How We Live Off One Income With a Baby

  If you’re anything like me, the decision to quit your job and stay at home with the kids was an easy one. The thought of being there for each one of your child’s firsts fills you with joy.

Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing

Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing

Lemme tell ya’ll something: I’m from the South. Something else: My husband is not (he’s a New Yorker), but he LOVES Thanksgiving.

It’s like they read our minds. I’ve been making it for a couple years now, but I noticed recently how dry my chicken was….

How I FINALLY Solved My Paper Problem

How I FINALLY Solved My Paper Problem

Everyone and their hairdresser has been talking about decluttering guru Marie Kondo and her book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up,” so I decided to take the plunge. I snagged it up at my local wholesale store last month, and (while I don’t agree with¬†everything she says) I jumped on board. I consider myself a very organized (and very lazy person), so the idea of decluttering once and for all and never having to do it again appealed to me….

The BEST Italian Dressing Recipe

The BEST Italian Dressing Recipe

I love Pinterest. I love it so much, it’s become my new Google. Need to know how to get sticker residue off your refrigerator? Pinterest! Need inspiration for a shabby chic tea party? Pinterest! Want to find a really good recipe? Search Pinterest! So when my husband read an article that said you should never buy salad dressing because it’s so much easier and tastier when you make it yourself, I hopped on Pinterest to put this claim to the…
