Genius: Meredith goes through phases where she has these daily screaming meltdowns, and we were in one this week. I am never sure what is the answer to these, because sometimes she’s done something that needs punishing, and other times she just flips out. One day this week we were trying to get out the door to head to daycare/work and she was screaming and crying. Thank God for the extra dose of patience and optimism that I had prayed for that morning, because I picked her up and started singing “This is the day the Lord has made…” and she immediately calmed down and asked me to sing it several more times. She even asked what it meant and we…

30 days of lists : days 1 – 10

September 11, 2014

This month I’m participating in 30 days of lists, a fun journaling idea that challenges you to make one list each day. I’ve been sharing mine daily on Instagram, but today I’m sharing the first ten days with you here. Obviously I’m keeping it super simple! I stamped out the prompts beforehand, and each day I add the washi tape and my list, then snap a quick photo. It’s been easy and fun to keep up with. I love fun little projects like this every once in awhile, and I’ve enjoyed looking through the hashtag #30lists on Instagram to see what everyone else includes on their lists. 0 Like

ultimate healthy living bundle

September 10, 2014

Have y’all heard of the Ultimate Bundles? They are a hugely discounted bundle of resources – ebooks, ecourses, and bonuses like free product – that are only on sale once a year for a few days. Currently there are three of them: healthy living, homemaking, and DIY home. They couldn’t be more appropriate for me, and I’m sure many of you too! Last year my mom bought me the homemaking bundle, and this year I’m super excited about the healthy living bundle. In fact, I signed on to be an affiliate with them because it’s such a great deal and I really love the resources included. Seriously, read about what it is here! If you’re interested in healthy, natural living at…

easy meal planning

September 9, 2014

My adventure with cooking, meal planning, eating healthy, and providing for my family has been one of the more difficult aspects of adulthood for me. There is still so much that I have to learn, but one area that I have become pretty comfortable with lately is meal planning. Today I’m sharing the easy, low-stress way I approach it. Frequency Right now it works best for us to meal plan only a week at a time. Yes, I have to do it more often, but right now we don’t have much freezer space and so we’re at the grocery store once a week anyway. Planning weekly is also much less overwhelming to me. We have a lot of random dinners…

working mama files : amanda nelson from book riot

September 8, 2014

Working Mama Files is an interview series designed to support and encourage working moms along the path to having a fulfilling life. Today I have Amanda from Book Riot joining me! I discovered her from her (now defunct) book blog and have enjoyed keeping up with her since we share taste in books, and also because she is just super interesting, smart, and funny. I link to Book Riot all the time, so I’m excited to have her here today! Who lives in your house? Me (obvs), my husband, my 3-year-old twin boys (Rhett and Atticus), my cat Finnegan and my hound dog Othello. Will you tell us a little about your current job and how you ended up there?…
