Dear younger me, I see your eyes rolling round and round. You’re infamous for it, even outside your family. Even though you think it’s a cute signature move, it’s not. Listen, I know you won’t care what I have to say because let’s face it, I’m “stupid and don’t know anything,” but considering I come… Continue reading Dear Younger Me
Ok, disclaimer time…I don’t buy much for O these days because of our super tight budget. However, she just had her first birthday, and random people have just been very generous! I wanted to put a quick list together of the things that have totally saved my sanity and I would buy myself over and… Continue reading 5 Practical MUST Haves for Toddlers
To be honest, normally I would have to really think of something out of the ordinary hustle and bustle of life that I might be proud of. Not the case this time. In mid-September, my husband suddenly lost his youth ministry job, due to irreconcilable differences on doctrine…the church essentially feared and didn’t want to… Continue reading October Writing Challenge: Something I’m Proud of This Week

After October was two days underway, I suddenly decided I wanted to challenge myself to actually write every day this month. With raising my family, writing tends to get pushed…I’m sure that sounds familiar to some! I went onto Pinterest, and other than these seemingly being so three years ago, the ones I was coming across… Continue reading October Writing Challenge!
So yesterday, I got a wacky idea that I should do an Instagram challenge…already in day 2 of October, because I’m that smooth. I’m really bad at taking photos. And I can’t ever seem to remember that taking photos of anything other than people is a totally fine habit to have. So, I thought doing a… Continue reading October Instagram Challenge!
Hello lovelies! Time for our October challenge! If you are anything like me, you are constantly trying and usually failing at making a multitude of positive nutrition choices. You know, the “starting tomorrow, I’m going to make these five changes in my routine, I HAVE to do it this time…!” I know we all have… Continue reading October Challenge: Habit of Health
Ever had one of those days that by 8:30am the baby is blueberry blue up to her knees and elbows, and when you take her in for a bath, discover two lone sticky diaper tabs on the floor-a gift from the dog as evidence of what happened to the last poop-filled diaper in the trash?… Continue reading Are You Failing Today Too, Mama?
