Nothing says Back to School to me like a good loaf of Zucchini Bread! I grew up loving this stuff and a favorite memory from when I was in public school was my mom packing 2 slices of it in my lunch box–one for me […]
Month: August 2013
Today I’m writing a post that has been in my mind and heart for years. It never quite seemed the right time to write it, so it’s always just kind of bounced around in there waiting. I feel strongly that this is the right time, […]
If you’ve read this blog much at all over the past 3 years you know that Tyler is my little “messy monster”. He is rarely ever to be found with a clean face, and after I realized this is just one of those facts of life I really quit caring so much about it. I mean–he’s a little boy and I’m much too busy to be following him around with a washcloth all day long!
With his bent for mess-loving mealtime has always been very interesting. Always strong willed he’s insisted on feeding himself since he was just learning how to eat solids. Usually I managed to come away with the upper hand, there was one time, however, where he definitely outsmarted me!
Fall Fashion 2013
I can hardly believe it but the end of the month is sneaking up super fast and with it comes back to school and that means one thing for sure–Fall is going to be here faster than I can possibly imagine! While there are many wonderful things about Summer, down here in Texas my favorite seasons are Spring and Fall. Now only do they bring much appreciated relief from the intense heat and humidity, they also allow for a little more *fun* and variety when it comes to fashion–bye bye shorts, tank tops, and flip flops; hello jackets, sweaters, long sleeves, and new shoes! Fall Fashion 2013!
Now, I have a confession to make. I’m really not much of a shoe gal. In fact it hasn’t been until the past several years that I’ve learned to appreciate the beauty of a good set of heels or a pair of Mary Jane’s. I do, however, LOVE boots. And when I say I love boots I mean….
I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Zact. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating When we were at the airport during our looong layover a nice lady beside us saw Amber playing Angry Birds. She […]
I’ve been ever so slightly obsessed with avocado lately! The only problem is that my family doesn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it (crazy people!) So when I discovered Wholly Guacamole I was in heaven, especially their minis which are only 100 calories and the […]
Last Spring I took a Bible Study that was all focused around frugal living. I really enjoyed it and learned a lot, including to keep my eye out for high value coupons on grocery items I use frequently. Between bagels, desserts, and appetizers philly cream cheese is one of those items that we always are using at my house! So when I found out about the .50 Cents Off philadelphia cream cheese Coupon I went and printed it off right away! (The one I originally used is no longer valid but go ahead and click through and get yourself some coupons to use for this recipe–I’ll wait!)
