I love blender drinks. And my kids love them, too! What I’m not in love with is getting that appliance dirty over and over again. For this reason, I love making batches of smoothies all in a row and tossing them in the freezer. The night before we’re going to [...]
If you haven’t heard that bottled salad dressing has some junky stuff in it, you’ve probably been living under a rock. I kid. But, seriously, it seems everywhere I turn, someone is waxing eloquently about the ills and evils of buying a bottle of ranch.

I’m super duper lucky with the kiddos I got, in so many ways. They’re all fantastic eaters with adventurous and hearty appetites. They’re all fabulous sleepers who go to bed without question and almost never come out, save to use the bathroom. They’re [...]
I don’t often write about products we love and use on this here site. It’s definitely not my focus. And I want to be really clear and upfront in telling you that I gain NOTHING from gushing about this particular item, except knowing that I am absolutely not leading you all astray.

Well, hi. If this post comes across somewhat disjointed, let’s just blame it on the fever, shall we?
Never fear, I got that sucker down with some ibuprofen, tea, and rest. I’m totally fine. But I did get to the point that I read the word “influence” as “influenza”… ah, delirium.
Rebekah posed this question on Facebook yesterday:

And, of course, I replied. I told her that yes, I did. And no, I no longer expect them– and that’s pretty sad. (For the record, we do receive a fair [...]
My husband and I really do like one another. That’s good news.
We also really want to nurture our relationship and enjoy one another. That’s also good news.
But, just for a second, let me paint you a very clear picture of how things had been going down around here:
