I don’t know about you, but once I pick up the kids from school, it seems like the rest of the day is a complete whirlwind until I tuck them into bed. Preschool pickup at 1, with not much time before 1st grade car pool, then it’s homework, activities, cleaning up and prepping for lunch then next day, and dinner – – all while attempting to get the littlest to nap so I have some free hands to get it all done! Sound familiar? I thought I’d share with you a few of my secrets for surviving those few hours between...

It’s that time of year! You know, when you go outside and you can’t feel your face. Even here in the Carolina’s, it gets down below freezing and I wonder why we don’t just move to Hawaii or some tropical beach somewhere. Unfortunately though for this mom, even when it’s 20 degrees outside, I still have to take my kids out and go to school, dance class, and the grocery store. Now that my bigger two are old enough to take their coats on and off themselves though, that part is a little easier, but having an eight...

  Welcome to my next installment of “Bachelor Banter!” Have you been watching as Ben gets closer with the ladies? I’ll admit, I had to fast forward through a good chunk of this week’s episode. Until you really get to know the girls, those one-on-one dates are seriously hard to watch! You agree? I feel like it’s been a little slow moving in the mansion with a few girl’s stealing the show (ahem Lace and Olivia much!!??) BUT.. SPOILER ALERT! I was SO HAPPY TO SEE LACE GO HOME! Are you with me!!??...

I feel like we’re in three different stages right now with our kids. My big man is officially a big kid and doesn’t really need his mom anymore now that he’s almost seven. My older daughter is in the stage where she THINKS she doesn’t need me anymore, but she really still does then the baby is staring at her two older siblings with eyes wide and wishing she could be like them. That being said (and thanks to my friends at Silikids, MAM, b.box baby, & pediped for sharing some of their signature products to...

You might be wondering where my Bachelor talk has been the past few weeks and I wish I had a better excuse other than.. it just hasn’t happened. Things have been slow moving in the blog world over here in 2016 with so many other things going on, BUT – – don’t you worry, I HAVE been watching and I’m ready to start sharing my thoughts with you! Join me each week for Bachelor Banter where we’ll talk all about what happened each week and I’ll share my thoughts.   Without getting into too much...

With a new year comes new resolutions. Following through with dropping those 10 pounds you promised yourself you would, eating less sugar and more veggies, making a vow to work out for at least 30 minutes four days a week… sound familiar? The month of January almost always revolves around health & wellness for both our bodies and our minds. Me? I decided to switch it up a little this year. While we’re trying to make a bigger effort to be more healthy, I also wanted to really make prayer more intentional in our lives. It’s...

Christmas is right around the corner and if you’re like me, you’re now running around like a chicken with your head cut off to snag all of the last minute things needed to pull off all of your holiday traditions. This year, we aren’t traveling when we have most years in the past, so I’m forgetting so may little things we’ll want to have on hand this year. From baking cookies for santa and neighbors, to having on hand what we’re eating for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and making sure we’re stocked...

Having two daughters, I really want to start special traditions to share with them while they’re young that they’ll cherish forever. My oldest daughter, who is four also wants to be like mommy all the time. She likes to wear makeup, put on high heels, and show off sparkly jewelry, so it was a no brainer to add something flashy she can wear to her Christmas list. I love the idea of getting her a charm bracelet. She already loves mine and ooh’s and ahh’s over the gorgeous charms, so I thought why not get her one...

When I came across the Star from Afar, I was so excited to check it out. The day it showed up my doorstep to share with you all, I could hardly wait to start it with my kids. Having three young kids and wanting to instill in them the story of Jesus and why we celebrate this season is so important to me. I want my kids to grow up thinking of Christmas a Jesus’ birthday and being thankful for the gifts he’s given, but I also want them to have the traditions and fun memories that I had growing up too. Since my kids range from...
