My 10 Favorite Camping Items

Happy Friday! We have had our camper about 4 months now and I am figuring out my top ‘must have camping items’ for each trip. In no particular order, here they are: •Brumate– if you like cold drinks instead of luke warm drinks, then you definitely need a brumate. I ordered one and quickly ordered…

Summer Makeup Tips + Tricks

Happy Monday!  This is the beginning of our last full week of summer break.  I am kind of sad about summer break being over, but also excited to get back to a routine! Anyway, here is a little tutorial on how I have been doing my makeup lately so it lasts all day in this…

4th of July

We had a great 4th of July, swimming at my in-laws and lighting off a few fireworks at home.  Normally, we host a big party at our house, but this year we skipped it.  I definitely missed it, and look forward to hosting a Husker football party or two this fall to make up for…

Photo of the day

Hey, Hey, Hey, Happy Sunday!  This past month has kicked my butt.  We have had gymnastics, baseball, t-ball, vacations, golf lessons, swimming lessons, piano lessons, VBS and finishing our basement.  I am not trying to complain, but am so excited for a less scheduled July.  Saying ‘no’ to things that aren’t essential and ‘yes’ to…

Copper and Denim Eyeshadow Tutorial

Well!  It has been a minute since I have posted anything and a good month since I have shared a tutorial!  Life has been busy lately, a trip to Estes Park, Colorado and Chicago- both were fun but I am glad to be home and getting caught up on laundry.  I am always amazed at…

Endless Options for a quick Breakfast

We have been in a bit of a breakfast rut lately so I have been working hard to change up our options! I asked my kids some of their breakfast options and they reminded me of our egg muffins we love.  The best part is you can add the ingredients you and your family love!…

Whole 30 Complete.

Yesterday, I completed my second full Whole 30.  I would be lying if I said I wanted to quit it 983,834,432 times.  I am really happy though I stuck it out and completed it.  I did my first Whole 30 in January of 2015 after I had my 4th child.  It was a great way…

Whole 30, Day #5

Today is my 5th day on Whole 30.  Have you heard of the Whole 30?  It is a 30 day reset designed to figure out food sensitivities by eating real whole foods and cutting out sugar, legumes, grains, dairy, MSG, carrageenan, sulfites, processed food and alcohol.  It is quite strict but the benefits are numerous….

Oh Monday.

We are back after a week long vacation in Minnesota!  It was a great week full of family time, games, relaxation, water skiing, crafts, golf and fishing!  I have been catching up on laundry, editing pictures and the day to day things this past weekend.  I will be getting to a regular schedule here soon,…

2 1/2 weeks Left of Summer Break

I can’t decide if that is a good thing or a bad thing that school starts in 2 1/2 weeks for three of my kids.  Part of me is so ready for more of a schedule and structure to our days and the other part is ready for time at the lake, backyard campfires, s’mores,…

Blogging again

Well, after about a year and a half break from blogging, I am at it again.  I will admit, it blogging kept me taking photos and documenting my family way better than what I have been doing.  I hope to use this space as a way to share some of my passions- adventures with my…
