{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 post was written for inclusion in the monthly Homeschool Blogging Carnival hosted by Lisa at The Squishable Baby and Keisha at Unschooling Momma. This month our participants are talking about their favorite homeschool project or experience. There are a few affiliate links scattered throughout this article.      I decided to take a break this week from the home maintenance binder (don’t worry, I’ll post another section on it next week!) to join The Squishable Baby’s Homeschool Blog Carnival. The theme...

One thing I realized quickly after I started blogging was that there are a lot of things that I don’t know. I started seeing other blogs that had social icons that seemed to be one picture, but with links to lots of  different places. At first, I thought they were just uploading lots of pictures and setting them next to each other, and I tried doing that,...

 If you’d like to download this in one helpful download instead of 6 different downloads, you can now purchase it from our etsy shop for just $10! A little while ago, after I had my first child, I realized I had a problem. I had important papers in random places and couldn’t ever find them when I need them. I missed some appointments because I didn’t write them down anywhere. I also would be writing and rewriting the same memos because I would lose the ones I had already written. I needed to get organized. I decided...

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...

This is my 101th post! Woohoo! I figured a good post for my number 101 would be one to help other bloggers to make their blog a little bit better. I am pretty sure that doing this one simple thing has helped my blog more than any other one thing I could do. In life, you hear all the time the phrase “first impressions are everything”. When it comes blogging,...

  I came down with a nasty cough this weekend. And I was excited. Why? Because last time I was visiting my parents, I found an old ward cookbook. The cookbook was gold. It had amazing recipes in it. And, in the back, there was a section of miscellaneous “recipes” that weren’t actually food recipes. They were things like homemade cleaner,...

    Hey! In effort to help you guys save money, I have complied a few guest posts. I’ve been doing one a week, on Mondays. Since this is the last Monday in March, this will be the last guest post on finances for a little while. I am still always interested in guest posts, so if you have something you think other people would like to share, send it my way!    This post is by Chantal from blog.simplybabyfurniture.com. She has some awesome ideas on how to prepare for a baby without using all of your savings.      Here...

In high school, I was really good friends with a girl named Felica (pronounced fa-lee-sha). She even lived with me for awhile. Super good friends. We had lots of fun times. We were on the yearbook staff together, developed pictures all the time, played volleyball together, even “started” a photography business that we named FAME Photography (FAME stood for Felica, Ashley, Markell Enterprises… I think.. I’m not sure about the E). Ashley was another girl we were good friends with. We had lots of good times. Anyway,...
