Last year I was in a major lunch-packing rut and turned to Pinterest for some ideas. BAD IDEA. I don’t know who has time for elaborate lunches during the week but I sure don’t. I just want something relatively healthy that is quick and easy to throw together that Piper will actually EAT! So I […]

To kick off the fall shopping season J.Crew is offering a buy-more-save-more sale on select merchandise. 40% off […]

I love putting together these monthly recap posts to see what The Mama Notes audience was interested in and purchased at the end of every month. Here are the top performers for August!

Yes, I know it’s technically summer but after Labor Day I go into full on fall mode around here. Before I bust out the bats and skulls I like to decorate for FALL – and then I’ll bring this decor back out for about a week after Halloween for Thanksgiving until Christmas decorations come out. […]
