Sunday mornings, with church at 10am, were particularly “exciting”.  It usually started with one of us yelling “so are you getting in the shower?” from our bed to said sister down the hall in her bed.

Adventures in Applesauce

  Somewhere, deep inside, I’m a little bit of a prepper. Or at least a wannabe prepper. Not the weapon-hoarding kind (yikes!)….the living-off-the-land-and-being-able-to-survive-the-winter kind. How did the pioneer women of early America do it? I’ve been wanting to get better at preserving fresh food so this...

Posted by on Sep 30, 2013 in Be Whole, Faith | 0 comments

Monday, September 16, 2013 [Introduction] It’s been a little while since I last wrote. That was before my son entered into the world in our 1997 Nissan Sentra. Yes, it’s true.

Tales from a Dog-Mom….and protecting my family with PetArmor

Every now and then on momcoloredglasses, we get a chance to do a sponsored post for which we are compensated either by receiving a free product or a little bit of cash.

When I signed up to run the Best Buy sponsored 5K at BlogHer back in July, I knew there just may be some perks attached to it. However, I didn’t expect to walk away with one of these…a FitBit Flex!

A Healthier {and cute!} School Birthday Treat

What Makes You Smile? Kids, Vacations, and Healthy Teeth!

Thanks to FlossAndBrush.com for sponsoring this reminder to look for things that make us smile! My family spent the entire last week in a cottage about two blocks from Lake Michigan. It was the perfect week to be at the beach; hot, sticky, but with just enough breeze to keep the sand flies at bay. lake water was a balmy 75 degrees, and we even had...
