Everyone is obsessing over ‘The Croods’. It’s the latest and greatest from Dreamworks and is due to hit the big screen on March 22nd.

 The Croods is a prehistoric comedy adventure that follows the world’s first family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime when the cave that has always shielded them from danger is destroyed. Traveling across a spectacular landscape, the Croods discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures — and their outlook is changed forever.

Nicholas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan (yummy) Reynolds are just SOME of the big names attached to the animated adventure.

You can see so many great images from The Croods if you visit their Pinterest page at!! It’s a lot of fun.


In honor of the cave-family, I have a paleo friendly recipe to share. Smashed Steak Skewers with Cherry Barbecue Sauce!! Yes PLEASE. Click here to check it out.


Are you more of an arts and craft kinda girl? Well I have a really fun one that my children are just DYING to make.  A DIY terrarium tutorial!! The kids can get messy and then you can display a beautiful centerpiece on your kitchen table. Win-Win if you ask me.
