Boba 4g Baby Carrier

I’m a huge fan of baby wearing. When I was pregnant with Autumn, we even put my youngest sister in the Moby Wrap just to see how we could make it work and it was awesome. I loved using the Moby Wrap until Autumn got too big for it and I wished I had something I...

Delicious Baked Salmon

I really like cooking shows. When I get on a cooking show kick, I also usually end up getting inspired to make something different than my usual meals like Red Bean Taco Soup or our Freezer Enchiladas, basically anything I can make in my cast iron or my InstantPot....

Grilled Chicken for the Freezer

Back in January when I was working my booty off to get prepared for baby Logan I had what started off as an amazing week. I made a very ambitious meal plan and got two flats of boneless skinless chicken breasts to make a nice selection of new adventurous meals. Fast...

Our Family’s In-Home Aquaponics System

I’m not great with gardening. I’m not a terribly consistent person, so I struggle with keeping plants alive. People and pets I’m great with! Plants… not my thing. So when I saw the Back to the Roots Water Garden I got really excited. I liked...

SwagBucks Math – How Much Are Your SB Worth?

I really love SwagBucks’ rewards program. I know a lot of bloggers talk about it how much they earn. I haven’t earned a ton, but I don’t really put a lot of effort into it these days. Over my lifetime I’ve only earned just a little over 6,000...

Working from Home with a Toddler & Baby

Working for yourself always has challenged and struggled, but can I just say that working for myself from home with both little people at home has been a huge adjustment! I have been asked more times than I can count recently how I work from home with both a little...

Becoming a Work from Home Mom

My family has always been one who had a business going. At first, it was Homemaking911, which is where I began to learn about WordPress and all of the bloggy stuff. Then we owned a wheat business and eventually I moved out, got married and started my own business. I...

How We’re Using Rebates to Go Debt-Free Faster

I really like shopping online. I love the convenience, the ability to do an instant price check without wasting gas, and I don’t have to time my shopping trip in between naps, feeding children and the dozens of other things I do on a normal day. One of the...

30 Days of Simplifying 10 Items a Day: Week 1

If you’re following along with the series, yesterday I started talking about how I plan to have 30 days of simplifying 10 items a day. Yesterday was my day 1 and I spent it making a list of all the things I wanted to accomplish, including the things I wanted to...

30 Days of Simplifying 10 Items a Day: Introduction

I am overwhelmed. I had all of the best intentions while I was pregnant to pare down and get all of the clutter out of my house before Logan was born, but that just didn’t happen. I know better than to make those assumptions because decluttering isn’t a...

Helping a Toddler Adjust to Life with a New Baby

Having something, or someone there just for them. When Logan was born I had a babysitter lined up to come play with her during the day the week. She has a babysitter that she really loves to spend time with and so I knew it would be a big treat for her to have some...

Automatic Savings with Digit

I was very excited about Digit when I first saw it. My husband was not crazy about the idea of someone/something else handling our money but he reluctantly agreed to try it. The thing I was excited about was not that it’s automatic, but that it’s...

What It’s Like the First Few Days Postpartum

Logan was born on February (you can read my extraordinarily long birth story here) and I had the presence of mind when I was there to take notes on my phone because I knew I would want to blog about it, so here are my unedited notes I took on my phone the first few...

Logan’s Birth Story

I had every intention of doing everything natural with Logan’s birth, but obviously he had his own plans. Because it’s all wrapped up in the same story, I’m actually going to share some of my journal entries from the days leading up to his birth, as...

12 Things I Did to Prepare in My Second Trimester for Baby #2

This week was my last week of my second trimester and I'm very excited. I feel good about going into my last three months and feel like I'm mostly prepared. I'm due to have baby Logan in February and I'm really excited as we get closer to the 14th. Of...

14 Things You Can Have People Help With Before Baby Comes

So, time for some real truth here: I hate having people clean my house, I hate having them in my kitchen and I can barely stomach the thought of any of it – not because I don't think other people do a good job, but because I am very prideful and I like...

9 Things to Do to Help You Adjust and Heal After Baby is Born

Coming home with a new baby, everything is different. It’s going to be wonderful and it’s going to be hard no matter how many clever parenting hacks you found on Pinterest when you were pregnant and had blissful dreams of having it all together when you...

Estimating Hospital Costs for Labor and Delivery

One of the things I think about most when I’m pregnant is being prepared. I stockpile, clean like crazy, organize like someone is going to come and do a thorough inspection of every closet, cabinet and clutter hiding place, and then of course, there are the...
