For the last 6 years, I’ve done a weekly bible study called Bible Study Fellowship. If you are looking for a study to help your faith grow or to learn how to better study the bible, BSF is worth checking out. It’s an interdenominational bible study and there are groups that meet all over the world. […]
Before we had kids, we didn’t have great eating habits. We’d eat fast food a couple of times a week. I’d also eat fast food with my co-workers a couple of times a week as well. I had begun making more meals at home but I still wasn’t a great cook. We ate lots of […]
Can you believe it’s already June? The month of May just flew by! Each year I marvel at how busy May continues to be. Ballet recitals, parties to celebrate the end of school and so many other events celebrating the beginning to summer. It’s all fun but just keeps us busy. Every Memorial Day weekend, […]
Hello there friends! I wasn’t planning on taking such a long break from blogging but I’m glad I did. Even a short break gives me time to miss blogging. I enjoy sharing recipes and keeping up this blog but constantly churning out posts can be draining. I’m returning from my hiatus refreshed and I’ve got […]
Hi there friends! Hope that you had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Our day was lovely and full of relaxation. Just what this momma wants! Today I wanted to share another Stitch Fix Box with you. My last post was so popular that I intend to make this a monthly contribution. In case you aren’t familiar with […]
If you’ve ever eaten a meal at our home, you know that I tend to over prepare. I never want anyone to leave our house hungry so I always tend to go overboard with the food. Which brings us to today’s recipe. When Kristie asked me to bring a treat to our get together, I instantly […]
Have you heard of Door to Door Organics? It’s a company that delivers organic fruits and vegetables to your front door. What makes this great is that the customer picks how often to get boxes and what size box to get. The order is easy to customize too. I get an email 5 days before […]
When I was invited to the Big Fork Brands Blogger Breakfast I was thrilled. Enjoying a delicious breakfast that I didn’t have to prepare and the chance to connect with other bloggers was worth the drive to the city. As I began to research Big Fork Brands Bacon Sausage my enthusiasm grew. It’s sausage made […]
My posts seem to be focused on adoption this week. I promise that this won’t become a blog completely devoted to adoption but that’s what’s going on in life right now. As we’ve begun the adoption process we’ve realized the financial commitment is significant. We’ve always known this was true but now that we are […]
Y’all sure know how to make a girl feel loved! Thank you, thank you for your kind words about our adoption. We are so excited for this journey and I felt like so many of you are celebrating with us! It brings me such joy. I’m so thankful for each kind comment, email, text and […]
Happy Monday Friends! I hope that you had a lovely Easter. We enjoyed a wonderful meal with dear friends. I love when guests feel comfortable enough to stick around once the meal is done. Our kind friends even hung around to watch the kids hunt for eggs. It was hilarious to watch! Bennett was thrilled […]
Growing up, I spent a month at camp every summer. My time at Kanakuk was a highlight of every year and I would have spent my entire summer there had that been allowed. I made life long friends, my faith was shaped and I had a month full of fun. It was a wonderful way […]
The number one questioned I’m asked when people find out that I write a food blog is how I manage to not pack on lots of pounds. This always makes me laugh because I eat plenty of the food I prepare. I just don’t eat all of everything I make! Lots of food that I […]
It’s hard for me to believe but it’s been 2 years since we got a call from my parents telling us they’d be moving to Lubbock. And not only were they moving to a new town but they’d both be beginning new careers helping start a new campus of the church I grew up in. […]
Have you ever been to one of those restaurants where you make your own stir-fry? I still remember the first time I ate at a place called Stir Crazy. My mom and I had come to Illinois to look for an apartment before I started grad school. This trendy style of restaurant had yet to […]
