King Arthur Flour Perfect Pizza Blend Recipe Review

I loooove pizza. I’m even getting less picky about my toppings these days (and thus, expanding my horizons). I like ’em frozen, take ‘n bake, fast food, parlor, and from scratch. I have preferences, sure. A great pizza starts with a great foundation. If the dough isn’t very good, it throws the


My Baby is Cruising!

Just a few weeks ago, Rissa started crawling forward. Now, this little girl can zoom around the living room like nobody’s business! She’s fast! Plus she’s pulling herself up on anything a few inches off the ground – mostly the couch – but anything she can use to stand she will! Once

*Adult Talk Ahead!* Sex is part of a healthy relationship, especially if you’re trying to add to your family. I’ve discussed before that sex after childbirth has been intimidating. I’m glad to know now that I’m not alone in that since other women have dealt with this too. So, adding a little


Sans Sucre Baking Mixes {Sugar Free/No Sugar Added Desserts} Review & #Giveaway (Closed)

Sugar and carbs – the thing dreamy desserts are often full of. I’ve always had a sweet tooth which was not a good thing while I was pregnant. Gestational diabetes limited the sugar and carbs I could eat and drink each day until after Rissa was born.  I didn’t really try to

A Couple Posts… Found Elsewhere!

I enjoy guest posting!  I find it fun to do.  Sometimes it can be a challenge to think up something that is good to share with someone else’s audience… but I like those kinds of challenges. Recently I can be found in two other places! 5 Tips to Save Money on Baby


Certain Dri Review & 100 Days of Summer #Giveaway (Closed)

Sweat.  It may be summer, but that doesn’t mean you need to suffer from excessive perspiration.  This can be embarrassing for many people, but it is a very real thing.  Brian actually has this issue of excessive perspiration.  We knew it wasn’t normal because his armpits would get really sweaty while sitting


Thank You for Breastfeeding Me, Mom

My mother breastfed me for about 6 weeks.  I knew I’d been breastfed because my parents had told me that a few times throughout my life.  When I was younger, that embarrassed me for some reason.  It wasn’t until having my own daughter did I know any specifics of my nursing relationship

How My View of Breastfeeding Has Changed

I used to prefer not to witness it, but it didn’t bother me. I used to think you should cover up, but now I don’t.  My daughter doesn’t like to be covered and neither do I.  I don’t normally wear a blanket over my head at dinner – do you? I used


Spreading School Supplies Around to Kids in Need and Teachers Too! #BagItForward

Not too long ago, I shared with you about the Bag It Forward program, where you can help by donating a bag of school supplies to a child in need.  You can do this yourself by shopping and donating and you can virtually “bag it forward” by sharing the information from the


Are You a Lactivist? #Breastfeeding

Yesterday I managed to sneak in some Twitter time that was more than just lurking.  I caught sight of a tweet by @Greek_Momma about how people need to see us nursing in public to normalize breastfeeding.  Of course, I had to let her know I agree!  She mentioned that she is a Lactivist


Reading for New Moms: Transformational Mothering Book Review

Being a new mother is hard. I think most of us can agree with that. It’s a time of mixed emotions, learning, and transition. It’s wonderful and scary all at the same time! I’ve read my fair share of parenting books but few did much to comfort me. Actually, a lot of
