United States

On Sunday, May 6th, with the help of my fabulous co-hosts Jen Znosko, Amy Schuster, and Julie Fowler, I hosted a Mother’s Day brunch to benefit Westchester elementary.  It was a fun way to raise money for the school while also taking time to celebrate moms who work so hard for their families and communities. The goal of the party was to allow moms to have fun and celebrate Mother’s Day free of distractions for a few hours.

Just like the selfie scavenger hunt we hosted back in April, this was also a fundraising sign-up party. In honor of the beautiful spring weather, we created a light brunch menu. First up were some cute “mom-osas” served with pink-and-white straws and “spa” water (fruit-infused water). Along with plenty of brunch finger foods, a simply decadent chocolate tasting courtesy of Bissinger’s Chocolates was a perfect way to round out the menu.

Mom-osa brunch

We wanted to keep the brunch menu simple yet delicious, so we chose finger foods and appetizers that everyone was sure to enjoy. Nothing is more simple and scrumptious brunch food than skewers. You’ll see there were several on the Mother’s Day brunch menu, and they certainly didn’t disappoint!

Here’s what was on the menu:

“Mom-osas”

The perfect fun brunch drink to celebrate amongst fellow hard working moms.  The stunning signs were done by Elizabeth at Gladly Designs.

Spa Water

We loved having two different types of infused water to keep things fresh and light. My favorites were Detox Cucumber (cucumber infused water) and Citrus (oranges, lemons, and basil).  These H2Os were beautiful and refreshing!

Veggie Cups and Dip

Veggie cups

The veggie cups with dip were simple, delicious and healthy; a can’t-miss brunch food idea!  Simply put some dip in the bottom of clear plastic cups, then place carrot and celery sticks, broccoli and a tiny skewer of grape tomatoes in the cup on top of the dip. These made such a bright, colorful, and fun addition to our brunch food.

Bacon Skewers

Bacon Skewers

If you want an amazing brunch item that looks simple but is anything but simple in the taste department, then trust me—these bacon skewers MUST for your next gathering! They were spicy, sweet and simply amazing! Amy found these taste bud electrifiers on Pinterest, and I couldn’t stop eating them. Get the recipe here

Yogurt parfaits with Irene’s granola

Irene's granola parfait

Here’s another simple brunch food idea that was beautiful and easy to assemble. For our yogurt parfaits, we simply layered yogurt over fresh-cut fruit, then topped it off with Irene’s soft granola for a little bowl of heaven!  Irene’s granola is made locally in Kirkwood and is amazing.

Quiche

Momosa brunch

You can’t host a brunch without serving quiche, right? It’s a great brunch food since it’s filling, but pairs perfectly with finger foods and appetizers. For our quiche, we decided to offer some variety with a two-pack from Costco. We chose the spinach-artichoke and cheddar-broccoli flavors from La Terra Fina, and we were super pleased.  They were healthy and delicious!  Check out their site for a coupon.  My friend Jen said the spinach-artichoke dip is amazing.  I can’t wait to try that too!

Fruit Kabobs

Who doesn’t love a fruit kabobs?   These little gems were on our brunch menu! So light, so delicious, and so easy! Cut the fruit and skewer.

Donut Hole pops

Donut Pops

This was an easy brunch treat to assemble and provided such a fun presentation.  My friend Julie bought a box of Munchkins donut holes from Dunkin Donuts.  We skewered each one and served.  Perfection!

All these foods were super easy for a busy mom who doesn’t have time to be slaving away in the kitchen.  These would be great ideas if you are hosting a baby or wedding shower, graduation parties or having brunch with your favorite girls.  Whatever your event, this easy and simple menu will give you more time to toast with your friends.  Cheers!

XOXO

Sarah~

Special thanks to my co-hostesses Jen, Amy, and Julie.
The businesses who made this party special:  Elizabeth from Gladly designs for all the beautiful signs and food tents, Irene’s granola for the amazing granola.

Stikwood focal wall

A couple weeks ago I reached out to Stephanie Pohlman @stephniepohlmandesigns to discuss some spring updates for my home.  I definitely wanted to paint my front door, but also wanted Stephanie’s suggestions for a few more updates. Stephanie had made an Instagram post about these amazing wood focal walls she had done.  So, I asked her to bring some samples. As soon as I saw them in-person, I became obsessed, and knew this was the perfect product for my spring refresh!

