My Almost 40 Trying for Baby Story and Simple Ways to Increase Your Chances of Getting Pregnant

When I was in my 20s and early 30s, life was happening. My career was everything. Working hard, and playing harder was at the top of my list. Planning for a family still seemed like an eternity away. It wasn't until I was 35, was married for slightly over 1 year when we decided to start a family. I worked out a schedule in my head so we could have two kids spaced appropriately. Well... things don't always work out that way. Here's how it happened for us with some simple ways to increase your chances of getting pregnant.

What to Do with Kids in Osaka


This year, our family made a couple trips to Osaka, Japan with our preschooler and toddler in tow. We really enjoyed all the family activities and attractions in and around this city. We are a mostly vegan family, so we try to avoid all the animal attractions like zoos and aquariums, but luckily if you are looking for things to do with kids in Osaka without paying to see sad animals in small cages or fish, there is still plenty to do!

LEGO Stamping Salt Dough Valentines Craft

We've been trapped inside a lot this winter while we've been in Japan. It is SO cold here!!! Salt dough has saved us from extreme boredom or excessive screen time a few times. Salt dough, perhaps due to its squishy sensory nature, is something that can keep my little kids occupied. LEGO is another one of our go-to toys, so I thought it be fun to combine the two. Since it's just about Valentine's Day, I pulled out the heart shaped cookie cutters and went for the holiday theme!

Vegan Valentines Hummus and Hearts Healthy Snack


Valentine's Day is almost here and I had some fun coming up with some more cute and healthy holiday theme vegan food to serve my loves. These little hors d'oeuvres are made with plain and sun-dried tomato hummus, toasted bread, cherry or small Roma tomatoes, carrots (mine are yellow and the purple skin kind) and cilantro. These snacks are fun and easy to make with a sharp knife, a scissor, and a little patience.

Challenger Sports British Soccer Camp for American Kids and Promo Code

* This is a sponsored post written on behalf of British Soccer Camps.


Summer is just around the corner and we are already thinking about what activities and sports our kids can do to keep them happy, healthy, and active. One of the things we wanted to do with our son this year was a soccer camp. He did a toddler soccer class when he was a tiny little guy, but this year, he has been tearing it up on the playground whenever someone puts a ball in front of him. I think it's time for him to get a proper coaching from British Soccer Camps with locations throughout the US!

Vegan Mozzarella and Easy Mini-Pizza Recipe


We are all about the easy recipes in this house. When we were kids one of our favorite meals that I know was probably super easy for my mom to put together was English muffin pizzas. We also did them on bagels or bagel bites. Since the family has headed deeply into vegan-land we've tried to replicate some of these easy family favorites but store-bought vegan mozzarella can be expensive, hard-to-find, or simply non-existent in some areas! We were so happy to find this EASY and versatile plant based mozzarella cheese style recipe and it works great on our childhood fave.
