February Favorites

Throughout the month I find myself using and/or doing some of the same things over and over. There are so many great products or routines that make my life as a wife and mom easier, make me feel good about myself or just happen to be things I love. I have decided to start sharing my top 10 favorites at the end of each month in case there are any other moms who can benefit from the things I am enjoying as well! 1. ERGOBABY CARRIER Now that Audrey is getting a little bigger, she isn't as secure in the Moby Wrap I have. I recently pulled out our Ergobaby Carrier that we bought 2 years ago when Grayson was a baby, and Audrey is loving it! I think she is getting spoiled though because she now wan

Meal Planning 101

Meal planning is a HUGE part of my weekly routine. It's the number one way we stick to our budget and avoid eating out.

Diaper Bag Essentials

As a mom of 2 kiddos under the age of three, it gets very chaotic when we are getting ready to go anywhere. I can’t tell you how many times I have gone to leave the house only to realize I forgot to put something in the diaper bag. One of the best things I started doing is repacking the diaper bag as soon as I get home from an outing. This way I know it is ready to grab and go the next time I have to rush out of the door, and I’m not scrambling around trying to get things together! Over the past 2 years, I’ve learned through lots of trial and error what is important to keep in my diaper bag and what I can do without. I may keep more than the average person, but my motto is "It's better to ha

Weekly Reset

One of the best feelings on a Sunday night is going to bed feeling ready and prepared for the new week ahead! I got the idea of a weekly reset about a year ago from Samantha at Happily a Housewife, a mommy blogger and YouTube creator that I follow. The idea is to have a set list of tasks that get done every single week to ensure your week runs more smoothly. I have been doing this reset for over a year now, and I must say that it truly makes or breaks my week. When these things don't get done (if we are out of town or have plans) I am left scrambling around, stressed out, and I'm generally a whole lot less productive throughout the week. I personally like my reset day to be on Sunday, but

Valentine's Day Treat Ideas

Valentin's Day is right around the corner, which means it's time to start thinking about what types of treats you can send to school for your kid's classmates. Typically kids bring candy with a store bought boxed valentine card, but I decided to find 3 alternatives that would be suitable for all age groups, including toddlers. I started by thinking about snacks that Grayson loves. I then to Pinterest to find cute labels to attach to them. I decided to use goldfish, fruit snacks and apple sauce pouches for the treats, since these are ones we already had in our pantry. Grayson LOVES them, so I usually buy them in bulk at Sams or Costco. I printed out the labels (love my HP instant ink) and at
