Forgiving as a Little Child

When I would read scriptures that referred to becoming like a little child, it understood what they were saying, but they took on a whole new meaning as a parent.

Before becoming a mom, I had plans of being the mom who didn’t ever raise her voice and always had a level head when her children were acting out. I think those are probably the ideals that most of us get when we dream of what our future with children will be like.

Unfortunately, those ideals aren’t always a reality. Once I became a mom to a little girl who had opinions of her own, I realized that I am only human and can’t always be the ideal mom that I hoped of being. I make a lot of mistakes as a mom. [Read more…]

Best Tunic Ever for Postpartum!

Last time I had a baby, I didn’t breastfeed for very long. She was a NICU baby and never did figure out nursing, so I pumped and fed her for about 3 weeks. This time, I am enduring longer and it has been a totally different journey. One difficulty that I didn’t expect at all was finding tops that would work with my ever changing postpartum body and is also breastfeeding friendly. That is why I am so grateful for this Cents of Style tunic!

There is just nothing like having a nice, relaxing evening after a long day. This doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it makes the next few days feel completely different because I am refreshed and energized.

They can get a little expensive, but thankfully there are tons of great homemade options that are totally affordable and easy to make. One of my favorites is a coconut avocado face mask.

Bedroom Decor Refresh with Annie Selke

We have lived in this house for about a year and a half now. That isn’t incredibly long, but most of our decor has followed us from house to house. A lot of the decor in my house is getting a little boring for me and I need to give each room a little decor refresh. The first room that I decided to do that with was my bedroom. My room is typically the last room that gets decorated, but I wanted to give it a little more of a tranquil feel, while still keeping it fresh and fun! The Annie Selke Spring Catalog totally inspired me when I was planning out the decor for my bedroom.

I was given the Boon CARE Health & Grooming Kit as part of a sponsored post. I instantly fell in love with this product! All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It has been 5 years since I have had a newborn, so these past six weeks have been both rewarding and challenging as I remember all of the things newborns need and do! I have been blown away by the incredible products that I have discovered since the last time I had a baby. I got rid of a lot of old things and purchased new products that would be better this time. One thing I really wanted was a kit that would give me the different hygiene and care tools I would need for a baby. That is why I instantly fell in love with Boon CARE!

Whole30 Breakfast Sausage Skillet Hash

We are on day 16 of Whole30 and I must say, Whole30 has been a much more positive experience this time around than it was for me last year! There are a lot of reasons for this, but one of them is that I am much more comfortable with Whole30 compliant foods and feel comfortable enough to even adapt other recipes or create recipes of my own! This Whole30 Breakfast Sausage Skillet Hash might be my favorite creation to date. It is delicious! For those of you who aren’t following Whole30 standards, it is still really good!
