From time to time, I like to make blogging tutorials. I know that a LOT of the people who read my blog are bloggers as well, and I like to write posts that I KNOW they will find useful. This is one of those posts. Knowing this coding is essential to blogging. Whenever you put an image in your sidebar, whether it’s an ad or your own blog’s button, you use this code. If you look down at the right side of my blog, there are quite a few ads and buttons. They all use this coding. (Some are a little more intense than others, but...

There is so much pressure to give your husband/significant other an awesome gift on Valentine’s Day. I am all for expressing love, but really, is it necessary to spend tons of money on a gift to express that love? Does buying THINGS really express love anyway? I feel like there are better ways to express love than buying a gift. Not that buying gifts are bad if they are thoughtful gifts given in love, but I really think that Valentine’s Day gift giving is just a little over rated. Also it’s late at night when I’m...

I know you THINK this post is late, because it’s not even the first of the year anymore, but the truth is, January 17 was the blog’s ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY! Isn’t that exciting? It has been such an adventure to see it grow and to come up with fabulous content (and some not so fabulous content). I’ve loved getting to work with my awesome sister in law, Traci, and some amazing sponsors through out the past year. I thought it’d be fun to share my top five posts with you, as well as some stats from the past year.  The...

I have to first apologize. My food photography is AWFUL. I have a goal to see significant improvement in it, and my family photography. Basically, my kids were screaming for food, and I just threw it on the plate and took a picture. Shame. I know. I will do better. Okay! Now that THAT is out of the way, Just, trust me that this recipe rocks. It’s basically a glorified grilled cheese, but man, it is good! Sometimes, I make really yummy grilled sandwiches for my husband and I, and then my kids just have cheese. It works out wonderfully....

  Note: I’ve been told that Pinterest gets rid of your affiliate links. I’m not sure if that is true or not. Be sure to add a coupon code to the image you are uploading if you have it so that you will get credit for any sales that are a result of your pinterest pictures.  Pinterest can be an AWESOME way to get traffic to a website. Over 30% of my traffic comes from Pinterest. Everyone gets how to use pinterest, right? Pin a picture, it links back to the website it was pinned from. But what if you want it to link to...

Every other week, I’m going to try and do a round up of posts I liked from the last two lovely ladies link ups. I will try and pick a theme each time I do it and feature a few of my favorites. This gives you even MORE exposure from the party so be sure and link up each week! This week, I decided to do a round up of all the great goal setting, organization, & New Years resolution posts that have been linked up the last two weeks. I love how the New Year brings a determined resolution for everyone!    Money Saving Challenge...

I had a friend email me about getting a new camera and if I had any ideas on how to get better with her camera and learn some things without spending a lot! The internet is such a wealth of knowledge, and there ARE actually a few places I have learned some photography tips from, and I am excited to share them with you! If you DID happen to get a new camera for Christmas {or recently!} I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU! *hehe* {Note: I will include links in this post. They are NOT however affiliate related whatsoever. Just places I have used and...

  These brownies are awesome. Seriously. I would know, I made them. I love brownies from scratch SO much better than the box. Usually I use cocoa powder but this time I decided to try using actual chocolate chips and the results were awesome. So, like all the other recipes I think are awesome, I decided to share the recipe with you!  It’s pretty easy. You’re going to melt the chocolate and butter until it’s completely smooth. I did this in a sauce pan on medium heat. I stirred constantly because I am SO good...

Okay friends, everyone knows that January is all about people starting goals to lose weight, right? I have done it a GAZILLION Times, not necessarily just during the new year, but something that has been a little more effective for me, is deciding to change some of my bad habits, into more healthy ones. So, instead of failing for the 90th time on a new diet, I make changes in my diet to be in better shape, and feel better overall! I am not saying that losing weight/dieting is always bad. It just always seems to back fire on me when I...
