I am thrilled to be here blogging for Modern Day Moms! Since I myself am a MDM, I have lots going on and a seemingly shorter and shorter amount of time to get it all done every day. Sound familiar? After my son was born I was actually stunned at how difficult it was to knock things off the ever-growing to-do list…you know, stuff like “shower”, “feed self”, and “pee”. Somehow, here we are, 20 months later and still at it every day- thank goodness! I’ve been blessed with a kid who eats, eats, eats and eats some more so it’s my challenge to keep it healthy, interesting and delicious. The best way to do that, for me, is to cook 2-3 times a week. I make large portions so the meal lasts for at least 2 dinners and often a lunch or two as well, with some dishes I double batch and freeze half for a super easy dinner a few weeks later.
There is something about spring that makes me want to go into cleaning mode. I can imagine that I’m not the only one. However, the depth of which I want to clean goes beyond the typical everyday tasks.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. It’s the time of year we can show mom just how much we love and appreciate her. I’ve put together some creative ways to show Mom just how much she is loved on her special day:
First off, can I tell you about my love for coffee, chocolate and caramel? This blog post is a combination of all three: you’re welcome.
If you are a parent, chances are you have a pack of wipes handy at all times. After a few years, I finally got the bright idea to keep them in my car. You see, originally I tried the “no food or drinks in the car, ever” and then we’d go on a road trip or you know, a drive that is longer than 2 hours and that rule flew right out the window.
So full of girly-ness at the moment. #12monthsofmartha #marthastewartcrafts @ms_living
