The Mindset That Helps Me Keep My House Clean
Hey There Mamas!
Motherhood has provided many challenges, with the biggest one for me being housekeeping. I can keep my cool (usually), play and entertain, cook decent food, teach, read to the kids, and whatnot… but then there’s the mess.

Can you believe that we are heading into fall? Fall 2016!? Back to school, pumpkin everything, and crisp autumn air… oh how I enjoy this time of year.

Chicken Artichoke Pizza
Chicken Artichoke Pizza
Anyone else have “Pizza Friday” at their house? We sure do! Our family loves pizza. Going out for pizza or ordering delivery can take a toll on the budget, so I wanted to try to recreate one of our favorites at home.
DIY Patriotic Wreath!
DIY Patriotic Wreath
Wreath making is fun for every holiday. There’s nothing like hanging up a new wreath that you created. You can use your imagination and inspiration from magazines or craft stores, and get the look you desire. I started making burlap wreaths a couple of years ago for our wedding. It was a rustic feel, so burlap was perfect. You can use ribbon or bandanas like I used for this particular one. I actually wanted to have bandanas going all the way around, but these 4 were all that was left at the store. I decided to work with it, and what I had at home! This wreath is what I came up with. Our front door is 4th of July ready!
Avoid Mommy Burn Out
About 6 months ago I sent my husband the text. I was home with the kids all week while he was working his tail off for us about 300 miles away. Being at home with the kids is such a blessing because I know that they are well taken care of, and my husband doesn’t have to worry about the kids at all while he’s working. I understand this. I try to stay grateful that I have this opportunity, but after 75 diaper changes, 15 episodes of Paw Patrol, and two toddler meltdowns over the course of 5 days, it is hard.
Tassels and Tunics: A Time Saving Summer Fashion Guide for Moms
Do you want to be fashionable like those “put together” moms that you see at the beach or park during summer, but you don’t think that you have the time? (I wrote “put together” in quotes because c’mon… who really has it all together?) It is easier than you might think! I am here to help. Being an independent stylist for Stella & Dot has its perks. I learn about trends and looks that coordinate with our pieces, and I can’t wait to share everything with you!
Chicken Pesto Bake
This chicken pesto is one of my favorite dishes because it is so simple, and it satisfies without being heavy. The tomato and pesto make it a great summertime dinner, as long as you don’t mind using your oven. When I am in a crunch, this is my go to meal. It only has 4 ingredients! It is probably the easiest thing I make.
DIY Baby Mobile
DIY Baby Mobile
Creating this DIY baby mobile for our daughter’s room was one of the most enjoyable crafts that I’ve done. I didn’t even have one for my son’s room when he was a baby because we were on a very tight budget… Think family of 3 living on about $23k a year kind of budget, but that’s a topic for another post… And a crib mobile isn’t exactly a necessity. Knowing this, and knowing how fast the baby stages go, I did not want to spend a lot of money on something that doesn’t get that much use. Sure they are cute, and they entertain your bundle when they wake up before you in the morning… (because they will pretty much ALWAYS wake up before you do, or is that just me? Haha) but let’s be practical here. I’m not dropping $50 and up on a crib mobile.
