Best At Home Date Nights

With four kids, one under the age of one who still depends on mama to eat, it’s hard for Math Man and me to find time away from home. In fact, as I type this, I realize it is going on 9 months since the last time we did something alone — unless you count...

Make Christmas Magic with the Portable North Pole!

Ever since learning about the Portable North Pole (or PNP), I’ve made sure that Santa sends a video message to my kids. Flash will receive his first message this year as he has been too little to understand before this Christmas season. Miss Sassy Pants has...

Our favorite movies (for everyone!)

Every Christmas growing up, we spent the end of the Christmas day watching a movie (or two!). We’d all lie on the floor in the living room with our stockings of candy and sometimes even fall asleep. This tradition is one of my absolute favorites from growing up,...

PillowEase Support Seat Cushion (Review)

Thankful: Students who keep me relevant

Every year in November, I try to post on Facebook a daily expression of my thankfulness. This year, I’ve decided to go one step further and blog daily with these thankful posts. Considering how overwhelmed I’ve been lately, I thought this series would do one of two...

Blessings: A Full Plate (Days 30-33)

Verse to ponder: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. Colossians 3:23 I’m posting 4 days worth of blessings in one post because life happened. It has been an insane last four days filled with grading,...

Blessings: Language Acquisition (Day 19)

Verse to ponder: Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with...

Cheap & Easy Halloween Makeup Tutorial: Undead!

Our house loves Halloween. I’m almost embarrassed to say that we count down to it much like we count down to Christmas. (I promise that this year, we’re going to really talk about the meaning of Christmas with the littles!) With the excitement comes...

My First Stitch Fix