Check out the before and after photos.

Before photo:

Living room before

After photos with the Stikwood tiles.

Stikwood wall

Stikwood is a peel-and-stick wood plank product that’s made from reclaimed lumber.  The company was started by Jerry and Laura McCall of Sacramento, California in 2012.  Jerry is a master woodworker, so the couple wanted to combine his skills with Laura’s creative vision to make an eye-catching décor product that also reuses natural resources.

Most U.S. family rooms have large flat screen TVs that dominate a wall.  While our family room has a mantle and fireplace directly under the TV, I still wanted another element that would direct visitor’s eyes away from the entertainment component.   

Stikwood was the perfect product!

Stikwood wall

While paint and wallpaper can add a perceived texture to walls, what I like best about Stikwood, is it adds physical texture which can’t be achieved with other products.  Monochromatic is very popular now in interior design, so that’s why I chose white to go with our mantle, and a herringbone design to make a big statement.  Go to Stikwood’s website to check out the wide variety of colors and textures available, all of which will add a lot of “wow” factor to your living space.  Stikwood has also been featured on HGTV’s show Property Brothers.  Stikwood products can only be purchased on the company’s website http://www.stikwood.com

Stikwood wall

While Stikwood is a D.I.Y. product, my obsession with herringbone required professional help to make it happen.  I chose to hire a local contractor to install it because I herringbone requires a lot of precise cutting, especially around windows and mantles.  If you live in the St. Louis metro area, I highly recommend One and Done Contracting. Their customer service and attention to detail were amazing!  Check out the time lapse video below to see the crew work their magic.

I was ecstatic with how everything turned out!  Plus, Stephanie helped me add some small details like new pillows, blanket ladder, ottomans and a fun chair that updated and pulled the room together.  It’s totally magazine-worthy room by my favorite designer Stephanie Pohlman.

Sarah Out and About

Mom to Mom

Hey, I’m Sarah.  I’m a working mom with two high-energy boys in St Louis, Missouri.  I work as a pharmaceutical sales rep for a fortune 500 company. I love spending time with my family and friends, traveling, planning parties and all things style.  Every day I try to find a balance between work/family and live life to the fullest by always have something fun on the horizon.

Social handles:

IG: SarahOutAndAboutBlog
FB:  SarahOutAndAbout
Twitter: @sarahoutandabout
Email:  sarahoutandaboutblog@gmail.com

Blog/Business Questions:

Why did you start your blog?

I wanted a way to connect with other working moms who have similar interests and needed a fun creative outlet away from work.  My goal for the blog is to be a platform where moms can share conversations, tips and tricks, ideas, new hot spots, good deals, like you’d share with your best girlfriends.  As my my 3 year old Mason says “Sharing is caring.”

What are your favorite things about blogging?

A couple of my favorite things about blogging are:   meeting so many new people and learning something new.  Another favorite is brainstorming and coming up with the content to share with you.  

There are a ton of blogs centered around style and travel, but my blog is geared toward the busy/working moms.

Where did you get your IG handle?

I’m always on the go searching for new places to explore, so “Sarah Out And About” seemed perfect.

The advice you would give someone wanting to start a blog?

It is a lot of work.  It is extremely challenging operating a blog but if your blog is about all the things you would genuinely do in your life anyway it is so fun and rewarding sharing your passions and learning from others.  Find your niche and go for it!

Who are your favorite bloggers?

My FAV’s are:  @HiSugarPlum, @LivinginYellow and @LivingwithLandyn

How do you balance work and family?

It’s a daily challenge, but I try to maximize the time I have with my kids and make daily activities special.  We always have several outings planned, so when I get stressed with work, I have something to look forward to that’s a break from my job.  

What are qualities you try and role model for your kids?

  • Always set high goals, and give it your all.
  • Learning is a lifelong practice
  • “YOLO”, so make the most of every opportunity.
  • Failure is part of the journey, expect it and learn from it.  

What would you tell your younger self?

Life won’t always go as you planned.  Embrace the hard times, enjoy the great times, and be grateful for each day.  I’d also tell my younger self to be very particular with who you surround yourself with.  Find your tribe of positive people that bring you joy and energy.

Who inspires you?

My mom. Most amazing lady ever.  Beyond grateful for her.

The advice you’d give to other working moms?

