Baby Q 3 Months

Q Three Months

Can not believe it’s been 3 months since I had my baby girl. It really doesn’t feel like it’s been that long already. I can’t say enough how blessed I am with her. She sleeps through the night almost every night of the week. She naps well through the day so I can get work […]

Well, I did it! I finished the challenge. I don’t think I got rid of 40 bags of garbage altogether, but I got rid of a lot. I have so much more still to go. Last week I told you I wanted to hit 4 spots in my house: the boys’ room, girls’ room, book […]

This post was sponsored by The Stork and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. If you’re a normal visitor to my blog, you’re probably wondering why I’m talking about infertility when I have four kids. We’ve always wanted a large family and decided we wanted them close together. When Buddy was 3 months old […]

Yale Real Living Key Free Deadbolt

Yale Real Living Touchscreen Deadbolt

I was recently asked if I’d like to try out a Yale Real Living Key Free Deadbolt for my door. I thought “wow! how high tech!” I said yes, because I hate having keys given out to everyone all over the place for when they pet sit for us (or a roommate that never returned […]

Week 5 #40BagsIn40Days Challenge


So… I had great intentions for last week. Unfortunately my kids were on spring break. My biggest goal last week was to keep the kids happy and busy so my house wouldn’t become a complete disaster and they would have a great break. I accomplished keeping the kids busy and the house didn’t get too […]

You may remember I gave out some Trash Pack toys at Halloween instead of giving out candy. My kids really enjoyed playing with these little squishy toys. They still play with the ones we got at Halloween. I was asked to review some new Trashies and to also give away an Easter basket of Trash […]

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf {Gluten Free}

Gluten Free Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf #UdisGlutenFree

You may remember that we tried out some Udi’s Gluten Free products two weeks ago. The breads they sent us to try just were not our style but I wanted to do something with them. I decided to use the Udi’s Omega Flax & Fiber Gluten Free bread to make a meatloaf. Then inspiration hit […]

Week 4 #40BagsIn40Days Challenge


Last week I didn’t get much accomplished. Knowing I had spring break coming up with the kids this week, I wanted to have all of my work scheduled if possible. So in order to meet deadlines, I was writing, A LOT, last week to make it happen. We also decided to take a last minute […]

Books I Read Last Month {March}

Books Read March 2014

One of the things I decided I was going to do this year was track my books read because I was curious how much I read in a month and year. I know I read a lot and I know there are people that would put me to shame. My sister would read extremely fast! […]

Custom Family Necklace from Bama + Ry

Bama + Ry Family Tree Necklace

I have been dying for a family necklace for a very long time. I’ve hinted and flat out asked my husband for one for a few years. I guess it’s a good thing he didn’t get the memo since we decided to add a fourth to our family. I was contacted by Bama + Ry […]
