HOW MUCH DID I SPEND AT STARBUCKS

Are you curious about how much the average person spends on groceries, coffee, dining out and misc. expenditures every month like I am?!?! Well today I am going to share with YOU, how much money I spent at Starbucks in the last 30 days!!!  I was doing so well staying on my special-treat-Sbux-Friday and three things happened to bring me to what I am about to share…dun…dun…dun…  Ok…it’s not that bad.

WEEKEND RECAP: FOOTBALL PRACTICE, LAUNDRY AND TAMMY

As you can tell, I took the last few days off for the long holiday weekend. I sent all the staff home from the office, shut down production and turned all my calls over to the answering service. Ha…who am I kidding, I wish! Wouldn’t that be nice…?! For a quick recap of the long weekend, 4th of July we had to work, it’s Friday…the cows don’t care, they still want to be fed and taken care of. The kids…

“MOM-FESSIONAL” & OATMEAL BREAKFAST SQUARE

Today I am sharing with you a recipe I created for breakfast, snack or anytime.

You know because a mom confessional and oatmeal square go together so well… 🙂 —————————————————————————————————————————- My husband has a GREAT relationship with our kiddos, he is an…

The knives scream summer to me. My top 5 kitchen essentials would most definitely be:  EXCLUDING…

SUNDAY RECAP AND AMAZING NACHOS

Sunday was our much needed day off! I have been feeling overwhelmed all week from being off my normal routine, I am a creature of habit and so are my kiddos. When you fly twice to Sacramento within a week and drive 5 1/2 hours each way to get to our destination and back to catch a plane is exhausting. AND then in between both trips have a spa day with your sister-inlaw (it was amaze balls I might add)…

TURKEY PEPPERONI SPAGHETTI

I cook just about every night of the week, and I have learned you need to have a few key things that you can whip up in a jif after getting off work, school, practice etc.  A meal that satisfies the whole family, this usually has to do with pasta…or pizza for my fam! I came up with this recipe on one of those days when you are looking in the pantry and fridge thinking, what am I going to…

HOMESCHOOL LIFE: BOOK HAUL & GIVEAWAY

Today I thought it would be fun to share with you a collection of books I’ve acquired in the last month or two. Some of the books are for school purposes and some are for fun. All reading is important and it’s good to have a wide variety and selection of books.   Some of my favorite places to buy books are Sam’s Club, Walmart and Amazon.com. We are Amazon Prime members, so we get free next day shipping and…
