Making Mom Friends in a Small Town


I grew up in a big town. And when I got married, I moved to a small town about 30+ minutes away. Not too far, but far enough not to visit every day. We don't have a lot of stuff going on in the town where I live, so I usually have to make the drive to do fun activities with my other friends with kids. I decided early on, I needed to make some … [Read more...]

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas- That Won’t Break the Bank


If you're like my hubby, you forgot this weekend was Mother's Day. He surprised me with an amazing gift this week (a new Kindle Fire) and then when I told him that there was a holiday this weekend, he was a little bummed he didn't save it for my gift. I usually get jewelry (hint hint), but now Hubby is digging me a new flower bed. So I told him … [Read more...]

The Busiest Season of Life


That title. I came up with it weeks ago. But I've been too darn busy to actually write this post! Seriously, not even joking...not even a little. Is this not the absolute busiest, in the trenches, rushing, busy, scattered season of your life? If it is, stick with me. I have a now three year old (when did this happen?) I am a stay at home mom. I … [Read more...]

Slow Down Time


This morning my 3 year old little man climbed into bed with me. He laid his head down next to mine and brushed the hair out of my face. He said, "Mommy rest? Wake up Mommy". Then he patted my face and climbed down, off to start an adventure in another room of the house. There was a time not so long ago, I couldn't even imagine this. Couldn't … [Read more...]

Life Update

Things are going pretty slow around here, and we are all ready for winter to be over. We're just getting over, what I hope, is our last winter storm. Anybody else ready for spring? I am usually a snow lover-but even I'm over it this year! We've started potty training Baby B this week. Right now I'm mostly just getting him used to sitting on the … [Read more...]

Dear Moms,

I noticed this particular recipe had an unusually high amount of comments, so curiosity took hold. As I scrolled through the comments, there were an alarmingly high amount of negative … [Read more...]
