Rustic Pizza

Today I’m talking about a super easy and delicious pizza recipe! I can’t take all the credit for it though. Living in Texas, there was a flatbread pizza I used to LOVE from a local restaurant. I tried recreating it, since I knew everything that came on it—and my recipe turned out so good! When you make the pizza, you can use whatever crust you like, such as the prepared flat outs in the grocery store or even pita bread! I use pizza dough … Continue Reading »


Favorites in February

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post about my favorite things and today’s favorites are definitely random! From working out and self-tanning, to wine and puzzles…it’s all in there! Although very random, it’s what I’ve been loving lately and wanting to share with you all! •Self tanner drops• Tired of looking ghostly and also prepping for a vacation in a few weeks, I stumbled upon someone on social media talking about self tanner drops. I have used different types of self … Continue Reading »


What’s Been Cookin’ Part 2!

So last week Liz mentioned a new strategy she’s been trying to make meal planning easier at her house called PrepDish! Check out that post here if you haven’t already!  I wanted to try to do better with my meal planning as well because food truly is the way to my husband’s heart, haha! But with my “all-day” morning sickness I had been dealing with, I seriously did not want to look at food, think about food or prep food! Thankfully, I received a coupon … Continue Reading »


Locally Grown

Well if you heard me vent the other week about being a mom, a lot of my physical exhaustion right now can be attributed to a positive thing…We’re expecting baby #2 mid July!  I’ve wanted to share the news with you all for awhile, since I talked about our failed embryo transfer back in October in a post here. (If you don’t know our story–we had our daughter through IVF and stored the other successful embryos back in Texas where they were all … Continue Reading »


What’s Been Cookin’

To mix things up, over the last few weeks Angie and I have both been trying different methods of meal planning. Angie has been using Hello Fresh (which she’ll talk about) and thanks to a college friend and also my love for Jamie Ivey’s podcasts, I heard about a subscription prep-ahead meal plan called Prepdish. We both went two different meal planning routes but have thoughts so far with our adventures…. Today, its Prepdish. And I’m a fan! This meal planning subscription gives … Continue Reading »


Valentine’s Day Traditions

In honor of Valentine’s day being one week away, I thought I’d go back to last year’s post about what we do as a family to celebrate “love day.” Just to update–our 2017 traditions are underway and this year has been especially fun to read through the hearts that I post on my girls’ doors each morning! My oldest daughter is well aware of this  “heart” routine and anticipates her little piece of adoration each day. While my almost 2-year-old, giggles and points to … Continue Reading »


For the friend with a broken heart

One huge part of my story and walk in faith over the last 3 years has included huge heartache. If you are like me, its really easy to assume that life should look the way you’ve planned. You have dreams, and do all the “right things” to live a happy, fulfilled life. As one who grew up following the rules, carrying little baggage and having a strong family—I really lived in a sweet bubble. I went to college, found friends, a ministry, and … Continue Reading »
