Lead Poisoning: Could It Happen In Your Home?

Lead Poisoning: Could it Happen in Your Home?

Have you ever had to fill out a Lead Risk Questionnaire at your child’s annual well-child check up? We have many times and having lived in several old houses we usually have a risk factor or two that requires us to have them tested. Usually they come back with undetectable amounts. I’ve never thought too […]

How I ended up a MilSpouse {Our Love Story} and an Outback Steakhouse Giveaway

Outback Logo

This post is sponsored by Outback Steakhouse. As always, all opinions are my own. It never crossed my mind that I’d end up a military spouse, but walking to my car one evening after meeting a friend for a drink in Charleston, SC a stranger crossed my path. All I really remember is that he […]

Merry Christmas!

I’m taking the next week off blogging to spend quality time with my family! I feel like my days go by at 60 mph lately. I’m forcing myself to take break from technology to give my undivided attention to my family. That’s something I don’t do it often enough! It’s been over two years since […]

Home Tour: The Office

If you’ve been following me the last few months, you know we recently moved into a Historic Home that was built in 1848.  I’ve shown you the kitchen, my 2 and 4 year old’s kid rooms, and the backyard and you’ve seen peeks of the front of the house and the dining room in various […]

This picture is a freshly printed Orientation Schedule and Program Guide.  I’m 31 years old and I’m going back to school…again.  I actually like school.  It’s just that I already have a lot on my plate as it is…a house to keep up, 3 small kids, and blogging, among other things!  So going back to […]

Tapas Night (Tale of an At-Home Date Night)

Part of this week’s Meal Plan Monday included a Tapas Night.  I decided to treat my hubby to an at-home date night comprised of some of our favorite tapas style dishes.  I made Stuffed Mushrooms, Bacon Wrapped Dates stuffed with Goat Cheese and Jalapenos with a Raspberry Sauce Drizzle, and Baked Brie with Cranberry and Walnuts. […]

A Momma’s Letter: What I want my Children to know as they go out in the Real World…

With all the drama this year (Chick-Fil-A, the Election, the child kidnappings and unspeakable murders, etc.)  it has me thinking about my oldest child going out in the real world next year when he starts Kindergarten.  And then my other two will follow shortly behind.  It’s more than a bit terrifying for a Momma to […]

“Welcome” Chalkboard and Outdoor Tour

A week or so ago, I showed you a simple project I did to turn a mirror into a chalkboard (as well as a peek into my new craft room).  I ultimately decided to hang it outside with a “Welcome” message. I wanted the outdoor space to have a cozy “indoor” room feel to it so […]

Home Tour: The Kitchen

If you’ve been following me recently, you know we finally moved out of Oklahoma to just outside of St. Louis.  We found an amazing home to rent for the next few years and I’m so in love with it.  It was built in the 1800s and is an official historic home of the area.  The […]

A little update (and pics of the new house!)

I know posts have been far and few between during our move transition but by mid September we’ll be settled and I’ll be back to my usual posting frequency.  In the meantime, I am SO excited to share pics of our new home with you.  We found an amazing historic home to rent that was […]
