How to Get Ready for the Day in Just Five Minutes


So last week, I did a thing. It wasn’t a huge thing, but it was something different than I’ve ever done before. I made a Youtube video. Now, lots of people have made Youtube videos before, but I haven’t really. Especially one of me half-dressed. Ok, this isn’t a naughty video (whew!) but I’m showing more shoulder than I usually…

How We Packed and Moved Our Family of 7 in Just One Week


So…it’s been pretty quiet around the blog lately because I’ve been a little preoccupied. Sorry about that. Life, you know. Actually, life amplified.

I Hate Cleaning my House – But Not as Much as I Used To! (FREE Printable Cleaning Schedule!)


I don’t know about you ladies, but cleaning is definitely not on my Top Ten list of things I love to do. It’s actually not even in my Top Twenty. Hmm…it’s not in my top anything. Because I don’t love to clean, I can’t wait to get that feeling before I start. I have to clean whether I want to…
