Easy Fruit Cobbler {dairy-free/egg-free option}

Easy Fruit Cobbler {dairy-free/egg-free option}

I wanted to pop on here and share a quick recipe post with you guys. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know our lives the past three weeks have been CRAY-CRAY (yes, I said that) with VBS and swimming lessons. Something you should know about Hermit Introverts (#hermitintrovert) is that when they have to leave home every day, it makes them feel loopy and unable to form intelligent sentences. My standard answer these days to any question is, "Uhhhhhhhhhhhh?" So, I could write a funny … [Read more...]

How We Pay Cash for Our Cars   (…and trucks and vans…and everything else)

Post by Barry, the husband We bought a van last week.

Keeping Toys in One Spot

Keeping Toys in One Spot

There are no more toys in our kids' bedrooms. There are no more toys in the kitchen. There are no more toys in the living room. They have migrated on the winds of the Northern Wind called Mommy.

8 easy ways to declutter your Pinterest boards

Post from Contributing Author Becky of Unabridged Becky This month, Stacy is inspiring us to clear out the clutter in our homes. I’ve been working alongside her decluttering my closet, sorting through my craft supplies and finally cleaning my basement. Y’all, my basement alone could be on an episode of Hoarders! It felt so good to sort through things and figure out what actually brought me joy. But as I cleaned things out, I found many things that brought me joy but I’d never used because I … [Read more...]
