Create a Paper Easter Basket to give to teachers, friends, co-workers, and even your own kids! Fill them up and have fun blessing someone with an awesome treat! The Paper Easter Basket is incredibly inexpensive to make considering the impact it gives. I have even used these Paper Easter Baskets as Spring Birthday gifts by simply adding a gift card. How fun is that? How [...]

A super fun thing just happened! The doorbell rang but no one was there. Instead, there was a paper egg stuck to our front door that said you’ve been egged. Oh my! Sounds bad at first, right? I can just imagine the yolk drooling down the garage door. Bring back any high school memories? No [...]

The cuteness factor of little ones running around picking up plastic eggs has been left behind and our teenagers are relegated to acting all adult like on Easter. Easter for teenagers has shifted from egg hunts (which they are no longer welcome to attend due to their age) to parents providing the fun! Teenagers deserve [...]

Every day you are there. Right there in that spot as close to the door as possible. You leave two car lengths in front of you just so your precious high schooler won’t have to walk any further than necessary. Your friend actually parks her car every day and stands outside your car chatting away [...]

I thought I was doing the right thing. For well over 15 years our family has had distilled water delivered to our door from a local water bottling company.

There’s nothing quite like growing your own food and I’m anxious to get going again this year! After planting a [...]

A few years ago I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s. Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune disorder where the antibodies in your body attack the cells of the thyroid. Fun stuff, right? I have learned a lot about Hashimoto’s the last two years and have quite the list of supplements I take. Supplements that have been prescribed over [...]

As my 15-year-old jumped out of the car to start her day at school she asked, “can you get the laundry done today?” to which I replied, “did you sort your laundry?”  “No, but can you at least do the lights?” I fumed on the ride back home. Hazel knows perfectly well if she sorts her [...]

Dear Parents of My Teenagers’ Friends, We used to be the cool parents. The parents that had every snack and drink imaginable stocked. We would laugh when teenagers left our home and there wasn’t a morsel of sugar or a potato chip left in the place. After one particular sleepover, I woke up the next morning to find that [...]
