Note: I have been compensated for this post. However, all opinions are 100% my own. I have enjoyed this company for a long time! Did  you happen to check out my introduction to family year books before reading this? If not, check it out!   Okay, So the VERY FIRST question I always get about my year books is where I get them printed. So I thought I would let you guys know how, why, quality, price, etc.! First off, I have tried a lot of different websites. I ultimately decided on Blurb because they are the whole she-bang {Anyone...

{Please don’t hate the blurry pic, I did that on purpose 🙂 Is anyone else out there a journal-er? I LOVE journaling, I really enjoy watching myself grow as a person, and be able to look back and see and remember things and feelings and thoughts, that I would otherwise just forget. I love remembering the little things, not EVERY little thing, but some of the little things. And, being married, I love to write, often, all the big and little things I love about my husband. So that I am always focusing on the good, and remembering...

This is part of the 31 ways to a closer family series going on right now. Be sure to check out the other posts that are a part of this series as well! Family Home Evening, of FHE, is a suggested practice by the LDS church. Family Home Evening is a great way to grow closer as a family, even if you aren’t religious. Family Home Evening is just a time set aside each week for uninterrupted family time. It could be an activity, a lesson, performing some kind of service, even going to a movie. Obviously some things help build unity more...

This month, the blog is all about families. Check out this post to see the lineup for the month & see the posts that are already up. These are just suggestions that have helped our own families grow closer, but maybe they’ll help yours, too.  When I was growing up, Sunday was cookie day. Every Sunday when we got home from church, my dad would help my siblings and I make chocolate chip cookies. Each Sunday we made hundreds (at least it seemed that way to me.) My favorite part about it was after they were all made, we would...

Hey there! I’m super excited about what’s coming up for October. Traci and I are joining up with a WHOLE bunch of bloggers over at The Nesting Place and doing a 31 day series.   We have decided to do this 31 days on how to have a closer family. We have come up with quite a few fun posts (31 to be exact) to give you all our own personal advice to help make your family stronger. I’m excited to make my OWN family stronger during this 31 days and I hope it helps you, even in some small way, to make your family a little...

Today I just wanted to share a SUPER simple {and cheap} Project that will keep your toddler busy for hours {okay, maybe not HOURS but at least one hour, for sure}. When our little family first moved to Florida, we moved into a two bedroom apartment. Which was just the right size for our family of three. But moving a one year old across the country when he is used to having tons of cousins and a yard was a hard thing to adjust to. Plus, Florida is HOT. We moved in August which is about as hot as hot can be! So, we were stuck inside a little...

My son just turned three, and is WAY into superheroes. It’s a lot of fun, and I love zooming around the room with him saving the world. But at the same time, I really want him to have real heroes to look up to in his life, you know what I mean? I am so lucky to have married a wonderful man who I know is my Son’s ultimate hero and man he looks up to and strives to be. I am so grateful to have the Bible and Book of Mormon, to teach my son about heroes that lived long ago, and have their life stories to share with us. They don’t...

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...

  I have a two year old and a one year old. On top of that, I babysit a 10 month old full time. It’s great. I love it. Keeping those kids busy can be a little tough though! I decided to make a quick list of things I can do with them when were bored one summer day. If you click the link under it, you can download it to have for your own.  Click here...

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...
