Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids and one lazy dog, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

About Me

I live in the Midwest with my husband, two wonderful children (for the purposes of this blog, they will be called Bernardo and Higgins), and a very lazy dog. I worked outside of the home for years, went to part time after my oldest was born, and am now a stay at home mom. My husband and I also ran an entertainment company for several years.

In late 2011, I published my first book (I have always wanted to be a writer)! Animals To Trains: A Children's Birthday Party Guide is about planning and throwing children's birthday parties. It goes through several party themes and each party is broken down into invitations, decorations, activities, food, cake, and favors. I love throwing my boys birthday parties and tend to go a little overboard.

After finishing the book, I still had lots of ideas that were not birthday related (close to a binder full). My husband finally told me I should start a blog and do something with them. So here I am!

I hope you find something useful on here. If there are any ideas you want to see on the blog, please let me know!
