Meal Plan Monday – February 12-25

Despite having sick kiddos, it was a nice weekend! Saturday I had a bunch of girls come over to try a Charcoal Facial, drink mimosas and chit chat. It was such a fun morning. A big thanks to my hubby for taking the girls to his parents (Thanks Dennis and Julie!!) so that I could have some mom time! My sweet friend Heather brought me these beautiful flowers. It’s amazing how one vase of flowers can […]

Peanut Butter Granola Recipe

Yogurt + granola + fruit is one of our regular breakfast and snack options. Miss Reese would eat yogurt + granola by the gallons if we didn’t cut her off! We buy a lot of granola, so I thought I’d give making it a try. It’s nice to be the one controlling what goes into our breakfast and snacks, like sugar. You can easily make this recipe vegan, by swapping the honey for pure maple […]

Meal Plan Monday – January 29 – February 11

Can we just eat eggs for dinner every night? I love eggs. I love my chickens that lay my eggs. Maybe that’s why eggs have become one of my favorite things to eat. There’s nothing more cheerful in my opinion than my egg basket holding pretty eggs on my counter! But I live with my husband. The hater of eggs. He will eat a courtesy fried egg w/ toast every morning because I make it for […]

Making Safer Choices for Me & My Family with Beautycounter

This is nerve-wracking. Trying something new. Putting myself out there. But it’s worth it. I’m so excited to start something new and to share it with you! Following my miscarriage I had a lot of questions and really began researching hormone disruption. I was shocked to discover the personal care products I have been using for so long were filled with toxic chemicals and unsafe ingredients. I don’t think the use of these products led […]

Kid Approved Tortilla Pizza

Kids love to help. Especially in the kitchen. By supper time, my patience meter isn’t always the highest…can anyone else relate…but this quick and easy meal is kid friendly and easy for little hands to help with. If you have a picky toddler (let’s take a moment of silence for all of us Mama’s out there), this might be a great thing to try to get them excited to eat by their involvement in the […]

8 Encouraging Verses

One of the things I’m focusing on in 2017 is having less of most things: stress, anxiety, possessions, clutter, hustle, etc. I’m taking a minimalist approach and slowly de-cluttering my life to allow room for the important things like 1) my relationship with God 2) my people (hubby/girls) 3) deeper relationships (family/friends).  I’m not sure how it will all play out specifically, but I’ll try to document certain areas as time goes on. In my […]

Sausage Bean Burrito Bowls

My #1 go to meal is Sausage Bean Burritos. For many reasons: it’s quick, the girls love it, and it makes a ton. In my opinion, it tastes even better day 2 and 3. Instead of wrapping this deliciousness up in a tortilla for lunch the next day, I opt for a burrito bowl instead. We have enough left overs for four + lunches for my husband and I. Just reheat and top with a […]
