Disclaimer: I know that I call this “career” blogging. I am no where near a career level at this point nor do I intend to be. Blogging for me is a hobby, but I do want to create a successful blog, one where my mother isn’t the only reader (but thank’s for being here, mom 🙂 ) I am writing this post exactly one week after I started my blog. I...

I slipped. I messed up. I didn’t make it all the way through the month. Although, I do have a perfectly good excuse. So, here is what happened. I needed to go to the store to get a few things. I wanted to go by myself (because seriously, the grocery store is the only peace I get some days), so I helped my husband lay our kids down for a nap before going to town....

Another Monday of our March Money Challenge, which means I have a guest post for you guys all about how one family saves money. Like I’ve said before, I love learning how other people manage their money. There are so many different tips and tricks, and not everything works for everyone. This post is written by Jessie of www.thenilaughed.com. She is super funny, but...

Once again, I am so glad that I started this challenge. My husband found a “reduction of force” card in his pay check yesterday. Basically it means that he was laid off. The production on the building he is working on is at a stand still because of some parts that are back ordered, so they have no work to do, sooooo they laid some people off. Thankfully,...

Potty training seems like such a scary thing to me. For one, it means that my baby is growing up. As much as I hate changing diapers, I don’t want him to grow up too fast. I love having babies at home and I am so lucky to have two of them. However, two in diapers is not fun. He is only 21 months right now. I know some people have been able to potty train their...

When my husband and I decided to live in a two bedroom house with a family of four, it meant that our kids would have to share a room. This is a right of passage for anyone with a sibling, it seems like. At one point or another most kids have shared a room. Our kids are no different. One thing that sets them apart from many others that share a room is that they are only...

I had always heard that a bedtime routine was an important part of a kids day, but I never really believed anyone. My son went to bed really well and we never had any sort of a routine. I had heard other people saying how they have these long elaborate routines which involve bouncing on medicine balls and singing for hours on end and I didn’t want any of that. When...

Losing weight isn’t a mystery, at least it doesn’t have to be. It’s not magic. It’s science. Sure, there are some things the speed that science along, but you most likely don’t need those things. There are some simple life changes that you can make to start losing weight. Eat Better This one seems obvious, but it’s very true. You might be surprised...

Big News today. I was featured on another blog as a guest author. I’m pretty excited about this. I wrote a story about how my family has lived on less than $15,000/year (and that’s stretching it). Check it out over at Third Stop on the Right. Awesome, right? Share Share this:PrintTweetEmailMorePocketShare on Tumblr...
