My husband and I not only enjoy taking our daughter to restaurants, but we feel it’s essential. Early on, before I even became pregnant, we decided that any child of ours would be expected to fit into our lives, do the things we already loved doing. We would not stop going to restaurants or visiting […]
Fourth of July is Saturday. How crazy is that?! Christmas is less than six months away, and we’ll be ringing in 2016 before you know it. Time truly flies! I love the Fourth of July. Growing up in the Midwest, my entire extended family would get together at my aunt and uncle’s house in the […]
Sometimes, when you’re a busy mom and are already hitting up the grocery store multiple times per week (with 4 kids in tow), it’s nice to get great, organic, local produce delivered right to your door.

I came short of my goal again this year. It was in March, right before the weather turned warm, that I decided to join Weight Watchers online and lose 25 pounds by the summer. Realistic? Probably not. But I didn’t care, this time I was going to do it. College weight, here I COME! Yeah, […]

Are we too sensitive? Or not sensitive enough? You’d think that these questions would never occur in the same space – but it’s something that is on my mind often. It seems someone is offended by every type of lifestyle, comment, and interaction. And there’s a reason that “you can’t please everyone” is a thing. […]
Summer is here and that means the season for road trips! (insert slow applause here) Everyone loves road trips, but sometimes packing for road trips with toddlers can get a little overwhelming and hectic. This past Mother’s Day weekend, the family and I traveled to Stanford University for the 44th Annual Stanford Powwow and Art […]
