This year is such a precious year for me because after over 4 years, I have my oldest back under my roof, full time, along with my younger two kiddos. After a lot of tears and stress, after a lot of anxiety and upset stomachs from the pressures of public school, my daughter is now at home, able to learn at her pace and her level. I do not take this time for granted, and I am SO EXCITED to help her learn and see her grow into a beautiful young woman. read more

DIY Bathroom Art

It’s been a year since we moved into our forever home and I am just now getting around to putting up artwork in the kids’ bathroom. I knew I wanted something that would match the cute shower curtain and knew, just knew that I could create something all on my own that would tie the bathroom decor all together!

I had some wrapped canvases already at home, as well as some acrylic paint, so I did my best to match the pattern of the shower curtain!

I of course, used these Hefty Ultra Strong trash bags to keep my table free of any paint spills and/or spatter as I paint. You never can be too careful! read more

5 Tips for a Consistently Clean Home!

Now, before I share my tips for a consistently clean home, I must be up front and say that I don’t always do these! My house isn’t always picked up and my floors aren’t always shiny. The rug in my den sheds worse than a dog, my children leave toys EVERYWHERE, and there are approximately 300 baskets of dirty clothes in my laundry room. I just want to share these tips because not only do they work when they’re in play, but they are an encouragement to me. I of course what them to be an encouragement to you too! read more

Three Popcorn Recipes using ACT II Popcorn

#PopIntoSAMS #CollectiveBias

Popcorn– the food that brings everyone together. We eat it at home together, we go to the movies and devour it together, we hang out with our friends together and eat it… it’s everywhere! It is the perfect entertainment snack that my family and I love and when we see it and smell it– we want some! Whether it’s popped fresh at home or microwaved in a bag, it’s delicious.. and so versatile!

Act II Popcorn at Sam's #PopIntoSams #ad

Whenever we have a family movie or game night, popcorn is usually always involved because that’s what my girls usually always request. Sometimes, I like to spice it up a bit by adding fun flavors and items that really enhance the flavor of the popcorn– both savory and sweet. This past family hangout, I didn’t only make one popcorn recipe.. I made THREE! A recipe to suit my husband, who loves spicy and savory (he’s not much of a sweets person), a recipe to suit me (I am all about sweet, buttery and salty… yum!) and a recipe to suit my girls (fun and flavorful!). I was able to create all three recipes using the ACT II popcorn I purhased at Sam’s Club during their demo this past weekend. Plus I downloaded the Ibotta app to save $2! They offered their popcorn paired with crunched OREOS, and I liked it very much! Delish! read more
