Stitch Fix Unboxing – May 2016

I made a video (ahhhhhh!!!) for my May 2016 Stitch Fix unboxing. Don’t judge my clothes and/or the fact I have a hat on. Ideally I wouldn’t have done this after a long day running errands, working in the yard, etc. (you know, typical Saturday stuff) but, alas, that’s what we’ve got. I’ll try to do better next time 🙂

Stay tuned for the Review post!

Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals #12

This week wasn’t quite as nuts but, wow, I feel like we should have a small party to celebrate the survival of each week. And by ‘celebration,’ I mean uninterrupted sleep 🙂 We’ve started t-ball practice but games don’t start for another few weeks so we have a little lull until that happens. We’re still managing to find plenty to do, as you can imagine, but hopefully we’ll have more time to try out these meals this week.

This week we made the Skillet Lasagna I shared in Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals #10. It was good but, I think we can make a few tweaks that will make it even better. Stay (more…)

Gifts for Her You Haven’t Thought Of

You have 2 weeks until Mother’s Day, the clock is ticking. Do you know what you’re getting the special mom(s) in your life? Those of you that are mothers, are you tired of getting the same old Mother’s Day gifts or *gasp* nothing at all? Are you looking to give a friendly nudge to someone as to what to get you? Look no further!

Gifts for Her You Haven't Thought Of -

Fortunately for me, I chose the best gift-giving husband ever. Really, he’s amazing at gift giving. Birthday, Mother’s Day, anniversary, Christmas, he’s got it all covered. He’s always thinking outside the box, (more…)

Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals #11

When this is posted, I’ll be livin’ it up at the school carnival. No, no, don’t be jealous. Not everybody can spend their Friday night at an elementary school carnival, just cool people like me 🙂 On a serious note, by the time you see this, the carnival will be almost over and I’ll be a happy mamma.

Because I’m writing and scheduling this post earlier than normal in the week, we haven’t tried any of the meals from Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals #10 yet. We plan to, but (more…)

Cheesy Mexican Cornbread Bake

Last week we made the Cheesy Taco Bake I shared in Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals #9. We liked it but thought it could be improved so we made it tonight with a few changes and it was a success. We’ll definitely be making this one again.

First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees and start your meat browning. While that’s going, mix the 2 boxes of cornbread as directed on the box (more…)

Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals #10

Yay, we all survived another week! This week I have Asian, Mexican, and Italian-inspired meals. I’m very cultured. Just kidding, I just like to eat and don’t discriminate as to where it comes from 🙂

Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals #10 -

This week was busy but not quite as crazy as the past few so that was nice. We made all (more…)

How to Get Started Paying Your Student Loans

The student loan (cue the horror movie music). The dreaded debt I want so badly to ignore but just can’t. Not a day goes by I don’t log in and see how much interest has accumulated since my last payment and figure out if there’s a way I can squeeze another payment in to knock it down. I’m slightly obsessed with getting rid of it right now.

How to Get Started Paying Your Student Loans -

I got out of undergrad with a small amount of debt thanks to Missouri’s A+ program and scholarships. Law school, that was a different story. While my debt isn’t near what some others have, any debt (more…)

Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals #9

You know those weeks when you try to cram too much in? Yeah, this is one of those. I was tired before the week really even got started just thinking about the craziness. Although I don’t think things will slow down anytime soon, it’s all good. T-ball starts next week which I’ve very much been looking forward to. Audrie was super excited to get her cleats and glove and has been wanting to practice which is a pleasant surprise for this mamma.

Still not back at the gym but I do seem to be making progress with physical therapy. Although when (more…)

My Fix came this weekend!! It’s a little ridiculous how excited I get when my Fix comes. Think kid in candy store and you’ve got the picture. While this Fix wasn’t perfect and I’m not keeping everything, it did take me out of my comfort zone which is one of the main reasons I love Stitch Fix.

Stitch Fix Collage - April 2016

With the weather getting warmer, I’m ready to break out of my sweaters and boots. I’ll be ready for those again come October (more…)

Quick & Easy Weeknight Meals

Even without going to the gym this week, I stayed mostly on track with my eating and for this reason, I still feel good. I ate a lot on Easter and felt awful at the end of the day but everything was so delicious and it was totally worth it. Even thought I’m at the end of my 3 week challenge, I’m going to try keep limiting my white carbs. It’s really not difficult to do.

Not gonna lie, I’m really bummed to not be able to finish the 21-day competition at the gym. I gotta get this back thing figured out before I can work out again. The flare-ups (more…)
