I feel like a broken record, but I fell off my night time routine, yet again. 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.

This year's Easter baskets I kept more simple. I've had to use some stickers and treats sooner with during "social distancing." I've also given the kiddos their Easter pajamas early. These Anna dresses I spotted at Walmart over a month ago for only $3 from $16.00 a piece.Harry's pj's were $3.00 as well but they … Continue reading Easter Baskets [4.5 & 2 Year Olds]
Just as with most things in life, decluttering is NOT a destination, it's a journey. Just because you declutter once, doesn't mean that is the end. You have to continue on with the process and be more mindful of the items that enter your home. Even though I had decluttered the kitchen earlier this year, … Continue reading Decluttering for the Holidays
I had all intentions for this past weekend to be super productive, but life happened. I got really sick late afternoon on Friday and it just spilled into the weekend. I even ended up not working out for four days straight; that is something that has not happened since I was about a month postpartum … Continue reading Week Recap.

Wake up times can vary (especially depending on nap times the day before) … Continue reading My Morning Routine [w/ 3 Kids]
