Thank you to Upromise for sponsoring this post and for bringing awareness about the financial elephant in the room. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

Our daughter is in her junior year of high school. Up til now, she has been undecided about what she wants to do, but recently shared with me her desire to go to online art school. She wants to be a comic book designer, or an illustrator for children’s books. I think she has chosen a wonderful career that goes along beautifully with her strengths, but now we have to address the topic that most families hate to address: the college tuition and financial side of it all.

It is time for us to address the financial elephant in the room.  →']);" class="more-link">Continue reading

I never go to bed with earphones on. I have this crazy dream that I am going to get all tangled up in the cord, the phones will come out of my ears, and get wrapped all around my neck. Then — I learned about Bedphones — and my fears took a backseat. These sleep headphones are awesome.

Thank you to Unilever USA for sponsoring this post on child hunger. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

About 12 years ago we lived in a neighborhood that was FILLED with kids. Every single afternoon our yard was run over with kids from all walks of life playing football, chasing each other, or just sitting around having a good time talking. It was then that my husband and I realized what an amazing ministry we had created without even trying. We decided to take it a step further and provide hot meals and snacks every day for these kids. It was some of the best years of our lives.

Today is my anniversary. I have been married now for 21 years, but have been with my husband for 23 years. He is my rockstar. He is my cheerleader. He is my soulmate. While we plan on going out tonight to celebrate our special day, earlier this week, I decided to surprise him with a simple gift that says “You’re Extra Special to Me”, just because. I used Extra Gum and a few of his favorite things. Here is how I did that. →']);" class="more-link">Continue reading

One thing about Christmas morning around here is that I make a BIG spread for breakfast. I start the night before and make a delicious sausage and egg casserole, homemade candied bacon, and my delicious homemade cinnamon rolls. This year, I decided to to use Splenda and give my very decadent cinnamon rolls a #sweetswaps switch.

This morning my son sat down next to me and said, “Mom — I just watched this trailer for a hilarious new movie. I have to show it to you.” I laughed when he showed me because at that moment, I was just getting ready to tell you all about it! Inside Out — the newest movie from Disney/Pixar is coming out and it looks to be hilarious!

Have you ever wondered about those little voices in your head?
