The last 8 years of my life I’ve lived 28, 18, and now 22 hours from my family in Idaho. I decided at the start, that I’d have to conquer my fear of traveling without my husband. Two months after Rex started Medical school, I took my first trip from Ohio to Idaho with my 11 month child, and my 7 month pregnant self! I was given lots of advice to pack a ton of stuff to make it an “easy” day of traveling. Things like extra clothes, pacifiers, and suckers to help with the pressure change....toys galore, quiet books, picture books, food, blankets, and extra toys.
Over the past 8 years I’ve taken at least 28 cross country-ish trips with two kids that are 14 1/2 months apart. The boys have visited 30 different states and I’m so grateful for all the places we’ve been able to visit! Traveling with kids is the only area in my life I feel like I actually know!
Hopefully you can take some of these tips to ease the fear of traveling solo with your kiddos!
It is no secret that Cassie and I LOVE sharing our favorite products with you guys right? Speaking of secrets, do you know how much both of our husbands are involved in our projects here? They are the very backbone of most everything we do here at Clover Lane, so when I had the opportunity to give David a handmade STUNNING wooden watch, I jumped at the chance.
What did I get in the latest Sugar Smart Box? It was the best month yet!! The item I am most excited to try is the Keto Brownie Mix....YES!!!! So excited!
I am sure by now you have heard about the Keto Diet. I have been on and off this diet (NOT how you are supposed to do it). I am a horrible dieter and have a hard time living my life without sugar. It's bad. Part of my issue with this diet is I get SO SICK of meat, cheese, and the same vegetables. I want "substance" to eat and snack on. I've been lucky enough to try the Sugar Smart Box two months in a row now and it has been a lifesaver for my diet.
I am super excited to share this new DIY with you. Introducing antique balusters turned into candlesticks! This is an easy one and you won't even break a sweat!
I'm excited to share this DIY light with you! Globe Electric made this project super simple with their light kit! I used a decorative globe that I purchased from TJ Maxx- the great thing is, you can use any piece you'd like to create the perfect light for your space!
If you've been with us for awhile, then you know we LOVE SUGAR. Like live for it. It's bad and I know it. To say that I need an intervention is an understatement. I also love subscription boxes. Along with my sugar habit is a shopping habit. Really making myself look good here aren't I? ;)
This monthly box offers a variety of diabetic and keto friendly snacks. Intrigued? Wait until I talk about the carrot cake almond butter!
Continuing on our journey through our moms cookbook, we bring you this fabulous broccoli cheese soup. I am a bit embarrassed to admit that this is the first time I have made this soup. I've made countless other broccoli cheese soup recipes, but this one has been my favorite! Not even just saying that. It is creamy and so flavorful.
When pie and cookies have a baby, the "Pizookie" is born!
So....you'll need the perfect chocolate chips for this recipe, and I am a chocolate chip snob...you'll never find another brand of chocolate chips besides Ghirardelli!
If you take a little looksie on the back of that milk chocolate bag you will find the Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. It is the PERFECT cookie for pizookies!
I can honestly say that I don't think there is anything better than a fresh hot doughnut. I can also honestly tell you that my family has hold of the best spudnut recipe on planet earth. They are easy to make, but do require a time commitment. They make a great Sunday or holiday treat. You'll need around 3 hours to whip these babies up.
