Key Lime Pie Arbonne Protein Shake

Guess what’s on the menu for breakfast tomorrow morning? MY FAVORITE SHAKE! Yep, this Key Lime Pie Shake with Arbonne protein is so stinkin’ good. The lime is super refreshing and I honestly love starting the morning with such a hefty boost of greens. It’s a total win! I won’t babble and bob. Here’s the […]

10 of Our Favorite Wordless Books

Do you love wordless books? They’ve become a new favorite of ours! It all started with Eli lamenting, “I’ll never learn how to read!!!” I’ve promised him that when he wants we will begin practicing and that I have a decent track record of teaching littles to read, but still, he isn’t quite sure. I […]

Hot Springs National Park with Kids

Just four and a half hours east of Dallas is one of the most unique national parks we have visited – Hot Springs National Park. This national park is tucked in the quaint town of Hot Springs, Arkansas (Bill Clinton’s hometown!) and it is a perfect one or two day visit.​​​​​​​ Now, I will start […]

Happy Birthday – Star Wars Style

Earlier this year my Reid turned 7 … SEVEN! We celebrated with a Star Wars themed birthday party and it was just too fun and delicious not to share the details! Inspired by our Millennium Falcon waffle maker we planned a Star Wars brunch. The kids had such a blast coming up with names for […]

Awesome At Home Haircuts with The Haircut Box

Ready to hear about the discovery of the year? It’s The Haircut Box … a bundle of supplies and lessons all about how to give awesome haircuts at home. I know, I know. That’s not your thing. You’re less than professional. You don’t want to mess up your little one’s hair. But trust me, you […]

Corn Casserole

Upon becoming Texans my sister-in-law introduced us to the most wonderful side dish. Ya’ll, corn casserole is absolutely delicious! Truly my favorite thing when we get together for a meal. This dish is perfect with Mexican fare, holiday spreads, and, of course, all things barbecue. My personal favorite is a big ol’ scoop on the […]

Five Favorites

Charlie is just two weeks away from turning two! We can hardly believe it – where has the time gone? Good thing is, he still loves a snuggle. And, for those snuggles, we’re lovin’ the new, bigger size of Tula blankets … perfect for growing toddlers. They’re called “throws” and the patterns are precious! Our […]

Strong Mom | 7 Strength Training Essentials + My Favorite Workout Routine

I’ve been running through different seasons of motherhood for eight years now. Which is wild because I thought I’d do one race, say, “Awesome, check that off the ol’ goal list!” and be done. But now, many races in and many, many more miles of training I am apparently a true runner. In fact, this […]

Homeschool Winter Writing Prompts

Two or three days a week Jemma and Max write a paragraph based on a writing prompt I give them. Some weeks I’m very organized and have prompts all ready to go … and some, well, some days I grab an idea out of thin air. I’m prepping tonight though and thought, hey, I’m going […]

Best Books of 2022

For awhile I was in a really good habit of recapping my reading each year. And then I wasn’t. But 2022 was *my reading year* … I read and listened to 133 books! Some were amazing and some were just so-so. But today I want to share the best books in a few categories. Hopefully […]

Traditionally, Dominic and I have not exchanged gifts for Valentine’s Day. We always try to go out for a little celebration sometime this month, but on the tail of […]
