I love making salads in the summer. Most of the time I just throw together whatever ingredients are in the fridge, but there's one I absolutely love and that's any type of taco salad. We don't make it often because even despite my best efforts to hide foods, my husband ALWAYS gets into the Doritos … Continue Reading..
5. These Days of Mine: Through the Window I just love every single one of Dianna’s posts. She’s a true storyteller and always has the most beautiful photos to share highlighting her life in Southeast Virginia. This post in particular shows what a huge heart she has. No, I’ve never met her in … Continue Reading..
I am not a great cook. I don't freak out if my food isn't organic. I love Taco Bell, even though I am pretty sure they use Grade D meat. But regardless of what I put in my body, I want my children to have good eating habits and I'm a big believer that good eating starts at a young age (yes, this … Continue Reading..
I don’t know about y’all, but there’s one local summer event I can’t wait to check out: the Fairy Tale Art: Illustrations from Children’s Books at Edsel & Eleanor Ford House. Being a history nerd, I became enchanted with the Ford House a few years back and even wrote about my visit there in my … Continue Reading..
One of my best memories is a trip the hubby and I took for our first anniversary, prior to baby. It wasn't anywhere expensive - we just decided to take a road trip and be tourists in our own state. ((For those in Michigan, we traveled north to Traverse City and the Leelanau Peninsula, and then took … Continue Reading..
I LOVE garage sales, thrift stores, estate sales Mom 2 Mom sales - anywhere I can find a deal. I might be an old lady trapped in a 27-year-old body, but I can't help myself...I'd much prefer repurpose something than buy it new. Plus, old stuff - especially when it comes to home decor - has SO much … Continue Reading..
I have loved making collages since I was a tween. Always a colorful child, I still can picture the one I scotch taped on my closet doors when I was 14…full of things like random ads, poems and words I would cut out of teen magazines. Now that I’m a mom, my collages have a more techy … Continue Reading..
Every mom has her list of websites she turns to for information. After digging into what feels like a bazillion of them, I've come up with a list of 5 that have become my go-to spots for learning about topics and news surrounding parenting. 1. KellyMom.com – This site is chock-full of great … Continue Reading..
Since having a baby, I hear a lot of “I’m glad I’m not raising my kids now during the age of the internet,” from the older crowd. Usually, I just shrug and say “It is what it is,” and leave it at that. But lately, it has me thinking. I understand the world has changed and seems like a scarier … Continue Reading..

I was excited this week when I saw one of the VlogTalk prompts was to vlog about something you are currently obsessed with. My obsession? Hearing my baby laugh. One thing I have learned as a new mom: the crazier I act, the more Little K will laugh. And believe me, I act crazy...from making toys out … Continue Reading..
I am a gal who loves to be on the go. Living on a budget can sometimes hinder my ability to just do as I please. I always like to say if I can help my family save money in one place, we can spend the leftovers doing things we love to do like eating out, going to local attractions or maybe, one day, … Continue Reading..
