Hey Everyone! I wanted to post about moving from nap time to quiet time because I have to say, I was a little overwhelmed when it came time to move away from nap time. It’s just so sad! 🙂 My little boy has never been the greatest sleeper, and I have accepted that. I was super bummed however when at 22 months {and the birth of my daughter} he decided that naps were not for him anymore. I really had in my mind that most kids nap until they are in Kindergarten, right? Yeah, I was not prepared at ALL! Luckily, we transitioned. I...

This recipe is actually from my sister, and I have to say, I am a salsa lover. I think part of that is the fact that some of my best memories growing up involved a bowl of salsa and a handful of chips. My sister and I used to have movie nights with chips and dip and homemade salsa, and whenever I visit my sister, she makes me homemade Salsa. I have two older sisters and it’s just what we eat when we get together! I also remember a time getting some SUPER HOT {Like, they made it it Mexico and know what they are doing hot} salsa up...

 Awhile ago, I did a guest post for Someday Crafts. It’s been awhile since it posted this on there and I wanted to share it with you guys, too!  A while back, I did a post on how to make a super cheap canvas rug from painter’s drop cloth. It was a huge hit, so I decided to do another project kind of like it. I used the same material (a painter’s drop cloth) and some paint to create a super fun car rug for my little guy. I thought I’d share it with you all so you can make one, too! So here is what you...

I have recently decided to become a Beachbody coach. Beachbody is a company that makes exercise DVDs and products that help people to reach their weight loss and healthy lifestyle goals. I have been a Beachbody customer for quite awhile and have contemplated becoming a coach for a long time. I used Beachbody programs to lose weight after I had my second baby. I joined a challenge group and had amazing success. I was able to lose 15 pounds in the first month of my challenge group. As time went on, I kind of forgot about Beachbody,...

K, everyone can make fun of my now because I had to look up how to spell croissant on google. Haha! 🙂 It’s a hard word! 🙂 Anyway! Onto the recipe. This is one our family favorites. My husband always gets excited when we have this, and I don’t have to argue with my children to eat it. We LOVE this meal. My Mother in law makes this a lot when we visit, and it is great when you need to feed a large group of people {or a small one!}It’s quick and easy to make, and, you just pair it with a fresh vegetable and you are...

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about parenting. The responsibility we have as parents to raise our children well. We are given this huge task of molding minds and souls into the people our children will inevitably grow up to be. As parents, we are making PEOPLE. It’s such a huge task, and just about anyone can do it. Sixteen year old kids can create people. It such a common occurrence, I think, that people like to believe that it is common. But it’s not! Having a baby is a beautiful thing. It’s wonderfully awfully...

It can be hard work getting two kids to sleep in the same room. Add in the fact that my kids are both under 3 years old, the chore gets even harder. I wrote a post awhile back with tips and tricks to getting kids to sleep in the same room, and I really have had some great success. We’re in a house now where my kids could have separate rooms if we wanted them to, but decided to leave them in the same room for now. But, I have to say, there are some nights that I regret that decision. When one kid has a hard time falling asleep, the...

Happy Sunday Everyone! I have to say, Sunday’s can be pretty packed and intense, but they are still definitely my favorite day of the week. I get to get dressed up, my husband wears a suit that makes him look like James Bond,we dress up the kiddos, and all go to church, as a family. We get to learn and teach and spend time focusing on what is most important in out lives. Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and our Forever Family. I recently heard about, and didn’t really want to chose not to read an article about a lady who pretty...
