One of my favorite things about Spring is the flowers.

Especially when you have enough to cut and put in a mason jar on the dining room table. They make a house a happier place to be. Here are some pictures of our first table bouquet of the year. Can’t believe how early our flowers are blooming this year! We are so blessed that the … Continue reading

180-calorie cake

Care for a slice of 180 calorie chocolate cake?

Considering a normal bake-from-a-box cake is 280 calories, I don’t mind if I do! Three ingredients to make this cake, you say? This just keeps getting better and better! Would you believe that you can take one box mix Dark Fudge Cake Mix, one cup of Fage Greek Yogurt, and one cup of water and make … Continue reading


A Spring-ish Themed Dinner

We had our first Tornado-Warning-Worthy Storm earlier this week, and you know what that means? It’s almost time for spring! Not that we really ever left autumn behind this winter.

This year for Valentine’s Day

And also, for everyone that just has something ‘against … Continue reading

Ade, you can’t potty with your pants on.

Do you have any idea how many times I have heard/said this statement recently? More than a bajillion. Ever since introducing Ade to her new potty chair, that is about all that she wants to do. Especially when we want to use the bathroom. So true. And often she just sits down on her potty … Continue reading

WFMW: Out with the Old, in with the Homemade

Recently I have been looking for ways to replace my expensive beauty products with ones that I can make at home and save a lot of money. The added bonus of my search is that the recipes I have found (mostly through Pinterest, where else right?) are all natural alternatives. Good for the skin, bank account, … Continue reading

Do any of you remember my post on mini lasagnas? Here is a refresher Yummy right?? Oh yes! Well, I seem to have an affinity for making meals in a cupcake pan because this past Sunday (along with a Crock Pot Breakfast casserole that I will not be sharing because it was a miserable failure) … Continue reading
