I LOVE Target!

I LOVE Target!

I went to Target today, mostly because I wanted to get out of the house, but also to pick up some things for vacation. I always look in the dollar spot right when you walk in the door, because I’ve found some really great, really cheap things there in the past. I’m going to be

Orange Rhino Challenge!

I posted awhile back about yelling. I’m far from perfect, and sometimes when I’m really stressed I yell. At the kids, at my husband, it happens, and I don’t want it to. I feel guilty every time it happens, and I just want to cry. I came across a blog about a month ago called the

Real Food Recipe 2- Whole Chicken and Homemade Chicken Stock

Until about six months ago, I always bought my chicken stock from the store. I knew it was high in sodium, but making my own seemed like such a daunting task.

Moving Resources Part 3- The Worst Part of Moving to Another State

The DMV, or MVC, or BMV. Whatever the state calls it, it is a total nightmare. And there is no way to avoid going there if you want to continue to drive. Living in Ohio, Florida, Wisconsin, Texas, and New Jersey in the past six years, I’ve had my fair share of fun encounters with

Moms Across America March!

Happy Independence Day everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful day celebrating the USA! My oldest son, Luke, and I had the opportunity to be in one of our local parades this morning with a group called Moms Across America March to Label GMOs. It’s something that I have been passionate about for
