So…I had a baby

So…I had a baby
19 October, 2016 / 4 Comments

Well, hello everyone!  Hope you all have been doing good!  So, I’m back…again.  Remember that time about a year ago when I went away for a while because I was pregnant?  And then I came back for a few months…and then went away again?  Well, I had my baby about 4.5 months ago.  Now that I am through the newborn fog and moving on to more of the sunshine and lollipops I was actually expecting to come of this (man, they are NOT KIDDING when they tell you it’s hard!  Seriously, people, listen when people give you advice about the […]

Hey there everybody!  I know, I know, it’s been FOREVER, right?  Well, I have a reason for my very unexpected hiatus… Are you ready for it?… I’m PREGNANT!  What?  I know!  It came as quite a shock to me and hubby as well.  But, I suppose it is time for us to start a family that consists of more than just the two of us and our furry friends.  We have been married almost 4 years, so sure!  It’s time.  Even though it was a surprise, we are definitely happy about it and cannot wait to start this new chapter of our […]


The Clash of Blogging and Summertime

The Clash of Blogging and Summertime
21 July, 2015 / 4 Comments

Is it just me or is it much harder to stay motivated and consistent with blogging come summertime?  I feel like there are so many things going on in the summer that my blog suffers because of it.  Life is busy at the best of times, but summer is even worse.  There are weddings, barbecues, travelling, and more!  These things make it difficult to have time for blogging…and even reading! Not to mention – who wants to just sit on a computer for however long to keep up with blogging when it’s so beautiful outside?  Especially for someone (like me) […]


What Makes a Good Blog?

What Makes a Good Blog?
9 June, 2015 / 7 Comments

After discussing what makes a good discussion post, I got to thinking about what it is that makes a good blog – a blog that draws followers and keeps people coming back.  There are many factors involved, I’m sure.  However, even if you do everything right, does it guarantee you will have lots of followers?  What draws others in and causes them to like your blog?? Design I see design as being a big factor when it comes to gaining followers.  I mean, really, it’s the first thing potential readers will see.  Before they even get to reading anything, they […]


Honey in Coffee

Honey in Coffee
5 June, 2015 / 5 Comments

I had this thought not too long ago about the possibility of adding honey to my coffee as a healthier alternative to sugar.  I checked online to see if anyone had tried it and what they had to say about it.  The results I found were people thinking you needed to add more honey than you would sugar or people dismissing the idea because they didn’t think it would dissolve properly in coffee.  So, I wanted to put my opinion out there and add it to the masses. I tried this idea.  I put the exact amount of honey as I […]

Blogging vs. Other Interests

Blogging vs. Other Interests
19 May, 2015 / 1 Comment

It’s strange.  I seem to go through spurts when it comes to blogging.  Sometimes (like when I recreated my blog into its current version), I am so into blogging and so excited about it and just want to post new stuff everyday (and actually think of things to post everyday)…But then come the times when I’m completely lacking motivation.  Either I completely run out of interesting things to talk about or I just don’t feel like blogging.  Sometimes I would just rather be doing other things. I have a lot of interests This is both a good and bad thing […]

For anyone who cooks regularly, likes to be organized, and loves convenience, you need to try this web app I recently found.  I am so in love with Plan to Eat.  I’m still in the 30-day trial, but I’m sold!  I plan on continuing to use this app after my trial runs out.  Plan to Eat is the best app I’ve found for grocery shopping, recipe-keeping, cooking, and organizing my meal plan. Adding Recipes Plan to Eat makes adding recipes a breeze!  All you have to do is install the app in your bookmark tab (which takes all of two […]


Why My New Meal Plan Works So Well For Me

Why My New Meal Plan Works So Well For Me
10 April, 2015 / 4 Comments

I’ve been trying really hard to eat healthy (and just to live a healthier lifestyle) for years now.  I’ve always struggled for many reasons: I hate cooking I hate grocery shopping I love convenience I’ve always found healthy food to be bland and boring I crave junk food However, a couple of weeks ago I tried something new, something that some call crazy and some love the idea of.  Since then, I barely struggle to stay on track! The Plan I heard about this plan where you cook a whole bunch of slow cooker meals all in one day and […]