Give yourself a break and don’t expect perfection.    You are doing a great job and don’t compare yourself to others.  Spend time doing the things you enjoy with the people you love.

Make the most of the time you have with your family.  Try to focus on quality time over quantity. I always try to be present, and embrace the individual personalities of my boys.

Personal Questions:

What is your guilty pleasure?

Magazines (LOVE them), Jet’s Pizza with turbo crust (cheap and sooo freeking good) and The cookie skillet dessert at Bricktop’s,

I also LOVE The Bachelor and Real Housewives!!  

A bad habit you want to break?

Drinking Diet Coke

What do you put in your coffee?

During the week just vanilla almond milk.  

On the weekends I add a packet of light hot chocolate to make a skinny mocha

What podcast do you listen to?

“How I Built This” by Guy Raz and “The Influencer podcast” by Julie Solomon

Favorite beauty tip?

My dermatologist told me sunscreen, Retinol, and moisturizer are the most important skin products.  Everything else is just marketing.

Favorite beauty product?

I could use help in the beauty department so I’d say self tanner.  I love a good spray tan from Shine and use the L’Oreal Self-Tanning Towelettes when I need a little glow.

Bucket List travel spot?

Iceland, my new obsession.
My other travel goal is to get my boys to all 50 states before they graduate.  

Best place in the world you have been?  

There are so many places around the world I’ve been that were amazing, but doing a photo safari in South Africa’s Kruger National Park was such a once in a lifetime adventure.  I also love Venice and Paris. As for the United States, I went to Alaska when I was 13, and it was an unbelievable trip. Hiking the Grand Canyon when I was 8 was also a highlight too.  I am at my happiest when I’m traveling to anywhere I have never been before.

Favorite App

Kidzxplor (mom lifesaver!)

Something people don’t know about you.

I grew up in a tiny town Gordonville Mo (population 500) just outside of Cape Girardeau MO

Craziest thing you have ever done?

Shark diving in South Africa

Most exciting moment?

In college, I went with a group of girlfriends to California.  We went to the Price Is Right and I ended up getting on the show and winning the showcase showdown.  Best day ever!!

I hope you enjoyed reading these FAQ and stay tuned for more mom to mom FAQ each week.  Drop me a line and let me know what we have in common.  I’d love to hear from you.

XOXO  Sarah

Mom’s night out, Fashion talk

After the selfie scavenger hunt we went to the bistro at Nordstrom for a special spring trends presentation by Amber Kemp, the Nordstrom personal stylist.

Amber discussed two topics:

  • Spring trends and pieces to add to your wardrobe
  • A wardrobe staple checklist everyone should invest in.

Amber Kemp Nordstrom personal stylist

If you have not shopped with Amber, you’re missing out.  Her services at Nordstrom are totally free.  She’s a major time-saver because when you work with her she’ll find out what you’re looking for ahead of time, and have everything ready for you in the fitting room.

If you love to shop (but don’t have the time), hate shopping or need help putting outfits together…Amber is your girl.  I’d highly suggest booking an appointment.  She assists people shopping for:

  • Special events
  • Weddings,
  • Finding seasonal updates,
  • Entire wardrobe overhauls
  • Work Trips
  • Vacations
  • Even help to find the perfect pair of denim.

You can even bring in pieces from home you don’t know how to wear, and she’ll help you.  If you’re in the St Louis area, just call her to schedule an appointment:  (314) 452-6589.  Or you can reach her via email: Amber.R.Kemp@nordstrom.com

Amber talked about runway trends for spring that can be turned into wearable pieces for busy on-the-go moms.  When added to a wardrobe, these items make for some fresh updates.  In addition, she shared a short list of wardrobe staples everyone should invest in.

Here’s what’s hot for spring:

  1.  Monochromatic- wearing the same color head-to-toe (all white, all black or all denim), and accessorizing with color.
  2. Pattern mixing- mixing up florals, gingham plaids, and stripes.
  3. A dramatic sleeve
  4. Sheer pieces

My favorite spring trends

 

Staple wardrobe pieces everyone should have:

  1. Classic blazer- perfect for work with a skirt or weekends with distressed jeans and pumps.
  2. White T-shirt- fitted so you can layer or a loose one if wearing alone.
  3. White jeans- lighter wash denim for spring, (try different pairs on to get a good fit and thickness).
  4. Long sleeve basic reversible t-shirt
  5. Bermuda shorts- substitute for what you would wear pants with.  Also try with pumps in summer, or with a blazer.
  6. Denim jacket- always good to have both a fitted and loose one, depending on what you’re wearing.

