I have noticed that I have a lot of dessert recipes on my blog. Whoops. I totally am not apologizing for that at all. Dessert is my favorite meal of the day. I always always always have a dessert around my house. They are fun to make and even more fun to eat. Although my thighs may not agree with me on that aspect. But I realize that I have to switch it up time and time again and give you guys some other good stuff…say a pasta dinner dish? Read more

Hey everyone, another Monday is upon us. This is the last week my kids have off before school starts. I think there are mixed emotions in this household. I know that they miss their friends, but I know that they are going to miss being able to do whatever they want as well. Hopefully it will be an easy adjustment them getting up daily at a certain time again. Usually they are pretty good at it, but my 8-year-old has had some problems in the past of wanting to get up and stay up. Read more

Hey everyone. Friday is already upon us. To me right now it actually doesn’t make much of a difference. My daughter has been sick since Wednesday so all the day’s have been sort of mashing into one another! Had to bring her into the ER last night around midnight because she was in so much pain but apparently it’s only cold so we have to wait it out. My poor princess. Anyways, I hope your week is going better than mine so far!  Read more

Hey guys! Yeah so this post is late. Usually I schedule my posts to be posted at 6 am, nope didn’t happen. I got home at 9 last night, took a shower and ate and went to bed. My 8-year-old had a baseball game, last one for the season last night. So drove a good 40 minutes there and back and with the heat the way it has been the last few days I didn’t get to posting. I’m sorry will you ever forgive me? At least its better late than never! Read more

You guys, I feel so out of the loop. I seriously don’t adjust well to coming back from vacations. The unpacking, the washing, the cleaning, the putting things back in order. Usually takes me a while since I’m so meticulous about it. For some reason I just can’t get back into the swing of things. It doesn’t help that I come back and I have activity after activity that I need my kids to go to. Ugh, parenthood. Gotta love it! Soon I will hopefully be back to my normal self. Read more

BLT Pasta Salad


Is anyone else as happy as I am that summer is nearing? This is my most favorite time of year. I live in Minnesota and the majority of our year is spent in the cold weather. Heck, just the other day it was 40 degrees out and now today its 75. Mother nature here just cannot make up her mind. I can in all honestly say that after my kids grow up and start their lives I am going to be a snow bird. Read more
