One of the benefits of being a homeschooling family is no lunches to pack!! In fact, Harley makes lunch for her and her sister everyday for a small fee.

The girls and I may eat lunch at home, but I still have to pack a lunch for my husband. Partly because I enjoy it, and partly so he can spend time with the kids before work. I also have become pretty good at it, so I am going to let you in on some of my secrets to help other parents with lunches for themselves and/or their kids. read more

People either love surprises or hate surprises. I, for one, hate surprises unless it is a gift. I love getting a gift that is a genuine surprise. When I was pregnant, my bestest friends surprised me with baby gifts during a regular get together. I had no clue!

This copper mugs were a fantastic birthday present from my husband. We normally don’t exchange gifts due to costs and we don’t actually NEED anything. Although I gave him quite a scare when I said, “I think I like rum and ginger beer more than moscow mules.” He had already ordered them and panicked that he got me the wrong thing. read more

Garlic and lime guacamole, a delicious and easy guacamole recipe that comes together in just one hour!!

Another Tyler Florence recipe coming at ya. I adapted this guacamole recipe from Tyler Florence when I was in pursuit of a cheaper alternative to the store brand Wholly guacamole. It is one of my favorites but I was tired of paying so much for it when I knew I can make it cheaper for myself.

I could live on guacamole. Besides pizza, it really is the perfect food. Delicious, healthy, and versatile. You can eat it with chips or have it on top of toast. Or serve it with my slow roasted chicken tacos!  read more
