When I was about to have my first, the thought of being a stay at home mom was awful. But the thought of being a full-time working mom was awful too. I knew both "full-time" roles weren't for me - I wanted to do both part-time. With my first, I went back to work at … Continue reading Life As A Stay At Home Mom.
So I didn't get my groceries for the month under $450 as intended. My groceries came out to $452, which honestly I'm fine with. I will say I did focus on cooking more and also thought twice, if not three times on many purchases. If anything, had I not done the no spend month, I … Continue reading No Spend 2021 Recap.

Mainly because the kiddos have been going to bed after 8, but now that it's getting darker earlier, it has made a difference. They are typically now in bed by 7:45pm the latest. In the past few days, I … Continue reading August Favorites.

We've been spending a lot of time at that local "field." I honestly don't know we haven't before.It's only a two minute drive away. There's a pond, a soccer area and picnic benches. We've had meals there, played with kites and even just thrown rocks into the pond.They have a small "beach" area, that is … Continue reading Enjoying Simple Things.
A few weeks ago it seemed as if the "stay at home" order in my state was going to be extended. But then all of a sudden, New Hampshire was [pretty much] going to reopen on June 15th. That's just how it's been; things can turn a complete 180 the next week or even the … Continue reading NH Reopens.
Hello friends, we are back on [blog] track. 🙂 I've been trying to find little joys in some "not so common" things for myself.
