What can you do in 25 minutes and what does that have to do with New Year’s resolutions? Hello January! This year, I am dedicating a word for 2018. The word for me is F-O-C-U-S. With so much going on in our lives, I am finding it difficult to do anything well. Throw in the distractions of social media, kids activities, running a home and my blogging work, I feel spread thin as a mother,... Read More
With little hangry kids, families want their food fast but not necessarily fast food if you know what I mean. Families looking to eat healthier also want food made with fresh, wholesome ingredients. However, fast and wholesome can sometimes be a tricky combo. This is where the 'fast casual' concepts do well with us especially when time is short. So what's the difference between fast food concepts versus fast casual places? Both types of eateries lets you order at a counter and does not have table service. However, fast casual concepts have higher quality of food and are made to order. Some that we've featured previously are Dive Coastal Cuisine, Carbone's and Modern Market. Our aim at meal time is to 'eat the rainbow' so here's four fast casual restaurants that IttyBittyFoodies love.
This year our IttyBittyFoodies holiday gifts list is going small and meaningful. Our kids have so much stuff which is why last year Santa regifted their own toys for Christmas in Why I'm Giving My Kids Their Old Toys For Christmas. It didn't go so well with my kids but my parent readers loved it! This year their Christmas wish list is more judicious, with just one or two items. Pinned on the Advent Calendar is a small note saying "Santa, Please be nice". I had to laugh at my 12 year old's note which stated he would like a 1000+ Lego set that he doesn't already own. Our IttyBittyFoodies Holiday Gifts list are curated with a lot of care and thought, featuring small independent businesses, experience gifts that hopefully won't overshadow the true meaning of Christmas.
Let’s take on a healthier approach when buying beauty gifts this holidays. People don’t realize that your skin is your largest organ. It surprises me that we aren’t conscious of what we put on our skin as we are with the food we eat. This year, we discovered some clean beauty lines that make wonderful beauty gifts. They are plant-based, natural and free of toxins, the way beauty should be. Kudos to Neiman Marcus for... Read More
It’s the season to give thanks and this Thanksgiving, I wanted to share the birth story of our youngest son, Googie. Why him and not the older two? Googie was born in early November. It’s not a birth that most parents envisioned. It was so traumatic, I nearly died and he wasn’t alive when they took him out via emergency caesarian. One of the most haunting and distressing experiences for parents after a birth is... Read More
We have fallen for the new 'gourd-geous' Kusama exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art. "All the eternal love I have for the pumpkins" is a truly unique and magical experience. However, there's so many rules to follow in order to view it. I thought I would put a list together of all the things families should know before visiting. It would help manage expectations so that you get the most out of this fascinating avant-garde art exhibit. It's truly a spectacle to be enjoyed.
IttyBittyFoodies’ guest TRAVEL contributor Helen Yoon tells us how she hiked Big Bend Texas with her four year old. My husband and I love the outdoors. Hiking, biking, swimming, camping, you name it. It has been our unspoken goal that we explore this world together and instill in our son, a love for adventure and nature. We began taking short hikes with him when he was 3 months old on a trip to Bryce Canyon.... Read More
