be such a sweet Mother’s Day gift as well. Another great thing is that you can make this in whatever mug fits your mom’s style best.
The Painted Cut It Out Frames from Albion Gould are so very pretty and would be the perfect home for one of the family photos that Chelse took for your family.
Who doesn’t love the elegant, preppy style of Kate Spade? While that price tag isn’t always attainable, you can still capture that same chic look with this Kate Spade Rose Bowl DIY Copy from Coconut Head Surviving.
While this last one isn’t exactly a craft, I am loving this “Angel Mother” Abraham Lincoln Quote Printable from Bombshell Bling. I think it would be such a great gift if you printed and framed it it a really pretty frame!

I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for an excuse to eat delicious food, especially Mexican food (although to keep it real, we shouldn’t need an excuse, because yum). Cinco de Mayo happens to present the perfect opportunity for me to whip up something delicious and sip on margaritas. So I thought I’d take a look around the blogosphere and put together of round of delicious looking recipes so that you have plenty of tasty options to feast on next Tuesday!
First up we have this Mexican One Pot Pasta from My Big Fat Happy Life. What is not to love about combining Mexican food with pasta? It’s a win/win:
Next we have Slow Cooker Beef Barbacoa Tacos with Fresh Pico de Gallo from Better in Bulk. Barbacoa is the Mexican answer to Bar-b-que and this couldn’t look more delicious:
These Spring Enchiladas from A Life From Scratch look so incredibly tasty. My enchilada-loving husband was drooling as he when I showed him this photo and it looks like it’s a skinny recipe as well so you really cannot go wrong:
If you’re looking for a Slow Cooker Taco Meat recipe that features chicken look no further than this one from The Life Jolie (that’s me!). It is super easy and comes out tasting great every time:
Being a seafood lover, I got really excited when I saw this recipe for Tequila Citrus Shrimp from Home. Made. Interest. What an amazing flavor combination- I cannot wait to try these:
While we’re on the topic of Tequila (and my unbridled love for it!) this Tequila Mojito from Garnish with Lemon looks like an awesome twist on your traditional mojito and perfect for a little Cinco de Mayo happy hour:
These Baked Chicken Flautas that I had contributed to Organized Home Organized School are made healthier by baking instead of frying and they are really kid-friendly as well:
What is Cinco De Mayo without Nachos? I’m particularly smitten over these 7-Layer Conco de Mayo Nachos from A Savory Feast. Don’t you just want to dive in?:
