Crock Pot Taco Soup

Crock Pot Taco Soup

Crock Pot Taco Soup is our family go-to meal when we are looking for something easy and quick to make that can last for days. Everyone likes this meal in our family with the exception of the little one, my stepson and husband love it. Another great perk about this meal is that it makes great leftovers and some would say tastes better that way! You can make this recipe using a crock pot or just by mixing it all together and leaving it on the stove ... [ Read More ]

Displaying Toddler Artwork at Home

Displaying Toddler Artwork

I love decorating the house, but I don't love spending outrageous amounts of money on someone else's perception of "art". I choose to decorate my home mainly with pictures, homemade artwork, and items that I find on sale. If I had all the money in the world, sure, I would feel okay dropping a few hundred dollars on a painting, but that isn't where I am in my life right now! Therefore, I have to get creative on displaying toddler artwork at ... [ Read More ]

Why I am Done Trying to Sell My Clothes

My Clothes

Disclaimer: All Opinions and Thoughts are Mine.  Remember last week when I cleaned out my closet and had a trunk full of clothes that I was going to donate? Last minute, I decided that I was going to sell two of my bags to Clothes Mentor to make a little bit of cash. Sounded like a great idea in theory! I would donate half of the clothes and make some extra money. I have shopped at Clothes Mentor plenty of times and was always impressed ... [ Read More ]

Easy Toddler Activities

Easy Toddler Activities

Entertaining a toddler is fun but can be tough work. They get bored easily and once they find something they really like they play with it a million times to later to ignore it completely. It's not that there isn't a lack of toys on the market. A matter of fact it can be very tempting to buy them all, but then we would be broke or in massive amounts of debt. What I have found is that there are several easy toddler activities you can do at home ... [ Read More ]

Simplifying Your Life: One Room at a Time

Simplifying your LIfe

Do you ever wonder what your day would be like by simplifying your life? Some days I feel like the junk, clutter, and overwhelming stress of things cloud my mind and focus. Every day as I get ready for work, I stand still in my closet staring at the rows of clothes that appear in front of my hazy and tired eyes. Like a food menu, there are way too many options. Ten minutes later, I end up picking an outfit that I wore the week before. It happens ... [ Read More ]

Pampers Easy Ups Giveaway

Pampers Easy Ups

This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.  I had a dream that one day my toddler would be potty trained by the time she was two-years-old. Then, reality set in. She is just shy of turning two and some days I feel like she may be in a diaper forever.  I thought she was interested a few months ago, so we tried a few ... [ Read More ]
