Last month we had a family reunion. It was so much fun to have (almost) all my sisters and their families together for a few days of fun. We had plans to go on a zip line, roast hot dogs in the fire pit, spend a day at the lake up the mountains, and play games in the backyard. The… View Post
Last week I came across a recipe for Lemon Creme Puffs and just knew I had to try them. Do you do that? See a recipe and run out to make it ASAP! I do. And this was one of those recipes that just spoke to me. Why? Because I love lemon, the creme puff recipe seemed so simple (I had… View Post
My daughter is a diva! She is the sweetest, most darling diva, but definitely a diva. And she is all girl. She loves dresses, “girl colors” as she calls anything not blue or green, and flowers. I love having a little girl to finally be able to make fun girly things for.

We use Greek yogurt in our daily green smoothies, I have a pancake recipe that I have started putting Greek yogurt into that is delicious (and the kids love pancakes), we use it in popsicles, cooking, everything! Seriously, we really love using Greek yogurt, but it can… View Post
