Hello friends. I hope you night is going well. Our company left today and I thought now would be the perfect time to give you an update of a few things going on! I have a new vlog up telling you all about our Thanksgiving which didn't go exactly how I had hoped. The boys gave us a run for our money and I was a bit emotional but we ended up having a nice dinner and Friday we had a night fun right in the kitchen. You can hear all about it on Monday. I really enjoyed seeing my mom and sister. It might have been kinda bumpy at times but seeing both of them made it all worth it. :)

What's Cookin' | Our Daily Meals | Video

Sunday, November 22, 2015


Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday evening. Our house has been wild today with three boys running around. :) I thought tonight I would share with you another What's Cookin' video showing our daily meals vlog style. These meals are sometimes fast and easy because they are weeknight dinners for the most part. The boys have school and dinner needs to happen earlier and faster! If you need some menu ideas, have a look at the video. Hope you enjoy!

Saturday, November 21, 2015


Hello friends!I sure hope your night is going well. I am posting a little later than normal because it's just been a busy family night. It's been a night of cleaning up the kitchen, laundry, making dinner, a bouncy dog, loud kids and a even louder husband. I just had to wait until things calmed down to share this video that I uploaded earlier today. These are the questions that many of you sent in and it's just part 1. There were just too many questions to get them all answered in one video......hope you enjoy!

Large Shopping Haul | Video | ....Ingles, Aldi, and Walmart

Friday, November 20, 2015


Hello friends! I hope your evening is going well. It's been a long day for me and I am totally happy to be home relaxing at this point in the evening. It's been a day of menu planning, searching and printing for coupons, and then shopping...bringing it home, making a video, editing, uploading...finally getting it all put away. - Woooooh....see it's a lot! - Anyway, I bought a lot from Ingles, Aldi's and Walmart. In order to get the best deals I had to shop around. Some of this is for Thanksgiving but some is also for us leading up before Thanksgiving and after. My mom is bringing the big turkey and a bunch of other stuff which is totally nice and helpful.

Friday Letters ♥


Hello friends, I am back on this Friday with a few letters. This post is always fun to write....so on to my little letters. :) BTW....these are never in a particular order...just how they flow out of my head.

This is a looooong vlog because again due to time constraints I couldn't edit, save 2 vlogs and get them uploaded this past week. Grab a cup of hot tea or coffee and come spend an hour with us.

Saturday Rambles

Saturday, November 14, 2015


Hello friends! I have a little time so I thought I would sit down and say hi! Here are some of the thoughts jumping around in my head. Hope you enjoy.

- It's kinda cold here today. Last night we actually had to turn on the heat but we are trying to keep it as low as we can but still stay comfortable. It's hard when there are other people in the house who have their own ideas of what a comfortable temperature is. Thank you warm coffee.

Hello friends! I am back with another edition of Tuesday Talks and Truths. Hope you enjoy! 




:: It's been such a sunny beautiful fall day here. Now that the sun is starting to go down, things are cooling off and I am enjoying some hot tea while I write this post. I love fall.

Hi friends! I bet you didn't think I would be back with another video today huh!?

Sunday Night Thoughts...

Sunday, November 8, 2015


Hello friends. It's been a while huh!? It's been a long week of being sick. I thought I would get back on here and say hi.. Here are some of my foggy headed thoughts. Hope you enjoy!

* This cold has totally kicked my butt. For days on end I have laid on the couch or in the bed thinking I was about to die. It's been hard. You don't really get sick days when your a mom. I still have a family to take care of.
