Walgreens Well Beginnings Diaper Review

    I don’t do a ton of reviews on my blog (they take time). But, when the opportunity to review a product I already love, or know that I will likely love comes up I go for it. Mom’s Meet emailed about an opportunity to review Walgreens Well Beginnings diapers and I applied right…

Ordinary and Bored

Ordinary I have a pretty active brain. It is always swirling, always 10 steps ahead, always looking for solutions, and craving something to conquer.  As a stay at home mommy the internet often feels like a lifeline to the outside world.

Our Suppliment and Vitamin Routine

(Images and photos are not working currently. I will try to add them again soon.) Lately, I have had a few friends ask what supplements we use at our house.  I will start out by saying that I am NOT an expert.  I am just a mama who has done quite a bit of research,…

I have my game face on much of the time I spend with my children.  Not necessarily a grumpy face (although that happens plenty), but like I am trying to accomplish a mission.  Acting as if my resolve and focus will get us safely and sanely through our day.  Maybe my gumption (do people still…

“I kinda like myself,” she said.

“I kinda like myself” she said in a soft voice as we were sitting together in church.  She was drawing in her notepad, and generally going about her business and what she said totally caught me off guard.  I was floored.  I looked at Hubs to see if he had noticed and whispered what she…
