The Art of Frugal

I hate the word cheap. I’m not what I would consider to be cheap, but I am frugal. I like to save money. I love getting cash back. If there’s a coupon, I’m going to use it and I’m going to try to use another one. Customer loyalty cards and rewards are my jam. When I’m ordering…

Helicopter Mom

When I got my son dressed this morning, I chose the cutest jeans to go with a striped long sleeved onesie. Paired it with some cute baby Sperry’s. Hair on point. I was super happy with the cute outfit and how put together he looked. Mom point for me, right? And then breakfast happened. Egg…

The End of an Era

We had a rough start. I thought nursing would be a breeze. I thought he’d come out, be placed on my chest, and just be ready to start nursing. And then he didn’t. The hours ticked by slowly and I began to worry that it wasn’t going to happen for us. Slowly, it did. The…

Best friends.

28 years of life. 12 years together. 6 years of marriage. 1 child. 2 dogs. 4 moves. So many numbers make up our time together. We met when we were in high school. The story of our initial meeting is…. Colorful, to say the least. To quickly sum it up– two silly kids on a…

Mom Guilt

The mom guilt has been real lately. Well, if I’m being honest, it’s been real since day one. It just got more intense once I went back to work and hasn’t eased up since then. I never thought I’d feel the mom guilt. I thought that my general lack of feelings about most situations would…

What’s in your diaper bag?

What’s in your Diaper Bag? We always see those “What’s in your Purse?” posts and let’s be real, we haven’t carried a purse in months. Unless a wallet thrown in a diaper bag counts? But we love hearing what works for other Momma’s on a daily basis, so we thought it’d be fun to hear…

To my Daughter; on Food and Fitness

I warmed up my leftovers from our midweek, impulsive dinner date the night before. The microwave beeped. I walked over and took it out, salivating from the rich flavors of the vegetables and cheese. Glancing at the bowl of greasy chicken and sauce, I reached in the fridge to grab a bag of mixed greens…

Communication 1.0.

One day I was having a conversation with my students about how we talk to people. There’s 2 things I always tell my students: 1). I will never lie to them; and 2). I will always try my hardest to speak kindness towards them and promote kindness in my classroom. I was sitting with two…

Currently: Likes, Loves, & Must Haves!

Here are some totally random things we’re currently loving that we wanted to share with you! Happy Wednesday! Good Eats: Kailyn (and family) is loving this One-Pot Cheesy Taco Pasta recipe lately.
