Did I ever tell you about the time ten years ago when my husband and I were invited to be on The Dr. Phil Show? I don’t think I have… Let me give you some back story first. When I was in high school, on Valentine’s Day every year, our school office would be overloaded [...]
I did something ahead of time for a holiday. Can you believe it? I’m feeling rather on the ball right now. I signed up to bring treats to Leah’s Valentine’s Day party at her preschool. I don’t usually do that… I typically leave treat bringing up to the more creative, “pinteresting” moms, but I figured [...]
Happy Friday to you all! It’s time to share things that are making me happy lately… such a great way to start the weekend!

I love both and every time I taste a dish featuring either of these ingredients, I seriously consider giving up my carnivore ways. The first time I had mushrooms and white beans combined was when I tasted [...]
My favorite Instagram photo from the week. January 20th: This past summer we had a rabbit that lived under our front sidewalk. About once every week, Leah goes and stuffs lettuce or carrots down the hole to “take care of her bunny”. January 21st: Ella woke up at 6:30 this morning ready to celebrate Martin [...]
