Guest Blogger Series: A last-minute salad for Labor Day

This week, Mel from The Larson Lingo is sharing a delicious salad recipe with us. And the best part is, it's so quick and easy to make. If you're looking for one last item to add to your Labor Day dinner tonight, this yummy recipe just might do the trick.

Spinach & Strawberry Salad with Poppyseed Dressing
All you need is a bag of fresh spinach, a red onion (I used pre-diced onions because my eyes are SO sensitive to cutting onions!), a container of strawberries, a bag of sliced almond accents & a poppyseed dressing.

Wash & Slice up your strawberries and then throw everything in a salad bowl.
Toss with the poppyseed dressing & voila! You have a delicious & healthy salad!
This salad is perfect for a Labor Day BBQ!
I also make this salad all the time for baby showers & bridal showers!


Thanks for sharing, Mel!

How to swaddle with an Aiden+Anais blanket

We are crazy about the Aiden + Anais swaddle blankets in our house! I made this video for a friend who asked about our swaddle technique and decided I should share it on here as well in case it could work for any of y'all too.

Ryan is one month old in this video and weighs just under 11lbs. These blankets with this swaddle method have been our go-to sleep helper since we brought him home from the hospital.
