New Donut Shop: There's a new doughnut shop in town. The sign is up at Destination Doughnuts on 106 Ave and 124 Street (several blocks from Doughnut Party) but the doors aren't quite opened yet (they're aiming for the next few weeks). It's a family operation with a lot of . . .
Are you a tad bit territorial over your kids' names? I'll be honest: I don't want anyone having the same name as my kid. Now, I get that this is far from realistic but it comes from a good place. When we were pregnant with Wyatt, there were a few friends and acquaintances . . .
It sure feels good to unplug, doesn't it? Don't get me wrong: I love social media, texting with friends, researching and writing on my laptop, and watching TV. But powering down not only feels like a deep breath in my soul, I feel it's necessary for my mental health. Being a . . .

Hi, friends! As I do every few weeks here at KariSkelton.com, here's a recap of what we've been up to and what we've worn along the way, featured on my Instagram! This month has been all about food, so thank goodness for stylish stretchy jeans and oversized sweaters to . . .
Haunted Pumpkin Festival at Prairie Garden: This is the perfect fall outing with your family! I would plan it as a whole day, or at least half-day outing, because there's so much to take in. Corn mazes, haunted houses, ghost trains, pumpkin picking... and the list goes on. . . .
Body lotions, creams, butter: whatever title you want to use, they're far too expensive for my liking. How is something so simple (that you know is inexpensive to produce) so costly? (I feel the same way about toss cushions but that's a topic for another day.) I have . . .
I've found myself developing a bit of a bad habit: plopping Wyatt into his high chair in front of the computer or the TV to eat his snacks and meals. It seemed like the perfect solution! He could sit there, eating (and supposedly entertained) while I wash the dishes, return . . .
Restaurant Closed: They've only been opened a few months but Alta on Jasper Ave is now permanently closed. I'm so bummed we didn't get to check this out! Word is Owner and Chef Ben Staley wanted to give all the attention to The Alder Room, which he also owns and is next door . . .
We'll likely be switching Wyatt to a big boy bed within the next year (despite the fact that if it was up to me, he'd be in a crib until he's 18), so I thought it would be fun to give you a peek into his room before the change-over. When we were designing the space, it . . .
