For the first many years of my married life I didn’t cook meat because I couldn’t stand buying it from the grocery store. I did buy chicken but NO beef and very little pork. We ate hardly any meat until my sister told me about Zaycon Foods. My husband still looks back on that day as one […]

We’ve been biking tons this summer and now that school has started we’re biking to school together too. Biking is definitely one of our favorite family activities and we make sure we’re protected when we ride.

Science has turned out to be our favorite subject to study at home together. My kids love science and no wonder! It’s all experimental and hands on. As far as I’m aware, the new nation wide Common Core standards have taken science and history almost entirely out of early elementary school classrooms. It’s such a […]

“What’s for lunch?” “What can I eat, I’m huuungry!”  Those two questions were driving me crazy at the beginning of summer, but I’ve gotten smarter and have discovered and embraced Del Monte’s Fruit Burst Squeezers. They’re just like those little pouches for babies except for big kids! And my big kids love to squeeze and […]

With the birth of my 4th baby, I knew I needed a new diaper bag/purse solution. Regular diaper bags are too big and bulky and I DID NOT want to be carrying both a purse for me and a bag for the baby around everywhere I went. It was time to consolidate into one all-purpose, […]

Our newest little bundle is a month old already! He’s still sleeping lots during the day and not as much in the night…but whenever he sleeps, he’s always wrapped up in one of these fabulous cotton muslin swaddling blankets from Aden + Anais. They’re my favorite things ever.  Here he is at during  various naps over […]

We just brought home our newest family member 2 weeks ago – our 4th son! After just 2 1/2 short years, we’re back in baby gear mode! And I have some new favorite baby products this time around.   First on my list of must-haves for this baby was a new diaper pail – something […]
