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...

Review:: Bazzle Baby Bibs and More

I recently crossed paths with Bazzle Baby and lets just say my uterus immediately ached for another babe. Seriously. One look at all of the products that exist on the Bazzle Baby website and I yearned to have a reason to buy it. All of it.  The brains behind the shop are 3 moms who wanted to offer fashionable yet functional gear and accessories. And bonus: Their products are machine washable and I can’t say enough about the high quality of material used. They were also the original designers of the first bandana bib over 10 years ago. Raise your hand if you...

Shoot Along Photography Class:: Week 2

My second week of my photography short course was a fun one! This week, we focused on composition, which gave me an opportunity to try shooting with rule or thirds, leading lines and symmetry in mind. I really took advantage of our online community this week and relished in the many ideas and photograph ideas that were posted in our private FB group. That, in addition to comments from our two instructors, and I can easily say I learned a lot. My hands-on practice – and the results I’m seeing – continues to give me the confidence that I need to keep going!...

Review:: Post Pal Club

At our house, we love to take it old school and write actual letters. You know, the kind that requires a stamp and a short walk to the mailbox, followed by participation from the US Postal Service and appropriate wait time for a response. Ah, the nostalgia of wait time and pencil-and-paper writing in this fast paced world set by technology. It’s refreshing, to say the least. When I first heard about the Post Pal Club, I was excited about the simplicity of personalized pre-stamped post cards that came ready for my children to write and send! When I saw the cute designs...
