Satisfy those snack cravings with a delicious Trail Mix!

I am one of those moms that can never figure out what what we are doing for snack time. I try to keep things somewhat healthy, as my husband and I enjoy snacking as well. I struggled for the longest time to figure out something that we could keep on the go, but have at […]

Well, it’s the first week of August and summer is officially winding down in our house. School’s even started back already!

Velveeta Shells and Cheese… with a twist!!

Summer time is in full swing at my house, and that means really busy days! With two kids, we stay extra busy so to wear them out. After we get our morning chores and work knocked out, then we head off to the pool, where they can swim for several hours (and mom can do some […]
