Celebrate Earth Day with Dirt Dessert Cups for Kids!

Happy Earth Day! It's not really a holiday, but I like to do something fun to acknowledge the day. My kids are all about desserts, so I decided to whip up an easy batch of Dirt Dessert Cups to celebrate! (I even made a gluten free alternative for Liam!)

The Busy Mom's Guide To Beauty - 15 Time-saving Products I LOVE

The Busy Mom's Guide To Beauty - 15 Time-saving Products I LOVE

I may be a busy mom to four children, but I still care about the way I look! I know that looks don't matter in the grand scheme of things, but truthfully, my appearance is the only thing that makes me feel like I'm more than just a mom. The reality, though, is that I just don't have enough time for an in-depth beauty routine, so time-saving products are a MUST!

Life Lately & Weekending

The Lucky Few


To say that life has been busy lately would be an understatement! The older my kids get, the busier life becomes. And sometimes, nearly a week goes by between blog posts. As much as I wish I could do it all, I simply can't, and my family ALWAYS comes first!

Capture the Moments in March

Capture the Moments March

Every month, I try to capture all the moments that make life so special! I know I take a LOT of pictures, but there's a good reason for it. So often I wish I could freeze time, but since that isn't possible, photos will have to serve as a reminder of all the moments I hold so dear. Someday, I'm going to be so thankful to have these moments to look back on!

10 Fun Ways To Encourage Family Bonding and Togetherness

10 Fun Ways To Encourage Family Bonding

This post is sponsored by I See Me! 

Family togetherness is very important to us! I come from a big family, but it's rare that we're all together. My husband's family is often the same way. Neither one of us are fans of that, so we do everything we can to encourage family bonding for our own little family. Our hope is that our tight-knit family will remain close, even when our kids are grown!

Easter Basket Fillers for Toddlers, Kids, Tweens & Teens

Easter Basket Fillers for Toddlers, Kids, Tweens & Teens

With Easter just days away, I, like many other parents, am scrambling to fill those Easter Baskets! We accumulate plenty of junk between four kids, so we try to make sure that almost every item in their baskets is useful or meaningful. And with a toddler/preschooler, a 6 year old, a tween and a teen, we have a lot of ideas to come up with!
