Happy Earth Day


We spent our Earth Day at the park and did a nature scavenger hunt with the mommy group. 

We ended our day at the Flint Riveraquarium with a few friends. 

Our favorite place.

Strawberry Picking

We had a fun breezy afternoon at Calhoun Farm in Ashburn, Ga. We picked strawberries, tried some organic honey, watched a pig race, took a wagon ride into the forest to visit the animals and has the most delicious strawberry lemonade. 

Gave a fake deer some kisses 

We are making strawberry whipped cream with the strawberries we picked. My recipe is below. 

Strawberry Whipped Cream 
1cup heavy organic whipping cream
1-2 tablespoons sugar 
Half cup of diced strawberries 

Using an electric egg beater whip the heavy cream until stiff,
add sugar one tbs at a time you can add more of it is not sweet enough for you. 
 Using the electric egg beater blend the diced strawberries with the fluffy whipped cream until it turns a light pink.

Hoppy Easter

We had such a fun Easter this year.
Vida wasn't walking  last year so she was unable to egg hunt but this year she was all about filling her basket as fast she could until one egg opened and she saw what was inside and she sat down and ate the candy and didn't get anymore. 
So we had to help her out. 

We dyed eggs with the mommy group 

We read some Easter books.

On Sunday we headed to Church and has a delicious lunch there. They put together another egg hunt for the kids and Vida got a few more eggs. 

The weather was perfect and we ended the day at the park with friends.

An Echanted forest, a unicorn + Freshly Picked Moccasins

Giveaway runs from April/2- April /5 winner announced Monday, April 6th

"Children see magic because they look for it"- C.Moore

 Vida's 2nd birthday is coming up and we have decided on a
 "Sparkle Unicorn" theme birthday party. She absolutely loves horses...pretty much any animal, so we knew this party had to involve some kind of animal and after spending hours on Pinterest, I was immediately inspired by a cute unicorn/pony photo shoot, so we went to a local equestrian center to take some photos for her invitation and to snap a few photos of the cutest little moccasins ever!

"Salt Water Taffy"  Moccs

I bought my first pair of FP Moccs before Vida was even born. 'Glacier' stole my heart the first moment I saw them and I have been hooked ever since. 
(I ended up buying them in three different sizes)
When I saw Susan pitch her idea on Shark Tank, I knew I had to own a pair.  She has a strong work ethic, is determined, extremely hard working and a mom! 
She definitely does it all. She has become an inspiration for a lot of mommy entrepreneurs.

Freshly Picked Moccasins are the only shoes that stay on Vida's feet, I promise you, they do not fall off!! They come in so many beautiful colors you 
won't be able to just chose one.
They are unisex and come in soft leather or soft suede, but still equally as cute, durable and made in the USA!!
And the number one reason I love them? 

They leave the cutest little imprint on the sole that you can cherish forever.

 I am going to give you all a chance to win your very own pair
 + a flower hair clip from my bow shop
