Bacon Mac and Cheese

Today I used the last pack of bacon that I bought with that gift card. My soul hurt opening it. Bacon is pretty expensive and I don't keep the freezer stocked with it. But I made sure to get the most out of this last pack. It all started with a late brunch. I'm not…

Father’s Day

Happy Father's Day everyone! We don't have a whole lot planned for it. Hubby prefers to keep his special days low key and inexpensive. I did use Michael's camera and made a photo collage for hubby's work desk. He hasn't had a photo of the kids since Lina was 3. $5 for a photo collage to…

Keeping Up With the S.M.

If you are thinking that this is some sort of 50 shades of whatever, you are wrong. S.M. stands for social media and I suck at keeping up with my accounts. I only have 1 personal account and that's on Facebook. My business accounts though... Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Snapchat (I don't use that…

Surviving Food Insecurity- The time between

This is the third part of a series covering my experience with food insecurity. For the introduction to this series, please click here. Lunch doesn't really have a set time around here. It's really just the moment when the kids realize that breakfast has worn off and it's time for a "pick-me-up". It is literally…

Lapbooks For Adulting

A lapbook is a folder that you use to organize info on a topic. It's usually a manila folder with little books and folds glued or taped onto it. It's really a homeschool tool. My kids didn't respond to it, so we don't use them.... Until now. A while ago I tried something called a…
