The 9 Types of Moms You See at Target

moms at target

I love Target. They don’t even have to pay me to say that! I have been in a relationship with Target for a long time, but it didn’t get serious until I had my third baby and started staying home. I needed a place to go, get a Starbucks and walk around. It gets too hot here for me to walk outside sometimes, and there isn’t a coffee shop anywhere near me (well, now there is but not back then!) {Read More}

Simple Service Idea for kids: Donating to a Food Bank

Simple Service Idea

Did you know that nearly 16 million kids each year are at risk of not getting enough to eat?? That’s more than I though. The hard part is that we don’t always see the face of hunger. While hunger and poverty often go together, families dealing with food insecurity aren’t always living on or below the poverty line. What is a “food insecurity”? A food insecurity refers to the lack of access to enough food to lead a healthy life {Read More}

Ten things I want to eat now that Lent is over

ten things I want to eat

Lent is over! What a joyous time of year spiritually, emotionally, seasonally- and for my belly. Why? Because for Lent I gave up all sweets and processed snacks. So all desserts and things like chips, pretzels, and crackers have been off limits to me for 40 days. Now, yes, I know these things aren’t healthy for me anyways, but life is too short not to enjoy a yummy dessert or some chips every now and again so I am very {Read More}

The Truth about Flying: With and Without Kids

flying with and without kids

In my younger, kid-free days, I loved flying. The atmosphere, the excitement of going to a different place, some quiet time to read or work- it was an enjoyable experience. Fast forward 10 years and now, three kids, and quite a bit of gray hair and wrinkles later, flying is not an experience I enjoy so much, mostly because 9 out of 10 times I am flying with three little, noisy and needly companions. Then there is that 1 out {Read More}

Knowing skipping breakfast is a bad idea because {Read More}
