This post actually started out as a different post but it got so long that I broke it down and decided to share this part of it with you today!
Things have been SO CRAZY BUSY here lately… I can’t tell you about everything we’ve been up to but I will let you know about a few things we have been doing down below. We are so excited about EVERYTHING that is going on and we just can’t wait to SPILL THE BEANS with EVERYONE!
For now, though I’ll tell you about some of our latest adventures here in our little cabin.
A trip to the movies
We took them ALL to see the new Lion King and it was so GOOD! My oldest son was a HUGE Lion King fan when he was little… and I believe he may still be very partial to the original but my younger kids only knew about the new Disney version of the series.
Here’s a trailer for it if you haven’t seen it yet:
Do you hate spiders? Ok, well the ‘Itsy Bitsy Spider’ nursery rhyme is kinda cute but I don’t want any spiders anywhere inside of my house and neither do the kids. This video made me think of how my kids act when they see a spider:
I’d say I’m about an 8 or 9 on most days… I really don’t like a dirty house but I hated the smells of the chemicals but with Norwex we can clean super-fast with just a microfiber cloth and water! So easy! Continue reading “Question of the Day”→
So I’ve been posting quite a bit about my goals for 2019 but let’s not forget about all the good times we had in 2018. Sure, there were some sad times and some hard times but remembering the good times can help ease the pain of the not so good. Here’s a quick peek back on some of our pictures, posts, and activities from 2018:

I had originally written this series of posts in honor of National Simplify Your Life Week, which falls during the first week of August, I decided to make a shortlist of 7 easy steps that almost anyone can use to simplify their life starting today. With the New Year fast approaching I thought it might be helpful to post this again for anyone looking to simplify their life and have more FREE time.

I know, I know …. some of us just don’t want to think about Christmas shopping yet, even though I have already bought a couple of gifts. However, I am getting a lot of requests about what my kiddos want or what sizes they are wearing so I think its time to make up my list so I can send it to those people who have asked for information.
We have been using this company for over 2 years now and we love them even more than we first did! This is a great way to stock up on healthy options and save money too!
This is a company I had recently heard about and really wanted to try. Well, this past weekend we did pick up our order of veggies and I will say that I am very pleased!
I’ve been really busy this year and we didn’t put out a garden so being able to get farm fresh produce was a real treat. It looks just as good as if I had gone to the work of growing it and putting it up myself. Best of all the freezer is pretty well stocked for the next couple of months and hopefully, we will have enough frozen veggies to supplement the fresh ones I find until we can place another order.

What a better way to celebrate the changing of the seasons than with some fun crafts? This week we are doing some different Fall themed crafts so I’ll try to take some pictures and post them so you can use them in your home as well. Most kids love art projects and my kids love ones that involve scissors and glue. (They love glitter too but I’m not that brave today…lol.)
This idea would really work for just about any shape you like for any season… just find or draw your shape and let the kids decorate with torn paper, paint, buttons, beads, or things they might find on a nature hunt. Just have fun with it!
Ohhhhhh… sometimes I hate our internet… I had already written this cute little post with pictures and everything only to have our internet glitch and lose EVERYTHING!
So here we go again…
Today was a bit extremely hectic and I really didn’t feel like cooking want to cook but the little humans who had been EXTREMELY loud and crazy today were really getting on my nerves and Mr. Awesome had only asked me a few times what we were having for dinner so I figured that I should probably go ahead and get dinner started.
(Those freezer meals I put together the other day were really tempting me but Mr. Awesome had already seen ‘steak’ on the menu so freezer meals were ruled out.)
Oh my goodness, what a day I’ve had and it isn’t even been lunchtime yet. I actually went to bed early last night as I was just so exhausted. Mr. Awesome had a meeting and wouldn’t be home until late so I made the most of the evening.
The kids helped me make Chili Dog Casserole for dinner. We made it a little bit different as we just put the hotdogs into hotdog buns, instead of tortillas, and then spread the chili sauce on top and sprinkled with cheese before baking.

Do you feel guilty every time you grab that container of cleaning wipes from under the sink? I know I do, especially when it is so easy to make my own! Since we’ve gotten motivated to go further on our ‘chemical-free’ journey I have really been trying my best to eliminate nasty, toxic chemicals from our home in any way possible. These not only do that but they also save us a ton of money since we aren’t buying those expensive cleaning wipes anymore.
