The Big Reveal! #GliddenTesters

Thanks so much for all of your votes on which color we should paint the boys' room! It was neck and neck between Cool Cobalt and New Grass Green for a while, but the green came out on top with more than 50% of the votes! We had so many ideas and so many directions we wanted to go with the room. My challenge was to use the color that was reader voted, so I knew we had to use majority of the … [Read more...]

Ok, it's no secret that I'm trying to lose weight. I've actually been trying for quite some time but a combination of stress, good food, and lack of will power have always gotten in my way. I'm a foodie. That's why dieting is hard for me. I love to cook and bake (mmm cupcakes) and I always have to indulge in my creations. Well, not anymore. I've recently embarked on a weight loss journey (again) … [Read more...]

Tyson Chicken Review & Visa g/c giveaway

tyson chicken nugget

I have been pretty lucky so far when it comes to getting my kids to eat their veggies and into the "clean plate club". Lucas is my eater. He eats everything, salad, broccoli, spinach, carrots, meat, everything. Adam is a little pickier, he doesn't like green stuff, so I have to trick him into eating well. One thing my kids love is chicken nuggets. It's never a fight to get them to eat all of … [Read more...]

We ended up skipping the baby food step and dove right in to baby led weaning, but Fresh Baby just came out with a kids plate and cookbook set that fit well with our baby led weaning approach. Lucas is such a great eater but Adam on the other hand isn't. We always … [Read more...]

Get Jacked Up and Win! #MurphyUSA

Ouch!

While I have gotten pretty used to running on little to no sleep the past couple of years, some days I just need a pick me up. Yesterday was one of those days. I had SO much to to yesterday, this week, this month, that being zombie mom just isn't going to cut it. I had a ton of errands to run so I packed up the kids and headed to my favorite gas station: Murphy USA. I needed to fill up and fuel … [Read more...]
