I have a confession, I am in a war against stuff! It started about a year and half ago when my husband took me to the Philippines to visit where he lived for 2 years. I had seen poverty before many times, but nothing like this. They had less “stuff” than anyone I have ever…

School has started and I have a huge list of things I want and need to get done around my house. Project 5 year declutter here we come! Here is one little project that I did just this last week because I have a bit of an obsession with flavored oils and vinegars.  I want…

I found this secret a few years ago and it really works! Simply spray your feet with some spray deodorant/anti-perspirant and then spray the inside of…

Caleb and Davis are both on swim team this summer. It is tons of fun, but I was a little nervous about how many goggles I might be buying because my boys can not keep track of anything! On the first day of swim team I asked the other Moms how they marked their kids…

Lesson #1- Clothing is not simple.  Everything is in a set. With boys clothing, everything…

I love foil dinners! It’s probably half the reason I love camping so much. Cooking over a fire can be so fun and so frustrating at the same time. There is nothing worse than charcoaled meat and hard potatoes! I have been working on perfecting foil dinners for a long time and here are the…
