#40BagsIn40Days Challenge Wrapup


Well, I did it! I finished the challenge. I don’t think I got rid of 40 bags of garbage altogether, but I got rid of a lot. I have so much more still to go. Last week I told you I wanted to hit 4 spots in my house: the boys’ room, girls’ room, book shelf, and basement toy room. I got to all but the toy room. I feel really good with the progress I made through Lent cleaning out my house and…

If you’re a normal visitor to my blog, you’re probably wondering why I’m talking about infertility when I have four kids. We’ve always wanted a large family and decided we wanted them close together. When Buddy was 3 months old we decided it was time to start trying again. It was frustrating because month after…

Yale Real Living Key Free Deadbolt

#Review of the Yale Real Living Touchscreen Deadbolt @YaleRealLiving #ad

Yale Keyless LockI was recently asked if I’d like to try out a Yale Real Living Key Free Deadbolt for my door. I thought “wow! how high tech!” I said yes, because I hate having keys given out to everyone all over the place for when they pet sit for us (or a roommate that never returned my key.) Now I can program up to 25 different codes for different users! No one has to know one another’s code! Of course all…

Week 5 #40BagsIn40Days Challenge

Week 5 #40BagsIn40Days Challenge


So… I had great intentions for last week. Unfortunately my kids were on spring break. My biggest goal last week was to keep the kids happy and busy so my house wouldn’t become a complete disaster and they would have a great break. I accomplished keeping the kids busy and the house didn’t get too wrecked, but I’m REALLY behind on laundry and my kitchen has been a mess since Saturday. I got it…

TBT Netflix

In honor of Throwback Thursday or #TBT, Netflix has sent me a list of old shows to check out and help me take a trip down memory lane. This picture above is of me and my husband when we were dating in high school. I think we were Sophomores in this picture, so that would be around 1994. We will have been together on and off for 21 years this year. That is CRAZY! We will be married for 12 years…

Trash Pack #Review and #Giveaway- Win an #Easter Basket!

Trash Pack Review and Giveaway #Easter

You may remember I gave out some Trash Pack toys at Halloween instead of giving out candy. My kids really enjoyed playing with these little squishy toys. They still play with the ones we got at Halloween. I was asked to review some new Trashies and to also give away an Easter basket of Trash Packs to make someone’s Easter morning full of trash and fun. (As always, all opinions are my own.)

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf {Gluten Free}

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf {Gluten Free} #UdisGlutenFree

Gluten Free Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf #UdisGlutenFreeYou may remember that we tried out some Udi’s Gluten Free products two weeks ago. The breads they sent us to try just were not our style but I wanted to do something with them. I decided to use the Udi’s Omega Flax & Fiber Gluten Free bread to make a meatloaf. Then inspiration hit and I decided to stuff the meatloaf with cheddar cheese and bacon. YUM!

Week 4 #40BagsIn40Days Challenge


Last week I didn’t get much accomplished. Knowing I had spring break coming up with the kids this week, I wanted to have all of my work scheduled if possible. So in order to meet deadlines, I was writing, A LOT, last week to make it happen. We also decided to take a last minute vacation, so I was getting the guest room ready (what this post is about), doing laundry, and packing. I also had to…
