I wanted to share something with you that we have implemented in our family to make sure that our kiddos get more one on one time. When we had our first child, we felt like we got a LOT of time with our son, and didn’t ever feel like we didn’t get one on one time with him. Then we had little sister, and we felt a little bit like we weren’t getting much one on one time with our oldest. {babies are needy, yah know!?} So we started doing dates with our son on his birthday day of every month. SO toward the middle of the...

Ohhh moving! I have a love hate relationship with it. Really, I love being able to try out a new home and find all the things I love about it {and we usually get more space each time, too!} We have been married almost five years and just made our fifth move. {I know, really? Who does that, We do!} 🙂 It’s been really fun. We have lived in three states together...

Hey all! Welcome to week 7 of the 100 mile summer challenge! Who’s still with us? How’s it going for everyone? I (Markell) ran 3 miles in 33 minutes last week! I was so proud of myself 🙂 It feels good to beat personal records. Remember that if you’re participating in the challenge, use the hashtag #100milesummer so we can all keep track of how...

A little while ago, my sister in law told me that she started “no-pooing.” I pretty much had no idea what she was talking about, but it sounded gross and probably not good for you. Whoever came up with the term “no-poo” was just asking for people to be turned off right away. Seriously. So after a few questions, I figured out what it was she...

Each month, on the first of the month, I try to write a religious/spiritual themed post. The purpose of that is to help my readers (that’s you) understand a little more about who I am and what my beliefs are. There are a few other bloggers of my religion (Mormon) who do this same thing. You can find links to their posts at the bottom of this one. If you’d like to read other religious type posts I’ve written, click here.  I wrote this post on marriage a little while ago, and I was hesitant to post it because of some...

Blogging can be really time consuming. There are link parties to join, comments to write, emails to answer, reviews to write, posts that need written, surveys that need filled out, and many more things that can demand the time of a blogger. It can be addicting and completely time consuming if it gets out of hand. A lot of people want to make it big blogging, and a...

Hey! Happy Sunday to all of you fabulous readers. As some of you may know, the first Sunday of every month, I, along with a few other bloggers, publish a post that has something to do with my faith. In the past, I have talked about the Atonement, conference, and how to have a peaceful home. I try hard to mix it up and talk about all different aspects of my beliefs,...

  My sisters and I all share baby clothes. We have tons of tubs of baby clothes that we pass around to whoever happens to have a baby at the time. There is a tub for 0-3 month boys clothes, 3-6 month boys clothes, 6-12 month boys clothes, etc. The same goes for girls (although I think there may be more than one of each size for the girls… why do girls...

One thing that really bugs me about a lot of blogs is the fact that they are perfect. They have perfect designs, perfect posts, perfect advice, and perfectly posed pictures. I realize that no one wants to air their dirty laundry for the world to see, and no one wants to read about how not to be a good parent or how not to potty train your child. At least that’s what authors think. But I got to thinking. That’s the kind of things people relate to. Because right now, after day two of potty training my child, what I want to read...

Click here to download this print   Mother’s Day is such an awesome holiday. Every day should be Mother’s Day. Seriously. Wound’t it be awesome if Mother’s got the recognition they deserved, every day? I personally LOVE being a mom. I didn’t realize when I was growing up how much I would like it. I didn’t really play...
