Love Mabel's Labels!  No kid of mine is getting a permanent marker.  I love that they come with ones for the inside of shoes too!  We always lose things at Dance, and now they get returned to us.  Yay!

I adore the stick-on ones for clothes, water bottles, everything. And the metal hang tags for backpacks and lunchboxes are fabulous.  +Mabels Labels FTW!

I made this for Valentine's Day but really, I think about this everyday.  From the moment we are born, before we can spell or write or talk, we can feel love.  For our whole lives, love is there.  Love is real.  Show some love today and everyday!

Are there any Art-O-Mat's in #Charlotte? +Laurie Smithwick do you know?  And if not how the hell can we get one?
 
Have You Seen an Art-O-Mat machine?

"Art-o-mat machines are retired cigarette vending machines that have been converted to vend art."
I'm dying to get my hands on one of these things, and I just discovered there are a few in Chicago. It's such a cool concept, isn't it?

We took away my 4 year old's #DisneySide birthday party.  It was my hardest decision so far as a parent.  You should know it was the right decision.  Things are getting so much better!  Have you ever taken anything big away from your kids? http://www.thatsvandy.com/2014/03/violet-lost-disneyside-birthday-party/

I really struggle with this.  I would have to be VERY comfortable with the parents and they would have to know my honest concerns.  Then, I would make the call.  I will say, that having known +Jennifer P. Williams online for quite awhile and knowing how seriously she takes the safety of her family I am pretty sure that I would be comfortable with my kids there.  Like any playdate, I think parents should meet the other parent and know a little about the household.  There are other issues besides guns.  Every parent has awkward moments and I assume most parents have a house or 2 for one reason or another that their kids do not play at.  Coming from +Bonbon Break 
Awkward conversations come up every day when you have children. "Why do you get to stay up late Mom?" "Why is that lady fat?" "Why do you drink wine Mom, isn't alcohol a drug?" "Why is that man so small?" "Do you ever lie, Mo...

Introduction
Nice to meet you! I'm Brittany, a girl who loves her family and making life a little or a lot more fun!

I'm a big fan of travel and want to see the whole world with my kids.  When I'm home, I love to be crafty and go all DIY on my abode.  I know that people can make their home a place they love without a lot of money.  I love to throw a good party and dance and sing and basically be merry.  I also love technology and gadgets.  I always have.

Life is full of choices, and I want to make mine count.  My motto is Live Big. Love Much, Learn More.
