Hi there!

Hey lovelies, welcome to SDB! I'm Natasha. I am a walking, talking mombie fueled by coffee. I am obsessed with shoes, all things glittery and/or sparkly, and I have an owl obsession. We talk about everything from motherhood, lifestyle, and all things inbetween. I am a mom of three kids and we reside in the Pacific Northwest. Thanks for tagging along! Now lets sit back and sip on a cup of coffee in the AM or wine in the PM and lets relax.

Peanut Butter Canon Balls

Updated as of 3/3/2017.

I recently just discovered this old recipe that I posted back in September of 2011 when I was working as a Site Director at the YMCA. I forgot how easy, delicious, and simple this no bake ball was until I made again earlier this week. I made them with my own kids and we decided to call them Peanut Butter Canon Balls for a fun pirate themed treat. 

The recipe is super easy, a no bake that all kids and adults will enjoy (with the exception of those who are allergic to peanut butter). You can also add chunks of chocolate or chocolate chips, grated nuts if you're not a coconut fan, or even use sun butter instead of peanut butter for those with allergies. I plan on experimenting with this recipe until I find the right combination for my family.

Amari's 18 Month Photo's are Here... Yay! :D

My friend Becky took Amari's 18 month photo's back in August. Stinker was soOo tired that day; I was so happy that she was able to capture his sweet precious smile and his stank-eye face, LOL. We ended up having his shoot taken at Tumwater Historical Park. Originally, we were planning on having his photos taken at Tumwater Falls but decided on the park. I have been to the park only once before and it was the perfect place to capture stinker in his own element.  Some of my favorite photos of him are on the bridge and a pathway with fallen leaves. He was so fascinated by the rocks, leaves, and sticks on the ground. =) Here a few of my favorite pictures.

I am so excited. OUR WEDDING PICTURES ARE FINALLY HERE! Diana Sell did such an amazing job. I feel so blessed to have had a my childhood mentor and family friend capture our special day. The photos turned out beautifully and I cannot wait to get my favorite ones professionally framed so they can be displayed throughout our home.
