Sure, Halloween is over, but the scariest time has JUST begun. November 1-January 1 has proven to be the absolute scariest time for our families. The holiday season is officially here!
Each year, we promised to be done shopping by now, have the kids' toys purged, family photos planned and dinner menus crafted. YET, small things like Youth Soccer League and Kindergarten have taken up more time than anticipated:
So, in an effort to get things in order - we will plan to attack all holiday efforts by 12/1.
(Overzealous, yes! Practical, maybe):
While it's a scary time, the amazing memories, days of gratitude and lessons we are teaching remind us that we wouldn't be the wives, moms, sisters, daughters without the frantic times of 11/1 to 1/1.
How do you manage when your calendar takes a hit?
We're back! Here is one of our favorite blogs from 2015 - highlighting the joys of the car line. We'd love to hear your tips - please comment below!
My daughter started kindergarten this year! It has been an amazing adventure but with every adventure comes new things. This was the first time in my life I was introduced to a car line. My daughter's school is new this year and it is absolutely beautiful. With that being said the first week of school in the car line was an absolute nightmare.
If I had the luxury of being in the car line alone it wouldn't have been as bad but in tow with me I have my three year old son who is in the middle of an amazing tantrum phase. In addition to the tantrums, he knows that if he says he has to go potty , then he can get out of the car.
So let's do the math, tired mom, cranky three year old, and a really really long line of parents who are equally miserable. Here are some of the things that have happened to us so far:
I think it is safe to say we've made a spectacle of ourselves and we are pretty well known in the car line! Here are some tips that I can pass along so that you too can survive the car line!
How do you survive the car line?
Living in Las Vegas causes dry skin, seasonal allergies and cracked lips. Our goal is to find products that are free of chemicals and not tested on animals.
Kiss Me Honey lip balm offers everything we need as Mamas on the go- it's cruelty-free, eco-friendly and organic. Did I mention it's made locally and can be used as a lip primer? I know, I know – it's unreal:
Con: Our girls love it!
Tip: Buy them a tube and keep yours hidden.

"Over the years, I have tried countless lip balms. I kept buying one after another finding likes and dislikes in each one. Then I decided to research the ingredients in lip balm products. I was surprised to find out that many lip balms are made with harmful chemicals and other ingredients that people should not be putting on their lips! Some of these ingredients do the reverse and dry lips instead of keeping them soft.
So I decided to make my own lip balm which can also be used as a lip primer. I started melting away and found a wonderful organic formulation that was safe for adults and children. Thus Kiss Me Honey evolved!" - Kellie Duran, Founder
