Homeschool week 2

Homeschool week 2

Kids have been out of school now for 1 week and 1 day, and let me tell you, this homeschool ship is sinking fast! Throw me a life preserver cause I’m jumping ship! Ha! We had a rough morning getting back into the groove of school. It’s drizzly and gloomy out and everyone just wants to be snuggled in a chair watching tv. I get it. I want to do that too. But, I know my kiddos are better when…

Day 1 of the Coronatine

Day 1 of the Coronatine

Well, the world has officially come to a stand still. Literally. Coronavirus hit the United States, and now Ohio, so schools are cancelled, gatherings of 100+ people are cancelled, and it’s pandemonium at grocery stores. Toilet paper seems to be most in demand, followed by cheese, graham cracker crusts, and frozen potatoes. I don’t understand the toilet paper thing because this virus is NOT affecting the GI tract at all, but since there is a run on toilet paper, the…

Subscription Boxes

Subscription Boxes

How many times have you been asked “What do you want for your birthday/Christmas/anniversary, etc.?” And how many of those times did you reply, “I don’t really need anything” or “I don’t know”? There’s been a huge rise in the popularity of “experience gifts” and “subscription” gifts the past few years because it’s true ~ most people buy what they need when they need it throughout the year and it makes gift giving so hard! One of the things Sam…

I made my “radio debut” this past weekend on St. Gabriel’s radio. It was such a cool experience to be in a real recording studio and be able to see a little of what goes into making a radio program. Thankfully, it wasn’t a live show, or I don’t think I would have had the nerve the go through with it! Ha! Knowing it was recorded and able to be edited made the whole experience a little more manageable 🙂…

Hygge Night

Hygge Night

If you’ve never heard of “Hygge” before reading this, it’s time to drop everything and pay attention because it will change your life, or at least change the way you feel about taking care of yourself. So, what exactly is hygge? First, it’s pronounced “hue-gah” and is a Danish word that essentially means “coziness of the soul.” It’s togetherness, relaxation, indulgence, comfort, and presence all rolled into one. For me, hygge is cool weather, wearing a comfy pair of leggings…

Boo Buckets

Boo Buckets

It’s almost Halloween and we are super excited in this house! Just finished gathering the remaining couple items for Eli’s and Ava’s costumes, and our house has turned from pretty princess birthday back to all things pumpkins and leaves. Ahhhh, I love fall! One of my favorite things to do around Halloween is make “Boo Buckets/Bags” and secretly deliver them to friends and family (okay, so most of the time it isn’t really a secret). When I was little, my…

Birthday Traditions

Birthday Traditions

The first year of motherhood was tougher than I ever imagined, but also more rewarding than I ever thought possible. So, when Eli’s first birthday rolled around, my mom and I took him to light a candle at church that morning ~ a thank you to God for helping me survive a year of motherhood and blessing us with Eli, and an ask to help guide me as a mother for his next year and to always be with Eli…
