Super Bowl 2016 Must Haves

gameday food essentials

Super bowl is a special time in my family, and has been since the beginning of time. It's a day where we wake up and go to church; lingering after church on this day is strictly forbidden and highly frowned upon. We then come home and change out of church clothes faster than the speed of light. Seats are determined on a seniority status, meaning if you are an adult you get to lounge out full body on the couch, and if you are a child you likely are automatically downgraded to the floor. It's just ... read more

10 Minute Valentine’s Craft


Valentine's day is coming upon us, and If I'm being honest, it's not an observed holiday I give a ton of hoopla to. The super bowl rates higher on the totem pole.

I know it seems like a lot but I regularly use 4 different journals/bullet journals. I use my Leuchttrum notebook to map out all my list, keep track of months and weeks ... read more

Book of the Month –January


I knew when I finally picked up blogging again after being absent for some time that  I wanted to do a book nook reading club.

This year I'm all about making positive and progressive steps in my life. ... read more
