No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

There was this one time last week where I’m positive people wanted to call CPS on me… It was a day like every other. The girls requested to dress them selves, which meant rain boots, pink dresses, matching head bands, and crocs. My 4 year old did the makeup of her self and the two year old ....more

Currently Craving: Ranch Salad w/ Croutons

I feel almost embarrassed to be posting the following ‘recipe’ because, well it’s not really a recipe. v At this moment in my life there are about 5 foods that I can eat without grossing me out. It’s horrible and I’m over it, but at the same time I am kind of enjoying it ....more

Simple Top Ramen

Today I held a (rather large) clump of thin dirty blond hair in my hand. One child screaming with her hands on her head, and the other child grinning from ear to ear, doing some sort of twirl victory dance. As I bent down to scold said dancing child, her little two year old mouth looked at me and said, “Yeave me ayone!” What?! ...more

Why I Took A Break From Blogging

I’ve always called this blog my third child, and well, I’ve failed in the mom department on that one. There are probably 47 reasons that I justified myself in taking a break for a while, and although I won’t share all 47 of them, I know it’s important to share a few ....more

I’m still here!

There are times here on this blog where things might seem a little quiet. .. It’s not because I don’t love this blog, or I’m pounding down chocolate covered anything…It’s honestly and truly because I love this blog too much. I’m always going to be a wife & mom, first and foremost ....more

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls

We’ve all heard about those kind of kids… The ones whose pictures float across the internet of them covered in diaper cream while standing in a gallon of spilled milk. Or THAT kid who flush wallets, watches, and other valuables down the toilet…Or worse yet, swallows them. Or how about that kids who screams like a baby piglet when they don’t get their way in the store…seriously? ...more

Our First Family Getaway

I guess you could call us ‘moochers’, since we’ve always relied on grandparents to go on family getaways and vacations, but for the first time we ventured out just us four. I wish we would have done this sooner, but with student life and school loans, we haven’t had the opportunity to do so. Luckily, everything worked out perfectly for our little family to take this trip, and it was exactly what we needed ....more
