ST. PATRICK’S DAY GOODIE BAGS + PRINTABLE

St. Patrick’s Day is Friday and while you won’t find a ton of decorations around our home or corned beef in the crockpot, you can definitely count on us eating and wearing green or rainbows, dishing out pinches, and indulging in a yummy shamrock shake. This year Tilly also wanted to handout goodie bags to her school friends. […]

CREAMY ROTISSERIE CHICKEN + CORN CHOWDER RECIPE + A MEAL PLAN

OMGee it was a good weekend, friends. Super low-key and just what we needed. Nothing but a couple baseball practices, church, a revolving door of kids and sleepovers (coming and going), laundry catch-up, and some car shopping. I also managed to make a meal plan and convince Ozzie to turn his culinary class assignment into our […]

5 THINGS: FAVORITE LIP STICK SHADES FOR SPRING

You guys! It’s Friday and I’m super excited to share my current rotation of lipstick shades with ya, yet slightly embarrassed of the montage of selfies above (and below). Unfortunately I couldn’t think of a more practical way of showing different lip colors, so lets just pretend that making silly faces in front of the camera is a […]

A DAY IN THE LIFE (WINTER EDITION)

Having lots of kids at different ages and a husband who’s career is firefighting means that our schedule is always changing. However, we seem to be in a pretty predictable rhythm these days and it’s such a good feeling. Since I know one day I’ll wonder what life was like way back in 2017 and because I’m […]

MOM + MINI: HOW WE HALF UP TOP KNOT

It’s Friday! Time to let your hair down… or at least half of it, ha! Next to beanies and hats, the half knot is my most worn hairstyle these days. It tends to work well on a bad hair day or days when I’m not quite sure dry shampoo is enough (i.e. day 2 or 3 […]

LITTLE BITES: TRAIL MIX + MATCH

Trail mix is full of healthy fats and good energy and is one of my go-to snacks for grabbing on the go or adding to school lunches. The only problem with store-bought versions is that certain little someones are always sneaking into the panty to pick out their favorite parts until there isn’t much mixed about […]

ICE CREAM MAKES YOU HAPPY + 5 THINGS

These pics have zero to do with the context of this post but they do remind me that warmer, sun kissed, ice cream eating days are ahead. Not that we’re ever not eating ice cream but you get the idea. In the meantime I’m going to try and be better about living in the in-between, […]

SWEET BITES: HOMEMADE SODAS

I don’t know about you guys but February is seriously kicking my butt. Not sure if it’s the lack of sun, daylight or warmth that has me feeling so blah and it probably hits me around this time every year and I forget, but OMGeeee! Spring cannot get here too soon. And I am not […]

Guess what? It’s still the weekend! Weekends that are still going strong on a Monday? Count me in please! Can we make this a thing? Ha! I mean, there are all those national donut, puppy, pizza, etc. days now… don’t they deserve a day of observance? Totally kidding, but I could get used to Tuesday being […]
