    Bento Box Review

    If you are anything like me, you end up eating on the go far too often with your littles. Especially during the summer. It seems like even when I plan on eating at home we end up eating in the car or quick stopping at chik-fil-a. Which makes it hard to feed your kids a healthy lunch. So I decided that I wanted to start packing a healthy lunch for the kids. That can be a bit challenging and time consuming if you don’t have the proper tools. I went on an amazon search to find a solid lunch box that was affordable and worked well on the go for…

    How To Overcome Mom Burnout

    Like most seasons in life, motherhood comes with a long list of items that you never exactly planned for. You can read blog posts, watch youtube videos, and get all the parenting advice, but nothing seems to prepare you for it until you experience it. Before I became a mom, I read about sleepless nights, teething babies, and how to deal with toddler tantrums. But I never expected for those milestones to turn into yet another phase. We have three kids under five and it seems like at any given moment at least one of them is going through a phase. Just this week my completely potty trained three-year-old started…

    Back To School Shopping For The Minimalist Mom

    Like every holiday in our country, back to school shopping seems to be a big push for everyone to think they need to buy all the things. While of course there are items that will need to be purchased, you don’t have to feel that your little needs a completely new wardrobe and craft supplies. Chances are you have many items already in your home that will work perfectly for the school year. It is all too easy to get caught up in all the marketing ads and billboards and thinking that you have to keep up with what everyone else is doing. Chances are you’ve already purchased a good…

    How To Create A Personal Mission Statement

    Have you ever looked in the mirror and felt like you didn’t even recognize the person staring back at you? Exactly one year after I gave birth to our third baby, that happened to me. I went through an insane identity crisis. I spent the last few years raising three under three while supporting my husband through a very demanding lineman apprenticeship program. The term “I lost myself” was an understatement. I started and ran two successful mlm businesses during that time which were very beneficial to our family. But that summer everything shifted. I ended up closing my businesses and decided to start a blog because I knew I…

    How Minimalism Changed Everything For Our Family

    I sat in our bedroom and cried while I poured my heart out to my husband. We had an overwhelming week and I had reached a breaking point. “I don’t know how I can be all the things to all the people in this family. It’s too much. And there is not enough of me to go round” I said. We had three kids in three short years and I when I tell you it was a whirlwind,I mean it. Sometimes I feel like I blinked and three kids were staring at me calling me mama. At that moment, I knew something needed to change. I did not want to…

    How To Survive When Your Husband Works Long Hours

    There is something about being stuck at home by yourself with your kids for multiple days that can push a mama to a breaking point. Especially during bedtime. Spoiler alert for new moms: Bedtime routines are not fun. Even if you have implemented a consistent bedtime routine, it is still exhausting trying to get everyone everything they need and keep them all happy without losing it.

I am not exaggerating when I say that he…
