For the record, I’m *not* a fan of daylight savings. Because not only does it mess with my sleep, it also messes with my kids’ sleep. Which makes my sleep less, and we’re back to the “it messes with my sleep”. In any case, what do you do when daylight savings and an 11 month old […]
After managing to avoid a work phone (and being on call) for almost 10 years, my husband finally had to get a work-provided cell phone. We’ve got mixed feelings about it. On the plus side, my husband has lately been forgetting to turn his phone’s WiFi on, so he’s been eating up data like crazy. […]
Who says selling a minvan has to be boring? Okay, so nobody has to say it, it usually just is. But when we decided it was time to sell our minivan, I decided to have a little bit of fun with the ad. And since it was entirely too much fun to write, I can’t let that […]
Do I really need a reason to want a cookie? I say no. And an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie… well, they are deliciously amazing. They’re a family favorite. In fact, if I try to make “regular” chocolate chip cookies, my kids will inform me that I’ve forgotten the oats. And since my kids generally don’t […]
What if I told you there’s an online trap that’s so good that it’s snared countless thousands of business owners and bloggers? Well, there is. And it’s so effective that it’s a huge drain on productivity and bottom lines everywhere. What is it? It’s the SEO monkey trap. Now, because your business has to be online, […]
There’s nothing better than fresh, homemade bread… unless it’s also cinnamon swirl bread, of course!
Making a cinnamon swirl loaf isn’t as hard as it sounds, I promise. In fact, it’s not all that different from making homemade wheat bread. It just has a few extra steps.
Reality hit me hard after abdominal surgery. Suddenly, everything seemed impossible and I realized with new clarity why they call it your “core”. I know that moms joke, tongue in cheek, about how hard it is to maintain any semblance of balance between raising kids, caring for a household, and making sure everyone gets fed. […]
It doesn’t really matter what day it is… there’s just something about fresh, homemade, perfect wheat bread that makes me happy. It could be 100 or -20 degrees outside and it wouldn’t matter to me. Give me a slice of warm, perfect wheat bread with honey butter and I’m your new BFF. (For the record, […]
School is just around the corner, y’all. And with that, school shopping, school physicals and checkups, and school photos are just a blink away. With only a few weeks to go, you’re no doubt preparing by buying books, crayons, backpacks, and other supplies. And if you’re really on the ball, you’ve probably already pinned a bunch […]
I have a confession. I severely dislike shopping. Don’t get me wrong. With the right company and a list, I can enjoy it for about fifteen minutes. After that? I’m ready to call it quits no matter what the status of said list is. (Don’t worry: food is kind of an exception. Because, well, food is […]
