Most of my knowledge has come from failing… And trying again! The mood of my blog changes faster than a hormonal pregnant woman who just found out she can’t eat chocolate!! Come along for the ride :)


Spotlight Series:: Bright Life Studio

Bright Life Studio was created for women {and men!} to have an invaluable space for trying, failing, creating, and succeeding. And really, when you think about it, what else exists in life than each of those things? All too often, we are compared to others, hard on ourselves, and listening to advice from strangers on how to be real. BLS allows you to be comfortable with who you are AND confidence in who you are.  Their message is simple: Boldy Be You. Meet Katy This week, we are getting to know 1/3 of the writing staff at Bright Lite Studio. Along with her co-authors, Meredith &...


Review:: Caveman Coffee

I was recently introduced to Caveman Coffee, and boy am I thankful I was. They are a company that is not only inspiring in their collections but also with their staff. With their bold flavors and choices aplenty, Caveman Coffee is something to check into! From my first sip, I could feel myself slipping into caveman status – seriously, I think I actually grew chest hair thanks to their Blacklisted bean. Holy WAKE ME UP. I liked it. I liked it a lot. Thankfully, I had some of their Peppermint Chamomile Tea to bring back my sleepy time zen at the...


Review:: Daily Goodie Box

Just when you think the world is cynical and bitter and everyone is out for themselves, Daily Goodie Box steps in and reminds you that there is kindness, thoughtfulness, selflessness, and good all around. SO much good. With one simple package, I felt like it was Christmas + my birthday + Costco sample day all rolled into one. YIPPEEEEEEEEEEE! What is Daily Goodie Box you ask? Oh, how happy I am you’re interested. Read on… Daily Goodie Box Daily Goodie Box is exactly what it sounds like. To put it in layman’s terms, let me break it down for you:...


Homemade Latte Recipe & Coffee Giveaway

**Coffee giveaway in this post!** In a sad realization that I could fund a child’s college tuition with what I was spending at coffee shops, I decided it was time to make a small change. And by small, perhaps I should say a Venti change? {Eh? Eh? See what I did there?} I now make my own homemade lattes and they are easy, yummy, & doable. See for yourself! Why I Make My Own Cost. Gone are the days of swinging through the drive-through and dropping $5 on my beloved grande Vanilla Latte, my medium Northern Lite Latte, or my venti Cafe Latte....

Five Minute Friday:: Empty

I have teamed up with a wonderful team of bloggers who participate in “Five Minute Friday.” Here’s the skinny: Every Friday for nearly four years hundreds of people joined a kind of writing flash mob. We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that is posted by the the team starting at 10pm EST on Thursday night and all through Friday. And we connect on Twitter with the hashtag #FMFParty (It stands for Five Minute Friday Party). No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real. Today’s word: Empty. I am surrounded by stuff. Everywhere I...


Review:: Starlight Baby

A onesie to an infant is as synonymous as the chocolate chip is to a cookie. If the littlest person in your life is going to wear a onesie anyway, why not get them the best onesie on the block? Starlight Baby offers just that. Quality onesies that are adorable, funny, and memorable. You could even get your very own Mojitos & Munchkins onesie, which is simply TO DIE FOR in my humble opinion. {Cute toddler not included. Ha.} What is Starlight Baby? Helping Your Little Star Shine. We all know that babes are the star of a room. Dress them in...


Kid Things:: Shopping Solution for Busy Parents

I just had the best experience shopping for clothes for my three – count them, THREE, children. Imagine this: I got to casually and calmly browse clothing. For three kids. Without getting a sitter. Without leaving my house. With a stylist searching for options exclusively for my little ones.  No stress. No snacks. No problem. Thanks to Kid Things, I kept my cool and scored some majorly cute finds for my cuties. What is Kid Things? In short, Kid Things is a convenient way for busy parents to purchase clothing for their children. If Stitch Fix and Amazon Prime were to have a love...


Minneapolis Based Driven Coffee:: My New Reason to Wake Up!

A morning person, I am not. However, my recent discovery of Driven Coffee has perked me up and given me encouragement in getting out of bed in the morning. Let me set the scene – I have three young children at my house. They wake up looooooong before I’d like to, so when my feet hit the ground there’s no turning back. There is no gradual release from my slumber to my day. It is a full throttle, guns a barreling, take-no-prisoners mentality to the day. How Do I Take My Coffee? I can’t claim to be a coffee connoisseur. I...


Spotlight Series:: Bleeping Motherhood

I am honored and excited to share my next spotlight feature with you. Bleeping Motherhood makes me laugh, leads me to tears (after so much laughter), guides me straight to the wine fridge, and leaves me wishing we could meet face to face to sort out all of life’s issues. Seriously, I’m convinced if Bleeping Motherhood and Mojitos & Munchkins could meet for a happy hour, all would be right in the universe.   Bleeping Motherhood When I first ran across Bleeping Motherhood, I believe it was a funny post on Facebook that caught my eye. Something about wine being...
