First Winter Snow

The First Snow of Winter

I would say that it is the first snow of 2015, but those of us in the Midwest know that we’ve seen plenty of snow already in 2015. Mid-week last week the Chicago meteorologists started with the dreaded announcement that snow is coming our way. To be fair, they’ve said this multiple times before and […]

How To Eat Healthy During The Holidays

Easy Ways to Eat Healthy During the Holidays

Thanksgiving is just a few days away. We have three Thanksgiving dinners lined up this week so the chance of temptation is high and the chance of eating healthy is low. I fully plan on taking advantage of the wonderful Thanksgiving food we have lined up but there are a few ways I’m going to […]

Tricky Twenty-Two

Tricky Twenty-Two by Janet Evanovich

The wait is over Stephanie Plum fans, Stephanie, Lula, Morelli and Ranger are back in Tricky Twenty-Two by Janet Evanovich. It is no secret I fell in love with the Stephanie Plum series this summer so I couldn’t wait to dig into her newest novel.

Bulletproof by Maci Bookout

Bulletproof by Maci Bookout

When 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom first came out, I never missed an episode. I was a big fan of the show and Rebecca and I loved our Teen Mom & Wine nights throughout a few years. As the show became repetitive (how many times is Janelle going to wind up in jail) I […]

Early Morning Friday Favorites

Sometimes Friday morning is so exciting that we have to kick it off at 4:15am. Or at least Little Man thinks we should. As we sip chug our coffee, eat our waffles & watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse how about we talk about some of my Friday Favorites for the week. College basketball is back in […]

Six Month Difference

Six Months Ago vs. Now – Little Man Stories

A few weeks ago I was talking to a friend about how much Little Man had changed in the last six months. It is hard to see the differences on a daily basis, but when I look back to where we were last Spring to where we are now it amazes me how much he […]

Buddy Guy in Concert

Buddy Guy in Concert & Weekend Fun

It seems like lately whenever Monday rolls around it takes me a day or two to process our weekend. With only one thing on the calendar this weekend I was looking forward to a weekend of cleaning. You know you’re an adult when suddenly washing floors and cleaning up the yard become your weekend goals. […]



Two and a half days ago news broke that the city of Paris was under attack. As the evening unfolded we watched the death toll go up higher and higher and speculation of who was involved began. The world stood together this weekend when countries around the globe turned on their lights for Paris, the […]


Christmas Breakdown (Ritter University Book 3) By Vanessa M. Knight

Since I was on a Ritter University kick I decided to read Christmas Breakdown after fishing Major Renovations. I read the series a little out of order but the books don’t overlap too much to where I was confused at all about characters. We didn’t know too much about Nica, other than her status as […]

Major Renovations

Major Renovations (Ritter University Book 1) by Vanessa M. Knight

After reading What Happens in College I decided to go back and start the Ritter University series from beginning. Even though the books can all be read independently of each other, I really liked What Happens in College so I was looking forward to reading Major Renovations. Ski had played a very minor role in […]
