Does the term “Family Command Center” make you giggle, or is it just me' I picture myself behind the hull of a big spaceship or a submarine, shouting commands to my family. “Pick up the toys at 22:00 hours.” “Let’s circle back and put tonight’s dinner in the crock pot.” “Forward to swim lessons!” In reality, a family command center is a great way to create an organized space for all the happenings of ...

With the holiday season right around the corner, I must say that I love getting in the gift-giving mood! I love giving gifts and watching the happiness, surprise, and love across the faces of my friends and family. Isn’t that such a great feeling' Of course, I love gift-giving for all the typical reasons (because it’s heartwarming and fun, yada yada) but I’ll tell you a secret. There’s another reason why ...

Do you want to work from home? I’ve been there! Being a stay-at-home mom, working from home, and being able to watch your kids grow while providing for them in a goal of every mom. When my son was born, priorities majorly shifted for me. The thought of going to work every day was absolutely gut-wrenching. I wanted to stay home so bad I could practically taste it. But I had to ...

Blogging seems like a solitary job, but it’s not. In fact, if you go it alone you won’t experience the success, excitement and momentum you would if you connected with other bloggers. Through my blog, I’ve connected with some of the best people I know. The thing about bloggers is, a lot are (a tad) introverted. It’s tough to break out of your shell and get to know other bloggers, especially when ...

 I’m not about the gourmet food prep. I’m just not a foodie. Seriously, who has the TIME for all that chopping and stirring and whatever?? Life is way too short, people! Don’t get me wrong. I like yummy, delicious, fast and easy food. I aim for healthy, well-rounded recipes for dinner that my kids, husband and I enjoy (because NO WAY am I making separate meals for everyone). So, I’m always watching ...

I get asked a lot of questions about blogging. One of the most common is: “Is blogging a scam? Can I REALLY make money blogging?” See, when I talk about my own success (how I grew my blog from zero to a full-time income to a business in a few years) and share stories of other’s success, I know, it almost sounds too good to be true. (Believe me: sometimes it ...

I am not a foodie, but seriously, you guys, I love snack foods. (Like, WHO doesn’t?!) But as you know, snacks derail your diet like crazy. One minute you’re looking for a little treat to munch on and the next you’re elbow deep in a bag of chips and can’t button your pants. You need easy, healthy snack foods to enjoy NOW. You need snacks that don’t taste like diet food. I've ...

Who doesn’t love macaroni and cheese? Seriously, it’s a classic combination—gooey, cheesy, salty—the ultimate in comfort food. The best aspect of a basic mac and cheese recipe is the simplicity. It’s one of the few foods where the boxed version is practically as good as “made from scratch.” Mac and cheese easy to cook even for those with limited culinary experience. Store a box in your pantry or cupboard so you ...
