Tough Stains Gotcha Down?!

This post is for all my laundry lovers out there! That’s probably no one by choice, but all of you because for obvious reasons—we all wear clothes (and hopefully clean them periodically) I am definitely not a guru in terms of what are the best, safest or cheapest laundry products out there, but I am an expert in washing clothes with LOTS O STAINS. Just this week for example, I’ve seen frosting, mud, food coloring, cherry juice, chalk and the lovely macaroni and … Continue Reading »


Changes {the past few months}

YES everyone I am still here lol! I just realized I have not written a post in 3 months! Ah! (My sister even asked if I was still writing the blog with Liz and I assured her I was.) Our house has just been a little chaotic with lots of projects, traveling, and the normal stresses of life! Anyways, I promise I am still writing. To give you more of the scoop, I was in a little bit of a rut with Liz … Continue Reading »

The last few days, I’ve been thinking of a few things that could really help me embrace summer. Now that we have moved and the chaos has finally started to calm down, I’m ready to take a few deep breaths and focus on other things. The ideas I’ve been thinking of are actually super simple. … Continue Reading »


We Made It

After 8 months, our family moved to Atlanta! I posted earlier in April if you missed it, that we had listed our Augusta house for sale again. When people often asked about our timeline, I told them I was hoping and praying to move by June 1st. Well- surprise! It happened way faster than that. We moved May 12th.  Thankfully, within 5 days of listing our house, we had 2 offers! Praise hands all around!! So with a quickened timeline- we packed pretty … Continue Reading »


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 »

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 »
