Instagram Account Deleted! :(

Hey there lovelies! I sit here typing this post, pretty much distraught. This afternoon I went to post a picture and I was prompted to sign back into Instagram, which never happens. When I signed in, it said that my account had been disabled due to a “violation of terms and conditions.” I panicked immediately of course! I have done nothing that violates the terms and conditions. I even went and read through them just to be sure! I assumed I had been hacked and spent the better part of the evening texting a few friends and crying over this. Come to find out later this evening that this did not only happen to me and has happened to a lot of people and their accounts have been deleted. One of the rumors is that they deleted people who do not use the Instagram camera…I pretty much ONLY use the Instagram camera so that rumor must be false. As of now, there has been no response from Instagram. I look forward to hearing what they have to say on this and hope they plan to reinstate all of our accounts. I love Instagram to post pictures of the little presidents and our life and to follow other peeps, but I also use it as the main way I run my business. My sole business comes from Instagram , which I love.  What’s even more upsetting is that it happened today. The day I launched my new blog. The day that I have been working so hard to get to and now, before everyone could even have a chance to see the new blog, my account has been deleted and doesn’t exist. I have submitted the forms to Instagram regarding this, but I honestly have no idea how long it will take to get the situation remedied or if it will be remedied, which makes me even more sad. I have met some amazing people through Instagram. I have made friends, I have gained business, I have learned lot of new things and lessons. We always says it’s an “insta family” and that’s so true. I am hoping that Instagram will reinstate my “littlepresidents” account as well as the mass amount of other accounts that I have heard were deleted! I have had that account for over a year now and I have over 1500 pictures that are meaningful to me and over 1500 followers that are meaningful as well. I’m hoping we wake up tomorrow with a solution to what I am assuming is a mass glitch, but if not, please know that I will create a new Insta name and be back soon. I will be so bummed to lose the “littlepresidents” handle though. :( The name alone is so meaningful to me. I will tell you that all of you who have emailed and text me mean so much to me. This has been so upsetting and I am so glad to know you all have my back! For now, please feel free to follow me at our new blog and hopefully I will be back on Instagram soon…with my old user name or a new one!


We Moved!

The Little Presidents and I packed our bags and headed over to

Fancy Mother's Day Wish List~

Happy Wednesday lovelies! Hope you had a fabulous weekend and are having a great week! It's been a bit hectic here...Can you believe it's already May?! I can't! Mother's Day is coming up on Sunday! Craziness! Since it's a day dedicated to mamas, I decided to come up with my own, fancy Mother's Day wish list! There is lots of glitter, sequins and pink in between sippy cups of milk and diaper changes around our house! :) Here are a few fabulous and fancy items that I would LOVE to receive as a gift! :) I'm also secretly hoping that the Tedster made me some piece of crafty amazingness at school! :) I will see on Friday! 

1. Miu Miu Glitter Sunnies ~They are glitter sunnies! Need I say more?!
2. Kate Spade Confetti Statement Necklace ~A fab statement necklace and even better, it looks like confetti!
3. Daiquiri Wallet ~I love zipper wallets! This is so fun!
4. Felix Weekender Duffle ~I need this for a fabulous weekend trip!
5. J.Crew Lillian Glitter Low Wedges ~These remind me of my Target glitter flats but with a wedge and extra glitter! Woohoo! These will def be added to my shoe collection!
6. Confetti Paper Placemats Pad ~ I love this idea of using disposable placemats. We rarely use placemats because they always seem to be in the wash! The gold confetti on these are so fun and fancy and you can toss them after you use them!

Onto a delish and simple and healthy recipe! 

This recipe has been floating around Pinterest and I have been meaning to try it for awhile now! I modified the original recipe a tiny bit and here are my ingredients. To see the original recipe, you can click the link above!

I had a tiny hiccup while prepping these. Ha! 

Slow-Cooker Greek Stuffed Peppers 

  • 4 large bell peppers (I used a color mix) 
  • 1 can (15 ounces) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup crumbled fat free feta (4 ounces) (I would add an extra 1/2-1 cup next time)
  • Trader Joe's Brown Rice, Red Rice and Black Barley mix (I used 2 bags) 
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • {I think I would add fresh basil next time as well}

{they're not pretty but they taste delish!}

  1. Slice a very thin layer from the base of each bell pepper so they sit flat (I didn't do this and they were fine) Slice off tops just below stem. Discard stems; chop tops, and place in a medium bowl. Remove ribs and seeds from peppers.
  2. Add beans, feta, rice/barely mix, scallions, garlic salt, and oregano in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and toss to combine. Stuff peppers with the mixture; place upright in slow cooker. Cover; cook on high, 4 hours
    That's it! So simple and really yummy! My buddy did an awesome spin on these back in March and brought me one for dinner (yay!) and they were so delish!!!! I planned to add zucchini like she did but realized I didn't have one while I was prepping! Oh well! We were discussing the fact, that there are so many possibilities with this recipe and so many ways to modify it! I have an Italian recipe that I'm going to attempt next week and I am already excited for it! Will post the recipe for sure!
    Have a happy Thursday!!! Two more days till the weekend! Get the cocktails ready!
