Over the weekend we had company and we made a giant pot of chili that tasted delicious with the perfect fall weather and the Cubs win to advance them to the World Series! (I can’t believe I am excited about that, but seeing my husband, the die-hard Cubs fan, super happy, definitely makes me happy). […]
I made a big batch of Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup yesterday that was delicious! I love fall and making soups every Sunday. Only…yesterday was over 70 degrees and muggy! Thankfully I made the soup in the crockpot 🙂 I really don’t care what the weather is like, I could eat soup every day. […]
Did you know that soy sauce is made from water, soybeans, wheat and salt? WHEAT. I, in my many, many years of consuming soy sauce had NO idea. I received these sauces that were Gluten Free, and I understand what gluten is, but I never really put this together with soy sauce.
My husband is starting a new job this week and has hours that are quite a bit different than before. He’ll be working later and therefore getting home right around the time we were normally eating. I’m really nervous about having to pick up the kids and get dinner ready by the time he gets […]
I am absolutely honored to have been chosen by LÍLLÉbaby for their 2016 #LILLEloveletters Series. Throughout the year, real families have been documenting their lives, special moments and babywearing experiences and sharing them. Now it’s my turn.

I don’t know what it is about breastfeeding that makes you slouch, but it does. You’re struggling to get in the right position and trying to figure things out I suppose. And I’m always saying how much my back hurts. This happened when I was pumping for Leilani and it has happened while nursing Landon. I […]
Everything has been sort of ‘go go go’ lately and this week I’d like to spend more time with my family since we can for once. So my plan is to make meals that are easy and don’t take too long to make. Our house officially goes on the market tomorrow, so we could be […]
Comfort Food. It’s speaking to me right now. So I’m planning these meals around that feeling. 🙂 Monday – We’ll be just coming back from out of town so I needed something quick. Spaghetti is a possibility. Tuesday – Chicken & Dumplings Wednesday – Beef & Broccoli with Rice – made in the crockpot Thursday – […]
In honor of National Breastfeeding Month, I’m going to talk about nursing tanks. Because, why not? Everyone told me that I needed to get some nursing tanks after having Leilani. I tried. But everything I bought just didn’t fit right. Everything had a shelf bra in it and it was never big enough for ‘the girls’ […]
