Patience And Naps

Do you ever just need a hug? Or some time to rest your eyes? I’m almost thirty years old and sometimes I just need a hug, or a moment to myself to close my eyes and rest!

Easter Oreo Bark

This is such an easy recipe! Plus it looks so bright and pretty for Easter weekend. I know I’m looking forward to lots of Easter celebrating with the kids all week, and we started by making this today! Disclaimer: if you have a pre-schooler nearby while making this.. they will steal several M&M’s in the […]

Balsamic Chickpea Pasta

I’ve been told to try that pasta brand “Banza” for a while, but I figured it’d taste bad like the other pasta alternatives I’ve tried! I ordered it in my grocery pick up to try and I actually really liked it. This recipe calls for lots of fresh veggies and a little chickpea pasta. I […]

Snow Filled Clothes

Our day started off a little rocky when Carter found out he had a snow day today. He LOVES school and was so bummed it was cancelled! But I knew we’d make the best of it. Both kids were up early and ready to get the day rolling! I personally haven’t been sleeping well this […]

Taco Pizza

Anything with the word “taco” in it calls my name! I actually had planned to make regular tacos for dinner, but then I saw we had a can of pizza crust in our refrigerator! It turned out SO yummy. And made for great leftovers the following day! Check out the recipe below. Ingredients: 1 lb […]

BBQ Chicken Salad

I know that it’s winter and this might sound like more of a summer recipe, but I personally love it anytime of year! I like to make it into a big bowl and just serve it from there. The fresh greens and other ingredients really bring it together for a great lunch or dinner. If […]

Thanksgiving Feels Different

Here we are. Just one day before Thanksgiving, yet it doesn’t really feel like it. Last year around this time I was making my last minute grocery list, having wine with my immediate and extended family, prepping food, and enjoying the feeling of company. I remember we planned to spend the whole day at my […]

Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodle Cookies

Why not add one more Thanksgiving baking session in this week! Carter loves to help in the kitchen. And sometimes, when things are getting crazy around here, if I offer to bake or cook something? It works every time. It’s probably the best thing to redirect to when he’s feeling big feelings. These cookies are […]

Darling Little Ruffles Boutique

If you have been following my blog for a little while now, you know that I have loved to share different shops, boutiques, or places that are small businesses! I have shared a few different small shops that I have purchased items for Carter’s wardrobe, and now I have one to share on Payton’s behalf! […]

No Time For Feelings

I always try to take the time to write in a journal or blog when I’m feeling something. I find that by having this blog as one of my outlets, I am able to really just unload (or unleash lol) all of my feelings. While I’m not always the best at expressing my feelings speaking […]
