Balsamic & Herb Pork Sirloin Tip Roast with Roasted Vegetables

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pompeian. About a year and a half ago I tried a Paleo diet. It was great! It helped me not only lose weight, but it made me feel so much better. I suck, and it only lasted a few months. Even so, it did […]

Healthy Alternatives to Kids’ Favorite “Junk Food” Snacks

Healthy Alternatives to Kids’ Favorite “Junk Food” Snacks

Kids love junk food and sweets. There’s no denying it. Maybe you have one of those rare children who’d rather have veggies over sweets, but in our family they’d gladly pick those sweet treats over the better alternative. Obviously, it’s a bad habit to start or break. As much as even I love those treats too, […]

Five Reasons You Should Buy Girl Scout Cookies #Cookieboss

Did you know that I used to be a Girl Scout? Yes, like 15 years ago. I don’t quite remember how I got involved in it. I think because I had a couple of friends who were in Girl Scouts and I thought it would be fun. It really was fun too. We did fun […]

5 Snack Planning Tips for Families

5 Snack Planning Tips for Families

When it comes to meals, my kids aren’t the best at eating everything in front of them. If it were up to them, they’d probably just snack all day long. Some days do end up more like that, but I do try hard to encourage them to eat balanced meals each day. Meal planning, shopping […]

Happy New Year, Friends!

Happy New Year, Friends!

I’m still a little in shock that the holidays are over and it’s already 2014. Really, the older you get time goes by so much more quickly, it scares you. Last year was great to us, and I’m hoping this year will be even greater. It’s crazy, but baby number four will be here in […]

Peppermint White Chocolate Popcorn with doTERRA Essential Oils

Remember last month, when my oldest got pink eye? We started with eye drops from the doctor, but it only got worse. Instead, I turned to homeopathic medicine and essential oils. Essential oils are not completely new to me, but they are something I’m learning more about and wanting to add into our household on […]

Annie’s Pizza – Kid Approved?

How often does your family eat pizza? For us, it’s usually once (sometimes twice) a week. My family, kids AND husband are picky eaters. So as much as I enjoy making and trying new recipes, it gets exhausting when no one else will eat it. So I do tend to make a lot of traditional […]

After a Long Day, it’s Time to Indulge in Godiva’s New Truffle Flights™ #TruffleTakeoff

One of the hardest things about being pregnant is not being able to drink. I know some say a glass of wine is fine…but am extra good when it comes to pregnancy and stay away from it period. There are so many nights where I’d love to just sit down, after spending hours getting the […]

Saving Money with Cafe Style Drinks from Gevalia #FoamAtHome

Saving Money with Cafe Style Drinks from Gevalia #FoamAtHome

For every coffee I buy outside the house, an angel loses their wings. Okay, not really, but my husband loses his mind. Trying to save money, and spending it on things like coffee…well it just doesn’t work. Coffee is a splurge, and sometimes I go overboard when we’re busy, out, or traveling. It adds up, […]

Moving Baby To the Dinning Table – Stokke Tripp Trapp Review

One of the best things about moving into a bigger home is finally being able to sit down as a family for meals. Sadly, we just didn’t have the space before and my husband and I had to stand around a small table where our two children sat, and the baby was in a separate […]
