Baby At 40 Baby At 40

Tweet I have been away for awhile, simply because I have been enjoying our newest addition to the family.  Outside of the enjoyment, I have been just dragging my tail a bit after the birth of my third child.  Having a baby at 40, is a lot harder than when I had the boys at 33.  Things hurt, that I didn’t think were possible in areas that I... [Read more]

November Is National Bread Month! November Is National Bread Month!

Tweet Bread is a staple in our house.  We can sometimes go through up to four loaves of bread in a week.  My husband likes to eat bread plain, toasted, and with sandwiches and I am always making sandwiches for the boys to pack in their lunch.  Bread is one of those things that can be versatile in meals and even recipes.  In fact, it is a primary... [Read more]

Not A Typical Where Have I Been Post Not A Typical Where Have I Been Post

Tweet I guess it has been awhile since I have posted anything personal on my blog.  Life has been crazy over the past months, and I honestly don’t know where to begin.  The boys started school, so that has had me running a whole lot more than I am used to.  It seems like once they start school you are running to a classroom event, here and... [Read more]

Tweet   I used to be intimidated by making pork of any kind, although I  have always liked when my Mom made  pork roasts for family dinners.  They are so good and aren’t nearly as dry as eating a beef roast.  After I got married, I started experimenting with different cuts of pork throughout our marriage and eventually I came up with... [Read more]

Fresh From The Garden Fresh From The Garden

Tweet With this crazy lack of rain, I wasn’t sure that I could grow much of anything this year.  My pepper plants are still looking a little sad, they are growing peppers but the plant isn’t growing upwards. This year we planted some carrots, celery (which the rabbits have eaten), broccoli, three types of tomatoes, potatoes, basil, thyme,... [Read more]

Summer Is Busy Summer Is Busy

Tweet I have been one very busy mama, and that means I rarely sit down in the Summer months.  There is so much happening with our family, and all really fun and exciting stuff. Summer is one of my favorite times.  The warmer weather means we head outdoors as a family and rarely see the inside of the house until the sun goes down.  I have been tending... [Read more]

Seasoned Seasoned

Tweet I can remember when I used to freak out when the boys got hurt.  One time when they were toddlers, one of the boys pulled a chair down on them and a goose egg grew the size of a golf ball out of his head.  I can remember sitting on the floor next the freezer with a bag of frozen peas hysterical.  I think I was crying just as much as he was,... [Read more]

Boys and Girls Clubs Helping Kids Go Back To School Boys and Girls Clubs Helping Kids Go Back To School

Tweet It’s back to school for most, including my boys first year of kindergarten. I was the one who was hesitant about sending them off simply because my babies are growing up.

Ore Ida Grillers Ore Ida Grillers

Tweet Grilling is one of my favorite things to do during the Summer months.  The kids are usually actively playing outside and I like being able to be outdoors with them.  Grilling for me as a mom is much faster and pleasant than being inside with a hot oven, heating up the house.  I love the taste of grilled hamburgers, vegetable and potatoes, and... [Read more of this review]

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler

Tweet I will admit, we aren’t big recyclers in our house.  It isn’t because I don’t think recycling is great, it is because I have no one were to put all the trash for recycling where it isn’t unsightly.  If I had a place to put all the stuff that I could easily get out to the curb in the recycler, than it would make my effort... [Read more of this review]
