I wouldn’t consider us a “football family”, but when good games come on, especially the Superbowl, we’re pretty faithful to watch! However, let’s be honest, usually the most exciting part about game day is the food! This Southwest Chicken Pinwheel Appetizer is one of the easiest and most popular that I make and is perfect for Sunday’s with the family.
My son, Sutton, is about to turn 18 months old. He is beginning to show some interest in using his little toilet to go potty. Yay! But at this point, diapers are definitely still a thing (and probably will be for a while.) Purchasing diapers has definitely been one of the most costly parts of being a parent thus far. I currently have a lot of amazing women in my life who are preparing for babies, so I thought I would offer a few tips that have helped me!

The day after Christmas, in a moment of conviction and vulnerability, I began to share with my husband about my daily routine. I shared with him that every single day I feel like I am living my life 10 steps behind, with no hope of catching up. I feel frustrated, have more stress than I should and feel like I’m investing too much time in things that just don’t really matter. I’m ready for a change.
When my husband, Jesse, and I first put in our wood floors, we expected a little bit of dust here and there. We knew we would be cleaning the floors more often than we did when we had carpet. But goodness, we were in for a surprise! One toddler, one dog, multiple guests and a shedding rug later, we are now either sweeping at least four times a day or walking around with socks on at all times. Discovering the bObi Pet Robotic Vacuum Cleaner by bObsweep is the best thing that has ever happened to our wood floors!
A few months ago, I was enjoying some alone time at a coffee shop (the best, right?!) and I overheard two girls talking at the table next to me. One girl interrupted their study to say, “I know this isn’t my place and I’m not trying to gossip or anything, but so-and-so seems like she’s become really [insert criticism here]…”
During the holidays, we can get so caught up in the seasonal chaos and our own lives that we forget to keep other people in mind. As a momma, I want to be an example to my son in displaying generosity and thoughtfulness to family, friends, neighbors and strangers, no matter how busy life may get.
I suffered the loss of my grandpa four years ago. His birthday is on December 20th. His passing was devastating for our entire family and shifted the course of things about as much as I expected it would.
The other morning I was about to get in line at Starbucks and a man ran ahead of me. He physically shoved me to the side to get in front of me. I silently stopped in my tracks, shocked, and he turned around and said he was “in a hurry” in a pretty nasty tone, and turned back to order his drink. I thought of a thousand not-so-kind words that I wanted to share with him at that moment. I had already had a rough morning and felt discouraged and frustrated that there had to be one more thing that went wrong.
From scarlet to burgundy to currant, red wine comes in a variety of colors and thank goodness these hues flow over into Fall fashion as well. This is easily my favorite color scheme this season! It is so festive and pretty and there are so many options in stores right now.Continue reading
