I have finally came to the conclusion that I do not sleep enough. It has been an issue since I had my first-born 10 years ago. I literally can wake up to the sound of someone touching the door handle. It’s probably the natural motherly thing that happens but dang.

So it’s the first official weekend since school has been out. It honestly doesn’t feel any different. My boy’s are already telling me they are bored by 10:00 am.

THAT GOOD!!! CANDIED BACON, chocolate chips, caramel, sea salt?!?!? Now who can deny that’s not a heaven you want to be in? Read more
