Do you fall into the trap of buying food & drinks that have the word “diet” or “light” in front of it thinking you’re being a healthy influence on your family? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there are so many foods out there that try to come across as a healthier choice, but in the end they are just as bad, if not worse than their unhealthy alternative.

I am a combination of a stay-at-home mom mixed with a 12-hour-shift-working nurse. I stay home with my kids on week days, and work 1-2 weekend days a week. Whether I am at home or working, I like having the option to have a quick and easy, but delicious lunch ready to go in minutes. One way to make my life much easier is to meal prep protein to have throughout the week. My only problem with meal prepping is that I hate to eat the same thing over and over every day. I have found an easy solution to have the best of both worlds.

There is so much fanfare, energy and time put into hosting, planning, decorating and executing extravagant baby showers for the new mom to be. Which is great, and all, but what happens when the new parents are hit with the reality of caring for this new, cute, squishy little human that requires all of your time, energy and attention and you’re completely exhausted after most likely not getting any sleep? Most of the time there are dishes piling in the sink, loads of laundry to be done, your dogs haven’t been walked and life just seems to revolve around making sure you and your little one are surviving and thriving.

Make your own cute and shimmery glitter bowl in just a few easy steps. These bowls are so fun, but I have to warn you, they are not very sturdy and aren’t meant to hold heavy items. I am making another one in gold, too.

Have you ever made flatbread before? Did you make it the super hard way? What if I told you an easy way to make flatbread in less than 3 minutes? This recipe is easy, quick and great for nights when you don’t have much time between work and your kid’s baseball game!

Can we all just agree that the term “Morning Sickness” was probably derived from someone who never actually went through it?

We’re not gonna call it that anymore, okay ladies… because that’s a cute name some man made up to make it sound cute when you’re pregnant… but it ‘ain’t cute. And it’s not just in the morning… it’s all day, all the time. You are just sick… all… the… time. Let’s stop brushing it off by calling it morning sickness. Let’s call it how it is: a whole body experience during pregnancy that causes vomiting and nausea.
