Doing — A lot of decluttering. I mean, when am I not? Are you plagued by this ongoing project too? Tonight I sorted through our entire homeschool room bookshelf and tomorrow is Jem’s bookshelf. We love books, but the shelves are brimming. Annoyingly so. Watching — The Good Doctor. I’m all about doctor shows. This week has been full […]

A Yes Day At the Zoo

This post is sponsored by Vanguard, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. Thanks to Vanguard I was able to participate in a fun little “experiment” – I was given $160 to make a special memory. Why $160? Well, according to recent data, if you hold $10,000 in cash, you could earn […]

Hazelnut Ricotta Pancakes

Big fan of pancakes here. I have a staple recipe, but every now and again I’m out of one ingredient or another and have to be creative. Sometimes, that creativity is magic and today, that magic is called hazelnut ricotta pancakes. Lordy, lordy, these were divine! Are divine. Totally making them again. And, sharing the recipe […]

10K Like Whoa!

After my 5K in August (that I never mentioned), I decided to up the ante. Time for a 10K! I met my goal for the August 5K by seconds – done in under 30 minutes – and I needed something new to work towards. Because … running gets to you like that. I downloaded the Nike Run Club […]

WE LOVE […]

Have an Infant or Toddler Feeding Question? Ask It Here!

This post is sponsored by Happy Family Brands but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. Even after four kids, I still find myself asking questions. All. The. Time. Questions about their milestones, questions about discipline, questions about food options, questions about breastfeeding, questions about my postpartum experience, questions about learning activities, questions […]

Vaccines Demystified E-Course Sale

Hey mamas! Now that your kids are back in school, it’s time for you to explore some new things too, right? I’m working through two different e-courses (gotta show my kids that learning never ends!) and am so very excited to share more about and recommend one of them today — Vaccines Demystified. Honestly, I’ve been […]

Five Favorites

Jem and I went on a girl date with some friends to paint pottery the other week and on our way back to the car she insisted that we take a few photos of each other because “we don’t have boys to wrestle”. She was SO right. Going out with just an almost eight year old is […]

Free Printable — Laundry Room Art

Apparently I’m on a laundry kick, because I’m back with more laundry talk!  Over the long weekend I decided it was time to give the walls of my laundry room some love. And so, I typed up this “very me” piece of artwork. It says, “Sort today, wash tomorrow, fold maybe, iron never”. Which is all […]
