momlikethat sunvalleyidaho.jpg

Last week we got back from our amazing trip to Idaho where we spent ten days on beautiful Sun Valley.  Today I am sharing a little about dining and the best huckleberry ice cream in town with you and for anyone who might want to visit at some point.  This was our second year in Sun Valley and it's one of my favorite summer vacation with the kids.  Everyone is still talking about our time there, and we can’t wait to go back again. Stay tuned for part II and III for activities, and places to visit. Have a wonderful weekend!

Recycling Kids Artwork

School is out and like me you probably have tons of your kids artworks to put away. The best way to recycle them is to showcase them around the house. I get my frames from IKEA and Michael's

I've been recycling my kids artworks in the last five years and actually it's one of the event I look forward during the year. It's like Christmas in June! What do you do with your kids artworks?

I love feminine white lace dresses for summer, especially in the hotter days. It just feels light and bright on a hot summer day. And if you in the market for a new bag but don't want to break the bank, I highly suggest checking out the handbags by Zac Posen.
