DIY Family Up Halloween Costume

If you are anything like me, you start thinking about your Halloween costume in July. For most of my adult life, I have always tried to make Halloween costumes for myself. Some were great, some were a big failure. Point being, I never spent an exorbitant amount of money on a “sexy werewolf” costume. Then I became a mom and the whole “sexy” costume thing didn’t really work if I wanted to be family-friendly. The first year of my daughter’s...

Summer is upon on us down here in Georgia and that means school is out. I know, I only have a 2.5 year old kid, but let me tell you, parents, I get it now.

Spicy Lime Fajita Chicken Tacos

Do you ever just feel like you don’t want to cook anything the few days before you go on a trip, even if it is a short one? Leaving a clean house before a trip was instilled in me at an early age and I never really appreciated it until I had my own house. I have realized that a lot of my anxiety is tied to the state of my house…okay the state of the most used areas of...
