The time has come. Folks, we are taking a break…

…from forcing you to spam all of your friends on Instagram in order to enter a giveaway! HOORAY! We want to continue giving away things we love, but decided to move the action from Instagram to our space here.

So in honor of being more than halfway through January, we are giving away a few of our favorite things!

One lucky winner will receive:
1. A deliciously soft bamboo Aden + Anais crib sheet. This is seriously so lux. A treat for baby that will hopefully assist in some serious snooze time so that YOU can go catch up on American Idol or make out with your lover (ew) or bake some muffins (yum!) or poop or drink some water or moisturize your beautiful face or take a nap. Got it?

2. My very favorite candle ever ever. Voluspa found a way to jar the scent of heaven, and I insist the winner experience this fragrance at least once while soaking in a hot bubble bath. Maybe with some bath salts and essential oils. Maybe with a glass of wine. Or whiskey? Make it count.

3. Millie Marotta’s Animal Kingdom colouring and doodle book. Oh man. Just take a look at how beautiful this is. Decompress with this. Fill your inspiration tank. Mull over that questionable comment your coworker, Becky, passive aggressively dropped on you, and do so while making something that is already beautiful even more so. Finally, decide that Becky is dealing with her own stuff and she didn’t mean it. You know she isn’t a butt wipe at heart. Tell Becky the following day she looks rad and that you really like her hair that way.

4. Climbing Rose Desk Pad, designed by Michelle Morin for Anthropologie. I have grown dependent on these weekly note pads. It is so much less overwhelming seeing my to-do list spread across an entire week, as opposed to one long vertical list. Sit down on a Sunday morning with some coffee and map out your week with this.


Leave a comment in the comments section of this post answering the question, What is your favorite meal to cook at home? We want to know what you most enjoy preparing, be it breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, whatever! And if you aren’t a fan of cooking or preparing food at all, that’s ok! Just leave a comment telling us what your favorite home-cooked meal is.

That’s it! One winner will be selected at random and announced Friday.

Good luck!

About me

Hey! I’m Katie, wife to Matt and mama to Isla. If you like some things (donuts), but dislike other things (Trisha Yearwood’s Food Network show) then we will probably get along swimmingly! In March of 2015 I gave birth to Isla, and I credit my early postpartum survival to a select few things that I will share in due time. As I continue to sharpen my survival skills along this journey through motherhood, my hope for this blog is that Britney and I will develop a village here where we can connect with you, and you with other readers. Parenting is way hard. Let’s band together to find the humor.

I really love to bake breads, but apparently you can live on carbs alone. So, my favorite full meal to make is fajitas!

I, once upon a time, loved to bake, but I haven't done much since our daughter was born. My favorite is a toss up between pecan pie and gingerbread cookies.

Dinner is my fave! Crockpot meals are always great, but lately we've loved a baked honey-glazed salmon. Super easy and delish!

My favorite thing to make is pumpkin mini muffins!

My favorite meal to make from scratch is lasagna because it always turns out yummy.. BUT the *best* thing I make is ice cream! Wish I could have it every daaaay.

Souuuuppp! I'm all, let me just throw in all this stuff and walk away from my crockpot for 6 hours. I'm about that life.

I love to make homemade pizza (including my from scratch dough). It's a definite crowd pleaser, but kitchen destroyer so for special occasions only.

Reply January 19, 2016

Quiche! It always makes me feel fancy.

I am not the cook in the house. Thankful for a sweet hubs who likes to cook. But I do like to bake banana bread! One day it will be as good as my grandmothers!

Gosh, when I got thinking about it, I had a hard time picking a favorite. I love to cook and I especially love to bake! A favorite at our house is fajitas, what makes them even better is homemade flour tortillas to go along with it!

I'm not the cook but I love when Nathan makes stir fry! I also like his grilled Brussels sprouts and sweet potatos!

I love crock pot meals! This time of year I love comfort foods like roasts with potatoes, carrots and onions! I whip up some mashed potatoes and smother it all with gravy. It's seriously great!

I love making breakfast, because at any time of the day, it is delicious. Scrambled eggs, pancakes, some delicious sausage and strong coffee just make me so happy!

Anything I can make in the crockpot is my favorite..nothing makes me feel more accomplished than having dinner going by 8am!
