You’ve decided to take the plunge into the gardening world and grow your own fruits and vegetables! But what should you grow? You visit a garden center and contemplate picking up starts that look healthy and that everyone else seems to be picking up. You take pause and decide to give it a little more [...]

The best part of baking cookies is sneaking a little raw cookie dough, right? You know you shouldn’t because, well, raw eggs! You do anyway though because it’s just so delightful! Fear the raw egg no more and make cookie dough that was never meant for baking! Now that’s my kind of cookie dough! I [...]

So you’re on a budget and you’re sticking to it! That doesn’t mean you have to sit and stare at each other as life passes you by. Get out there and do something! (I’m preaching to the choir here.) There ARE fun things to do with teens without spending a lot.    Fun Things to do with Teens 1) Take [...]

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 telling us we’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 [...]

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. It was once touted as the healthiest water to drink. Who doesn’t want healthy water? Little did we know that that very water was leaching minerals from our bodies [...]

Last year we installed one cinder block raised garden bed. We hoped to do three but our bodies and budget gave out at one. Great news! We built the other two raised beds this year! Yay! 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 [...]
