When the kids come home from school with their backpacks overflowing with paperwork- it’s great if there is an organized space for them to unload it all, and a place for them to sit with you in the kitchen and tackle their homework. I spent a few hours recently re-working our kitchen workspace to make [...]

I love the idea of smart home technology. I want to be able to see who/what came up our driveway without having to leave my seat in my office a the back of the house. I would love to be able to double check that all of the doors in my house are locked without having [...]

The long holiday weekend has given the kids ample time to focus on Halloween at our house! The costume bins have been dragged out of the basement closet, they are begging me to take them to the local pumpkin patch to pick out their future jack-o-lanterns, and (perhaps most importantly), the candy corn has made [...]

Fo awhile now I’ve been wanting to freshen things up here on the blog. Not in a scrap-everything-I’ve-done-and-completely-rebrand kind of way…. (because that messes with your Pinterest traffic- big time!) but more of a let’s declutter-and-organize-the-site-so readers-can-find-my-good-stuff makeover. But before I got down to business on the cleaning up and organizing of my posts, I [...]

But this year, instead of putting yet another piece of candy into those trick-or-treat bags… I [...]

It’s really no wonder that my kids are constantly glued to some sort of a screen. Just look at me….. operating as a “role model”. I spend the better part of my day accompanied by my laptop- whether I am blogging, answering emails, making car pool arrangements for the kids, or even checking to see [...]

I know it is ridiculous to say this, since we have lived in our “new home” for over 9 months now…. but finally, FINALLY I feel as if we are making it our own. In the beginning it was all about unpacking, finding a home for everything, and getting moved in. Then came spring sports, [...]

One of the tastiest and most budget-friendly meals that I make for my family is chicken legs. They are juicy when roasted in the oven and made even more delicious when topped with a sauce. And if you marinate them in the morning when you are making breakfast then pop them into the oven for [...]
