Mint Chip Cheesecake Dip

Thank you to Nestle Toll House for sponsoring today’s post. If I am going to be honest, when I’m expected to bring something for an event, you can be sure I wait until the last minute. Always. I’m a big fan of simple crowd pleasers that can be whipped up in about five minutes. One…

Boy’s Room Gallery Wall

boys-room-gallery-wall-16

So by now you realize my, must-switch-all-the-rooms-right-now-chaos, stems from finding out we are pregnant. Barely pregnant, but all of the sudden it just made sense. I mean, does lugging furniture and bending, sorting, and mass chaos sound like a good idea at 8 months pregnant? I think not. So the boys took over our room….

What to Expect

big-brother-1

I’m officially doing this a fourth time. I know, he doesn’t look to happy about it. He is though! Sure, he has no idea what is going on, but he happily points at my stomach and says baby. He mostly thought it was fun to run from me and since he knew I wanted a…

bona-hardwood-cleaner-4

This post is sponsored by Bona, but the mess and opinions are all my own. Heading into this last weekend, I had two goals: attack the mountains of laundry and clean my floors using my new Bona Hardwood Floor Mop. The laundry in and of itself was probably more then a weekend job. I always…

That Giant Space Above the TV

Goodwill-Art-to-Instagram-Display-3

I’m kind of an obsessive re-arranger. It is one of those things I do. I’ve been that way as long as I can remember. Me and my bestie would rearrange our rooms and make plans to decorate it on a shoestring budget monthly. Oh, and I was 11. So it comes as no surprise that…

Flying With Children

flying-with-kids-32

Santa brought the kids plane tickets. You can read more about that here. Quinn has been begging for plane tickets for as long as I can remember. In fact, I’m a little unsure if it was that he wanted to travel to far away places or he really wanted to fly. We were leaving bright…
