The best frozen lasagna I’ve ever eaten. (review and coupon!)

March 19, 2014

Growing up in a youth group in a Southern Baptist church, we had a lot of frozen lasagnas. A LOT. It’s an easy dish that only requires oven time, and throwing together a simple salad and some bread to put beside it makes a filling dish for a lot of hungry teenagers. When my husband [...]

When all you need is a break.

February 21, 2014

Can we do some real talk this morning? Okay, good. Let’s begin by this unfortunate truth: women tend to be really hard on each other. We are. I don’t know if it’s because we are hard on ourselves, or if guilt is a motivating factor, or our struggles with jealousy. I think it can sometimes [...]

To you, new mama.

February 14, 2014

For the new mom: Welcome to the club! I see you.  I really do.  You are my friends.  I have rejoiced with you.  Shed tears over your absolutely perfect bundles of joy, and I love watching you marvel.  Every time you do, it reminds me of my own babies and how much I love those [...]

Last month I received the Braun Forehead Thermometer from Influenster for review. It came at just the right time as just about everyone in my family was sick! In case you are thinking about buying one – let me share my thoughts on this product. If you have young children and you are constantly having [...]

How’s this for motivation? Be ordinary.

December 20, 2013

  Me. Second-day hair, garage sale shirt with a paint stain on it, putting up ornaments. Totally boring. A few days ago I read a post written by my friend Megan about how she gained 1,000 blog followers in 6 months. I’ll be honest, she does intentional blogging far better than I do. I can [...]

Living my dream.

December 5, 2013

Yesterday I went to the supermarket. Yesterday I loaded up my children and walked into a store where I bought groceries. Yesterday I bought groceries to take to my home to eat. I bought more than what was on my list and I took it home. And I realized I was living my dream. When [...]

The first 24 hours. (In pictures!)

July 15, 2013

Here is a documentation of Squishy’s first few hours of life. I think it’s mainly his first 24 hours.  Also, I’ll probably refer to him as Squishy or Little Man on here from here on out. “Squishy” kind of stuck as a nickname in the hospital, from his big squishy cheeks and cuteness.  Also – [...]

Defining myself.

January 8, 2013

This is seriously the real me. Isn’t my husband lucky? I’ve been blogging since before I had a Xanga… and that will be 10 years ago this year.  As you all know, I’m a huge name now with a million followers. I couldn’t even write that with a straight face. heh heh. I’ve always written [...]

I am worthy of my job.

January 3, 2013

Since I was a little girl, I had a plan for my future. It looked like this: graduate high school, go to college, have a career, get married, and become a stay at home mom when the time came. It happened exactly as I had planned. I graduated in the top 10 percent of my [...]

Vacation TIME!!!

October 23, 2012

Today, I leave to begin my journey towards vacation.  VACATION!! Relaxing. Campfires. Leaves. Crunching, swirling leaves. Early morning silence. (Can you tell I’m so ready?) I plan to be pretty unplugged during the trip — and even if I get some time, I’m sure I’ll be using it on constructive things, like shopping. When I [...]
