Free Customizable Camping List Printable

customizable camping list printable

My family loves camping. Whether it be camping in our back yard, camping on our boat, or even having a camping birthday party, we camp at least once a year. You'd think that with how many times we camp that I'd have packing down to a tee. The thing is, I HATE packing. Packing for anything causes me huge anxiety. I'm not quite sure why. It's probably because my family moved a lot when I was younger. To help with packing for camping, I made a camping list printable of everything our family takes on our trips. Now packing (at least to go camping) is a breeze and we rarely forget anything! I thought I'd share my printable camping supply list with you to make your packing easy too! I've included things that we've packed when our girls were babies and even things we take for our dogs. This list is completely customizable so you can make it your own without a lot of thought. See the directions for customization below. Click on the photo above or click HERE to download. To … [Read more...]

Donate to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

I have been compensated for this post however all thoughts and opinions are my own. All statistical information and the Walmart gift card have been provided by P&G. Whether they suffer from common childhood afflictions like asthma and broken bones, or fight bigger challenges like birth defects or cancer, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provide comfort, treatment and hope to millions of sick kids. As you may know, my real job is a pediatric intensive care nurse. Though I do not work at a Children's Miracle Network Hospital, the hospital at which I work frequently partners with Gillette Children's Hospital which is a Network hospital. Why do we partner with them? Because, though my hospital is excellent at a lot of things, we can't be excellent at everything. Rehab and orthotics are two of the things with which we partner with Gillette. They are the Twin Cities’ only pediatric comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation program certified by the Commission on the … [Read more...]

Father's Day is one week away. Have you thought about what your children are going to do for their dad? What ever you decide to do, how about including this About My Dad Father's Day Printable to make this Father's Day memorable. We don't do much for smaller Holidays like Father's Day in my family.

6 Friendly Summertime Reminders

summertime reminders

Today is the first day of summer vacation for my girls. Today begins 98 days of fun (at least for them, maybe not for me). Today I bring you some friendly summertime reminders... Drowning Is Silent I will repeat this over and over again on my blog - drowning is silent. I wrote a post about it last year (see link) and I'm considering republishing it this year. I can not reach enough people with this message! Also remember that most drownings occur when multiple adults are present. Don't assume someone else is watching your child(ren) in the water. Designate someone to watch children in the water and make a clear hand-off when you want to switch people watching. Don't always rely on the life guards either. They have more than just your children to look out for. Food Shelves Need Your Donations There are tons of food drives during the school year and especially around the holidays, but did you know that summertime is when food shelves need your donations the most? Children are … [Read more...]

CRAVE’s New Breakfast Menu

Crave Breakfast

A new brunch spot has arrived in Saint Louis Park: Crave in the Shops at West End is now open for breakfast beginning at 8:00 AM on Saturdays and Sundays.  As you may know, I work most weekends so it's hard for me to get out for breakfast. When I was asked to review Crave's new breakfast menu, I had every intention of going. I really wanted to try red velvet pancakes! But life got out of hand and I ended up having my friend Stephanie* go in my place. Here is her review... We don’t normally go out for brunch because my husband makes a pretty solid American style breakfast, but it’s nice to give him a break from the kitchen every now and then.  We arrived by 9:00 AM.  Fortunately, the restaurant was empty that early, so we didn’t need to worry about a wait for a table.  Whether it was because of the holiday weekend or because people still don’t know about it, we practically had the whole place to ourselves.  It was nice because I usually associate “brunch” with “wait an hour for a … [Read more...]
