Meal Plan Ideas – December – Family of 6

If you've been following me on Instagram or Facebook, you will have noticed that I have been sharing my weekly meal plans with my grocery haul. I thought I would take it further, share it on my blog and link to the recipes, or page number in the book I have been using. Sharing is caring am I right? If I share, can I request you share this blog post with others as well?? It would be appreciated. One last request, if you have a go-to recipe, please comment on the post and I will try and include it in...

The Holiday and Life Burnout

I'm currently sitting in my van at the Walmart parking lot while little miss has a little nap. Don't want to mess her sleep right???? Anyways, as I am sitting here listening to Christmas music and waiting to go to customer service, I thought I would share my little burnout story. I don't know about you, but when Christmas time rolls around I start to feel so grumpy and done with it! I always feel like a grinch. Last year I had this feeling like never before. I was sooooo grumpy and not to mention I was 9 months preggo,...

I Like To Sweat! No More Aluminum

(This site contains endorsements for products and services, which means when you click on a link that I recommend, I may receive a commission. Please review the disclosure page for more information.) 3 years ago I decided to ditch my antiperspirant.

How can I not be sweating?? Why was my body not shedding heat from my armpits anymore? Turns out, my sweat gland pores...

My eBook Project – Meal Planning

I have been a bit quiet on here lately. How can you blame me? Spring weather has hit, and it has been gorgeous outside. We love playing outdoors, especially after what felt like a very long winter. We needed out of the house. The boys are either on their bikes all the time, riding on our quiet street, playing with their new friends over at the neighbours, or playing with water. We love living in our new area, as it is much quieter and the kids are all playing together. It's a great feeling. I may have been quiet with...

Sleeping Still Sucks!

Remember when I wrote the blog post Sleeping Sucks??? Well, guess what? A year later, and it still sucks! Ugh, hair pulling annoying sucks. Now, let me tell you, it doesn't suck because I have a toddler and a baby, it's still with the two older boys. Now 7 and 5, if we put them to bed together at night, it's still a slumber party. Seriously, every time! It's actually really funny how much those two still find ways to try and have fun when it's bedtime. I remember when I was young and would go to a friends house...

The Forgetful Mama Brain

You got to love everything pregnancy offers to our bodies. I mean, we get the most beautiful gift, a baby, which I am grateful for, but can we take a moment and giggle at how pregnancy affects our brains and makes us do ridiculous things?? For example, I can't remember which pregnancy it was, but I went grocery shopping, came home and put groceries away. So far so good, right?? Well, it wasn't until my husband went into the pantry for something and found a little surprise. Apparently, I thought hamburger patties belonged in the pantry. It seemed logical at...
