We had friends over tonight and I am SO glad to have started a friendship with this family! My friend and I have a ton in common (we even share the same name, haha) and her husband and 3 boys are so sweet and funny. We had a blast hanging out, playing games, and eating

I'm 1/4 way through the Thankful All Year Project! I'm thankful for slowing down and finding small things to be thankful for each day. What are you thankful for today?

Day 90: Cloth Diapers.

Cloth diapers are super awesome. Here is five reasons why I love them: Less garbage. We had 3 times the amount of trash going out before we switched to cloth. We are saving money. After looking at out utility bills, cost of diapers, wipes, detergent, etc we are saving quite a bit of money each

Today is one of the hard days for me. My nephew, Luke, passed away 5 years ago. He had hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and after multiple surgeries and a heart transplant he died just before his 3rd birthday. This year he would be 8 years old. I'm not sure why but this year I

Day 86: A*G*G*R*E*S*S*I*V*E.

By |January 25th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

For some reason I have more than my fair share of people making random comments to me. Sometimes they are nice, sometimes weird, sometimes downright rude. I don't know if I just come across as a push-over or as someone who really needs to have people make me aware of what they are thinking. I've

Day 85: A Dirty Secret.

There was a point when I would never wear something more than once between washings. There was a point when I'd never mix brown with black. Those

Am I the only one who can't resist the Dollar Store or dollar aisles at places like Target? It might seem like a weird thing to be thankful for but for anyone with small children to entertain on the cheap they are amazing resources! I'm always finding something great to use for tot school, craft

Day 83: Pay It Off.

By |January 22nd, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

I'm so excited for this year. We don't have a whole lot of debt (Ha! If you completely disregard the education loans which we have a significant fortune owed and still accumulating thanks to Kai being in graduate school.) but with crafty budgeting and using a snowballing payment system we will finally be able to
