Organizing Activities for Toddlers

Hello world!  It’s been ages since I posted anything on the blog.  Hopefully I will continue to find time in my busy schedule to make this a regular thing. So, I just had a baby.  I also have a 2-year-old. Yep, my life is crazy busy. I’d be lying if I said that taking care…

February Goals

January Recap Memorize 4 new scriptures Right now I am in the process of reading “Mere Christianity” by C.S. Lewis.  If you’ve never read anything by him, I highly suggest that you start now!  He addresses the tough questions about morality and the church.  I’m only on the third chapter, but it’s a hard book to…

My Hospital Bag

November Goals

In the hopes of getting something done besides the daily tasks that I face as a stay at home mom, I am setting monthly goals for myself.  There are so many things on my to-do list in preparation for this new baby.  I’m in my second trimester and almost halfway through this pregnancy, so the…

Meal Planning 101

It’s a huge sacrifice for me to stay home, so we have to get creative with how we can save money.  Before our daughter was born we would go grocery shopping multiple times a week.  We lived and ate by the seat of our pants, and it cost us roughly $400 a month (including eating…

Organizing the Mail

Want to know a secret?  I am horrible at organizing important documents.  Here’s proof: And I’m not the only one to blame, my husband isn’t any better!  We needed a way to organize the mail as soon as it enters our home, because I hate having piles of paper that I have to sort through…
