I had a chance to take the Giant Food Stores new Fresh Meal Kits for a spin.

And ZOMG.

You need to try them.

Like. Tonight. 
Disclosure: this is a sponsored post. Some days, I just can't keep up. With, like, life. And by "some days" I mean "every day." Can I get an amen? Since starting this blog as a stay-at-home mom (thus the name of the blog), I've transitioned to part-time work-at-home mom (WAHM).

If you are looking for a good gift for the music lover in your life, Hubby (a BIG musicophile) did a great write up on 2 albums by Simon & Garfunkel and Bob Dylan to add to your shopping list!

The focus on this year's Gift Guide? LEARNING and CREATIVITY. 

If you're looking for a few more gift ideas, I've got you covered!

Now that we've had this whole parenting thing under our belt for over seven years (I know. We're surprised, too), it's safe to say our lives our pretty inundated with toys. While we are not curmudgeonly, we are selective and thoughtful with the gifts we give our girls during the holidays.

Mint has landed at +GIANT Food Stores, and I've got the scoop.

#giveawaway : enter to win $25 for your holiday food shopping!
We can all agree: pumpkin spice is SO last season. Or, rather, last month. With the passing of Halloween, we've stepped over the threshold to the holiday season. And while there are many flavors that we associate with November and December, peppermint takes the cake.

If you're looking to shake up your pizza routine, here's a recipe I crafted last night:

Roasted Butternut, Apple and Chorizo White Pizza with Ricotta Garlic Herb Spread.

HECK YES. ----> http://bit.ly/1P4rssB

#pizza  
So it's been a while since I've posted about my homemade pizza adventures. We got away from our weekly grilled pizza routine due to...ahem...creative differences between me and Hubby. But yesterday, I had one of those culinary inspirational moments where an idea pops into your head and you are ...

"It's one thing to say, "I know you can write." And another to say, "You are a great writer." One supposes untapped potential; the other assumes the potential is realized.

What if we began believing in what our kids will become. Believing it, even if it isn't yet realized, but claiming the belief and believing it for our kids? 

How might that increase their confidence, their self-esteem?"

I was eagerly sifting through the clearance racks at Old Navy with a miniature Elsa trailing behind me. It was the battle I chose not to fight today. It was Friday. And I'm one of those work-in-progress parents who still has a lot to learn; learning to pick my battles is an ongoing lesson.

5 holiday beauty tips AND a chance to win $25 to Giant Food Stores!

http://www.moderndaydonnareed.com/2015/12/holiday-beauty-tips-25-giant-giftcard.html
If you're anything like me, you have a Holiday Style Pinterest board. I spend the year scouting the holiday season's best looks, from outfits to hair and make up. I have a ton of big events to attend during the holiday season. But when I do head out to a holiday soiree (WITHOUT KIDS ...

The holidays are upon us. And while for many it is a time of joy, for others it is a struggle.

A story from my life on holidays and brokenness.
The road wound lazily through suburbia, bordered on one side by an upscale retirement community, assorted houses and neighborhoods on the other. Despite being two solid weeks past Thanksgiving, trees still held a few stragglers amidst naked branches. Remnants of yellow, red and orange dotted ...

#Parents  : are you okay with your kids going to sleepovers? Why or why not?

My struggles on the topic in this post: http://bit.ly/1l9V8aq.
Blue or red-checked? I agonized over what pattern I should opt for in the sleeping bag my mom was purchasing. What would look the coolest? I couldn't fail my first sleepover, especially when every girl in my class would be there. It wasn't until 4th grade that my parents finally acquiesced in ...

Story
Tagline
A pee a little every time I laugh or sneeze. I also have a dangerous relationship with ice cream.
Introduction

One day when Steph leaves this world, she will be known for many things: Imperfect mother. English teacher's wife. Baking a wicked apple crisp. Shopping yet remaining unfashionable. Struggling to discern the line between reality and fantasy on TV shows. Passionately eating ice cream. Peeing a little every time she sneezes or laughs. Deep thoughts. Laughable housekeeping. Secretly crushing on MacGyver. And being a world-class blogger. Join her as she adventures through blogging, life, marriage, cooking, parenting and bringing sexy back, but not necessarily in that order. You can find her at Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Mom.

Stephanie loves community.  When she started blogging over 3 years ago, it was Steph's intent to reach out to any and every mother of the world, so they would know they were not alone on this journey called Motherhood. Since then, she has successfully (and somewhat humorously) redefined The Modern Day Donna Reed. Her blog has gained a faithful readership who explores parenthood, cooking, learning, growing, watching great TV shows and unabashedly loving the 90's.  The Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Mom blog has a lively and growing Facebook Page where there is a constant chatter.

Steph is passionate about things she loves, and is influential when sharing about something she believes in. She is the social media director/blogger for her local farmer's market, West Chester Growers Market, and is a regular contributor to thePhilly Burb Moms sites and MetroKids magazine, as well as the Philadelphia City Manager for SavvySource..  Steph is also an active member of Philly Social Media Moms.
