Chef Harold

How cute is Chef Harold in these pictures?! I did a video review of the play kitchen he got for Christmas, which is the KidKraft Uptown Espresso Kitchen. He absolutely loves it and we play with it every day. The personalized chef's hat and apron were also Christmas gifts and were made by the Etsy shop BreastFriendsConnect. Obviously he'll need to grow into the apron, but he loves putting the hat on and off himself (if I'm being honest he could use a bit more practice) and I love that she sized it to fit perfectly now but it adjusts to fit, literally forever because I can make it fit me!

Definitely head over to YouTube to watch Harold give a tour of his kitchen. It's pretty cute! :)

It's Finally 2018!

Happy New Year! It is finally 2018! I am happy to close the book on 2017 and crack into a new calendar for a fresh start. I want to read more, exercise more, drink more water, blog more...and to just to give the word less a little use, I want to feel stressed LESS.

If you are not a consistent follower over on YouTube then you may be a bit out of the loop on some of the changes over there. I have decided to give the ManfridaTV channel a rest and move any future vlogs over to the Alice Manfrida channel. I will still be doing family vlogs from time to time, but they will be fewer and farther between. All of my content, except bookish videos, will be up on that main channel. I will still be putting videos up on the girlofyarn booktube channel and hopefully I can dedicate a little more energy over there.

Anyway, I thought I'd start this year's blog content off by looking back - all the way back to Christmas a couple of weeks ago! Ha! I vlogged on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so if you haven't already seen that video then you can see it HERE.

My first video of 2018 was a New Year's Goals video. I checked in with the goals I made for 2017 and set some new intentions for the year ahead. If you want to see that video click HERE.

I hope that the first week of the new year is going well for you. Thanks reading and watching!
