·Black bean and corn quesadillas ⋅ AMAZING! 3 things you should know about this recipe—1) Its quick—there aren’t a million steps or lots of ingredients. 2) Its vegetarian—and if you’ve read some of my posts before, we like to eat this type of meal 1-2 times a week. (My husband thought this recipe actually had meat in it when he was eating it—its filling and tasty!) 3) Its cheap. Your most expensive ingredient is probably the $1 can of black beans or $1.50 … Continue Reading »

What’s Up Thursday

The other day, Angie and I were together and like we often do, we were talking about our blog and some new post ideas. I had mentioned to her that I wanted to write a certain “how to” post, but I wasn’t sure if I had all of my ducks in a row or if I had actually mastered this certain “how to” perfectly myself to post about it. Thankfully with her wisdom, Angie reminded me that we should share/write/post about the things … Continue Reading »

Yard Crashers…in progress

With the warm weather and sunny days lately, my husband and I have been on a DIY frenzy. Specifically with our backyard (front yard is next!) I’m not gonna lie to you, with our last backyard, I seriously tried to apply to Yard Crashers! The yard was HORRIBLE when we moved in. But by the time we moved out 3 years later, my husband had turned it into our own little paradise.  So with that, I completely trust him with our current yard! … Continue Reading »

Cheesy Potato Casserole {with Greek Yogurt}

This recipe is a family favorite that my mom has been making for YEARS! It’s great for large family gatherings, cookouts, and holidays! This time, I made a little adaptation to my mom’s original recipe in order to make it a touch healthier. I’m sure you could come up with more healthy changes as well!  I love how quickly I can whip this recipe together for a get together (like last night!). Once you mix everything together in a large fry pan, you just transfer … Continue Reading »

My Go-To Pandora Stations

Everyone has their own style of music and definitely their own opinions about what is “good” or “bad” in the music world. But since we love music in our house and I am playing some sort of Pandora station 3-5 times a day—I thought I’d give a shout out to some of my favorites. Judge me all you want! Working out- So while I’m working out, I’m a fool for the Billboards Top 40s and also all of the old school music I use to … Continue Reading »

It has been almost 6 months since we started busting into the blogging world! To be honest, we’ve had so much fun!

We are far from pros, but we’ve been loving the adventure. So to celebrate, we are doing what “bloggers” do! HAVING A GIVEAWAY people! If you’ve been following us then you read … Continue Reading »

What My Mom Doesn’t Know

One thing my husband and I talk about frequently when we are trying to “fix the world’s problems” is how really, the most life-changing, meaningful or successful way to “change” this world is by— investing in people. We sometimes go round and round about how the government is flawed, what horrible things we see on the news, or what “so-and-so” should be doing that they aren’t doing. All these conversations draw us back though. Back to people. The real change is personal in someone’s life. … Continue Reading »

Day in the Life of a One Year Old!

So this post may not be that exciting to some of you, but I wanted to share some activities in my daughter’s day and her typical schedule. This is just her general schedule. On days when we have bible study or decide to do something as a family, we are flexible and move things around. (Also, sometimes when I see other people’s schedules for their kids it makes me STRESSED OUT! I don’t want that to happen with you! I’ve learned that a … Continue Reading »
