Restoring My Health With Vitaselect

Restoring My Health With Vitaselect

There’s no easy way to say this, but I’m guilty on multiple accounts of self neglect. Adulthood is challenging enough. Throw in a couple of kids, one who is nursing, wifedom, a home business, life and you have a recipe for some self care slip ups. I’ve felt the effects on my worn body forContinue Reading

Hallmark Connections / 47 Cent Cards For Every Occasion

I’ve been on a simplifying kick lately, but there’s one thing that I can’t get rid of… my collection of greeting cards. My love for collecting greeting cards started when I was a little girl. My mom used to store all of the cards in a cabinet in the living room. When I’d get bored,Continue Reading

St. Patrick’s Day is next week. It’s normally a holiday we skip over although I love all things gold and rainbow themed. Walmart challenged me to come up with a craft for St. Patrick’s Day and I’m so glad that I did. It was a craft that I had a lot of fun designing (getContinue Reading

Scenes From The Office / Making It Ours On A Budget

Spring Break will be here before we know it and while we don’t exactly have plans, I know what I will NOT be doing and that’s being frustrated with work clutter. One of our problem areas for the longest has been our office. Like I mentioned before, it’s been through many phases. Through all ofContinue Reading

Read Across America Day Celebrating Dr. Seuss

Read Across America Day Celebrating Dr. Seuss

When it comes to building a child’s book collection, what are some of the first titles that come to mind? For me, classics by Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss was part of my earliest childhood memories, so of course I’ve made sure that Jayden has his very own collection. As you can tell from the photoContinue Reading

Duck Tape Table & Upcycled Frame Vision Board

Duck Tape Table & Upcycled Frame Vision Board

Our office has been through many phases. Unfortunately, very few of those phases resulted in a clean and organized space. We’ve cleared it out a handful of times only for it to return back to its former state of disaster. We had plans of painting and bringing new furniture into the space, but since weContinue Reading

Black History Month: Preserving Our Heritage

Black History Month: Preserving Our Heritage

Jayden is at the age where he is becoming increasingly aware of the differences amongst his peers. He has started noticing and inquiring about his friends with apricot and peach skin tones.

I’m currently in the process of hanging family photos on our walls. While going through a pile of photos, I found a few from our family trip to New York in 2011. The weekend after my uncle’s birthday party, my aunts made a big ol’ pot of gumbo and it was an event… because gumboContinue Reading

Winter Olympics: 3 Crafts to Celebrate the Games

Winter Olympics: 3 Crafts to Celebrate the Games

The Winter Olympics are here and I’ll admit that I am more excited about crafting for the theme than the actual event. Since Jayden is at an impressionable age, I figured we’d celebrate the upcoming games with some fun crafts. This week, we made an Olympic ring display, laurel leaf crown, and a gold medalContinue Reading

I saw an awesome IKEA hacked art wall that I’ve been planning to do for over a year now. Here, let me show you. Isn’t it so cool? In the past two years, Jayden has brought home SO many papers between his preschool program and Kindergarten. I know some parents LIVE for these types ofContinue Reading

Orange Chicken Sandwich

Orange Chicken Sandwich

What do you do when you’re stuck in the house during the rudest winter EVAR? You play in the kitchen to keep your sanity mind off of what you could be doing outside if it didn’t closely resemble Antarctica. I’ve been on an Asian cuisine kick lately, which is funny because Chinese New Year isContinue Reading
