You know the kind. The high school losers seniors who had to take the bus to school. Because their parents didn’t love them enough have money to buy them a car on their 16th birthday. And they had absolutely no life besides homework and a job. That was me! (Shyly raising my hand and sinkingContinue Reading..
Before having kids, I was one of those people who couldn’t believe parents who “let” their kids: cry, kick the seat in front of them, scream, run around, eat candy and snacks whenever, and walk in front of people. I also was appalled by the little backpack leash that looked like the kid was aContinue Reading..
A month ago, I started feeding my now 7-month-old homemade baby food, or purees if you prefer. As promised, I will take you through how the first month went with Bella, and then I will give you a preview of what I am planning for month 2. Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

When I quit my job nearly two years ago to become a stay-at-home mom, I was making more money than my husband was. Shocking, right?! So why did I quit? I wanted to stay home with my daughter, and I knew that nobody would take care of her like I could. It takes a tonContinue Reading..
My husband introduced me to his special Tomato & Cucumber Salad just a few years ago, and I’ve been loving it ever since. We eat a ton of tomatoes and garlic around here, so we can usually throw this together at the last minute and have a scrumptious, healthy, and cheap side dish for justContinue Reading..
Three months before our first baby was due, we took a little vacation. You might know this type of getaway as a “Babymoon.” It was all baby and no moon, that’s for sure! 😉 All the vacations we’ve ever been on together have been road trips, except this particular one. We decided that since IContinue Reading..
The past few days, our entire routine was thrown off balance and into orbit! We were in Portland for my brother-in-law’s wedding, and we had no choice but to go with the flow of everything happening around us. Naps were almost foregone, snack time was hit and miss, and we had far too many lateContinue Reading..
This is the summer of watermelon for us. We normally only buy one or two watermelons every summer, but we’ve already bought four! Our daughter loves it, it’s a great way to get some more liquids into our bodies, and it’s super refreshing and healthy! Last week, my husband brought home two watermelons from theContinue Reading..
A few months ago, I mentioned that we don’t have a will. I wish I could tell you today that we finally got down to business and wrote one. Sorry to burst your bubble, but it still hasn’t happened. I promise that after we come back from our small trip this weekend, I will getContinue Reading..
Sofía is officially a 2 year old. What a year it’s been! If you’ve ever raised even one child, I’m sure you can agree with my list of the top 10 things I’ve learned about 1 year olds over the past year. One day they’re sweet as a popsicle, and the next day they areContinue Reading..
This Saturday, I will start feeding my 6-month-old purees. I plan on making all of them, because I’m not a huge fan of the jarred baby food from the store. I have a personal philosophy that if I wouldn’t eat it, my kids should stay far from it! When I started making baby food, IContinue Reading..
On our first date, my husband and I ate Cornflake Casserole. That first date was 8 years ago today, so, to commemorate, I give you Cornflake Casserole. Another name for this dish is “Funeral Potatoes,” because they are normally served after funerals here in Utah. Our family’s version is pretty different from most Funeral Potatoes.Continue Reading..
