Favorite Things Friday: Inexpensive Valentine’s Day Gifts For All

Valentine’s Day is coming up and let me just start by getting something off my chest. The Hubby and I were out to dinner last week and I overheard a bitter Cougar lady talking to her equally bitter Cougar pal about how they will just not succumb to the ridiculousness of Valentine’s Day. I wanted […]

Loaded Baked Potato and Buffalo Chicken Casserole

I’ve said it once and I will say it again, I am not the best cook, nor do I particularly like to cook. But, if I find an easy recipe that my family loves then I am happy to do it. This recipe is one of my husband’s all-time favorites and he often states that […]

What We Wore

The sickies infested our house  near the latter part of last week, so that time was spent in our jammies and comfies. As we should. But, we did have a few days in there of normalcy and thank goodness I grocery shop on Mondays or else we’d have eaten PB&J at every meal, not that […]

On Finding Grace

I am going to write about something I have never written about before. Something that makes me a bit uncomfortable and something that I don’t often talk about, even with friends and family. I didn’t really grow up going to church. We went on Christmas Eve and sometimes Easter, and I remember going with our […]

What We Wore

I have been doing the What I Wore posts for a little while now and have found that I have started to take notice to fellow mamas/ladies who have put together a nice outfit even more. And after talking to a very stylish mama this past weekend at a birthday party, she suggested I find […]

Favorite Things Friday- Target

Today’s Favorite Things Friday is all about the ever-pleasing… via  I LOVE Target, (who doesn’t?!) but don’t get the chance to go often. And when I do I am usually with two squirmy kids and don’t get to spend much time browsing. I had the opportunity to go CHILDLESS recently and you had better believe […]

What We Wore

Welcome to another What We Wore Wednesday! Once I became a mom it became a little more difficult for me to get “dressed” each day. The easy, most comfortable outfit is the staple yoga pant and t-shirt combo, which I still frequent often, but after a while of feeling sluggish and “blah” I decided to […]
