Eat Dirt Mom!

Growing up I can remember jumping in mud puddles and eating ‘unflowered’ dandelions because I was a dinosaur. I remember getting dirty. Being one with nature. And guess what? I didn’t die! It still baffles me why some moms freak out when their child gets even a speck of something dirty on them. And don’t…

Positivity Pays (literally).

Have you guys ever heard of the $39 Experiment? I don’t remember how I came across it but after reading the article I woke up in the middle of the night and felt like I had an epiphany. What kind of world do we live in now? So much hatred, complaining, and negativity. It hurts my…

Come Clean. 

In my house I have a lawn care and landscaper husband who comes home covered in dirt daily. I have a little boy who plays hard and sweats like crazy. And a little girl who, like clockwork, blows out her diapers almost every morning. With that said I have high expectations when I choose a…

Healthy Baby Home Party!

Let me just say that I’ve now hosted 2 of these parties and they are so much fun! Seventh Generation is really great about sending you all the necessary materials and you don’t have to pay for anything. I, however, do provide snacks at mine because let’s be honest, what’s a party without food?  Feed…

Memories Last A Lifetime.

I don’t spend money on toys. I spend money on experiences. Toys get broken, thrown away and forgotten. 20 years from now they won’t care about the toys they had. Don’t get me wrong my children do not go toy-less by far and their room/living room is proof of that. And sure, I remember a…

My favorite go to’s for free rewards and cash back!

God Enough.

One of my very dear friends posted this today and I decided to make her my guest writer because I couldn’t help but share this!  “I usually try to share a little something with my co-workers once a week and God’s putting this on my heart to share with you guys as well. Be blessed:…

Work From Home, Too!

Lately, several people have stopped me in the community or reached out to me on facebook. Different people with different walks of life all asking me the same question. Can you tell me what it is you really do? Could I do it too? My answer is always the same. I work from home as…

Hands on Play Party!

Baby Nor-Nor and I like to have hands on play parties! And if you follow closely you will soon realize that we love sensory play! Have you heard of sensory bottles before? If not, you’re missing out. Sensory bottles are containers that are filled with various materials as a way to encourage sensory play in…

Don’t Teach My Children.

Ok, so I know that sentence peaked the interest of some of you. I’m not trying to be the mean mom here but keep reading and it will make a little more sense… Don’t show my children how to open their snack, don’t show my children how to plant a flower, don’t show my children how…

Thoughts. 

“Let today be the day you love yourself enough to no longer just dream of a better life; let it be the day you act upon it”-Steve Maraboli Every day I struggle with accepting myself. Not comparing myself to others. Thinking I could be better. I could do better. I could have more. And I…
