Spring Greening Month via

April is finally here (ok, well, tomorrow it is), which means it's officially time for Spring Greening to begin! 

But before I start sharing all the fun posts planned for the month {easy tutorials, tips, tricks, contributor posts, and GIVEAWAYS!}, I want to use a post today to explain what motivated me to plan this EARTH-LOVING event on my blog.

Healthy Alternatives for Classroom Parties

Easy & Fun Snacks for Kids Parties

These fresh and colorful fruit cups are just as popular!


Healthy alternatives via

Last year I made a similar version of these fruit cups for my 5-year-old's class, and they were so popular (not to mention insanely easy), I decided to take some pics this time and share away!

In my experiences with little ones, I've found that presentation is often part of the appeal in getting them interested in foods. A small amount of prep work is all it took to get this "Welcome Spring Party" snack for my daughter's preschool class in VISUALLY YUMMY order.

Take-a-Trip Tuesday: What to Pack for a Family Getaway

Kids Need Lots of Stuff...

So how do you decide what to pack on your family vacation?


Helpful Tips for Travel with Kids

One of the biggest mistakes parents can make when they travel with kids is that they bring TOO MUCH STUFF! While it certainly becomes much more challenging to "travel light" when you've got kids in tow, there are a few easy things you can do to make traveling and vacationing more efficient (and help stick to your budget, too)!

You Don't Want to Miss Janie and Jack's Spring Collection

Spring is Only a Few Weeks Away!

Get Ready for Warmer Weather with Janie and Jack

By now you're fully aware that I love Janie and Jack kid's clothes, and as an affiliate I'm so excited to work with them to share some of my favorite styles. The main reasons I love Janie and Jack's kids clothing are the beautiful details and the high quality of the materials. The clothes are well made and unique, I know they'll last me a long time, and my kids look utterly adorable in their fashions :)

Since I'm a planner, I'm already getting my kids' Easter outfits squared away. The new Spring Collection offers plenty of options for my three little ones, and I was able to create some cute ensembles that coordinate without looking too "matchy." It was so fun to play around with all the new styles (can you tell?). Here are a few of my favorites:

Easter Outfit #1: Perfect For My Kindergartener!
This is probably my favorite dress in the whole Spring Collection. It's the Bow Eyelet Dress, and it would look adorable with these coordinating accessories: Eyelet Bow Oxford Hat, Eyelet Bow Headband (because I know she won't keep her hat on throughout church!), and Bow Patent Leather Shoes. I absolutely love the drop-waist look of the dress, and eyelet dresses always look so precious on little ones!
