I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the move. Between the blogging, chores, homeschooling, appointments, field trips and all the other errands, events and obligations that show up randomly throughout the days, weeks and months I sometimes forget to eat! I love all of these things that make up my life. Thriving on chaos seems to be my motto. I seriously go stir crazy if I feel like I don’t have anything to do. My hands need to be busy and my mind needs to be full. For me, that is a fantastic life Continue reading

As long as I can remember I have been in love with Strawberry Pretzel Dessert. It’s an amazing blend of salty and sweet, slightly crunchy and creamy, and the flavors are amazing. My daughter has an allergy to Red Dye 40, so much to my disappointment, this has been a recipe I haven’t been able to create for my children due to the addition of Jell-o, which we love and it’s something she misses greatly. I’ve been wanting to create this for my kids and I was at a loss of how to go about it, until this Spring. I had a brilliant idea! Continue reading

Charlie, my six year old, wants to be a paleontologist. This is what she’s wanted to be for over a year and she’s still extremely passionate about it. Although, the other day she did tell me that maybe she just wanted to work with anything that had to do with animals…and dinosaurs…but animals too.

She loves to learn, she loves to ask questions, and she’s amazed by all of the amazing things she can learn about animals, including the ways people learn about animals and the world around them. Continue reading

We’re in the middle of NCAA® March Madness celebrations and I wanted to put a new spin on our snack bar for our friends.

About two and a half months ago I turned 35. I know, it’s hard to believe, but it’s true. My age is creeping up on me and I’m starting to notice things about my body. Different things. Things that happen with age.

For example. At some point I must have had an unfortunate run in with a skunk. Here’s the proof. Continue reading

In honor of this tradition, I thought I’d share five simple ideas to get you started on green living. Continue reading
