 It doesn’t matter where you’re located, or what the weather is like outside your window, there are always times when you’ve got to be inside. And as Moms, I think we all understand that Kids + Energy + Inside is an equation that can equal chaos and inevitable messes!

That’s why we teamed up with one of our favorite brands of all time, ANKO, to test out their craft & art kits, and bring you a fun list of indoor crafts to keep your kiddos busy, even on the gloomiest of days.

I am a huge fan of arts and crafts for my kids. I feel like it’s so easy to turn on the TV, or hand the kids a tablet on a gloomy day when we’re stuck inside…but I would way rather have crafts for them to do instead!!! I ran into our local ANKO and picked up a bunch of new arts & craft supplies and put them in a bin for easy access. I love having the crafts all together, and being able to let the kids access them easily in one spot.

We get such predictable weather here in Seattle. You can almost guarantee its gunna be rainy outside. Earlier this week the weather was FREEZING, and we had hours to kill inside before bedtime. I pulled out the bin of crafts from ANKO, and we played for hours. I will even admit that I got lost in coloring while I was “helping them” with their coloring pages & crafts HAHA. We spent HOURS at the table coloring & making bracelets and before we knew it, it was time for dinner!

Linked all my favorite ANKO arts & crafts below that are perfect for kiddos of all ages! Got all these crafts and bin for under $35!!

Fall weather is officially here in Seattle. I love rainy, foggy days…but especially love dressing for the cooler weather! I recently had the opportunity to work with Børn Footwear, who makes amazing shoes & boots! When I worked at a department store back in college, I got to see all the new styles they came out with each season, and was able to see the quality and versatility of their shoes up close! They make great shoes, but I especially LOVE their boots…and every fall/winter season I pick out a pair that I love to add to my wardrobe.

 I have had my eyes on these Wynd Boots ever since I saw them online a few weeks ago!! I love the western vibe they give, and the full grain leather they are made with. I found out they also come in SEVEN colors!!! I chose the Grey because I felt it could go with more, and I already have too many black boots! J You can find them at Dillards or online at Dillards.com!

For this outfit, I paired the Wynd Boots with a long sweater dress, and warm jacket!! A perfect option when the weather isn’t super cold or snowy, & since I think dresses look cute with an ankle boot! I love that this boot has zippers on the back, to easily take on and off!! You could also pair these with some denim and a cozy sweater (I just love that combo)! There are honestly a lot of ways to wear these boots and they are just SO DANG COMFY.

This post is sponsored by Sargento, but all opinions are my own!*

Everyone is gearing up for back to school or even started school already! Marloe doesn’t start preschool quite yet, but I am already prepping mentally for that day!

Tortilla Roll-ups (or pinwheels) are among the foods that both Marloe and Sorel love. I often make them when we’re heading to the beach, or on-the-go since they are easy to make and pack up for the car! I love quick meals that don’t take too much effort, but are a wholesome delicious option that the entire family loves!!! These Roll-ups hit the spot & leave my girls asking for more! MOM WIN!!! During back to school season, cooking is the last thing on your mind. So the solution is making simple recipes packed full of flavor with none of the fuss, like these easy Mini Ham & Cheese Tortilla Roll-ups!

These are so yummy, and use very few ingredients--best part is that you might already have most of these ingredients at home already! My girls love helping me make them, and love to spread the cream cheese on the tortillas! These Roll-ups are awesome to have on hand, and are a great meal or snack for adults and kiddos! Their mini size is perfect for a quick bite & fits easily in a child’s hand!

TIPS FOR MAKING THE YUMMIEST ROLL-UPS

  • Use Sargento® Cheese slices! They are the perfect real, natural cheese that is great for your family, and a taste everyone will love. We used Sargento® Colby-Jack slices, but you can mix it up and use any flavor!

  • Use 8 inch round flour tortilla shells!! I buy whole wheat ones & they work perfectly.

  • Use at least 6-8 slices of ham per tortilla. Also, feel free to switch it up and use turkey or other meat!!

  • VERY IMPORTANT! For best results, roll tortillas tightly.

  • Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight before cutting to get nice cuts!!!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 10-15 slices of Sargento® Cheese (I used Colby-Jack!!)

  • 5 8-inch wheat or flour tortillas

  • 20-25 slices sliced ham or turkey (freshly cut from the deli!)

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (1 package)

  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard

  • ½ tablespoon honey mustard

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder

  • Salt and pepper to taste



INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Spread a layer of softened cream cheese in the center of one of the flour tortillas. Leave a 1-inch border without cream cheese.

  2. Top with 2-3 slices of Sargento® Cheese and 3-4 slices of ham.

  3. Tightly roll up tortilla and wrap in plastic.

  4. Put in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.

  5. When ready to serve, cut off ends and cut into small or large slices!