Here are some of my favorite wardrobe staples here:

While Amber was updating us on spring trends and wardrobe staples we were sipping wine and indulging with our Bissingers gummy pandas. A big thank you to Nordstrom and Amber for orchestrating a fantastic talk and for the beauty bag and for Bissinger’s spoiling us with amazing sweet treats.

CoCo Key Water Park Resort

Recently we had an opportunity to stay at the Adam’s Mark Hotel and CoCo Key Water Park in Kansas City during my boys’ spring break.  It’s about a 4-hour drive from St Louis right off Interstate 70, directly across the highway from the Royals’ and Chiefs’ stadiums.  It’s affordable family fun that gets you out of town in a few hours.

We arrived at the Adam’s Mark Hotel the lobby area was updated and inviting.  Our room was clean and simple no-frills accommodations. The outside of the hotel could use some updating, the good news is they currently have plans in place for an outside renovation. All my boys could think about was getting to the waterpark.

CoCo Key Water Park

According to my boys, CoCo Key Water Park was amazing!  Some hotels pools may have a slide or two, but never a full-fledged water park.  Even if you are not staying at the hotel you can still go to the water park.  It was a perfect fit for both of my boys, who are 7 and 3.  Logan, my oldest, was tall enough to ride all the slides.  CoCo Key also features a lazy river, splash area and lily pad adventure for little ones, and even basketball goals.   There were some local residents who were having their birthday party at CoCo Key. There are cabanas along the side of the pools for rent and a restaurant for food and drinks. No outside food is allowed.

The hotel has a huge arcade. In addition, they host several activities throughout the day, such as movie night, dance parties, face painting and appearances from CoCo the Bird.

For all the details check out http://www.cocokeykansascity.com

Logan’s favorite was: The big slides
Mason’s favorite was: The little kid slides
Mom’s favorite was: The boys slept like rocks after spending most of the day there.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The weather was not so great when we were in Kansas City but it didn’t matter because Coco Key was inside and heated.  It was a fun place to stay for my kiddos while in Kansas City for the weekend that doesn’t break the bank. My boy’s keep asking when we are going back.  If you are needing a quick fun and affordable family getaway, Coco Key will have you kids smiling the entire visit.

Choo Choo,  All aboard the Kozy Kaboose.  Over Christmas break, I took my boys on the ultimate little boy staycation.    I gave them clues to where we were going and when they saw the caboose they couldn’t believe their sweet little eyes.  Spring break and Summer break are approaching and KOA’s campground in Eureka, Missouri has just the answer for those wanting a memorable camping experience without battling the St Louis crazy hot/cold weather.  

Kozy Kaboose

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Kozy Kaboose authentic caboose has the original Route 66 nostalgic feel.  It was completely refitted to a modern condition.  If your child is a train enthusiast, they’ll go crazy over spending an overnight in this choo choo delight.  It sleeps four people comfortably; 2 adults and 2 children, with a queen size bed and a bunk that my boys couldn’t get enough of.  My youngest spent almost an hour just going up and down the ladder.  

Kozy Kaboose

 

 

The bathroom has a shower-tub combo.  A small fridge is supplied and is large enough to hold some basic food supplies and drinks.  When eating, or playing a fun game of candy land you sit at a cute booth that seats four.  Also, there’s a TV with over 20 channels, and swivels from the dining area to the bedroom location.     

Kozy Kaboose

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just steps from the back door, which has a porch with furniture, a grill and there is a fire ring that’s ready for roasting hot dogs and making s’mores.  My guys devoured more chocolate bars than anything else, which made bedtime a lengthy process.  Instead of purchasing pricey firewood, you can save yourself a lot of hassle by going to Academy Sports.  They have these convenient tree stumps, which have a core that’s soaked in lighter fluid.  All you have to do is light the middle and you have a toasty fire that lasts around two hours.  We added some Funky Colored Flames, that are also available at Academy, and your kids will be mesmerized by the variety of colors it produces.     

Kozy Kaboose

 

 We stayed for just one night, but given the chance, multiple nights would make for an awesome staycation.  They gave us a scavenger hunt on arrival the kids could hunt for.  When it’s warmer they have a pool, a playground and tons of fun kid-friendly activities.  For more information check them out at Kozy caboose Eureka

So, gather your family and get on board for an experience that’ll create great family memories!  If you missed our other family-friendly trip ideas check them out here:

My Karuna organic drinks.

