2016 Toyota Sienna Review

We have been owners of two Toyotas since we could drive. I had a Toyota Camry for not too long because I was convinced that I wanted a SUV. I HAD to have an SUV! So I sold my Camry to my brother-in-law and bought a used Toyota Rav4. That Rav4 is a ’99 and […]

Plan Your Birthday Party with BirthdayMasters

I have winter babies and if you are like me, you may have a hard time planning a birthday party that will include everyone that would like to come. There are family members that can’t come to our house for an indoor party because of pet allergies so in the winter we have to make […]

Weleda Calendula Diaper Rash Cream Review

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Weleda. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Having two babies in diapers means lots of diapers and lots of need for diaper rash cream. I was sent Weleda’s Calendula Diaper Rash […]

It’s time to Spring Clean!

Do you know what Sunday is, besides my birthday? It’s the first day of Spring! The birds have been chirping and tonight I noticed that my daffodils have opened up. (They hadn’t this morning when I left the house!) I LOVE this time of year! One of my favorite parts is that it’s time to […]

Celebrate Spring with Dirt Pudding

Do you know what Sunday is? Besides my birthday (and my husband’s) it’s the first day of Spring! Hooray! Time to let the kids outside to play during the day without bundling up in 20 layers. Reading our family reading out on the porch. Letting Quinn run and play in the backyard where she loves […]

The Young Messiah Movie Giveaway

Just in time for Easter, the Young Messiah comes out in theaters today! I don’t share my faith a whole lot on the blog, but this movie excites me! I would like to find the time to take my husband to go see this movie before Easter. As parents, it’s not always easy to teach […]

Blue and Gold 2016 My baby is a Boy Scout Now!

Last weekend my oldest son became a Boy Scout. I can’t believe that my little baby is now a big boy! We celebrated at his Blue and Gold Ceremony. My husband and I aren’t just parents of a scout, we are active in the Cub Scout Pack. My husband is the Committee Chair and I […]

Hot Chocolate Ice Cream

Here it is the middle of February and I am dreaming of spring and summer. I’m tired of being cold here in the midwest! I’m dreaming of days when the kids can go out and play so I can have some quiet in my house. As a homeschool mom, I don’t get silence very often. […]

Introducing Joseph Matthew

I’m a little behind on introducing you to my newest member of the family. Baby boy was due on December 25, 2015. We went ahead and scheduled the c-section for December 18 since he was to be my 5th c-section. As Christmas drew nearer I was focused on having everything ready to go before he […]

New Ways to Enjoy a Black Bean Burger

Who says you have to make a hamburger out of only the most traditional ingredients? And who says a health-conscious black bean burger has to lack in flavor, in creativity, in wow? Truth be told, the culinary possibilities for a black bean burger are just as rich and just as diverse as for a conventional […]

My Formula for Happiness

5 weeks ago my little guy decided to make his entrance 2 weeks early. (It was 1 week before my scheduled c-section.) He really surprised us, because none of our other four kids came early! The ones that were not scheduled came two weeks LATE! I’ll tell you, though, adding #5 to our family is […]

Poise at Sam’s Club

Last weekend I headed over to Sam’s Club to pick up some Poise pads. I haven’t been to Sam’s in a while, so it was really nice to see what was new. I went in with the intention to spend some kid free time with my girlfriend and pick up the Poise pads. I ended […]
