I am a firm believer that there is something to celebrate everyday!

It’s no secret that when you have a little one learning to drink with a straw every parent on the planets number one request is for the cup not to leak! That is how my Mr. BMF and I found these amazing cups with built in straw. The handle helped our little guy carry around […]

If there’s one story that so many know from childhood it has to be If You Give a Mouse a Cookie! Due to my love for blueberry pancakes when I was pregnant a sweet friend gifted me If You Give a Pig a Pancake, and it’s been a favorite in our home since day one. […]

Today let’s chat kiddos! It’s safe to say the amount of blog posts, Easter basket guides and information floating around for children’s baskets can be overwhelming.

It’s safe to say I have always loved beauty. I grew up a competitive cheerleader, then entered the world of pageants and was always taught that it is better to be over dressed, opposed to underdressed, any day. I was taught by makeup professionals, former Miss America’s and even my mother who was a certified […]

Since my hubby and I were married I haven’t spent much time with the girls of the Frederick family, alone. We always have big family dinners and I get to hug on my adorable nephew, but sometimes girls night is needed. Last week my father-in-law, Doug,  ask the girls of the Frederick family if we […]

Christmas is right around  the corner and I am not even close to finished shopping! Instead of stressing out I am thinking of everything sweet about Christmas!  Candy canes, chocolate, ornaments and pretty packages wrapped with bows, what else could be better? Sing a few carols with friends and kiss your sweetie under some mistletoe… […]

This morning on Facebook I asked, “Would you rather be a snowman or gingerbread man?” and it seems snowman was the favorite. I started out thinking of a sophisticated snowman party with fun evening gowns and pretty china, but then I saw this adorable tutu! Let’s face it nothing is better than a tutu, so […]

As many of you know I recently got engaged! It’s so fun to personally walk though what I have walked so many of my brides through. It’s also fun to do fun things with my mom like pick out my dress, look for shoes, and much more! (I can’t share too many details with you […]
