    The Best Unique Christmas Gifts For Your Kids

I have three kids so when I get them gifts, they’ll play with them for a few months then they are shunned aside forever.  This totally seems like a waste to me but then again, what am I supposed to do? Never buy them Christmas gifts? No, I can’t do that because I would feel awful. Somethings I realized is that Christmas gifts don’t need to cost a…

So, I never thought of myself as the crafty type. I have actually been feeling down on myself because I was trying to think of what talents I have. I can’t use a sewing machine even though my mother in law has tried to show me numerous times. So what! I can’t sew. Whoopty doo! Cooking food is my forte! I come up with recipes on my own without measuring things out and they come out awesome! I love to cook…

    Add Some Plants In Your Home

    House Plants This is a paid product review. All opinions are my own and I do not recommend a product that I don’t believe in.  Growing up, I always thought people who had houseplants in their homes were kind of grandma-ish. My mom always had them and she was one to always talk to them when she would water the pots. Now that I’m in my 30’s, I have been loving house plants. They add so much character and color to your home. My problem is that I am busy with 3 kids so I usually forget to water and the plants end up dying, which is sad and a…

    Survivng A Long Road Trip With Kids

     Surviving A Long Road Trip With Kids   We just got back from our road trip with the kids to Missouri.  Surviving this road trip was difficult but we did it! Luckily, we had a stop overnight in Colorado at a friends house to get some rest. The next morning, we were back at it again. Road trips are really fun and we do them a lot during the summer but it definitely is not easy. Entertainment I learned that DVD players are super important as well as a plethora of different DVD’s to watch for long road trips with kids. When we left Salt Lake, we only had like…

    Road Trippin

    ROAD TRIPPIN Every year, we decide on a trip we want to take with the kids and do it. This year, we decided to go on a road trip to Missouri. We have family that lives there so, why not? The area in Missouri that we travel to is super rural, like Wizard Of Oz rural. They have tornado season and all! Luckily, the time of year we’re going will be ok. Fingers crossed! Missouri during this time of year is extremely green and humid. The humidity, I can live without! The greenery is super beautiful and lush! We really do enjoy going there though. The slow-paced, quiet life is…

For more information, check out legal forms in the footer.   Every year, my husband and I make it a goal to plant vegetables in our raised beds that he made for us. I have always loved to grow my own vegetables but I haven’t always been successful at it. For the life of me, I could never get my bell peppers to grow! About a year ago, I was in an Epson salt bath just relaxing. I started reading the back of the bag. Did you know that you can use the salts to help grow awesome plants? Last year was…

I only recommend products I have tried and love! While I was prepping for my Italy trip, there were some things we needed to think about. I knew we were going to be renting a car for some cities there but all of the cars there are generally small, kind of like the smart cars here. Trunk space would be an issue for storing luggage and we were going with another couple so imagine a tiny trunk full of 2…
