Why Can’t I Stick With Anything?

This is my third time coming back to this blog – I honestly didn’t know if it would still work, even. I started it out of boredom, then my third child came and I wasn’t so bored anymore. But, I was making a little money and getting some free stuff so I kept at it. Then I got bored again…

5 Verses to Pray Over Your Kindergartener

Micah is starting kindergarten next month. I’m not old enough to be here. Well, I am. Obviously. But I really don’t feel like it. He had his preschool graduation and kindergarten orientation a couple of months ago, and we got a lot of lists. What should your kindergartener know by the first day of school? What can you do to…

Overwhelmed and Underwhelmed

Motherhood is hard. I feel like I write about this a lot, both privately and on the blog. It is the season of life I am in right now, however. I have a baby who still physically needs me, but wants to be independent. A two year old spitfire who is learning boundaries, and a five year old little boy…

The Best Cobb Salad Ever! (Easy Summer Dinner)

This recipe was adapted from Cravings by Chrissy Teigen (Buy it HERE! *affiliate link*) So I have talked before about how amazing this cookbook is. All of her recipes are FOOLPROOF (that I have tried anyways) and definitely crowdpleasers. Not to mention, she has a second cookbook coming out soon (preorder here!) and is hilarious on social media. Seriously, if…

Getting Picky Kids to Eat

My five year old son is a super picky eater. He won’t eat eggs, most meats, bananas, melted cheese(?!) or any cooked vegetables. He does get a good mix of nutrients and proteins in his diet in other ways, but not without some struggle. I have heard all of the suggestions before on how to get him to eat. We…

Choosing Yes

I recently read a book called 7 Women. It is a collection of biographies of seven women (you could have probably guessed..) who led extraordinary lives. The most famous women included were Mother Theresa, Rosa Parks, and Joan of Arc. They all led extremely different lives in extremely different time periods, but there was a common thread that connected them…

Running with Three Kids

I have recently discovered a true love for running. Three years ago, I would have thought today would never come. Ten years ago, the thought of running more than three laps around the cheer mat made me want to cry. Or actually.. it did make me cry.

Friday Favorites

Happy weekend! I wrote this on Friday, but life happened and it’s not getting published until Saturday. #momlife We’re still calling it Friday Favorites because I like alliteration and that’s the joy of running your own blog. This used to be called “Five Things Friday”, but sometimes I don’t have five things I want to write about, and sometimes I…

Overcoming Wedding Stress as a College-Aged Bride

Before I was a mom, I was a wife (although I wasn’t just a wife for very long). Before I was a wife, I was a college student planning her wedding to happen the Saturday after finals during my senior year of college. Smart. Rewind a little bit, and Dan and I got engaged the summer before my junior year of college.…