The beverage section of most grocery stores is flooded with options.  As tasty as a lot of them are, most are loaded with sugars, additives, and preservatives.  Whether it’s a drink to re-hydrate you or one to serve as a meal replacement, navigating away from unhealthy chemicals is sometimes a challenge.

I recently came across My Karuna a line of drinks that will keep you on a healthy track, leaving you feeling better about what you’re putting in your body.

My Karuna

My Karuna is a St. Louis-based company started by Angela Zeng in 2017.  The core philosophy behind their drinks is compassion for good health.  Their four main categories are coffee, smoothie, detox, and hydration.

As an on-the-go working mom, I need a major jolt of caffeine to start my day.  However, I’ve found that the average cup of coffee wears off halfway through the morning.  My Karuna offers two kinds of coffee drinks that are focused on extended energy, so you won’t experience a crash or drop-off like with most drinks.  The energy comes from not just the organic coffee beans, but the other power food ingredients.  Actually, the caffeine content and calorie count are significantly lower than a gourmet cup of coffee, so less is actually more in this case.  You can choose from their sesame or turmeric options.  Sesame promotes heart and bone health, and turmeric helps maintain a healthy inflammation response.  Both drinks are chock full of vitamins and minerals, like B6, copper, and manganese.  One of these will give you a steady level of energy so you can tackle whatever comes at you during the day.  My absolute favorite of the two drinks is the Boost Sesame coffee.

My Karuna coffee

My Karuna’s smoothie line is a fabulous alternative to the local smoothie store, whose choices are packed with sugars and unnecessary chemicals, even though they advertise as being a healthy addition to your diet.  My Karuna’s whole plant smoothies contain terrific levels of protein and fiber, and come in three different focuses: empower, pro-wellness and pro-fit.  While some other smoothies may cause concern about the fiber levels cooperating with their digestive system,  My Karuna’s is made with almond milk, which is easy on the tummy.  If I know I’m going to have a busy day and may have to work through lunch I’ll take a smoothie with me to drink on the go.  I like the pro-wellness flavor the best it has a sweet-tart taste.

My Karuna

One trend that has gained a lot of popularity in the past several years, is the detox line of products.  Whether drinks or a structured diet, the focus is to clean your body of toxins.  When you think of great antioxidant foods, one of the first that comes to mind is blueberries.  One bottle of My Karuna’s tonic contains the same ORAC level (a measurement of antioxidants) as 3.5 cups of blueberries!  St. Louis is notorious for being an area where people with allergies suffer during the spring, summer, and fall.  This drink is an absolute cure-in-a-bottle because many dedicated customers vouch that their allergies improved and they avoided paying for costly over-the-counter or prescribed medicines.  This product is also great to give to kids with their breakfast, ensuring a healthy start to the day.  To help make the taste more appealing to little ones, just add a little orange juice, and they’ll guzzle it down.

My Karuna with boys

 

 

 

 

 

My Karuna Detox with boysMost people don’t drink enough water during a day and tend to be under-hydrated.  My Karuna’s low-calorie whole plant tonic hydration formula is just the answer.  While re-hydrating you, you’ll also be getting a huge dose of Vitamin A, and the other organic ingredients promote healthy skin and hair; so you’ll feel and look good!

Now, remember that because all these drinks contain only the best organic ingredients, they’re not going to taste like the sugar-loaded drinks you’re used to.  It took me a little time to adjust to these healthy flavors, and now I crave them.  My kids are fans too.

My Karuna drinks can be found in Whole Foods, Dierbergs, Fresh Thyme and Straub’s in St. Louis.  To all my LA friends they are coming to you soon.  Check them out.  Which one are you ready to try?  To learn more check out MyKaruna.com

Target has a new line out in their women’s clothing department that has the best basics.  I did a little try on the session today at lunch and found so many versatile must-have pieces.  I tend to have a classic style when it comes to clothing but I love layering jackets and adding accessories to complete the entire look.

The new Universal Thread line at Target has so many great pieces.  In my opinion every wardrobe needs:

  1. Denim Jacket
  2. Denim Dress
  3. Classic solid top
  4. Olive jeans
