April Favorites

It’s time for another edition of my monthly favorites! With selling our house and my brain basically a bowl of mush, all I can really form into sentences for now is the stuff I’m really loving and think you all would love too! I’ve been heading over to the Pioneer Woman website a lot lately for recipe ideas. At the moment, I’m in love with her peanut butter pie! I’ve made this dessert twice in the last month. (…And I’ve been known to … Continue Reading »


Time For An Update

Where did the last 4 weeks go?  I feel like I blinked and it should be March still instead of April 11th. Sorry for our lack of posts lately. Life has been great, but really full! Full of times with family and friends and also full of cleaning, clearing and preparing. To sell our house—again. If you were following along with the blog in the fall then you know that I wrote a post about our family moving. Check it out here if you … Continue Reading »


Give Me Sleep NOW!!!!

I just wanted to share a resource with you all that can be a LIFESAVER for you as it was me! Since my daughter was born we’ve tried to use the Babywise scheduling techniques and wanted her on a schedule. As a side note, I know every parent wants what is best for his or her child and the method you choose is yours and no one should judge. For us, we wanted our daughter sleeping in her own crib and through the … Continue Reading »


2 Is The New You!

Today, my littlest girl turns 2. I’m admitting now that since she has no baby book, or for that matter, printed pictures in a real photo album, I’m laying some memories for her, here. #thirdchild (Photo credit-Angel Murphy Photography) To my wild, loud, and tender 2-year-old, Today, I can officially call you a toddler. But you are my baby—the one that will forever be my baby. Below are a few special things about you, from this last year. And also a few things … Continue Reading »


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 »
