School Year Routine

School Year Routine

My school year routine is inspired by the new new Oui by Yoplait Yogurts. This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Yoplait. It’s that time of year again when us momma’s are either excited or anxious about our kids going back to school. I’m one of the excited momma’s. My kids are all teens and growing into little adults. As a mom who’s put in years to help them get to this point, I’m excited for them. The transition back to school means I’ll have more quiet time to work from home and more time to care for me. I’m very intentional about  having a healthy balance between caring for my family and myself. School Year Routine So let me share a few things [Click here to continue reading]

Make Laundry Easy with a Front Load Washer

I was considering hiring someone to come in an help with homemaking tasks, but instead invested in high-end appliances. Higher end appliances often give you more for your buck because they do more and lessen your workload. I tried endlessly early in my marriage to get my husband to hire a helper.

I’d ask my husband to consider letting someone come in and at the very [Click here to continue reading]

All opinions are mine alone. #TRISCUITToppers #CollectiveBias My snacking habits have gotten a bit out of hand lately. There were a bunch of concessions snacks left over from our fundraiser that I went a little crazy eating. It’s been easy grabbing something pre-made and snacking on it in the afternoons while I worked, but after a few weeks I noticed my waistline was increasing. So when I sat down to do my meal plan for the week, I penciled in a new snack recipe that only required a handful of ingredients and allowed me to experiment with some new flavor combinations. This (Orcadomintscuit) Orange, Avocado & Mint Cracker with a Mint Aioli recipe is [Click here to continue reading]

All opinions are mine alone. #CleanMyWay #TeamDishCloth #CollectiveBias I don’t know about you ladies, but most of my dinner meals typical start with me tidying up the kitchen. The sink and counters are the central space for getting meals cooked and I like them to be clear before I start cooking. If dinner is not pre-cooked during our meal prep on Sunday, I usually start cooking around noon. By this time, the sink has a few dishes in it from breakfast. I load the dishwasher safe stuff and hand wash the others.  Once the dishes are washed I quickly wipe the counters and get started on dinner. Getting my dishes and counters [Click here to continue reading]

The following content is intended for readers who are 21 or older. #CervezaCelebration #CollectiveBias So I was thinking Cinco De Mayo is coming up and when my kids were young, my husband and I couldn’t get out of the house much to celebrate with friends. Part of being a parent sometimes means giving up your social life with friends and sneaking in date nights in the car after the kids are asleep. That was pretty much our mode of socializing. We’d cook up something delicious to enjoy while watching a movie and then head to the car for a frugal date night under the stars. These were some [Click here to continue reading]
