I know I’ve said it before, but Thanksgiving is hands down my most favorite holiday of the year.
I’ll be away from my blog the rest of the week, but just wanted to pop in to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Pasta is one of my favorite comfort foods. Thankfully, Dave and Nora share my love for this super frugal, super simple weeknight meal.
However, I recently had the desire to try substituting Spaghetti Squash for pasta in some of our favorite recipes… and today, I’m sharing our thoughts on this healthier swap!
Nora turned 3 on Saturday!
We celebrated with a super fun Curious George birthday party… complete with costumes 🙂
When it comes to parenting, I’ve had a 3-year crash course with one of the toughest instructors around — my 3 year old, highly-anxious, overly-sensitive, never-slept-through-the-night little girl.
So, since Nora’s THIRD birthday is tomorrow, I figured now would be the perfect time to share a few more of my thoughts on parenting…
It’s official, my friends… after over 2 years of living with a front door that opens directly into a wall (and creating a very awkward situation for all our guests) we FINALLY have a front door that opens the right way!
Not to mention, no more fancy glass or brass accents!
Baking Powder Drop Biscuits were a favorite of mine growing up — and now that I’m the cook, I realize how super simple they are to make (not to mention how easily they can adapt to many allergy restrictions).
If you’re looking for an impossibly easy dessert recipe that everyone will love, give these baking powder drop biscuits a try!
In the next couple of weeks, Christmas and other holiday cards will start filling up our mailboxes… but what will we do with those cards in another couple months, when the holidays are over?
Today, I’m sharing what I do with our holiday cards, and I’d love to know if you have any simple ways to reuse holiday cards.
Even though I don’t particularly love carpeting, I get SO many questions about the “best” way to care for carpeting, how to clean it, how often to clean it, what type of carpeting to buy, etc. etc.
So while I’m not an expert on carpet, I thought I’d share what I know and how I care for my carpets… and then leave the comments open for you to share your carpet tips and knowledge.
Dave and I have been using the Trash Buddy for the last couple of months — and I’m so excited to share it with you in today’s giveaway!
The Trash Buddy is a super simple solution to messy trash spilling out of your trash can or recycling bin… and let me assure you, your neighbors will appreciate that 🙂
Recently, a blog reader emailed me saying she was shocked that we had a Netflix membership. I figured she was going to rant and rave about how TV was the most horrible thing ever; however, she was actually thrilled to know we had a Netflix membership because (as she put it) it meant I had free time!
For those of you who have ever wondered what I do in my free time… here are a few of my favorite hobbies!
I know, I know… I’ve written at least one post on clutter-free gifts every single year since I started my blog. Most years, I’ve written several posts on the topic; and now, I even have a link to all my clutter-free gifts posts in my sidebar. I’m sorry — I just can’t help it!
Today, I’m sharing a few more of my thoughts on clutter-free gifts; as well as a whole bunch of clutter-free gift ideas and resources.
By now, most of you know that I’m a huge advocate for keeping our deep freezer fully stocked in an effort to save time in the kitchen and money at the grocery store. However, if I had to pick my #1 biggest time + money saver in the kitchen… today’s tip would be it!

Over the past 4+ years, as I’ve shifted much of my shopping online, I’ve had to come up with a functional way to organize all my e-statements, receipts, and bills.
Today, I’m sharing my extremely simple system that took me all of 5 minutes to set up and has been working well for me for a couple years already!
A few weeks ago, I shared a photo tour of our house… and over and over again, I got requests for a bird’s eye view and/or blueprint of our house.
So today, I have blueprints for you! I don’t guarantee they are 100% to-scale, but they will hopefully give you a better idea of how our house is laid out.
If you’re look for a relatively simple, yet very hearty meal, add this Chicken Parmesan to your upcoming meal plan!
