Spotlight Series:: A Family Blog That You Will Fall In Love With

My spotlight this week shines brightly on a New England family that loves to live in the moment. Will and Sam’s Fam is a refreshing site that chronicles the crazy lives of two parents who have no idea what they’re doing but have managed to fake their way to success thus far. They claim to have a messy house, dirty dishes, piles of laundry and a love for the life they’ve created together. By all accounts, we may just be long lost friends. After all, I also have a messy house, dirty dishes, and piles of laundry. Hmmmm…. Do you think, just...

Little Adventures:: Review and Giveaway

Mojitos & Munchkins recently had the opportunity to review a fabulous new product on the market, and are happy to share it with our readers! Our two little “pet vets in training” were beyond thrilled to get home to see this package!

Spotlight Series:: Shop Annie’s Website

This week, our spotlight shines on ShopAnnies. A blogger since 2008, Angela highlights recipes, tips, contests and giveaways. From her crockpot brownies to her Strawberry Lime Margarita Cupcakes, she has introduced me to recipes I want to try. I love how thorough she is in her recipe posts and her attention to detail – This definitely comes in handy when attempting to replicate her kitchen goodies. ShopAnnie’s is a place where you can expect a post almost daily… Which means she certainly puts me to shame 🙂 Meet Angela Church Before you head over to her website, take a few minutes to get to...

The Unfathomable Thing I Did Today While My Girls Played…

Today, I read a book. TWO chapters of a book, to be exact. And I didn’t put the book down once, not even when my two year old was crying that her sister took a toy OR when my four year old started screaming at her sister that she was going to “Tell mommy on you.” While I would be lying if I tried to say I was actively watching or paying attention to what they were doing, from what I gather, my two daughters had an elaborate set up that crossed different environments, and they used their imaginations to role play...

Mojitos & Munchkins featured on UNICEF Kid Power

Awhile back, I collaborated with UNICEF on a fitness post. Since then, we have been in touch and my little family was recently featured on their blog. Finding Fitness In Your Own Backyard was a fun post to collaborate on, as our backyard is the lifeline of our home! From swim parties to ice skating parties, theme parties to kids’ birthday parties, our backyard is where all the action happens!! What is UNICEF Kid Power, you ask? Simply put, it is an organization that gives KIDS the POWER to save lives. What an inspirational message that is, and how powerful to put...

Children’s Book Review:: “The Magic Of My Name”

In a market where there are countless children’s books to choose from, there are certain features that set some apart from others. Personalization is one of those items. Any time you can personalize a book to make a child feel like the author had them (and only them) in mind, you are guaranteed to get smiles and extra nighttime snuggles. That is exactly what I got from my son after he received The Magic Of My Name. Created by The Story Tailors, who believed in the right for all children to experience magic, this book tells the tale of how a child got...

WAHM Series: A Day In The Life…

This post is part of the Work-at-Home-Mom Blog Series Hosted By Becca Day. Being a mama is a J.O.B. In and of itself, mommin’ is quite possibly the hardest thing you’ll ever do. What other job makes you feel guilty, sleep deprived, ready to tear out your hair, and full of love and happiness on a daily basis? But for some, being a mama is not enough. Some will go back to work, and others will take it upon themselves to start a side hustle. If you are considering working from home while you have little kids, then this is the series...

Make Something Monday:: EASY Sugar Cookies

I always read recipes that claim “easy” and then look through their 89 ingredients and 401 steps before humming the “Liar, liar, pants on fire” tune in my brain. In scouring for cookies that my littles could help with, I found a gift from Pinterest! These Sugar Cookies from Inspired Dreamer. They really are simple, they really do have a limited amount of ingredients as far as baking goes, (Full disclosure: Cream of Tarter is included, and I did have to purchase that), and they DO involve sprinkles. Which is an absolute bonus for your tiniest bakers. Enjoy!!

Holiday Withdrawal for Kids

If your life mimics mine at all, you’re slowly trying to dig yourself out of the holiday highs. For over a week, your children have dined on peanut butter balls and sugar cookies. A break from school has allotted them late night movies and cousin slumber parties. Holiday travel and stays away from home have given way to… {shriek} … a break from three balanced(ish) meals a day. As a parent, I can intelligently know that this is all a recipe for disaster. Yet, we let it happen because (after all), it is the holidays. And as I’ve come to...
