Donut Cake: Birthday/Easter Edition ~ Taco Tuesday

This year we celebrated my daughters 3rd birthday on Easter Sunday.  You see I come from a BIG family and my Mom boasts of her 17 grandchildren with pride.  So each month we get together for a family birthday party!  I wanted something simple & sweet (like the Easter candy wasn't enough right?).  So I piled the donuts high, sprinkled on some edible grass and Easter'd it up with chocolate eggs & bunnies!

From Frizzy to Straight: Zelo Brazilian Smoothing System Review on day2day SuperMom
My sponsor with a SuperPower! But have no fear, opinions are ALWAYS 100% mine =)
Being on the wrong side of 35 I don't have many firsts anymore.  But I had one last week... I used a hair smoothing system to tame my pregnancy-induced curly hair and frizz.
And can I tell you something?  It worked!  And it was easy!
And I'm excited to share my before & after's with you.

Mossy Washi ~ DIY Friday featured on PARADE!

I am so super excited to have an original DIY Friday project featured over at Parade Magazine Online!  I made my very own DIY Mossy Washi Tape and shared the easy step-by-step picture tutorial over at Parade.

Seriously, I had to harness self-control to not cover everything and anything with my Mossy Washi.  My daughters loved the thought of a Garden Fairy magically adding moss around the house.  But when I was tempted to embellish the ugly black frame around my flat screen TV, I had to stop and think "What would SuperHubbie do?"

So please, pop on over to my article!  Read it, Pin it, Share it & then DIY it.  I'd LOVE it too if you'd leave me a comment of what you think!  =)

Twin Problems: Different Size Babies, One Diaper

Twin Problems: Different Size Babies, One Diaper! on day2day SuperMom
This is a sponsored post that I wrote on behalf of Mom to Mom.  All opinions are always mine =)
I can't even believe my twins are 10 months old already!  It has been a wild ride, I tell ya.  Double the giggles, double the hugs, double the sweetness and double the diapers.
A couple months ago I suggest to my husband "I think we need two different sized diapers."  He looked at me and said quite eloquently "No way!  That will make us even crazier!"

Not Your Average Deviled Egg ~ Taco Tuesday

Not Your Average Deviled Egg ~ Taco Tuesday on day2day SuperMom
We are on the brink of boiling, dying, hiding and finding nothing but eggs.  After all the fun is over the real search begins.  Finding what the egg yolk to-do with all those eggs!  Well I got ya covered.  Once the round-up of eggs is complete pick a new deviled egg recipe to try out.  Or maybe two...heck, you've got enough Easter Egg Hunts left to try them all!

Ok SuperMom's, it's time to get real.  I have a story to tell you.  A true tale that is right out of Tales from the Darkside (does that age me?).  A very scary moment that was downright icky with a little bit of hilariousness thrown into the mix.  You ready?
Que the music and the scary black trees....

Adventures in Vermicomposting: 1 Year Later ~ PreppDay Wednesday


Adventures in Vermicomposting: 1 Year Later ~ PreppDay Wednesday on day2day SuperMom
My first year as a worm grower was quite the experience.  The kids had a blast, we all learned a lot, plus I turned my garbage into this amazing soil.  So all in all I give the experience an A despite the learning curve in the beginning.  Let me show you a few important pointers that I learned when starting your own adventures in vermicomposting!
